When the moment is all about laughter!

Mar 20, 2022


Ann-Marie back in the day…

Take 30 seconds and laugh. Laugh strong. Laugh
loud. Laugh for no other reason except to laugh.

After 30 seconds go into silence and notice what
arises. (Do this now before you read on!)

Laughing meditation alters the dopamine and
serotonin levels in our bodies resulting in a decrease
in depression, stress and anxiety.

In other words: Aliveness vibrates. Attitudes shift. Joy
seeps in. Beginners Mind reigns. Life becomes
vibrant.

WARNING! Watch out for the Inner Critic! When we are
not feeling up to snuff we will put off Laughing
Meditation. This is only an excuse from IC telling us
we need to suffer through whatever we are
experiencing first.

Not so! Many meditation practitioners choose to do
Laughing Meditation in the midst of suffering. For
instance, joining together in Laughing Meditation
when our Beloved is dying is one of the highest
moments for all…especially the Beloved who is
passing.

Mindful Eating: Mindful Life is more than just about food. It’s about our emotional responses to trauma and how we cope with them. The class was extremely beneficial and was a growing experience that will be a part of me the rest of my life.
Milo MiserlianStudent CoachSanta Rosa, CA
The readings for this class [Skillful Means] were amazing and opened wonderful insights and discussions. I learned a lot about myself, both personally and professionally.

I’ve been a therapist for years now, but still get the jitters every time I begin to work with a new client (probably the “fixer” in me). It was a joy to watch Ann-Marie in action [during Skillful Means: The Coaching Skill Set] and realize that we don’t need to feel like we have all the answers for the client!
Jeanna SmithStudent CoachPhoenix, AZ
I am an already-certified coach from another coaching program, who took this course [Mentor Coaching] in order to meet the needs of re-certifying my ACC credential. Joining this group was a requirement, and thank goodness that it was. Watching fellow apprentices practice Mindfulness Coaching with each other has reignited my passion for coaching. I feel that I’ve found a new learning and coaching path thanks to the power of what I’ve seen and participated in. I look forward to learning more about mindfulness and how to apply it in my coaching practice. Even in short practice sessions, it seems to me that mindfulness tools deepen the experience exponentially! What a joy it has been. I can’t wait to learn more.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are is an amazing mindfulness coaching class that blew the doors open on coaching practices. A fresh, clean breeze blew in that allowed me to bring my whole self newly to coaching. As an experienced coach, I benefited greatly and I know I will use the skills and practices I learned for years to come.

I came away from [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] with the value of a blended learning program (virtual class, partner discussions, superb reading material, mediation approaches/tools, mindfulness practice applications), many classmate connections from around the world, a regular mediation practice, and a sense of a calm and compassionate world.

[Right Speech] was a transformative class for me and Meg Hess was an inspiring and compassionate teacher. I have had an abiding interest in the notion of Right Speech, so I was looking forward to taking this class and curious about how it would unfold. It was very gratifying to see the teachings and practices we learned making a real impact on my listening skills, as well as on my responses to life circumstances and even world events. I am certainly taking away a wider scope of curiosity and the communication and listening tools to more effectively investigate that curiosity, which, in turn, expands the scope of my compassion.

Business Alchemy helped me grow into and clarify my purpose in coaching. I was able to create the story of me that brought me to where I am and my passion to inspire others on their journey. Ann-Marie’s guidance through understanding service marketing was heartening, powerful and inspiring. Sarah’s encouragement and gentle way of pulling the essence of us to the surface was spectacular! Thank you both, as well as my fellow students, for an incredible experience! And I’m getting clients!
Brenda FaganStudent CoachNew Orleans, LA
I appreciated the online learning format for obtaining my EMDRIA credits and was glad to experience a taste of professional coaching. The class (The Dynamic Trio) made me curious about the process of transitioning from a clinical psychologist towards a professional coach. Thanks!

The course [S-T-R-E-T-C-H!] allowed me to ‘stretch’ my ability to practice what I preach. Philip was very competent and helpful to all of us. It was a great experience. Thank you Ann-Marie, Philip, and Brittany!
