Core Competency and Mentor Coaching Weekend

Dates June 2 and 3, 2023

9 am – 4:30 pm

36 Stage Road, Enfield, NS


We are pleased to invite you to engage in a unique collaborative learning experience with a community of coaches who are ready to explore coaching presence in a new way.

This will be a weekend of curious, safe, experiential learning to creatively generate new coaching capacities. Our approach is rooted in our understanding of coaching competence as an evolving process of deepening our coaching presence.  To meet clients with our whole beings, we must be aware of our emotions, bodies and thoughts.

This is not about ‘performing’ competencies. It is about ‘being’ in the experience of openness and immediate feedback as we practice new approaches engaging in the parallel relationship of client and coach. In this experience of being with other sentient beings, deeper self-awareness and capacity will emerge.

Here are the details.  Please contact us if you need more information:
