Private Life Mentoring Sessions

ONLINE Private Life Mentoring Sessions

For Individuals and Couples

I want you and me to wake up each day ready to celebrate life and embrace the full on reality of all it brings. It can be meaningful and full of joy and you can ride the bumps without suffering.  It is possible and I believe I can help you make it a reality in your life. It’s what I’m here to do. – Michael Lee

Clients say: -more empowering than coaching, more fun than therapy, wisdom is an inside job.

A session with Michael catalyzes powerful change by bridging the gap between body, heart, spirit, and mind. In this powerful research-backed, body-centered approach, you’ll be skillfully guided toward present centered awareness and embodiment that leads toward life-changing insights and action

Life Mentoring with Michael will help you:

  • get clear on what matters to you in life
  • attune to the wisdom of your body as well as your mind.
  • live a more meaningful and authentic life
  • move in the direction in life that’s right for you at this time in your life
  • create more fulfilling, authentic, and meaningful relationships
  • adjust more easily and skillfully to major life events
  • become more empowered and less dependent on people and things to make you happy

If you are in a rut, or stressed out, or not knowing which way to turn next,  you can benefit from this kind of mentoring.  Often, a series of just 3 sessions will help you turn your life in a new direction.  You will appreciate the clarity and the choices you will be making on a daily basis.  You and others will notice the difference manifesting in your life in many ways. Like to try it and see if it’s a fit for you in where you are right now in your life and do this without needing to make a full commitment until you try?

“You can pursue any practice you like without a mentor, and you can build knowledge, but it’s unlikely you’ll every build mastery. A mentor teaches you everything you can’t learn from a book” – Eric Greitens (Resilience).
