The curriculum in this course is designed for nurses and other professionals interested in establishing a group coaching practice that integrates energy concepts and experiential practices in their professional coaching practice. The course was developed around the core competencies of professional nurse coaching as defined by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation and the International Coaching Federation. The theoretical framework underpinning this course is based on Jean Gebser’s 5 structures of consciousness: archaic, intuitive/magical, mythical, mental, and integral.
While most group coaching is carried out through talking and conversation, Energy Tools for coaching is a whole-body experience. It works by connecting you and your fellow participants with your body, mind, heart, and spirit and increases your awareness of the essence of your being, which is pure energy.
