We are all operating in a waking sleep where our habits of behaviour, thinking and feeling are running the show.
If we are going to break free from our conditioning we need to wake up. Waking up means making a conscious effort to know who we are and what we are doing. To become all that we can be we must start with knowing exactly where we and who we are.
The purpose of the map is to assist in this process of waking up. My Map to Freedom is a visual container that holds all that you are, allowing you to witness, explore and transform your understanding of who you are and why you are here. Sacred traditions from around the world are united in stressing the importance of self-awareness. We are required to be vigilant, to observe ourselves and to bring mindfulness to ourselves and our activities. We are called upon to see the mechanisms of our personality. My Map to Freedom provides you with a simple tool to be able to do this more easily.
It can be used in four broad applications:
It will develop your awareness of the ways you typically close off and defend when around others and grow your capacity to respond from a place of authenticity, intimacy and realness. It offers a simple method of understanding why you do the things you do in the context of real relationship challenges.
As a leader of others it is no longer enough to simply lead by example. Nowadays employees require that as a leader you 'show up' and share who you are. The call to be more authentic has never been greater than it is now, yet most of us do not understand what being an authentic leader really means. My Map to Freedom equips you with the tools to achieve greater authenticity everyday.
It will develop your awareness of the ways you typically defend against life and grow your capacity to integrate old patterns of closure and protection. It offers a simple method of inquiry that allows you to mindfully integrate trapped emotional patterns.
It will provide you with an approach for learning how to be fully alive no matter the circumstances. The map offers a simple practice that meets the challenge of maintaining this aliveness in daily life without requiring the presence of a teacher, a special environment or the energy of a group exploring together.
