[STRETCH] offers an overview of the ins and outs of the multifaceted world of coaching. It was fluidly and efficaciously presented to allow for the most productive experience. I walk away as a better prepared and more confident coach!
This course [Business Alchemy] gave me the jolt of confidence I needed to finally get started with my website. An excellent balance between mindfulness, marketing theory, and actionable results. I highly recommend it.
The Dynamic Trio was an excellent introduction to the EMDR protocol, giving insights to students who were new to the techniques presented, like me, and also to students familiar with EMDR from use in trauma treatment. We got to experience the power of EMDR for coaching ourselves from the instructor’s skillful examples in class with actual student situations presented. I think we were all impressed with the results.
Great starting point for anyone who would like to see how coaching works and how to stretch yourself to achieve more!
Phil was simply amazing. He is abundantly talented, non-judgmental, gracious and wise. He created a strong and safe community where people could take risks, learn about themselves, the coaching profession and above all, grow personally. I saw every person in the course take risks and transform. I am a seasoned leader/executive and I think he is the best facilitator I have ever experienced. He is a rare treasure and I am blessed to have been part of this course.
Right Speech with Meg Hess is a wonderful class. I am grateful for the many communication tools I learned through the course. Meg, as an instructor, brings uplifting energy to the class, keeping the discussions engaging and memorable.
[Dynamic Trio] was truly the highlight of my week. I loved the material that we covered and the positive energy of Ann-Marie. I recommend this class to anyone who is looking for new exercises or experience possibilities for their clients. But I give an even stronger recommendation or anyone looking for continuing self-care. Such a wonderful personal and professional opportunity.
I very much appreciated and enjoyed the content of this class (The Dynamic Trio). I was using concepts and techniques Ann Marie shared with my clients the day after training. I loved, loved, loved the inclusion of mindfulness in the training and in the concepts. I strongly believe that psychology and spirituality are synergistic disciplines that Ann Marie weaves together masterfully.
I learned a great deal in the Business Alchemy course, mostly that I have the desire, motivation and ability to make coaching my life work. I am very thankful for the instructors helping me see the glorious possibilities that are within my reach.
This was an amazing instruction on EMDR. I highly recommend this class. [The Dynamic Trio]

From Our Cushion Wisdom Blog
Go be with whatever seems to beckon you.
Sit in front of it. Or behind it. Or on top of it.
Do whatever is needed to be with it.
And now give it permission to be with you…
Somatically, mentally, emotionally, spriritually.
Ask, “What do I need to know?”
Be with what arises.
Living in Suchness
Bearing Witness to Just This
Breathing into What Is
Image yourself into being alive in a world of non-duality.
A world where it is neither this nor that.
A world of just this. A world where we walk with what is.
What is happening somatically as you mindfully
imagine yourself participating in a non-dual world?
Give yourself time to play with this. Watch for shifts
In the dream he said, “This is my cave. I am not ready
to leave it.”
She said, “I know. But you will find there are many
caves ready for you.”
Three weeks went by. She learned more about him as
they continued meditating together.
Then in another dream he declared, “I am ready.”
In that one statement life changed.
Taking deep breaths
They birthed each other
Into going beyond the beyond.
Be attentive to your BodyMIndHeart as you contemplate your answer. Listen deeply.
Remember you can always uplevel your choices if needed.
The Mindfulness Coaching School stands in solidarity with our Black, Latino and Indigenous communities.
The challenge of these days requires us to explore our own way of being as educators and as a community. We re-commit ourselves to learning, teaching and acting as more intentional allies.
