Do you know the source of your struggles and stress?

What if our dissatisfaction originates within ourselves rather than external circumstances? And what if the way to end suffering is to go on the inner journey of self-exploration – together?

This journey, if we are willing to take it, is a spiraling inward, bringing mindfulness, presence, and attention to what is alive inside. Vulnerability and courage is required to bring healing to old wounds – and to reveal hidden reservoirs of compassion, new sources of calm and creativity, of freedom and strength, of abundance and joy…

Would you like to be supported as you deepen into emotional awareness, authentic power, healing and transformation?


Meet Barbara C Wiebe BEd, CPC, Certified Life Coach, NVC Facilitator, offering communication workshops, NVC practice groups and Coaching for Transformation, based in in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Barbara‘s approach to the inner work of attuning to what is alive inside is supported by her dedication to mindfulness, meditation, and Yoga — the spiritual journey of self-examination. She also draws on her extensive training in Nonviolent Communication, NVC, a proven road-map, powerful principles and practices to help experience the shift from struggle and stress to harmony and peace.

Barbara C. Wiebe, BEd, CPC      

Barbara with Foster Walker, her beloved life partner of 20 years.

Certified Professional Coach, NVC Facilitator, long-time mindfulness and yoga practitioner, Barbara blends her extensive training in NVC, Nonviolent Communication, together with her love of self-inquiry, supported by Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Marshall Rosenberg and other key mentors. Barbara is currently an enthusiastic student of Interpersonal Neurobiology, attachment theory, and trauma healing. It all inspires her passion to share the journey of transforming ourselves, our relationships, and the world we live in.

Barbara says: “The work I offer arises from faith in our capacity to bring compassionate warmth into our hearts and into all our relationships. I enjoy interactive approaches that cultivate attunement with our inner life, how to bring attention to our feelings, our unresolved hurts, our stories, our deepest longings… It is in the practice of embodied, inter-relational mindfulness that we reclaim our humanity – and our intimacy with all life.

Here are some quotes worth contemplating:

“All you need to is to be aware of your feelings and thoughts – as they happen. This is not really a ‘doing’ but an alert ‘seeing’ … the shift from thinking to awareness.” ~Eckhart Tolle

“Believing what you fear makes it true for you, and that doesn’t make it true.” ~Byron Katie

“Truth is found in the mirror of relationship.”~J. Krishnamurti

“Bringing about peaceful change begins with working on our own mindsets,
on the way we view ourselves and others, on the way we get our needs met.”
   ~ Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg, founder of the Center for Nonviolent Communication

“Our species is undergoing an unprecedented transformation. The determination to explore every aspect of consciousness, and to cultivate what contributes most to Life, is replacing the drive to bury painful emotions. This requires emotional awareness.”
~ Gary Zukav and Linda Francis, The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness
