Have You Found Your FLOW in Your Work?

Mary is standing on the terrace taking in the fresh air looking on as the small but joyful crowd is sipping expensive wine and munching on premium aged cheese in the lounge. This is the end of the board retreat she produced and headlined. They loved it, and she is glowing! Actually she looks like she is hovering 2 inch above the floor!

Mary is on the couch in my office and we are...

Lucid Dreaming

Suzanne felt the fear again as the humongous lumps of cold rocks were about the crush her. She was back in her nightmare where meteors were charging at her and she was scared to her bones.
 
Only this time she was in a lucid dream; in a safe trance state in my office on the couch.  She saw it exactly as in her nightmares: Earth is in a distance, she is a lot larger than in real life, but these rocks are way bigger than her.  The meteors are speeding towards

The Paradox of Love

The Paradox of Love

“I see so much potential in our marriage. I wish my wife would see it too and join me making our marriage better”, my client Alex told me. Through our work together, Alex has seen fast changes in his personality; he’s less volatile and less stressed after only a few sessions.
 
Today, he is concerned that his wife won’t follow his lead, and his rapid personal growth will lead to them growing apart, not growing closer.   
 
As a successful writer and father of three, he loves his wife yet...

What's shifted?

On a sunny California day, in the summer of 1981 Kathleen nearly broke the neck of a five year old boy. It was a backyard bbq, and Kathleen had been skipping on the side of the pool when she decided to jump in. She landed on a little boy who immediately stopped moving. 

People screamed and a man jumped in the pool and pulled the little boy to safety. Kathleen, terrified, crawled out of the pool and ran to her father looking for comfort. But her father grabbed her by the shoulders and berated her ceaselessly injecting his own personal demons...

Your Purpose is Your Journey

Your Purpose is Your Journey

What is that within your that the world needs? Have you ever asked that question? Is this question relevant to you? Do you have a purpose? Do you want one? Do you need one? At Purpose&Play we think so. In our co-creative coaching sessions we are connecting our clients with their purpose in life. 

A purpose is not a goal but a journey. We believe that goals are illusory and only the journey is real. Having a purpose nevertheless helps with goal-setting and prioritizing. Helps to...

Come Up for Air!

We are in a trance state growing up. Before age 7 our brain works on a different frequency than in our adult life and what we experience goes straight onto “The Tape” - our recording of What Life Is. In adulthood most of the time we just play and re-play The Tape. 

Unresolved issues from childhood can create situations when we feel we cannot connect. Cannot connect to ourselves, cannot connect to others or to the moment. In these situation most of the time we cannot even tell what is wrong or why. We don’t know why we don’t know why!

With co-creative meditation you can...

Balanced Inner World

If you have experienced how destructive your inner voices can be then you can imagine how powerful allies they could be - if only they were on your side! Our voices in our mind are there for a reason. They are our sub-personalities; Jungian archetypes with important messages. They want to support us but if they are not heard out they can be disturbing. We all have developed ways of arguing with the voices every day. Now we know that does not help.

Instead of arguing we can find a way to make peace with them by using co-creative meditation. This technique works with guided relaxation where we listen to your inner voices one by one by accessing the...

Who's in Charge?

Who's in Charge?

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. She was succeeding as an artist in her craft, earning recognition from all over the world. Yet, on the inside she was scared. Events that scarred her during her childhood still haunted her and were affecting her life. She was alienating her business and romantic relationships by reacting to them with the rage of the child who had been beaten, and angry and sad that no one had defended her.

But that had happened in the past, and this was the present. If her mother attempted to beat her now, she wouldn’t be as afraid as when she was a child, since she would now have the ability as an adult to defend herself 

The first step for her, and anyone else with this dilemma, is to realise...
