The beautiful sunshine today reminds me how a humble adoration of the light and insight of the Self can illuminate our lives and the lives of people around us. The sunshine is always there, even when it is cloudy. The spirituality that I can share with you is a way of living that emphasises a constant awareness of the spiritual dimension of the Self and all of nature.
Life Coaching relationships provide many people with the help and insight to solve life's challenges instilling in you a fearless resolve that is so often required. However, beyond life-changes, career changes and problem solving, spiritually grounded life coaching can create a pastoral forum for exploring spirituality and feeling better about being yourself. My spiritual coaching work can be as spiritually deep as you would like!
Many people who contact me to create a life coaching relationship express an interest in using our time together to develop spiritual aspects of their lives; For a few, this is the only reason for us to work together; and for many, our quality time together opens doors to invigorated ways of looking at themselves, relationships and the world in a spiritual context. If you have been receiving informative feelings from within urging you to get more in touch with yourself, to get real, then read on…
My spiritual companionship work does not have a religious basis. I have observed that religions tend to discourage asking questions in favour of giving answers and that religious dogma so often neglects our Spirit. In today's complex world, many people are beginning to examine their religious beliefs in light of their longing for a more meaningful sense of themSelves. What I have to share with you comes from a lifetime of studying many mystical wisdom traditions, especially as taught by the Buddha, Yoga, Tantra, the diamond approach and Advaita.
If clients are interested I am able to inject a spiritual foundation into our coaching work. Maybe in the form of a meditation practice or perhaps as the primary reason for working together or as a foundation for more practical life-coaching goals like changing career, ending loneliness or finding happiness.
What do I mean by Spirituality?
A sense of meaning and purpose, a sense of self and 'that which is greater than self', including practices such as meditation, presence and connection which support such identity and relationship. Religion represents only a minor subset of the overall themes of spirituality and spiritual practices, and may in some cases hinder rather than assist in spiritual development. I am happy to work with people of any religious inclination. Often our work has a progression to it, initially exploring self-awareness, self honesty, self acceptance and then expanding to explore how the self relates to the world, other people and all that is apparently not-you.
Let me meet you in the moment with who you are and where you are at. I will be spontaneous, intuitive and deep listening. I seek to listen to you beyond how your self-image listens to yourself, listening beyond the words you use. I shall track and stalk what you are not hearing, what you are ignoring or refusing in your own being. How do we get more of you to awaken? I will invite you to deeply fall in love with yourself as this is your biggest challenge.
Realise deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.
Benefits of Spiritual Companionship
People need a deeper connection; together we achieve that connection by exploring acceptance, self-honesty, the present moment, death and love. Too many of us are consumed by thought and identification with the mind. That way of life is not peaceful, and you know it. We can learn to identify the distinction between Self and ego. If we shift our perspective to the Self we can observe that our mind, our capacity to think, is an exceptional quality or tool, to be engaged under our command. If we don't take time to drop down out of our heads to become one with the body, we can't discriminate what's happening and what needs to be done. The opportunity is to re-engage with our most important tool, namely our nature, our instinct. Take the path of least resistance versus forcing, fighting, or winning.
It is time to learn to live without escaping. The challenge we face today is our willingness to release the old mental structures we use to make the world knowable and "safe." In becoming spiritually grounded we'll explore the practice of identifying as the Self and using intuition to feel what's most real, even if it's an uncomfortable reality like being uncertain. We can learn techniques for staying present and falling farther in. Don’t miss your life, it is happening right NOW! You may not get another one; or may you?
Open, Safe, Supportive
What's your true priority—your inner life or your outer life? Perhaps it is a blend of the two? In a safe, supported environment we can get you back in touch with yourself and evolve your spiritual dimension and explore how to make it flourish both in your inner and outer lives.
Together we can:
- Discover Self Awareness, Self Acceptance and Self-honesty
- Develop a relationship with your Self or a higher power.
- Respond to as opposed to reacting to circumstances and others.
- Intuitively choose versus logically or linearly deciding.
- Honour your inklings versus explaining, rationalizing, proving.
- Dance with versus controlling others.
- Learn how to release unwanted emotions
- Take extreme self-care of every part of yourself.

On my own journey, I've discovered deep and powerful truths that hold up for large numbers of people, truths that have been validated over and over, when there is an opportunity I exercise my responsibility to share these truths with you. However... Remember do not accept anything that I say as the Truth, you must find that for yourself by challenging your beliefs. A critical investigation of beliefs increases the willingness to take responsibility for them and also nurtures self-reliance.

Self Help Coaching Resources
I'd love to work deeply with you. But if life is calling you to go-it-alone right now, then you may find the following resources useful. And of course it goes without saying, if you need any help, mentoring or reflection along the way, do give me a call even if its just for an hour!
FRIENDS IF YOU WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR PRACTICE GET YOUR ASS ON A ZAFU
Several years intro developing my own meditation practuice at home, a good friend pointed me towards buying a Buckwheat Filled Meditation Cushion (known as a Zafu).
If you are serious about developing a meaningful practice or simply starting out and wanting to give yourself the best shot, then you MUST BUY A ZAFU!
These are the books that catapulted me into a deeply spiritual way of life. I would say these three books are all you really need to deploy a bedrock of understanding behind a lifetime of meditation practice.
To make the journey into The Power of Now, we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language and a question and answer format to guide us. Surrender to the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here we find our joy, are able to embrace our true selves and discover that we are already complete and perfect. If we are able to be fully present and take each step in the Now we will be opening ourselves to the transforming experience of The Power of Now. It's a book to be revisited again and again.
This worldwide phenomenon has captured the world's imagination with its ability to change readers' lives for the better.
I have enjoyed sitting with Eckhart Tolle in a retreat environment, and I have enjoyed soaking up the space that his words point to. If you explore Eckharts teachings and you have questions or require any subtle guidance, please do give me a call.
The MBSR Online Course has a vast body of research behind it - and this program is the only official online training that teaches the method pioneered by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts.
The MBSR Online Course is presented by two expert teachers from the Center for Mindfulness: Dr. Saki Santorelli and senior instructor Florence Meleo-Meyer. The course allows you to experience the proven eight-week curriculum for learning to use your innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, and illness.
Mindfulness is more than a treatment for health issues. What we find especially encouraging about the spread of mindfulness is that more and more people are discovering how this practice opens the door for a richer, more rewarding experience of life. It can also be a powerful foundation for spiritual exploration.
Mindfulness is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life that starts with paying attention in the present moment in an open, non-judgmental way.
As more than 20,000 people who have taken the The MBSR Online Course have learned, using mindfulness techniques gives you effective new tools for handling emotional stress, chronic pain, and health conditions - as well as elevating your overall capacity for resilience, balance, and awareness.
Some of the clinically proven benefits of MBSR are:
The fruits of mindfulness practice extend far beyond what can be tested in a clinic or hospital. By intentionally orienting our lives towards the present moment, we often experience a greater delight in what the world is offering us right now instead of deferring our happiness for some time in the future. We become more attentive to our relationships, our day-to-day decisions, and the many ways we are supported and embraced by life.

The creator of this interesting Meditation Course says "drowning in stress and tension is real. Nothing was going good for me – my ideas were being rejected at work, the management threatened to fire me if targets weren’t met, and I was constantly arguing with my husband over trivial stuff. Thank god that I came across the Meditation Mastery Secrets course online, or I would have checked into a mental facility by now. Guided meditation pulled me out of the hole… It is essentially a form of meditation that allows someone to guide you through the meditation and achieve a specific outcome, whether it is finding your ideal job, losing weight, quitting smoking, spiritual connection or just to reduce stress.
Guided meditation requires nothing more than a comfortable, quiet environment so you can concentrate on your breathing and the imagery that is being described for you. Like me, you are transported to a peaceful setting where you will see, hear, feel and taste in your imagination and learn more about yourself and your true purpose.
Benefits of Meditation Mastery Secrets Guided meditation is very versatile as you may use it every now and then to restore your sense of self and inner peace or daily to reset your emotional climate, help you get to sleep or help you overcome a hurdle in your life.
