41 Practice: Rooting in Desire with Samia Abou-Samra & Ije Ude of Turtle Tank
What is your WHY? This is an amazing practice for creating a Purpose Statement that discerns and names your inner DESIRE, for the sake of clarifying your work and essence.
Samia Abou-Samra and Ije Ude of Turtle Tank lead us through an exercise that will require something to write on and write with, and can be done individually or in a group. You'll want a good period of time - around 40 mins - to really drop in. If the pacing between questions is fast for you, feel free to hit the pause button and take as long as you need between prompts. Your own pace is the right pace.
See the episode prior to listen to the conversation with Samia & Ije about SACRED WORK & RADICAL PURPOSE. They teach us how desire is core to finding the work that will point us toward personal and collective healing, how we must work in a free and loving way rather than "toward" love and freedom, and how to center ways of working that actually work for us rather than leaving us wondering why it's so exhausting to try to keep engaging.
Turtle Tank: School for Radical Purpose is a radical modern-day mystery school where we ignite Radical Purpose, support the evolution of consciousness and harness creative power to bring forth worlds of Radical Love and Freedom. Our aim is to reintegrate old and new wisdom into practical tools to revolutionize all of our diseased human systems and evolve into worlds of ever deeper balance.
