I found integral awakening coaching extremely helpful as I prepared for [and passed] a highly stressful ordination interview to be granted fellowship as a Unitarian Universalist minister. Each session with Michael yielded valuable insights and practices to help me live into the fullest expression of who I am.
The result of working with Michael is feeling a joy in daily life as opposed to feeling depressed. The mindfulness of interactions with people is much more profound and I have learned that what is natural for my being is to say things with more kindness and less sharp edges. I am relishing the lightness of the heart. After a few sessions, I felt almost giddy and wanted everyone to experience what I have with Michael. I am indebted to him for helping me see my heart clearly.
My coaching time with Michael has supported my growth immeasurably. His loving acceptance of what is offers me a safety net, encouragement to continue on this path, and amazing resources. When I have felt doubt, faltered or spun out, Michael has listened and, with loving acceptance, offered his support and guidance garnered from his extensive tool-box. He helps ground me and refocus my practice and is completely present at every meeting. I feel blessed to know Michael as an honored coach.
