workshops for wellness and lifeTruce’s duo coaching passions for health and for spiritual living cater to two audiences — those who are seeking a revolutionary, unforced approach to achieving physical wellness, as well as those who are looking to align their beliefs and/or faith with practical daily living given any circumstance.

Workshops for Mind, Body, and Spirit

Since transformation is about discovering and taking new stands in many areas of life, Truce also enjoys coaching clients to achieve fuller careers, more peaceful relationships, creative expression, and more. All areas nurture each other. So although life coaching workshops may highlight a specific topic, the transformational distinctions apply in a myriad of striking ways. These include themes such as: acceptance, perseverance, commitment, communication, reconciliation, and integrity.

Truce workshops are offered on-site at your location (particularly convenient if your business is in Northern Virginia or surrounding metro DC areas) and customized to your group‘s interests — from single-session workshops and week-long retreats to teleseminars and webinars.

Popular workshops are listed below. Please contact Sarah for scheduling details.
