Linda Raven Coaching

Radical life coaching. Compassionate life coaching with a social justice lens and a strong influence of somatics and embodiment practices. I have extensive experience with people working in development or humanitarian aid as well as people grappling with questions around neocolonization, racism, intercultural issues, and other deeper questions expats experience.


About Linda Raven

I was born and raised in South Bend, IN in the US, but have lived in Southern Africa for more than 15 years (Namibia and Angola) and have also spent significant periods of time in Central America. I’ve lived in California and Massachusetts in the US as well.  I have an MA in International Development and Social Change.  I’ve worked for more than 10 years in the development industry and have a strong passion for social justice.  I am passionate about personal development and a variety of embodied movement practices which greatly inform my coaching practice.  When coaching, I hold awareness of my clients, their identity, and the larger societal structure in which we are living.  I particularly love working with clients who are questioning the larger systems in which we operate and their place within them.
