Coaching Philosophies

transformation and healing

No one in today’s world would dispute the need for the healing relationships. There is conflict in our relationships, families, business associations, communities, and our countries. The world is war-torn; there is hunger, famine, disaster, disease, and political turmoil that threatens to destroy all of humanity. On a smaller scale, families are being torn apart by conflict, divorce and disharmony. Individuals are finding it difficult to feel secure in their neighborhoods and homes. There is a better way! Coaching empowers individuals to the highest level of clarity and consciousness.

Many are asking the questions like: “What is the meaning and purpose of life?” “How can I have successful relationships?” “Does my life matter?” “How can I heal the pain that occurs in my relationships and home?” “What kind of skill sod families, friends, and colleagues need who are being impacts by the shattering of relationships from divorce, death, desertion, tension and violence?” “What can we do when facing the loss of life, job, or relationships?”

Coaches know that all healing begins with the heart; conversely all suffering comes from the mind and is felt in the body. Coaching is designed to provide a safe space for the individual to find guidance in the journey of the healing process by empowering the soul to action of healing the body, mind, and spirit/heart; being accountable for choices; and being aware of self, environment, community, and the world.

All the great religious traditions indicate that pain and suffering comes from ignorance. Christian tradition states, “The truth shall set you free.” The human body will experience pain, and coaching explores possibilities of how to calm the troubled mind, care for the body, and obtain peace of heart.

There are no limitations of the spirit, spiritual experience and growth. Healing—living a conscious life—truly transforms the heart into accountable living. Peace occurs when there is harmony between mind, body, and spirit. Healing occurs when we quiet the troubled mind, and have health in the body and peace of heart.

We experience conscious accountable living when we know the truth. Knowledge means not just an intellectual understanding, but an experiential understanding that is confirmed by our spirit when we are achieving highest level of clarity and consciousness. This must be followed by determination and actions. We must find our highest and best use of time, talents, and resources. With all of the passion of our heart we must link this to great good causes, making a difference with our uniqueness.

Coaching provides a place for people to have an “experience” of healing and transformation of heart, and empowering the spirit to a mighty change of heart, body, and mind.

Coaches are people who themselves are on a journey of healing. Coaches create conversations or questions to explore the mind and the heart in a way that touches the spirit—empowering the light of change. Coaches have experienced the “dark night of the soul” where everything is questioned. They have suffered because of their mistakes as well as those of others. The pains they have felt have caused them to seek answers—a path that would restore joy to their hearts. While their journey is alone, there will be fellow travelers who have walked this path. Coaches realize that out of the wound comes strength and great blessings.

Coaching does not deal with medical or psychiatric issues, social work, or psychology. The philosophies that guide and direct a coach are spiritual rather than medical, healing rather than curing. The work there may be therapeutic. It calls for action, and is progressive rather than defensive, proactive rather than reactive. The intent of coaching is to assist people in creating the kind of lives they desire to live. A coach will help people develop the attitudes, skills, and resources they need to live how they desire.
