Dare to Blossom Life Coaching with Mary Lunnen

I am so grateful to all of you - everyone who supports me and connects in all the various ways - thank you, thank you. During November, as another way to show my gratitude, I am offering you a 'two for one' special for coaching sessions.

Here are some comments about how people felt after a Dare to Blossom Session:

gift poto"I was amazed at the changes in my thought processes leading to greater clarity."
"Mary's style as a coach is gentle, kind and supportive."
"The sessions enabled me to reconnect with my own insight and intuition ."
"At a time when I was at a crossroads in life, coaching helped me find my direction."
"As a professional "superwoman" wasn't sure I needed life coaching but the sessions have changed my life."

Reflections: Settling

When being prompted for a title for this newsletter for November the word 'Settling' came to mind, I am not sure why - and that is what I will explore in a moment through some flow writing. 

First, I went to the dictionary, as I often do - and I find it is a fascinating word, with many meanings. Some of these are: to agree, to make comfortable, to live, to move lower, to pay, to become quiet and calm. One of the suggested origins of the word is "Old English setlan ‘to seat, place’, from settle."

The suggestion I tuned into is "to relax into a comfortable position....." This feels perfect for today, and for the act of writing this to you. Not to see it as simply an item on my to-do list, or a chore - but rather a relaxation. A settling in as if in a comfortable chair, sitting opposite you - my dear friend. Opening a conversation - and many of you do write back to me with your thoughts and comments and I so treasure those exchanges.

'Settling' also chimes, for me, with this time of year - tonight, 28th October, here in the UK, British Summer Time ends, and we return to GMT, Greenwich Mean Time. Signaling the beginning of darker evenings and mornings, cooler weather, a drawing inwards. 

Last Saturday a group of women shared a beautiful day, the Mellow October Workshop - a one-day retreat that Melanie and I collaborated on together. On the day it was anything but mellow outside, with a severe gale raging, the trees thrashing around, heavy showers passing by and lashing down with rain. Every so often the clouds cleared and we saw a glimpse of sunshine.

Reflections: The space between ripening and harvest..... power and progress

I began writing this for you sitting in the late September sunshine in a sheltered spot in my garden. Reflecting on a number of things I have let go, some for ever, and some for now at least. Many of the plans I shared with you in my last newsletter have either been canceled or postponed.

It seems I needed to make space. Space to sit with the questions, to be comfortable living the questions, in the words from Rainer Maria Rilke:


“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

This year of unfolding, unfurling, the petals of the Power Flower with groups of women at the workshops here in Cornwall has been a joy. The slow pace, flowing with the seasons, has felt a luxury of allowing, or living the questions.

There is a lot in this issue - new ideas, thoughts, and some notices and details, so do look through first and see if any of the offers that expire on 1st September are of interest to you, I am sending this out before the end of the month to give you a little more time.

Reflections: A Quest, and an invitation to join me


This autumn, I am embarking on a quest, a journey to the edge of the land, where new horizons are visible - or maybe hidden just beyond the curvature of the earth. The literal edge, for me is exemplified by the place I sit so often, on the cliffs near my home here in north Cornwall.

Today our word is Being. Deep purple colour.

My first response is..... to take a deep breath in...... and exhale deeply too. Yes, being, simply being. Being me, being the true me. Being wise, being brave - those words came up for me recently with one of my coaches.

BeingRecently I have felt a little like a plant could feel when it is growing rapidly in warm, wet, summer weather.

A new month, a fresh start.
Sending out beautiful pdf reports to the Point of Focus members as a companion for the unfolding of the month ahead. So delicious to be invited to do that for people. (You can sign up to join us through the link above - any time before the 8th August you will receive your report for August. After that your subscription will begin in September)

And, so, I drew some cards for myself too. Light. Patience, Understanding. There will be a photo here - my patience is being sorely tested by technical and broadband issues as I try to write this.
Maybe an abstract or a photo will work.....? No. Ah, 'Understanding' found a away around it.
