This art form has taught, and continues to teach me how to be present when I am with others, and in doing so, creating a safe space for creativity. Through this I have learned to trust my own creativity and intuition. It allows me to become present and connect to the unfolding process within a structure that allows it. It provides a real comfort about what is unfolding, and this in turn paves the way for collaboration and co-creation. It also taught me how to hold paradox and ambiguity and how to harness the power of lightness and playfulness. All of this is crucial to the coaching process.
My curiosity into different ancient wisdom traditions has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be human and how I can live a fulfilling life in service of something greater than myself. Spiritual practices such as mindfulness, contemplation and spending time in nature have helped me be present in my own life, to be calm and at peace. I bring this into my coaching.
