To get to what life coaching really is, let’s begin at the beginning. As in, what is coaching? Well, think football. Basketball. Golf. The Olympics.

Want to Jack Up Your Progress? Then Take Note: The Fuel is This Version of Self-Love.

On Self-Love - Life Coach Teresa Young

Gregg Braden’s 15 Keys to Conscious Creation

Gregg Braden's 15 Keys to Conscious Creation - Life Coaching with Teresa Young

My explorer friends Ricardo Accorsi and Linda Parker introduced me to the wild work of Gregg Braden, and I took these notes at the end of 2014. I was reflecting on my year while listening to the last chapter of his audiobook, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief.
