Into the Bones // Digesting 2021 aliveness article power rest sensing vulnerability Dec 17, 2021

The end of the year invites us into our bones.

Whether it's landing our learnings in our bones, being grateful for life's blessings down to our marrow, feeling stripped to the bone by challenges, turning inward to nourish ourselves at the bone level, having the desire to curl up and rest our bones... May we listen and learn from the bones.

Here's a conversation Larissa and Nick had recently to land their learnings and sensing of 2021 in their bones.

Nick: Would you mind inviting me into the house that you speak from when you talk to this community in our newsletters? 

Larissa: Yeah,...

Do you understand the electrical nature of power and how it impacts your body when you pursue a calling or a big bid for power? Here are insights from a recent coaching conversation to help illuminate these dynamics and what's possible for you on your leadership path.

This is a gaping blindspot in most approaches to leadership, but it's necessary for sustainable, enlivening growth on our paths as leaders.

The Expertise of Experience aliveness article leadership power purpose transformation vulnerability wayfinding Feb 01, 2021

Some of the expertise that my clients value the most comes from my personal life and my healing journey from a near-fatal accident that happened 10 years ago on Jan 10, 2011.

 

This journey is inseparable from my work in the world, informing my work every day. 


In honor of my ten-year anniversary, here is a map I made — primarily of the physical layers of my healing journey.



Leaders consistently value the insights I learned through this extended terrain because I learned how to bring a system (my body) back from near-death to bright aliveness, and I know how...

NY Post Reviews Alchemical Leadership Program alchemical leadership article reviews Jun 03, 2020

Originally the retreat portion for the innaugural cohort of Alchemical Leadership was planned to be an 8-day community immersion near Joshua Tree with a 48-hour wilderness quest. Little did we know when we began on March 3, 2020 that COVID-19 would change those plans. Instead we designed custom at-home retreats for participants based on their unique situations, and it was a truly amazing experience.

The NY Post featured an article on the redesigned quest experience entitled “I went on a tech-free retreat while quarantined in my NYC apartment.” Read the full article here.

Why Wayfinding alchemical leadership aliveness article power transformation wayfinding Jun 11, 2019

"Navigating unmarked territory to find our way through the mystery is an inherent drive in the human spirit. This ability is the essence of the skill known as wayfinding. It is invaluable, in general, and especially now, as we face very real, high stakes globally."

We speak our values and the way we see life into existence through words, so names have great power. People often ask me why I chose Wayfinding—what it is, what it means to me, and why it's relevant for our times. This is my answer.

On My Rebirthday aliveness article power purpose transformation Dec 26, 2017

On the eve of Friday December 8, I threw a ReBirthday dance party ceremony to celebrate the end of my 7-year healing journey.

These years since I stood up suddenly, blacked out, and fell off a waterfall on Jan 10, 2011 have been a journey I could have never imagined. One that I’m forever grateful for because I grew into a greater version of myself—more alive, more true, more loving, more joyful, and more powerful. But, oh lordy, what it took to get here…. Read more...

Pursuing Professionalism and Rigor in Coaching aliveness article coaching Oct 25, 2017

Yvonne Thackray, founder of the good coach, and I had our first exploration in co-writing an in-depth piece on coaching together based on our collective experience in the field. It's a meaty piece with lots in it that's particularly relevant for coaches. 

Coaching as we understand it today is part of an evolutionary process in elevating human potential. As societies continue to realize that each individual has greater potential to live beyond their limitations, coaching has tapped into that growing awareness while filling a gap left by the decline of lifelong structured developmental...

  • What intuition is and how it relates to intellect,
  • How to develop intuitive capacities, and
  • How to leverage intuition for more effective leadership.

Listening is Foundational To Living Your Truth article coaching Apr 04, 2017

Listening is one of the most fundamental skills in a coach’s toolkit, and I’ve found that few things have advanced my coaching practice (and life) as much as continually refining my listening skills. While this may seem obvious or rudimentary, I’ve been blown away by the layers of subtlety that exist in the realm of listening. In my growth, I’ve learned to listen more deeply to myself, my clients, our shared space, the larger field, and how all of these realities interact.

In this article, I explore how deeper listening to our own truth can advance our ability to...
