Ariel and Shya Kane spent many years and all their savings working hard on themselves to bring about positive change. Exhausted by it all they discovered that “working on themselves doesn’t work.” They have found that transformation can happen in the instant. Shya Kane tells us, “transformation happens when you notice how you're being without judging yourself and it's over. It happens in an instant, outside of time. Transformation happens exponentially in all areas of your life, not just in those areas you think you want to change.” With their unique view from personal experience the Kanes’ wisdom is surprisingly simple, but not easy. They give us tools to move beyond our habits of trying to create a better future by repeating the past. The four principles that are key to their philosophy are: 1) Listening 2) Anything you resists persists 3) in the current moment you can only be exactly how you are 4) Anything you allow to be exactly as it is, without judging, it will complete itself. For the most part we think that change is incremental and it happens in a step-by-step linear way, it happens over time. But what about transformation? (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
