Truth Speaking Softly

The soft curve of the day meets me and invites discovery Gently I awaken to wonderment with eyes clouded over by too much pain or too much looking for pain It is so familiar, this search for intensity, this search for words to somehow express

One Wild and Precious Life

We are about to tear down our little cottage. It was built in the early eighties and has been lived in by three families including ours. We bought it a few months after Laura was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013.  We had rented cottages for summer vacations off and on over the years.

Spirals of Development

I remember being in the middle of a conversation with a client when she said, "Shouldn't I have this thing licked by now? It has been around at different times my whole life and I thought I had taken care of it the last time. I’ve worked so hard on this." Her voice got quiet as she reached the last word.

But You Also Eat Jello

Hanging Out Your Shingle

Another new business opened on Gore Street in Perth. Laura and I walked by it the other day, peeked in the windows, admired the logo, and talked about how much we hoped they do well. We notice new storefronts when they open or avidly read announcements in local newspapers about new businesses coming to town.

Poetry: A Heart Resource for Coaches

It happened during my Integral Master Coach™ certification (CERT) training: my first direct experience of poetry’s impact as a coaching resource.  Katherine and I were partners, practicing the method on each other.  My topic dealt with trusting my decisions around work.  As part of her Offer, Katherine read aloud John O’Donohue’s poem, Fluent:

A New Way In

I’ve been working with Laura’s suggestions regarding Minimums and Maximums for my long-term practice. If you haven’t watched Laura’s 8-minute Min-Max video, do it now. This blog will make much more sense once you do.
