“Greatness is a road toward something that is unknown.”
Charles de Gaulle


I have the deep conviction that seeds of greatness sojourn in every human being.  Just look at how talent and yearnings unfold in the hearts of our children and slowly sprout into the fresh dance of possibilities we call life.

We have all been gifted with potential and the capacity to love, imagine and wonder. Societal pressure and consumerism can steer us into a road of forgetfulness and giving up “Living!” Yet, we are creative creatures by nature.

“HAVING” has displaced “BEING”.

Each of us bears invaluable gifts, which sole purpose is to be enjoyed and shared with the world at the best of our capacity. Our treasures mature with the patient and devoted care of their guardian and the generous and respectful contribution of loved ones, guides, and teachers.

Every path we have taken is a thread in the fabric of existence. When fear detours the hero from the adventure; a treasure vanishes and the whole universe feels the loss.

Teaching For Greatness™  is a space for an archaeological excavation of the soul. It is a place for reflection, contribution, a space to share stories and resources that defy limiting conceptions of reality and move into creating a vision of the Possible – WTHI-IN and FOR – our children and ourselves.

Traces of Greatness seeks to inspire young and old heroes to sketch a life that colors itself in the rhythm of  dreams and builds a bridge between consciousness and our beautiful and imperfect humanity.
