Coaching Resources

We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming training and supporting your growth as a conscious leader. 

From left to right with our inspiring leader and mentor, Grace: 

Meghan Neeley is a mentor for women who are emerging entrepreneurs.

She is a certified coach and a licensed Desire Map facilitator. She works with clients internationally. Meghan lives in Santa Cruz, California with her husband, son and fur-babies, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. You can see her website here and email her at

Sarah Hughes is a creativity coach, supporting you in realizing your full creative potential by addressing the wounds from your past and nurturing the seeds of your vision for the future. What wants to be offered in the world through you? What are you here to create? 

Working with Sarah, you will feel her nonjudgmental and patient awareness. Sessions with her feel like entering a big space where the paradoxes can be held and all parts of you are welcome—the light and the dark, what you want to show and what you want to hide, the shiny self and the mess, your courage and your fear. Her compassion is informed by experiences in her personal life and extended family, which include issues of depression, anxiety, addiction, codependency, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and unexpected loss of loved ones. She lovingly calls herself “the fall-apart coach,” encouraging the veils of illusion, denial, and the story that you tell yourself about who you are to fall apart more and more so that the gem of what’s true now can be revealed. She also has an uncanny ability to discern action steps for ideas and projects, drawing out your own inner knowing and clarity about what wants to happen next.

Her education includes over 750 hours of coaching training with Grace Clayton, over 500 hours of yoga training with Janet Stone and James Miller, intensive music study at the School for Music Vocations, and bachelor’s degrees in Music (classical piano) and English Literature from UC Santa Cruz. Spiritually, she is a practitioner of Buddhism in the Soto Zen lineage and a progressive Christian, affiliated with the United Church of Christ denomination. Along with her work as a coach, she is a pianist, vocalist, and singer-songwriter. She lives in Berkeley, CA with her beloved fiancé and calico cat. You can e-mail her at

Ali Palisca coaches leaders that are changing the world. Ali is devoted to a win-for-all world where each individual is driven by purpose and committed to living in harmony with the natural elements. She believes that on-purpose leaders equipped with consciousness tools will impact the trajectory of the quality of life on earth. With 20 years of spiritual practice combined with emotional intelligence and consciousness tools, Ali brings playfulness, compassion, and penetrating truth telling to her clients. She mentors in self-awareness, discovery and release of unhealthy patterns, and tools to support and shape the emerging leader. Ali challenges her clients to bring their fullness forward; to play all-out and face and change what is no longer in service to their greater vision. Ali’s experiences and work in hospice have fortified her exploration with clients in the realms of death, dying, and grief. Born and raised in Yosemite National Park, Ali is a lover of nature and thrives on vital nourishment of food, community, humor, and spiritual practice. You can see her website here and email her at
