Maximilian Hachtmann

As long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with who I am as an individual and who we are as a collective. Inquiring wondrously through child-hood, adolescent and into adult-hood.

As a seeker, I’ve taken this exploration into various different fields. Through my formal study sociology and massage-therapy.As an (ex-)cofounder. As a musician and graph/web-designer. And throughout my continued explorations into the nature of life and perception.

I’m a stand for human beings to live an integrated, expressed and fulfilled experience of life.

Maximilian has helped me move from thinking to feeling in several facets of my life. We broke down old narratives and looked at what my current reality looks like. In our weekly sessions I always had the opportunity to take stock, with Max as a wonderful corrective for stuck thought processes and self-judgment. I am very grateful for the time we explored together.

Maximilian was very intuitive in our sessions and oriented me towards finding my deepest desires. This while helping me to find the obstacles that I put in front of myself, which block that possibility and opening up of a new sense of hope.

He gave me the tools to understand myself and my mechanisms better. I highly recommend trusting the process, trusting him and trusting yourself in this journey. It felt a lot like teamwork and that was really nice to experience in our work together.

The coaching process with Maximilian offered me a protected and empowered space for my own development, which I have missed very much in recent years. It is incredibly liberating to be able to work with a regularity on my fullfillment and my interaction with the world. Maximilian navigates my unstructured thoughts with great confidence and empathy, and helped me to find tools for myself and strengthens me.

I perceived working with Maximilian like entering a space of focus. A space in which the two of us looking at me, profoundly changed the way I approached myself and how I took responsibility in this process. 

In the time we met, a lot in my life was transforming and being with Maximilian felt like standing on a calm plane between the messy layers of change that were sliding into each other. Looking at all the messy affairs was not only safe and felt productive but really made „the looking“ itself agile, steady and joyful after all. 

Over the course of 10 weeks, we were cruising through a lot of topics and seemingly changed our course multiple times. But what the experience as a whole left me with, is a great feeling of acceptance, appreciation, grounding and competence in myself.

The World We Create

Through an experience of being-in-the-world, you have constructed a reality in which all of life appears. A natural ground that enables some and disables other experiences, realities, happenings, things, etc.

Ontological coaches are able to support their clients to uncover and create awareness of the reality they have constructed. It’s this awareness of where you are, that is necessary to move towards what you desire.

Because you can only transform something that is real and that you are aware of.

Reality

How is your reality constructed?

The Essence You Are

Next to the construction of our reality, there is also an essential/ontological reality that we reside in. Ontological Coaching asserts that there is an essence which is:

1) Unique – distinguishable and specific to you
2) Real – is tangibly experienced by you and others
3) A priori or primary – something we are born with

Ontological work supports you to uncover these and to see who you are in your essence. This creates awarenss of where you are either dimming or over-expressing this essence. And to re-align with your being.

Essence

What is essential to you who you are?

Why is it special?

Typically coaching is only able to focus on the doing of a persons life.

Asking questions in the line of “what could you do to improve your situation?”, or “What should you do better next time?”.

This perspective is valuable, however when not put into companionship with the being of life, misses a large part of what it means to unfold oneself.

Ontological Coaching adds this missing layer – the being – back into the coaching process.

Being

What can you not be with?

Transforming you

To change means to move from one side of the spectrum to the other – it’s playing the same game, but differently. To truly transform means to start living in a new paradigm – it means shifting the patterns of the game. 

What does that mean specifically? Fundamentally it means seeing clearly the reality you’ve built for yourself. Only from that place of awareness and reality are you able to choose something different. Because it’s an empowered choice that opens the door into a new way of being

It’s at this point, that your creativity and natural ingenuity is freed and you start to allow new ways of being to emerge.

Becoming

What does it mean to transform?

Ontology - The Study of Being

Ontology is the inquiry into the foundation of all of life.

It wonders what the essence of any thing, feeling, thought, identity, concept, idea, etc. is.

Put another way, ontology wonders about what the Zen Buddhist call “Original Face”. 

Or the question of the essence of who and what we are.

Cease practice based
On intellectual understanding,
Pursuing words and
Following after speech.
Learn the backward
Step that turns
Your light inward
To illuminate within.
Body and mind of themselves
Will drop away
And your original face will be manifest.

Dogen

You cannot describe it or draw it,
You cannot praise it enough or perceive it.
No place can be found in which
To put the Original Face;
It will not disappear even
When the universe is destroyed.

 Mumon

Show me your original face, the face you had before your parents were born.

YOU CARE FOR OTHERS

You have a deep need to provide care, support and direction for those around you.

But you don’t allow others to support you.

So your relationships don’t have the depth you desire.

Because deep intimacy based on authenticity is difficult when you need to “function” all the time.

Which leads to feeling lonely, even though you have many people that love you.

LEADERS

Have a positive impact on those around them

YOU DESIRE TO CREATE

You have a driven desire to have a positive impact in the world.

Yet because of your drive, you become oblivious to the possibilities around you.

And you only allow yourself authenticity when it serves the mission you’re driving forward.

You get really creative when things are not “going well” (this is also your super-power).

And you have developed creative strategies so that “negative” emotions don’t get in the way.

Creators

Care deeply for the world and others

YOU YEARN FOR SELF

You have a deep desire to be an authentic expression of yourself

But you don’t care for your own needs

Which leads to stress and lack of rest and recovery

You’re constantly thinking there is more for you to do

So you experience latent frustration throughout

Which leads you to quickly question everything

Seekers

Live from deep authenticity

A Journey Into Your Heart

MAXIMILIAN HACHTMANN

Life to me has been about the dance between the inner and the outer.

And as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with who I am as an individual and who we are as a collective. Inquiring wondrously though child-hood, adolescent and into adult-hood.

As a seeker, I’ve taken this exploration into various different fields. And been on a continued joyous inquiry into the nature of Life.

All of which form a deep, wide, rich and alive tapestry of Self.

And it’s through this journey of self-unfolding, that I allow my work to impact peoples lives.

INNER OPENING

LIVING FROM BEING

INtegrated Seekers

BEING SELF

Where does Being reside?
What you are seeking for?
What is the essence that makes up your being?

BEING

SEEKING

ESSENCE

BEING

Being is that which is in immediate and direct relationship with totality of Self, World and Other. Being lies at the centre and core of who we are, what we create and the life we lead.

Even though we are always living from the source that is our Being, the clarity and directness through which we live from being, becomes distorted and muddled.

SEEKING

What we seek, is who we become.

Seeking points to an innate wonder about life and existence. It’s a quality we can choose to follow. One that is born from, and empowered by our passion and love.

ESSENCE

We are made up of unique, distinguishable and ever-present qualities of Being. This is what we call our Essence. 

And any distinction of Essence is a map and not the territory. Our true Essence is the full experience of life in the present moment – one that we cannot reduce to words or language.

Emergent Leaders

BECOMING SELF

Who are you becoming?
How are you leading change?
What lens do you see your world through?

BECOMING

LEADING

CONTEXT

BECOMING

We are always developing, striving and unfolding. In constant flux – never still and always in relationship to our environment.

It’s a dance we find ourselves in – one oscilating between the arriving and striving.

Unfolding into who we are already are. The paradox of becoming is the movement of life.

LEADING

But who defines the direction forward? Who adjusted the course of life?

It’s that part in ourselves that takes ownership for who we are, and leadership for who we will become. Because all leadership is born from the present moment.

CONTEXT

In the self-becoming (also called self-developing) process we are only ever moving from “context” to “context”. Any context we live through creates the lens through which we see, sense, and are able to respond to the world around us with.

This enables some things, but also limits others. It’s part of this work to become aware to both, so as to choose what contexts we desire to live through.

Expressed Creators

DOING SELF

What are you doing in the world?
How are you creating?
What shadows arise from your light?

DOING

CREATING

SHADOW

DOING

Life is Doing. It’s always acting, moving, creating, destroying…

Doing means interacting with the world around us. It means coming out of our shell and risking to get it wrong – because only in the doing, we do we see created change.

CREATING

In the playground of materials, opportunities, people and ideas, that surrounds us, we can shape and create.

We are creative beings

SHADOW

In the self-unfolding / self-de-veloping / self-becoming process we are only ever moving from “context” to “context”.

Each context we live through creates the lens through which we see, sense, and are able to respond to the world around us with.
