Activist and Guide
I often find myself at a crossroads: between activism and soul.
My calling is to invite and help guide leaders to live a more undivided life.
I am grateful for those who join me to nurture their personal and professional integrity and to find the courage to act on it. This way of being together has the power to transform individuals, families, workplaces and communities.
Guiding retreats and workshops have taken me around the world: recently it's been China, Central America, the Caribbean, throughout Canada and the U.S:
at many holistic centers and on sailboats, surf waves, and hiking trails.
I was mentored by the activist and social thinker Parker J. Palmer in the Circles of Trust lineage.
I am active in the collaboration: The Center for Courage & Renewal.
As co-founder of the intentional community, RareBirds Housing Co-operative, I have a passion for environmental justice, exploring alternative living and a sustainable relationship to the land. I serve as an Ambassador for the Global Ecovillage Network and have run for political office.
I am an Anglican priest, a passionate activist, a poet, and for a decade, I managed a zoo!
Robyn and I live on the traditional and unceded territory of Secwepemcúĺecw (Kamloops, BC).
I offer individual coaching sessions as a soulful presence and guide. My approach is aligned with how I guide small groups: providing a sense of flow and rhythm, gentle facilitation, metaphors, stories, evocative imagery, poetry and reflections on what life is revealing. I provide a deep attentiveness and offer developed skills in the art of open questions and reflective storytelling.
I guide group sessions in leadership, personal and professional development and spiritual growth: online and in-person. I use the Circle of Trust approach, which is distinguished by principles and practices intended to create a process of shared exploration. It is a space where people can find trust to nurture their personal and professional integrity and to find the courage to act on it. This way of being together has the power to transform individuals, families, workplaces and communities.
