Coaching for Individuals 

“In the end, we need to feel that the life we lived was our life, not someone else’s, that it was chosen rather simply our following the instructions on the box, and that we stood in a respectful relationship to that which is larger than ordinary comforts and provided a deep sense of meaning, of satisfaction, and reciprocity. Then it may be said that we have really been here, living the life we were meant to live. The task, and the path we take in addressing it, will be different for each of us, but that is the gift we are asked to share, the gift of our separate selves.” James Hollis

Our coaching methodology rests on a solid foundation of relationship characterized by trust, respect, and constructive conversations. The goal of our coaching is to develop competence that leads to both sustainable excellence and personal fulfillment. Our coaching is based on the premise that every person is both unique and constantly changing.

4. Inner Adventure Weekend

The Inner Adventure Weekend invites you to draw forth the unknowns of your inner world. What guides your choices, your insights, and your motivations? The way you transport yourself, the way you interact, the way you experience the world will all become evident to you. What is vital in your life and in your essence will become more available to you.

An Inner Adventure Weekend is designed to generate possibilities from experiences. The weekend is created to assist you in discovering what is essential for you, as well as what has blocked you from this understanding. An initial pre-assessment is completed in order to determine if this adventure would be of benefit to you. If so, then possible dates will be discussed.
