Nancy Kalina - Safe Space Life Coaching

I invite you to . . .

Take a break from your day to day life.


Remember who you authentically are.

We live our lives surrounded by an invasion of the external world. There are always decisions to be made, daily demands, and pressures from the constant commotion that is life in the 21st century. We take little time for ourselves. We don’t necessarily spend time with our inner thoughts, yearnings and hankerings that come from within us. We may even feel frustrated, feel like life is not flowing and not know why we are frustrated or why life feels like a struggle.

It’s possible that the still small voice within you holds the keys.

Safe Space life coaching is exactly that, a safe space for you to remember who you are and all that you can be.

I act as a guide to help re-introduce you to your personal navigation system. It is within this relationship with your essential self that your journey toward wellness, energy, and living your best life can begin.

Every once in a while, I sit on a gay, lesbian, and bisexual panel for a class at Indiana University–Bloomington. I have been doing these types of panels for at least fifteen years. I find them to be very educational. Additionally, I get to educate others about what it might be like to be a bisexual woman in America. I speak from my own perspective since that is the one I have lived and the one I know best. I don’t speak for other people who are bisexual or gay.

Over the past six weeks or so, I have been writing about Imago Dialogue and sharing with all of you its amazing tools. Reflecting on my amazing, though not perfect, relationship with Kim, I give credit to the Imago Dialogue tools. By using the tools of intentional communication, we learned how to communicate with each other in an intentional way. I was also able to effect change when supervising at a local high school with employees where we did not see eye to eye. I believe that intentional communication would be an incredible tool for us as people to use in our personal lives as well as with people where we do not share the same ideology.

I have heard from numerous readers about my last e-newsletter The Dance of Communication Part 2 that focused on the skill of validation in communication. Therefore, I think it would be helpful to take a deeper dive into what validation is and why it is so important. To do this, I am sharing with you the article by Karyn Hall that I read when preparing to write my last article.
