Trail guide helping you discover courage and strength to live the life you imagine.


Are you crossing a threshold in your life?  Ready to take a big leap?

Timothy Colman was born to do this work. With a great breadth and depth of psychological, spiritual, and intellectual knowledge; animated by a dynamic curiosity and passion for life, Tim facilitates non-judgmental, eye-opening dialogue and reflection, midwifing new possibilities and personal growth with insight, wisdom, and compassion. You will be enriched, nourished, and enlarged through your interactions.


Alexandra Halsey, writer, editor & tech guru

In just a few months Timothy Colman helped me turn my losses into opportunities and my skills into a career that feeds my soul. His insight, experience, and ability to go deep into areas that were keeping me stuck, shifted the way I see my future and catapulted my confidence, (plus I lost 15 lbs and got in shape along the way). This is what life coaching is all about!


Blair deLaubenfels, international public speaker


Are you working for a greener more just world?


I offer presence and curiosity, a sense of humor with five ways to connect: 

1. Metta Meditation circle Monday evenings @ East West Books @ 7:30 PM.  (In NE Seattle's Roosevelt Square above Whole Foods.) Come join in learning simple, effective breath practices, energy focus and loving kindness meditation.  Purpose is to be together in a small circle who hold space for each other connecting to cultivate inner peace and joy, serve others.  Leave with short term practices, learn to swim, learn that water holds you up, that silence is your friend.  

2.  Walk and talk around Green Lake (or phone call if you are not in Seattle) to help you tune in our beautiful natural world to your true nature and loving presence.  Gift of time to drop into your life

Tim is a loving soul. Walking around Green Lake with him is less like coaching and more like a meditation. Every tree, every leaf, every bird brings a new idea, concept or awareness that Tim surfaces with compassion and tenderness. Working with Tim doesn’t feel like work, it’s more a kind of positive nurturing in a beautiful natural setting.
