Author, coach, speaker, facilitator, Posy specializes in helping others remove the barriers that prevent them, as an individual or group, from doing their great work.
Posy Gering found her path during ninth grade geometry, while she was contemplating the axiom: Through any given point an infinite number of lines can pass.
Suddenly, she realized the axiom could be applied to life. Any moment contains a vast number of possibilities. Yet, most of the time, we are aware of just one or two. How, she wondered, could a person see more?
She sought an answer to that question through decades of study, research and application through science, the arts, academia, Eastern and Western medicine and healing modalities. She found that enabling people to contact their possibilities resulted in a reduction of stress and an increase in confidence, courage and calm.
Posy Gering writes, speaks, and designs experiences that enable people to address their greatest challenges, uncover their greatest opportunities and act. She helps her clients solve current problems, tap possibility, envision the future, and build the new capacities and skills to achieve their vision.
