Mission

To help introspective individuals cultivate concrete daily practices that support their Call of Self

With a daily practice you can build on insights and sustain them within the rush of everyday life. Mira Nussbaum of Call of Self  helps you develop personalized strategies to remember the lessons you have learned and apply them as difficult circumstances reappear.  Call of Self helps you develop a set of tools, or Soul Song, through which you can share your own unique gifts for communion with self, other, and the divine. This set of tools acts like a “nest” or safe haven that stays with you wherever you go. 

finding your soul's song

I developed a workbook and game-board as a companion for the work we do in our sessions.  The workbook is filled with practices, tools, exercises and information to help you design and build a foundation for your spiritual journey.   It is a base framework which inspires and invites you to use it as a scrapbook, map, and place to record exercises and techniques we practice during our time together and between sessions. During our sessions we will work with the game-board as a hands-on and interactive way to track and celebrate the progress you are making.

 These are the core elements of my coaching approach which are outlined in the workbook.  

A regular check-in with self: 5 minutes-1 hour daily. Examples: meditation, breathing, singing, dancing, journaling, list of questions, pausing.

A personal mission statement:  what you know about your own gifts, talents and abilities and how you want to live your life to its fullest.

Practices: tools for working with gratitude and acceptance and tools to shift and expand limiting beliefs. How you cope when things fall apart.  How you work with hardship and grief.  How you move through difficulties.  Defining, designing and implementing your own practices so that you can remind yourself in those tough times what your soul’s song is.                                                                   

A personal definition of God/divine: exploring and clarifying relationship to purpose, meaning, will, divinity, higher self, something larger than self, reason, unknown, hope, belief, unconditional love, acceptance and whatever else calls to you.

Identifying a long term mentor or guide: A teacher or elder, therapist, support person to go to when you need to be reminded who you are and to guide you towards your own inner light.  A place to receive full loving attention from someone who can witness your journey without trying to fix or change you.

Goals: tools for measuring success and growth in life. Seasonal or weekly reference points to support growth in the following areas: health, relationships, family, work, personal projects, hobbies, education.

A personal scripture: inspiring poems, videos, radio shows, books, pictures, stories, or drawings; anything that allows you to connect with something outside of yourself. 

A personal history: a place to reference and keep track of experiences, lessons, goals, visions, dreams (a scrapbook, a journal, picture books, maps of self discovery

Coaching Manifesto:

Stepping into my coaching role is my part in a cultural revolution towards a future where people live and work together in community.  I am called to be a coach in order to continue my search for the meaning of community in all its forms: family, neighborhood, work, friends, strangers, communion with God.

My core principles for practicing a healthy relationship with self, other, planet:

  • Not being limited by our beliefs: commitment to something larger than self and the things we currently know; full embrace of all that exists in the world.  Building a common vision or committing to a common purpose. Accepting life as mystery.
  • Confronting our shadow: healthy, honest sharing and communication; cultivating interdependence. I believe that vulnerability, trust, and intimacy in the expression of our deepest wounds and shadows are essential to healthy connection.
  • Integrating all parts: integrating the dark and light side of ourselves, giving room for all aspects of ourselves, and sharing honestly with others is necessary for us to learn to live with and truly accept one another.
  • Living out deeper purpose: articulating and embodying one's own gifts and passions by actualizing our unique purpose in the world.

Why i am a coach:

I want to share my vision of healthy community with people who desire to live real and authentic lives.

I desire to see more authenticity, love, and community in the world.

I look forward to spending each day working with people who are building these practices into their lives, creating community and cultivating a new culture and society.
