Being aligned in all aspects of life is the holistic approach that highly effective coaches and therapists know they must master.

somatics and spirituality enrich your professional practiceIn our combined 30 years of private practice, we’ve found somatics and spirituality are each profound ways to deepen your professional practice and make you even more outstanding and valuable to your clients. Which is why we’ve decided to make this the focus of our upcoming training – Professional Development: Somatics & Spirituality. 

Next training TBA – if interested please contact us to be added to our waiting list.

Rather than the majority of professional development trainings that focus on the mind and emotions, we’re going to explore ways to enrich the body and spirit as well.

Somatics creates a much higher self-awareness than traditional psychotherapy and personal-development coaching. The word somatic comes from the Greek root word “soma”, which means “the living body in its wholeness.” By learning somatic principles you’ll be able to incorporate the entire body in the coaching process, which leads to not only faster but longer-lasting results.  The body is a profound source of wisdom; helping your clients connect to this wisdom in themselves allows them to make even more rapid breakthroughs!

Spirituality is about knowing who you choose to be, the nature of your mission, and how this is connected to values that are larger than yourself. Spiritually inspired life coaches bring their own clarity about these issues to their clients as an additional source of transformation. This includes respectfully helping their clients define their own beliefs and values. Incorporating spirituality into your practice will help your clients connect on a deeper, more passionate level in every aspect of life.

  • Ethics are your understanding of right action, and the factors and values relevant to these choices.  Many clients will need support in clarifying their values and making difficult choices.
  • Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to the present moment with compassion towards yourself and others.  Many clients will benefit from support in developing consistent mindfulness practices and in building their skills in being compassionate.
  • The ability to choose your state of consciousness includes being able to choose your emotional and cognitive outlook and keeping yourself in a balanced mood.  It also includes knowing how to deliberately put yourself into “higher” states of consciousness.  This is the core skill that underlies mastery.  Strengthen this in yourself and also learn how to help your clients cultivate it as well.  

How Is This Program Different?

Our courses aren’t book learning. We offer highly-experiential courses, so you get hands-on guidance and feedback from our qualified trainers. It is a mix of lecture, discussion, live demonstrations and experiential practice.

We limit the group size so you get all your questions answered and you become highly skilled. Many students comment that the group connection they experience in IPL trainings is among the strongest they have had in their lives. Students are also supported in setting up personalized plans for further learning and practice following the conclusion of the class.
