What is Integral Development?
When you integrate your body, heart, mind, and soul, you can develop and perform in an ever-changing, complex world
Body | Wisdom
Our body informs us about the way we see the world and the impact it has on us. The body connects to the space around us. When you move your body in that space, you relate to a new kind of wisdom.
HEART | Energy
The heart is the master organizer of our energy. It is the center of our emotions and the creator of our power. When aligned with the mind, it creates peace and long lasting performance.
MIND | PEACE
The mind has the power to create or destroy your reality and your performance. When you quiet the mind and connect to your heart and soul, then you can face any challenge with brilliance.
SOUL | CONNECTION
Our soul connects to our sense of purpose and lets it shine through. It is the center that experiences the interconnections to people around us and our environment. The soul is in that sense the system’s view; it sees the bigger picture.
About Sara Bigwood
International Development Coach | PCC | ORSCC | Leadership Circle | Lumina Learning | MBTI
I was a driven, enthusiastic, flexible, and creative mind. I was a wolf dreaming big. After working in Marketing and Advertising in big companies in Belgium, I started my own coaching company called Pro Action Coaching. I believe that only your actions could testify about your intentions. I was all "doing," and I was successful at it. I helped many clients see their patterns and become more proactive in their life. It is when I came back from a 4-year expatriation in New York that I became aware of the importance of managing energy and integrating our body, heart, mind, and soul properly. I was a mind on steroids, always worrying and thinking about the next endeavor or what I did wrong in the past. My emotions drove me and disconnected from my soul. Until I burned out. My friends always qualified me as full of energy and determination. I had none. I felt overwhelmed by a complex world that evolved too fast. At the same time, I was eagerly learning about Adult Development Theory. It dawned on me that to embrace change and stay afloat; I needed to change the way I see the world and the way I feel it. I started to work on my energy, meaning I used my heart to put my mind at peace; I began to list all the positive feelings and become more grateful rather than a critic. Instead of pleasing or wondering if I was accepted, I connected to my more profound sense of purpose. Now I best serve my clients by helping them de-specialize or moving away from their internal and external silos. I offer experiential workshops or coachings (body) to help them manage their energy (heart) and learn new forms of mind (mind). They feel a new drive to work and connect to their unique sense of purpose (Soul). I work with managers, leaders, and teams. My mentors are Ken Wilber, Bill Torbert, Robert Kegan, Jennifer Garvey Berger, Otto Scharmer, Marita Fridjhon, Faith Fuller, Peter Senge, and Arnold Mindell.
