Empowering Changemakers to Become the Mapmakers of their Visions

Testimonials

“Naraya was a godsend – a real turning point for me. After meeting with her just a few times, I felt everything just effortlessly click into place because I had so much more clarity and confidence.

Her wisdom and insight continue to astound me in their depth – and I know she gets this from having walked the path before me. I am now in the process of launching my first public Teleseminar and feeling so thrilled and fulfilled with my work.

My advice to anyone trying to unfold their Life Purpose is you do not have to suffer this alone…it will go so much easier and faster with a guide, and Naraya is extraordinarily gifted at this work.  I cannot recommend her highly enough!”

-Karen Clothier, Founder www.WiseWomenRule.com

“I have felt stuck professionally for several years, despite a concerted effort through therapy, workshops, etc to get clear on what my work path should be. In only a few months, Naraya has helped me to open to some areas that I had been blind to, and I am clearly making progress towards my goal of realizing how to manifest my spiritual experiences through my work.

Naraya combines a meticulous listening ability with her years of spiritual practice to really probe towards opening the connection with my inner voice and energy source. I highly recommend seeing her if you are needing some help in integrating your spiritual, emotional, and work worlds.”

– Gary Pace MD MPH

“Working with Naraya as a coach and consultant has been transformational. I began my tenure at Ten Thousand Waves Spa when morale was low and our quarterly meetings yielded 10 therapists. Naraya helped me create an agenda and develop meeting plans that encouraged participation and positive feedback. She facilitated the first meetings and then coached me so I could facilitate the meetings with confidence.

Our meeting participation went from 10 to 100. We discussed controversial topics in a positive productive manner and were able to get therapists to help plan and implement change. I feel the culture at TTW has changed, therapists feel they have a voice. I am grateful to Naraya for her passion and guidance and for the skills she has taught me which I will continue to use throughout my career.”

-Courtney Morris, Director, Ten Thousand Waves Spa, Santa Fe, NM

“My husband and I sought out Naraya’s support during a particularly stressful and chaotic time in our personal and financial lives. We came to her feeling utterly overwhelmed and scattered, and we left feeling deeply understood, connected to ourselves and each other, and much more clear about our next steps.

Naraya brings a rare combination of compassionate enthusiasm, calm presence & focused realism to her listening and guidance.  Should you ever feel stuck, confused or in need of direction, we can highly recommend Naraya and her profoundly practical yet joyfully enlivening Journey Mapping process.”

Naraya’s Journey Mapping totally changed my life! I was so stuck and lost including the unspeakable, tragic death of my daughter. I left my job as a medical social worker and wanted to find a new purpose, but had no idea where to begin.

I also needed to change my living situation… Just 2 months after the course ended, I now have the new condo of my dreams and am about to start a new business.

Naraya’s compassionate and supportive manner along with her innovative ideas created so much new energy and helped me to relax into the mystery and notice the clues around me and regain the confidence to take action and move forward.

-Sherry Greene LICSW, Life Coach, Boston, MA.

Journey Mapping gave me so much clarity around what is of #1 importance and what my heart desires and less loss of energy through worry, contradictory thinking and mental dead-ends.”

– Matthew Sherrill, Ashland, Oregon

I got so inspired about my own potential & direction, as I witnessed you, Naraya as the facilitator. Like I said in the closing circle, I really honor your clarity, authenticity, vulnerabilty and deep listening to the energies of the collective group and the individuals.

-Lianne Aponte, Santa Fe, NM

“First and foremost, Naraya is a good listener. She pays attention not only to her client’s words but to the subtext beneath the words and knows how to lead the client to his or her own recognition of long held beliefs and behavior patterns that need to be acknowledged and possibly changed.

Working with Naraya has lead me to both the acknowledgment level and the change level, and , most importantly to the level of  making  small, consistent, conscious changes in life-style and direction that I do not abandon under stress. Those of you who are interested in improving your self-awareness and level of social consciousness would do well, and be blessed, by working with her.”

-J.L Ph.DHigher Education Administration

My Private Retreat with Naraya was life-changing. I descended to discover the depths of my fears and ascended to glimpse the freedom that awaits by living life as the real me as opposed to a scared child who lives in frequent fear that he’ll never reach the expectations of his inner critic.  Naraya brings an amazing, maybe even unique, combination of skills to this most personal undertaking.  In short, it was an amazing transformational experience.”

Naraya Stein has an uncanny gift for building bridges between people.

It’s a beautiful process that allows you to unfold you, just where you happen to be in your life. I feel so much lighter and so at peace. Thank you!”.

“I have attended Naraya Stein’s personal growth workshops for many years. Her teaching style is inspired and visionary with well-conceptualized intentions. The space she created was not only aesthetic but was designed to enhance creativity and safety for the participants.

One aspect I was especially impressed with was her ability to bring everyone fully into the process and the group energy would build in a surprisingly short period of time. We shared, danced, wrote, drew, sang, and walked in nature to deepen our experiences. Adjectives that express this work for me are “exploratory, penetrating and provocative” allowing for all the joy and sorrow of my life to move into the “oneness”.”

-Loretta Armer, Ed.D., Elder, Psychologist and Yoga Teacher

“Naraya’s coaching work allows for integration of the practical and spiritual aspects of my life and my vision. She assists me in organizing my dreams into a reality so that what I am doing and who I am are in perfect alignment. I have worked with both professional and personal coaches for the past three years and I will say that Naraya is a true leader, and I highly recommend her service to anyone who is ready for expansive and transformational growth.”

Dr. Tracey Wright, D.C.

“Naraya is a gifted and dedicated coach and facilitator.  Her own journey has woven numerous wisdom traditions into her beingness. She’s both capable and fully transparent.  She’s able to gently guide others on their own journey. She believes that every person has the potential to manifest their full potential in the world. She is committed to co-creating that possibility with her clients – individuals and teams. Her knowledge of systems thinking helps an organizing effort align its unique contribution with the unique contributions of its members.”

-Stephanie Nestlerode, Founding partner Omega Point International Consulting, www.omegapoint.net

Naraya cares deeply for peopleShe is impeccably committed to helping people step more fully into their essential gifts and contribute these to the world. Naraya embodies integrity in all her relationships.  When working with individuals she never looses sight of either the well being of the individual nor of the communities and organizations of which that person is a member. Another of Naraya’s many gifts is her ability to listen deeply and reflect back a synthesis of what she has heard in a way that invites people to the next level of insight and inquiry. I am honored to count her among my friends and colleagues.”
