Ayelet Baron, Author & Global Futurist

Hi, I’m Ayelet Baron. In the midst of a very successful career as a global strategy executive at Cisco Systems, I went through my own transformation.

After several life-altering experiences, I realized that the old paradigm no longer worked for me. I made the bold decision to fire myself and started to question everything.

Along this trek into the unknown, the universe and I wrote the F❤️ck the Bucket List book trilogy because we decided that had we partnered up sooner, my journey towards becoming a conscious architect of humanity would have been much easier…

My dream is that the triplets, as I call them, help unleash millions and millions of heart-centered people who are ready to do their own inner work and ultimately join us in the HeartPickings community as we work together as architects of humanity.

Wondering how I ended up here? Let me tell you a little story…

A Journey Into the Unknown

The Universe Speaks

In 2020, when the global pandemic unleashed on the world, I felt something unexpected — gratitude. I believe there are no accidents, and if I hadn’t extricated myself from the toxic partnership I was in, I’d have found myself trying to run a conscious leadership academy in a remote location that nobody could travel to.

Did the universe conspire to help me practice my ability to adapt to change?

Maybe it did.

A healthy tree will always find a way to birth new fruit despite the hardships it faces, so why can’t we?

Living in the midst of nature entirely changed my life and provided an opportunity for me to learn from her pure fierceness and beauty. I learned to connect with the heartbeat of the earth and listen to the deep whispers of my heart. I learned we are not separate from nature.

But make no mistake — by no means has it been easy.

I had to unlearn so much that had been stuffed inside me by those who had walked their own paths before me and felt they knew what was best for me.

I learned to ask questions and get to the source of everything because no one had my answers.

I learned that when we travel along our path, we can become increasingly aware that there’s no destination in life—just life itself.

Finding our Path Through Healing

Strength comes from facing our challenges and moving away from the norm by transforming them into our greatest opportunities. When we can look at a challenge and examine its root cause, we take a step toward self-awareness and mastery.

Through my own journey, I came to realize that the real reason I came to this coastal town was not to build something with other people but to connect with nature, become health-conscious, and let these three books flow out into the world.

My passion and goals now are focused on helping others awaken to the voice deep within so they can understand that when we come together in unity, not conformity or uniformity, our collective journey on this planet will also transform.

I draw inspiration from futurist Buckminster Fuller, who reminds us that “We are called to be the architects of the future, not its victims.”
Integrating humanities, behavioral science, and evolutionary strategy, I envision a world where people matter and conscious business plays a greater role in societal value.

As a designer and strategist dedicated to the evolution of the next generation of conscious leaders, I gratefully share my knowledge, experiences, and relationships to those who are ready to trek into the unknown through my writing, guided sessions and custom project work.

 

Let Me and the Universe Be Your Guide

Fast forward… I sold the property and have embarked on the next leg of my journey as a digital nomad. As I gain my sea legs I will spend my time assisting people around the world in their transition to a healthy life. I’m passionate about driving sustainable change and being of service to the next generation of healthy creators.

Step Into Your Role as a Powerful Co-Creator with HeartPickings

I know that having a supportive community of co-creators can make all the difference.

What I hear from people who are seeking a new path is that they feel disconnected and a deep sense of loneliness, the truth is that you are never alone unless you choose to be.

Ayelet Baron

I am co-creating HeartPickings for the rebels, the creators, the visionaries, the troublemakers, the odd ones and most of all for anyone who is here to create a healthy life and world with systems that serve people and the planet. HeartPickings is a true community where a new way of being in both personal and professional relationships is forming and growing.

HeartPickings will offer an opportunity to create new ways of working in community; developed through experimentation by supporting each other and helping each other grow and develop. We are truly trekking into the unknown together, trusting our hearts and universal guidance.

Let’s take this journey together.
