Hello, Magnificent Coaches!

The second K-Cast for August finds me joined in conversation
with Almah LaVon Rice, the founder of Owl Dance and Moon:
Creativity Coaching. You can learn more about
Almah and her coaching practice here.

She coined "eco-ecstatic creativity coaching" to describe the
coaching techniques she uses to help clients establish playful,
joyous rapport with the creative forces of Nature and the worlds

Here are her questions:

1. How is the coach like an artist?

2. How do you spark clients' creativity and ability to generate
options when they're feeling blocked, stuck, and stumped?

3. How do you balance innocence (spontaneity, creativity,
curiosity, no "agenda") and mastery (experience, credentials,
knowledge) as a coach? How can you be fresh and daring ...and be
confident about the value you're offering?

4. How do you "co-create" with Spirit (or allow yourself to be a
creative channel) in your coaching sessions?

5. What is coaching's role in composing a new world? How can
coaching set the stage for positive, visionary social/ecological

Absolutely marvelous questions; the answers take you deep within
to explore the creative being within. Almah and I invite you to
listen in, and enjoy!

Love and Great Joy,

How Spiritual Alignment Increases Productivity

Hello, Magnificent Coaches!

You may have noticed that there were no K-Casts during the month of July - our focus was on the Upgrade Your Business Now consultations. We're all pleased with the major breakthroughs experienced by many of our participants - it was phenomenal to share in them!

Now, we're returning to the regular K-Cast schedule. My guest for this first K-Cast of August is Jamie Durner, BodyMind Coach. She works with her clients using a a bodymind centered approach to help you discover healing and harmony from the inside out. Interested in learning more? You can visit her Web site at:

She came to me to explore the connection between alignment and productivity. Here are the questions we used as the foundation for our conversation:

1. How can you use the number of clients in your practice to give you clues in terms of overall alignment with your truth?

2. How does the balance between doing and being as a coach allow for productivity to show up in abundance?

3. What's the difference between staying positive and focusing on the 98% that's working and being open to the cues from the BodyMind in relation to where your practice is in terms of productivity and success?

4. What are the steps or pieces of information a coach needs to define the optimal level of productivity?

5. What are the key elements I need (or a coach needs) to tap into discovering these answers?

I believe you'll be surprised by many of my answers, but I know you'll find the conversation engaging and enlightening.

Love and Great Joy,
