The world we live in is a spectrum of infinity. But no matter how vast this modern liquid world would be, everything has a touch of infinity in its composition – everything in the world is expressed and recorded in some form of connection, to the joy of contribution as intriguing as our times.

We all, around the world, are fascinated by the infinite mysteries that surround us — in fact, we’ve created our own stories on top of it – but what is almost unique is that we deal with it on a daily basis. (I say almost because this is something within us all, but only those brave enough to get lost in between the lines of this life can fully comprehend) 

But what’s the truth?

The truth is that everything is born from the state of nothingness; from a state of shunya. Just as Marilyn Atkinson says, “Shunya is a word referring to the supreme state of awareness where everything comes to nothingness just before being created anew.” 

Every being that has come into existence travels and traverses through different stages of human consciousness. Every iota that emerges out of Shunya evolves, multiplies, expands, and merges into consciousness.

Carrying this theme in the year 2021, The Coaching Conclave, hosted the biggest coaching event of the year: The Coaching Conclave 2021 – Journey into Shunya and Expansion across the nation to have heart-to-heart, authentic conversations with individuals who were drawn together to explore what it means to be a human being.

This theme was further divided into three sub-tracks – Expression, Connection, and Contribution. Our mission was to create a space to help masterful coaches, changemakers and leaders explore what it means to live from a space of Shunya and Expansion at the same time on three tracks expression, connection, and contribution.

The 36- hour continuous marathon began with the keynote session by Lakshmi Pratury, followed by a conversation with Nathan Farrugia, Suresh Narayanan- Leadership- From Acorns to Mighty Oaks, and Philippe Rosinski who spoke on 7 ways to be fully present and make a positive difference in the world. Other speakers included Rajesh Ramakrishnan, Jonathan Passmore, Surbhee Singh, Raymond Miranda, Dan Newby, Sylvana Caloni, Lyra Puspa, Steve Foran, Patrick Aylward, Satyanarayanan Kumar, Sri Anish, Saba Hasanie, Shailesh Haribhatkti, Alex Wray, Gina Hayden, Peter Stefayni, Blaine Bartlett, Peggy McAllister, Richard Hyams, Shayamal Vallabhjee, Craig Weber and Robert Clinkenbeard.

Day one saw its uproar when Marilyn Atkinson joined us to share her insights on shunya: the way to handle complexity with power and grace. What struck me the most was when she said, “If something is whole and complete, and we try to put it into something that is not whole and complete, it is no longer whole and complete. Human beings are a mirror of Shunya: The moment we add a “problem” the field of wholeness inside us collapses.”

Day two, welcomed many speakers like Kara Exner, Dorothy Siminovitch, Sackeena Gordon- Jones, Rajeev Dubey, Chalmers Brother, Richard Barrett, Chris Soderquist, Sabrina Park, Anupam Arun, Nand Kishore Chaudhary, Adelle Richards, Phil Kelly, Sriram Natarajan, Joseph O’Connor, Ian Paterson, Vikram Bhatt, Nirupama Subramanian, Kevin Cottam, Dr. Zerrin Baser, Dr. Neha Sangwan, David Clutterbuck, and Alexander Tsiaras. In the end, the closing ceremony was addressed by Gaurav Arora, where he thanked the speakers along with his team.

The event was a resounding success as the digital edition of TCC expanded its scope by roping eminent personalities from global locations. But what was even more joyful was the transformation that TCC was able to create.

In the end, I would just like to conclude with – Love says “I am everything” Wisdom says “I am nothing”, between these two our life flows. We come together to explore what lies between ‘nothing’ and ‘everything’ while celebrating the mystery of being.
