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.

But We Are Not Prisoners

Today we're gettin' Sacred with Rainer Maria Rilke. 
  On the sacred art and suffering of doing your life's work.
These days it's not so uncommon to celebrate your friend's upcoming nuptials by dressing her like a giant penis, parading her through town and relentlessly attempting to humiliate her...we're trying something else.  
  Alright, so this is less of a Sacred reading and more of whine and moan…but an important one.
