Personal Life Coaching and Mindfulness

Before becoming a holistic life coach, Karen had been occupied with utilizing mindfulness practices on her own personal holistic health journey. She has been mentored and captivated by the true essence of living in the moment for over 20 years, concentrating her efforts on maintaining this purview as a lifestyle (See “Mindfulness Course” page). She can attest to its usefulness by its relieving gift of helping her become courageous in being more ‘real’ with herself, and others. Karen also attributes her sense of wholeness to this work. For example, she has found it very helpful when she’s needing to attend to an uncomfortable situation in life, which could be integrating something new into her life, or walking through an embarrassing moment of any kind. Also, it surely is helpful in breaking habits that need to go. This consequently has been an aid in reducing her personal stress level.

Mindfulness practices are holistic at heart, and are something that can be taught, so that they are tools to be utilized on one’s own, in order to come back to the self, and in a certain sense, ‘hold it together.’ Nobody can take away the art of returning to our center, no matter what happens to us in life, or wherever, or in whatever condition we find ourselves in. Mindfulness aids in reducing stress by forming a creative process to help us find our way through. It also assists us in staying on track and away from allowing our past or anticipations of the future bog us down. Further, mindfulness can be seen as a nourishing tool that supports our efforts towards discovering a sense of freedom in anything we set our sights on achieving. Karen is aware that mindfulness has become an aid in our busy modern society.

Today, mindfulness is associated with wellness. is also a part of the healers and healing journey by helping us in the endeavor of coming back to ourselves, as said. Karen believes that mindfulness can lead to attending to the things that really matter, or that are essentially eternal. In other words, we can learn to build our true selfhood, and construct our life with what is abiding through connecting with the present moment.

Life coaching uses narrative and conversation as vehicles through which we tell our stories and recreate our stories. Successful people know they need others to achieve. We are meant to be individuals within a social structure. Both realities of the individual and the collective are necessary elements to help us actualize our sense of purpose and individual authenticity. If done mindfully, we are better able to listen to ourselves, and appreciate our version of our experience. We could also witness that we are heard, as well, which in turn may help us hear someone else more fully. The exchange of having our awareness expanded in this way may be felt as increasing our capacity to live life to the fullest.

From the point of view of narrative through the life coaching process, and mindfulness practices coming together, with the idea that new discoveries may be realized easier in a social setting, the concept of holistic life coaching begins to emerge. Life coaching is cast as a co-creative relationship between the coach and the client through which the clients’ truth is supported. Further, inquiries clients have are answered by the client through support and questions by the life coach. This process helps the client move forward in their lives with their aims through a process of self-determined shifts. See more on holistic life coaching in “Holistic Life Coaching FAQ’s” below.
