First and most importantly, thank you for being here. Thank you for spending your precious time with me. I appreciate you stopping by. And — I want you to like me.
I love people. A lot. I love communication and connection, especially when it’s honest, deep, intimate and playful. Risks. Rawness. Relationships. Revolutions. All those words start with the letter R. They’re also what I’m into. And, yes, I think I’m funny.
My personality is extroverted, positive and enthusiastic. I’m a yes to life. I have a deep soul call to be of service. I care about humanity, our world and about finding ways to cultivate change and support others in aligning their greatest gifts and longings with their impact in their life, work, communities and spheres of influence.
My soul seeks communion and transformation and is cleanly anchored in a mission to alleviate suffering. Mine. Yours. I feel a moral obligation to use my privilege in service of a more healthy and just world. We’re in such strange times. It seems so much is simultaneously crumbling while new worlds of potential are emerging. In the same moment as I feel resilient and wise, I am also naive and only beginning to wake up. My earnest hope is that I do right by this sweet and sick world, bring what I’ve got and remain soft, open and curious.
My name, Chela, is Sanskrit for disciple. It’s Spanish for Beer. The contrast is fitting.
