   Where modern science meets ancient wisdom.
The Four Winds Society

Dear students and graduates,

After a long winter and the rebirth of Spring, let’s remember the gift of audacity. The seedling must trust that it will find the sun’s life giving energy at just the right moment. Laying in the dark soil the seed can’t see the way to the sunlight, but it places its trust in the urge to push upwards. To be audacious, you must act. 

The practice of audacity requires that we give up our endless ruminating about what might happen if we act, and instead simply follow our instinct, like the acorn reaching for the sunlight. 

What is it that you are longing to do? Take a vacation, a change in career? Perhaps just find a few more minutes in the day? Many of us have found ourselves longing for a change and the difference between wishing for a few more minutes, or a change in career, is the audacity of saying yes, boldly moving forward and seeing what you will bring forth.

The shaman lives audaciously by daring to act differently again and again. Now, as the sun remains longer in the sky it is time to plant the seeds of our intention, allowing them to burst beyond the dark into the light. We are living in a time of great challenges that call for bold, authentic and creative responses. 

Say yes to what it is you long for, and act audaciously.
