Shamanic Teacher and Guide Anahata Ananda of Shamangelic Healing Center in Sedona, Arizona announces the return of her dynamic Shamangelic Breathwork Facilitator Training Course this fall, October 25-26. This popular 2-day intensive incorporates guided visualization, holotropic breathwork and other techniques to facilitate a profoundly personal Sacred Journey of the soul.

Sedona, Arizona (PRWEB) July 30, 2017

Shamangelic Breathwork Teacher and Shamanic Healer Anahata Ananda of Shamangelic Healing, Sedona Arizona's Premier Center for Shamanic Healing and Spiritual Awakening, is proud to offer her powerful Shamangelic Breathwork Facilitator Training, Level III, a unique hands-on professional level training intensive like no other. The weekend training will again be held at Shamangelic Healing Center, among the healing energies of Sedona's beautiful red rocks and vortex energy centers, October 2526, 2017.

This two-day training course is a powerful complement to the two previous levels, Empowerment & Awakening and Healing Tools & Modalities, and part of a 12-day training intensive offered at the Center that lay the foundations for energy healing, setting boundaries, using healing tools, hands on healing techniques and more that prepare participants to be Breathwork facilitators.

Shamanic breathing is the practice of using breath, sound and touch to affect emotional clearing and attract angelic support to clear density and awaken one's true essence. Because of the intense and powerful nature of Shamangelic Breathwork, and the comprehensive training and experience facilitators require, the Empowerment & Awakening and Healing Tools & Modalities courses are prerequisites to this course.

Shamangelic Breathwork Facilitator Training draws on all the previous coursework in this powerful and transformational intensive. It will explore one of the most complex practices for core healing and spiritual awakening, providing various techniques to illicit deeper emotional releases, shifts and expansion than the earlier training.

The Level III course also teaches how to support someone through their process of releasing past traumas, shows facilitators how to set sacred space and conduct it as a ceremonial offering, reveals effective methods for bringing participants back into their bodies after a shamanic journey, and gives a practicum on co-facilitating a live Shamangelic Breathwork ceremony.

Deep Shamanic breathing has been found to facilitate profound emotional release, open new channels of awareness and clear toxicity in the body. This sacred journey incorporates guided visualization, Shamangelic Breathwork, vibrational sound, soulful music, energy healing, Shamanic tools, crystal therapy and lightbody expansion techniques to facilitate a personal Sacred Shamanic Journey into the depths of one's soul. Participants will come away from this comprehensive course empowered and confident to lead themselves and others on soulful, in-depth shamanic breathing journeys.

Shamangelic Healing offers 12-day training intensives at the Center that lay the foundations for energy healing, setting personal boundaries, using healing tools, hands on healing techniques, and more that prepare participants to be Breathwork facilitators.

Shamanic Healer and Spiritual Counselor, Anahata Ananda has trained extensively with gifted shamans, energy healers and spiritual teachers from around the world in order to artfully integrate the fields of spirituality, energy healing, self-empowerment, and shamanic teachings. Her client-base spans the globe with individuals from all walks of life who are seeking to heal and awaken to their fullest potential.

Anahata also offers Shamangelic Tailored Retreats in Sedona that offer a wide range of private sessions to meet the needs of students and clients for their core healing, spiritual awakening or individualized training. Sessions may include Shamanic healing, sacred vortex journeys, Shamangelic Breathwork, Chakra Balancing, Meditation Practices, Tools for Healthy Conscious Relationships, specific training and much more.

Kathleen Mitchell obituary – The Guardian

Posted: at 2:31 pm


without comments

Kathleen Mitchell, who has died aged 100, was a pioneering figure in the early years of comprehensive education in England. A radical thinker, as head of Pimlico school, central London, in the 1970s she created in effect the first state specialist music school. She had been equally innovative in developing pastoral care and social education at Starcross school in north London.

Kathleen came from a generation of strong, articulate women who dominated state education in London in the 60s and 70s. She believed in the power of education to change lives and saw access to the arts as crucial to achieving her goal.

When she became head at Pimlico in 1974 she inherited a big school with discipline problems. In response, she developed a rich curriculum to engage students from all backgrounds. The school had its own symphony orchestra, and a chamber orchestra, and had close links to the London Schools Symphony Orchestra. Every year 15 students were picked by the Inner London Education Authority (Ilea) to become part of the schools special course for musicians, and many went on to become professionals.

Kathleens personal life revolved around music: her second husband, Donald Mitchell, was a well-known writer on music, particularly on Gustav Mahler, and went on to set up the publishing house Faber Music with Benjamin Britten. The Mitchells became good friends with Britten and his partner, Peter Pears, and the Pimlico schools choir and orchestra appeared in Brittens Noyes Fludde at the Aldeburgh festival. The work is based on the account of Noahs flood given in the Chester Mystery Plays, and towards the end of his life the composer had been planning a new stage work, A Christmas Sequence, for the school, adapted from the same source.

The adult world that Kathleen inhabited was a huge contrast to her beginnings she was living proof of her belief in personal empowerment. Born in London, she grew up in West Norwood. She was always close to her mother, Trudy (nee Johnson), who ran a coffee shop. Her father, Charles Burbidge, a post office worker, was fond of the local pub and a less than constant presence in her life. Her brother Reg, an RAF pilot, was killed in the second world war.

Kathleen loved her local grammar school, but university was out of the question until she earned some money. She worked at the London County council as a secretary, then enrolled in evening classes at Birkbeck College, where she studied history and met her future husband, David Livingston.

He had always wanted to start his own school and Mitchell was enthused. In 1939 they set up Oakfield school, in Dulwich, south-east London. It flourished and became a draw for talented teachers.

The couple married in 1940, with Kathleen already pregnant with her son, Mark. She did not care much for convention and what would have been considered scandalous in peacetime was noticed less during the war.

Among the teachers who came to Oakfield school was Donald, who was younger, and a conscientious objector during the war. They began a passionate affair and around 1950 she left her first marriage.

Kathleen and Donald set up home together and she began teaching at Hammersmith comprehensive; they married in 1956. She was talent-spotted by a school inspector and became deputy head at Dick Sheppard comprehensive in Tulse Hill. While there, she and her husband adopted two boys, Bernie and Keith.

In 1964 Kathleen became head of Starcross girls school in Camden. The following year it merged with another school, Risinghill, to create a 1,200 girls comprehensive under the Starcross name, which later became the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson school in Islington.

When Gladys West joined the school as a teacher in 1967, she found Kathleen to be an inspirational head. After she addressed us at the beginning of the year we walked out feeling that we could conquer the world. We felt empowered and enabled.

The school was a laboratory for Kathleens ideas. Many of the girls came from extremely deprived backgrounds and she was empathetic and supportive. Arts was embedded in the curriculum, including dance. Sir Peter Newsam, who became chief education officer for the Ilea in 1975, remembered his first visit to the school. I went to her school and there were two very overweight girls dancing to I Am a Rock, and they were bloody good. I still remember the look on the faces of those two girls when the audience of children and parents applauded them. It was a school that valued people.

This was Kathleens trademark: everyone mattered. To that end she developed strong pastoral support for the girls, and for the most disaffected she devised an alternative curriculum covering sex education, citizenship and community service. It was so successful that the number of girls leaving school at 15 dwindled, and Mitchell extended it to the whole school, a precursor of what became known as personal, social and health education PSHE.

Kathleen would explore many ways to motivate difficult students rather than exclude them. Some girls could attend college for part of the week and she established an off-site unit staffed by experts in behaviour management. At the same time she introduced programmes for high-achieving girls and established a link with Sussex University. If they came from homes where no one had been to university, she ensured they had extra support.

But all this did not mean discipline was lax. Mitchell believed structures were important for children. My job as head is to set up an organisation that works. I dont think it would be any good having marvellous ideas if one couldnt be efficient in a school. But its no good organising so that the humanity is out of it ... the human side is important and takes priority on every occasion.

Kathleen became a magnet for ambitious teachers, many of whom went on to become heads themselves. She set up a pioneering workplace nursery to encourage teachers who had had children to return to work. She attracted staff who had made their names in other fields, among them the feminist historian Sheila Rowbotham and the cartoonist Glen Baxter.

At Pimlico, she still had fresh ideas in abundance: she ensured form tutors stayed with their class for a full five years; she brought in architects to develop the Front Door project, getting children to draw their journey to school and think about how its environment could be improved; and she invited students from Imperial College to work with students in science lessons.

During her time at the school she developed painful arthritis. John Bancrofts grade II listed building was full of stairs and became difficult for her, and she retired as a head in 1979. She continued, though, to develop a sixth-form enrichment programme across London.

In the late 80s her activities were curtailed by her loss of sight following a bout of shingles. After 50 years of living in Bloomsbury, she and Donald moved to a nursing home in Camden earlier this year.

She is survived by Donald and their son Keith, her son, Mark, from her first marriage, and three granddaughters and five grandsons. Bernie died in 2014.

Kathleen Gertrude Mitchell, educationist, born 26 November 1916; died 22 May 2017

Susan Lake and Laura Meeks, life coaches, to speak – Idyllwild Town Cier

Posted: at 2:31 pm


without comments

Susan Lake and Laura Meeks, both life coaches who focus on living ones dream and personal empowerment, tell their stories at the Idyllwild Library.

Lake is small and energetic, using her career as a writer/designer artist as a platform to coach her audiences about how to use their creative energies to find personal fulfillment.

Meeks, a Minnesota native, is tall, laid back and folksy, telling her story of change with gentle humor, humility and total absence of ego.

Lake began her career as a music educator, with a degree in Music Education from the University of Bridgeport. She fashioned a successful career as a performer, teacher, educator, director, producer and designer.

Meeks dreamed as a kid in rural Minnesota of flying planes, because, as she remembered, If you can fly planes, you can get out of Minnesota. That dream would lead Meeks to becoming one of only 25 people in the U.S. certified to occupy all four seats on a B-52 bomber pilot, copilot, navigator and bombardier.

But that was when Laura was Laurence and that is the story shell be telling of how she realized a truth about herself, and, with the help of her wife Annie, was able to authentically embrace that truth.

When I met Annie, we were both in the Air Force, said Meeks. But early on in our marriage, I started to recognize this fantasy of being a woman. Annie and I talked. I remember this specific discussion. Annie asked, Do you want to live as a woman? I answered I didnt know. Then, Annie said, Heres the deal. I will continue step by step forward and giving it my best. Then I said, Ill slow this down so that we have time to adjust. Weve been married for 31 years.

Both Lake and Meeks counsel on finding the courage and support structures to dream and become ones most creative and authentic self. Lake and Meeks have their own takes on how to do that. Both are published authors and have built successful careers as life coaches.

Meeks, after retiring as a major in the Air Force, formed a multi-million-dollar consulting firm ThinkQ Inc. with wife Annie. Meeks now uses that corporate expertise and management experience as part of her life-coaching presentations.

Lakes transformational and self-empowerment discussions are driven by her artists point of view. She teaches creativity as a keystone to living a life that matters to the individual, and contributes to the wider community and the world. We are all artists and its accessing our creativity that helps us manifest who we are from the inside out, said Lake.

Meeks talks of how freeing it was to have the support of Annie as she made her transition from Laurence to Laura. Do you know how hard it is for most men to keep a secret like that? she asked. Its like holding a brick at arms length for 24 hours a day. Annies an incredibly powerful woman and together we were able to choose a path that was worth living. We grew up together in our marriage.

Two women talk empowerment techniques and tell their life stories Living Bold and Laurence to Laura at the library from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 5. There is no charge to attend these talks and all are invited.

Marshall Smith has been writing for the Town Crier since 2005. His favorite quote is: '"Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not." Robert Kennedy quoting George Bernard Shaw

Distinguished Young Women inspire Westminster Boys and Girls – Carroll County Times

Posted: July 9, 2017 at 8:41 am


without comments

Though they were just a day away from their state competition, the participants in the Distinguished Young Women national scholarship program took the time Friday morning to volunteer with the children of the Boys & Girls Club of Westminster.

Winners of local DYW competitions all over Maryland gathered in Carroll this week in preparation for the state competition on Saturday at Carroll Community College, where they will have the chance to earn more than $15,000 in scholarships. Two Carroll residents, Brooke Nixon, of Maryvale Preparatory School, and, Elena Rippeon, of Francis Scott Key High School, will compete.

The service day was a part of the nationwide Be Your Best Self Program, a DYW outreach effort that encourages young people to excel in five ways be studious, be ambitious, be healthy be involved and be responsible.

At the Boys & Girls Club on Friday morning, the children rotated through five stations run by the DYW participants, one for each goal of the program.

Nixon, the Carroll County DYW representative, worked with her partner Sandra Karsly, the Eastern Shore representative, at the Be Studious station. They asked the groups what they wanted to be when they grew up and had them draw a picture of themselves in that role. Nixon and Karsly then asked the boys and girls what school subjects could help them achieve their goals.

During the activity, even the youngest members of the Boys & Girls Club had strong ideas about what they wanted to be in the future. Their answers ranged from paleontologist to professional athlete.

Nixon said that education has always been important to her and that is one reason she participates in the DYW program. "It's helping me to become a better role model myself as I prepare for college," she said.

Rippeon, the DYW from Greater Westminster, and her partner Beyonce Carrington, the DYW from Frederick County, came up with a "heads-up" game featuring well-known men and women to help teach their groups how to "Be Ambitious."

Rippeon said ambition can be a tricky concept to teach to younger children, but she hoped the activity would make it fun for them to think about possibilities for their future.

After each player guessed the name they were assigned whether an athlete, celebrity, businessperson, movie character, politician or humanitarian Carrington and Rippeon asked the group to consider why that person was so well known.

Rippeon said she initially joined DYW because of the opportunity to earn scholarships. "But I realized that it is much more about learning life skills," she said.

Carrington agreed. She said the most rewarding part of DYW is "empowering young women to do the things they want to do and not be pushed down by men or society plus it's fun."

As part of the Be Your Best Self Program, Rippeon learned that there is a Be Your Best Self Patch available through the Girl Scouts of the USA. Previously, this patch had only been awarded to Girl Scouts in Alabama, where the DYW program is headquartered. As part of her service as a DYW, Rippeon decided to help Maryland Girl Scouts earn the patch. She succeeded and several will be awarded on Saturday at the state competition.

The competition will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Scott Center of Carroll Community College. Participants are judged in five categories: scholastics, interview, talent, titness, and self-expression.

The scholarship and interview portions are judged before the Saturday night competition. Chairman of DYW of Carroll County Amy Hackett said the many categories of the competition can make it more appealing to girls who fear that the competition is a beauty pageant. "It's really about being a well-rounded individual," she said.

Having worked with the program for several years, she said she is always impressed with the participants.

"These girls are the best of the best," she said. "The amount of community service they do is amazing."

The winner of the Maryland competition will be eligible to compete at the National Finals Competition in Mobile, Alabama, in 2018. The the winner will take home a $30,000 scholarship and runners-up will receive scholarships as well.

The Secrets of Personal Empowerment

Posted: May 22, 2016 at 12:44 pm


without comments

When someone engages in a behavior thats a problem, the reason they do it is irrelevant. If we try too hard to understand the behavior, before long well find ourselves excusing it and eventually enabling it.

Ive recently completed a series of articles on the types of behavior frequently displayed by persons with disturbed characters. Those behaviors interfere with the process of healthy socialization and also frequently serve as mechanisms to manipulate and impression-manage others. (See Understanding the Dysfunctional Tactics of Disturbed Characters.)

In a new series of articles, well be discussing the keys to empowering oneself not only in relationships with disturbed characters, but in all social interactions. The principal secrets of personal empowerment are twofold:

Once the main principals are grasped, there are specific methods or tools a person can employ to keep from being taken advantage of in relationships with unscrupulous characters. Several articles to come will take a look at each of these tools of empowerment and how to apply them in everyday situations.

In previous articles, Ive mentioned how one of the most problematic legacies of traditional psychology is the notion that peoples behavior is motivated most of the time by their fears and insecurities and that they are not often consciously aware of their emotional issues. Most of us are familiar with the tenets of traditional psychology. So, when somebody does something unnerving we almost always try to understand it by asking ourselves what need, fear, or insecurity underlies it. Worst of all, often the leap is made from understanding the behavior to inadvertently excusing it or enabling it.

The single most important empowerment tool is to accept no excuses for hurtful, harmful, or inappropriate behavior. Once a person stops trying to explain or understand a behavior and simply sets a limit to no no longer accept it, everything begins to change. Learning to correctly identify and label the various problem behaviors that disturbed characters frequently display as well as learning how to respond to those behaviors is equally empowering.

So, we begin the process of empowerment by accepting no excuses. When someone engages in a behavior thats a problem, the reason they do it is irrelevant. If we try too hard to understand the behavior, before long well find ourselves excusing it and eventually enabling it. If a behavior is wrong, it needs to be corrected, purely and simply. And we need to hold one another accountable. Its the only way to stem the stunningly rising tide of character disturbance in our culture. We complete the process of empowerment by learning how to conduct ourselves in a wide variety of situations in which persons of deficient or disturbed characters may throw a host of problem behaviors at us. By recognizing their tactics, labeling them correctly, responding to them effectively, and holding the disturbed character accountable for change, anyone can learn the secrets of not being taken advantage of or exploited.

Accepting no excuses is the first and cardinal rule, but there are many others. Well explore them all in upcoming posts.

Series On Personal Empowerment at Psychology, Philosophy …

Posted: March 12, 2016 at 12:44 am


without comments

The following articles are related to Series On Personal Empowerment at Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life.

Human beings have one amazing power, but one power only the power of choice.

Our conceptualizations of the situations we find ourselves in can not only place us at a disadvantage, but can literally do us harm.

Theres no need to red flag action that youre willing to take if the disturbed character wont change. Dont threaten, just take action.

In the course of human relations, we frequently make agreements with one another. Because disturbed characters are not reliable, trustworthy, or prone to play fairly, making any kind of agreements with them can be a risky business indeed.

If you find yourself drained in a relationship, chances are youre doing way too much to make things work and not keeping the weight of responsibility where it belongs.

Ultimately, people have power only over one thing: the execution of their free will.

A person always loses power when they fail to set and enforce reasonable limits.

Testimonials

Glenda Fraser, PEP Participant 2015

"I appreciated so much my opportunity to come to PEP. I was more than amazed by the program. it was such a privilege being amongst so many volunteers and being in an environment where our only purpose was to bring the best out of and acknowledge the best in everyone. I found the universality of the power of good alive and well at PEP, where true and enduring values were the overwhelming theme, and much love and acceptance was generated, It was a powerful experience, one I hope never to forget.

Thank you PEP and WYI. - Glenda Fraser, PEP Participant 2015"

Caitlin Murphy, Past Participant 2011

"PEP was a powerful force: a process of waking up and returning to authentic connections. It was a meeting of so many incredible people with energy and drive that kick-started an inner fire in many of us. There was such openness and potential in everyone, and a creative element to the program that was very special. read more

I now feel much more peaceful, balanced and healthy; I feel ready to live passionately and bravely. I can start to trust the way I want to live. I now feel more comfortable in my own skin. I feel I respect myself more, and I respect others' development. I now feel I have the potential to act and to engage freely with others. I now feel part of a powerful movement of change, and take comfort in the fact that many others are driven by the same conviction. I feel resilient and alive.

Sarah Abrahamse, Past Participant 2010

To be honest I spent a great deal of the weekend being overwhelmed about what was going on around me. I tried my hardest to soak up all I could in terms of ideas, stories, experiences and lessons learnt from others by relating or comparing them to my own. I found that the gathering of like minds allowed incredible growth in a very subtle way. I truly believe that together we created a powerful force, a force that is hard to explain, a force that can really only be felt, a force that despite distance, despite the immensity of issues of the world we were considering, despite the unclear solutions, despite it all, a force that remains. What occurred within those four days will always be evident; our force will continue to develop as we continue to feel empowered. It is through this force that I find hope. I find comfort in the fact that our legacy is not over. I find comfort in the idea that I believe in the people I met, I believe they are powerful, and the fact is that through these beliefs I find strength which enables me to also believe in myself.

One of the most beautiful things I took away from this experience was the ability to embrace diversity. We all entered at different stages on our journey, throughout our time together we experienced different emotions, had our own realisations and dealt with things in our own way. People are unique. So often we forget how imperative that concept is. I found myself in the company of like minded people yet I still felt like my own person. I was on my own journey, but I was not alone. This idea highlighted that we all need each other in our simplest form in order to exist. The program highlighted my favourite concept from Africa, 'Ubuntu'- I am what I am, because of who we all are, I am because we are. We affirm our humanity when we acknowledge that of others. My humanity is caught up and inextricably bound in yours. I feel so privileged to have been a part of this program, to be apart of a family, a force, a movement that ignites my passions and gives me hope."

Aimee Pitt, Past Participant 2010

"Friendship, challenge, love, fear, liberation: such small words that bring forth such intense memories of my time at PEP. I went simply because I wanted to catch up with like-minded people and learn some leadership skills. Surpassing all expectations, these things were only two of the many things I gained. I wasn't prepared for the soul battering experience I received, and for that I am blessed. Although only lasting for several days, WYI's Personal Empowerment Program is the climax to the most life changing journey I have ever been on. All the lessons I learnt about myself on my OAP were tested and solidified. Things that I had "known" for years were finally given meaning and understood. Self doubts that I'd been living with since I was a child were brought to the surface and eliminated. There were tears, there was laughter and above all there was empowerment. I am now in a position to take charge of my life and overcome fear- the cage that binds us all. I now fully realise that challenges are what helps the soul grow. The more vulnerabilities and dreams I make public, the more I inspire others to push their own boundaries and discover hidden strengths. I am responsible, I am powerful; I am the change. And so are you. Led by the most inspiring, generous people I have ever met, the Personal Empowerment Program is an opportunity you don't want to miss."

Our Personal Empowerment Coach Certification is designed for the woman who is either ready to launch her coaching business or is already an expert in her chosen field and would love to add Certified Personal Empowerment Coach to her practice or therapy.

Throughout this course, you will work closely with Professor Izabela Viskupova, L.L.M., M.A., and The S.W.A.T. Institutes Founder, Crystal Andrus Morissette, in receiving all the the practical and theoretical guidance youll need in order to fully master your coaching skills.

Professor Izabela graduated with a Masters degree in Law at the Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia. Later, she earned another Masters degree in Psychology, from the University of Glasgow, Scotland; she also holds a Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland and is a Master Empowerment Coach certified by The S.W.A.T. Institute.

Divided into three modules, the Personal Empowerment Coach Certification is brilliantly designed to give you specific interventions that will enable you to help any client, no matter what they are facing.

Our lifelong sisterhood of encouragement and inspiration is mind-blowing; a safe place to explore yourself, while learning the empowerment coaching process! The S.W.A.T. Institute is the cream of the crop!

Our Personal Empowerment Coach Certification is composed of three modules:

The learning objective of the first module is to introduce the students to Empowerment Coaching and the basic tools of this specific coaching method. In this module, students will be invited to master the basic framework of Empowerment Coaching which includes:

This module takes the students in detail through the most crucial emotional levels on the Map of Empowerment such as Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Grief, Fear and Anger, while offering specific coaching strategies and interventions for each of these levels.

Module One offers a vast opportunity for the students to listen to practical examples of real life coaching sessions, which is an invaluable component of the program. Also included are video lectures on each emotional level, one live weekly call where students can chat with Professor Izabela, and a private Facebook Group for fellow student empowerment coaches to share, connect, and support each other.

Nearing the end of this module, students will also be introduced to the concept of Emotional Age (EA), which is the basis of Crystal Andrus Morissettes upcoming book, The Emotional Edge (Random House Publishing, December 29, 2015).

The objective of the second module is to build on the foundations laid out in Module One so that the students can further hone and expand their coaching skills.

This module also incorporates some of the more general topics in coaching such as how to structure the coaching sessions or how to build rapport with a client.

The aim of Module Two is also to prepare the students for some unexpected or more challenging circumstances in coaching such as coaching a client with a different cultural background or a client that has just lost someone they loved.

At the end of this module, students are invited to participate in the 12-Week TeleCourse: The Emotional Edge taught by Crystal Andrus Morissette in order to integrate their learnings, personally. Completion of the 12-Week TeleCourse is not mandatory in graduating with your Personal Empowerment Coach Certification.

The objective of the last module is to have the students do their own coaching and practice all the skills and techniques they have learned throughout the course while coaching their own clients. The clients will be provided by The S.W.A.T. Institute through the Mentorship Program that enables women from any part of the world to get free coaching. This is a beautiful opportunity for our students to hone their coaching skills.

Section 1: What you need to do to start your Practice Coaching

The objective of this section is to cover the logistics side of the coaching practice so that the coaches in training have everything set up and ready before they start their practice coaching.

Section 2: The Critique session

As soon as students have completed approximately half of their practice sessions (10-15 practice session), they select three of their calls and submit them to their Professor of Coaching who will review them and schedule a critique session with them. The objective of the critique session is to give them feedback on how they have been doing thus far.

Section 3: Final Exam Assignment

The objective of the Final Exam is to put everything together for the students both the practical as well as the theoretical side of the training. In order to do that, they are required to:

A new generation of women has emerged and I feel honored to be part of it. Unique women who have come together under a common call: to thrust the world forward while birthing a brighter humanity.

I proudly belong to a tribe of visionaries. They may call us insane, rebels, inspirational, powerful masters, guides or coaches we call ourselves: Simply Woman Accredited Trainers!

Every Tuesday, Crystal Andrus Morissette answers your questions and offers you strategies to your own challenges during a live call! You can write in or chat with her directly on the phone or Skype. Plus, you have two other opportunities each week to chat live with Professor Izabela and our Student Advisors! No matter where you live in the world, you will feel like you are close by, connected to, and supported by our entire institute. We are women empowering women!

Our Mentorship Coaches have all graduated from their Empowerment Coach Training at The S.W.A.T. Institute and are beginning to build their own coaching practice. Before they can graduate they must complete 30 practice hours. Our coaches have spent countless hours learning the empowerment process and this is the perfect way for them to refine their skills while women around the world get the support and empowerment they need at no charge. Its a true giveback and a beautiful win-win! Plus, our Mentorship Coaching Program offers our students and graduates lifelong coaching at no charge. Thats right! You have a slew of brilliant coaches at your fingertips, whenever you need a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, or some kick-ass advice! Click here to learn more!

One of the most unique and special aspects of The S.W.A.T. Institute is our private forum where our students or as we call them siSTARs connect with, share, care, and support each other. No matter what is going on in their lives, each woman gets the loving advice, feedback, validation, and support she needs. We truly are a global coalition of empowered women!
