My introduction to Vivian and Within University began with an experience. A book club. Since that first journey, there have been several more and each one has brought me closer to my Center. Each one has also opened me in ways that I couldn’t have achieved on my own. With Vivian, coaching doesn’t just show what’s within, it helps one discover how to use what they discover about themselves in a way that serves the whole of humanity.
“A rising tide lifts all boats.” Vivian’s work is part of the spiritual tide the world needs. Her intuitiveness is apparent in both group experiences and one-on-one coaching. I am so grateful for the guidance in turning inward. I credit this guidance for my ability to continually show up as my best self in any moment, to know that my heart knows the way, and to confidently say “Yes, Thank you! This and more!”Paula Sprunger
Vivian’s Within (U)niversity quarterly journeys are my fix for the depth and genuine connection I crave. I seem to go into each experience not entirely knowing what I’ll come away with, but am always amazed by how perfectly my takeaways fit like just the right puzzle pieces into the big picture. These mini-programs are truly transformational in a way I’ve never experienced before…so much so that they feel almost magical; a wonder only Vivi could have created.Sarah Dietman
Vivian is the best. I found Vivian at a time when I was full of motivation but needed clarity. Within 10 minutes of our introductory call, Vivian pulled out of me that I should start a podcast (this was before everyone was doing podcasts) and I felt a giant weight lift off my shoulders. It made perfect sense. Vivian was tough and held me accountable. Within 30 days of that first Skype call, I published episode 1 and never missed a week for over 3 years. Vivian has been a special person in my online journey and someone I feel honored to call a friend. Simply the best.Mike Murphy
Vivian is magic. She is also wise, kind, and profound. Every time I work with Vivian, she gently leads me away from the aspects of my habitual mental matrix that keep me trapped and suffering toward a more expansive and enjoyable way of being. When I participated in Vivian’s Within (U)niversity and her Magna Fi program, I was one of four women that she brought together from geographically distant locations. In this group, the miles between us disappeared, and we explored new ways of thinking, pushed through superficially programmed beliefs, and connected deeply and honestly. I think we are all hungry and sometimes starving tor that level of connection and truth.Tracy Day
I am so grateful for Vivian’s contributions and gifts. Fortunate you, if and when you decide to work with her!
Working with Vivian, I saw changes in the daily choices that define my life. When she speaks, expect it to be with a wise and piercing insight into something that perhaps sat plainly before your eyes all along. She has helped me know that each choice leads me to the work that was my inevitable destination, and helped me tap into my natural space.Lauren
Vivian expands your perspective. She can see the biggest possible picture and has the passion for fulfilling potential naturally and leading others to step into their vision. In the process, she broadens your scope and catalyzes creativity (and the energy creativity brings). She has a unique combination of gifts, cultural/social context, experiences, and strengths, that give her a unique Big Picture perspective. She helps you see more, and differently than you would without her influence.Karalee
The biggest take-away I got from the intensive was that I’m not alone and to never be afraid to admit you need help coping with life’s challenges. I’ve learned it’s ok to be vulnerable and that’s been empowering.Cindy
At Vivian’s Intensive I learned I could be my true self in all aspects of my life. With the insights that emerged from my subconscious in the painting and nature exploration exercises, I realized that I didn’t have to choose a path but could create my own, and fully live my life and share my gifts as a father, teacher, writer, and coach.Todd
