Who is it for?
  • Those looking to develop both intuitive and structured coaching skills to support individuals, groups and organizations.
  • People as curious about their own self-inquiry as they are about the inquiry of others.
  • Individuals longing for a clearer sense of life purpose both personally and professionally.

How is it structured?

  • This training will be composed of 3 distinct modules, each one teaching foundational aspects of the theory and practice of IGC. We will meet online via Zoom twice weekly for 3 ½ weeks, each meeting lasting 2.5 hrs.
  • In between modules, students who wish to certify will apply skills taught with their peers in small group settings. Students will alternate coaching, and being coached by each other, receiving peer feedback.

What is a virtual/online course?

Connecting on an interactive online platform like Zoom is a great way to engage live and to pre-recorded teachings and connect with each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer or other mobile device and internet connectivity. We use Zoom video conferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where we can dialogue, and engage in experiential exercises with fellow group members in pairs, triads or small groups as well as with the entire group.

There is no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device. You will need to download the Zoom app onto your device (free app). Zoom is very easy to learn, and you will find many YouTube videos and support via the zoom website as well.

Can I participate and benefit from the course if I miss a few live classes?

Yes! You can download the audio recordings of the missed course sessions, so you don’t have to worry about missing live sessions. However, in order to obtain certification as an Integrative Gestalt Coach, you will have to be present for at least 75% of the live teaching events of this training. After listening to the recordings of missed meetings you will need to do the missed exercises with a member(s) of the group.

Are there scholarships available for this training?

Yes, we are offering a few spaces with partial scholarships (25% off) giving preference to Black, Indigenous & People of Color.

The amount of discounted spaces will depend on the total number of applications for the training. If you would like to apply for a scholarship please email us and let us know about your situation.
