The name is an adjective coupled to a word that is both a noun and a verb. The combination embraces what I am trying to share and describes the dialogue I am hoping to inspire.

For most of us the adjective sacred means that a topic is set apart for special meaning and significance. For some it may stand for religious grounding; for others, core values; for still others, that which is of deepest importance. Maybe it is helpful to think of the sacred as the quality of the needle that points us to the magnetic north of our inner compass.

Lead is both a noun and a verb. The noun comes from deep personal work I did several years ago with some very gifted equine healers. The lead is a rope used to encourage a horse to move in the direction you intend. It is a connection that aligns two sentient beings.

And this brings us to the verb. When mutual trust and congruence are acknowledged and honored, the physical rope is not needed for the horse to follow. In the broader sense the verb lead means to inspire others to bring a shared vision to fruition. As a coach I work with many individuals who are intent upon transforming their own lives and the lives of their loved ones, clients and colleagues.

Putting all of this together, Sacred Lead explores a variety of topics, including inspiration, spirituality, healing, coaching, personal development, transformation, leadership, service and growing older. Please join us in contributing your perspectives.
