Event Description


We will cover ICF competencies of Agreement, Creating Awareness and Designing Actions with Planning & Accountability. Todays molecular biology tells us that emotions are transmitted through the blood to cells in every part of the body; neurology tells us that oxytocin and cortisol act in different ways to affect our bahavior; psychology tells us not merely about the unconscious, and also how we can use the unconscious positively.Ironically, a fair amount of this knowledge is embedded in ancient Hindu Buddhist scriptural wisdom, over 5000 years old. Some of my work is to link this wisdom to science through experiential evidence in coaching. I would like to talk to you about the Fourth State of Awareness, which I term Mindlessness, and how this links to modern science and how this is the essence of coaching. I practice, teach and research on this and you are welcome to be part of it.
