    Your article points to the rich opportunity to observe, reflect on, and take authentic action moment by moment by moment in any encounter, be it coaching, with self, or other. To take advantage of the opportunity one must be truly present (alert, awake, open, receptive, in inquiry mode). It’s as dynamic as life is. It’s noticing when one is NOT those qualities. That is, as you describe, the moment of power that empowers us right then and there to switch our focus. As a coach or workshop leader it permits or allows, as you demonstrate, the precious communion we all long for to occur and which in turn enables or promotes deep learning to take place. I’ve discovered there’s little, if anything, more inspiring than for learners to get at a body and heart-mind level that we’re all companions, on the path, and that none of us is better or worse than anyone else. The demon of comparison lives prominently in DDT. Seeing it or any other experience of scarcity thinking (as you provide in the article) is an immediate coaching opportunity. Sharing our own relevant experience with clients is a great invitation to get or stay in TED. Thank you for this article.

    This is an important article and thank you for sharing your experience about how shifting awareness still continues to be part of the work in your life.

    My inner persecutor always points to how “I should be better than this with all the tools I have in my tool box” TED work, ICF Certification, Newfield Coach Training, 100’s and 100’s of hours of leadership training.

    I SHOULD KNOW…..or so my inner prosecutor says.

    Thank you for creating this work as an anchor to the wonderful world of empowerment.
