Think Queerly Meditations By Darren Stehle Cover

Embrace your uniqueness & Freely create the life you want.

Darren Stehle Headshot 20Nov19

Welcome! I’m Darren Stehle. Instead of diving into “What I do”, let me share with you “Who I am”. I am a seeker, not for the sake of knowledge alone, instead, I seek the wisdom to help others overcome personal struggles and inequality.

My journey for most of my life has been to love and accept myself without conditions. I have translated my self-examination into writing and podcasting — which you will find here on my blog — to share my evolving ideas about how we can create a more loving and accepting world for all people. I publish Th-Ink Queerly, an LGBTQ magazine on Medium, to document the unique social and cultural leadership that queer people offer humanity.

As a coach, I help my clients understand that…

When you freely love who you are, you can freely create the life you want.

There will always be conditions, limitations, and challenges in life, just as there will always be the polarity between the status quo and that which is queer or different. My work as a coach is to help you fully accept yourself without condition to gain the courage to lead from your difference and be the change they want to see in the world.

Currently, I am writing a book about Queer Leadership. You can get a sample of my early insights by downloading a free copy of my book, Think Queerly: Meditations & Critical Reflections On Liberating Humanity.

We give away our power if we try to fit into the expectations of the status quo. This restricts our authenticity and well-being. When you stop putting emphasis on what others think of you and focus instead on living out what’s inside of you — your truth — that is the best way to live your authenticity.

Darren is a leadership coach in Toronto, Canada who helps his clients to connect and embrace their uniqueness and freely create the life they want. He writes and podcasts regularly about Queer Leadership.
