Podcast 18: Suanne Camfield (The Sound of a Million Dreams)Sep 18, 2017
Today, I talk with Suanne Camfield, author of The Sound of Million Dreams: Awakening to Who You are Becoming. You'll enjoy our engaging conversation on the themes of:
This is the passage from Suanne's book that made me want to talk with her:
"...the stirring was a moment: an awareness of the holy in the midst of the every day that simultaneously brought clarity and chaos to my space in the world. A feeling: of perpetual pressing, pushing, and pulling that happened and continues to happen all at once, a mystery not unlike the way we say the kingdom of God is both now and not yet, both here and yet to come, both with in us and among us, that was compelling me to do something. The vision: pathway for the future who's specifics I couldn't catch sight of but was certain existed nonetheless. And longing: an ache to offer a piece of myself to the world that held within it to the smallest hope of leaving a mark. An invitation: a solicitation to view life through a new lens, a kindling that burned so deeply I'd spend the next 10 years trying to figure it out. A calling. A dream. A gift. There was something I was supposed to do. There was a person I was supposed to become." (bolded emphasis mine)
If you recognize that moment, feeling, vision, longing and invitation, you'll benefit from Suanne's insights. And at the end of the podcast Alan and I talk a bit more about truth with a capital T.
