The process of self-inquiry or self-appraisal is one of the most powerful tools we have on a journey of refinement, connection and transformation. It’s how we sense and recognize the invisible shape of our inner awareness and consciousness.
Do the true origins and causing forces of the dramatic and powerful struggles we see around the globe really lie in the physical world, where they manifest and shape our communities and cultures? Or is the outer world, even the chaos and destruction, a physical reflection of the perceptions and sense of self that form our deeper collective inner life?
Transformation and co-creation mean more than living only in our heads with great ideas and esoteric knowledge. They require being able to embody and bring to life our inner alignments, feelings, values, and knowing; making the journey from mental concepts and knowledge to a living reality that demonstrates our deepest awareness and understanding. Living a continually unfolding truth.
This is a special Portals of Perception conversation with a diverse group of practitioners and leaders who bring their insights into consciousness, and their skills in creating transformative change, to top executives, teams and communities around the world.

In this interview with Leaning into Light Founder Jessica Rios, Grace shares stories from her own life about the gifts of being available to the Divine — “the ongoing flow and generosity of this universe.” “Rather than living with a terrifying perspective, we begin to pull from a deeper well” and realize that “Light is constantly reaching for us, just as we choose to lean into Light. There is a Light, a gift, that is blessing us all the time.”
