Coaching

If you are interested in my coaching services or my leadership for a spiritual life retreat you can send an email to florence@florencebrooks.com.

My Coaching services: My approach to coaching is rooted in my background in spiritual direction, Resilient Leadership Coaching, training as an educator and my ongoing study of Bowen Family Systems Theory. Rather than being agenda driven, what I do can be described as guided listening. I listen for what’s important to you and provide support in helping you discern and clarify your thinking, set goals and increase your capacity for navigating challenges at work and home. I work with people from a variety of backgrounds, belief systems, and at different stages in life’s journey. Common themes that emerge in the work I do include: parenting, aging parents, finding meaning and purpose, transitions, work life issues, leadership, time management, grief and loss, and planning.

Group and Retreat offerings include:

Radical Hospitality – Based on Amy Oden’s book, God’s Welcome, this retreat focuses on the discipline of hospitality and developing a spirit of welcome. We’ll look at building community and creating meaningful connections.

Holy Places – In this retreat we’ll spend time thinking and talking about those places where you’ve experienced God’s presence and grace. You’ll build an awareness of God’s leading and at the same time develop your own spiritual geography.

Thinking and Talking about Time – This retreat explores time, what steals your time, what shapes your time, what gives time meaning.

Let’s Play – This retreat offering explores play as a spiritual discipline. We’ll have fun together and provide time and space for individuals to reflect and discuss with others on how to nurture the spirit of joy in one’s life.

All of the retreat offerings can be expanded or abbreviated to allow for an overnight experience or a mini 1 to 1.5 hour session with interested persons.
