Congruent comes from the Latin verb congruere “to come together” “correspond with.” “in agreement”.
It is also a term used by Carl Rogers (a humanistic psychologist) to describe a state in which a person’s ideal self and actual experience are consistent or very similar. However, it was rare for a complete state of congruence to exist and that all people experience a certain amount of incongruence.
Therefore, it is about constantly aligning and integrating.

Externally, it is the way we speak, carry ourselves and interact with the world around us.
This is about aligning what we thinking, feeling and experiencing and our actions and behaviours.
It is also about leading beyond ourselves and our lives to lead and contribute to the world.
Do the inner work, take care of you so you can use you.
