From Fixing to Flowing

The Welcoming Way is a simple, accessible practice for entering a powerful present moment where decisions, challenges, relationships, and goals can be understood, released or transformed.

Most coaching methods try to help you solve the problems you think you have. Welcoming is different: it invites you too explore the ideas and feelings that keep those problems stuck in place.

“Above all, what I experienced working with Ryan was clarity… I cannot recommend working with Ryan enough because the sense of relief that comes with clarity is like nothing else. You should call him today. “

Derrick Kuhn

Founder, Managing Director – Brillity Digital


“The past few years had really caused me to hide my authentic self and think it wasn’t valued. I silenced my voice and chose to hide it. That had been a conflict within my soul. Thanks, Sharon, for lighting the fire and helping me see what I was blind to.”

Matt B

Director, Microsoft Corp

Most of us think that happiness will come from fixing or changing those parts of ourself that we think are in the way. The amazing thing is that happiness, healing and peace actually come from giving up fixing or changing those things.
