Sneak peek

Once we crossed to the other side, we realized that what still lay ahead of us was less than what we had walked already over the course of the week – a powerful metaphor for one’s own life and existence. We lived the first hours of the day in silence, crossing through beautiful oak and pine forests. It was a perfect setting to continue reflecting on the work we were doing, supported by exercises that helped us recognize what really mattered in our professional and personal lives and leave behind the burdens we didn’t need. Everything is important, but not equally important. Today, we had to decide, focus, and progress by identifying the milestones and opportunities that would support our evolutions from our current states to our future goals.
