|Coaching As Yoga: a union
with knowing and doing
For years I've professed
that developmental coaching is the most sophisticated
form of meditation on the planet. When done in the art
of yoga, coaching is elevated to an entirely new
frequency of being.
The first thing I want to say, is that coaching as a
yoga is NOT for everyone. The person who is most likely
to enjoy and benefit from this expose has the following
- love of learning
- dedicated to self-improvement
- probably growing weary of training
- interested in accessing higher faculties
- open to new experiences in relating to other
- identified with a spiritual path
While those are only some of the reasons you might be
drawn to this experience, I think you'll agree that
these ideas are essential to continuous fulfillment.
As I continue to travel around the world I find more
and more people who are out of sync with the world they
live in. I find people searching for more than just a
weekend experience or the latest guru, but looking for a
different way of being--to stand aside from the daily
bread-making, to look deeper into themselves for their
If working with your strengths appeals to you, then
coaching as yoga will delight you.
Here's what I've done.
I've taken the methodology I've been teaching for
more than 10 years now and will create for you right
before your eyes your next evolution in your own
learning--in a journey of you.
I'll meet with you twice per week for 13 weeks
beginning May 23, 2006 and guide you along a path of the
most profound meditation you'll experience.
I apologize ahead of time to those of you who think
meditation is going to be silence and breathing. While
sometimes we'll be silent, and we'll breathe, this form
of meditation or yoga/union is literally learned with
other people and in engagement with others...there is no
It is the reason that I think it's such a
In the world today, almost any guru you'll find will
show you how to go inward...but almost none of them
(I'll assume there are some I have not met who can) will
show you how to go outward for union.
In my resilience work, my coaching interactions and
in my work around the world, I constantly see the
world's growth and maturity stymied, not by inward
growth, but by the lack of ability to really listen to
people and frame inquiry in such a way as to bring out
the talents in people.
So much of the world today depends on trying to
change people, instead of helping people find their true
self, accept themselves and offer their gifts and
talents to others--in union.
Coaching As Yoga provides you with an entirely new
lease on your life and the life of your relationship,
work and contribution.
If you're looking for a way to add this skill to your
coaching, training, consulting, facilitation, or
mentoring, or you're just someone who wants to learn
this meditation with us, I can show you the basics,
mastery is up to you.
This is an experiential program, you may take some
notes, there are NO handouts, but I will record to audio
the classes in case you wish to review them or you have
to miss some of them.
For those who want to parlay this program into coach
training qualification, I'll provide you with direction
on how to accomplish that as well.
We will hold two opportunities for the class to meet
upon completion, one being in Sept 2006 in Jackson Hole,
Wyoming, and the other being in Dehli, India in October
2006. For those coming to Dehli, I'll personally escort
you to the Taj Mahal during one of our days
Of course, all retreat fees ($499 US), travel, hotel,
meals and expenses are NOT included, but what I will do
is give you the opportunity to experience this work with
me for $297.
This audio program provides you with a powerful tool
to understand how to integrate spirituality into your
life, work and relationships through coaching.
There are no out of class assignments required, there
is no homework, there is nothing to do but show up,
listen, breathe and practice during the hour with me as
I show you the technology of this yoga through this
self-paced audio exploration of COACH2 System.
