What We Do
Life Coaching: AIE is dedicated to providing life coaching tailored specifically to our clients’ needs. Life coaching at its core maintains a dedication between client and coach towards goal directed thinking and the development of strategic action plans set towards moving in the direction of these goals. Clients reach deeper and more meaningful levels of emerging insight through the ongoing, collaborative dialogue with the life coach. I specialize in goal setting, building awareness in my clients, relationship coaching, and work-life balance coaching. Sessions are conducted primarily via Skype. Skype ID: cjshell
Dream Work: AIE offers the opportunity for the client to participate in dream work activities. Our approach to dream work is from a Jungian approach in the understanding that both the individual and society as a whole are embodiments of a collective archive of cross-cultural archetypes. Additionally, the work of Dr. Jeremy Taylor is integral to AIE’s philosophy on dream work in which dreams are understood as both subtle teachers and sources of wholly positive nourishment and emerging insight.
Yoga: Christopher’s yogic philosophy was imparted from the lineage of Swami Saraswati Satyananda, one of the major founders of the Bihar school of Yoga in India. Swami Satyananda brought his teachings to the U.S. and imparted them upon famous teachers Rama Jyoti Vernon and his personal teacher, Ruth Hartung, more commonly known as Shraddasagar. Rama and Shraddha have developed and fine-tuned a unique approach to hatha yoga known as “back breathing” that AIE carries onwards our own teaching practice. Furthermore, the practice of yoga nidra is offered as a companion to the life coaching process.
