I Tried Many Coaching Schools, But Finding MCS Was Like Finding Home

Dec 2, 2019

By Rosella Egione, PCC (new MCS graduate!)
Verona, Italy

As a mindfulness teacher and a graduate from two excellent coaching schools I still didn’t feel enriched nor even satisfied. I was ready and waiting for something new…something profound and yet loaded with a usable and practical path.

I waited a long time until I found MCS.

Then once enrolled I realized I was saying YES to being a coaching student once again and to my calling.

One of life’s greatest opportunities is to have appointments with our authentic selves to discover who we are. At MCS I am continually encouraged to understand the importance of knowing myself through honesty, trust and authenticity and, then, passing that on to my clients.

MCS has put together strong and diverse knowledges that allow me to work in the multilayered styles of mindfulness and somatic coaching.

Mindfulness Coaching is a true gift we give to ourselves and others. It is a powerful approach to awareness that I now incorporate into my individual and group sessions.

What surprised me most was the Somatic Coaching. Most of us have forgotten how to listen and follow our bodies’ guidance. At MCS I learned how our bodies continually speak to us with its’ intelligent wisdom and how invaluable they are in helping us make both ordinary and extraordinary decisions.

With the Mindfulness Coaching School I have integrated powerful channels of coaching. This enriching journey with the Mindfulness Coaching School is the beginning of something bigger!

“What is pulling on your sleeve?” was a question presented in [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness]. How often does someone actually ask you that or how often do you stop to really be mindful of what is present in you and pulling at you in the moment? I learned how to really dive into this feeling and capture the present in The Art of Engaged Mindfulness.

I really enjoyed the class Skillful Means and felt it was the perfect class to kick off my quest to become a certified Mindfulness Life Coach. In this class I was introduced to the Essential Coaching Skills to use in a co-active coaching relationship. The material is well presented, organized and unpacked at a moderate pace that I could easily digest.

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.

[The Dynamic Trio] was a great class that mixed experiential learning with incredible tools that I could use immediately with clients.  Ann-Marie was an incredible instructor with a myriad of knowledge and experience from many different backgrounds. I really appreciated her ability to interact so personally and intentionally with students in the class all while teaching a strong skill set.

I really enjoyed taking The Dynamic Trio: EMDR, Positive Psychology & Somatic Coaching. The course provided me with new knowledge and applications of the material, not just to use in my personal life but also to integrate what I learned into my practice as a mental health therapist… I appreciate Ann-Marie setting the mood for the group and laying the foundation for safety, acceptance and openness from the beginning.

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.

NVC is an incredible tool to utilize for my coaching practice but also to enhance and enjoy more fully my life and the one of the people around me. Srdjan is an incredible human being and a teacher. His gift is to be able to share his knowledge with authenticity and vulnerability. He is embodying NVC and he inspired me deeply. THANK YOU Read more

Right Speech is not only something you can take into your coaching practice but it’s something you can take into your personal life as well. These skills have already been extremely helpful in my everyday life from encounters with family to encounters with strangers and everything in between. You won’t regret taking it, I promise!

The Art of Engaged Mindfulness has been one of my favorite classes at the Mindfulness Coaching School. I truly appreciate how Ann-Marie has combined the science and spirit of mindfulness. She creates space for students to play and get creative with meditation and find their path to practice. And the resources provided for further learning are priceless!

This Mandala of beauty has been transformational for myself. I have been on a healing journey for many decades and this class [Skillful Means] supported even more progress on my journey. I have recommended this class and will continue to recommend this class and this wonderful school.
