People often ask me “what is a meditation coach?”
It is the way it sounds! It’s the combination of meditation and coaching. In this 16-minute youtube video, I share more in-depth about meditation coaching and how I accidentally got started offering this when I was living in Los Angeles.
As a meditation coach, you teach people how to meditate. You learn about the people you’re working with and design a specific meditation program that suits who they are and their lifestyle needs.
As a Meditation coach, you do more than teach meditation, you guide others in realizing their true self. This includes their true desires and intentions. In the coaching process, you empower your clients to realize their deepest intentions, as well as achieve their personal and professional goals.
Meditation coaching includes the integration of meditation, coaching, and energy healing to serve others in their process of revelation and goal setting. With this multidisciplinary approach, you facilitate higher awareness, insight, and calm with your clients. They learn lifelong skills that help them develop resilience and true strength.
In a typical meditation coaching session, you would begin with a few minutes of mindfulness. This allows you and the client to show up o the same page. Breath and body awareness allows you both to become fully present, more relaxed, and harmonized with one another.
In a more relaxed and heightened state, coaching becomes a natural flow. It’s less heady and more connected. By beginning with meditation, your client is more embodied and connected to their truth and authentic self.
In the session, you’re actively listening and asking questions. You can also combine meditation with coaching by asking coaching questions through a guided meditation session. We teach this skill in our LIBERATE training.
When your client is centered and present, they have access to more resources within them. Asking powerful coaching questions during a meditation session can evoke instant insight and realizations for your client. It is also deeply healing and calming.
Meditation coaching is a spiritual practice. You’re focusing on more than just the results, you’re also practicing presence and receiving the benefit of simply paying attention without attachment. Your client receives this and feels the benefit of listening and receptivity.
Just as you would observe your own breath during meditation, you observe your own breath and bodily sensations during meditation coaching. This informs you throughout your time with your client and can help guide the coaching process.
