Create Your Caldera

Caldera: a beautiful transformation

Have you ever seen the beauty of a Caldera?  Crater Lake in Oregon and sea-filled Santorini, Greece are incredible examples of calderas.  But these weren’t always beautiful, peaceful spaces.

A Caldera is the rebirth that resulted from a volcanic eruption.  The eruption was a horrific event that created destruction and devastation.  It was the end of something. 

And yet, the eruption is the beginning of a transformation.  It is just the beginning of what lies ahead.  When the volcano’s crater, newly sunken into the earth, turns into a body of water, it’s an incredibly picturesque space!

I liken this process to one that most people undergo when they endure some sort of “negative” experience…. one that leads to a major transformation in their life.  When we are in the midst of a crisis such as a divorce or job change, the world can feel very dark around us and it is hard to imagine what beauty may lie ahead.  And yet, just like the volcano, endings lead to beginnings.

Discovering Possibility 

Volcanoes can happen in our lives daily.  Little things “go wrong” and it can often feel like a volcanic eruption.  The bigger events like a relationship or career change can have an even greater impact, creating a big, dark crater that feels so deep…. like we may never get out of it.  What is key is for us to know that possibility lies ahead.  Our lives are made up of the experiences we create from the things that happen around us.

Why Caldera Coaching?

At many points in our lives, we encounter these volcanic eruptions when a major change occurs, often unexpectedly.  When we are ready to take action and find the beauty in our own future caldera but we aren’t sure how, it is an excellent time to elect coaching as a resource.

In coaching over 500 individuals that have gone through some of these difficult times, Jodi Hummer has helped them find the beauty of their own caldera—their new life, their new beginning.  She seeks to help her clients understand where the possibilities exist in their situation and then support them through the process of turning those into reality.

Caldera Coaching Process

CALL TO ACTION

This may be why you sought out this website. You know you have a better future ahead and you don’t like living in the negativity of the past. Your volcano erupted but you now have caught a glimpse of the “light at the end of the tunnel” and you want to find your way to it. You just aren’t sure how to step out of your current state to reach it.

ACCEPT REALITY

When you want to move forward, it is important to understand your current emotions and limitations which can cause you to hang onto the past. These can be positive memories about the past that make you want to “go back” when that is not possible because the volcano destroyed that old reality. Or they can be feelings of sadness, anger or fear as you are brought back to the negative memories. You feel as though you are stuck in the darkness of the eruption as these emotions keep bringing you back. We work together to help you rise above the past, assessing and understanding all of these emotions so you can begin to accept them. The acceptance leads you to an escape from the past.

LOOK FORWARD TO NEW LIFE

You are now ready to create your beautiful caldera! This is your time of discovery. You are fully defining what the future could hold and how things can look in an ideal life. You start to visualize the caldera’s colors and features as you explore, dream big and get excited!

DEFINE THE FUTURE

After options are discovered, we start to get specific on where you are headed. You develop a more precise view of what you want the future to hold and can fully describe your caldera.

EVALUATE OBSTACLES AND OPTIONS TO OVERCOME

As you prepare to take action, you need to take the time to think through what may stand in the path of your caldera creation. During coaching we uncover potential pitfalls and obstacles that could keep you from being successful. You will understand how you will handle these barriers in advance so they don’t limit you from reaching your goals and feeling defeated early in the process..

READY FOR ACTION

You are ready to outline your action plan and follow through upon it. Your Caldera is in sight now and you just have to take steps toward the final creation of it. As your coaching partner, I’ll help you define how to hold yourself accountable and make your dream a reality!

ACTUALIZE THIS NEW LIFE!

Your beautiful caldera is taking shape! You are enjoying this new chapter of your life, implementing the necessary actions that are needed to cultivate and grow your new reality. You feel the beauty on a daily basis and you feel refreshed each moment of each day. You are fulfilled in your caldera.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable.

How can I edit the masks ?

All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

What do I need to open the files ?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words
