REINVENTING the watering hole
We gather from around the world through the internet.
We belong to each other.
We belong to each other. (1/2)

Karen A, Hawwah, Zina, Rachel, Anjana, Stacy, Jill,  Veronica, Shirin,  Arrey, Busayo, Sister Zeph, Anne-Chanta, Karishma, Jaclyn, Beatrice and about 1,500 other women are in the process right now online in zoom to REINVENT what it is to be a woman in 2020 while this complicated pandemic pause opens doors, streams our tears. We are listening to uplifting music, watching women tell their stories of empowerment, escape, freedom, and possibility. Thank you, Dr. Sam Collins. 

Many of us fortunate to already belong to this empowered tribe are rising up other women a thousand times today to join us. We are rising up together to hear where are our centers of Xellence, hearing sweat voices, silent voices reading their thoughts in the zoom chat. Whoo, ooo, mountains, we are climbing together, hand over hand, unafraid we are climbing thousands of lives higher. 

We are sharing links, hearing fresh myths from sheroes who have escaped lives they could not abide, finding hope in the most obscure personal stories. We are rising, reinventing, redefining what it is to be female, resolving to be better. How fortunate are we to be born in these bodies, these cyclical, frantic, emotion-filled temples of oceans of emotions. We are lionhess-hearted wrecking balls of the old ways. We are finding strength together. Turning up the volume on lives of meaning and impact. We believe in each other. We are fighters, lovers, friends, and encouragers. We are in this deep. We are in this for higher elevations. 

All these possibilities bring us vibrations of resonance. Xplosions of estrogen bouncers and double daring our relations to love us as hard as they can so we can give our most tender empathy in response. As Jane writes, "Men are frightened of menopausal women, they are strong, fearless, and in control of themselves." Are we afraid of who we might become together? Let us be fearless, limitless. We belong to each other. I previously had posted in that chat, "Would everyone who is in or has just joined World Pulse please post @WP so I can mention you in a story I'm writing right now about this inspiring Xperience please?" A flood of names followed. We see you. We hear you. We welcome us reinvented, reunited once again in RESOLVE December 3 & 4, 2020.

From Adriana Greenblatt, "hidden messages - that we absorb and tell ourselves over the years to keep us in the box: INTERNALIZED OPPRESSION!"

Ariel, said, "Regardless the why/how of reinventing, life is a panel to her course of self development. It's fun to show up and play with the Dr. Sam Collin's playground! I know there is another reinvention on its way. I am ready and hope others will join in as well!" Yes, we can all promote our strength of pulse together!

Throughout the chat over the two days, I invited dozens specifically to be our guests at  TEDxVail COUNTDOWN climate action online event this Saturday from 2-5 pm MT. TEDxVailCOUNTDOWN. We'll see how real the showing up for each other can be. I danced a mini rap of gratitude as a testimonial of the joy of being in this community these two days. 

Quite simply today was epic, a standout among many sad tragedies of 2020. Today with Aspire-stunning, one of the best days I've had in 2020!

Resolve to join us December 3 & 4, 2020. Finish this disrupted year on an upbeat note. I Xpect it to be an amazing completion for 2020!

Recordings from these two magnificent days.

DAY 2 - October 15th 2020 Reinventing Other 

If you know others who would benefit from the recordings, please pass them on.

Dear Kat,
It was so great enjoying these two days reinventing with you!
The power of the sisterhood of World Pulse could not be missed. Thank you so much for such a powerful and engaging recap of these two days. Thank you for the expert shot of the participants. I see you all!

I will be grate to be present for the next and I pray it be more inclusive as well.
Wish you all the best for tomorrow's conference. I will be cheering in spirit as I have a full day tomorrow with little time to be online.
Waiting to read from you on that.

Hello Kat,
Thank you for the upbeat executive summary to Re-Invent. Thank you for sharing the recordings too. Need a re-listen because the conference began at midnight my time, and it was difficult to remain alert and engage after a full-on day of life and parenting. I'm glad I get another chance :)

Hello, Kat,

So glad that you wrote about the Aspire Reinvent Conference here! It was a momentous moment indeed, and I am so happy you expanded your network with other women trailblazers worldwide.

Thank you for sharing these screenshots and the recordings. How incredible you are! I love your energy in the chat messages. Like Nini, the conference began at late night for me as well. So I had sleepless nights last week, and got exhausted.Haha.

But now I'm back on encouraging on World Pulse, and I am delighted to come across this post from YOU! Oh, dear, I missed that TEDTalk you organized. Thank you for the invite! Please stay awesome, dear.
