Poetry for Coaches

Poetry for Coaching Presence

The winter months offer us a time to slow down, turn inward and reflect. A time for coaches – so used to giving of themselves to others – to give themselves the heart space necessary to maintain and strengthen coaching presence.

Poetry for Coaching Presence, designed specifically for coaches, aims to enrich coaching presence through the impact of spoken poetry. During this particular ‘soul walk’, you’ll choose a poem that invites you to dance with your personal edge around coaching presence. Over the course of six months, we’ll engage in reflections, exercises and exchanges designed to cultivate the blossoming of transparent, authentic presence. Optional homework will be available to deepen and integrate your learning.

The series consists of 5 monthly sessions from 7:00 to 9:15 p.m; and a final integrative retreat. The dates and times are:

  • Monday, January 9, 2017, 7:00 to 9:15 pm EST
  • Monday, February 6, 7:00 to 9:15 pm
  • Monday, March 7, 7:00 to 9:15 pm
  • Monday, April 3, 7:00 to 9:15 pm
  • Monday, May 8, 7:00 to 9:15 pm
  • Saturday, June 3, 9:30 to 3:30 (final retreat)

All evening sessions will be held at the home of my generous hosts, Kate McGregor and Batia Winer, 42 Wallford Way, Nepean, Ontario. The venue for the final retreat will be announced later.

Cost for the series is $275 plus HST; $250 plus HST if you have previously taken Poetry as Portal. Limited to 10 coaches. The series is offered as a package; however, post-dated cheques and monthly e-transfers are welcome.

Please note: The total actual training time for the series amounts to more than the required 15 hours for re-certification with Integral Coaching Canada.

Nothing compares to the sensation of being alive in the company of another. It is God breathing on the embers of our soul.
