“Intentionality fuels the master’s journey. Every master is a master of vision.”George Leonard
“Perhaps we’ll never know how far the path can go, how much a human being can truly achieve, until we realize that the ultimate reward is not a gold medal but the path itself.”George LeonardT
he mastery process has been heavily researched — from the initial ignition of passion that makes us want to excel is some area, to finding a master coach who can lead you step by step, to engaging in deep practice that involves flow states which expand and contract time while pushing to the edges of failure, and embracing growth/progress as the ongoing goal, independent of outcomes.
That being said, our worldviews and our understanding of ourselves tends to shift as we pursue mastery, and our blind spots become highlighted as our higher-functioning lines of development are compromised by less-functional lines where we may be stuck, or moving slowly through.
So join us for a fascinating exportation of integral growth and mastery that goes far beyond the typical discussion of “10,000 hours”.
