I want to take a minute and give a shout out to an amazing woman.
Her name is Elise West. She can work magic with anyone around the world...
I don’t know what to call what she does or how to explain it. I do know how to share what my experience of it was...
I have worked with countless woman and mentors and coaches and facilitators over the last decade.
I’ve coached, mentored, and facilitated countless men and women over the last decade.
It is a special, sacred talent and state of being to completely avoid bringing ego into holding these types of roles...
Sometimes I get excited and see I’m “onto something” or on the “right path” with another and I might assume why they do or say something and what it means. Perhaps you can relate? Then, I ask my next question with that veil or filter... it can lead them down a train of thought they may or may not have gone down or it distracts them from their truth or it doesn’t and all is well...
Point is, it’s best to be how I experienced Elise. It’s best to be clear of ego-based facilitation while holding space for others’ processes, and it’s best as a receiver to find mentors who can hold this kind of space for you.
I can and do most of the time.
And I’m not always perfect.
I credit my training and experiences with Woman Within International and witnessing Judy Fox Rudin facilitating as the greatest influence on me of bias-free facilitation.
I don’t know how she got there, but in my opinion, Elise scores a 10 out of 10 in this category for my first session with her.
She presented inquiries in the most consistently unbiased, open, assumption-free way I’ve ever experienced leading me to go deeper with and heal more profoundly my inner little girl than I’ve ever experienced in a single session before. I saw more imagery and had more vivid memories come up than I’ve ever seen.
Mind you, I’ve been digging around inside myself super consistently and deeply for a decade now.
I highly recommend you book with her.
