Power of She- Interview 1

I hope you are well. As many of you know, a big part of my work in the last decade has been in supporting men and women to bring their full selves to work and home. With that said, a lot of my work has been supporting women of all ages and stages. I have supported younger women students at Stanford, middle and older age women that are helping professionals who attend my professional trainings at UC Berkeley, thousands of women in my workshops, public classes, and meditation retreats, women leaders at work, and women clients who I support as an executive life coach. I feel incredibly honored to have supported so many women to find their voice, bring their full self forward, lead from what really matters, and change patterns that are not serving them, so they can be their best and brightest selves.

As I shared last week, for the next few weeks I am inviting you to join me and thousands of others to take one specific action step everyday around a certain theme towards saving the planet. Yes!

Today, I wanted to talk with you about Satyagraha.

What is Satyagraha?

“Satyagraha” is a compound of the Sanskrit words satya (meaning “truth”) and agraha (“polite insistence”, or “holding firmly to”). Satya is derived from the word “sat”, which means “being”. Nothing is or exists in reality except Truth.

Truth therefore includes:

  • Truth in speech, as opposed to falsehood
  • What is real, as opposed to nonexistent
  • Wholesome, as opposed to evil, or bad.

​​​​​​​This was critical to Gandhi’s understanding of and faith in nonviolence: “The world rests upon the bedrock of satya or truth.… READ MORE...
