Coaching

Spiritual strategy & support for your greatest
transpersonal & existential inquiries

Spiritual strategy & space-holding for your greatest transpersonal & existential inquiries

It’s not just you, and you’re not alone.

Emerging Consciousness Coaching exists because we’re not always sure we exist.

The backdrop of our lives is unrecognizable from two decades ago. We’re awash in climate anxiety, global uprisings, and round-the-clock access to endless information streams.

Emerging Consciousness Coaching is sensitive, somatic, & strategic TRICKSTER MAGIC for these desperately serious times.

It’s too much to hold alone, so let’s make space for big conversations about your big questions, big fears, & even BIGGER visions.

Together, we’ll find presence amidst the chaos to help you move forward with integrated action.

what are you going through?

Turn your existential crisis, climate anxiety, or transpersonal experience into liberation medicine for you & your people.

Transpersonal Experiences

A sudden awakening, a near-death experience, deep grief, a transcendent ceremony. Transpersonal experiences are those spiritual experiences in our lives where we suddenly feel reality far beyond our physical form. They can rapidly expand our consciousness. And they are often extremely destabilizing.

In our sessions, we’ll root down into what remains & sustains while tending to your transforming world view & sense of self.

Existential Crises

Whether we come to existential crisis accidentally, through our efforts in personal & professional development, or unexpectedly, through suddenly intolerable circumstances (internal & external), they can cast our sense of reality out into oblivion, leaving us feeling profoundly lost, alone, & drifting aimlessly in the vast cosmos.

Using animist & archetypal anchors, we’ll activate your intuitive & intelligent guidance systems so that you land on solid ground from which to shape your new form.

Climate Anxiety

Feeling lost & anxious about the climate crisis? As ecological transformation intensifies, grief for what’s disappearing & anxiety for uncertain days ahead can freeze us in place. There’s a way to be present without becoming overwhelmed.

Our work together will help you find pathways towards action & community while tending to your grief for what’s falling away.

If you're looking for spiritual guidance that is:
sensitive ✔ somatic ✔ & strategic ✔
Emerging Consciousness Coaching is for you!

the three foundations

Our work together, no matter the container, is built upon deep listening, creaturehood, & movement.

Deep Listening

Deep listening is a practice that returns us to the source material of all creation: energy, matter, and awareness. Through this full-body experience, we reshape our identity & belong ourselves back to the earth.

Creaturehood

Before our minds were polluted with language & morality, we were born free on a planet that provides everything we need to live a beautiful life. We prioritize & reinforce our kinship with all creatures.

Movement

We take action from a deeply coherent place. New cultural reflexes emerge organically with ease. No longer effortful, changes arrive & simply “make sense” through the coherent cultural body.

Here's what you can expect:

  • Each heart-expanding, mind-altering session lasts 60-90 minutes depending on where the conversation leads us
  • Trauma-informed somatic & sonic practices to support your capacity for presencing
  • Rooted mental frameworks to help you draw your own map through human mythos & timeless, borderless cultural expressions
  • Lots of playful humor, creativity, & silliness because this life is WILD
  • Gentle awakening to the animist & apocalyptic already within you
  • Where appropriate, deep dives into neuroscience, consciousness studies, spiritual traditions, cultural practices, & movement building
  • Follow-up support via Voxer or email; I won’t leave you hanging!

Hi! 👋🏽
I'm heather love

I’m a lifelong musician, educator, and child of earth. Most of my life has been dedicated to understanding the human condition through the realms of music, ecstatic spiritual experience, and the body. I believe deeply in the self-determination of all species and live my life in a constant flow of compassion & inquiry for all us creatures doing our best here on earth.

Most recently, I’ve earned a certification in Plant Medicine Integration Coaching (through the Plant Spirit School) and in Integral Sound Healing (through Svaram in Auroville, for whom I’ve also served as faculty). I also hold a Master’s of Arts in Music from the University of California at Berkeley where I researched the neurological underpinnings of communal music-making for individual, interpersonal, and collective healing.

I’m so glad you’re here to join me for the journey onward! You can read more about my story in music & culture, brains & creatures, by clicking below.

———

One of the seminal experiences of my life was serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mali. Living in a small, rural village for two years without running water or electricity confirmed for me so many of my suspicions from childhood. Specifically, that participating in a healthy society is deeply fulfilling, that paying attention to the earth is immediately satisfying, and that living with less is a relief. The hell of malnutrition and encroaching desertification is very real. But the joy of each other’s company is somehow more real.

My graduate research in ethnomusicology at UC Berkeley centered on connecting emerging neuroscientific research with studies on how communal music making is used to create & maintain social cohesion—especially in the face of individual & collective upheaval. I wasn’t so much hoping to discover something new, as I was trying to prove to the keepers of this society what I intuitively knew about the importance of music & sound, and how our atrophied or numbed-out sensitivities to vibration is a major contributing factor to the deterioration of modern society.

These two experiences (among so many others) have given me much to consider about the systems in which we work, and how restrictive and oppressive they are to one’s true nature.

I started asking less of the world and returned to what I love: Listening. Wandering. Music making. Savoring my creaturehood. The exile I’d felt in human society began to soften as I returned to a more holistic existence within my ecosystem.

As I found my voice—the one without the anger—I began using it to speak out about the kind of world I want to live in. Through community organizing & advocacy work, I found that many others had been feeling the same but were lacking the words and cultural practices to articulate those feelings. How do we invent those words? How do we create the culture we all want but can’t see? All of this, of course, heightened by the emerging evidence that the climate was about to spiral out of control.

One pandemic later, and here we are 😃

I currently live in the South of France where I listen to magpies and Mistrals, work as a mentor for changemakers (like you!), write pretty love songs to the earth, teach deep listening, and advocate for the integrative support of climate refugees.

The challenges we face are enormous, it’s true. But we have each other, and we’re not so far away from earth that we won’t be able to feel our way back home. I can’t wait to meet you and learn all about the earthly gifts you’re bringing into the world!

I love you, keep going 🌱

This style of coaching is for you if:

  • You are full of heart & full of questions
