“There is nothing to fear in the act of beginning. More often than not it knows the journey ahead better than we ever could. Perhaps the art of harvesting the secret riches of our lives is best achieved when we place profound trust in the act of beginning. Risk might be our greatest ally.
To live a truly creative life, we always need to cast a critical look at where we presently are, attempting always to discern where we have become stagnant and where a new beginning might be ripening.

There can be no growth if we do not remain open and vulnerable to what is new and different.
I have never seen anyone take a risk for growth that was not rewarded a thousand times over.”

John O’Donohue – To Bless the Space Between Us

Change, whether catapulted upon us or initiated by choice, involves a cycle coming to an end, followed by a period of reflection and letting go. This period, also called transition, eventually leads to meaningful insights, clarity, and the renewed energy to launch a new chapter.

There’s a rhythm to change.

How we handle the process of endings and new beginnings is unique to each of us. Sometimes the dance goes two steps forward and other times one step backward.

What brought you here?

You may be in the midst of reinventing your life or career or birthing a new project.

You may be coping with unexpected change and trying to make sense of it all.

Either way, you’re standing at the edge of a road and have no idea where it leads to or how to chart your course.

You’re feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and tired.

You don’t have to do this alone.

I know because I’ve been down that road many times. I am no stranger to change and transition. My life has evolved along with detours, U-turns, and small miracles.

I believe there are three elements that support our journey in times of uncertainty and change:

  • The willingness to pause and be present with whatever is going on, no matter how challenging it may be,
  • The ability to extend loving kindness to ourselves, and
  • The courage to let go of what does not serve our life anymore.

Endings and new beginnings ask for our presence, self-compassion, and courage.

Take the first step and let’s get together for your initial Clarity Coaching session.

During the session, I’ll ask you a set of questions that will help you identify what you need to gain some sense of peace and clarity even as you stand in the midst of uncertainty.

We’ll also discuss what the best way forward is for you. You may decide to try one of my courses, join the Monthly Gatherings, or continue with individual coaching. Or, you may decide to sit with your insights gained from our session and see what manifests for you.

You can use the form below to book your Clarity Coaching session.
The appointment will be one hour long and we’ll meet via Zoom video.

Clarity Coaching Session $95

“Slowly a vision began to emerge — not only for my site — but for my work going forward. It was quite magical and once we began to gain traction … the process was actually fun! Together we brought order out of chaos and the result was so much better than I could have ever imagined.” T.K.

“At the beginning, I was skeptical about working with a life coach. As we moved along, I quickly came to understand that what she had to offer me was a gift.. a very special one at that. Yota has a way of transcending the mundane, everyday “stuff” and bringing into view what is truly important clearly and concisely. We worked through some very tough personal transition issues and things became clear for me through seasonal examples. Key concepts were presented in a very easy, non-threatening way and I was able to incorporate strategies that made my daily life a lot more manageable. ” C.L.
