Here are a few of our favorite Big Ideas + Other Cool Stuff from Week 3 of Rosie Kuhn's 6-week course What's Really Happening When Life Gets Scary:6 Invisible Elements of Life with Uncertainty with Dr. Rosie Kuhn.
Dr. Rosie Kuhn is the founder of the Paradigm Shifts Coaching Group, a preeminent thought leader in the field of transformational coaching, and a coach training and leadership development expert. She is the author of Self-Empowerment 101, and The Unholy Path of a Reluctant Adventurer, and also the creator and facilitator of the Transformational Coaching Training Program.
This course is for those who realize that they can no longer avoid, distract or deny their current reality and want to self-empower themselves to actualize the life they have dreamed of, regardless of what uncertainties prevail. It requires moving beyond hope, beyond trust and to some degree, even faith; grounding oneself in the knowing that they talk about but have yet to fully experience.
Dr. Kuhn will provide skills and tools to support the facilitating process of a very personal journeying through a time of uncertainty.
Here are a few of our favorite Big Ideas from Week 3- Lessons, Strengthening and Stretching:
Big Idea #1: Sitting In The Fear!
Dr. Kuhn suggests we become comfortable with fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. As we become comfortable; our resiliency increases! Comfort means accepting the present reality and not making it better or worse, just what is. Too often we are in the past or the future which can make us depressed or overwhelmed.
Step into the present moment and expand!
Big Idea #2: Power In 2012
To help us feel into our knowing, Dr. Kuhn, shares some insight by Lee Harris:
"Sometimes being in fear or anxiety is the perfect place to be in order to release it. But often the hysteria that moves through a group gets tried on by an individual. We are influenced by each other. How could we not be? So be very clear in yourself this coming year as to what you feel your truth is around life, the planet, your reason or not to be here. "
"..The moment is the place we can trust, the place we can be. The past is often the place from where we reference, trying to see ahead with the eyes of the past so as not to repeat what we perceive as mistakes, so as to create something different from that which we created before. So our future visions and intentions are often tied into the past."

Big Idea #3: Doing Nothing
Many of us are addicted to doing and afraid of being. Dr. Kuhn suggest we lean into doing nothing(meditation is a doing activity), so we can live more in the domain of humanity. Living in the domain of humanity allows us to be present and authentic in life! Here are some "nothing" suggestions and ideas:
Learn to Love What is
Notice the desire to do something while it appears that you are doing nothing
Be with the angst and fears of just being
Be with the anger and frustrations – the interpretations of what you think it means to do nothing
Other Cool Stuff:
Know you are loved and valued for being, not for doing.
