Teaching and Guiding Practices for Living an Awakened Life
Wisdom teachers throughout millennia have reminded us that we are living in a dream state. We misunderstand the nature of Reality and believe the world of the ego is all there is. The spiritual journey has always been about waking up.
My focus is teaching and guiding practices for living the awakened life.
In coaching, workshops, and yearlong trainings my work brings together the Enneagram, the practice of Presence, Ancient Ritual Postures, and art as an expression of the personal and collective spiritual journey.
Belinda Gore, Ph.D. is an inspired teacher as well as a psychologist, a coach, and an artist. The basis of her spiritual teaching is a practice that uses ancient ritual postures from the artwork of indigenous people around the world to access the world of spirit. It is the subject of two of her books and much of her art.
She is also an expert in the Enneagram, teaching workshops internationally and virtual courses online. Her area of special interest is the development of personality through relationships as understood through Object Relations theory.
Belinda is also a partner and senior faculty with The Deep Coaching Institute, a coaching school that trains coaches to use the Enneagram and a methodology based on somatic awareness and deep acceptance. The Deep Coaching approach guides clients in becoming more present and thereby experiencing Presence, the basis of the awakened life.

Combining ritual postures with breath and rhythmic sound opens doorways in consciousness through which we can step into an expanded reality. There we encounter the spirits that have been spiritual guides for humanity for millennia. They are my intimate honored friends in the invisible world.
Deep Coaching uses a life-changing methodology to engage Presence, a condition of being aligned with our own true nature, as well as the Enneagram as a tool for revealing deep insights into self-awareness and direction for lasting change.
I was introduced to Soul Collage several years ago and was drawn to the magic of small collages. My own use of this art form is to engage deep wisdom and express it visually, where the sequences of collages unfold like a dream. In collage workshops, inner exploration is expressed through this simple and lovely art form.
Workshops, online classes, and conference presentations are my opportunity to pass along the wisdom and information that are most meaningful to me. My teaching focus, which combines content and experiential learning, is on ancient ritual postures as well as the use of the Enneagram in coaching.
