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 

2.  Walk and talk around Green Lake (or phone call if you are not in Seattle) to help you tune in to your aspirations and obstacles getting them.  Gift of time to talk, transform difficulties.

No prior experience necessary talking to trees and Great Blue herons, marveling at eagles flying over head and the sun out on a beautiful morning.  


Most people experience shifts in understanding themselves, enjoy more enthusiasm for la vida, deepen awareness in our living Earth.   ( Call or text to connect 206 271 3490 )

It is a sobering thought that the finest act
of love you can perform is not an act of
service but an act of contemplation,
of seeing.
When you serve people you help, support,
comfort, alleviate pain.
When you see them in their inner beauty
and goodness you transform and create.


~ Anthony de Mello

3.  Transform, connect, create:  coaching and trail guide work tuned to you living the life you imagine. 

How do you do that with me? Good question. 

Begin with the end in mind and create a clear vision of where you want to be in 1 month, 90 days, 6 months.

Work toward goals and talk about obstacles that connect you to your future self.

My coaching work mirrors Epicurus' teachings about happiness.

  • Inquiry that leads to transformation of suffering thoughts

What to expect in terms of support and collaboration: 

Drop in for a "truth blossom" which is what a few people have said about our work together.

PS:  I volunteer with low income and homeless people and love helping people.  I offer a sliding scale.

4.  Leadership coaching facilitating deep listening and helping leaders in your organization deepen connection, ignite creativity, curiosity and spark inquiry. 


Thought partnering with you results include inner peace and improved effectiveness meeting work goals, conflict resolution and nonviolent communication. 

Do you run a small business or green non profit with 2 to 10 directors?

Presence and listening is the ground for transformation.  In the present moment is where we have the most influence about creating our future.

I'll teach you how to grow more emotionally intelligent, first toward yourself.

5.  Conscious Collective, The Art of Possibility:  small group work focused on meditation, breath work, exploring limiting beliefs and creating powerful visions that inspire sustainable abundance, love and success in your life.

The beauty and light that emerge from communal work ignites transformation.

I work with small business owners who run restaurants and architecture firms.  Artists, activists and entrepreneurs who want to change the world find inner peace and spiritual practices that help you turn your dreams into reality.  The extra energy you get can catapult you into action toward your dreams.


I coach executive leadership coaches and psychotherapists.  


Vision and values:  I love working with people who are committed to growing a greener more just world.   How can I help you create the green new deal for our people and planet?

How can I help make a radical reset from scarcity and fear to tap into sustained loving abundance? 

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.
