Gage Christine Bock, MA, ACC, CPCC
Hi ~ I'm Gage.
Here’s what I value most in life:
Authenticity, being oneself, making a difference, courage, independence, growth, having fun/play, nature, creativity, and this absolutely magical and magnificent EARTH that we get to call home!
My path to where I am today has been a long and winding one.
And, what I know so far about living a life that's authentic and true to who we are is that it isn’t a linear path.
It’s more like this:
Annnnd.... our [western] society does NOT do a good job of helping us to navigate life in this way. Most of us are taught a more "rational", linear way of thinking, a more "practical" way of getting from A to B.
We're also taught to value security, "the safe bet", and to "take control" of our situation.
And all of this is ok... up to a certain point. And then it doesn't work so well anymore. It feels dead, dull, lifeless.
And that's when we might start to feel lost, disoriented and helpless.
We're no longer who we used to be and may not even know who we're becoming.
This is where the right guidance - be it from a coach or mentor or guide or elder - can be especially helpful.
WHAT I BELIEVE
I believe that we all do better when we have guides, mentors, coaches, true adults and elders in our lives.
I believe that we cannot see our own blindspots and that we actually NEED others (who are not friends or family) to help us to see and then grow past these places.
I believe that we do better together than alone.
I believe that we're each born with a very particular genius, and that our true work is to find, embody, and inhabit that as fully as we can while we’re here (no small task to be sure).
Furthermore, I believe that our world actually needs us to take our true place, in order for the entire ecosystem to truly thrive.
I believe that we're here to use our imaginations in service of life.
I believe that we need more heart, less mind.
I believe that our dreams are exactly what the world needs - and NOW.
I believe that WE are the ones that can and will change the world, starting from the inside out.
I believe that it's up to each of us.
WHAT I DO, AND WHY
As a Soul-Centered Professional Coach, I help people hear and know what really lights them up, and then move past fear (the small Self) and into the bigger story they're meant to live.
I do this work because I believe that EVERYONE has something important and necessary to give and share with world, and I personally know just how hard it can be to know what that thing is, let alone actually do, give or express it.
I do this work because I believe that the world needs - now more than ever - each of us to BE who we truly are and show up as fully and as honestly as we can - not only for our own fulfillment, but for the health of the planet and future life.
