Guthrie Sayen, PhD, PCC
“Seven days a week, I arise at 5 a.m. for my appointment with God. After washing, I do 30 minutes of yoga postures. Next I sit in silent prayer for 30 minutes. And last I prepare a cup of coffee and read a book on contemplative practice for 30 minutes. These practices lay the foundation for accepting Spirit as a full partner for the rest of the day. They help me remember that every person is divine and every person is human, that is, wounded and liable to unskillful behavior. My calling is to help others accept the full range of their humanity and their divinity. It is sacred work, and I am blessed to do it.”
Few things are more precious to Guthrie Sayen than training new coaches. As he says: “Inviting them to reveal their vulnerability and then helping them to see and feel their deep power within puts them on the path to mastery. They begin coaching with heart and confidence.”
Guthrie has worked with coaches at all stages of their careers, from beginners to masters. He loves introducing coaches to parts of themselves they have disowned. In his private practice, Guthrie works with wounded healers, helping them do for themselves what they are called to do for others. He also helps seekers come into the presence of the Divine, so that they can live their soul's purpose.
Guthrie is a senior member of the faculty at Coaching for Transformation and the co-founder and lead trainer for the coaching certification program at The Graduate Institute. He has also trained coaches at the True Purpose Institute, which develops change agents, messengers, and visionaries. He has created many workshops that foster personal and spiritual evolution.
Guthrie is certified by the International Coach Federation, the Coaches Training Institute, and the True Purpose Institute, and trained in Internal Family Systems, Voice Dialogue, Pyschosynthesis, four archetypes coaching, and Lucid Living. He holds a PhD in history from the University of Connecticut and received his bachelor’s in English from Princeton University.
He enjoys hiking, spiritual friendship, spontaneous improv, drinking premium coffee, and reading poetry to his wife. You can learn more about Guthrie at www.BridgetotheDivine.com.
