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…

This course [Skillful Means] is life changing personally and professionally. Skills are not only learned, but internalized so that the coach can be an effective listener. I would highly recommend this to any coach — experienced or a beginner.

Body Electric is great for those that are looking to challenge the automatic responses and default ways of thinking and being. Realizing that the conversation with the body has a different vibration and that it doesn’t always speak quickly is so valuable. Our bodies are a wealth of comfort and wisdom. This class provides tools for starting that dialogue with yourself and with others.
Alicia UpchurchStudent CoachBrooklyn, New York
It was a different type of MCS class and yet one of the most powerful ones. All classes were filled with practice, real time coaching and wisdom that can be applied in everyday life. This class is for coaches and people who want to develop their communication skills, empathy, listen deeply and speak skilfully. It’s also a class to learn a compassionate approach towards yourself, others and life in general. Read more

S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are was amazing; a must do class for anyone wanting to become a coach or anyone who is already a coach and needs to feel refreshed and revitalized by the possibilities of coaching and the difference the practice can make. I would thoroughly recommend this course, it is not for the fainthearted, you need to be all in – but it’s hard not to be when it’s delivered with such passion and commitment by Ann-Marie, and all your colleagues and peers are so invested. A total life experience, eye opening, breath taking and consciousness deepening. This is a course I will come back to again and repeat!

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!

As a result of taking this class (Skillful Means), I have newfound confidence about my ability to coach and a greater appreciation for the experience of being coached. The structure of breaking down the 26 Core Competencies into eight classes was perfect for honing my skills and learning to dance in the moment.
