“Stress Free Now” Interview

My interview with Dr. Robert Wright, Jr. and Christine Wright, founders of Stress Free Now, began with a focus on Integral Coaching® and Healing, and took us in a variety of wonderful directions.

Over the course of our time together, we explored a brief overview of a comprehensive, balanced (integral) approach to coaching, and to living a full life,and touched on self-awareness, self-compassion, “why ‘integral’?” and even what might bring folks to a bar to watch the Super Bowl or World Cup together.

Transformation, Poetry and Integral Coaching®

How might Integral Coaching® and poetry, respectively and collaboratively, facilitate true transformation, you ask?

Lindsay Kelkres and I explore these questions and others in her show, Art Actions: Featuring Newtown Art and Artists, which aired in June on CTV 21 in Connecticut. Thanks to Lindsay and the folks at CTV 21 for sharing the show with a larger audience now.

See the bullets below the screen for some of the areas we explore.

A deep bow of gratitude to Lindsay, who asked me wonderfully open-ended questions and allowed me to reflect, riff, respond and rant in an open-ended way, and who captures the essence of our conversation through her skillful editing – no small task.

If you like where we go in this exchange, please like and comment on the show on Lindsay’s Facebook page, on YouTube, and on this page as well.

Here’s a taste of some of the areas we explored:

  • The respective benefits of reading and writing poetry
  • What is a poem? (yikes)
  • How poetry differs from other forms of writing
  • Why bother writing poetry
  • When is a poem finished (how I “know”)
  • Common obstacles to learning to write poetry
  • How poetry helps us learn about ourselves
  • How other poets and poems affect and inspire
  • Inspiration: when, where and how it may come
  • What is Integral Coaching®
  • Why Integral Coaching® and why ICC
  • How Integral Coaching® helps people
  • How certainty and fear inhibit development
  • Does all art lead to self-transformation
  • One life skill for everyone in the world???? 34:50 (YIKES!)
  • Are we all artists?
  • Two poems for you…

Talking About Transformation

How can Integral Coaching® and poetry, respectively, facilitate true transformation, you ask? Tune in to CTV 21 on June 11 and 18 at 7PM and June 14 and 21 at 2PM and see how (well) I respond to those questions. The one-hour show is part of the series, “Art Actions: Featuring Newtown Art and Artists,” produced by Lindsay Kelkres.

The show is available to CTV 21 viewers in Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Kent, Monroe, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Roxbury, Sherman, Southbury, Trumbull, Washington and Woodbury, CT. Once the June 21 broadcast has aired, the interview will be available to a wider audience on YouTube. I will post it here.

I’ve not seen the final version that will air, but Lindsay did great research prior to our interview, and asked wonderfully insightful questions during our two hours together.

Stay tuned for more on this as it unfolds.
