Spiritual Life Coach Certification: Level II
Level II consists of three classes.
- Coaching The Divine Intelligence Process (4 days in person)
This class is our marquee offering. As part of the Divine Intelligence Institute's path to Spiritual Life Coaching Certification, this course focuses on learning how to coach using our proprietary process. Our process develops the client's spiritual self through nine dialogues. These nine dialogues help the client with self-reflection and self-discovery, unplugging them from their external authority sources and develop their own internal guidance system, finding what we call the "Authentic Self." The process focuses on defining the client’s interior life and then teaching the client how to live life in their newly awakened self. As a certified ICF training institute, the priority is teaching excellence and integrating the ICF Core Competencies in our genre of spiritual coaching. Our training takes place over a 4-day period in person at our headquarters in Allen, TX.
- Neuroscience (1 day in person)
Knowing the basics of how the brain changes is important to the credibility this process brings to the client. Coaches will be introduced to 12 neuroscience laws and how they apply to coaching. Our neuroscience workshop is designed to teach our students how brain chemistry can impact and improve the field of spiritual life coaching. The integration of science and spirituality is demonstrated in this class in order for coaching skills to improve and provide sustainable change for clients.
