Resources

The following resources are available here in addition to the reflections on my blog here. I also write about themes of healing and transformation on my blog at A Kintsugi Life, which may be of interest to you.

Reiki

Reiki and the dying (PDF, 378KB) is a guide that discusses the ways that Reiki can benefit those who are dying, as well as their loved ones and caregivers. This guide is written for Reiki practitioners, but it would also be helpful to anyone who may be in the place of deciding whether Reiki would be helpful to loved ones who are dealing with end-of-life situations.

Coaching

Research Paper: The Use of the Open Mind Model to Enhance the Coaching Experience is the research paper that I wrote during my life coaching training program. This paper is about using the Open Mind model to tailor the coaching experience to best meet individual clients’ needs based on the way they process information consciously, subconsciously, and unconsciously.

Coaching Power Tool: Curiosity vs. Judgment is a power tool that I created during my life coaching training that is designed to help clients compare two opposing states of being, in this case curiosity and judgment, in a way that helps them move into more helpful ways of interacting with the world.

Coaching Model: Geode Coaching is a model for the coaching process that I developed and wrote during my life coaching training. It is designed to help clients break through their outer defenses to find the beauty and answers that they already hold within.
