Your journey starts here...

You are a successful leader, a senior executive, a professional, or a business owner.  And you have questions about what life expects from you and how to reach your full potential.  These questions are not easy to answer on your own.  This may be the time to work with a trusted thought partner, someone who supports you and yet gently challenges you to look inside and find the answers you are looking for.


I provide a safe space to explore together the most crucial questions that come up in your life and in your business: increasing performance, conscious leadership, personal and professional balance, transition into a new role or phase of life, leaving a legacy, building the next generation, and rekindling a sense of purpose.


My coaching approach delves into the “science and care of the soul”.  It allows my clients to unfold into new, deeper ways of being – not because I teach them how to, but because together we create the space to let our lives speak.

Integral coaching is a comprehensive response to human development.  Its practitioners reach deeply into the past, gathering wisdom from East and West, while still staying current with the frontiers of new discovery in cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, spirituality, somatics, and other disciplines.  We call our work integral because we include everything about the client and the client’s world in our coaching.  Our coaching brings forth a view of the client that includes how the client represents himself and investigates his social world, habits, relationships with the body, the quality of self-care, and the amount of attention and energy available to take on change.

The method attends to the individuality of the clients as well as the social context in which they are always embedded. Our individuality includes our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and intentions as well as everything that is happening to us physiologically. Our social context includes the language(s) we speak, the culturally-specific practices we engage in, the relationships we are a part of and the history of the groups we belong to. Additionally, we are always in a shared physical environment that includes nature, technology, and human artifacts, and our background, sense of possibility and our mood are shaped by the physical space we are in.

I do not believe that we have to choose between a successful career and an ethical, balanced, and examined life. Certainly, there are challenges and trade-offs. But as we expand our awareness and our comfort with paradox and complexity, we realize that we can have it all. It is perhaps simply that the definition of "having it all" may shift as we develop and grow.

If you are interested in this quest and this journey, I would love to hear from you. I do not write a regular newsletter and I am very mindful of not spamming the member of my Enlightened Retreats community. But I occasionally send my thoughts, invitation to retreats, and updates. Each time, this is an opportunity for me to engage with our community and I respond to every one who writes to me.

Join my community and stay in touch.
