Be who you is,

Not who you ain’t.

’cause if you ain’t who you is,

Then you is who you ain’t.

The Heartstorming Philosophy from ian summers on Vimeo.

Ian Summers was an accomplished, high achieving executive in the advertising and publishing worlds. From the outside looking in, Ian appeared to be an enviable success, but on the inside, he had a yearning to be something else, something more. That yearning, coupled with his inability to figure out what to do about it, kept him feeling empty for many years. In 1976, a childhood hero, Isaac Asimov, asked Ian two life-changing questions:


Who are you?

Why do you exist?

.

Ian struggled to articulate answers to these questions so he responded by reciting the impressive entries in his ever-so-very self-important resumé. Not so impressed, Asimov replied, “I am not interested to what you have done. I want to know what you stand for and how the world will be a different place as the result of your visit on this planet. You are a human doing! Come back when you have become a human being.”

.

Motivated by Asimov’s challenge, Ian spent the next eight years searching for his personal answers to these questions, ultimately transforming himself from a human doing, to a human being. Following a journey that took him away from his conventional advertising and publishing career, and which led him in many unexpected directions (while passing through and over and around a lot of impediments), Ian discovered what he loved, what he felt passionate about and how to live a life enveloped by both. He learned how to work through the fears, obstacles, and barriers that commonly prevent accomplished, intelligent, risk averse people from making major life transitions away from that they perceive as the safe and secure lives they know, to lives fully engaged in what they love and feel passionate about.

.

Ian’s personal journey led him to become a painter, poet, investigative journalist, think tank operator, and publisher to name a few of his passionate pursuits, but most importantly, it led Ian into a world of true fulfillment and meaning. Indeed, through his own redirection process, Ian found himself confidently able to answer Asimov’s two questions. He also discovered how to impart  the redirection wisdom he had gained to others who are faced with familiar feelings of yearning for something different and more, coupled with an emptiness and dissatisfaction that is often viewed as inescapable.

.

Ian travels the country teaching others how they can make the transition from doing to being. His Redirection Workshops and personal consulting teach participants how they can overcome the fears which prevent them from living lives full of what they love and feel passionate about, how to manage perceived risks of change, and how to actively create lives of being, rather than lives of doing. The thousands who have experienced Ian’s Redirection Workshops,  leave the process empowered to answer both of Asimov’s questions, ready to make much desired changes in their lives, whether in their careers or personal pursuits.

This highly interactive Heartstorming Redirection Workshop

will teach you how to transition from human doing to human being.

.

The important thing is this:

that we should be able at any moment

to sacrifice what we are

for what we could become.

Charles du Bos

.

Whether you seek redirection in your career, your personal life, or both, Ian teaches you how to create the life you want and crave by helping you identify what you love and what matters most to you. He guides you to develop and implement a plan that involves skillful navigation around the fears, barriers and obstacles that prevent most people who think about doing so, from actually acting to redirect their lives, enjoying what they truly love and crave.

.

In short, through the Heartstorming process, Ian will help you learn to tell the story of your life from birth to the present. And then he will show you how to create the rest of your story, looking back from the future.

.

What’s Your Story?

.

Storytelling is the most primal form of communication from early humans seated around a fire – before language was created – to pictograms on cave walls – to ancient troubadours, to unwritten memorized tales passed from generation to generation, to Gutenberg, to mass market books, to e-books, to social media, to…

.

Ian Summers co-creates a world where people are safe

to manifest their passions by being

a compassionate teacher and expressive painter.

.

In a compassionate, safe and nurturing environment, Heartstorming will teach you how your passions will help you become who you really are: to be who you is. Your passions are your heart’s desires. They enable you to become the expressive painter who paints his or her own life canvas from the heart.

.

This workshop is for those who wish to co-create a world of passions that will make life’s transitions easier. You will overcome the fear of change and the fear of actions that are necessary to effectuate change, particularly that which you desperately want. You will broaden your lifestyle. And you will learn to naturally follow the Heartstorming steps to redirect your energy and talent towards personal and career growth or change

.

Because you love many things, you will learn the steps necessary to bring your most important passions into being.

.

Many of us were misguided in childhood to make a single choice of what we will do for the rest our lives. We were told that we must be this OR we must be that and we must be dedicated and loyal to that choice in order to be “successful.” Heartstorming Redirection will show you ways to be this AND that AND that AND…

.

The Heartstorming Redirection process involves many steps that will introduce you to new ways to be more creative, to create a new way of living your life personally and professionally. Gone will be the days where you “robotically” feel like you are living your life on autopilot. As Ian did, you will quickly discover an enormous paradigm shift. You will no longer feel anonymous in the world, People will smile at you on the street. People will be attracted to your new energy. Through the creative pursuit of your own passions, you will help others become who they are and teach them how to make a difference in the world. You will make the transition from a human doing to a human being.

.

Our lives are our greatest creations.

.

Creating is causing what you love or what matters to come into being. It is the opposite of problem solving. When we create, we work inside out. You will learn where creative energy comes from and how to summon it at will.

.

Redirection will help participants who are successful in one field to migrate to another, be successful, and express their passions in many ways.

.

Redirection is contagious. You will help others change the actions they take to see their present careers and other life pursuits in more passionate ways.

.


All Growth demands change.

Change requires risk.

And risk entails a temporary surrender of security.

.

Sorry folks. Risk is part of the process.  Heartstorming Career Redirection will show you how to minimize risk. It will help you manage change and it will help you make a safe landing.

 

You will leave this workshop with a plan.

.

You will stir the soup of dreams to see what bubbles to the top. You will identify your passions carefully. You will discover your heart’s desires, see what passions are not being realized, and develop a hierarchy of what you want and how much you want it. We will create a plan based upon alternatives that are unique to you. And we will redirect passions that will motivate you to do what you love in an intensive workshop environment. You will learn how to produce an infinite amount of creative energy that will propel you to a new way of life.


Heartstorming Career Redirection Workshops

are Not Over When They are over.


Most workshops leave participants highly motivated. Participants tell their friends. A week later, their intentions are broken by reacting to outside demands. A few weeks later, the workshop is a distant memory.

.

Heartstorming is different. You will have the on-going support of your fellow navigators and access to Ian. In other words, the workshop is not over when it is over. Each participant has the opportunity to join follow-up teleconference groups where you may discuss your redirection process. There are stretches to help you step into your creations. The group will hold you accountable in constructive ways.
