Coaching the Spirit, poems of transformation, is a book of poetry for coaches, leadership trainers, and all those committed to the journey of human development. As Karen Kimsey-House says in her introduction, “In reading poetry, I am forever and deeply changed.” Jacek and Ann's poems are very simple and very strong. They made me smile, laugh and forgive myself. A powerful tool for coaches. ~Anthony Parry, CPCC, United Kingdom Ann and Jacek are two of the most insightful, passionate, and committed individuals I know, and their poetry reflects this in every word and nuance. Every time I read one of their poems, it's as if a part of my soul wakes up and feels the alive energy and possibility of transformation and human connection. ~Wendy Gutin, CPCC, PCC, Staff Leader at the Coaches Training Institute, U.S.A. The poems by Ann and Jacek invite us to explore the raw edges of our being. Their metaphors go beyond the limits of the linear mind and connect us to deeper places of knowing. They are transformative, just as good coaching. ~Ursula Glunk, CPCC, PCC, Maastricht, The Netherlands Ann and Jacek's poems help bring me home to myself. As they share their own souls, I feel known, seen, understood, encouraged, and accompanied in my own unfolding. Thank you for these words that at once recognize challenge yet consistently generate hope, optimism, and love. Reading your words, I am left feeling more whole, more free, more inspired, and more connected to others walking this life's journey. ~Ariel Lublin, Lead Trainer, Center for Leadership and Dialogue, U.S.A. There is something so profound about your ability to put words into the world that so clearly reflect what goes on in a human existence. Words that are there, trapped inside me, unable to figure out how to express themselves. Your poems give them a voice. ~Vicki Cotter, CPCC, U.S.A. This is a wonderful book of "coaching poetry." The writing is filled with deep feeling and passion. It is like a soul dialogue, a spiritual understanding. Ann and Jacek have chosen what Robert Frost called "the road less traveled" to express the mission and impact of coaching by using the vehicle of poetry. So much of the real essence of what happens in coaching occurs between the lines, so it is truly a gift to have these poems! ~Joanna Antkiewicz, ACC, Executive coach, Poland The generosity and love is just emanating in this gift of your book... to us and the coaching world...and the clients touched by the coaches who have this. Thank you; it is inspirational, you've splashed a big colouring of orange, purple, and white into the space for me. ~Biba Binotti, CPCC, ORSC, United Kingdom The poetry assembled in this book provides me with new places from which to explore the hearts, minds and souls of my clients. It opens me to new questions and shifts and heals emotions that arise. It is a wonderful reminder of who we are as human BE-ings, our true nature and how we can connect to our soul through poetry. ~Ursula Pottinga, CPCC, U.S.A.
