working at a desk with chapter be
Chapter BE is an organization that works to connect people to their true internal BEing as they write the next chapter of their life.

Through individualized coaching, facilitation, and storytelling, Chapter BE guides people as they reframe their narrative from doing to BEing, ultimately defining success internally and (re)connecting with themselves and a greater humanity.

“Chapter B” is a term used by psychologists to identify when a person enters into a new stage of life – whether that is a new relationship, job, city, or state of being. It is a moment, step, or leap when a person actively chooses to change something that isn’t making them happy, and instead starts to explore what might be a better fit for them and their life.

“To BE” is defined simply as “to exist in actuality; have life or reality.” Synonyms include to be alive, breathe, and have existence. Every person’s BEing is uniquely their own.

As you turn to your next chapter, Chapter BE challenges you to change the focus of your story from “what do you do” to “how might you BE in this world.”

The following are services offered by Chapter BE for individuals, groups, organizations or corporations looking to examine and live in their BEing.
