Alan Neale

Transition Coach

It’s Happening Now

In more than thirty years Alan Neale has accompanied, supported and helped guide those in transition. Transition from single to couple, from closet to openly gay. The doors of transition have been marked age, employment, failing health and so much more. Alan’s work as Transition Coach is shaped by the beliefs that no-one is called to be alone in their journey, that strength is needed for the journey and that there is an “eloquence of the now” to which attention must be given. Everyone, every day is in transition; Alan is for you an experienced, sensitive, alert companion in the journey

Sermon “Mixed Feelings about Mixed Feelings”. Sunday July 9, 2017. Trinity Church, Newport RI. The Reverend Alan Neale

  The experience of “mixed feelings” is, I believe, intricately linked to the whole business of unrealistic or unconsidered expectations. But, frankly, though we “can’t live with them” neither can we “live without them” – at least, this side of eternity.
