1. About This Class

What is your personal definition of wellness? What will it take for you to live in wellness? How will you know when you are there?

So begins the “Living and Coaching the Good Life: It’s All About You” Master Class. This class has been developed specifically for coaches to learn and live the principles of wellness by creating and using a personalized wellness plan. You will be exploring and deepening your understanding of your own needs, values and goals through use of exercises in awareness, visioning and goal-setting.

Together we will embrace the psychology of possibility as we delve into the necessity of fun, connectedness, meaning, and contribution. This class explores the integrative holistic models of wellness coaching, definitions and wellness principles designed for lasting lifestyle change.

Have you ever wondered what mindfulness truly is? One of the goals of mindfulness is getting to know ourselves at a deeper level. In terms of wellness coaching, the goal is to learn to integrate what the medical world knows to be generally true with what we know or can learn about ourselves.

Research shows that self-compassionate and mindful approaches help to increase motivation, enhance coping and emotional wellbeing, reduce anxiety and depression, promote health behaviors, and maintain healthy habits. In this class, you will learn how to use visioning, self- compassion and mindfulness skills to reduce emotional reactivity and increase your circle of compassionate and mindful support.

This class will be down-to-earth and practical. Assessments will be used to track individual progress. There will be weekly homework with partners as well as a live interactive listserv for class interaction.

We will examine cutting edge research by reflecting on the works of top neuroscientists, physicians and psychologists such as James Prochaska, Ellen Langer, Kristin Neff, Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Andrew Weil.
