A coaching blog for the Spirit
In the 21st century, we need a new coaching theory, a new focus for working with people that honors the breadth and depth of consciousness, and the mystery of the working of the indwelling Spirit. Strictly working with clients from a worldly goal-oriented process is no longer appropriate, respectful, or helpful to empower our clients to experience the fullness of who and what they are. As we evolve as a species, it is not enough to be materially fulfilled. The literal survival of the planet and our communities relies on our ability to take a higher perspective than a “what’s in it for me?” attitude to find balanced solutions for the whole, and the individuals we work with.
A sick soul devoid of awareness of its connection to its own spirit, its own nature, manifests in a myriad of ways. We miss cues that cause us to stay in unhealthy relationships, invest our resources in ways that do not support our health and wealth. We misunderstand what dilemmas are for, and don’t allow ourselves to be with the uncomfortable experiences they give us the opportunity to grow through. It is time we offer coaching clients more than a simple goal-oriented process to create solutions that allow the fullness of a person’s humanity to be explored, experienced, and enacted in service to their Self actualization. Coaching a person’s Spirit requires a coach really understand spiritual integration as a fully human process that affects everyone.

This is advanced deep self-inquiry program is for professional coaches who are interested in doing deep inner personal work and who are interested in leading their clients in the same deep personal transformative process.
Transformation. Its big business, these days. It’s in our universities and corporations, it’s in our self-help books and our HR Conferences. It’s everywhere.To transform, one has to cultivate awareness of what they choose to do and think, so they can choose differently – only in service to what they say they want. But what is it in its fullness, and how do you know when it’s happened to you?.
Domains of Awareness
Through realizing how we “be” and who we be, in all domains of awareness, we cultivate an awakening and responsiveness to the multidimensional nature of our being. It gives us not just a bird’s eye view but perhaps an angel’s eye view of the reality within which we are immersed. It allows us to see that our choice-making process includes so much more than meets our everyday seeing eyes.
The Four Questions
Coaching is based on a principle of empowering people to empower themselves through the process of Inquiry – asking questions the engage the client in personal self-discovery and self-actualization. In this session we will reveal four very basic questions that will empower you to empower your client into clarify the trajectory of their lives, the obstacles that stop them, and the practice of shifting attitudes and context in service to having what they truly desire in their lives.
When a client requests coaching for a particular outcome, a transformational coach carefully listens for the context within which the client is being. The coach then empowers that client to see what is possible and impossible based on their context. From here the client can practice taking the steps required to shift ways of interpreting, being, and taking acting to support the intended outcome.
A choice-point is the foundation from which all of us consciously choose to choose to choose, only in service to our highest truth and highest good. Or, as happens more often than not, we choose to not choose, remaining on the fence. Or, we choosing to choose what already is, in service to maintaining the status quo. This model will focus on choices relating to circumstances and personal power.
Choice Points Continued
In this model we continue to reveal the challenges clients face when attempting to transform their lives. This model will focus on the choices relating to our humanness and spirituality. When we empower our clients to uncover how they choose to choose what they choose, they are liberated from limiting beliefs and interpretations. They are free to choose in service to their highest good and their highest good.
Walking the Talk as a Transformational and Transpersonal Coach
Too often, those of us striving to be Agents of Transformation are just as challenged to truly walk our talk. We believe that it is easier to help others change, however if we haven’t personally adventured into and through a transformative process, we do not know the territory. Only through direct experience can any one of us steward others along the path of transformation. Transformation can be a challenge that requires courage and strength. Faint of heart need not apply!
Getting Out of Your Own Way
The most challenging part of this journey of being a Transpersonal and Transformation Coach is getting out of your own way so people who are meant to be your clients can find you. Developing a Practice of Being a TTC means walking your talk and surrendering limiting beliefs. As you do so you will notice people seeking you out to help them on their transformative journey.
In Peer Coaching you will be coaching and getting coached by a fellow ITTC Student. 12 hours are required to receive your certificate. 6 hours as the coach and 6 hours as the client. It is recommended that you wait until after the completion of the Choice Points module before you begin coaching as a peer coach.

What are Spiritual
Emergence, Emergency & Awakening Experiences?
This module will introduce coaches to the myriad of categories and types of spiritual experiences that have been reported by experiencers. We will also be discussing the potential conflicts that these types of experiences may present for the experiencer.
From Experience to Integration
This module will introduce the coach to potential integration concerns. You will learn how to use the coaching conversation to empower the client to examine the experience from the perspective of integration and learn what to listen for to distinguish 6 potential points of integration.
Spiritual Coaching Principles & Skills
In this model you will learn the difference between coaching, counseling, and consulting. You learn and practice spiritual coaching skills and learn how to apply them with experiencers. You will also learn how to incorporate the ICF competencies in spiritual coaching.
Ethics and Risk Management
How does religious dogma help or hinder integration? When should you refer a coaching client to a licensed mental health professional? How do you know there are no other contributing factors to the experience that may need medical or mental health assistance? These issues and other spiritual and coaching ethics will be discussed in this model.
The SpiritPath Coaching Model
In 2007 Elizabeth Sabet created the SpiritPath coaching model, a comprehensive and transformational transpersonal coaching model to meet the needs of the whole person and to give space for the inner Self, or transpersonal aspect of oneself to speak, be heard, and integrated into a client’s life. You will be taught the theory and core constructs and how to apply them with spiritual experiencers.
You will be coached 10 hours, 7 in group, 3 in a private setting, on coaching skills rather than on practice building, or other topics unrelated to the development of your coaching skill. Mentoring is intended to serve as a development process that takes place in a repetitive cycle of receiving feedback regarding your coaching, reflecting on this feedback and practicing new skills. The focus is on the development of skills using the ICF Core Competencies.
In the Observed Coaching sessions you will be required to coach a client, fellow student, or another person as a method for practicing your coaching skills. These sessions are observed by an instructor who will be providing written feedback to you, noting your use of the ICF Core Competencies in the coaching session. These ten 30 minute sessions are observed live.
Peer Coaching and Supervised Coaching
You will be required to document 10 hours of peer coaching, 5 as the coach, and 5 as the client. There is also a requirement to hire a professional coaching supervisor after you have been in the program for at least 1 month. Documentation of at least 2 professional supervision sessions must be turned in as a graduation requirement.
Personal Education Coach
As soon as your application has been approved and you are registered, you will be assigned a Personal Education Coach (PEC). The PEC is there to be your thinking and accountability partner regarding your education journey. One session is included in your tuition, if you should want more sessions with your PEC, the coach’s standard charges will apply.
