If you are a current or aspiring life coach and you want to help your clients develop more peace of mind, mindfulness, manage their thoughts and emotions, and lead happier, healthier, more awakened lives, than this Mindfulness Certification is for you!
Studies have shown that people spend almost 50% of their daily life on autopilot, meaning that your clients are probably missing out on their life because they’re lost in thought, worry, or stress.
But the good news is that YOU can offer them one simple thing that will not only help extend their life but will help them actually experience more OF their life...
The solution is MINDFULNESS!
Mindfulness has helped transform our lives and the lives of our clients. Regardless of the niche of coaching that you focus on, mindfulness is an essential skill to add to your practice.
You see, about 50% of our daily habits are unconscious repetitive actions... Let's face it, it is hard to create change in our client when they are stuck on autopilot, living in the past or sabotaging themselves with negative self-talk and overwhelming thoughts and emotions.
In order for ANY client to effectively create lasting change and happiness, they need to learn how to take back control of their mind, emotions and decisions through mindfulness.
And, the ONLY time they can do this is when they are aware in the present moment and able to clearly observe their thoughts and emotions.
***There is a reason almost all extremely successful people and professional athletes use mindfulness and meditation techniques!***
Mindfulness and meditation are the key that unlocks self-awareness, focus, concentration, emotional self-control, clarity of thought, and the ability to make transformational change. No one can be effective if they're trapped in their monkey mind, which is constantly distracting them from their dreams and causing stress and anxiety.
The greatest gift you can give your clients is the gift of being more aware, awake, and alive in their daily life!
Not only does helping your clients develop mindfulness (including meditation) transform their lives, it's also a great tool to use as a coach, such as bring both you and your clients' full awareness into the present moment at the start of your coaching session.
<<<A Personal Note from Joeel>>>
We are passionate about teaching people to develop self-awareness and mindfulness because our ability to remain centered and focused is what has allowed us to thrive through even the most challenging parts of life. In fact, when I was sick and bed ridden for a year I used many of these mindfulness techniques to not only help my find peace but also find joy in the darkest places. In my many emergency room visits, the doctors wondered why I would be laughing and joking around with Natalie while my body was basically shutting down. The reason was that mindfulness helped me detach from the chaos and see the light at the end of tunnel, regardless of how dim it was because we were able to focus in the moment rather than being lost in worrying thoughts. Therefore, we know the power of mindfulness and this is why we are so excited to share these tools with you!

For most people, the chaos and noise happening around them and within their own minds feels like all there is. They live in a constant state of reactivity, being pushed and pulled by the thoughts and emotions they experience. They’re controlled by a voice in their head that worries about everything that can go wrong, criticizes them for everything they do wrong, and feels guilty or angry about everything that went wrong. THIS COURSE will help you take back control of that voice through mindfulness and present moment awareness!
According to neuropsychologist 90 seconds s the amount of time that we will hold an emotion if we don’t feed it. In this lecture and in this course we will give you the tools that you need to be able to have the power to not feed an undesired emotion and give it momentum.
Learn the difference between mindfulness and meditation, as well as the 7 common myths about meditation (in case you have any resistance to meditation).
In order to live your life mindfully and develop self-awareness, there are three core skills that you need to develop: Focused attention or concentration, Open monitoring or present moment awareness, and Acceptance or non-judgment. In this lecture we will take a look at what each of these means.
Another aspect that a coach must consider is which object should be used for attention. This is important because each client will have diverse needs and will have to explore which one fits those needs. In this lecture we will go over what that means and what that will look like in the coaching process.
Another aspect to consider with your client is whether to have a religious, spiritual, or secular mindfulness practice. This depends on your practice and the clients needs. In this lecture we will go over what that means and what that will look like in the coaching process.
Another aspect to consider as coach when working with clients is whether to approach the experience form a narrative or experiential perspective. In this lecture we will go over what that means and what that will look like in the coaching process.
One of the most important aspects that we can do as a coach is learning when to help our clients retrieve to safety or move to reintegrating some of the challenges this is also called moving to the sharp point. In this lecture we will go over how to help you client decide when they are ready to move to Reintegrating Difficult Situations or to move back to safety.
The present moment holds the key that unlocks your freedom from suffering.
You can only feel free, peaceful, content, safe, or happy NOW. This Now moment is, in fact, all that exists. The things we dream of and the ones we fear are nothing but a figment of the imagination. There is no “future” within which we will experience them. When we do experience the dream or the situation we fear, it will not be in the future, it will be NOW. Thinking of the future can have positive or negative consequences. Dreaming of a future experience of joy can make us feel better now, however worrying about anticipated pain or fear in the future makes us experience that suffering now.
Therefore, in this video we will go over how to experience present moment awareness so that you can live in the reality that you actually have which is the NOW.
There are times that you just need a quick way to get re-centered or you just want t a mindful practice that you can practice quickly. Therefore, unlike other mindful practices this one can be done easily and quickly especially for those people that have a busy life and an active mind.
As you discovered in the mindfulness meditation video, paying attention to your breathing can help increase focus and decrease stress. This square breathing technique is another method to focus the mind, this time using controlled, deliberate breathing. In this lecture we will show you how to do square breathing.
One of the key aspect of being mindful is being able to step away from the thinking mind and embracing the sensing mind. Many times people get caught up in thoughts and feelings which may create stress, anxiety, depression, or distraction. Many times we think that if we take action or consume our self with thinking about something that in some magic way things will be fixed. However, sometimes there is nothing that we can do about it and spending time obsessing over those things can be counter productive and cause unnecessary stress.
Therefore, that is why this lecture is essential as we will go over how to shift from the thinking mind to the sensing mind.
The next mindfulness exercise is called 5 senses and it is another simple exercise that you can do at any time to expand your mindfulness habits. You can do it in a couple of minutes or take longer depending how much time you have. In this lecture we will go over how to use your five senses to bring you to the hear and now of your present moment.
Mindful seen is a simple yet powerful activity especially for those that feel that they want the visual stimulus. Keep in mind that for some using their imagination may not come naturally when meditating. Therefore, this is a great activity for those that identify with that. This activity is one that be done in a few minutes. Also, the best part of the exercise is that it can be done anywhere that you have view.
Our bodies are amazing machines that are alive and in constant motion. At any moment, even when we are still, there are sensations that can be felt within the body that are a great focus for mindfulness. In this exercise we will start by bringing our awareness to our bodies as a way of becoming mindful.
Most of the time when we are eating we are only partially aware of it. Sometimes we are rushing or distracted and don’t even notice we are eating until we see that our plates are empty. This can be because we are talking, thinking, looking on our phones, or any number of reasons. In short, we are not mindful of what we are doing. And this is unfortunate because eating is a highly engaging, enjoyable experience but also it can impact digestion!
In this lecture we will go over and provide an activity so that you can incorporate mindful eating in your life.
You’ve already experienced the meditative effect of music any time you’ve gotten lost in a song.
This happens because music helps stimulate reward pathways in the brain that are linked to positive emotions. You can use the music to boost your mood among many other things. In this lecture we will go over how to use music meditations and what type of music has been found to have the largest impact in creating mindfulness.
Walking has been shown to be one of the most important thing we can do for our health, so establishing a routine of taking walks is a great idea. With the current trend of people using Fitbits or phone apps to count their steps, many people are already trying to get 10,000 steps a day. You might even be one of them! But this lecture isn’t about the physical benefits of walking, it’s about the opportunity that walking offers for practicing mindfulness. Therefore, in this lecture we will go over how to incorporate mindfulness into your walking as a formal or informal meditation.
Reality is that many of us spend a lot of time driving. Sometimes we even get to our destinations and do not even realize that we where driving because we where experience a mindless moment. However, our driving time can be a great opportunity to develop mindfulness skills. In this lecture we will go over how to incorporate mindfulness driving in your life.
Sometimes your thoughts are directly related to what is currently happening, whether it be the task you’re working on at your job, the turn you’re making in the car, or the food you’re cooking in the kitchen. But, most of the time your mind is thinking about something ELSE. It’s re-hashing the argument you had yesterday, remembering that time in college you embarrassed yourself, judging the neighbor for their ridiculous holiday decorations, or worrying about your upcoming interview.
In this lecture we will go over how to be able to observe it and release it without getting attached to it.
This mindfulness technique was originally created by professor Alan Marlatt for addiction treatment. The idea is that urges come and go much like waves. When we feel an urge, whether it’s to eat a food that is not on our diet, yell at someone who has upset us, or take an action we know will have an undesirable outcome, we have two choices: give into the urge or resist it. But, the problem with this is that just like a wave, it is there whether we like it or not. So, when we resist it—when we struggle we sink. We are taken over by the wave. This is why stopping a habit is so challenging. We don’t realize that resisting it is not any better than giving into the urge. In many cases, resisting the urge makes it WORSE.
In this lecture we will show you how to stay calm and ride the wave.
There are two layers of thoughts—the ones we can hear or experience as the voice in our head, that makes commentary about ourselves and everything around us, and the deeper level beliefs that determine our opinions, perspectives, and judgments. In this lecture we will go over them and how to become aware of them.
Sometimes people have a difficult time identifying their emotions and it’s usually because of one of the following reasons:
· We were made to think our feelings don’t matter
· We were made to fear expressing our emotions
· We were made to feel guilty if our emotions (or desires) were an inconvenience on others
· We were discouraged from feeling or expressing specific emotions
In this lecture we will help you overcome some of the things and give you the tools to become emotionally aware.
Becoming aware of our emotions is the first step. The next step is to develop the ability to manage them.
Anger is one of most challenging emotion and can be destructive to our well being, our relationships with others, and even our bodies. Anger builds in intensity the longer we hold onto it, so the key to managing anger is to defuse it before it builds and leads to negative consequences. Often, anger comes on rather quickly due to a trigger and the resulting impulsive response. By practicing mindfulness with your anger, you can learn to lengthen the space between the trigger and the response. In this lecture we will provide tools to be able to shift anger.
When the mind is having a hard time accepting something, emotionally we tend to feel frustration or anger and the body reacts by tensing up. Because of the connection between the physiological reaction in the body and the underlying thoughts and emotions, if we change the state our body is in we can impact the emotion. In this lecture we will provide a simple exercise to help you use your body to change your emotional state.
Now we will take a look at an uplifting mindfulness exercise called the Half Smile Technique. The mind doesn’t know the difference between what we’re thinking and what is happening in real life, and so it responds by creating an emotional response to our thoughts and what are body is telling it. Therefore, we will go over how to use your body to change your emotional state.
Gratitude has been shown through research to be a powerful tool to decrees negative emotions such as anxiety and stress among others. We can not be in a state of gratitude and be angry, anxious, or depressed. Therefore, taking the time to focus our attention to what we are grateful for in our life we can shift our state. In this lecture we will go over how to how this powerful tool of gratitude.
Many people have a negative association with the word surrender because they think it means that they are giving up, giving in, or waving a white flag. Surrender does not mean to give up, it means to accept what IS. Surrendering is an essential tool in mindfulness. In this lecture we will go over what surrender is and how to be able to get to a place of acceptance in your life.
In this mindfulness mediation you will pick something that in your life that you feel resistance about. This may be something that you wish you could change but you cannot. Something you are having a hard time accepting. Or even something from your past that is negatively impacting your life. Then we will walk you to a mediation to release it.
Self-realization first begins by realizing what we are not our thoughts. Self-awareness is what gives us the ability to consciously respond to our environment, deliberately create our thoughts and emotions, and relate to and understand other people. In this lecture we will explore Who am I through a self-inquiry meditation.
Many people find it easy to have compassion for others. They recognize others struggles, honor their needs, understand their concerns, and wish them well. But when it comes to how they view and treat themselves when they are experiencing similar life challenges, they do not extend that same kindness. It is common for people to judge themselves harshly, put undue pressure on themselves, and negate their own needs. In this lecture you will learn how to practice self-compassion so that you can improve your well-being, confidence, and resilience.
Like the mountain, your life will present an ever-changing experience at the surface and you will experience varying degrees of darkness, light, activity, and stillness. This lecture and mindfulness meditation will help you remember that at your core the truth of who you are remains strong and patient, allowing everything that passes to be as it is as you enjoy the variety and colors of life with composure and compassionate clarity.
We are social creatures by nature, which makes us heavily influenced by others. We have a natural drive to belong, meaning we will conform to those we deem important. We also are social learners, so we will pick up the habits and behaviors of others. In this lecture we will go over how to choose inputs based on the life or experience that you are trying to create.
When you say, “how’s it going?” to coworkers, store clerks, or even family, do you ever really stop to listen to the answer?
Be honest with yourself and consider, how often do you give another person your undivided attention?
It’s important to practice being present with other people. When you’re not present with them—when you are with them in the same room or even right next to them but your mind is elsewhere, you both miss out on the opportunity to truly connect, and you make the other person feel like they aren’t valued.
All everyone wants is to be seen and heard.
In this lecture we will go over how to be present with others.
Love and kindness are ways of expressing one’s mindfulness to others. They are also wonderful states to experience during mindfulness meditation. One way to practice mindfulness with others is to offer acts of kindness. However, you can also give yourself and others the gift of loving-kindness through meditation itself, by feeling the emotions and sending the loving energy to others. In this lecture we will first look at acts of kindness and how to practice active mindfulness. Then you will find a loving-kindness meditations in the next lecture.
Loving kindness is a natural opening of a compassionate heart to ourselves and to others. In this exercises you will begin with developing loving kindness toward ourselves and allowing our hearts to open with tenderness. We will then spread that love and kindness to others.
One of the most of the most important things that you can for your clients moving forward is to help them create a formal mindful mediation practice. In this video we will go over how to create that formal mindfulness meditation practice so that it can become part of their unconscious daily actions.
