"As a clergy woman in The United Methodist Church, I am incorporating what I learned into teaching, conversations, sermons and counseling. (I'm even asking people to breath deeply before we begin a meeting or service, etc). What excites me is being able to use the Wellness Inventory to promote a culture of wellness in the local church....whole-person wellness...mind, body, and spirit. We are called to be good stewards...of our earth and its’ resources and our selves. I hope to continue to raise awareness in our church district and conference wide. This stuff is awesome.”

"I found the training to be an exceptional experience both academically and personally.

This class not only assists the coach in the coaching process but also helps the participant in their own personal wellness journey."

Carole, South Carolina

"This Wellness Coaching certification course has rearranged my inner framework for understanding and integrating knowledge related to the meaning of real health and well-being. As an international educator, transformational life coach and yoga teacher for children, I was given great tools for creating my own wellness programs to suit my clients' needs, for facilitating personal and professional empowerment using an inside-out approach, and for enhancing my own awareness of growth in all areas of life. I highly recommend this training to everyone interested in going further with wellness coaching or simply wishing to enhance their whole life experience with this powerful knowledge."

Hazel Martinez, RN

"Did you happen to see the movie 'As Good as it Gets' with Jack Nicholson? I remember a quote from the film when Nicholson's character says to the woman he'd fallen in love with 'You make me want to be a better man'. Something similar rings in my ears this evening, in the sense that both of you have spirits that inspire me to grow into something bigger, some larger aspect of myself. Thank you both for that! This is a deeply important class and I am really thankful."

Lori Boothroyd, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist
Traverse City, MI

"While I expected to learn about wellness from a professional standpoint, I was blown away by the personal gains I made in my understanding and appreciation for how the 12 dimensions of wellness play out in my own life. The learning that I did in this class strongly supported my ability to make a number of significant changes in how I address my sense of wellness. I know that the enthusiasm that I feel about my new found sense of wellness will be easily communicated to future coaching clients."

Keith Greer
Family Therapist, Life Coach
Penfield, NY

"If you want to move forward in being the person you dream about being and to which you believe God is calling you, and if you want to improve in knowledge and skills for helping others to be more of what they dream about being and to which God is calling them, then get involved in the Wellness Inventory training for helpful knowledge and new skills for that purpose."
