Heroism, Dependency & Exit Strategies: an interview with Batman

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

(Batman ‘Word’ by Defiant Ant) I’ve always wondered, is it lonely work, being a superhero?  It’s not so bad. I have Robin. Right, but a sidekick is not quite the same as a friend is it? Maybe not. But he does admire me, he looks up to me. My point exactly. A friend loves you, […]

Interview with a change-maker: Tanya Geisler on the wisdom of the tribe

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

When I was living in the Gaza Strip I had a friend whose parents were, as was traditional in their community, helping her find a husband. They would select young men who they thought would be a good match for their daughter, and invite them over to the house for tea. My friend would take […]

Change-maker interview: Emily L’Ami

Friday, November 11th, 2011

I believe we can make all our choices into acts of conscious change. Even the ones that might seem superficial, like what we wear. And as it turns out, ‘what we wear’, like ‘what we eat’, is not superficial or trivial at all. The fashion industry is huge, in 2008 consumers in the UK spent £46bn on […]

Five questions with a change-maker: Michele Lisenbury Christensen

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

One of the things I’m realising, through the discomfort of this uncertain place I’m hanging out in at the moment, is that teaching is a big part of how I now serve. And a very big part of what has helped me grow into myself as a teacher in the past year is Teach Now, a […]

The change-maker I’m interviewing today is the woman who is teaching me what true servant leadership looks like, and showing me that real authenticity has survived the bastardisation of it’s name and is alive and well. Jen Louden is a teacher, author, leader, change-maker and friend to many women (and men) all over the world. […]

Five questions with change-maker: Letha Sandison

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

Letha Sandison and I have known each other online for more than four years, and I’ve watched with deep admiration as she has built Wrap Up Africa, which is – as far as I know – the only NGO focused on improving access to treatment for pediatric cancer in Africa. Wrap Up Africa’s mission is […]

Change-maker interview with Danielle LaPorte

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Danielle La Porte. To get an idea of the kind of white hot truth this woman has on tap, check out her latest post, ‘your permission slip from the universe‘. Danielle brings compassion, truth and blazing love to creative entrepreneurship. She’s a feminine powerhouse, a spiritual business advisor, a truth-teller, a mother and a friend. […]

Change-maker interview with Stacey Monk

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Stacey Monk is a woman after my own heart. She understands that we have to work together to bring about a better world, so she pours her energy into supporting people who are making positive changes already. People like Mama Lucy. Stacey is gracious, enthusiastic, savvy and compassionate. I’m a big fan of both Stacey […]
