My favorite coaching teachers demonstrated that coaching is both art and science. Science or strategy alone will not strengthen our core competencies, nor will art; rather we need practice in both arenas to confidently respond to life situations.   

Over the past 30 years I have studied a variety of learning tools that helped me better observe my relationship to self, others and to life. With regular practice, I have honed my instincts/skill to both observe and shift varied mental states to produce more spaciousness and openness. 

Most of the practices reveal insights we can use to release tension, discontent, stress, and most any destructive emotion. Our bodies harbor our histories, our emotional patterns, even where and how we hold or use our breath. As a somatic coach and mindfulness practitioner, I train to watch and work with breath, using the faculty of curiosity to better appreciate the state in which clients find themselves. Something as simple as watching our breath reveals multitudes about how we relate to our stories. The combination of mindfulness, somatic coaching and Core Individuation Energy work allows me to go more deeply into the experience(s) clients are sharing, and provides a witnessing posture supporting them to release and accept themselves as whole human beings. Over time clients experience more ease and equanimity despite the many challenges they may confront.

Tenzin Rinpoche, author of Awakening the Sacred Body, introduces readers to the power of breath, as it not only strengthens health and well- being, but also helps us change our relationship to ourselves, and others. In September we began using his text as we explored the power and insights of the throat Chakra. Breath work provides a gateway to reduce the obscurations caused by varied mental states.

In October we will continue to work with Rinpoche’s book, as we explore the lessons and benefits of opening the heart Chakra—the true nature of mind. Whether you work in corporate or non-corporate settings, you are always working with opening the heart/mind. The addition of a breath work practice enhances your yoga and sitting practice and will inform your coaching so that you better harness the art and science of a profession that continually grows and changes. Additionally you will strengthen your capacity to ask powerful questions, listen with an intention to hear, modulate your emotions so that you experience greater ease and tranquility. 

If you want to build mastery in your practice, you have to be open to learning about yourself, working from the inside the out.

I encourage new and veteran community of practice participants to sign up for healer coaching sessions. You can email me at or call me at +1.941.554.8466 to set up your session.
