Watch a brilliant conversation with Maureen and Zelle, Co-Creators of the Blueprint of We, on the U.K. podcast, Being Human. Exemplifying resilience and deep connection in their partnership, they offer a powerful model for couples facing the chaos of life and love.

Observe the dynamic between Collaborative Awareness Co-Founders, Maureen McCarthy and Zelle Nelson, you will see a profound embodiment of resilience and deep connection. Facing the challenge of Maureen's rare, fatal lung disease, their partnership transforms into an extraordinary testament to the power of Collaborative Awareness: the discovery and design of who we are together.

The adversity brought on by Maureen's illness could easily overshadow their relationship, but instead, it underscores the essence of What Does This Make Possible?—using this life-altering circumstance to deepen their bond, explore new dimensions of communication, and foster a shared vision that extends beyond personal adversity. Their partnership, both personal and professional, serves as a vibrant canvas displaying how adversity can be transformed into a catalyst for growth and deeper understanding.
