I have greatly enjoyed every minute of this course. I had not anticipated the many ways that the course would help me grow not only in a professional sense but in my personal life as well.   ~Tobias, Minnesota

Wisdom of the Whole Coaching is a very thoughtful program that feels like the gift of a life's work from Linda Bark. It has made a meaningful difference in my Midwifery practice supporting women to feel empowered and find their own path. ~Kiana, Hawaii

The real difference with Wisdom of the Whole is that you learn the framework for the coaching tools and why they work. Different ways of knowing, being and doing and how to help clients connect and find their way forward. It is a great program! ~Julie, Nurse, CO
