NEW LIFE OUT OF THE OLD

As our plane to Singapore was taxiing out to the runway John was listening to
his phone messages that had just posted. His face got very pale.

He had gotten the message that my younger brother Bruce had died. It was not unexpected he had been sick for years and had recently had 4 surgeries to try to keep him alive.

But still it was very sad news and there was no way I was returning from Singapore.
John & I had been to NJ visiting him several weeks before and got to spend time with him and Judy.

My cousin Carol Schwartz , who some of you met, stepped in and arranged the funeral service and held the Shiva (visitation after the service) at her house.
Thank G-d for Carol and her husband Jerry and their kids.

By all reports the service was beautiful and the people who attended the service spoke about my brother and remembered the good parts of who he was.

So 2 Mondays ago I began the customary practice of saying the memorial prayer (Kaddish) for my brother twice a day for a year. Sometimes alone sometimes with John's help and sometimes with the help of the Jewish community in Singapore.

This ritual has helped me mourn the loss of my brother every day and it has allowed me to grieve even though I was not at home nor was I with my extended family.

It is not a prayer about death it is a prayer about life and a belief in something bigger then yourself. It reaffirms life as you mourn the life of someone you lost.

New Life Out of The Old

But it also brought me closer to Jews from all over the world and to a community in Singapore I probably would not have gotten to know if Bruce had not died.

New Life Out of The Old

I tend to believe that this is the purpose of mourning someone:

To bring new life out of the old and in that way, the person you lost lives on in the new life & connections created.

Yes I feel sadness and pain over Bruce's loss & I will for some time.
That sadness and pain does not prevent me from honoring him and his memory with creating New Life Out of The Old.

  Continuing your Women Moving Forward� experience 

 
If you have ever thought, "I wish I could hear Susan's voice again" or "I want to re-visit what I learned in WMF� now that my life has changed" then

Advanced Women Moving Forward�
REVIEWING or
OBSERVING

could be an option for you!

Because women's lives occur in stages: singledom, marriage, kids, etc. we always had the option for women to return to the workshop when they entered a new stage.

Here are the 3 options graduates can use to attend WMF� again:


Attending Advanced Women Moving Forward�

The 2 day workshop will have you focus on:
 
Your purpose in life and how to live a more purposeful life.

Completing Declarations of Self

Creating new Declarations


 
Reviewing

In this option you are actually a full participant. You do a pre-call and pre-work and participate as a full participant!

You will need to be present for all 3 days and do all the workshop exercises.

The cost is 50% of the total cost of the workshop. So here in the US reviewing currently costs $1875


Observing

In this option you sit at the Observer Table and do the exercises from that vantage point. You can "observe" where you are now and where you need to be next. You participate only silently from the back of the room.

Observing affords you the flexibility to come and go as you please (except during the completion exercise).

You do not participate fully and only speak to the room if asked to by Susan

The cost to Observe is $250 in the US and $450 in other countries.

In every workshop we do we have limited spaces for Reviewers and for Observers.

If you think you will want to Observe or Review please let us know so we can reserve your space.

Next Opportunities to Observe or Review are next week in Cincinnati and in October in Geneva. I look forward to the possibility of seeing some of you soon!

Susan

 2015 Women's Leadership Retreat  FULL 

2016 Women's Leadership Retreat  only 7 spaces left
 
 
2014 was a very impactful Women's Leadership Retreat�

The issues we discussed were control & mortality. Both topics are timely for most women. Not being able to control your life or your work or even your calendar is common these days. This is especially timely with all the change & churn that has become common in your organizations. And most women are responsible for aging parents and are experiencing health problems from increased stress at work.

When you give up the illusion that you control anything except your own reaction to something you unburden yourself from responsibility you can't possibly shoulder. When you
face we are all mortal and life is limited you start to re-order your life and live more in the moment.

You also stop beating yourself up & feeling guilty for results you were never in control of to begin with!

2015 WLR� is full and 2016 already has 7 spaces left. So if
plan to attend in 2016 please register ASAP!
 

 The Couples Course�   FEBRUARY 13-15, 2015


Budha point
You say it better! Here's what participants said about the first ever Couples Retreat in Hawaii:     
 
"Thank you John and Susan, We leave Hawaii tonight better people and a better couple."

"Thanks for ALL you did and continue to do for us and so many people. We are so grateful to have been here with you both and the other couples. Some who will be lifelong friends."

"The Couples Retreat was insightful and inspiring for both of us at many levels and the beautiful location provided the perfect opportunity to disconnect from distractions and reconnect with each other at a much deeper level. It was a privilege to interact with Susan and John and learn how they have continued to develop and live out their purpose as  individuals and as a couple. Their 35 year marriage serves as a role model for all relationships based on true love, respect, and mutual support."

Act now to reserve your space for 2015
Space is limited to 10 couples only! Only 2 couple spaces left!

 Course fee $2,750/couple. Yes that's 2 for $2750!

Here are some quotes from the evaluations of the last
Advanced Women Moving Forward� Workshop:

"I understand the boundaries that go along with my role,
I will be able to make more efficient decisions"


"I have a greater sense of clarity over my life....this has given
me the opportunity to start with a clean slate. I am more in touch with myself..."


"I am more purposeful and can lead from a higher level....
I am more 'in the moment' because the distractions are being
removed"


"...(I'm) not alone in my experience, support is so helpful...
like a renewal of WMF� to a further degree"

"I will live more on purpose at work which will make me more
effective in my role...as a leader. This will benefit my company.."


"I plan to move through breakdown as quickly as possible"

"I am more centered and more on purpose which will help me
make clearer decisions and improve productivity"


"Knowing that breakdowns are opportunities to learn
information to move back into creation vs viewing them as a
dead end"


"I will focus on 'who owns the problem' and delegate the
solution to them"


"I have let go of old declarations and am refocused on the
path forward"

 
 

WOMEN"S LEADERSHIP RETREAT�

   

 
 
The 2014 Retreat� Dinner on Thursday PM

One of the participants in this year's Women's
Leadership Retreat commented it was the MOST IMPACTFUL
gathering of women she has ever attended.   

That is what The Retreat� is; a place for women,
at director level and above, to be so they can
feel the support of other women and personally
and professionally grow from that experience.

No matter how successful you are there is always
more to develop and grow.

                                OBSERVING 


Observing is a WMF� graduate program that includes 

attending the workshop and looking at how far  

you have come since taking the workshop. It also helps  

you to keep the learnings you got as impactful as they were  

when you took  

the workshop. 

 

 The side benefit of Observing is supporting the women  

attending by modeling what it is to complete the workshop.

If you would like to Observe any of the community based  

workshops in 2011 all you need to do is contact us to make  

a reservation and pay the $250 fee. Seats in each  

workshop are limited and are given on a first come  

first serve basis.

 

Four Graduates in Europe Observed the Frankfurt workshop

last year. 

 

You do not have to be at all three days of the workshop.  

You can  be at one day or several or you can come for an afternoon.

The schedule is up to you when you Observe.

 
Some Graduates bring their workshop buddies with them  

to Observe and some bring their old notebooks!
