What Can Coaching Provide?

People seek out a coach for many different reasons. Sometimes life is presenting so many challenges and options, it helps to have another clear mind to sort through all the possibilities and design the simplest and most enjoyable way forward. In the process we may discover new insights and clarity about what we wish to do with our life. Many traditional cultures included rites of passage that helped each person discover who they were, and what held meaning for them in their lives.

Transforming Your Emotions Through the Six Lokas

Transforming Your Emotions Through the Six Lokas

January 16 – March 5, 2016 This online course reveals a very effective means of self discovery and transformation, based upon the ancient system of the Six Lokas, or realms of existence. On one level these realms of existence can be understood as realities separate from our own, and are traditionally described as the realms of the gods, demigods, humans, animals, hungry ghosts, and hell beings. In the mythology of these realms, each suffers from its own distinct malady, for example the gods are spiritually lazy for they live such a comfortable life, while the animals suffer from their ignorance since they do not have higher cognitive abilities.
