The Art of Shouting Quietly

Are you quiet?

Like Comment

Pete Mosely helped my first book be born.  He midwifed it from conception, through pregnancy into the world, calmly, patiently, reassuring me just to take one breathe at a time.

Talking with Pete is like a slow stroll in a meadow speckled with a myriad of wild-flowers.  He is so calm, considered, thoughtful.  I want to hang on to his every word because he think about each one, feeling the weight and texture of his words before expressing them.  He talks about connecting with people through our values for the long term and how taking it slowly is just fine.

Pete’s books; ‘Making your Creativity Pay’ and ‘The Art of Shouting Quietly’ support creative, quiet people share their gifts to the world.  They spoke to me.

I’m not good at blowing my own trumpet, at telling the world what I’m good at.  I get squirmy when people want to talk about me in a good way.  One of my regrets is the moment I told my dad to ‘Wait until after dinner’ to make the speech he had written for me for my 50th birthday.  Time moved on and he didn’t make it and later his wife told me how disappointed he had been.  My regret is greater as she died soon after and so dad never got to make that speech to me with her. All because it made me squirm.

I have illustrator Anita Wyatt to thank for the sell out book launch of Into the Woods because she just went out and told people to come whilst I hoped they would, and just ‘mentioned’ it.

So you can see why I’m drawn to Pete’s work and looking forward to his next book.  I am a work in progress in the art of shouting loudly.

Business as usual is no longer possible.  We need to dramatically shift how we think and live in order that the planet and all those people we share it with as well as our children's children, flourish.  This is the time of the Great Turning (Joanna Macy) and each of us can play our part in tipping life towards health and well-being for all.

Finding your thing or things can be the most radical thing you can do for your own well-being and for the well-being of the planet.

Work with me to create a life where your energy, health, social connection and emotional and social well-being are not just sustained, but improve, regeneratively. 

I am an author, educator and researcher who coaches individuals and organisations to find more regenerative ways of living and working in order to support the health of all peoples, the more than human world and future generations.

My work is based on wisdom from indigenous people, science, and my own direct relationship with people and the more than human world which have taught me about the interconnectedness of all things, and our dependency on each other for well-being.

There are more things to measure than income and status so let's start creating the world we want our grandchildren to live in.  It starts here and it starts now with each of us, daily.
