I love how your mind works, Pace. You get underneath cliches and assumptions and it’s so refreshing. What’s more, you do it with loving kindness — like a true path maker/finder/seeker.
Testimonials from Pathfinding clients:
When I began the Pathfinding Program I was ready to give up my lifelong dream to write a novel. Now I’m writing again and happy about it. Having fun, too!
I felt very safe with Pace. She got me to try exercises with her I never, ever would have done with someone else. And I loved her wise and kind insights. She helped me to look at situations so differently I would be speechless for a few minutes and then only murmur, “Wow!” or “Ahhhh…. yes!”
Thank you, Pace! You were what I needed at exactly the right time!
When I signed up for the Pathfinding Program, I felt like butterflies were constantly exploding in my stomach. Now I have confidence that I have the answers. I would totally not have believed you six months ago if you told me I would feel this way.
Pace Smith is head and shoulders above most coaches I’ve had the privilege to work with and train. Somewhere in the intersection of her brilliant, lightning-fast mind and her enormously compassionate and open heart, Pace will help you find your path and live in alignment with your best self.
My favorite thing about working with Pace is how she helps you connect with Spirit. No, wait, it’s how carefully she listens. Or maybe it’s her deep intuitive ability to go to the heart of the matter. Really, it’s all of it. It’s the magic of being held in her capable and trustworthy hands. It’s finally getting out of your own way. It’s the deep reassurance that everything is going to Be Just Fine. Do yourself a favor, and hire her immediately.
Pace, you have mad skillz as a coach. I signed up for the Pathfinder Program because I had this vague sense that my business needed more of my heart in it, but I didn’t really know what that meant or what to do about it. Six months later, I now have reliable access to my heart. I have trust and faith that my heart knows where to go, and how to lead my business in the right direction. The strength of your faith is very reassuring. You’re a constant, strong anchor. You have direct access to this constant source of, well… Source. I always felt like you gave me support and direction, and now I feel clear and confident about my own direction. Thank you. You inspire me.
I just finished my second Pathfinder Coaching session with Pace, and I can’t restrain myself from spinning out a testimonial.
I’ve had the privilege of working with—and for—some of the top strategists, coaches, consultants, intuitives, and clairvoyants in the world. (I’m a lucky duck).
In my humble, unbiased opinion, Pace is very, very special. From the first few minutes of our consultation call, I felt a sense of being profoundly witnessed. When she paused to consider whether or not she could, in fact, help me—a critical step that all-too-many coaches skip!—I knew I was dealing with a person of ethics, integrity and self-awareness. A service provider devoted to, uh, service. Pretty revolutionary.
Pace’s coaching style is conscious, but not calculated. I never feel like she’s simply planning what to say next, to fill the silence. I always feel like she’s listening—deeply. And the insights that pour out are nothing short of miraculous.
In two hours with Pace, I’ve grasped murky patterns that have muddled up my romantic relationships since—forever. I’ve learned the difference between self-confidence and self-love, and I’m (beginning to) learn how to close the gap. Starting with shiny baubles, daily rituals and self-dates. Score!
By the end of our third session, I expect to gain several superpowers, such as X-ray vision, telekinesis and levitation. Not really. But…probably.
Are you conflicted about whether to sign up for Pace Smith’s Pathfinding adventure at this time? I need you to know that I was a bit conflicted myself. Do yourself a favor. Go for it. It will be one of the best investments in yourself and your future that you could possibly make.
How can I make such a bold statement to would-be Pathfinders? What you will find is a true refuge. A place of peaceful exhilaration. A group of people who are a lot like you–full of questions, fears, hopes, dreams, resistance, and most of all–love.
You can’t go wrong signing up for any of Pace and Kyeli’s offerings. I fully believe that Pathfinders is the next evolutionary step to living an authentic life in a better world.
Before I started working with you, I was angry, stressed, and caught up in my own world. Now I feel a completely different energy from this city. I feel way more peaceful – I have a deeper sense of awareness, and I’m so grateful for it. I’m not taking things personally anymore, and it’s such a relief!
I signed up for this program because I don’t want to go through the next 50 years with the same sort of blinders on that I had in the first 50. I’ve been drifting along the path, and now I want to create my own path.
I will be eternally grateful to you for the work we’ve done over the past few months. It’s been brilliant. I feel a change. It’s a new beginning, and I’m really curious and excited to see where it goes.
In working with you, Pace, I’ve learned to trust myself. When we started working together, I was all caught up in my head. Now I’m in touch with my heart, regularly and deeply.
I’m not totally left brained or right, I’m right down the middle. I’m a Jill of All Trades. I felt bad that I didn’t have this one major talent, this obvious “THIS IS YOUR CALLING” sign lit up in neon lights.
But one of the things I loved most about working with you is that you have a way of getting to know each person and learning what works for them. We tried lots of new things, and I never had an “Eww, that was awful” experience. You’re so intuitive that it just comes to you. You never second-guessed yourself, you just pulled out whatever was needed from Pace’s Bag of Magic. And that’s what I needed – a little bit of lots of different kinds of magic.
If we hadn’t been working together, I would be hating myself right now. I would be curled up in a ball, grieving (or avoiding grieving) and hating myself. You helped me through that. You weren’t afraid to witness any of that grief. You leaned into the discomfort, you helped me sit with my feelings instead of judging them. And now I’ve come out the other side and I’m taking a leap of faith.
Now I have that boldness and clarity that was the reason I signed up, because I have that self-trust that I didn’t have before. You’ve been a true blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The Pathfinding Program has been helpful for me in ways I didn’t expect it to be.
When I think back to when we started, I had never done meditation before, I wasn’t used to checking in with myself, so I didn’t know what it meant to be wholehearted. I didn’t know how to get in touch with my heart, it was like I was tapping the mic and saying, “Is this thing on?” What I really appreciate about working with you is that you come from the same logical background that I come from, and that helps me understand the emotional and spiritual side of things in a way that doesn’t make me afraid of it.
Learning to observe myself was super valuable to my personal growth.At first I didn’t believe a lot of the woo-woo spiritual stuff, but it really did work the way you said it would. I’m so grateful, I’m so glad I met you. It has been a journey. I’ve grown a lot, and it’s been a pleasure.
When I started the program, I felt like I was trying to build a house of my dreams and goals without a plan, without the proper tools, and without a clear vision. It was completely overwhelming – an incredibly daunting task. Now, six months later, I have everything I need for building not only my own soul’s home but also to do the work of community building that is important to me. I know what to do, I have the tools, and it feels much less overwhelming. (Still a bit overwhelming, to be honest – but much less so.)
Through my work with Pace, I have developed a strong framework and foundation that can stand up to the storms of life and the rigors of daily living. By starting with a solid base and focusing on one element at a time, I can move past feeling overwhelmed and onto progress. By building each piece separately, I make the whole stronger and the process of building more enjoyable.
Through the program, I have learned to trust in my own wisdom and my connection to the Divine rather than seeking answers from external sources. This has freed energy and space for joyful discoveries and for celebrating the present moments. When I relied on external sources, there was lots of conflicting and competing information. This meant that any path I chose was destined to be wrong in the eyes of at least some people even while being right for others. For someone who self-trained to be a black belt in the art of people-pleasing, this was very stressful. Trusting my own wisdom removes the step of figuring out which external wisdom best applies, and learning to trust in my internal wisdom lets me move past this sense of being judged. This frees up more of my mental and emotional energy because I’m not wasting that energy on distracting opinions. Gathering information but trusting my own knowing means that the wisdom I find is tailored to my unique experience in life instead of someone else’s. Trusting my inner wisdom has helped me see that I know how to achieve my goals and build my soul’s home.
This work has also provided a new kind of mirror for reflecting my own thoughts and feelings back to me. This allows me to evaluate them more objectively. I’ve gained an awareness of my assumptions, of my habits, of my self-imposed stumbling blocks. I have also gained new tools for navigating decisions (Compass technique, etc.) for working toward and achieving goals. These tools make me better equipped for building my dreams. Perhaps the biggest shift is in my perception. At the start of the program, I was very focused on making the right choice, getting the answer right, choosing the right alternative. Now I see that my path is a journey rather than a destination. I understand that circling back around the spiral is not “failing” but part of the process. I see that even “mistakes” are part of growing and sometimes lead to unexpected but delightful discoveries. This has given me freedom to take chances and to live more fully. It has taken the pressure off; I don’t have to find the 100% right answer for all time; I can focus on the next step and trust that the step that is right after that will unfold in time.
In sum, through the Pathfinder program, I have learned to trust my own knowing as well as gaining new tools and the ability to use them. I have found more courage and freedom in the service to my calling. I have what I need to make the differences that are important to me.
So what’s all the fuss about?
