Live a Life

Without Regrets!

I’m Ana Verzone, a Buddhist Life Coach that helps yogis and wanna-be Buddhas make the most of this one, precious life.
 

My clients learn how to design a lifestyle of true freedom, inside and out. This happens in 2 powerful steps: CLARITY + COURAGE

 

CLARITY

I walk you through my proven system so you get crystal clear about the life you want to create and how you want to show up in the world. Confusion and “I don’t know” are wastes of your mental energy. You can’t create it if you can’t imagine it, so we dig deep and find out what you want. As you can imagine, this part is super fun;)

 

COURAGE

Then we work together to cultivate the courage you need to do what it takes to make it all happen. You see – things don’t happen just from wanting them really, really badly. They happen from taking action. At first, this feels scary – which is why it takes courage, not confidence.

After you’ve taken action enough times and shown up for yourself, you start to cultivate deep, unshakeable confidence and resilience. I like to call this Ziji – a Tibetan word for radiant, inner confidence. After you Ziji Up, you look out to the world and say, “Bring it on!” You’re ready for it all. Does this sound a little scary…but tempting? All good things do;) And I’m with you the whole way.

In my programs, you’ll not only learn about creative career + lifestyle design, but also practical tools that apply mindfulness and other brain + body science to real life, when you’re off the meditation cushion (if you ever got on it in the first place). Like when you’re stuck in stress, anxiety and overwhelm, arguing with your partner, yelling at your kids, over-drinking after work, gaining weight, vegging out on Netflix, and eating like crap…all the juicy stuff! You know – those times that you don’t get to hit the pause button and meditate;)

When you learn these tools, you get to start to create true, lasting freedom – before you’re enlightened. 

Does this mean you have to be Buddhist or a hard-core meditator to work with me? Hell no! As the Dalai Lama says, “Do not try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.”  

Why should you work with me?

For most of my clients, Freedom is their #1 priority. This isn’t just about their passports, mountain adventures, or road trips. They also want freedom from the suffering that’s going on in their heads. The anxiety, stress, overwhelm, low self-confidence and general funk. And they know deep down that they can have freedom from this too.

They also want to create an unconventional life that they can be proud of. This means they value authenticity and yearn to know and be their true selves – without giving a sh*t about what others think (in a good way).

I should mention most of my clients also have a naughty and adventurous streak (defined on their own terms, of course;). This means this is a judgment-free zone. I’ve heard {almost} everything. We do #epichshit. And they don’t care that I swear. A lot. Especially when I’m tired.

If you’re like, “Oh hellz yes, that’s me,”  then just sign up already!   

Because sister, you just realized you’re a Freedom Junkie – just like me and the other peeps in my tribe.

After working with me, you’ll know you’re living life to its fullest with integrity and compassion. You won’t be wondering if you’re wasting your time on this epic planet. Or if you’ll have major regrets. Learning to live full-on is the most courageous thing you can do. And trust me: it is absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt worth it!

I’m a Master Certified Life Coach that has over 23 years of experience guiding people on personal growth journeys in the wilderness and in the comfort of their own homes. So you can say I’ve got some street cred. I’ve been a dedicated – and imperfect – mindfulness meditation and Buddhist practitioner since 1991 and have studied under amazing teachers from various lineages. I attended my first month-long retreat in 1995, and was introduced to Insight Meditation and Vipassana teachings in 2004. I’ve made soooo many mistakes on my spiritual journey, and learned a bunch of tools on the way that I want to share with you. They work!

I don’t pretend to be a guru. I’m walking this path with you – and I happen know some shortcuts that’ll help keep you from making the same mistakes.

Some signs I’m also a multi-passionate (if you haven’t figured that out already): I also used to be a professional international climbing guide for 10 years. No shit! I’ve guided people through their fears in very real and dangerous moments on intense expeditions. Some of my clients call me a Soul Midwife, because as a nurse-midwife, I’ve literally delivered over a thousand babies all over the world, ushering their souls into this life – and as a death doula I have been with people on their deathbed, learning intimately what they have found is most important in life. I have an intimate understanding of these sacred transitions, and use what I’ve learned to help you live your best life. Read more about me here.

After all that, you can see why clarity + ziji that Tibetan word for true, radiant, inner confidence – are my jam. I’ve seen how confusion and low self-confidence cause so much suffering in people’s lives: anxiety, not being themselves, people-pleasing and not feeling like their life on the outside is in alignment with who they are on the inside.

I know how to help you dig deep and find the courage to show up authentically, with integrity, and do what it takes from a source that is deep within you. I teach my clients how to do some serious mindset shifts so they can cultivate the clarity + courage to create the life of their dreams – one that’s lived without regrets.

FREEDOM ON A BUDGET Freedom Junkie Tips for How to Live a Life of Fun, Passion, and Freedom Without Going Broke

DO YOU FEEL A CALL TO ADVENTURE? One of the classic stages of the Hero’s Journey is the Call to Adventure, where a person stops living an average life, the separation from society and life as you know it begins, and things start to get interesting.

WHY DO-OVERS ARE THE BEST That cliché about “today is a new day” is totally true…even though totally annoying when someone saying it to you in the moment. Click to learn why.

WHY ADVENTURE IS ESSENTIAL TO YOUR EVOLUTION When you do new things, when your mind is asked by necessity – on a regular basis – to change it up and not fall into the same pattern, it is more malleable. We tend to feel most alive when we are on the edge, when we are stretching ourselves. This is how we evolve.

How to Choose a Life Coach I was hanging out with some girlfriends sipping my fizzy berry drink (doing my seasonal cleansing, baby!) and chatting about exposés coming out lately around less-than-ethical coaches that use age-old techniques of manipulating people into forking over life savings or becoming cult-like followers of their programs. One of my amigas asked, “But how are people […]
This Thought Will Change Everything I just got back from an awesome business conference in Dallas. I love going to these events because first, they scare the shit out of me. I start to dream even bigger, which put my brain into fight-or-flight more because I feel kind of maxed out where I am already. I’m already booking most hours […]
This Bucket List is More Important When we create bucket lists, we’re often thinking about mountains to climb, countries to visit, or other epic adventures to have. It makes sense that these things come up when we ask ourselves, “What do I want to make sure I do before I die?” After all – these things are exhilarating and form memories […]
