Keynote: The Wound is Where the Light Enters You

In 2016, at the peak of a career in the fashion industry, I took a leap from a globe-trotting fashion executive to a life dedicated to service and community. It wasn’t a choice. The transformation came from deep within, sparked by what the mystics call a ‘dark night of the soul.’ The keynote will explore how personal transformations take place and the role of identity in discovering purpose.
