The path of human flourishing, the Splendorful Path, is not easy. If it were, we’d live in Eden. We don’t.
Yet the more you walk this path, the more baggage you drop. The more you begin to radiate durable beauty. You see more life around you, and you are better able to create space where there had been no space for curiosity, learning, healing, and even laughter to enter. In short, you get life and a thriving community.
Splendorful Path coaches are not easy to find.
There are few opportunities for mentorship (developing skills, habits, capacities) in this space outside of some very, very hard knocks.
Practitioners are busy, and often only have one part of the solution: the business skills OR the activist skills OR the people skills. (They also tend to be chippy fighters!) Scholars, priests, coaches, and consultants often have a shallow view of what it takes to move a community towards the thriving community. They can only work with you for a short period of time and usually offer only one or two skills or master plans. Skills are not enough. You need the capacity to alchemize a group of angry people into a thriving community.
