Guide to the NonOrdinary
Her ongoing support in my life is a critical source of guidance and direction for me and she is a cornerstone member of my team. I literally would not be where I am in my life and my work without Trish. She is wise, compassionate and totally on point as a coach and has helped me shift my perspective and clear out old and deeply rooted patterns that has expanded the possibilities of my life in all areas."
Professionally, she's helped me to connect to my deeper desires and identify my own blockages to integrate and move beyond them.
On the personal and spiritual levels, she's helped me connect more deeply to different aspects of my self through the Four Forces Framework, which has become a kind of internal language for me when I'm thinking of my own growth, as well as a system for making sense of non-ordinary states and human experience more broadly.
As a coach, artist, and human, I can get stuck in self-doubt and powerlessness. Now, eight years after first meeting Trish at her Erotic & Ecstatic retreat, I’ve broken down barriers I didn’t know I had, unearthed wisdom I didn’t know I knew, untangled gunky clumps of beliefs that drained my power, and learned skills and tools to navigate life in new ways—ways that align with my desires, and with life’s. I’ve learned that I absolutely love playing at the edges—and am terrified of it, too. With Trish and her community, I don’t have to do it alone. I’m continually grateful that Trish is willing to offer her meta-cosmic heart and brilliance to the world."
Trish knows how to work with people who have strong opinions, emotions, and reactions, and is able to help us move beyond and through it.
I learned to be less reactive, more compassionate, and much more connected through our work together. I highly recommend working with Trish!
Trish zoomed right into the core of the problem and helped me to gently untangle it. I perceive my entire business differently now and I'm able to confidently own the truth of who I am and what I believe.
I was shocked by how much deep work we were able to do so quickly. I'd highly recommend working with Trish! Her kindness, curiosity, skill, and wisdom are unmatched. And, most importantly, she really cares about you and your success! "

Great Work Is Ahead of It’s Time With Trish Blain
LETTER FROM TRISH
In my early 20s, I had the idealistic belief that I could help create a better world by opening an environmentally-conscious products store. It didn’t take long to notice that my “like-minded” customers were often shockingly at odds with each other – and with me! Sound familiar?
This led me to ask a life-defining question: “How can we create a better world when everyone has a different idea of what that means?” I wondered if there were common desires that we could all agree on. Maybe that’s where we could start to create a common vision. And WOW, did life deliver!
My life became the training ground for what would evolve into The Four Forces Framework. Excited to share my experiences, I started teaching and working with people. While it was clear that the work was transformative – both for my clients and myself – I struggled to describe it to others. It just didn’t fit into any of the ordinary boxes. And I wasn’t the only one with this problem. When new clients contacted me, they often began the conversation with some variant of “I have no idea what you do – my friend just told me to call you.”
It took me a while to fully understand that a new paradigm requires not only new language and skills, but also new states of consciousness. These states can be difficult to describe even when you’ve experienced them. This realization prompted new questions: “How do we get there from here? What is the process for shifting paradigms?”
This line of inquiry also led me to an important personal realization. I had to stop and acknowledge that I was feeling exhausted – soul-weary, in fact. Considering the increasing challenges in the world, I imagine you might relate to having a sense of déjà vu and wondering “What’s the point?”
This reflection brought me back to what sparked it all… a deep knowing that more is possible. A better world isn’t a destination – it’s an ecstatic state of consciousness that allows us to experience why we wanted to be human in the first place. It is time to help each other get what we most deeply desire.
It’s time to create a world that affirms: “Yes! This is why I am alive!”
Let’s do that.
