Four Pillars of Freedom with Adah Parris
What does it mean to be free? What could that feel like? How do you get there?
Writer James Baldwin once said
“Freedom is not something that anybody can be given. Freedom is something people take, and people are as free as they want to be”
In this self-reflective session you will explore what that really means for you, by examining four pillars of freedom.
to match your internal beliefs with your external story, to be unapologetically yourself, to be more human in this increasingly digital and “always on” world of distractions.
to reflect on the labels, your roles, behaviours and responsibilities within the systems, structures, cultures we find or choose to immerse ourselves in.
to nurture your passions and impact that you want to have in the world through the way you money.
How to truly “find the others” to create transformational relationships communities in states of flow?
This introductory session will help you start to create a blueprint to be as free as you want to be. At the end you will make a plan to do one thing for 30 days that helps you connect with yourself and remind you that intimacy starts with you.
