Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The very best wishes for an ‘uplifting’ and wonderful Christmas and New Year through all the changes we are being offered at this time.

The trick to remember that whenever there is upheaval that is going on in our lives, is not to focus on the drama of the situation, easier said than done when partner is having an affair, economic recession, redundancy, artic winds of -50c, burst water mains, but ask yourselves, “What is the opportunity that is being shown to me right now?”

Unfortunately, global changes are in process and as old belief systems want to cling onto old structures, pain ensues. If we want new structures, we will need new beliefs. The first step maybe to ‘accept’ the situation as ‘is’ before moving on to the opportunities being offered to you/us right now.

The opposite of war (control) isn’t peace, but it could be ‘acceptance’ (let go), which then ascends to Peace. Teilhard de Chardin the great Jesuit geologist wrote “What converges ascends” (Brooks, 2010). Where the two opposites meet at the halfway point between them (War >Neutral< Accept), has a neutralising effect and therefore creating a new possibility to ascend to, such as Peace.

Model Adapted for Peace (Brooks, 2022)

 “This structural model used in Psychosynthesis again seems a useful framework for understanding how the releasing of blockages and redirecting the flow of energy can lead to the achievement of goals and positive outcomes.” (Brooks, 2010).

Testimonial – Wellbeing Coaching

“Johnathan helped me through a really dark time in my life. His expertise, unique perspectives and personalisation of the course was crucial for my neurodiverse brain to process and understand the material and dissolve some of the chaos and fear. I would really recommend Spirit Bear Coaching, he had the patience and compassion to bear with me even to the point of rescheduling when a breakdown made me miss my appointment time even though the business thing to do would be to ask for more money. 

Thank you for helping me” ~ NA

Testimonial – Greater Awareness of Myself

Man Thinking Sunset

“I signed up for career coaching to gain a greater awareness of the roles that suited my skills and knowledge… but it actually gave me a whole lot more.

I found Johnathan easy to talk to and with the varied activities in the sessions trigger thought provoking conversations that enabled me to identify what I really value in myself and how I can use them and allow me to develop in my current and prospective roles.

It gave me clarity and showed me what is important to me and what makes me tick as an employee, what gives me personal satisfaction and why. With careful questioning and probing Johnathan helped me discover these. The approach that Johnathan comes with gives a fresh approach. At times it was challenging but enjoyable!”

I would recommend giving it a go to anyone.” – RB
