Social Change Activists
“Do all you can with what you have, in the time you have, in the place you are.”
~ Nkosi Johnson, 11 year old South African Zulu AIDS Activist, died at 12
The world needs each of us, now more than ever, to unleash our dreams for a just and peaceful planet. Helping activists sustain ourselves physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually as we age is my passion.
You may have a lifetime of activism or are just now wondering how to channel your desire to be of use. Each of us has something to contribute. Activists are a treasure, a precious resource who bring vision and hope to some of the toughest issues of climate change, war, poverty, violence and human rights facing our planet.
Does the word activist conjure up an ultra-serious, all work and no play martyr? If you fit this image more than you’d like, partner with me as your coach to reconnect with your sense of aliveness. I work with you to cultivate sustainability rather than burnout. Bring healthy balance back into your life.
If guilt is your response to the word activist, I provide a non-judgmental place to clarify your priorities and redefine the way you contribute as your life changes. There is lots of room between all and nothing.
Learn skills and tools to manage stress, strengthen your resilience, easy practices to last a lifetime.
My activist clients come to coaching to:
- Keep hope alive and defy despair
- Occupy their values in all areas of their life
- Recover from burnout with renewed energy and perspectives
- Redefine their activism as they age
- Deal effectively with conflicts that arise working with others
- Do what makes them feel alive and creative
- Let loose their visions for a thriving planet
If you would like to find out more about coaching and if I am the right coach for you, please call or email me to schedule a free, no pressure consultation.
”In dealing with those who are undergoing great suffering, if you feel “burnout” setting in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself. The point is to have a long-term perspective.”
