      Coaching Poetry from a Spiritual Path

      Written over a period of many years, these poems will uplift the reader with their honesty, their faith in our collective potential and their celebration of the individual human spirit.

      As an executive coach, Dr John Blakey naturally focuses upon the themes of personal transformation, building high trust relationships and understanding the depths of the human psyche. In particular, this poetry will appeal to those who wish to drive for courageous goals and release themselves from the limitations of past expectations.

      "John's coaching poetry can serve as a facilitator for those on their own journey of change and transformation. It is challenging and still encouraging. It starts from a personal perspective and evolves into collective awareness. It captures the essence of what we are."
      From the review of the book by Carsten Ohrmann, Transformation Advisor, Speaker and Coach

      Praise for Coaching Poetry from a Spiritual Path

      "As I have been carefully going through John's poetry, I have found myself moved and touched numerous times. The deep thoughts, inner struggles, fears, joys, and different developments John describes in his writing speak to me on several levels - as a human being, as a professional and as a spiritual person with a continuous quest for a more conscious life. Dr. Monika B Levinson
