Wellness You At Your Best

What is your personal definition of wellness?
What will it take for you to live in wellness?
How will you know when you are there?

This class has been developed for coaches to create & live a personalized wellness lifestyle, while launching and/or developing their wellness coaching business. We will delve into the necessity of fun, connectedness, meaning, and contribution as they pertain to wellness, mindfulness, ICF Core Competencies, and Positive Psychology. Wellness coaching demonstrations and discussions are held throughout. This class is experiential through shared conversations and explorations in class, as well as with practice outside of class.

Assessments will be used to track individual progress while supporting each other through weekly coaching practice. This investigative curriculum is viewed through the holistic model of integrating the emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual, and physical realms.

We’ll examine leading-edge research from top neuroscientists, physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists: Richard Davidson, PhD • Matthieu Ricard, PhD • B. Allan Wallace, PhD • Daniel Seigel, M.D. • James Austin, M.D. • Neil Theise, M.D.

I loved this course. It was so inspiring and real and authentic and deep. I felt like I got a really good grasp of how powerful Wellness is… and wellness coaching, by extension. I liked all the tools that were brought in – NVC, Credos, wellness plans, assessments, etc. That made it all feel more concrete and DOABLE for me. I really liked the energy of the group as well.
