It’s my pleasure to spotlight Rio Holaday, and her visual offerings, including Visual Coaching.
Rio entered Visual Coach Certification as a talented Graphic Recorder and Facilitator in the Health Equity and Racial Justice arenas. Already knowing how visuals help people to connect at a different level – other ways of knowing.
In a transition, she was looking ‘for more’, specifically information and modeling on how to host important conversations with her clients … about their own transformations. Moving behind the cognitive into intuition and emotion too
It was wonderful to help Rio engage more deeply with individuals, through the arc of my SHIFT-IT tools, including the introduction to parts and somatic approaches – an important complement to linear thinking.
Rio’s specialty niche is helping BIPOC folks “name and tame their shit” (her wording!), in order to pursue and grow healing-centered callings with confidence, and bring us all closer to justice and liberation. She views personal healing work as “structural work”. Getting the internal in order, to imagine a different future than we are in, to make external, systemic change happen.
Thanks so much Rio for finding your way to SHIFT-IT, and so aptly applying the tools in your flair!
