Want a goal of yours to be in my PhD study?

by Wendy Down on January 26, 2018

Hey, you out there?

In case you’ve forgotten what I look like!

I hope you are doing well since we last chatted here.  I’m writing because I’d love to reconnect with you again. And to help you reach a goal (or intention) that’s important to you right now.

But first, how have you been?  What’s new?

On my end, the short answer is I’ve been immersed in my PhD studies (in Integrative Medicine) and understanding even more clearly the science that explains how we can shape our lives, our responses to life and even our physical bodies.  

So lately my private coaching sessions have been brimming with exhilarating conversations, lighter ‘techniques’ and greater certainty than ever that the specifics of our lives can shift quickly, playfully and easily.

And now I’m ready to bring all of that to a larger group (you!) and to test it with a research study upon which my PhD success or failure will depend.

(no pressure there…)

I’ve been readying myself for this for awhile and today, I’m letting you know I’d love for you to take part.  And how.

As background… to complete my degree I’m required to complete a research study.   After months of tossing around possible ideas, I’ve decided to make my study super simple.

In a nutshell, the purpose of Life Coaching is to close a gap between where a person is on a particular subject and where he or she wants to be.

And so I’m going to measure how reliably and effectively I do that with people.

During my 20 years as a Life Coach, I’ve accumulated a diverse tool box for gap-closing.  And I continue to find new ways to let that happen more quickly, more easily, with more fun and certainty for more people. At least, from one-to-one reports and my own observations.

But to measure that in a more quantifiable way, in the upcoming weeks, I’ll launch a 6 month experiment.

If you take part, you will identify a goal or intention you want to reach/realize/be living 6 months from now.  

It can be on any topic – health, career, relationship, whatever.  You choose and I’ll help you refine.

Then, for the next 6 months, you, me and the other participants will support you in getting there.

Then after 6 months, we’ll see if you did or didn’t meet your goal – or even had something better happen! After all, no need to limit yourself, right?

So that anyone can test the waters before committing, the first few weeks of the experiment will take place here, on the Consciousness Playground.

After that free trial period, you’ll be in a position to decide if you want to take part in the full 6-month coaching group or not.  (And become a participant in my PH.d. research study.)

I’ll explain the details later, but basically there will be a reasonable fee, the interaction will shift to a private group on Facebook and we will all knuckle down for laughs, chats, learning and high-fives in a private, intimate confidential setting.

Trust me, those who take part will get the best I have to give for 6 months.

I’ll meet you back here soon with more information, dates and details.   In the meantime, it feels good to be in contact with you again.  Feel free to say hi and share your thoughts below.

Truth is, I’ve missed that 🙂

I am so looking forward to this! Keep me posted while I ponder which “where I want to be in 6 months” I’d like to work on, LOL! xoxo

Hi Wendy!
How super great to hear from you. Awesome idea!
I always loved your work and recommended your website and products many times.
I’d love to join in this project and already see your PhD (Pioneer hot Degree) done easily and had more than great results!

Hi Elke, thank you for visualizing such a lovely PhD experience and study outcome. And for your longstanding support of me and my work. You are such a gift.

I’m in! I’m in! I’m in! WooHoo, so excited for you x0

Hi Wendy. You already saw this message, but I’m posting it here now that the comment section is working again. Thank you so much for everything. Have a great weekend!

Hi Wendy. Congratulations! We’ve missed you too. If I’m a suitable subject, I would like to do this experiment with you. You helped Greg and me so much when you suggested he come into my lifespace from a distance, and he did. He’s been with me ever since from that distance, so I’d like to close the gap for there now. The CPTSD and my belief filter have really impacted us in a way where we both feel stuck for several years now. We’re definitely ready for the next step. I can’t wait to see if we can work together. I’m so excited to see you back. Best wishes from Greg and me. -Daliah

Big hug to you, Daliah! That sounds like a wonderful experiment and intention.

Stay tuned, Deb – thanks for the thumbs up!
