Today three people asked me for the information about the class on Change the Story of Law, so it must be time to think about that again. Here is the link.
We've applied for CLE in North Carolina, NC is one of those states where MCLE credit is hard to get, so if they say yes, your bar will almost certainly agree. Even if they don't, we can provide you with the information to get MCLE where you are.
October in the North Carolina Mountains + CLE + Really interesting conversation with really interesting people = What could be better? Come join us. We have a lot to talk about.
I'm off to New Mexico in the morning, then to Tallahassee on Monday. After North Carolina, I will be going around the world again. This is what stationary looks like for me. Love, Kim
The summer is moving right along and my to-do list is getting longer. How does that happen? The more I work, the more there seems to be to do.
As I wrote in my previous posts, life is about to change in a big way for me. Within the next few months, I will be settling in one place, no longer being a nomad, but still traveling. Instead of 12 months of travel each year, constantly moving from place to place, I estimate that I will travel for closer to six months of each year. That is still a lot of travel, but between trips, I will be returning to a particular place, with my stuff on the walls, and an office set up to my preferences, and a big bathtub for soaking out the kinks of sitting in airplane seats for hours at a time.
Many of us went to law school to change the world, to create world peace, to make a difference. We may not always have careers that do that and we may not share our passions in public - after all, we don't want to appear undignified, idealistic or grandiose. In private conversations, hundreds of lawyers have shared their secret hopes and dreams with me and I have seen many of them fulfill on those early dreams. I've seen the real bigness of lawyers, the power to be evolutionaries and world changers.
I promised an update soon and I'm tardy. Here is the rest of the European trip! I'm joined in this update by my assistant, Ayni. We're reporting in more detail than usual, since people often ask what I do.
A global summit that blends spirituality with societal transformation
As lawyers, we are often at the forefront of societal challenges – or perhaps we wish we could be. Many of us wonder how to be most effective in our efforts. As integrative lawyers, we long for more compassion, consciousness, and love in our interactions.
The Report from the NetherlandsA compilation by Ayni Smith and Kim Wright Published from Paris. Reports about Belgium and Paris will follow shortly. We're busy living those stories.
Are you living in interesting times? A lot of people have been telling me stories of challenges and missed opportunities that looked like sure things. I’ve been having such times, too. My car broke down on the cross-country trip, a major breakdown, my Swedish host became very ill and we’ve had to revisit my European travel itinerary, I had the flu, a very bad case that seemed to never end, and a few other unexpected challenges have arisen lately.
May you live in only the best of interesting times.
I am in the homestretch on the book-writing project! The deadline is tomorrow and I have only four chapters left to write. Time to really focus! (That training as a litigator comes in handy at times.)
For those I haven't already greeted this year: Happy New Year! (At what point do we stop saying that? Is it the middle of January? The end?)
As you might imagine, I'm busy with a lot of activities for 2015. You're not going to read much about those, yet. Mainly, I'm working on my book. (Tentative title) Integrative Law will be published by the American Bar Association later this year. Before that, I need to write it.
