Normal things like:

In General

You do good things in the world, and you want your life to feel good too

You know how to work hard and push through, but that tactic no longer delivers

Things are a little too chaotic, and you're struggling to find the right direction

Your life is too structured, and you're struggling to find play and freedom

In Relationships

You want to get off the fence

Tension with a colleague is ruining every single day

You're persistently angry or resentful toward someone

There's a potentially unhealthy pattern in your relationships

You want a more honest relationship with your parent or child

In Creating

You know what a creatively brilliant moment feels like and want more of that, but you're running into blocks

You're moving slower than you want or maybe snowballing into all the avoidance tactics you can think of

Your doubt is finally too aggravating, seriously interfering with your output, and you want out

 
 

Or, maybe

You don't know exactly what the problem is. You may be irritated every day for no one reason, sitting in general confusion, or just unhappy. 

 
 

Noble Life Coaching (basic coaching package) 

Most of us are well meaning, good people. Some of us even effect important change in the world or in our communities, or want to. Unfortunately, our goodness isn’t always reflected thoroughly in our lives or in our primary life pursuit. Noble Life Coaching helps you pursue a value-driven life that you feel full and good about.

With good values in a tricky world, it can be difficult to figure out which foot to put forward. Sometimes the intensity of the societal issues you're focusing on derails you. It can be especially hard when normal life problems interfere with your grand plans, and exasperating when you can’t envision the plan to begin with.

Your way forward involves slowly but surely stepping in your right direction; operating with your unique balance, your joy; and taking an inspired and integrated approach to your value-driven life. 

Over the course of six one-hour sessions, you will: 

— Identify what helps make your life rich and meaningful
— Bring awareness to undercover elements that may be sabotaging straightforward progress
— Use powerful tools to face personal, social and political realities without trashing your peace of mind
— Honor yourself
— Test if you’re on the right track, and learn better ways to work with uncertainty
— Understand the cycle of change and where different aspects of your life fit in it
— Create or hone a vision for your life that you can get behind
— Start an honest and practical plan toward that vision

This is individualized, one-on-one coaching. It requires self-inquiry, a bit of stillness, and a bit of work. We’ll have some fun too.

If you know that a thriving life for you and a better world go hand-in-hand, do this. Noble Life Coaching provides the focus, inspiration and tools. 

6 one-hour sessions + email support between sessions: $360

 

 

Held and Handled

Problems come and go, but if one is sticking around a little too long, or you want to quickly handle something that has popped up, Held and Handled allows direct insight, honesty and compassion to see you through. 

Maybe a relationship took a turn, or you’re having difficulty in a new job, or you’re on the fence with an important and difficult decision.    

Over the course of three one-hour sessions, you will:

— Recognize insidious thought patterns that may be contributing to the distress
— Clarify your honest truth in the situation in a compassionate space
— Take sincere, courageous action (I can't make you, but you will inspire yourself)
— Pick up tools to apply to future problems 

This is individualized, one-on-one coaching.

If you want to look into the heart of it, this is your chance. Held and Handled provides the safe space and tools. 

3 one-hour sessions + email support between sessions: $180

 

Work with Me

 
 

Coaching sessions with me are guided self-inquiry, a bit of stillness, and a bit of work. 

And, of course, my ideas about what could be going on. Your job is to bring all of yourself, your worries, wants, frustrations, and goals. My job is to listen deeply, notice what you're saying in the spaces between your words, and draw all that out for consideration and compassion. That's my gift, my talent. 

Plus

The coaching methodology I'm trained in assumes that we all know what we want, what we need, and how to live well; but traumas and hidden, potentially false, beliefs about ourselves and the nature of things keep us from consciously knowing how to thrive. The tools I use uncover/remind/encourage the antidote to these ailments: your unique ability to be in perpetual creative response to life, which conveniently includes understanding and honoring what makes you joyful. 

It takes awareness, learning and practice, essentially, coaching. First, coaching by me, and then by yourself (and possibly back to me if you get stuck again). Through this process, you'll gain insight and better tools with which to continue charting and walking your path to a highly functional, satisfying, and rising life.


Things we'll do:

Recognize and break through vampiric thought patterns FOR GREAT RELIEF.

We'll investigate the myelin and neural pathways that may be sucking your life force. Create more space, gain helpful perspective, and get unstuck. 

Make sense of your wild subconscious FOR DEEPER UNDERSTANDING.

Get tangible insight into your visions and dreams. They can help clarify aspects of your real life self. Have some lasting psychedelic impressions? Bring 'em!

Uncover and be in touch with your blessed instincts FOR GUIDANCE.

Our "freedom" in options can get overwhelming. Make the right decisions guided by true intentions and the instincts within you. Shape a fuller, more honest life.

Set and take the right practical steps FOR PEACE OF BODY AND MIND.

Once we establish you're moving with the right intentions, we can make a forgiving, reasonable, and inspired action plan. Real and practical direction.

About Me

For most of my adult life (I’m 36), I have done all the things I thought were necessary for good living, including extraordinary things to chart my own course, live happily, and avoid mundane traps. I even changed into a creative career. Honestly, I did self-coach pretty well, and I naturally coached others well too. People knew me for it. I engaged in deep consciousness exploration, brave relationships, consistent self-inquiry and was dedicated to equanimity of mind in my approach to life. I walked my talk (as people say in the industry...over and over), and then some, before I even knew what coaching was. 

BUT

While we know us smart, hard-working, conscious people are great, what’s up when our lives don’t thoroughly reflect all of our innate greatness? For years I was unknowingly hedging my bets in ways that were hurting me deeply, allowing my problems to roll on by pretending everything was okay or I’d figure it out eventually, or telling myself I shouldn’t need help because the problems were normal. 

That’s exactly when brilliant people need a hand with awareness and to grab better tools. I sought professional help, a therapist, yogis, even psychics, and, finally, coaches. While each pro was crucially helpful, life coaches leveled me up in a straightforward, tangible way. Coaches helped me get divinely honest, put nonsense to bed, and learn how to deal with obstacles better and faster. In tandem, I upgraded my lifelong natural coaching abilities to professional ones and have been working strategic magic with brilliant people and their normal problems ever since. 

Real satisfaction arises in all aspects of my life. You want some too? 

I’m trained as a Martha Beck life coach. She’s an author, coach, monthly columnist for O: The Oprah Magazine, Harvard PhD and ex-academic, and much more. Her method is firmly based in psychological and neurological research and incorporates Buddhist thought and decades of application. 

I’m occasionally a print and web designer, and previously worked in criminal justice public policy reform. I’m recently married and plan to start having children soon.

Paragini’s motherly and caring WHOLE being makes it easy to confide in her. Her guidance is not only backed by life experience but also a clear and focused intuitive understanding. Her graceful and gentle approach offer comfort and room for self discovery. It’s reassuring to have someone on your side who helps you make sense of a confusing journey.

Paragini has a no-bullshit approach that is very refreshing. I’ve felt free to say what’s really on my mind because I know she will respond in kind. There is a strength to her kindness and I’ve grown to lean on that.
