Let Joy Fill You

Navigation Coaching

Hi, I'm Anna Dunwell,

You're probably wondering "What is a Navigation Coach?"
A Navigation Coach is a person who encourages you to be you, and who provides you with roadmaps to yourself. Different from a Life Coach who works collaboratively with you to put a plan in place to enable you to make the changes you seek, I work with you from where you are in your journey to move you to peace and increased resilience and better self care. I do share techniques, skills and resources which I have learned that have helped me survive, flourish and find joy as I faced and overcame that many challenges connected with being a black woman. I currently work with Black Women and Other Women of under and misrepresented groups.
I am inspired by people, nature and love. The lotus flower grows from the mud, but when it blooms it rises above the mud slowly emerging and bursting out of the water into a beautiful blossom. The lotus seeds contain perfectly formed leaves as miniatures of what they will become when it blooms. Its stem is flexible but does not break. I believe that people are like that and that our journey's are similar in that way to all of nature.
 
"I thank you so much for our meeting yesterday.  I value your beautiful spirit and what you poured into me personally." ~ Durham NC, 10/19/2017

I also like the blue torch cactus which is native to semitropical areas of Brazil. It stores all it needs inside itself. It blooms at night and is pollinated by bats and sphinx moths, just as we are sometimes inspired to prosper from unlikely experiences. Life wants us to grow and flower and provides inspiration all around us.

Often the biggest challenge is finding the time to take time to grow. My goal is to provide space and care to allow you to incorporate yoga, meditation and self care into your life without feeling guilty about needing this time for yourself. For many women, Sunday after church is that time. I propose we meet several times over a period of time in person or on the telephone.
Please contact me to schedule a time for a consultation. You have all you need within you. What I can do is to show you what’s along the path and how to navigate it when you get there. based on my own experience of been there, done that, survived and flourished.
