• Changing for Good by James Prochaska

As a core class, S-T-R-E-T-C-H! is required for any level of credentialing or certification through Mindfulness Coaching School. This class is ICF approved for CCEs and is part of our Approved Coaching Specific Training Program (ACTP).

Also offered in an Intensive model.

If you have the passion, time and energy to make a commitment to a new challenge, this 6 week STRETCH Intensive might be exactly what you are looking for.

This course provides the same content and opportunities as our regular 12-week STRETCH, exploring who and how you will be in the exciting world of coaching. To take advantage of the richness of this class make sure you can commit significant blocks of time for reading, reflection and connecting with other students, between the twice weekly classes.

Intensives aren’t for everyone, but this one might be perfect for you!

What Students Are Saying

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.

As a potential student, why might you consider taking this class? Here’s what instructor Phil Joudrey has to say…

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.
