on coaching

lo shu magic square turtle duoton by levelsi In today’s world, the effort of self-improvement has become a relentless pursuit, with many seeking guidance from various experts, traditions, and psychological disciplines. The distinction between two such disciplines — therapy and transformational or life coaching — is often blurred, leading to misconceptions about the true nature and potential of the latter. This collection of my writings invites you to explore a different approach to personal growth — one that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of psychotherapy and adopts the concepts of introspection, self-expression and spontaneity. In my articles on coaching I challenge the notion that we are defined solely by our pasts, urging you to recognize the power of the present and the future in shaping your authentic self. I caution you against the pitfalls of self-obsession and the perils of chronic rumination, where we become trapped in an endless cycle of checking with a diary, a counsel or a shaman, without tangible results, but wtth the false sense of hightened awareness that often accompanies inner work. Instead, I propose a phenomenological inquiry – a “letting be” attitude that allows us to hold multiple contradictory or paradoxical ideas about ourselves, establishing the process for continuous self-discovery.

I explore the concept of the “autotelic” experience, where individuals engage in activities for their own sake, with a sense of agency and interaction with the social world. Such an aim for psychological work emphasizes the importance of training spontaneity and intuition, revealing how these qualities can unlock new channels for cultivating one’s potential, finding meaning and fulfillment. As for the client coach relationship goes, this folio of post provides a important reminder, that not all who call themselves coaches are ready and capable to act in the best interest of their clients. And not everyone who wants to hire a coach is willing to be open, accountable, and action-oriented.

I invite you to approach this compilation with a spirit of exploration. To inspect the concepts of introspection, trained spontaneity, and autotelic experience check the sizing and fit to your path and ask youself if you would be interested in help incorporating them into your personal life, professional and artistic work.

Perspective on Psychological Work In this introduction to my perspective on psychological work, I challenge the need to be defined by our histories and suggest a future-oriented mindset and coaching as tools for empowerment and the pursuit of higher callings

What are Us? Treating our intuition, emotions, and somatic response as make-believe, we’re given scientific studies to provide us with a normal life-generating response. Only when we stop clutching to what others want from us, we can disengage from being normal and uncover our true values.

What is Introspection? What is introspection? The practice of skillful thought that illuminates our inner world. It helps us examine our beliefs, find our voice, and integrate our notions with outer world, allowing us to realize our personalities, and the difference between our self-perception and others’ views.

Why Coach Introspection? Introspection, while potentially yielding valuable self-knowledge, may also lead to self-obsession and chronic rumination. We have to penetrate the layers of appearances and develop the capacity to hold several contradictory or paradoxical ideas about ourselves in our minds at the same time.

Who is a Good Coach? Assuming clients possess emotional integration and are creating the life they desire, a coach should never impose their own truths. Good coaches prioritise intuition, self-expression, and set intrinsic, joy-filled goals while aligning with clients’ essence and remaining supportive observers.

Beyond Introspection Obtained through an autotelic process, emotional intelligence and empathy become essential in our times. A trained mind is capable of neglecting facts in favor of inception, liberating our intellect, transporting us from a state of confusion and obscurity to a state of abundance and certitude
