March blew in today…

Mar 1, 2017

March blew in today along with the early arrival of Rocky Mountain Bluebird. She has been gone all winter. I’ve missed her. She is gutsy, loyal, resilient and a brilliant spacious sky blue coloration. For me, she is a symbol of Beginner’s Mind.

I’m curious… What have you missed in your inner life this winter? What has been gone all winter and is ready to return home? When shall you invite it back with open arms?

In November, the Migrating Robin stopped over in Santa Fe for what usually is a quick visit. However, she and her friends decided to stay the winter. It has been a delightful surprise to witness their thirst for life, their confident ease regardless of the weather and their moment to moment curiosity.

I’m curious… What has migrated into your life and has decided to stay? What is it thirsty for? How can you foster its highest excitement?

Rocky Mountain Bluebird and Migrating Robin have learned how to fly high, bearing witness to an ever-changing world. They travel throughout North America, and yet here on the land, they flit from Grandfather Pinon to Grandmother Cedar – alive with passion and continuous flow of Qi.

I’m curious… How are you flying high and living your life in this ever-changing world?

In Northern New Mexico, March is a time when winter begins to dissolve and the winds take away all that is not needed. We are left with what will thrive and flourish.

I’m curious… What in your life is ready to be dissolved and taken away? What in your life is ready to thrive and flourish?

With much love, a deep bow, and a mischievous smile to each of you…

Ann-Marie

Skillful Means is a great class that teaches the basics on how a to conduct a coaching session. You dive right into learning and practicing coaching. This helped me get out of my own way and start doing what I was learning. I often find myself learning new skills and then never putting them into action, but in this class I got the best of both worlds, learning and doing!
Mindy AndersonStudent CoachRice Lake, WI
Probably the single best course I’ve taken in a decade. The somatic templates and in-course use of them were shared from a place of deep knowing and wisdom. Amazing. The reading and sharing of new practices (for me) has made this whole course one of tapping into an ancient wisdom with simple and real practical use. Thank you!

“What is pulling on your sleeve?” was a question presented in [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness]. How often does someone actually ask you that or how often do you stop to really be mindful of what is present in you and pulling at you in the moment? I learned how to really dive into this feeling and capture the present in The Art of Engaged Mindfulness.

This class (Right Speech) was incredibly valuable for my coaching skills, and for my life. There was so much applicable information presented in an embodied and pragmatic way. Our instructor, Meg Hess, has an ability to evoke wisdom from everyone.
Jasmin BristowStudent CoachCalifornia
This class [Skillful Means] has been such a great growing experience. I’ve developed confidence using skills that had previously just been academic for me. I have especially enjoyed working with other students of such diverse backgrounds, and being able to see them use the same skill through their own unique perspectives. I hope to carry forward the creative and challenging energy I found here.

I had a superb experience in this class [Where Mind Goes, Qi Goes: Somatic Coaching with Qigong]. There is a universe to be explored when it comes to understanding somatic work. I just got more and more curious.

I love the capacity to be “unique and whole.” In this course, amidst the trauma of coronavirus, I found it was still possible to listen deeply in the moment. So thank you to this class and the life-giving experiences it offered. The course gave me fresh air for both my mind and body.

Right Speech is about listening with our whole beings. This class is about more than communication… it is about being in the world fully alive! Thank you!
