Ever since happiness heard your name,he has been running through the streettrying to find you.In fact, god himself came to my door,so sweetly asking for your address – wanting the warmth of your hearts fire.-Hafiz


About you

About you…

  • What brings you here?

  • What are you most wanting from this program?


Day 1

Day 1

  • Absence of you and Coaching

  • What does “absence of you” mean?

  • Core Dynamics of Common Problems (overview)

  • Philosophy and Illusions

  • Dynamics 1 – 6 (out of 12)

  • Practice Identifying Operating Dynamics


Day 2

Day 2

  • Absence of you and Masterful Coaching

  • Dynamics 7 – 12 (out of 12)

  • More Practice Identifying Operating Dynamics

  • Coaching techniques for resolving Core Dynamics

  • Completion conversation


Coaching and absence of you

Coaching and Absence of You

  • Coaching = Helping an individual (or team) produce a desired result by co-creating solutions and awareness

  • Great People Make Great Coaches

  • Greatness = a state of being easily experienced when common illusions are absent

  • Absence of you = absence of common illusions


Coaching continued

Coaching Continued

  • Adding things: concepts, solutions, clarity, accountability

  • Removing things (absence of…): limiting beliefs, assumptions, environmental blocks, conflicting intentions


Hi end coaching

Hi-End Coaching…

  • Understands the predictable nature of situations, people

  • Responds to the underlying dynamic

  • If you don't recognize what's really going on, you'll be coaching symptoms or on the surface

  • Answers the question: What is REALLY going on here?


Conflicting intensions

Conflicting Intensions

  • Emotionally healthy, well-functioning individuals carry out their intentions unless there is a dynamic that conflicts with the stated desire.

  • This is an extremely common situation and a natural part of the coaching conversation.

  • In this program we will show you how to listen for and resolve these dynamics with your clients (and yourself)

Absence of you

Absence Of You

Getting the sense of yourself from the essential nature of what you areand not from anything other than that.


Common notions

Common notions…

about the state of Absence Of?

  • This kind of experience is only for saints and monks—not for us ordinary types!

  • It takes lifetimes of meditation and austerities

  • Resignation and Cynicism

  • Our “notions” of what we think would be living in a state of Absence Of

  • The expectation that Absence of State is going to be “flashy”

  • Thinking we’re there—thoughts of it are NOT it

  • Being so attached to the process of getting to it that we never arrive


Why live in a state of absence of

Why live in a state of Absence Of?

  • Always trust and act on your intuition

  • Freedom from the past and future

  • Total presence – living in the moment

  • Free of judgments

  • Freed from the grip of emotion

  • Capacity to feel anything and everything

  • Complete self-sufficiency/independence


The state of absence of

The state of absence of…

Discussion: What would it be like to live (and coach) from this place?


The core dynamics of common problems

The Core Dynamics of Common Problems

  • The Core Dynamics = the language of problems

  • Core = The central or innermost part

  • Dynamic = of or relating to energy

  • Provide language for uncovering conflicting intentions.


Demonstration

Demonstration

  • Share a “problem” and we’ll find the dynamics at play


Practice

Practice

  • Triad: Share a “problem” and find the dynamics at play


The dynamic lunch

The Dynamic Lunch

  • Lunch break assignment: have lunch in a group of 3 or 4. Continue to talk about the “problems” in your life and practice identifying the dynamics at play


Welcome back

Problems and suffering in human life occur when we lose the sense of being whole.

Welcome Back

Each fundamental way in which the sense of being whole is lost leads to an illusion of separateness


The illusions of separateness

The Illusions of separateness

  • *Depression

  • Not trusting and acting on your intuition

  • Being judgmental

  • Getting absorbed in the past or future

  • Becoming lost to the grip of emotion

    * Diagnosed behaviors must be handled by a licensed therapist


Behaviors overly identified with objects

  • Creating expectations of having it “my way”

  • Becoming frustrated when things don’t happen the way we think that they should

  • Being overwhelmed by positive things and overly disappointed by negative things


Core dynamics details

Core Dynamics Details

  • We call these illusions the “core dynamics of common problems”

  • They are based on conditioning and become our default “operating system”

  • They are always at conflict with what we truly desire

  • Next we will work with each of the 12 in detail.


1 resisting feeling things fully

1) Resisting Feeling Things Fully

Staying away from situations in order avoid feeling a particular way.

  • Based on experiences of being overwhelmed by intense feelings when we were particularly vulnerable or delicate

  • In an attempt to avoid the experience of such intense overwhelming feelings, we make an inner decision to resist feeling things fully.

  • We as if blame the process of feeling things for the experience of being overwhelmed.

  • This dynamic is characterized by any activity that involves the avoidance of feeling things fully.

  • This dynamic is based on the illusion that if you feel it fully, you will be destroyed.


1 resisting feeling things fully1

1) Resisting Feeling Things Fully

When this dynamic is absent you feel:

I feel anything and everything without the fear of being overwhelmed.

  • Discussion: What are some common life situations based on this dynamic?

  • Demonstration

  • Practice


2 ignoring your intuition

2) Ignoring your intuition

Denying your inner knowing in order to avoid possibly painful consequences in the short term.

  • Caused by being punished for acting on your inner knowing/intuition

  • We were overwhelmed by the punishment

  • This is the parental game called “Let control the kids through emotional manipulation.”

  • This dynamic is about avoidance of negative or painful consequences of acting on your intuition. It is a compensation for not feel fully.

  • This dynamic is based on the illusion that if you act on your intuition that you won’t be able to face the consequences.


Welcome

All people are offered help by their Intuition, but most pick themselves up and escape as fast as possible!

Winston Churchill


2 ignoring your intuition1

2) Ignoring Your Intuition

When this dynamic is absent you feel:

I completely trust my intuition and I always act on it

  • Discussion: What are some common life situations based on this dynamic?

  • Demonstration

  • Practice


3 being judgmental

3) Being Judgmental

To avoid dealing with your own issues

  • We judge something in order to create an illusion of separateness from it, in order to distance ourselves from it.

  • There is something that is a part of ourselves that we don’t want to acknowledge and embrace.

  • If there was no charge inside of us about it then we would be neutral.

  • By creating the illusion of separateness through judging people, things or even parts of ourselves, we break down the experience of Wholeness and create an illusion that we are isolated and separate from the rest of the world.

  • This dynamic is based on the habit of avoiding the issues that we really need to address and resolve within ourselves and the illusion that we can’t.


3 being judgmental1

3) Being Judgmental

When this dynamic is absent you feel:

Everything I experience is a part of me. I acknowledge it, embrace it and value from it.

  • Discussion: What are some common life situations based on this dynamic?

  • Demonstration

  • Practice


4 avoiding the present

4) Avoiding the present

Getting lost in stories of the past or future

  • When this dynamic is present we tend to get lost to the stories that we make up about our experiences.

  • The experiences are intrinsically meaningless.

  • Often we can become so absorbed in or identified with our stories that we begin to feel that they are real. We live inside them.

  • We make ourselves the victims not of what happened to us but to the stories that we become dedicated to about the events.

  • This dynamic is based on the habit of avoidingbeing present and the illusion or fear that being present will be difficult.


4 avoiding the present1

4) Avoiding the present

Expressions of this Dynamic:

  • Getting lost to the grip of emotion

  • Getting absorbed in stories about the past and/or future

  • Projecting possible negative outcomes on to the future

  • Getting lost to addictive behaviors

  • Having a database of unresolved emotions

    When this dynamic is absent you feel:

  • I experience emotions fully but without getting lost to them

  • I live in the wonder and delight of uncertainty

  • I easily face and fully feel anything from the past

Discussion: How does “Absence of You” lead to masterful coaching?


5 looking for yourself where you are not

5) Looking for yourself where you are not

Seeking validation from accomplishments. - Seeking the approval of others. - Defining yourself through things or roles.

  • Subject – Object – Process of Experiencing

11 manufacturing interpretations

11) Manufacturing Interpretations

Creating doubt by getting overly absorbed in trying to explain something

  • We habitually manufacture interpretations of our experiences. It’s a very human thing to do.

  • However, everyone’s interpretations will be different, so the interpretations only exist in your head.

  • We want to understand it so we try to figure it out.

  • Much later you might say, “Oh! Now I see why that happened.”

  • This dynamic is based on the illusion that everything is not perfect.

Core dynamics coaching

Core Dynamics Coaching

  • To be effective in coaching a client when you recognize that one or more core dynamic is present is to help your client re-establish a basic sense of wholeness, centeredness, integration.

  • Simply understanding how the sense of being integrated and whole has been lost begins to restore it.

  • However there are specific things that can be done to shift or redirect the client’s energy and attention to re-establish the sense of wholeness.


Core dynamics coaching1

Core Dynamics Coaching

  • Resisting Feeling Fully

    • Help the client learn to feel things more fully and improve there access to their innate capacity to feel.

  • Looking for Yourself Were You Are Not

    • Support the client in getting their sense of self simply from the essence of who they really are.

  • Trying to Force an Outcome

    • Support the client in learning to live in the wonder and delight of uncertainty and see the perfection in everything just the way it is.


Specific coaching techniques

Specific Coaching Techniques

  • Waiting

  • Feeling into the core of the feeling

  • Practice feeling things fully

  • Shifting to neutral/unplug the power

  • Make the decision to always act on your intuition

  • Make the decision to see the world as a mirror

  • Make the decision to notice the habit of looking outside yourself for completion


Waiting

Waiting

  • It may be necessary to simply be with the discomfort of not knowing for some time.

  • The answer will come when it is time for it to come and it will come as a certainty that has no charge to it.

  • Practice being aware that there is a gap between your experiences and your responses to them.

  • Notice whether you are reacting automatically or whether you are at choice and cultivate being at choice in how you respond.

  • If there is any doubt in the best way to respond, wait!


Feeling into the core of the feeling

Feeling into the core of the feeling

  • When you are lost to an emotion

  • Notice that what you are feeling is the energy of the emotion in your body

  • Allow yourself to feel right into the core of the most intense part of the energy of the emotion

  • If there is more than one layer of feeling there, find the core of the energy of each feeling and feel down into it

  • Mastering this ability allows you to quickly come out of the grip of emotion


Practice feeling things fully

Practice feeling things fully

  • Notice when one of the dynamics based on not feeling fully is operating in your life

  • Notice what it is that you have been avoiding feeling and allow yourself to start feeling it

  • Notice the fear of being overwhelmed

  • Notice that feeling things fully doesn’t kill you and that you actually have a much greater capacity to feel than you thought you did

  • You have just had a habit of keeping a lid on accessing that capacity


Practicing unplugging the power

Practicing unplugging the power

  • Notice the difference between reacting and responding

  • Decide to master of these two steps:

    • Be aware of every conditioned reaction as it is beginning to arise in your awareness

    • Unplug the power/ shift to neutral

      • Disallow the thought to continue to receive any energy/power.

      • You are so used to them being present that you won’t notice without choosing to pay attention.

      • Thinking that you don’t have control over which ones you allow to be present is a part of your conditioning.


Neutrality is the most powerful dismantler of negativity

Neutrality is the most powerful dismantler of negativity


Decide to always act on your intuition

Decide to always act on your intuition

  • Try it and you will find that you can fully feel the feelings that come up without being overwhelmed

  • Notice that the fear is that someone may get upset with you

  • Do you really want to be manipulated by the intense expression of emotion?

  • Do you want to continue to participate as if you were still five years old?


Make the decision to see the world as a mirror

Make the decision to see the world as a mirror

  • Practice noticing the process of judging others and/or judging yourself

  • Adopt an attitude of looking inside yourself for the charge when you find yourself judging

  • Practice acknowledging and embracing the charge in yourself related to the issue that you are judging

  • Think of the other person as giving you the gift of being the mirror so you can see those parts of you that you have been avoiding that need some attention


Make the decision to become aware of the habit of looking outside yourself for completion

Make the decision to become aware of the habit of looking outside yourself for completion

  • Practice noticing the habit of looking outside yourself for love, respect, acknowledgment, appreciation, sense of completion, etc.

  • Then notice the feeling that is driving this looking outside.

  • Feel it fully.
