Programme / Course Description

What happens when you start to view the world through your heart?

Opening up to more of your true potential. Instead of looking outside for what we need, heart-based meditation brings us strength from within. Moving back to our true nature and awakening the warmth that has always been there. Developing a strong intuitive trust and ability to perceive at a deeper level of insight.

​Over time we build up barriers and blocks to the heart. Compassionate transformative practices and insight meditations supports the gentle melting away of blocks and barriers.

This course will allow you to develop an in-depth understanding of transformational insight practices, healing visualisations and heart based meditation for your own development and/or to guide others.

​The Course

The course is designed to enable trainees to leave with the confidence, skills and knowledge to work as an independent practitioner coach. Many people take this course purely for personal transformation and change, without necessarily wishing to coach others.

The course is comprised of 8 modules.

These are delivered face to face and online.

The training is highly experiential and based on transformational coaching which encourages trainees to work deeply on themselves through daily practices, journaling and self study between sessions.

The course is supported by theory. Including psychology, science, meditation, spirituality and coaching.
