The Thing That Gets Us To The Thing

What We Believe

Combining the world’s most comprehensive map of human development, the structure and discipline of a martial arts lineage, the inclusion and transcendence of  knowledge and intuitive capacities and a proven track record for delivering lasting change – all within a space of deep care and uncompromising standards.


Our Developmental Method enables one to get underneath a coaching topic to see how a client has been approaching that realm up until now. There are usually some fundamental ‘Ah Ha’ moments as the client realizes, “No wonder I haven’t been able to sustain the change I’d hoped for.” Our work enables the client to more effectively identify and work with long-standing patterns while building the ability to move in new directions. Both occur at the same time. The grip of a past way of being is loosened as it is more consciously worked with while simultaneously creating new ways of moving forward.


In actively working in both of these areas (the ‘past-based’ way of being and the ‘future-based’ desired outcomes) unprecedented results are attained in very short periods of time. This method or way of working with a client is based on the principles of Subject-Object Theory in human development; by working with a client so that they explicitly and objectively come to see her/himself, the client is able to shift quite quickly and radically into healthier, more productive, deeply satisfying, and more expanded ways of being in their life. The ‘Ah Ha’ moments are powerful, but more poignant are the capabilities developed by clients to shift long-standing patterns that have felt immovable.
