What kind of a person wouldn't?
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.
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.

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.
