Di HallMY PASSION
Community. The power of it. The wisdom in it. The strength it can create.
In both my personal and professional life, the value of community has been a source of profound inspiration. Over and over again, I find myself in awe of the tremendous power of community. While working as an executive in high-growth technology companies I witnessed first hand the extraordinary things people can achieve, for themselves personally and for a larger whole with the encouragement, strength, hope and shared wisdom of a committed group of people. And personally, I have watched my own life transform through conversations with others. I now have a deeper capacity for sustained connection with others and a greater emotional awareness and intellectual understanding of myself. Out of my experiences I have discovered my passion for creating communities where people can connect and discover their true selves, develop their talents and be appreciated for their contributions.
From a young age I have been what some may call an ‘over-achiever”, accomplishing goals I set for myself scholastically, athletically and in almost every domain of my life. While these achievements were adrenalin-producing and externally applauded, they were internally exhausting and unfulfilling. By the time I was 36 and facing divorce I was compelled to take on the internal examination of who I was and who I wanted to be-- in all aspects of my life. I embarked on a 5 year journey of personal discovery, and emerged with a renewed sense of purpose. I am grateful for the journey I call my life. I’m passionate and inspired by people’s stories, seeing the possibilities that lie ahead for them and being a guide and companion on their journeys.
