Join Us for Our Free Mindfulness Coaching Call
On the first Monday of each month, we host a live free community coaching and mindfulness call. There’s no better way to experience what we’re all about!
Here’s what our students have to say
What a way to start my journey at MCS! This was my first class related to my Coaching endeavor. The STRETCH class is a marvelous macro-level course about what one can expect in the coaching field. The instructor fostered such a memorable and supportive space and I know I will nurture those friendships for years to come.
The courses and instructors at MCS come through every time. We gain personal insight while gaining coaching expertise. I am not the same person I was when I began learning from MCS. I keep thinking that the last class is my favorite, and then I take another. And another. I’ve taken all but 2 classes at this point and find that the cumulative effect is profound. I am grateful.
I had a superb experience in this class [Where Mind Goes, Qi Goes: Somatic Coaching with Qigong]. There is a universe to be explored when it comes to understanding somatic work. I just got more and more curious.
Learning how to listen deeply to the wisdom of the body and to trust that we are fluent in our own somatic language has provided such a valuable coaching tool and life practice.
The Writing, Creativity and the Mindful Coach class has opened new doors for me. I have kicked my inhibitions about writing to the curb and embraced the possibility of what I can create. Now, there is freedom and expansion when I have a pen in my hand and I sit at my desk.
Even with 20 years experience in marketing, I found [Business Alchemy] energized me to try on a shifted focus and help me look at all aspects of my branding in new, creative ways. Adding more tools (technology) to my resource quiver gave me options for expression and let me know I don’t always have to hire someone to do what I need for graphic expression. Sarah and Ann Marie were a dynamic combo and made the experience well worth it
As a result of taking this class (Skillful Means), I have newfound confidence about my ability to coach and a greater appreciation for the experience of being coached. The structure of breaking down the 26 Core Competencies into eight classes was perfect for honing my skills and learning to dance in the moment.
Ann-Marie is the most insightful and gifted teacher and coach. She is the epitome of a Compassionate Warrior… She will guide you with a gentle touch and she will hold you in the highest version of yourself so she is brave when “going in” to guide you. I highly recommend any course she teaches.
[In Writing, Creativity, and the Mindful Coach] I enjoyed learning about how to be an effective coach via the route of writing and mindfulness. This was a new experience for me and one I found to be very valuable. I have a new and great tool in my toolbox to better serve my coaching clients. Thank you for this course!
The Art of Engaged Mindfulness provides a wealth of knowledge, tools and resources, which are directly applicable to coaching individuals or groups!

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.
