Be a Vavnik, harnessing your transformational power of connection, creating change for the good of all

Between stimulus and response there is a space

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Victor E. Frankl – Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor .


AND is the pause, like taking a deep breath to expand the moment, to acknowledge that we are more than what we are alone.
The pause is like nature shedding her leaves between summer and winter, a moment in between, a transitional space where anything can happen, and it does, surprising us each year.


AND as a Vavnik, committed to the interconnectedness of life, is our belief that as brilliant as we are we know nothing. And we await the Universe to bless us, as my friend Ryan told me this morning, to just drop in.


The pause, the And, is an act of self Love, of kindness and forgiveness for the moment before not being perfect and needing help, building our trust in the WE.
