What we're about
Welcome to the Society of Eclective Consciousness (SEC). For those who are curious, the word "eclective' is derived from two definition sources: The English Dictionary refers to the term "eclectic". It can be used to define a life coaching school of thought known as multiculturalism or diversity. The British Dictionary also refers to the suffix "-ive" to mean pertaining to or tendency. With this, "eclective" can reference the psychological, metaphysical, and spiritual aspects of life coaching.
