Stacking the deck in your favor through additional resources!

One hour every week in coaching or therapy (that’s 1 out of 168 hours) will not create the change you seek unless you are practicing and exposing yourself to new learning on a regular basis outside of our sessions.

Neuroscientists have discovered that 95% of what we think, feel and do is habitual, is unconscious AND a repeat of the past. And because neurons that fire together wire together, what we think, feel and do simply perpetuates what we think, feel and do. This is the landscape of feeling stuck. To create change entails becoming intentionally inspired to notice and consciously re-evaluate ways of being, thinking and feeling that we normally unconsciously let ourselves fall into. And to extend this level of awareness to our visceral body and breath experience. Self-compassion is an essential companion along this path, without which the path becomes more of a self perfection project than a true engagement in wholeness.

This resource list is here to support your commitment to compassionately making conscious how you unconsciously keep recreating what you do not want in your life, and to learn to trust and follow your essential inspirations. My hope is that you find in these resources additional inspiration and practical applicability to what you are unlearning and learning as we work together. These are just a few possibilities and you may find others on your own that fit as well or better for you. Please note, I have studied each of these approaches and teachers, and incorporate the gifts of each in my work with clients as is fitting.
