My personal recommendation is that early on, you read Episode One of “How Life Works–or at least it Can!” (20 min. read time).[LINK] This will give you a flavor of the writing style and content you can expect on this Website. It will also give you the basic context and vocabulary that are essential to further discussion together via posts and comments.
3 WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
- “Walk the Talk” blog via posts, comments and responses on this website. I also plan to establish a mediated public forum for participants
- Securely protected and mediated text/voice/video discussions (via DISCORD app) at no cost for participation or for the required app. This will eventually be the primary channel of communication for all website activities. For now, it is only being used between the Coach and individual Clients. I will announce any plans for any other uses as they begin to occur.
- Gives option of simultaneous private discussions
- Between individual or multiple participants and/or Coach.
- Fee-based Individual and (eventually) Group Coaching by video call
The main purpose of the site’s blog (“Walking the Talk“) is to present the manual and methodology in more “bite-sized” chunks over time. The goal is to generate comments and responses that will help shape additional ways to explain and broaden the material. In this sense, participants become virtual co-creators in further developing the manual’s scope and substance over time.
COACHING FOR YOURSELF
A great deal of information is available to help in exploring whether you would like to pursue individual coaching. These include primarily
- THE MANUAL,
- THE COACH,
- WHO CAN BENEFIT
- VERBATIM SAMPLE TEXTS of actual coaching sessions are also available.
REMAINING WEBSITE SECTIONS
- ADMIN STUFF gives you things like fees and services and the registration process.
- TOOL KIT includes a GLOSSARY OF USEFUL NOTIONS, along with specific strategies and techniques for managing ourselves in the face of strong emotion.
- INSPIRATION access to this site’s accompanying Pinterest Boards. It also includes two poems: the well know and ever comforting “Desiderata”, and my own “Desiderata of Emotional Armageddons (Including Grief)”.
