How are you today?
And yes, I mean today. Right now. Because I know how evanescent our inner workings have felt as of late.
I know because the work we do in coaching is always shifting. Just like the rhythm of our lives, each session ebbs and flows with whatever may be uniquely unfolding before us, and within us.
Right now I hear my clients traversing an unknown landscape with layers of new challenges, courtesy of all things Covid-19, on top of their regularly scheduled journeys towards a life of fulfillment. Whether it’s navigating job loss, parenting with great freedom limitations, or fresh, quarantine-induced relationship tensions, we are all hitting a wall in one way or another.
(ahem, no, it’s not just you!)...
I am finding it is as important as ever to continue striving to live in alignment with our values, even if the choices we make to honor them feel small and a tad socially-distanced caged. I get the sense we are all having to dig deep into our reserve wells of patience, trust, vulnerability. The work to keep these flowing has been no joke, to say the least. I am finding we each need safe, sacred space to work through all the ways we can stay afloat, let alone continue swimming onward.
Coaching is a safe space for your whole being. Our calls are designed to be an opening for you to ask all of the heavy, literal and existential questions; Questions we don’t feel we are allowed to ask, because of privilege or blessings or good health, like “why now? why me?”, “what next?”, “how on earth do I survive, let alone thrive, in this mess?”...
These conversations do not solely have to be about discovering the answers to such questions (though brainstorming, movement and accountability practices are always fun to throw in the mix). Much of our time together is about the process of releasing them - fully acknowledging their presence, saying them outloud, to free our hearts and minds from their burdens.
Holding space for the full spectrum of your humanity is a great honor of my life and work.
From now through the month of August, I am holding “safe space” sessions for $50, with $25 from each session being donated to one of the following organizations (your choice!) as an effort to live more in alignment with my own values:
The Loveland Foundation
