110 Opportunities for Growth, Interview with Laura Larriva Page
Laura went from circus arts to human development professional, exploring the full range of what it means to be a human being. She found peak experiences allow us access to a different kind of universal intelligence. During a difficult time, while recovering from an accident, found herself lamenting what she couldn’t do, rather than focusing on self love acts she could do. Laura was reminded every crisis is an opportunity for growth.
Q & A
Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?
I have to give a shout out to one of my primary influences and ongoing mentors Bill Plotkin.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
We have an evolutionary urge to become to become more and more and more of who we are. You follow your longings and your fears – particularly the place of where you’re longing and your fear meet, which will take you right to the edge if you are becoming.
Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.
One of the places I go to refuel is the Bioneers website and their podcasts.
Do you have a favorite quote?
Earth, isn’t this what you want? To arise in us, invisible?
Is it not your dream, to enter us so wholly
there’s nothing left outside us to see?
What, if not transformation,
is your deepest purpose?
What book are you reading right now?
What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?
All of our potentials, all of our very human capacities, I am wanting to evoke potential. I am wanting to stir things up.
