Coaching with Spirit April 2021

Would you like to Facilitate Transformation in Others?

Coaching WIth Spirit is our most popular non-academic program and many of our students have been attracted to this Certification in addition to their graduate education.

Do you believe that coaches are here to heal the world, to help end suffering, to bring the light of love to others? The creator of our Coaching with Spirit (CWS), Guthrie Sayen, would say so and he adds, “To do that, we must heal ourselves. We must come home to ourselves, so we can help others make the same journey home. We are bearers of light.”  

“The road to mastery leads through the temple of your own heart. Your heart contains every treasure you are looking for. When you uncover your own light, you can help others uncover theirs.”

Would you like to Facilitate Transformation in Others?

We asked Guthrie, “What have you learned about yourself while teaching Coaching With Spirit?” 

We are attaching some of his words of wisdom below as well as his recent video interview – if you would like to experience the depth of conversation which is waiting for you tonight!

We often think that our pain comes from our circumstances: our job, our finances, our partner, our lack of a partner, our overloaded schedules, our childhood wounds. Whatever it is, it seems to stand in the way of our happiness and to prevent us from answering our deeper calling.

Here’s the paradox. The circumstance we most want to change or remove is the doorway to the treasures we seek. Pain is the portal to self-acceptance, a self-acceptance that is so deep that it transforms how we relate to ourselves, to others, to the source of all life and love.

You arrived here because you are called. Your calling shows up as curiosity, confusion, or discomfort. Your discomfort or pain—sometimes in the background, sometimes in the foreground—is a gift. Your pain is your bridge from where you are to where you long to be.

One way to cross the bridge is to go on the inner journey of self-acceptance. Do you want to learn more about this journey?

Another way to cross the bridge is to find your soul’s purpose, that is, your deepest calling, the reason you were born. Do you want to find your soul’s purpose?

Finally, you may be a coach who wants to cross the bridge into full mastery of your unique set of gifts. Do you want to go deeper in your own process so that you take your clients deeper? Do you feel called to bring more light into the world through coaching?

Do you ever ask yourself: why can’t I do for myself what I am doing for my clients?

Coaches often harbor a secret sense of not being good enough. Few things are more painful than being called and feeling that you are falling short at your calling.

Your pain is the hidden door into who you are and what you are most skilled at doing for others. This is true no matter where you are in your career, whether you are a coach in training or a competent coach moving into mastery or a master coach moving into artistry.

We often think that our pain comes from our circumstances: our job, our finances, our partner, our lack of a partner, our overloaded schedules, our childhood wounds. Whatever it is, it seems to stand in the way of our happiness and to prevent us from answering our deeper calling.

Here’s the paradox. The circumstance we most want to change or remove is the doorway to the treasures we seek. Pain is the portal to self-acceptance, a self-acceptance that is so deep that it transforms how we relate to ourselves, to others, to the source of all life and love.

Coaches are here to heal the world, to end suffering, to bring the light of love to others. To do that, we must heal ourselves. We must come home to ourselves, so we can help others make the same journey home. We are bearers of light. We are technicians of the sacred.  

The road to mastery leads through the temple of your own heart. Your heart contains every treasure you are looking for. When you uncover your own light, you can help others uncover theirs.

You arrived here because you are called. Your calling shows up as curiosity, confusion, or discomfort. Your discomfort or pain—sometimes in the background, sometimes in the foreground—is a gift. Your pain is your bridge from where you are to where you long to be.

One way to cross the bridge is to go on the inner journey of self-acceptance. Do you want to learn more about this journey?
