Vision Coach Training & Certification
Become Confident and Certified as a Natural Vision Coach -- watch for next training session starting September, 2022
>>> Scroll Down for Videos about the Vision Coach Training Program
The Vision Coach Training Program tends to attract a rich mix of people with strong beliefs in natural healing. The classes are typically a mix of practitioners (we've even had four MD's!), people eager to become Natural Vision Coaches or add Vision Coaching to their mix, and others who just want to improve their own eyesight and help family members.
The "buddy coaching" we do with fellow students is much more than just an exercise. For most participants the buddy coaching brings a great opportunity to take a fresh look at their lives, and more clarity about what they want to do (and "see") next. Of course, the clarity of purpose is a great metphor for clarity of vision! After the buddy coaching you will be surprised at how confident and successful you will feel with your "practice clients".
Greg Marsh is an engaging presenter who takes care to maintain a safe setting where people can have a rich mix of ideas and learn from each other. Each each group has a unique mix of expertise and knowledge, and to learn, we'll go a bit off the trail together sometimes. But we'll keep coming back to the rich understanding we seek of the Bates Method and complimentary tools. Greg's teaching style is fun and unhurried, yet we'll cover a lot and end classes on schedule.
The core of what we will learn and explore together is the Bates Method of improving eyesight through relaxation, movement, and awareness. The Vision Coach Training will include three other tools that Greg finds incredibly helpful: EFT "tapping", guided visualization, and a simple-but-powerful coaching approach.
Some people are doubtful about EFT at first. "It didn't work for me." You certainly don't have to include EFT in your personal "toolbox", but most participants will find a surprising success with it and likely become fond of it. Guided visualization is likewise more simple and powerful than you might expect. Finally, we use a powerful uncomplicated coaching approach to help us tune in to what clients really want and need.
Yes, we will meet on zoom. Although we have in the past had our first few days of each training in person, we have adapted to the new reality of Zoom. Greg has been using platforms like Webex and Zoom for several years, and is amazed at how well a thoughtful group of humans can "connect" on video. Also, we will make good use of "breakout rooms" in smaller groups, so everyone gets to speak and share more.
If you have questions please feel free to call at 970-391-7957, or we can set up a zoom meeting. I promise it is not my mission to sell you on taking the Training, but rather to help you find out if it feels like a "fit". -- Greg Marsh
