To learn, teach. Ever heard that phrase? That's why.
I coach people because I live deep in the heartland of learning -- or really, remembering -- every single thing I share with my clients. And I so want to know. I so want to remember:
- How to own the truth that burns deep inside my chest and thighs.
- Why it's better to do it now than later.
- That I am just as lovable, whichever I choose.
- How to be bold, courageous, fiercely honest and uncensored, while also being tender, gentle and exquisitely honest, in marriage and other intimate partnerships, friendships, relationships.
I coach people to feel the vitality of love deep within their being, because I want to feel that too. Oh, I long to feel that too, with my one wild and precious life. Why do I coach? I coach because humans are beautiful -- every single human being is SO BEAUTIFUL -- it knocks the breath right out of my lungs when I really sit with that. And when I'm being honest, I will tell you without a sliver of a doubt that I love every single human being on Earth.
I coach to feel.
I coach to remember.
