“I attended both the Holding Space for Yourself, and Holding Space for Others retreats at Linwood House in BC, and am forever altered by the experience. Heather is a master space holder that was constantly demonstrating what she was teaching at all times. The classes gave me tools to better care for myself and others through the implementation of exercises and wise counsel. Heather has a gentle way of encouraging participation and sharing that allows you to learn not only from her, but from the other participants as we all have life experiences and talents worthy of sharing. I walked away from this soul-expanding experience with a warmth in my heart and new life-long friends. I would highly recommend a class with Heather!” Michelle Dieger
“My time with Heather has become deeply important for how I reflect on my place in the world. I originally sought out coaching after being accepted into a Doctorate programme, but something was ‘off’ about it for me. With Heather I got so much more than I bargained for! She has helped me to integrate ideas, experiences, memories and dreams that have felt too ephemeral to grasp, let alone make sense of on my own. It is turning into an unexpected voyage into myth and spirit and divine bone-level memory.” – Sas Petherick, self-doubt researcher and coach
“Creative Writing for Self Discovery was a lovely class. Heather created a safe, comfortable non-judgemental environment where everyone was welcome to participate. The class was fun, varied, offered opportunities for health and healing and motivated me to put pen to paper. I am very much looking forward to the next session.” – Ainsley Cunningham
“I really embraced the coaching sessions with Heather. My first session was all tears. I released so many layers of pain and she was always intuned to asking me the right question. Always calm and attentive to my needs – I felt enveloped by her love and her wisdom. After my first session I felt something huge had shifted in me. She made me aware of how courageous of a woman I was and just how far I had come on my journey. I always knew I had gifts and strengths but now I was aware of them in my heart. My second session was also very empowering. She recommended I do work on mandalas. I had no idea how much I would enjoy working on the Mandala Journaling. Something in me emerged. With only a few of her coaching sessions I feel I have grown leaps and bounds. My mind was expanding, I was evolving. I told Heather how I admired her work and what a beautiful woman she was. I also thanked her for coming into my life and how I was honored to meet such a beautiful vibrant woman of depth and beauty and she replied: “I did not simply come into your life Marie, you attracted me – you attract what you are!” – Marie Lafantaisie
“Heather Plett never ceases to amaze and inspire me, and her most recent work, How to Lead with Your Paint Clothes On, took my respect for her to another level. Not only is this work insightful and articulate (as Heather’s work always is), but it also happens to be important and groundbreaking. Her exploration of feminine wisdom has informed this e-book, to be sure, as has the artist in her, and it also happens to just be good “business sense” in our changing and evolving world. Whether you lead within the context of a traditional company or are looking for new ways to lead yourself in your own endeavors, Heather’s e-book is filled to the brim with the sort of help many of us have been waiting for.” – Christine Claire Reed
“For a teamcoach and systemic constallator it’s important to provide ‘holding space’ in a group so to create an atmosphere of safety and space. This to let arise growth and especially space so that the invisible can be made visible. The training to Holding Space coach/ facilitator from Heather Plett, fits perfectly with this. Heather knows, with her extensive ‘blended’ learning environment, how to bring me further with this difficult and somewhat elusive subject ‘Holding Space’. The combination of 1,5 hours of lessons each week, coaching, extensive theory and the exchange through Facebook and a buddy on the basis of exercises gives me the opportunity to make the transfer to real life practice, and working with teams. She give me mostly catchy and imagining examples which I can apply in my team coaching (for example to walk the Labyrint as a team). I see how the ideas appeals to organisations and managers I coach and supervise currently.
“Beforehand I was wondering how the training would work out with 60 people around the world through the digital learning program. Before it seemed to be a bit impersonal for me and I was wondering if I might drop out during the lessons. However, Heather creates a Holding Space with her organisations whereby I experience a strong proximity and where I look forward to every lesson.
“In short, I would certainly recommend this training and I think that the program is a possibility to spread ‘Holding Space’ further throughout the world.” – Annelies Meijers
“Having taken part in the Holding Space programme January 2018, I decided to continue the work I had started there by participating in the first presentation of A Deeper Quest. For me it has been all I needed and much more.
“I have a habit of acquiring knowledge and then sitting with it while I make my mind up what to do – for way too long. Sometimes I take course after course and then ‘don’t have time’ to use the skills at all – imagine!
“Deeper Quest has pushed me to use the skills and deepened understanding of myself that I now have. My courage has been tested, as has my willingness to step up and stand behind who I now know myself to be. I am closer to living the life I know I am capable of than I have ever been before. And I am filled with gratitude for all of the experiences the programme has brought me, comfortable and otherwise.” – Linda Pentland
