So it’s time everyone! Drum roll please…
Jen Lemen and I would like to announce our first online class–an online experience really–called Mondo Beyondo. For those of you who have been keeping up with our blogs, you might already know what Mondo Beyondo is… but we will take it from the top anyway.
This is how it began:
The idea of the Mondo Beyondo list was introduced to me about ten years ago. My friend Adrienne told me that she and her husband had made a list of goals for the year (which was their tradition) but this time they added the whopper: a Mondo Beyondo list. In that moment it was like a neon sign flashing in my brain, I somehow knew what she meant even before I asked. “This is the list of totally outrageous things you would love to have happen in your life. You know, like meeting Bruce Springsteen or buying a house in the Mediterranean.”
I had been making these kinds of lists for years but had never had a name for it, or ever formalized my mental list by writing it down. My Mondo Beyondo. I liked the sound of it. I also loved the idea of stretching yourself into this world of the outrageous. If your imagination could reach a bit farther with this exercise, then you were giving yourself a powerful gift: expanding your idea of what is possible.
Working for SARK had been a Mondo Beyondo dream for me. She was the first person I had ever written fan mail to (or maybe the second? I sent a letter to Ralph Maccio back in 1982) and she was a fundamental part of my journey as a creative entrepreneur. After I got a job with her, I shared the news with an old boyfriend from New Orleans.
“Isn’t it amazing?” I gushed.
“You told me you were going to work for her one day,” he said, unfazed.
I did? I had no memory of this.
“You showed me her book, pointed to her photo and said, ‘I’m going to work for her one day. She’ll be my mentor’.”
Jen Lemen and I are passionate about manifesting. Geeky about it really. It is not only one of our personal superpowers but something we are passionate about sharing. As almost daily phone friends, we have had countless conversations about dreams and how they unfold. We started taking notes on our conversations and then began to map out the elements. What does it actually take to make our dreams come true? Is it about thinking the right thoughts? Is it about serendipity and magic? Is it about action and efforting our way there? Does it have to be about struggle?
In sharing our stories with each other, we noticed that there were key elements in our journeys. It seems that there are ways to actually create better conditions for dreams to grow, ways to clear the channels so that we can be more open to receive. Over time we realized there was so much in these conversations worth sharing, and the the Mondo Beyondo class was born. Will you join us?
