About Wendy Weiss
I love the power in words and stories. How people express themselves and use language to create their understanding of the world is endlessly fascinating to me. Having studied writing and literature, I practice using a keen sense of observation and being in a perpetual state of beginner’s mind. I love discovering what’s hidden in plain sight.
Energy Coaching is a natural extension of my truest way of being. I listen intuitively to people’s stories and their narratives about themselves, hearing deeper energetic threads. Metaphors, turns of phrase, and personal lexicons that crop up in conversation reveal what's moving beneath the surface, close to the soul. These are sacred offerings that I hold in reverence, awe, and genuine curiosity.
In daily conversation, we just don’t normally get to experience that level of being seen and heard.
When was the last time you felt truly heard
that everything you said was the most important matter in that moment
Listening is the heart of coaching for me, to be in a deeper level of communing. I revel in being that presence to others, in service to those who seek to discover a truer sense of themselves, who find dynamic healing and unbounded creativity as ways to fuel their personal growth. I am especially inspired by and drawn to work with those who are willing to embrace transformation in response to life's challenges and changes.
Life coaching is often seen as something a person seeks out when he needs advice or wants to be taught how to do something better. The coach is seen as an expert at something they have achieved for themselves. In this model, people hire coaches to learn the secrets of the coach's success.
Energy coaching is entirely different. The orientation of wisdom is you. In tuning into your energy body and the energetic field, with my guidance you discover that you already possess innate skills and have full capacity to know what's best for you. Everything you need already exists within you. Energy coaching gives you the space and the reflection to strengthen that connection to your own knowing, your own way of being.
Sure, I can use different tools to help you in your personal development, but you already know what you need. My role is to listen--with intuitive and transcendent listening informed by your energy. Together we open channels of discovery and hold space for powerful inquiry and deep dive exploration. The field of potent potential and all possibilities is available to us at all times, when we know how to access it. This is my offering to you through Energy Coaching.
Who would you be if you were in wholly energetic alignment
with your values and actions, in your being and your doing, in your inner world and the outer world

I have studied with Virginia over the years in various ways. The depth and freedom to explore my craft along with other star-curious beings feels like a return to an ancient inner knowing and an infinite belonging to the cosmos.
My continuing studies of energy work as a spiritual practice have brought me to Biodynamics. I feel I have always known this way as a healing modality and have found the remembering.
