Let Truth

Let truth be your walking stick.
Integrity each step.
There is no tomorrow or yesterday,
just this moment of awe at the gift of life
with all its beauty and challenges.
The leader within you does not parade for attention,
speaks from compassion and wisdom and understands
we make one person as we move through our living.
Our walking stick is made of the beauty of the earth,
carved with the intent of justice and equality for all.

Autobiography in Five Chapters

I walk down the street.
There is a huge hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I’m lost…hopeless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a huge hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend that I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe that I’m in the same place again.
But it isn’t my fault.
Still, it takes me a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a huge hole in the sidewalk.
I see it.
Still I fall in…it’s a habit.
My eyes are wide open.
Already I know where I am.
It’s my fault.
I climb out quickly.

I walk down the same street.
There is a huge hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

I walk down a different street.

Why Center & Connect™?

Center & Connect™ is a core practice for leading from center.
It promotes internal coherence. It's essential for leading as your "best self" when that's difficult. It strengthens you to create what matters in your life with greater presence and aliveness.

Something very special happens when we engage in somatic centering practices together.

Especially now as we step forward in the daily challenges of a world upended by a pile-up of life-changing circumstances, we need connection. Not busy, distracted, demanding connection. Connection that allows what IS,
loosens the grip for greater resourcefulness and resilience, and embraces what is emerging for us now.

There's a quieting reset; we can hear and feel what is otherwise drowned out by the noise we live in. There's a compassionate listening. As we share what we're noticing and redirect our sensing to what's essential, a kind curiosity or affirming clarity emerges. Learning with and from others in this quality of presence is thoroughly refreshing. There's a refueling, re-energizing, and refocusing.

Join us and you'll see!

Beata C. Lewis, JD, Master Somatic Coach

As an Executive Coach, I bring over 20 years experience and a passion for partnering with business owners, entrepreneurs, and knowledge professionals to lead their way forward with greater trust, creative presence, and wisdom. My clients have transformed themselves and their situations in the face of disruptive change, persistent obstacles, and inspiring opportunity. They bring more of their authentic self to conversations and practices at the heart of effective leadership and innovative collaboration. They become more choice-driven and skillful confronting conflict and difficulty, navigating complexity and change, and engaging people to co-create at their best.
