Hi, I'm Dawn Kotzer.
I live on the shore of a northern Saskatchewan lake beside the Canadian Boreal Forest.I love where I live.
I'm a non-linear chick. I like to follow my nose. It appears I have a good nose as it's led me to a life filled with good vibrations and whole hearted success.
We were all born knowing the language of our soul.
Over time and space, through circumstance and life's confusion,
we can lose connection to soul song.
Yet even though we may feel lost in a inner wilderness,
our soul song remains rooted, grounded, patient and alert for its cue
to once again sing out loud and clear and help us chart our through-line.
At age 25, I bootstrapped my first retail storefront— a full service floral design and decor business. Since then I've turned my initial success into a series of diverse enterprises in retail, design, organic agriculture, life, creativity and biz coaching. I now life my be real- find freedom life.
Has it all been easy, smooth sailing, linear and forever forward moving?
Nope. I'm not going to lie to you.
This experience called life has been a trip—peaks and valleys,
ups and downs, good times, bad times, brilliant decisions and perfect disasters.
I have grown to deeply appreciate and cultivate curiosity, good humour;
self kindness, tenacity, owning my strengths and celebrating my resilience.
For me, patience has become an act of audacity,
vulnerability has grown more courage, being more introverted than has delivered
room for ingenious traction and self esteem has taken root.
As an Inner Wilderness Guide I help creatively spirited beings who want to
show up for themselves explore wholehearted living, clear a path and blaze a trail to meaningful success in their daily life, work, business and play.
Clients regard me as a trusted witness with the ability to hear what’s present yet unspoken.
Described as relentlessly compassionate and creatively ingenious with the rare ability to effectively span the line between whimsy and hard reality, I don't follow templates or rigid systems when working with clients.
I do provide a non-judgmental, safe, trusted space with lots of room for curiosity and laughter.
When you look for guidance, I will offer you guidance.
When you look for witness to your humanity, I will be your witness.
When you need to ask questions, to ponder life, dreams and goals out loud, know that you will be heard.
When you want a space to lighten up and engage with your inner genius, PLaYful exploration will set the tone.
When you want help with the nuts and bolts of putting foundations beneath your dreams, all my tools and experience are on hand.
You are the expert of your life experience. I follow your lead.
