Seeking the Seekers

“Each Human Has the Potential for Full Integration…

“…the constant awareness of and union with our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual parts.

“Beyond anger, beneath fear, past numbness and alienation, there rests within each of us the possibility to be more than we are now. Magic is available. Wholeness is just around the corner. The power of wholeness is the power to change the world.”

T. Thorn Coyle, “Kissing the Limitless”

For the past few years, it’s been my privilege and pleasure to help people find their right work. I’m pretty good at it and it would make sense to continue to build that practice.

However, I’ve been feeling a strong urge to reach out to the people who are seeking a deeper, more authentic and integrated way of living. People who see life as an opportunity for healing, integration, growth, and waking up. People who unironically use the phrase “hero’s journey” when talking about their life.

"I don't want to have to do this living. I just walk around. I want to be swept off my feet, you know? I want my children to have magical powers. I am prepared for amazing things to happen. I can handle it."

- from the film “Me and You and Everyone We Know” by Miranda July

This is where I am right now. Do any of these ring true for you?

  • You feel like you're on a path, even if you don't know where it's heading.

  • You seek to feel integrated in all areas of your life: work, relationships, spiritual life, leisure time, etc.

  • You’re energized by emotional and psychological deep-diving.

  • You're on a constant mission to better understand yourself and the world.

  • You have a deeply felt connection to art, music, or nature, but you may identify as agnostic because nothing else seems to fit.

  • You crave spiritual experiences/connections but don't vibe with most organized religion.

  • You're repelled by systems, gurus, etc. who claim to have all the answers.

  • You're most comfortable at the intersection of intellect and intuition, science and spirituality, skepticism and belief. You're comfortable with paradoxes, ambiguity, and unanswered questions.

If this resonates, I want to hear from you!

Let’s find each other (and ourselves) in this magical, scary, fucked-up, amazing world. Let’s work on and through our shit. Let’s journey together towards lives of wholeness, depth, and meaning.

People, I have so much cool stuff to share with you and I’ve been self-censoring a good bit of it because it didn’t fit neatly under the career-coaching umbrella or jibe with my “professional image.”

For Example:

A couple of weeks ago, I started offering tarot coaching consultations.

This was a little terrifying for someone who’s invested a lot of time in establishing herself as a smart, practical, down-to-earth career expert. What will people think? I worried.

At some point, I realized that every career client I coach goes through this exact same thought process.

“I’ve spent so much time building myself up as a ____! It’s going to feel so weird to tell everyone I’m doing something different now.”

(I figure it’s good to jump back in the pool every now and then so I don’t forget what it’s like to start over.)

Along the same lines, I’ve been trying to follow the advice I give to so many people: pay attention to what energizes you. This tarot offering is a way for me to practice listening to myself, being brave and taking the first step in a new direction.

Back to You:

I’m still figuring out what all this is going to look like. I’m following inspiration as it comes, but I’m not in this alone. Where do you need support on your journey? What kinds of things are you interested in learning more about? Drop me a comment or jump on the mailing list to stay in the loop.

(When you sign up, you’ll get a whole bundle of goodies: my excellent Anatomy of a Dream Job workbook, a 10-minute confidence-boosting meditation, and my no-BS guide on starting a meditation practice that you’ll actually stick with.)

Thanks for reading! <3
