This Week's Episode: Drumming Up Business!In a competitive corporate climate, how can our most primal and natural expression serve to unite? What means can be created through which inclusion, collaboration and authenticity become the norm? How can we elevate our own mental fitness and in doing so contribute to the inspiration of others? The circle is a powerful symbol for the eternal flow of life, and the sacredness of all that resides within. The drum is an ancient healing agent, used to facilitate unity both within the soul of man and the soul of humanity. A radical approach perhaps, yet a tried and true method of diffusing and resolving conflicts caused by self-aggrandizing perspectives and the debilitating absence of joy. Watch competitive posturing and its advocacy for the importance of status relinquish its hold on exclusion and forge open and honoring relationships. By drumming up the consciousness of those that do the work, the energy of your business will be remarkably enhanced!. Listen to episode below.

Excerpt from "Drumming Up Business"
There are many innovative ways to ‘wake up’ the individuals that comprise our corporate culture, but few, very few that can create and sustain change, as according to Judy’s experience, change is short lived and becomes business as usual. Her commitment therefore is to ‘drum up’ not just an experience, but offer up a truly transformational practice. A practice that touches into key spiritual principles that call the individual into connection with the sustainable power of their true natural nature.

With Guest Karen Russo, MBAListen Here
In support of the action taken through this program towards creating a new corporate humanity.
Spiritual wholeness cannot be realized solely within an intellectual pursuit. We are called to return to the mother, the heartbeat, a time in essence and consciousness where our life was pure potentiality. The drum workshops Judy facilitates in the corporate world, moves individuals from me to we, from fear to love, from their individuality into their common-unity…back into the natural recognition of their primordial comfort…..in less than 15minutes! Amazing!!
Trying to find out what such an alive and vibrant facilitator of joyful connection to one’s own humanity does to sustain her own center, was easy! Daily spiritual practice to anchor my visions of grandeur and keep them just a step in front of me so that I may keep walking towards them. Judy reminded me that true transformation requires consistency of attention on our intention and lots and lots of play!!!!!
