Chela Davison

I am a Certified Integral Coach™ living in Vancouver. My passion for human development is borderline obsessive. My calling is aptly expressed when working with others around their deepest ache and that which matters most. I am interested in community, in bringing people together to share in and support each other around both the ordinariness and profundity of life’s journey.

I am a mother of a gorgeous little boy for whom my most precious energy and best work is reserved. The rest of what I’ve got is up for grabs, come and get some at In terms of writing here at Beams and Struts, I’m most interested in exploring what it takes to consciously evolve individually and collectively and I revel in challenging our confounding culture. I really dig writing and love it here, being part of this family is an honour.

  Integral Coaching™ rocks worlds and then transforms them + a little plug for an upcoming Vancouver event.

Eat Food. Taking responsibility and leadership.

If we truly are what we eat, I’d rather be a curvy little Beet or a complicated, layered Artichoke than an over-processed, highly packaged, substance less, edible product. How ‘bout you?

  Gaslighting...a tactic...or form or psychological abuse that causes the victim to question or doubt their memory or perception. Are women really overly emotional nutcases? Or have many ‘crazy bitches’ simply been gaslit?
