The change that has to take place, has to take place inside... It is my response, it's my attitude to suppression that I have got control over, that I can do something about. What I need to develop is Self-knowledge. I need to know how I tick, when I collapse, where my formidable points are, where my weaker points are.
When do I give in and what will I stand up for?

Scilla concentrates on what the world really gets drawn to, what the world sees, which is energy. She helps people with living the life they want, with good health, a sense of our own sensuality and how useful we can be. She believes, like we also do, that: Peace is possible!
During this years' conference on October 6th and 7th, Scilla shares with us how to combine inner power with outer action. Next to that, she will join a women's panel; four strong and inspirational women (including Lama Tsultrim Allione), will be sharing their vision of female leadership and how to embody the feminine qualities (FemmeQ).
There is no greater wrong than living in fear. There is no greater misfortune than having an enemy. There is no greater illusion than trying to defend yourself. Whoever is free from all fear, will forever be safe. This is the time for you to deeply compute the impossibility that there is anything but grace. This is the time to know that everything you do is sacred.
Dr. Scilla Elworthy will be sharing her wisdom at Wisdom in Business too, find more information about this sister-event, which will be on Friday October 5th, here.
