Crossing the Sacred ThresholdCoaching the soul through critical times11.45 am to 2 pm Friday 7 September 2012


with Donna ‘Rain’ Czupryna, MTP, PCC,
Transpersonal Coaching Psychologist
Do you want your coaching work to be more relevant for the needs of our time?

Both coaching as a profession, and our place within it, is growing up. As the profession matures and the world quickens, in what ways are coaches now called to work?

As we consider what is being asked for now, Transpersonal Coaching Psychologist, Donna Rain Czupryna, demonstrates how our own soulfulness, wisdom and interpersonal depth can meet the contemporary needs of our clients. In particular, she points to the critical moments during a coaching journey where our quality of presence and perspective brings transformational agency and meaning-making to the lives of our clients, offering ourselves as a sacred witness, elder, and “Threshold Guardian.”

Adopting a transpersonal stance and perspective in our work is increasingly relevant for 2012 and beyond: On one hand, to help address the wide-scale impact and affliction of “soul loss:” the disconnection from self, humanity and Earth. On the other hand, for riding at the crest of the wave in service to those who actively seek evolution throughstages of consciousness as well as accessing transcendent states of consciousness.

Creating a transpersonal field of presence can exquisitely meet the inner human longings for deep listening, connection, and being understood, particularly in the context of these consciousness shifts.

Activating a soulfully transpersonal orientation to our coaching work takes great skill and courage of our own. Alongside our professional coach-coachee engagement “role to role,” lays the artful, sensitive, and powerful dimension of non-separate being-ness, engaging openly “soul to soul.”

This draws not from our coaching toolkits and techniques, but from our own substance and willingness to be both vulnerable and surrendered unto our own path of growth. It also requires an informed set of principles and ability to recognize when our clients show signs of spiritual emergence beyond the scope of traditional coaching.

In this presentation, you will be invited to embody a level of coaching presence that opens the heart, invites ego transcendence, and calls forth your clients’ soul expression.

Further, this is an opportunity for you to:
  • Expand your capacity to hold coaching interactions that are daring and intimate; ones that truly respect and empower the mysterious soul, rich with its complexity and capacity for transformation. This sometimes calls for breaking the rules in coaching and asks us to be highly conscious of our rationales for doing so.
  •  Strengthen your skills in the ICF Core Competencies of: Creating Trust and Intimacy, Coaching Presence, Creating Awareness, and Powerful Questioning.
  •  Step up to the opportunity coaches have to provide eldership within a world in need of those who are capable of helping to engender a new era of psycho-spiritually mature men and women, and providing stewardship for our planet.
  • Gain guidance from a Coach Trainer who has evoked the development of hundreds of coaches and assists with ICF portfolio credentialing.
  • Further grasp what Transpersonal Coaching is and can do for you.
