Episode 90 ~ with Naomi Irons and Cathy Saunders
As we move into a time unlike any other, we as women are being beaconed to lead, not in the traditional sense but in a way that allows us to hear and heed the call from deep inside ourselves, calling us to become the leader of our own potential, to reclaim the greatness we carry to shape a very different world, for ourselves and our children.
The Call to Women to Lead
In this series of Radio Shows, The Call to Women to Lead, the conversation began with episode 88 Moving Beyond the Mother Daughter Roles. These roles, for generations have defined who we must become as women and have silently collapsed our deep capacity to lead our own immense potential. As we mindfully free ourselves we can begin to shape our world and not simply be a victim to a world that has for so long been shaped for us.
Episode 89 Boundless LeaderSelf-Moving Beyond Collusion, we began to explore taking back our lives by unbinding ourSelves from the collusion that as women keeps us small to ourselves and in the presence of other women. From here we can begin to hear the call back to the immensity and intensity that lies below the surface beaconing us to become the One’s in our own life to emerge as our Boundless LeaderSelf…and become the call to others to consider themselves differently!
Today’s show Creating Communities – Choosing Beyond Being the Caretaker of Relationships has us redefining ourselves beyond being responsible for the internal states of others and instead of seeing ourselves or other women as small, powerless or victims to our/their circumstances, we discover the greatest care we can give to ourselves and another, is our willingness to call to our own greatness and hold others as powerful even when they cannot see it for themselves! This very act begins to create intentional communities that thrive on who we have the potential to become as POWERFUL BEINGS!
Host: Naomi Irons – WSI Affiliate and Registered CODE Model Coach™
Naomi is passionate about discovering the depths of her own boundless vision through the WEL-Systems® Body of Knowledge, as well as engaging with Others who hunger to know themselves well beyond the surface of who and what they have been taught to believe themselves to be. Her enthusiasm lies in moving beyond the search, to discovering our inate willingness and ability to find within, that we as women are already whole and hold the organic potential, to birth very different worlds, that are as unique as we are.
In her own words: ”Every breath we take we are either being defined by our past (small, powerless, resourceless) or we are redefining ourselves in alignment with who we have the potential to become (immense, powerful and resourceful). It is a choice that shapes our Life.”
In conversation with:
Cathy Saunders – WSI Affiliate and Registered CODE Model Coach™
Cathy has a deep desire to support leaders to lead in ways that create vibrant, meaningful, abundant and sustainable systems. Cathy believes that we are each here to fully express our unique note in the symphony of life and, that it is NO longer enough to lament in our discoveries, rather, It IS TIME, to create a different world.
Cathy seeks to engage with leaders who choose to create “C”ommunities that evoke, invite and allow, healthy, whole, powerful systems. Systems (individuals, groups, teams, organizations, communities) that fully come to the “table of life” from a deep sense of clarity, purpose, resourcefulness and congruency so that we can get on with creating a different world—one that is life giving and life affirming!

Louise LeBrun says
Naomi and Cathy: My thanks to you both for opening the door to a very different WAY to consider and engage this exploration of ‘community’ – whatever form it may take (i.e. family, work, friends, etc.). Your shared ability to hear and see beyond the limitations of what has been offered up by the past and carve out new territory of thought, makes possible that which has always existed on the fringes but eliminated from the ‘practical’ or the ‘reasonable’: genuine, authentic and life-sustaing ways to come together without losing our unique selves.

Thank you Naomi and Cathy, for this authentic exploration of Creating Intentional Communities -Choosing Beyond the Caretaker role. WOW!
The elegance, clarity and wisdom you both offer as you shared your perspectives on how the Caregiver role has shaped reality – allowed me to consider it in a very expansive way for myself – I know all to well how the strategy of caregiver has shaped my past.
Yes – choosing to offer respect, integrity, and generosity of spirit for myself first has transformed who I choose to do with and for others. There are days I am still relaxing into me first.
I now can see the distinct moments when I choose to do with and for others that comes from a place of great meaning – and when I have chosen in the past to do and with others from a place of obligation.
I believe this conversation speaks to the intimacy and interconnectivity we/ I authentically seek, in the creation of communities that enhance and bring life.
Thank you. For your willingness and candour. Nancy
Awesome! So simply put. This conversation birthed more clarity inside of me. YES to the power of living, organic collectives in re-shaping what was to create infinite space for full, authentic expression and a very different world.
