I was in a small health food co-op the other day and on my way out I saw a local green directory titled Solstice.
I looked at the book, paused, walked out the door, then turned around walking back in and grabbing a copy for myself.
What happened as I walked out the door was an unrecognized thought came as a full-fledged association between sustainable, green living and the principles of the work I do.
What came to me was Clean Coaching is Green Coaching, ecologically sound for the heart and mind.
It seems to me that Clean Language and Symbolic Modeling have all the markers of an organic, sustainable, bio-diverse way of working with others.
All the reasons we may have for adding more organic, diverse foods to our diet and reducing our intake of additives and preservatives could be the same reasoning we use in choosing the form of therapy/coaching for OUR sustainable future.
Why take such care for your body if you are going to let others influence your mind through methods that have been robbed of their essence in a drive for conformity?
That’s like choosing those beautifully shaped, perfect looking, nutritionally cardboard vegetables you can get in most supermarkets over the strange and wonderful sustenance that comes from organic farms. Sometimes the vegetables are a bit weirdly shaped (we all have a bit of weird in us) but they are packed with micro-nutrients.
Green is an overarching term used in relation to the ideas of organic and ecological sustainability.
Green living is about how to reduce our impact on the planet, support natural systems, create a lifestyle that works with nature and does no long-term damage to the planet.
It’s meant to reduce our carbon footprint and encourage spending our money in ways that cast our vote for products that have a “green” quality.
Being Green contributes towards maintaining the ecological balance of our environment and preserving the planet with its natural systems and resources.
Green living is free of synthetic additives, preservatives, and unnatural influences. And is seen as good for self, good for other, and good for the planet.
Clean is an overarching term that we use to describe a philosophy in coaching and therapy that is designed to preserve and utilize the natural ecology of a person’s nature.
No additives, pesticides, or growth enhancers needed for good people to grow into who they want to be. Others do not need our inferences, suggestions, or strategies to grow.
As Clean facilitators we do not add our input into the client’s ecological system.
Organic and bio-diverse, we help create an environment for change by utilizing exactly what the client provides us.
Our intention is to utilize what naturally occurs in a client’s system, do no harm, and promote connection to the naturally occurring resources of the client.
This creates change that belongs to the person, not the coach or facilitator.
It is designed and developed by the client, for the client, and, in so being, is sustainable.
Mother nature knows best…and so do our clients.
