Each of us has our own relationship to growth and change, though there are some common patterns. Changes that we want, rather than those that we feel we need, ought to, or should do, tend to be more achievable and become an integral part of a new version of self.
Our work with individuals seeks to be transformative; metamorphic. We do not look upon it lightly and expect clients to be ready and willing for possible substantial internal discomfort as they redefine their place in the world. A skilled orchardist envisions what has not yet come to be, then works with trees and soil to enable growth toward an unseen state, alternating pruning, nourishing, and leaving be. Likewise we create space in our lives for new and exciting directions by articulating a desired future that does not yet exist. We begin working toward it, release the parts of our lives which no longer serve us, and have patience as change reshapes our lives.
Knowing what we want, then, becomes critical. Knowing what we want starts with knowing why we exist; our personal vision. Coaching supports us as we grow into new ways of being. Emotional intelligence aids our navigation of inner and outer relationships. Retreats give space for rest and renewal.
