Chris Pan has already led a full life. When asked about his fascinating journey from a young boy in Taiwan who moved to the US without knowing English, to Harvard Business School, and to working as an early employee of Facebook, he references the game, Zelda. Chris goes on to explain that life is a journey in which you pick up a tool with each chapter you live. Eventually, all the tools support you in the ultimate purpose you are here to live. Chris now joyfully engages in his life purpose. As a result, he uses the tools he found along the way in service to the joyful, powerful work he does in the world.
Chris attended the Hoffman Process in 2013 after a difficult relationship breakup. A friend told him about the Process and that it can provide deep healing, quickly. Wanting to be out of the pain he was in, Chris registered right away. Post-Process, Chris started this new life of spreading joy and healing.
This episode of Love’s Everyday Radius is full of delights. Chris’ engaging life story, his commitment to bringing more joy and play into the world, and his generous singing and guitar playing (you’ll hear him sing two songs), are examples of how the change that happens within each of us as a result of doing the Process can ripple out into the everyday radius of our lives.
What’s Your WORD?
Chris Pan is the founder of MyIntent.org. He has helped millions of people find their intention, including Beyonce, Elon, and Melania. VOMO (VOICE MOVEMENT), Chris’ new project, is making group singing fun, uplifting, and cathartic. His vision is to have the world sing together and live with intent.
The quote Chris refers to:
“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.”―
One of the songs Chris sings comes from a popular song by Prince. Chris changed the title and lyrics to reflect the healing that happens during the Process and in his work.
