"Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat"
~Robert Frost

For Ken...

Bespectacled beloved
A nuturer for the masses
For the one
Who is lost
A shepherd of wisdom
And folly
He sips from the font of truth
Authentically he roams
Seeking the telling tears
The ripe blossom
The impossible possibility
He is awake
A fighter
For the masses
For the one
Who is lost

Here is a first. Every newsletter has begun with a poem. With a poem that I have written. This week one of my dear friends wrote me a poem--about me. I humbly submit that she has me pegged. She gets it. She understands what it is that I want to be about in the world. I am on a journey just like my clients and I will fight for your heart and my heart using all the tools available to me.

The Poet's Way

I've found a home. It's called The Poet's Way. You can join us as we are scheduling retreats for the rest of 2012 in Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Asheville, and Minneapolis.

The Poet's Way is life changing. We believe that there is a better way to live. We believe that life is meant to be lived at a deeper level of meaning. At a deeper level of resonance. We believe that people come alive when they live authentically, creatively, and expressively. We use poetry spoken out loud as a way to tap into that deeper meaning--to unleash our true selves onto the world. We want to live lives of purpose and bring you along on the journey. You don't have to call yourself a poet to come along--although we believe EVERYONE is a poet.

My Passionate Plea

I want to be connected to something bigger than myself.

What am I connected to beyond myself:
My kids
Real-ness in the world
What everyone really wants--love
What's missing?
Deep abiding relationships
People moving towards their "actual" wants
People are moving too fast
People are killing themselves
People are lying to themselves

What is it that your really want for your own life?

You're ambitious.
You're successful.
It seems you have a pretty good life.
You know though--that everything isn't what it seems.

We tend to do the same things over and over again in our lives expecting different results. We chase the dreams of our 20s only to find in our 40s that none of those things really mattered. What we really wanted was a life of joy. A life of friendship. A life of adventure. 

Instead, we find ourselves living for someone else's idea of a perfect life.

Authentic Development coaching is all about living a life of meaning--no matter what stage of life we are in.

Coaching changes lives. Coaching will bring you new discoveries. Give us a call or drop us a line. We'd like to provide a kick-ass, fighting for your heart, no holds barred coaching session. We guarantee that you will be called to action on something critical in your life and that call will come directly from inside you.  Learn more...
