Coaching ~ For me, a natural progression
Almost without my knowing, for thirty years I've been quietly moving towards Personal Integration Coaching. It slowly sprang out of my music teaching; helping students find authenticity of expression in their voices and performance. And most especially working with another bridge; the bridge between the head and chest voices of the vocal registers and integrating them into one seamless voice. This bridge in vocal training is called PASSAGGIO. When I first heard the term, I was blown away by the elegance and beauty of the metaphor for finding spiritual balance.
The exquisite skill needed to navigate this turbulent vocal bridge, where the head and chest voices fight each other for control, perfectly correlates with the journey of Personal Integration where we try to unite all the seemingly conflicting elements of our being. Courage/fear, reluctance/enthusiasm, effort/effortlessness, strength/vulnerability are just some of the oppositional poles that we have to bridge to reach harmony and happiness. 

The Source of all Creativity
Working with my students and in my own journey as a musician, singer and writer, I became aware that artistic sensibilities--or any sensibilities in fact--don't emerge in a vacuum; they are connected to your ability to feel love, empathy and compassion, deal with your innermost feelings intelligently and integrate all of them into your life.
Although we'll explore mindfulness and guided meditation--and other modalities--to help you find balance, in the realm of personal growth, all teaching is really self-revelation. It is your soul working with the root sentience of your humanity, your ability to love and feel what’s real beyond your thoughts that will be your final guide. My job, as a Personal Integration Coach, is to articulate that vision for you until you can see it for yourself.  Click for more on PASSAGGIO and Personal Integration. 

I am working on a blog on Personal Integration which will also be called PASSAGGIO  so watch this space.
