My dreams have become my greatest teacher in this life. Inspiring new desires of my physical being, quenching my thirst for knowledge and growth while continually reminding me of my ever-present loving connection with Creation.

Over the past few years, I have been learning the wisdom of dreams and how to utilize them in my physical life. Seven years ago, I went through some deep disappointments that popped the bubble of who I thought I was and who I desired to be. In the period that followed, my physical being was depressed. Little did I know, this “deep-rest” would open a doorway into my inner being, leading to great expansion and deep nourishment. I now recognize this as the greatest treasure I have ever known.

In this deep-rest state, seven years ago, I had little interest in physical reality. In losing my zest for life I would often withdraw into sleep, giving up the constraints of the physical reality for the ease of the dream world. I started to realize how much flow and freedom existed within. I began to experience vivid dreams bundled with fulfilling connective feelings. In waking life, the limitations of my physical conditions still felt all too limiting and overwhelming compared to the freedom I deeply desired and continued to realize in my dreams.

I tended to my physical reality minimally and took frequent naps finding respite and going deep within my inner consciousness. Gradually, I began to value my dream world beyond the rest and relief it offered, realizing it had an intelligent consciousness of its own. I began to record my dreams after waking, and over time, recalling dreams came as natural to me as remembering an outing with a friend. 

I learned to enjoy the depths of my consciousness, discovering new realities and bringing them back into my waking life. By remembering the dreams, the feelings and the symbols I began to decode my inner beliefs and see the threads of connection between the two worlds of waking and dreaming. When waking and working with my dream symbols, I noticed the dreams showed moments of the next day.

Many times, my dreams were as vivid and real as any physical event I could imagine, the colors and sounds orchestrated in such magnificent beauty, equivalent to any vivacious party in the physical realm. These powerful feelings and sensations filled and enriched my being as I awoke into a form as valid and real as anything I have known in this life.

As the years continued, I began to emerge from this dream cave of solitude I had created, bringing the jewels I found from my inner consciousness into my physical, daytime consciousness.  I learned that different dreams serve different purposes…

This school has changed my life in a incredibly positive way. MCS speaks to my soul, and I am more present with my clients, my partner, my children and in my life because of what I’ve learned at MCS. I get so excited when the academic calendar is released, I feel so grateful for this school and I am so thankful that I have found this school.

I quickly started looking forward to Tuesday evenings. I never knew what the take away (from class) would be, but came to recognize it would be rich and meaningful – whether it was from my own process or through witnessing the process and collaboration with my colleagues.

Ann-Marie is a great coach and instructor. Watching her coach others and myself was a great way to learn the coaching skills. Loved the energy and atmosphere she has created during the course and maintaining the focus on learning and growth of each end every one of us. Fun, playful and full of interaction and great content.

Learning how to listen deeply to the wisdom of the body and to trust that we are fluent in our own somatic language has provided such a valuable coaching tool and life practice.

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.

I’m very happy and grateful for participating in The Dynamic Trio. I now have knowledge and experience of coaching with additional dimensions; EMDR and positive psychology work amazingly well together. I loved the holistic approach of coaching, this was just what I was looking for (moving the focus and energy from head to body)! I want to thank everyone who participated in this wonderful class – I enjoyed learning, working, laughing and crying with my class mates very much – such an open environment supports everyone’s development greatly! Thank you, Ann-Marie, for sharing your wisdom and kindness and being absolute inspiration for me!

Even with 20 years experience in marketing, I found Business Alchemy energized me to try on a shifted focus and help me look at all aspects of my branding in new, creative ways. Adding more tools (technology) to my resource quiver gave me options for expression and let me know I don’t always have to hire someone to do what I need for graphic expression. Sarah and Ann Marie were a dynamic combo and made the experience well worth it

I was reluctant to take this course [Mindful Eating: Mindful Life] as I have struggled with eating disorders since my teens. I didn’t want yet another “eating plan” that would add more clutter to my already busy thoughts about food. I honestly only took the class because it was required for PCC and I came in thinking that maybe I could learn something to help my clients. But honestly, I learned a ton about myself, my thoughts about food and eating, as well as many tools and ideas to use with my clients.
Chelle JohnsonStudent CoachAlbany, Oregon
This class is a terrific investigation of the ways that mindfulness and meditation can support both the coach and client, with specific practices, tips for consistency, and scientific evidence all explored. I learned new skills for leading meditation class, supporting client well being, and deepening my own meditation practice.
