I Did It! I Met the Deadline!

May 11, 2021

Or did “I”?

Mac brainstormed another way to hold and apply the brush.
Lydia advised which type of canvas was best and why.
Brittany gave me protected space.
T-Bird showed me the Aisle of Iridescence.
David reminded me to unplug. Totally.
Dr. Sam aka Simmone coached me to get to the other side.
Catherine rephotographed at the last minute to meet the 7″ x 7″, 300 dpi requirements.
Zana was my listening ear when the gremlins needed to be put onto the back parking lot.

“I” didn’t do it. It was the Strong Mountain Mandala that did it.

“I” was just fortunate to be at the center of the mandala this time around.

Right Speech simply knocked my socks off. I eagerly read every book, every article or other reference with delight. I cannot begin to say how much I learned about myself in this course and how I can apply things like non-violent communication, vulnerability, and the 12 Pathways to my everyday life, both personally and professionally. Taking this course in tandem with The Art of Engaged Mindfulness could not have been a better pairing. I look forward to taking every course that you offer.
Karen J. SidesStudent CoachKerrville, TX
I thoroughly enjoyed The Art of Engaged Mindfulness… The format of the course enabled me to learn about the impact of meditation and therefore choose to fit more meditation into my lifestyle. Through the class, I expanded my knowledge of meditation and mindfulness, strengthened my practice, and met some great people. Special thanks to Ann-Marie, who shared her enormously rich insights, experience, and tools to help us become more effective in minding our mind.

I enjoyed The Dynamic Trio course immensely. Learning new and effective techniques that I can use in my practice is just what I was looking for in this course. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for new ways to expand their knowledge and life coaching practices.

I have taken other sales and marketing courses for coaching, but I prefer the “big picture” approach of this one, which links one’s vision to the sales and marketing process rather than simply pushing the idea of closing a coaching “sale.” Focusing on the client’s well-being and what we have to offer is much more value-driven for me.

Skillful Means: The Coaching Skill Set was essential to building my toolbox as a coach. I feel that my range of skills have broadened and that my clients can be served much better.

Taking Right Speech with Meg was an inspirational journey. Her expertise, kindness, strength, and dedication to the class and the students came through so fully. I came away seeing that coaching is not just helping people set goals and move towards them, but also has the potential to be a sacred container where people wake up and see their true essence and their gifts and can develop the confidence to bring their dreams to fruition. Very powerful!
Beth ReiterStudent CoachLangkey, Washington
I loved this course [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness]! It brought me strength, understanding and joy at getting to know myself in a different and more substantive way. I am already using my learning to be a better coach for my clients. My gratitude for this course overflows!

Right Speech is about listening with our whole beings. This class is about more than communication… it is about being in the world fully alive! Thank you!

Another wonderful course with Ann-Marie. Learning about and implementing aspects of Positive Psychology, Signature Strengths and the Wheel of Life are valuable tools both for self-growth and helping others achieve their goals. Wonderful coaching sessions and discussions in a warm, comfortable and engaging setting.
