Coaching Mastery Series: The Art & Science of Ontological Coaching - Bundle 2

Includes Series 1 & 3

A Phenomenal Way to Learn

Join us for three months: September - November

Each session is 90 minutes, starting at 11 am Eastern Time. Be sure to adjust if you are in another time zone.

Imagine sitting in a council of coaches, led by two senior coaches, exploring facets of mastery. In these sessions you’ll experience seasoned ontological coaches in action, witness live coaching, and ontological deconstruction of coaching. Sessions will combine real-time coaching demonstrations, discussion and breakdown of the coaching session as well as small group breakout exercises and conversation. Each three-week series is theme-specific.

This series is open to all practicing coaches.

The Coaching Mastery Series includes three 3-week courses:

  • Series 1: Intuition as a Source of Insight
  • Series 2: Bringing Your Whole Self to Coaching
  • Series 3: The Body as a Conduit

Enroll in bundled packages or for each individually.


  • Refine skillful applications of ontological distinctions
  • Increase your capacity to serve your clients
  • Deepen your coaching repertoire

*For ICF credentialed coaches, you can earn up to 4.5 CCE units per series and up to a total of 13.5 CCE units for all 3-series when you attend the live sessions. All CCE's are Coaching Core Competencies.

Series 1 – Coaching Mastery: Intuition as a Source of Insight

Join us for three Mondays: September 9th, 16th, and 23rd from 11:00 am-12:30pm ET.

Intuition helps us breakaway from stale protocol giving us more freedom, flow, and possibilities as a coach. When integrated with technical skills of coaching that synergy provokes a powerful potency for transformational coaching.

Intuition helps us utilize our inner knowing giving us more freedom and flow in our conversations. As a coach being able to hear, feel, and know those messages from our heart, our gut, and our imaginal realm, allows for the possibility of deeper awareness in our clients.

In this series, you will:

  • Discover more ways to connect to your own intuition
  • Practice applying your intuitive ‘muscle’ in your coaching
  • Become a more courageous coach, willing to access more of yourself with your clients
  • Recognize how intuition is woven throughout the ICF Core Competencies

This series will be facilitated by Newfield Mentor Coaches Carol Harris-Fike, PCC and Jane Kerschner, PCC.
