Guided Experiential &
Through my work with hundreds of men just like you, I have learned what truly helps men succeed. The LINKT methodology is the Eternal Principles signature experiential and relational approach to recovery. It combines traditional therapeutic approaches, classical recovery teachings, coaching principles and other techniques. We use these principles to form a genuine connection, which is the indispensable requirement to convert someone from a path of addiction and self-destruction to a path of recovery and fulfillment. Through relationships we learn and develop, and the relationship itself acts as the vehicle for growth and change. In developing an empowering connection with my clients, together we are able to catalyze personal evolution. If I am LINKT with my client, then we have a relationship that can help guide them to recovery.
Together, we will use our relationship – one based on mutual trust and shared action – as a laboratory for your understanding and development. And because men learn primarily through experience (instead of just talking), all of the work we do is in action in the community. I am not interested in simply talking to you about your feelings and your problems, although we will do some of that. I am more excited to help you get into action and move towards your dream life. I serve as an experienced guide who will help you learn how to move beyond the obstacles keeping you from achieving your goals.
I must embody the values and virtues that I are attempting to help the client internalize. I aim to inspire them through leadership-by-example. It is a way of being and relating that generates inspiration and growth.
"IKIGAI" OR INNER DRIVE
Ikigai is Japanese for "reason for being.” Men must have a guiding purpose; a path in life that they connect to and enjoy. I have learned that choosing and traveling a path in life is vital to your growth. The path you are on in life gives birth to you as a man.
Total honesty with the client is an essential part of growth. It creates a real relationship. Hearing, facing and speaking the truth opens the door to reality. I aim to be completely honest with my clients.
All learning must take place in action. Men learn through experience, not through talking. Talk alone does not accomplish the deeper change we are searching for. We respect all non-verbal learning. Use and exchange of energy is the crucial ingredient to growth and transformation.
We do things together until they are strong enough internally to take action alone. As the Guide becomes involved in the client's life and "gets into their orbit,” we can start to positively influence their course and help them align with their true nature and purpose. This is a process of evolving togetherness, where presence becomes meaningful relationship.
when applied correctly, these principles interact to produce the one indispensable force that is required to succeed on any path: The Life Drive. This is the force that instills a man with the commandment that he wants to live, he has to live, he can live, and he will live!
Once this force is ignited, the self-destructive behavior falls away.
