Does life seem to be playing tricks on you?
You thought you wanted success…. You thought you had a dream….
But then something changed, and now you’re wondering what you’re doing – and why.
Do these situations sound familiar?
You feel disconnected. You’re coping, but you’re sick of feeling overwhelmed. There’s little flow in your life, and you don’t know how to sort things out. How can you find the time and space to stop and think about what you want when you’ve got so much going on?
You’ve been on autopilot for too long, chasing a dream that no longer has meaning for you. Changing course feels scary, but the thought of staying where you are feels worse. Is it possible to rediscover the vitality and passion you used to have – without completely changing your lifestyle?
The stress levels in your life have been way too high for way too long. You’re well aware of the impact stress has on your emotions and your health, and you hate what it does to your relationships. But short of quitting your job, locking your kids up till they’re adults, and moving to an ashram, what can you do?
You’re stuck. You yearn for something more – but you don’t know what it is, and you don’t know how to find it. Somewhere along the way you lost focus, lost your dream. You want – and need – to start over again. How can you connect with what you’re truly meant to be doing – and turn your dream into reality?
You’d like to be yourself with the people you love. It would be wonderful to feel safe enough to show up as who you are, without needing to wear masks. You’re both drawn to and terrified by the possibility of deeper emotional connection with those you care for. How can you build the self-confidence you need to express the love and caring you feel?
What would it be like to appreciate your challenges, instead of feeling overwhelmed by them?
My clients have experienced a mix of love, fulfilment, success, and supportive relationships at various times in their life – and have somehow lost their footing.
And they’re seeing that a good life truly isn’t measured by money and possessions. They’re redefining success – and seeing that relationships, shared love, and a healthy, positive outlook is where true happiness lies.
They know in the bottom of their hearts that there’s a better, more rewarding way to be in their lives, to share their lives with others – even if it seems painfully distant right now.
When you engage fully with your life, your challenges become stepping-stones instead of obstacles. Just as an athlete relishes the exertion of going for the gold, or a musician appreciates the effort of mastering a difficult piece, you can experience challenges as opportunities to stretch and grow.
If this sounds intriguing, there are a number of things you can do to explore my work further. Read on, and see which avenue of activity best suits you.

How Seishindo Life Coaching works
As Westerners, we try to solve our problems by seeking counsel and advice, whether with friends, through therapy, or with a life coach.
In Asia, people are more likely to meditate on their challenges and perform practices to help them wake up to their own wisdom.
Seishindo combines the best of Eastern and Western traditions.
We focus on four things.
It’s counter-intuitive, but when you’re feeling stuck, stressed, or in the midst of overwhelm, slowing down gives you the space you need to achieve insights, find new passion, and accomplish your goals..
Breathing and experiencing your whole self
Paying attention to your breathing and posture creates an entirely new awareness of your presence – the energetic message you communicate to others and to yourself. Your non-verbal behavior plays a subtle yet powerful role in how you’re perceived – and how you feel. Gentle, non-strenuous, meditative physical and breathing practices enable you to return home to your body and inhabit it fully, in ways you may not have experienced since you were a child.
Life is filled with paradox – but at first glance paradox seems irrational. When you go deeper inside yourself, you can stop resisting what is. As you embrace paradox and accept not knowing, you rediscover your intuition. And you’ll find the connection you yearn for – with yourself, with others, and with your dreams.
Feeling and appreciating the emotional experience of others
Emotion drives behavior, and invariably overrides rational thinking. Living and working well with others requires knowing how they feel, more so than knowing what they think. You need to understand the emotional landscape of your significant others, so you can interact with them in a way that matches their values, beliefs, hopes, and fears.
You’ve probably tried some of this in the past.
But you need to perform all four actions together before the magic can begin to manifest.
When you slow down, breathe into the power of your whole self, and embrace the paradoxes life presents – you’ll operate from a place of deep, intuitive power. And as you begin to do small things differently, you’ll start to notice that success is within your grasp.
You’ll have a deep appreciation for who you are, instead of trying to become someone different.
