Business Alchemy made me aware that my business has an energy and essence, just as I do. In discovering this, I started to get really clear on how I want to present myself to the universe, what type of business I want to create and what tribe I want to support and engage with. I learned that there are kinder, more modern and zen-like ways of being an entrepreneur and marketing myself. Overall, this class helped me to align my heart, my vision and my business. I am so grateful to Sarah and Ann-Marie. They were both so supportive, knowledgeable and inspiring.
This was unlike any leadership course or training I have ever experienced in my thirty-plus years in the workforce. This course [If Steve Jobs Were Your Coach: Leadership Skills to Thrive] took traditional leadership topics such as ethics and management of people/products and presented them for the coaching profession by translating them through the inspirational eyes of intuition and mindfulness. Ann-Marie has an acute way of weaving these aspects through virtually any subject matter and leadership qualities is no exception. We tied together these qualities with the outside world and our inner self to anchor them deep within us.
I was given such an expansive view of what I’m capable of: creating a successful business for myself.
Phil Joudrey is an amazing teacher. He will take you places in this course that you didn’t know you could go. And you will be supported and encouraged every step of the way while coming to understand some fundamental aspects of yourself as a coach.
Fabulous course to get you into or back into writing fearlessly and joyfully! [Writing, Creativity, and the Mindful Coach]
This class will give you a coaching community in just a few short months. I now feel that I have colleagues and a support system that I can reach out to in times of need. So grateful for having the chance to know these remarkable individuals.
The Dynamic Trio program was wonderful. I learned so much that I have applied right away, and yet the course itself felt light and effortless – perfect conditions for learning. I am taking away a renewed sense of the power of positive psychology and feel more liberated yet grounded in my coaching work. The client imagery and somatic awareness from the practices and applications have been so inspiring and moving. Thank you!
This course [Body Electric] really teaches you how to dive deep into somatic awareness. I was looking to get more comfortable with this practice and the class exceeded my expectations from the book to the instructor, Ann-Marie, to the guest lecturers. Many “WOW” moments as I used the techniques for myself and with my clients.
Right Speech provides essential tools for making one’s way through the complexities of this human experience–our own, and those of our clients.
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.

When it’s messy…
When you feel stuck…
Open your tool box
Letting the traits most needed float out:
Resiliency, perseverance, curiosity.
And that “Go get ’em, Tiger” attitude.
Sit listening into the silent gaps without interruption.
Let the gaps soften you.
Let the gaps tenderize you
Taking a deep breath and exhaling
Let yourself dissolve into the gap.
Who are you now?
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
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.
