With over 35 years of expertise in leadership coaching, intuitive guidance, and spiritual direction, Brenda Bentley emerges as a multifaceted professional, embodying the roles of both an Integrative Life Purpose Coach and a Mindful Mystic. Her mission encompasses empowering individuals to unearth their authentic brilliance and embark on profound spiritual journeys toward inner enlightenment and connection with the Divine.


Having traversed the realms of domestic and international banking, where she guided individuals in managing and preserving external resources on a global scale, Brenda now directs her focus towards coaching others to explore the depths of their inner worlds.


Brenda's coaching approach guides individuals towards a heightened sense of well- being to flourish across various aspects of life. Drawing inspiration from alchemy, Brenda collaborates with clients to reveal their inner brilliance, shifting obstacles into opportunities. This transmutation aligns them with their life purpose and sense of fulfillment.


Spiritual Direction, as Brenda practices it, is an art form embracing presence, (w)holy listening, discernment, expressive arts, embodiment, and conscious conversation. It offers a space for exploration of prayer, meditation, contemplative practices, and spiritual experiences. Individuals evolve spiritually by relinquishing the ego and personal will, uncovering their hidden wholeness as their true authentic nature. In this sacred journey, there is no fixing, goal setting, or providing solutions. Spirit serves as the true Director.

I share the wisdom gained from my own journey of self-discovery and healing. As I courageously delved into the depths of my inner world, I unearthed hidden treasures and sources of profound healing. Embracing the shadow aspects of my own journey has illuminated the path for others, guiding them toward healing and transformation.
