Go into the temple and pray,
But be sure to tether your camel.
~ Ancient proverb
The faculty of bringing back a wandering attention, over and over again, is the very root of judgment, character, and will. No one is compos sui (master of oneself) if he have it not.
~ William James
Bringing back your attention and knowing your intention.
The old proverb above captures the caution that no aspect of life can be left out and treated without appropriate responsibility. Be it our quest for God or our quest for right living, each is served by attending to our attention and managing it properly. William James explains that necessity further.
But just what we pay attention to is shaped by intention, what it is that we're about. Conscious intention is what separates us from all other species. We choose what we want our lives to be about.
Eric Hornak's coaching is centered on helping you coordinate these two most critical functions of your mind. What makes his coaching transformational is his knowing that who you are, what you most deeply value, ignites your life's purpose, shapes what you will pay attention to and how you manage your attention to fulfill your life's intent.
Integration for integrity: It's an inside job across the services he offers. Whether as a Transformational Life Coach, an ADHD Coach or Instructor of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, Eric skillfully introduces you to yourself all over again to align the actions of your outer life with your reason for being here.
Integral inquiry is the practice here. The pages following will illustrate how each aspect of Eric's services are differentiated, but how they inform each other. Wherever you enter the stream of self-inquiry with him, you will receive the gifts of the other two.
So tie up your camel, come into the Temple. When you're done inside, the camel will be there, and Eric will ride with you into the market place and continue the work with you there.
