We each have multiple voices within us, tied to our multiple personas. We each are: a friend; a partner; a parent; an income earner; A hobbyist; A doer and a creator. But are we in touch with each and every persona equally? Are we authentically connected to each dimension of our personality; In order to express our multiple voices freely, authentically, everyday? Do we each express our creativity fully everyday?

They have developed solutions to assist aspiring professionals in becoming more fully connected in every area of their life, right now. Instisap.com offers a coaching and mentoring program, guiding aspiring professionals on their personal journey to self-awareness, to more effectively – authentically – connect to their multiple personas, and voices.
The Vision for INSTISAP
At the heart of this ecological perspective is acceptance that the Subjective individual – you – sits within an environment, culture, a society, a community, a family, a network. The point of self-awareness is not for you to become isolated and live on a proverbial island – it is to develop and grow as you are designed to be and do within the extraordinarily complex embodied vessel that we have all been granted in life – the human body.
The body is an amazingly complex resource which science has evidenced we understand such a small percentage of. More alarmingly, science also evidences how little the average person exercises their personal agency of their known capabilities. Our hope is to inspire greater exercising of one’s faculties and development of one’s overall personal agency. My belief is that, with an improved focus of self, we as a human race can develop a global citizen of greater integrity and be more collaborative and collegial in order to develop an exponentially greater standard of living for all of the globe’s inhabitants. I believe a more authentic standard of living requires us to channel and acknowledge input from a wider range of cultures than we do today, and as a result, we will be better positioned to realise a more sustainable existence on Planet Earth.
