Coaching conversations with Lyedie Geer and a women focusing on fulfilling personal, professional, and creative longings.


I'm Lyedie Geer and welcome to The Longings Project. 

My coaching practice is dedicated to helping women fulfill their personal, professional & creative longings.

I believe that fulfillment of those longings (however grand or intimate) are a burgeoning part of the beauty, truth, and goodness the world needs now.

I'm here to help you move beyond mere goal setting — to be your guide as you steer skillfully into the territory of what is deeply meaningful to you.

With my guidance women find fulfillment. They accomplish this by attuning to their deepest longings while listening to the unique ways that life is calling to them, and then stepping in to fresh and resourceful approaches to their life.

• Young women who are dialing in to their life longings, finding their voices and — knowingly or
unknowingly— setting trajectories in the critical realms of work, family, and home.

• Women at mid-career who are finding and forging their unique version of success. Mothers
wrestling with the conundrum of tending their home and family alongside a fierce desire to fulfill
their creative passion and generate income.

• Mid-lifers who are faced with resolving the roads not traveled. Perhaps they long to to put the
capstone on their career, or to pursue something they have put off all their lives. Often as women
downshift and turn towards retirement they realize that enjoyment requires re-choreographing their
lives and re-arranging their identity. Click here to learn more about this exquisite time in life.

Lyedie has shown me how to see myself with more clarity and catch on to the ways that I'm thwarting what I really want for myself. . . . . She is wise, insightful and really on my side. Lyedie has a wealth of knowledge and her tool kit appears to be bottomless! Lately, I’ve been thinking of her as my secret weapon. Chela Davison, Former President of Integral Coaching Canada

About Lyedie

As a master coach and facilitator, I have been helping artists, entrepreneurs and leaders hone their craft and successfully get the word out for many years. Now I am turning my attention to the fulfillment of longing in the lives of women.

Longings are a deeply felt full-bodied conversation that is always going on between self and the world, self and others, self and spirit. Your longings are a yearning toward wholeness. Fulfilling a longing brings a resounding joy. . . . and the next thing. Losing touch with them, letting them languish or ignoring them, is a cause of great suffering.

What I bring to alleviating this suffering is a combination of rigor and intuition, a passion for the fullness of life, and a love for working collaboratively with capable, creative women who care deeply. Click here to read more about my work.

 
The work we did together two years ago just keeps on giving. I return to it often, continually amazed at the practical wisdom that was born out of our sessions together . . . . I’m not sure I’ve ever felt so seen, or so able to make such a profound shift in my approach to life.

Here are the results my clients are celebrating . . .

In a world that privileges the tangible, my clients achieve the tangible results they are looking for — as well as enjoying remarkable increases in their capacity as human beings. The magnificence in the the human spirit that they express here gives me confidence that what they have developed in themselves will continue to serve well beyond the immediate scope of our work together.

I began working with Lyedie at a point when I was finding it harder and harder to connect with my creative spirit, causing a downward spiral that was radiating out into my life. Her complete attention and fascination with my concerns, paired with her knowledge of the human psyche and belief in the realm of possibility has spurred me to rediscover and embrace even the smallest sparks within – honoring the obstacles and . . . now I’m stepping beyond them.

Who I Serve

I serve women who have potent yearnings, a creative ache; longings they find they need help to fulfill. This presents itself quite differently at different times in women's lives and it helps to have a guide who has a strong sense of what is needed when. 

Many centuries ago the mystics gave us the images of the triple goddesses to identify the phases of women's lives — Maiden, Mother and Crone. One of my favorite systems theory precepts is, “You can have have your cake and eat it too, but not all at once” because it applies so beautifully to the tyranny that women are up against these days. The tyranny of being everything-to-everybody-all-at-once. An impossible task, and one of the ways I address this is to turn to this ancient honoring of the phases of women’s lives and update it. It needs updating now, thanks to the equal rights movement, advances in technology, nutrition, and medicine. Now mothers are often also career women and we we are living longer, healthier lives. Between the phases of mother and crone a new time of life is opening up that we’ve been calling Maga (This is the feminine version of the term Magi, meaning wise man). Modern life has increased in complexity and with the addition of the Maga, I propose with all due respect to the wisdom of the ancients that we honor, and work skillfully in accord with four phases in women’s lives: Maiden, Mother-Warrior, Maga, and Crone. (Unfortunately, since we landed this term a number of years ago Mr Donald Trump has created the Acronym MAGA for Make America Great Again . . . but we are hoping to outlast him and to keep our sense of humor.)

Although I serve present day Maidens, Mother-Warriors, and Magas, the longings of the Maga are the primary focus of my coaching practice.

MAIDEN

Young women who are dialing in to their life longings, finding their voices and — knowingly or unknowingly— setting trajectories in the critical realms of work, family, and home.

Mother-Warrior

Mothers wrestling with the conundrum of tending their home and family alongside a fierce desire to fulfill their creative passion and generate income. Women and artists at mid-career who are finding and forging their unique version of success.
