This sixty-ninth episode is an excellent way to sustain your own personal heart-practices. We also hope it will be a supportive tool for you to offer to your clients, patients and colleagues.
Don’t miss this wonderful episode with our guest, Sarah Syed, a globally recognized 18 year old technology inventor, climate activist, and founder of You Are the Change, an international youth-led organization focusing on youth mobilizing action and mindsets to become sustainability leaders. Sarah has been recognized as a Top 25 Under 25 Environmentalist in Canada and named one of the Top 20 Under 20 in the World by Diversity in Action.
This is a truly inspiring conversation as Sarah shares her passion for taking action to make a difference and how on her journey she uncovered a profound truth – that the heart is essential for real change and progress. She has spoken at the United Nations to world leaders about the importance of leading with the heart and that the world has reached a critical juncture where our heart must be the captain of our ship of activism to guide us towards sustainable solutions, not just surface-level actions. As a passionate advocate for climate change, she astutely observes a disconnection between humanity and nature, emphasizing the need for the heart’s wisdom to reconnect us with each other and with our planet.
She talks with Deborah Rozman, our host, about the changes that young people she works with are committed to and how the compassionate power of the heart is what will enable us to all work together to create the changes we want to see.
The episode closes with a heart meditation creating a reservoir of energy we can each draw from to bring more heart to positive change initiatives we are involved in or passionate about.
