This Human Being

A global community of perfectly imperfect people, co-exploring what lies beyond mastery, while enjoying being human together.

Why This Human Being?

We are grappling with extraordinarily complex challenges across the globe. 

Many are working in service to meeting these challenges. Yet efforts seem to result in ever more of the separation, fighting and polarization that we say we don't want.

Coaches and other human development professionals are uniquely positioned to help change this. Join this community and learn another way to navigate. 

A New Approach:
The Journey Beyond Mastery

If you are to guide others to find better ways, you must start by taking the journey beyond mastery.  

This is no small invitation. It is not for everyone. It is fierce work to build such robust connections: with yourself, with others and with the sources of guidance that are always all around us.

People are often reluctant to do this, because it is much easier to blame others for what is wrong.

Begin to allow a deeper exploration, and expand your capacity to work with separation, polarization and fighting when you see your clients falling into the same pattern.

How Does it Work?

This community engages in a powerful collective inquiry as we journey beyond mastery together.

Each month we take on a question, an invitation or a new practice and experiment with it in our own life and our own work. We also conduct a focused monthly energy experiment.

We come together virtually to share what we are learning, and occasionally we  gather in person for Deeper Conversations Retreats.

This is a co-exploration, rather than a training program. Watch the video below where Shahmeen Sadiq, Founder of Anjali Leadership and Convenor of this community, shares more about what led to This Human Being.

Who is this for?

This community is for people who have already achieved some level of "mastery" in their professional and personal lives, and are ready to explore what lies beyond the creating, doing and driving that all good achievers excel at.

It is especially useful for people who work in service to innovation, sustainability, effective leadership. It is for those who care about what kind of future our children, grandchildren and their descendants will have.

Coaches who are moving into later stages of adult development, Human Development Professionals who want to evoke transformation through a deeper conversation, Leaders who know another way is desperately needed, Advocates and Activists who work in service to causes that affect us all. This community is for you.

 

Signals that you are ready for The Journey Beyond Mastery:

"You feel alone (not lonely), like you're the "only one" who sees things in a certain way."


"The people you've long lived and worked with don't seem to understand what you mean when you speak. "


"You notice an inner sense that something is missing, even though you've felt satisfied and had much professional success."


"Words, insights and responses come "through" you that are surprising, because you've not said or thought that before."


"Conversations with friends, family or colleagues are not as rich or satisfying anymore, almost like you're not on the same plane now."


"You are losing patience for shallow, surface level conversations. "


"You are less unwilling to venture into difficult, rocky topics of conversation."


"The books and other media you are drawn to must be more "filling"."


"When you cease the flurry of activity and are more present with yourself, you are more open to guidance and wisdom."


"You are craving more quiet time alone or more reflective and restorative time."


"You experience moments of deep connection with yourself and others, that fill you more than your favourite food."


"Small, everyday things or comments can move you to tears."


"You notice an inner longing, a yearning for something that you can't quite identify."


"You have peak experiences or "unitive moments" that fill your heart until it feels like it can no longer be contained in your body."


I'm Shahmeen Sadiq, Founder of Anjali Leadership and Convenor of This Human Being Community. I've been a coach, guide and mentor to hundreds of leaders, executive coaches, leadership development professionals and young people over the past 15 years. I'm delighted to invite you to join us in This Human Being. Below is the dream that led to the creation of this community. 

I turn the corner and am stopped short by the joyous scene. Hundreds of people have gathered in a large open space. They are smiling, totally present as they engage each other with genuine interest. The room shimmers with diversity of age, identity, nationality, race, religion, politics, beliefs and thought, yet it resonates with respect, care and regard for what is common: our shared humanity. The energy is joyful, yet grounded; some are even dancing! Although I have convened this gathering, there are guides and teachers who are here too; we are holding the space in partnership all together.
