What Fear Can Teach Us

Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is.

- -German Proverb- -

What Fear Can Teach Us

We all have fears, some of which can be quite vivid for those with active imaginations. As children, weĆ¢€™re encouraged to think of fear as a weakness, something we must conquer, fight, or overcome. In this TED Talk, Karen Thompson Walker invites listeners to conceptualize their fears in a different way: as stories. Fear is an unintentional form of storytelling, she argues, with characters, plots, imagery, and elements of suspense. Drawing on the story of the men from the whaleship Essex, Walker challenges us to view ourselves as the authors and readers of our fears, and shares how this perspective can have a profound impact on our lives. { read more }

Skateboarding Like a Girl

Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of.

- Bethany Hamilton -

Skateboarding Like a Girl

Behind the sweet, innocent eyes of a young girl is a strength of resolve, waiting to show the world what she's made of. Sisu - the Finnish word for 'determination, courage and resilience' - is this spark of strength that Chloe Chick - mother, and founder of the organization 'SisuGirls' - aims to inspire in young girls all over the world. Believing that the experience of stumbling and failing when faced with challenge brings out the capacity to grow, Chick's mission is to empower young women to find their inner strength. Creating the confidence to inspire these girls to chase their passions with courage, the online and in person programs of SisuGirls centre around sport and adventure activities which nurture their own Sisu nature. More in this short video. { read more }

Be The Change

Find your own inner Sisu - why not try a new and challenging physical activity to explore your own courage and sense of adventure? For more inspiration, join this week's Awakin Call with Ulrike Reinhard, the woman behind the Barefoot Skateboarders of Janwar. More details and RSVP info here. { more }

The Remarkable Story of An Artist Who Never Spoke a Word

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

- Henry Ward Beecher -

The Remarkable Story of An Artist Who Never Spoke a Word

Judith Scott was born deaf and with Down Syndrome. She never spoke a word. Beginning at 7 years old, she spent much of her life in state institutions, up until 1986 when her sister Joyce was awarded legal guardianship. While living with Joyce, Judith discovered Creative Growth, and her love of creating art. She spent the rest of her life, up until her death in 2005, creating remarkable art that offered a window into her soul. Here, Joyce opens up about her sister's life and journey. { read more }
