The world is reinventing itself in this moment. It’s in these silent spaces where we find resiliency within an infinite and nourishing mindset.  Join us.

Skillful Means was a great course for learning the coaching skills for the first time or brushing up on the skills you’ve been using in your practice for a while. I enjoyed watching Ann-Marie demonstrate the coaching skills through practice sessions in class. Would definitely recommend to anyone no matter where they are in their coaching career.
