I want you to come to the mountains for some coaching with me.
This is my cathedral. My office. My back yard.
Call it immersion therapy, in the planet you are taking climate action for.
Whatever you’re stuck with, whatever fear you’re feeling, whatever change of direction you want to make, or if you are just exhausted, coaching with me in this space brings new perspectives, connecting you deeply to your wellbeing and problem-solving creativity…which in turn opens up your capacity to innovate and design solutions that help the planet to flourish.
In Japan, they prescribe Forest Bathing as a proven part of self-care and wellbeing. I prescribe being bathed in the wisdom of the mountains and feeling the weight of the stillness under your feet. I've been doing this for a long time now - it works.
When you come for coaching with me, we stroll as we talk, because there is a stillness in movement; I know it’s actually quite painful to be super busy and then come to a dead-stop so we move. As we do, you slowly decompress and come face-to-face with the changes that you want to make.
We will simply ‘flâner’ – a gorgeous French word for strolling, meandering and wandering. We’ll rest on a couple of benches along the way and look at the view (your eyes will hurt with the beauty). I’ll introduce you to my best tree (it's a wild-woman thing and I’m often totally busted by passers-by as I’m having a chat with it) – it’s an Elder, a goddess tree of beginnings and endings. We’ll have a picnic and eat good cake (probably GF Banana Choc Bread to the lovely Sian Leigh's recipe).
I can’t guarantee the weather but I can guarantee that you will feel awe – a deep connection with something greater than yourself – which increases your wellbeing. And I won’t give you a magic bullet in one session but I do promise a starting point for making the changes that you want to make personally and professionally.
If all of this seems a luxury because you’re working hard to save the world, can I just point out that this is the world that you are working hard to save. Be in it to be inspired by it.
Yes, you can be here and back in half a day on the train. Yes, you can come on a weekday or a weekend. Yes, the changes you want to make will start happening. All that you need to do is say Yes.
I know you want to come. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more and arrange a time to be here.
I'll leave you with the eloquence of John Muir as a final invitation, “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
