Visionary Coaching specializing in the tools of Spiritual Psychology, A Course in Miracles, The Artist’s Way, and Sensual & Intuitive Arts for those who have Awakened and wish to more joyfully Align.

What is Visionary Coaching?

Visionary Coaching is a term Joanne uses to help clients understand, regardless of circumstances, there is always a healing spiritual or Visionary Perspective available to those who believe the purpose of life is learning to evolve in consciousness. When conflict or issues arise, one who is trained in Visionary Perspective, will immediately move into a place of calm and ask the question, “What is the highest Visionary Perspective available to me at this time? How am I being asked to grow?” Focusing on Visionary Perspective moves clients away from blame/cause and into a solution/creative orientation.

I found my session refreshing and exactly what I needed to hear during the current breakdowns I was experiencing. Joanne guided me through a simple, easy to understand conversation about my Soul Line and the incredible journey I’ve been on. We uncovered areas of possibility within my professional life that I wasn’t aware were holding me up. I immediately noticed a shift in my perspective and even my actions which created better results in my communication and less stress about my new career path. I continue to take actions that are in alignment with what we discussed. I highly recommend working with Joanne Menon!

Working with Joanne has had a profound affect on me both personally and professionally. She has lovingly encouraged me to push past my own resistance and more fully into my heart’s desire. Joanne continues to delight me with inspiration. The joy she radiates is uplifting, the nurturing space she holds is comforting, and her clear reflections are motivating. Her vast spiritual context reminds me we are not alone and to get out of my own way. Her gifts are a true blessing.

Although I only knew Joanne for a short time before participating in a Discovery Session, her energy told me it would be a good thing, and it was. Joanne pinpointed key issues with which I currently struggle, without judgment, and with understanding and compassion.

In the busy, exhilarating, stressful, beautiful madness that is preparing for your wedding, it’s easy to forget the importance of quiet, reflection, spirtual preparation, and honoring yourself. Joanne remembered for me. The night before our three day wedding weekend in Ojai, Joanne led a private ceremony to help me do just that: reconnect with what I was really doing there. Joanne created coveted hours of stillness in the midst of an otherwise frenetic weekend. It was an amazing proloque to the coming ceremonies and a gift I would recommend every bride give herself.

Joanne’s gifts as a spiritual mentor are unparalleled. Joanne worked with me to launch my online program. She was able to pinpoint holes in my content offering more depth and cohesion to my program. She was brilliant at editing and tying up the loose ends and offered inventive ways to engage my readers. She encouraging me to find my unique voice, focus on the Higher Purpose of my program, and helped me to more fully open to Spirit so the content could write itself with ease and grace. No more forcing ideas to come out! When I had moments of doubt and fear, she gently guided me through them. When I felt challenged with “What do I write next?” she was there to brainstorm, clarify my intentions, and encourage me to persevere. Sometimes my feelings get tender when someone is editing my writing but Joanne was compassionate, sensitive, and struck the perfect balance of praise and tough love. She has a clear, concise communication style that makes receiving feedback effortless. What a gift I gave myself by working with Joanne.
