I am an ordained Interfaith Minister who provides life coaching from the spiritual perspective of non-duality. I hold a Master of Education degree in Community Counseling from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and worked for 10 years as a mental health counselor before transitioning to the ministry in 2013.
My call to this work was the culmination of a 30-year spiritual search in the course of which I explored many paths, including Buddhism, Christianity, Paganism, and Gnosticism. Beginning with my introduction to the work of J. Krishnamurti and Toni Packer in the early 1990's, however, I began seeking a simpler form of spirituality that depended less on ritual and dogma, and focused more on present moment awareness. This approach was enhanced by my exposure to Eckhart Tolle's teachings, and further refined with my discovery Advaita (non-durlaity).
Most non-dual approaches guide the seeker through a process of self-inquiry leading to the realization that there is no more...
* Release from identification/belief in a separate self.
* Progressive relief from fear and worries about the future.
* Greater freedom to explore one's whole self and personal potential.
* Greater creativity in solving problems in all life areas.
* Spiritual awakening.
* Greater sense of abundance and appreciation for life as it is.
* Greater sense of peace and self-confidence.
I see myself as primarily being a facilitator who helps the client discover that all the answers they seek are already within him or her. Due to our conditioning in the early stages of our development, however, our infinite potential is often obscured to the point where we can no longer see our infinite potential. I enter into an equal partnership with the client to help him or her see beyond these artificially imposed limitations (i.e. the belief in a separate self) by whatever means are appropriate to the individual, to find his or her center in the reality of who they really are.
I provide my coaching services either in-person, by phone, or online (see below for details on my online coaching services), however, if you wish to book me for an in-person session, I am only able to travel within a 20-mile radius of Chattanooga, Tennessee, without adding an extended travel fee ($50 for every 20 miles over the initial 20 miles). I currently do not offer a package rate for multiple sessions, but would be happy to negotiate a discounted rate for multiple sessions upon request, following the initial consultation.
Coaching sessions may be facilitated online using either the Life Coach Hub system or via Skype.
I am open to providing group coaching sessions based on my above-described model, on request. I am still in the process of developing a fee structure for this service, so please feel free to ask for a quote if interested.
Reverend James Ramsey's path to the ministry was a long and winding one, yet he received the first glimmers of his call to the ministry from an early age. Born in Orange, New Jersey in 1961 to a career Air Force father and an English mother, Reverend Ramsey lived in Ohio, England, and Florida before the family settled in Chattanooga when he was 12. Despite a secular upbringing, a series of mystical experiences led to his lifelong study of philosophy and theology. Simultaneously cultivating a passion for music, he played several instruments in his school bands and began writing songs at the age of 15.
Graduating from Hixson High School in 1979, Reverend Ramsey enlisted in the U.S. Army the following year and served as a Smoke and Flame Specialist at Fort Hood, Texas, where he was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for his contribution to the reactivation of 2nd Chemical Battalion. After leaving the service, in 1984 Reverend Ramsey converted to Roman Catholicism and began a more ...
