“Stop. Stand Still. Listen.
Because you’re drunk.
And we’re on the edge of the roof.“
New Stories for a New World: Holy Fools Day 2023
An inspiring Holy Fools Day presentation with Gail Larsen and a merry band of Transformational Speakers: Jennifer Ness Schmid (Phoenix), Gayle Colman (Maine), Kathe Crawford (Sarasota) and Robyn Youkilis (Brooklyn). They have upped the ante on envisioning a new story to advance humanity. May you be inspired to meet the call to adventure with a holy YES! and step out of certainty into the possibility of a just and sustainable world in support of all of life.
We started with What If? That opened the field of possibility for the following questions:
- We loved all those we distain?
- The question isn’t money and sufficiency is here in our bodies right now?
- We embraced aging as growing whole, not old?
- Joy was our highest currency?
What is your New Story for the world you want to be part of? We invite you to start living it today!
Gail Larsen, Founder of Transformational Speaking:
My self-proclaimed holiday, Holy Fools Day, is upon us! April 1 is a day to find your voice, speak your truth, and shake things up!
Joseph Campbell said HOLY FOOLS are the most dangerous people on earth because they are willing to break from convention to take an action that is inspired from within and shake up the status quo!
In 2014 I declared April 1 Holy Fools Day and ever since have been encouraging Holy Fools to make a difference in creating a more just and sustainable world in support of all of life. Some think stepping off into the unknown is pure folly. Yet, just as Indiana Jones and the Fool from the Tarot demonstrate, Holy Fools understand that an ocean of energy awaits that calls for trust in what cannot yet be seen. Only there can a new way forward be created!
