In this introductory episode of Sisu Lab, I briefly describe the Finnish construct sisu and invite you to take a walk with me to its higher expression as graceful strength that allows you to endure, excel, and even elevate through tough times. At the end I read a short excerpt from my upcoming book.
Thanks for listening and stay tuned for a ride into the formidable fibres of human fortitude!

Sisu is a reserve of inner strength but it is also a way for us to know ourselves and impact the world in a positive way. Cultivating these reserves of inner strength starts with self-care and continues through self-inquiry. its power then extends to the world through our inspired acts of deep courage and compassion.
