Fall Presence-Based®Coaching I - Now Virtual!

I wasn't sure a training so somatic in nature would work well in a virtual environment. This proves that intention and passion trumps space and time. A virtual environment of care and compassion was created here that made us feel that we were right next to each other sharing space. In this current pandemic environment, this shows how we can still support, share and care for one another even if we cannot physically occupy the same space.

The Presence-Based® Coaching Course is a two part course. While PBC I is self-contained and will provide a strong foundation for coaching with presence, participants will only receive the benefits of the full model from attending the whole course. Completion of Presence-Based Coaching I is required before attending PBC II. Course fees include tuition, materials, and post-retreat virtual follow-up classes. Required pre-reading text for each retreat is not included (The Mindful Coach for PBC I; Presence-Based Coaching for PBC II.)

Considering the ongoing COVID-19 global situation, we have decided to hold our Fall PBC I & PBC II courses virtually. We have held all of our PBC I and PBC II courses virtually since May and they have been very well received by participants.

Logistics and registration details

    • Location: All North Carolina retreats are held at Bend of Ivy Lodge, a secluded and beautiful retreat center 20 minutes north of Asheville. Retreats include long hours, morning practices, and evening sessions.

If you have a special situation and prefer to stay offsite please let us know and we can offer options.

Please note any extenuating circumstances that require a single, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Note your request in the Comments field in the shopping cart, and you will be added to the wait-list. If upgrades become available, you will be notified in the order received, and be invited to confirm. Assume, however, that double occupancy is the norm.

If those conditions are not met, no refunds will be provided. See more details on cancellation policies on the Terms & Conditions page.

More about this program

The Presence-Based® Coaching Course is a two-part program. This course provides a pragmatic toolkit for accelerating your own development and that of those you serve. We focus on building and extending our own presence, and on specific coaching moves and models that awaken and support long term efficacy in our clients.

Attending will build your foundation of Presence-Based coaching skills, with a particular orientation toward developing the whole person. The course is grounded in a model of human development, leading toward the capacity to be present and a learner in all of life.

General Description

Each part consists of approximately two hours of pre-work, a three or four-day retreat, and two one-hour virtual follow-up classes. Part I: Being a Development Partner can be taken as a stand-alone program appropriate for any level of coaching experience. The focus in PBC I is on the presence of the practitioner. This focus on presence, coupled with a powerful architecture for the coaching conversation, invites the conditions for development.

Taken with Part II: Evoking Self-Generation, the entire course offers an entry into a coaching approach with considerable depth, challenging even for experienced practitioners.

Our overall promises for the Presence-Based Coaching Course are that you will build observable new competency in coaching, greatly enhance your coaching presence, contextualize your coaching in a robust model of human development, and be more self-generative in your own life.
