We had the good fortune of connecting with Greg Lang and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Greg, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My business is focused on coaching individuals one on one and the goal is to empower them to live in their truth, to embody their purpose and to be as holistically healthy and joyful as they can be. As they heal and evolve and grow, that energy expands and effects those around them, creating a reverberation and a ripple effect that can raise the consciousness of anyone and everyone in their field.
What should our readers know about your business?
I take a design-centered approach to coaching. I believe that a strong foundation that is built from healthy habit, ritual and consistency is necessary to build upon it a body that can house and sustain true transformation. The road to coaching was not easy for me, there were a lot of fears, doubts and insecurities that I had to face in order to put skin in the game and take that leap. I also realized that to be an effective coach, I had to do a great deal of healing and hire coaches of my own, operating under the belief that in order to facilitate others on their healing journeys, I had to do the same. Needless to say, it was and is a beautiful path to travel.
It took me 38 years to figure out who I am and why I’m here, now my mission is to guide people using the lessons, techniques and modalities that I’ve honed over the years, into a brighter and more harmonious future.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I live in Joshua Tree, so there are many beautiful places and spaces to explore. First, Joshua Tree National Park. It’s like another planet. It’s incredibly beautiful and magical and the opportunity to connect with the nature there is really special.
We’d have to eat tacos at Red Dog Saloon, it’s an old Roy Rogers movie set that’s been turned into a really cool bar/restaurant and it’s in historic Pioneertown.
Other things would include swimming at Deep Creek Hot Springs, riding dirt bikes around Giant Rock, eating mushrooms and stargazing, coffee and a pastry at La Luna, grabbing groceries from Holistic Ranch and cooking a meal at home, lunch at La Copine, walking around the Joshua Tree Retreat Center and hitting up the Joshua Tree Farmers Market on Saturday morning.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shout out goes to Preston Smiles and the KaBoom family, going through that program gave me the tools, confidence and knowledge that I needed to transition careers and step into full-time service. The coaches that run the program and the participants that shared that container we instrumental in my taking the leap into coaching as a profession. Big love to all of those people, I’m in deep gratitude to them.
