A Coaching Distinction to Help Create More Change for Clients

Things are feeling a little chaotic over here. I’m preparing to lead a 4-day retreat next week (it’s Retreat #1 for the folks in my Into the Depths Ritual and Facilitation Mastery training).

I’m also gearing up for some AMAZINGNESS coming your way about how to go deeper with your coaching skills (more on that coming very soon).

I hope you enjoy what I share and would love to hear your thoughts!
