Excellence Reporter: Irini, what is the meaning of life?
Irini Rockwell: The profundity of life’s meaning comes about when we bring out our best to serve others. This happens through wisdom and love: only when we can truly love ourselves, can we be available to others offering them unconditional loving kindness and compassion. A magical resonance occurs: we become one.
The Five Wisdoms have been the vehicle to bring together my training in meditation, Buddhism, psychotherapy, leadership, mind/body disciplines, movement, and creative process. I have seen this work transform people’s lives, whether to give them greater awareness of themselves, bring out more emotional intelligence, make a breakthrough in their primary relationship, or see their energy in a work situation.
