Guided Meditation Training for Coaches

As a coach, becoming a trained guided meditation facilitator is vital to your success.  Integrating targeted, outcome-oriented guided meditations in a session can help your clients engage more meaningfully in the coaching process, add novelty to your work & help you get lasting results that will set you apart from the vast amount of competition in the industry.

Problematic societal trends in attention span, problem-solving ability & resilience to everyday challenges are rendering traditional methods of coaching & motivational interviewing less effective by the day.  However, a technique of guided meditation created by a coach – with over 40,000 hours in 1-on-1 practice – for coaches is the perfect tool for those seeking to drastically increase their effectiveness & grow their business beyond 1-on-1 into retreats & workshops.

How Can Guided Meditation Training Benefit Coaches?

Practical guided meditation teacher training enables coaches to increase their clients’ receptiveness to coaching processes & overcome the physiological & psychological roadblocks to change.  This professional multi-tool not only places 1-on-1 coaches in a league of their own but also is profoundly effective when integrated into group coaching & events.

Set Yourself Apart from Cookie-Cutter Coaches

As more coaches flood the market from coaching institutions, it’s becoming harder for coaches to differentiate themselves and not feel imposter syndrome using recycled downloadables & procedures.  Additionally, the internet & online gurus have removed all novelty from typical questions of motivational interviewing, as most clients have had ample exposure to these commonplace practices. The Guided Meditation Framework™ offers a unique approach, proven to produce consistent results over many years of professional application, that your clients won’t find from anyone else.

Guided meditation for coaches who want to lead retreats & workshops

Become a Standout Leader of Workshops & Retreats

The majority of thought leaders & coaches draw from the same pool of online courses and institutionalized templates & ask the same questions that produce mediocre results for group event participants.  Guided meditation can be infused into any workshop or retreat to facilitate deeply personal, individualized outcomes, even in a group setting. The Guided Meditation Framework™ shows coaches how to lead memorable group experiences by weaving in immersive meditation experiences and provides proven models of workshops & retreats enabling coaches to immediately implement their training with confidence.

What Does It Mean to Become a Meditation Coach?

As a growing number of coaches are seeking training on how to become a meditation coach, it’s important to define what this term means and why we don’t use it.

How to become a meditation coach and what does that mean

Confusion Around the Term: Meditation Coach

While online meditation coach certifications are starting to pop up, coaches need to understand whether these trainings will help them in their business or not.  Those seeking training on how to become a meditation coach need to ask themselves: Do I want to coach others on how to meditate? Or do I want to integrate meditation into my coaching practice?  Most online meditation coach programs focus on mindfulness and do NOT teach you how to use guided meditation as a tool. Instead, they show you how to teach others how to meditate. While teaching people to meditate is the goal for some, these sorts of programs are typically not tailored to coaches looking to get results with their clients.

Certainty of the Term: Guided Meditation Facilitator

We see guided meditation as a tool to be integrated into coaching, not something to center your career around.  In the same way that motivational interviewing is a tool used to help clients get clear on & achieve their goals, guided meditation is a tool that increases cognitive function, shifts perspective, ignites the creativity & unlocks rapid-fire decision-making capabilities that accelerate clients toward their desired outcome.  We refrain from using the term meditation coach, and instead, use the term guided meditation facilitator, because our graduates don’t learn to teach meditation. Instead, they learn how to facilitate insight provoking moments of self-reflection & inner listening that can only be produced in a meditative state.
