The Art of Hearing II; A Course In listening, connection, and hope

Is it yes?

I'm busy, that's for sure. But I'm bored. (But I'm not motivated, But I'm not inspired, I'm tired in a going through the motions kind of way.)

All I ever hear is bad news. Is anything going right anymore?

There isn't enough time in the day to get everything done as it is, let alone work on the things I would really like to do.

Does what I'm doing really matter? Sometimes they feel pretty meaningless in the scheme of things.

Sometimes I am certain I'm focused on the right things. Other times, well...I doubt if I am.

Sometimes I think I look at things differently than everyone else. Is it just me? Sometimes I'm not sure I fit in.

Can't people see this is all just stuff! I'm losing {just lost} my {xxxxxx...parent, spouse, friend, home, job, health, sense of feeling secure, etc...] for goodness' sake!

Everything is about "get this done", "get that done", "get these 25 things done". I feel like I'm not even seen as a person anymore.

Leadership isn't just about the work we do; it's also about who we are.

I'm not sure this is what I want to do the rest of my life. Yet, what would I do? I can't be thinking about xxxxx! I have a pay for, to raise, to think about.

If you find you are saying "yes" to at least one of these, join me MARCH 27th, 2023 for a FREE WEBINAR to learn how to begin framing or reframing your story from one of disconnection to connection, from uncertain to hope-fully, from separated to a sense of whole.

I can’t begin to walk in your shoes, yet I can empathize with saying “yes” to at least some of the statements listed. I was once someone who was living life in…auto-pilot. Or in the words of a dear friend, running the treadmill of life. And then statements and questions started nudging me from within. I was busy, but I was also restless. I didn’t always feel I fit in, so I further shape-shifted to try to fit in to those around me, which only created more inner nudging, I really don’t fit in! I started to daydream and think “maybe someday”, which though dreams are good, they were also taking me away from being present with what was in front of me. Can we then say, “see above”. I.e. further not fitting in. Further busy, but restless. Pretty soon I was traveling that spiral staircase of life in what felt like a doom loop, though I wasn’t feeling doom. More like something was cracking open within me, and it was rather uncomfortable, and I felt like I kept spinning or swinging to and fro. On an island by myself at times, too. I felt I was two separate people – the one at work and the one outside of work, which made me feel very disconnected. And even harder was the person I was “being” outside of work was really starting to struggle with what I was “doing” in work, which only created more angst because then the voices of “I can’t” and “I shouldn’t” started doing their part in adding to my disconnection within.

There were many cracks taking place in my cocoon or shell as I like to think about a cracking open that happens within us, including cracks made from grief. My own grieving, as well as those whose paths crossed with mine also with their own grief. On that journey of loss and losing is where I found gain and whole.

The author in me could write so much more, but it is best I save it for our time together in the near future. Which leads me to the March 27th webinar and the upcoming course that begins April 10th.

If you join this FREE webinar MARCH 27th, you will walk away with some “supplies” I found helpful to put in my personal backpack (figuratively speaking) along the path of my transformational journey. I wish to pay them forward to you. You will not only gain supplies you can add to your own backpack, you will walk away with an offer for a free coaching session, the chance to win a raffle prize, and the opportunity to learn more about attending a 10-week course that begins April 10th in which you will find individual, and collective, accompaniment on your own transformational journey. Said another way, minimally you will have me to walk beside you. As others join the course, you will have a team.

Having a non-judgmental, supportive, and safe space in which to unfold our wings and bravely step into the wholeness of our BE-coming certainly makes what can feel like quite a mountainous climb easier to hike. Though we are all on a hike of life, no two people walk the same journey. That is what I honor most of all when holding a webinar or a class or a coaching session. I meet you where YOU are at on YOUR journey, and then I walk beside you from there. Sure, I have much knowledge, experience, and “supplies” to draw from and share, but the only set method I follow is one. To listen, unconditionally. To YOU!

I then draw upon what my inner whisper says could be of value for YOU as I hold up a mirror for you to see the EXTRAORDINARY YOU that you might not currently be seeing. See, here’s the essence of things. YOU MATTER. And the only journey that matters is the ONE YOU are taking. I would be honored to support you on that journey.

If you found yourself saying “yes” to any of these, then I hope I can soon say hello, welcome, and it is my privilege to start walking beside you. I welcome the opportunity to share with you things I have learned – and continue to learn – in how to hike up and down the switchbacks of life with ease and grace and joy.

I look forward to meeting you March 27th! If you have any questions, contact me at

Talk soon!
