For several years, we have offered virtual courses on special topics. These are intended as continuing education for our community of coaches, and also as resources for others interested in Presence-Based Coaching. ICF CCE’s are provided.
The two courses described below are not part of our certification course of study, but rather complement it and provide a deeper dive into one specific aspect of this work. We offer these virtual courses occasionally, check the training calendar for any offerings.
We communicate what we care about to others through language. Language is how we describe and make sense of the world to ourselves and to others. Language is how we justify our actions. Language arises from, and creates, the felt sense in our bodies.
In short, language is inseparable from our aliveness, our commitments, and our generativity.
For ourselves, as well as for our coaching clients, awareness of habits dramatically increases our range of choice and possibility. This virtual course explores patterns in language as a lens for:
In this retreat, we explore new distinctions in language. We discover clues and guidance for accelerating the natural process of our developmental unfolding. We investigate how our language both arises from and shapes soma. This process invites an integration of linguistic and somatic coaching moves that engage the whole self in learning.
Bebe Hansen, partnering with Carolyn Coughlin, an internationally known consultant/coach in the Kegan lineage of constructive developmental theory and practice. Together, they will teach, practice, demonstrate, and open new conversations around developmental coaching with a focus on language and the body. Consistent emphasis will be on applying this work with clients.
As in the popular Experiential Neuroplasticity course, participants can anticipate a rich experiential approach that focuses on your own developmental journey, while providing pragmatic distinctions and methods you can immediately integrate into your coaching.
11.25 ICF CCE’s are included.
The limits of my language are the limits of my world
We are coming to understand the remarkable truth that we can permanently influence the structures, defaults, and resilience of our nervous system through how we direct our attention in the midst of moment-by-moment experience.
Over six sessions, we explore how to coach the whole nervous system, using subjective experience as a doorway to sustainable, physiologically supported change. We work with inclusive and directed awareness, self-observation and awareness mapping of mind states, and accessing and embodying congruence. We integrate these tools and frameworks into our self-work and into our coaching with others, holding coaching as an evolutionary act of meta-leadership.
This virtual course has been offered, and sold out, twice. The course offers an exploration, in depth, of some of the foundational science and philosophy for Presence-Based Coaching, along with practices and coaching applications. It does NOT provide a complete coaching model. Rather, this course is a rich supplement to our core training program which, because of demand, we have opened to the public. 11.25 ICF CCE’s are included.
