Hi there! My name is Nancy Zoelzer Pfaltzgraf and I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. Throughout my life I have been a Registered Nurse -teaching at The Ohio State University School of Nursing, working as a staff nurse in Emergency Rooms and Intensive Care Units for nine years and then an ordained Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) pastor, with partnership standing in the United Church of Christ for more than 30 years.
During my 30+ years of ministry I have served as a parish pastor (serving UCC and DoC congregations), a retreat leader (in congregational, regional conference and national venues), a Hospice Chaplain and a spiritual coach and companion (for clergy and other spiritual seekers). I discovered the importance of an integrated, embodied and playful approach to my life and work. I have also discovered the value of being able to improvise and create stuff in the moment.
Having experienced the satisfaction and the power of leading joyfully and living playfully, I have a deep desire and I believe a calling to share with others the tools that I have learned to help each person unlock their own deep body wisdom and discover joy and ease in each moment. I believe such tools lead to the health and well being of leaders, individuals and communities.
In my work, I draw on the Forms and Body Wisdom Tools of InterPlay, along with my training as a coach using both Appreciative Inquiry and the FEBI (Focused Energy Balance Inventory) to offer people tools they can use to live more playfully and lead more joyfully.
I would be honored to offer my gifts to you as a consultant, coach or a retreat leader.
