Wholehearted Living : Come Home Together & Alone – the essential invitation of Covid

It started as a post in facebook and the realization that the core invitation of the Covid virus is to walk each other home. One thing led to another and I offered a 7 day, 1 hour a day  Slim Journey on Zoom to explore the 7 dimensions of Home! The 7 dimensions were: Relationship with our Body & Health (the most vital focus that Covid is making- take care of your Immunity!), Our intimate relationships (how being caught in the matrix of work and seeking this and that we have lost touch with heart connections that matter most- our … Continue reading Wholehearted Living : Come Home Together & Alone – the essential invitation of Covid

MAD Conversations ! (Mastering the Art of Deep/ Difficult Conversations)

We live so that we may learn to love. We love so that we may learn to live. -Mikhail Naimy At the heart of living, learning & loving are human Relationships. It would not be an exaggeration to say that human relationships are the cause of the deepest human challenge, pain and joy.  Whether it is in the professional, personal or the social worlds we inhabit. Conversations – difficult and deep, intense and profound, intimate & professional, at home & at work, in love and in conflict. Conversations are at the heart of human Relationships. And therefore essential in the … Continue reading MAD Conversations ! (Mastering the Art of Deep/ Difficult Conversations)

My journey with GFT (God’s Freedom Technique)

After I attended the 3 day GFT workshop in Oct 2021, it brought a profound ease (sukoon) and freedom in my life.  My search for spiritual awakening ended  without any Self-realisation.  In the workshop, it was revealed that how Self-realisation is not important, but what is important is our Soul, which is trapped in the Matrix, for it to go back Home. It was revealed who Eternal God from beyond this universe, from beyond all religions and spirituality is, and who is imposing as the Eternal God in this Universe and in our religions.  I discovered what “true” awakening is, … Continue reading My journey with GFT (God’s Freedom Technique)

What is your Heartistry? (& Heartistree 🙂)

Who would Kiran be without the Tao? .. Raj Mali, a beloved friend, coach, healer and more.. asked me this question recently, which led me to explore what is my essential art and somehow this word, rather, this world surfaced.. Heartistry.  In the  3 journeys of one month of Tao 2.0 on Zoom this year a few arts weaved together with the Tao and gave birth to Heartistry which became Heartistree .. it brings the world of Trees into the game.  1. The heart of many arts– especially singing, story crafting, writing, dance, film therapy, visual art, and possibly – baking, gardening, etc. And how it can enable you to discover your unique heartsong. A … Continue reading What is your Heartistry?

Collaborative Coaching … The art of Inspiring Together

As I and my colleagues dive deeper into the incredibly magnificent world of Coaching, indeed the depth of being, we are discovering newer layers, nuances of what we call Radical Coaching which gave birth to quite an intriguing Radical Coaching Journey. Somehow this image really spoke to me. Collaboration is simple and profound. Natural & yet, often missed. As the world is getting polarized on one hand and there are energies of fear in the air, it is also inviting a dive into Love. Out of a challenge that we encountered in a client assignment, there was a lot of … Continue reading Collaborative Coaching … The art of Inspiring Together

The paradox of Confidentiality

In a beautiful Coaching assignment, where many of us have come together to coach and learn together with several CXOs in a global giant, the question of Confidentiality has arisen as a vital question. And there are differing perspectives. Whenever there are two different and seemingly opposite perspectives, it is time to see the multiple perspectives. And one way to do that is to remind myself that any seemingly polarity is inviting an embrace of a paradox. Any conflict is an opportunity to dive deeper into the ocean of Co-creation. I am reminded of a favourite quote: “Truth is a … Continue reading The paradox of Confidentiality

Love is your compass, ply, my Ark!

Mirdad: God is your captain, sail, my Ark! Though hell unleash her furies red Upon the living and the dead, And turn the earth into molten lead, And sweep the skies of every mark, God is your captain, sail, my Ark!

Faith is your anchor, ride, my Ark! Should thunder roar, and lightning dart, And mountains shake and fall apart, And men become so … Continue reading Love is your compass, ply, my Ark!

Multiplying Inspiration Together (“Ecosysteming”)

In Oct 2018, I was invited to be a panelist at the first ICF Coaching Conference. On the panel of “Eastern Wisdom in Coaching” because of the Tao being the heart of my life, work and lifework 😉 The panel was being anchored by CN Murthy, the Chair of the ICF Mumbai Chapter, also my former boss when I used to work at ITC in early 1990s. There were 4 of us on the panel with not a lot of time. I requested him that I would like to speak at the end. I find that I effortlessly weave threads … Continue reading Multiplying Inspiration Together (“Ecosysteming”)
