The World Domination Summit: Fertile ground to get out of your own way and create

I am still processing all that was the World Domination Summit, a gathering of writers, creative and world changers over a warm summer weekend in Portland, Oregon. There are brilliant recaps of the speakers and events here and here. But what happened outside of the scheduled events were just as powerful for me.

After an inspiring talk by Darren Rowse, I slipped out of the theater and into the warmth of the July Portland sun. I felt stripped and raw, open to observing all around me. As I sat and watch my friend try acro yoga, which was providing relief to her chronic back pain, I met Benedict. Then I made this short video.

What would happen if we got out of our own way, if the voices of self doubt and criticism vanished and we slipped into a creative flow?

  1. “I believe I can fly” comes to mind.

    It’s a reminder that we don’t need to dominate the world, just ourselves.

    Great question and reflection.
