My mission in life is to inspire others to fully engage with their surroundings. To create a DEEP CONNECTION to heart and purpose, to LISTEN with CURIOSITY, and to a LIVE LIFE beyond your wildest IMAGINATION.

Life for me began with the expansive freedom of the outdoors.  I was raised in the country with the nearest neighbor at least 2 miles away.  My brother and I were free to discover to roam not only the wonders of nature but to internally inform our own experience without a lot of input from others.   We had endless excitement and intoxication with the wildness outside, all the wondrous excitement that growing up on a farm could provide.

Hit the Fast forward button for the next 10-15 years and you will find me roaming to the ends of the earth. Traveling and teaching with such an affinity to connect with the vastness of the world; to see smell and touch all it’s offerings. I loved it so much I needed to find a way to see more. I manifested my dream job leading high end active travel vacations in Europe, Central America, and The great American West. Leading trips throughout the external landscape I discovered one of my greatest gifts: the ability to connect with people.

One of my greatest appreciations is to be able to simultaneously learn about what lights people up while guiding them through the most beautiful landscapes. Over the years the landscape has changed. Always a seeker of external beauty I became a seeker of the internal landscape.  Into that which lies beneath the surface and deep in my heart. I felt a strong call to merge my love for connecting to people with healing arts. I was drawn to certifications and trainings in eastern healing modalities, yoga, holistic health and finally to a career in life coaching. In many ways I am doing the same thing I have always done. Guiding people through the most beautiful landscape of all, the internal landscape.

What has always been imprinted on my view on life is the responsibility to recognize impermanence, fragility, and the desire to move with a steady vigor.  Never compromising heart in any aspect of my life and living from a place of non-judgement and deep compassion.

This inward view whispered mysteries undiscovered and unknown until I was willing to allow all the noise to fade.  There, in the stillness, I discovered what was most essential, most profound, most authentic. A deep expansive relationship with myself that is perfect and at the same time always evolving into more. Today, you can find me traversing the Vermont landscape with my husband and two beautiful wildly curious boys.

With Warmth + Gratitude,

Erin

Favorite Quote Today:

"Once the realization is accepted that, even between the closest human beings, infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole and against a wide sky!”  -Rainer Maria Rilke


Praise

"Finding one’s true self takes a lot of courage. It often means coming face to face with the ‘known’ truths that we are uncomfortable accepting, sharing or admitting.

Erin’s talents lie within her natural ability to listen, reflect and inspire you to explore your happiness. She connects with you on a ‘human’ level and allows you to define your own journey in a ‘safe’ environment, where you are encouraged to think out loud, and come to terms with self love in the most gracious way!”

-Sharon Boulder, CO

"Erin is a powerful coach, since our sessions I have created more mental space for myself to just exist in each moment, and because of that space, I've been able to lean into new opportunities that will help me gain forward momentum in meeting my future goals.  Amazing work!!"

-KM Lenox, MA

"Erin Benjamin is an AMAZING life coach. I have worked with her for a year-- it has transformed my life and how I see myself in it. Right away, she helped me identify an important goal I could and should accomplish and has given me tremendous support along the way. Since then, my life has opened up in ways I hadn’t dreamed of.

Working with Erin, I feel more confident, more connected, and more inspired. She is a wonderful guide—honest, wise, grounded, and supportive—and gives you the tools to create the life you want. Thank you, Erin. I am so grateful!"
