Spiritual Life Coach
Searching? Seeking? There must be something more to life?
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.
What do I mean by Spirituality?
A sense of meaning and purpose, a sense of self, a sense of that which is greater than self. Spirituality for me is about integrating practices and ways-of-being into life that fundamentally enhance the experience of life. It is about connecting with your own spirit, that is spiritual and universal in essence.
It's a reconnection with the instictual nature within yourself. Listening to inner guidences and yearnings that lead you to ask the biggest question in life, "Who am I?".
Is Spirituality Religious?
Religion represents only a minor subset of the overall themes of spirituality and spiritual practices. I have seen that religion in many cases hinders rather than assists in spiritual development. I believe we are entering an inter-spiritual age and 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.
I am a spiritually independent teacher, a seeker without borders. There is nothing preachy or airyfairy about the wisdoms I have to share.
Realise deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.
Spiritual Life Coaching
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.
In quiet moments with yourself do you get the feeling that there is some kind of dimension that isn't being expressed in your life?
Do you have yearnings to connect to it? Do you crave meaningful exchange with people and your world, yet meet un-ending barriers? Do you have the sense that your being is searching for something? Perhaps an inner beauty, love, universal connection. Do you have the sense that something is missing, maybe healthy,harmonious, beautiful connection.
I can help you reconnect with own essence, reconnect with nature and other human beings.
"It was time to commit to a non-negotiable understanding with myself; to commit to “the End of Suffering.” Lee and I worked together to exile the voices that told me that personal happiness was only as good as outward success and rooted in things that were often outside my control. I’d seen the insanity of that equation and decided to take responsibility for my own happiness. And I mean all of it."
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! As an awakening coach I have supported many people through their own spiritual awakening.
Beauty, refinemnet and pleasure can be yours. You can manifest the fullest dimensions of your life. You can cultivate healthy life force flow within your system. I can help you align with the sponsoring energies that are already moving within you.
Many of my clients 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. For many, our quality time together opens doors to invigorated ways of looking at themselves, their 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.
The fact is, We are living in an era of change. The recent global economic crisis has given us a revelation: The old power structures based on hierarchy and top-down leadership don’t work anymore. In this era of change, those who choose to innovate along the lines of these fundamental shifts will be creators and pioneers of the future systems. My spiritual approach to life helps you take advantage of this historical moment to revolutionize how you lead. I can help you be Passion, Purpose and Peace amidst all this uncertainty.
"In the space between stories, we don't know how to navigate. The ways in which we once related to the world are no longer sufficient to the challenges we face, whether as individuals or as a species. Eventually, a new story is born to guide us, to provide meaning again, to give us a narrative structure that tells us who we are, where we are going, what is important, what is right, and how the world works. The new story follows and reinforces a new state of being." (C Eisenstein)
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?

WOW HOW EXCITING.
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.

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.

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.
