Tales of Transcendence

Hug the Universe

Now that coronavirus is urging to social distancing, go to the nearest forest or park and hug a tree. If you are still, breath and concentrate, you can sense the lifeflow, presence and awareness of that particular tree.

If you listen more carefully, you hear all the trees in that forest, all living beings and the whole Universe. Everything breathes. Including the coronavirus, it is only trying to survive as we all are.

And there’s no reason to stop hugging trees, when corona situation is settled. Just keep hugging everything.

Coaching Corner:  (reflect alone): How do you connect to yourself, other human beings, and your environment?   => (start dialogue) If you hug a tree, which question would you like to present to it?

By Pekka Pirhonen

I do human-centric strategic development involving individuals, teams and organizations. At all levels it’s about creating and directing energy, inner transformation, and synchronization of individual and collective awareness. A shift in being initiates a shift in action.

In my blog "Coaching Corner" at I speak mainly about individual transformation and self-leadership. However, my personal experience tells that there is no separate “me” - I happen in relationships with others and with nature. Therefore my main motto regarding transformative self-leadership says “lead yourself towards others and all living beings”.

And once you’ve established contact, open your heart and mind, listen carefully and engage in powerful dialogue. This will transform you, and the whole world. Be the transformation you want to see in the world.

I am a professional self-leadership coach with ICF PCC-certificate, with a lot of experience in virtual coaching. Interested in all kinds of virtual collaboration, coaching assignments and mutual learning.
