What is Spiritual Coaching?

Spiritual Coaching embraces both life coaching and spiritual guidance. It is a gentle process of exploration focused on you telling your story.

It is particularly beneficial for those who suspect life is more than a series of events that we totally control or alternatively are victims of. We review life as a journey that reflects both the inner landscape and its materialization in the outer world.

Spiritual coaching may start with an assessment of your outer state and why you are encountering a particular series of events. Alternatively it may begin with what is happening at a deeper level and how this is effecting your life.

You begin to detach from the drama or story of your life and look deeper at the underlying journey that is attempting to unfold. Once you have some clarity from an inner perspective then you can work towards achieving objectives and goals that are consistent with your deeper needs.

Spiritual Coaching involves a variety of tools (link to Spiritual Coaching Tools) for your personal exploration including silence, the body scan, dreams, active imagination, the peek/peak experience, resistance, oracle and divination tools and creative imagination.

What can you get from Spiritual Coaching

Every journey is unique and different and will unfold according to each person’s needs and desires. Some of the benefits will include:

1) Creating a more balanced life by understanding your deeper priorities.

2) Developing goals and aspirations that are consistent with your own deeper desires.

3) Learning to identify and work with your own resistance to your highest good. (see http://ta44.wordpress.com/2008/09/11/resistance/)

4) Find renewed enthusiasm, creativity and curiosity in exploring your amazing journey.

5) Generating a new clarity about what kind of life you desire and find where your passion lies.

Some times in Spiritual Coaching we look at life like a jigsaw puzzle. It starts off with the pieces all higgledy-piggledy so you have no idea what kind of picture is trying to be formed. Then pieces of the puzzle start to be revealed. None of them may make any sense on their own. Often there are pieces missing and you have to be patient waiting for them to appear. But if you persevere, remain curious and trust that you will eventually make sense out of what often appears as chaotic, confused and disconnected, then one day something magical happens. There is a moment when the whole glorious picture, like the panorama of the Grand Canyon as you reach the rim, opens to your view.

Spiritual coaching can help you develop your own perfect picture. Through a gentle process of exploration focused on both your inner and outer experiences there is a time when it all comes together.

When we take one step toward God, he takes seven steps toward us.
