Colorado, Let’s Get Wild : Your True Nature Coaching – September 20-23, 2020

(Not only for coaches), 16 CEUs for ICF coaches available

Join us for an inspiring few days of coaching skill-building and practice in the wonderful wild nature of Colorado’s mountains. Expand your coaching and move beyond “talk coaching” to step into nature.

Nature offers the opportunity to experience questions and musings and discoveries in a completely new surrounding. Nature allows us to walk our talk, choose a different path, experience getting lost and finding our way again. In nature, we can still ourselves and listen to our bodies, hearts and souls.

With nature as our profound partner, coaches and those using coaching as a way to support others, can use age-old processes to support setting intention; create deep, personal journeys of self-discovery; and facilitate meaningful re-entry and integration through coaching. Particularly during major transitions, these rites of passage ~ some call ‘soul searching’ ~ can propel the coachee to new awareness, new discovery, and a natural sense of well-being.

Learn how to create and use sacred coaching spaces and times as well as ancient processes for modern times in your coaching business. Be in nature to re-member your own true nature and life story.

In this ICF CCE program, learn how to shape and guide your coachees using nature as your partner.
