Beautiful, powerful things happen when people consciously come together in the name of love, together believing in transformation. The force of what unfolds, as well as the outcomes, far surpasses the sum of the parts.
I'll introduce concepts that I'll make super-practical in the application and reinforce things you already know (and any concepts that come up over the course of our meetings). I'll introduce tools and we'll practice them together. We'll apply the teachings to current issues and circumstances group members bring up (and if your group has a theme or specific shared intention, we'll hold to that in all that we address).
While sometimes a particular individual will be in the hot seat in session, all that we do will always support everyone in their own process. You will never be a passive observer of someone else's work, as I'll continue to invite you to do your own while anyone else is meeting something specific to them. Whatever it is, there will always be universal application in how we meet it and what concepts or processes are called forth.
Note that participants do not comment on one another's work except to offer messages of support. All are always invited to share what they gained for themselves after we've done a process with someone else in the hot seat. Group members do not advise one another, but are always welcome to share experiences, tools, and resources.
if you join a coaching group
In joining, you commit to live attendance to at least 4 of 6 sessions—we can't predict or ensure what will happen, so this means simply that you have good reason to believe that 4 of the 6 sessions work for you and that you hold the intention to attend at least that many. They will be taped for replay and will go out ONLY to group members, not to be shared with others.
You also commit to paying for the entire round no matter how actively you participate. If a life reason arises that inspires you to renegotiate any terms with me, please make contact as soon as you know that's your case and I will happily enter into that discussion with you.
If interpersonal difficulties arise in the group or anyone has a gripe with me or about anything I do, you commit to meeting that, too, with the intention of letting it heal all that the situation has come to heal. We will bring anything that comes up into the coaching process, as the only possible thing that can come up is the stuff of your liberation. It all comes up to clear out, not to show you what you're stuck with.
I have a strong belief in our capacity for true and lasting change, and for living life in a way that's increasingly peaceful, satisfying, deeply fulfilling. Our gifts are meant to be known and grown and used for our own joy and for the good of all. I will engage in this process from the fullness of who I am to date and invite you to do the same. (For all of us, that simply means to keep coming back to that when we catch ourselves elsewhere, not somehow sustaining what we cannot sustain!)
1. Share a group coaching process for 6 weeks, meeting weekly.
This is the no-frills in-and-out version. We'll have no contact between sessions (though group members are welcome to be in touch with one another through any format), sharing resources and support as you feel drawn.
MAKE NO MISTAKE: We'll do deep, transformational work each time we meet. We'll drop in fully when we're together.
2. Share a group coaching process for 12 weeks, meeting biweekly.
There will be other bells and whistles with this, including a short-term secret Facebook group (lasting for the 12 weeks) to allow people to ask questions, tell about successes, and invite and offer support along the way. I'll post something like a video or more substantial bit of writing on each off-week. I will not necessarily read or respond to everything that unfolds in the group (depending on volume), but will attend to questions and issues brought up anytime I'm tagged.
two ways to join a group
1. Form a group with people of your choice.
Organize a group of people totaling 4-12. We can certainly divide the price by the number of people. However, if you're aware of differing levels of current financial well-being and want to divvy up the total fee differently among yourselves, please feel free to organize that and have either one person pay me the total, or let me know what each group member is paying and I'll invoice each of you for direct payment at the right price point. I prefer full payment in advance and will also accept a first half-payment in advance and the second half after the third session. If you'd like a different agreement, please propose it to me.
Your group is welcome to have a specific theme or shared intention for our meetings. It's equally possible for you to simply gather on the basis of whatever connection you share, and we'll simply work on whatever is up for each individual (all of which will always be mined for its universal value for all concerned!).
2. Let me know that you'd like to be in a group.
I'll send you a brief questionnaire about scheduling and other parameters. When I have enough people available who could work together (minimum of four), I'll let you know.
