A wise person should be like a well-tuned instrument, always playing the right note.
Therefore, one’s efforts should be to the fine-tuning of this instrument, which is oneself.

After many requests over the years for individual coaching, Diane Musho Hamilton is offering a group coaching series over 10 sessions, limited to ten participants. Diane will explore general themes of adult development while providing specific feedback in support of each individual’s efforts to grow and refine.

The benefit of a group coaching experience is that it allows the coach to experience participants in a group setting so that she can work with some unconscious social patterns. It is a wonderful opportunity to bond, share insights, and enjoy and develop a greater capacity for intimacy.
