Begins January 2023 (early registration starts in Dec. 2022)
Have you ever witnessed coaching magic in your sessions?
When a transformation so profound occurs right before your eyes?
When your client realizes something in a single flash of insight that transforms their perspective — and life — forever?
You might believe that this kind of transformation is rare, only facilitated CONSISTENTLY by the world’s best — and most naturally gifted coaches.
But it’s not.
Every single day I bear witness to life-changing transformations — and you can too when you master the skills and principles taught in The Deep Coaching Mastery Program.
If you have been sensing that you’d like to go deeper with your clients, but don’t know how and are ready for your next level of proficiency as a coach …
This program is designed specifically for you. Think of it as grad school for coaches.
The modalities in the program are centered around working with the conscious AND unconscious minds at the same time.
They are a direct line to the boundless wisdom of the client’s other-than-conscious intelligence.
This is the single most powerful asset that any person can have; and learning as coaches, exactly step-by-step, how to help your clients access their own ‘inner magic’ is of inestimable value!
What would it be like if you could:
See your clients more clearly and profoundly?
Sense their experience with your mind and body?
Hold a powerful space where they can positively touch difficult truths?
Guide them to and through their inner world to help them:
> learn and understand themselves
> welcome and integrate different parts of their identity
> create positive patterns and outcomes in their lives more easily and powerfully
> know how to engage with triggers and traumas long after you are finished your work together
> develop their own practices to elevate their state and tap into what is commonly referred to as flow
Through an embodied limbic connection, your guidance will help them learn, at multiple levels, how to navigate and create themselves and their reality.
Some have called this “Grad School for Coaches”. Others, “How To Be Like Ayahuasca”.
Whichever metaphor works for you, the power of this work is that it happens deep, deep underneath the surface levels of what the client is aware of – the place where their truths are fluid, intense, raw, and they have access to many new possibilities and wisdom.
The place where intuition comes from. The “I don’t know where that amazing insight came from but it’s the wisest thing I’ve thought” place.
You are helping your client access the ultimate superpower: the power of their OWN inner wisdom. And you are doing it without struggle, without creating dependency, without pharmaceuticals or plant medicines, without complicated and costly interventions. You’re simply guiding the client back home — to their own wise, creative, brilliant self.
My Story And The Basis Of This Work
I started off as an atheist science nerd. If I couldn’t see it, measure it, replicate it, it wasn’t real.
I’ve ended up a proponent of generative fields of consciousness that give us coaches a boundless playground to connect with and draw the magic and mystery out from our clients’ world.
I’d say I’m agnostic now 😉
Living in a Research Community
My journey started with an interest in psychology and therapy but quickly landed me living in a warehouse with 50 people, no walls or privacy, researching what people do when they intentionally decide to experiment with social norms and conditioning and finding out through experimenting, what they really like and how they really are.
In this setting, my body and nervous system were experiencing A LOT more intensity than I believed possible and the magic of limbic resonance (the way we regulate our bodies to feel what others around us are feeling) became a fundamental truth of mammalian life that I was now an expert in.
I also became an expert on people. The 5 years spent there taught me so much about who people are in so many situations: from the moments people spent watching TV to how they coped and handled stress, secrets, fears, sex, desires, betrayal, and the rest. It was all on display, processed, and experimented with. It was living in a science experiment.
After standard coaching training with the Coaches Training Institute, I kept looking for more. It was not touching the depths of work that I knew was possible.
Everything changed for me in 2010 when my partner introduced me to the work of Stephen Gilligan, one of Milton Erickson’s closest students. His next-generation Generative Trance work was exactly what I was looking for. I already knew about limbic resonance from my training in relationships and sexuality. This was limbic resonance on steroids. And applied to healing and personal development.
Amazingly, once I started using these deeper states of consciousness in my coaching, besides being a way better coach, I started making more money. Without trying. The power of the work spoke for itself and clients enthusiastically wanted more.
I began inserting these modalities into all of my offerings. I ran Eye-Gazing parties. I had a research team with students of mine exploring the possibilities of using trance states with other practices to learn what else the human mind and body can do. And, I began teaching Trance training workshops with my partner.
At this point, my curiosity and explorations had taken me in the direction of spirituality. It was no longer possible to deny that there is a core, ineffable experience that all spiritual traditions ultimately point at. Like spokes on a wheel, no matter which you follow, you ultimately end up at the same center.
I traveled to Peru to experience the work of shamans and plant medicines. I’ve humbly been a student of this path for over a decade.
I was fortunate to be invited to experience the rites of the Native American Church.
In one of the most powerful experiences of my life – I sat in the open, alone, on a mountain for 4 days with no food or water in the Lakota tradition on a Vision Quest with a Taino tribe that invited me in. Everything fell away from my constructed ego identity on the mountain. It is the only true rite of passage I have ever experienced. And it led to the same center of the wheel.
All of this experiential living culminated in a moment a few years ago when, while in a deep state of consciousness, something bubbled up from within. A distillation of all of the wisdom I’ve accrued. It is the fundamental, underlying paradigm that all of my work rests on.
The Deep Coaching Mastery Training teaches the embodiment of these principles.
And how to guide others there.
The Genesis of the Program
I’ve worked with coaches, supporting them in developing their businesses and themselves for 8 years now. Their calls and desire for deeper training in their own work have been consistent, especially after they experience a deep trance session with me.
In 2016 I started taking Apprentices and including supervision as part of that program. It quickly became obvious that having my eyes on coachees’ sessions as they applied the skills and principles which I was teaching them was extremely valuable. Not only could I answer their questions, but I could see what they didn’t even know to ask about. They started making more money without trying.
As my clients began asking more and more for training on how to work in these deeper states, I began offering a weekly deep trance process specifically designed for coaches at “Soul Space”. You can find it in the Coaches Light the Grid FB group. There’s nothing like it that I’m aware of. The seed was planted and the Deep Training program is now here!
The Deep Coaching Mastery Program stems from a unique blend of modalities:
> Generative Trance/Hypnosis
> Self-Relations/Parts work, similar to the now popular Internal Family Systems
> Medicine work
> Embodied relationship skills
> Somatic coaching applications
You will learn the underlying principles of how the unconscious mind works, how to drop into deep states yourself while guiding your client there, and then, how to use the most resonant intuitive language and expression for you and the client AT THAT MOMENT to create the most powerful effect.
The tools and processes you will learn will be the basic scales from which you will be coaching like a musician plays jazz.
You will learn to go way beyond the “outer shell” of language patterns, to the inner “nut” of the human presence and connection at a field level.
You will be skilled at noticing, connecting to, and helping your client integrate parts. As the practitioner, you are uncovering your client’s inner reality with them, staying open and curious, and supporting them in finding THEIR meaning and understanding of what is needed for integration.
In this program, you will learn to develop deep states of awareness (often associated with plant medicine though no substances are used). These states are available to you and your clients as a natural human ability even though they are not normally developed or taught in our present-day cultures/societies. How wonderful it is to be able to support clients who won’t be sitting in medicine circles.

Ideal candidates for the Program
The Deep Coaching Mastery Program is designed for coaches who already have coach training, are fluent in the basics of coaching, and are looking to take their coaching further towards mastery.
These coaches are looking to be able to get underneath the thinking mind to the roots of clients’ experiences and patterns and are not afraid of what they may find there.
Coaches enrolled in this program are interested in altered states and the possibilities of coaching in them without using any additional substances.
They are eager to practice and deepen their own access to their unconscious minds and their deepest selves.
Who it’s not for:
This program is very experiential and not indicated for those who want to dabble without immersion. Practice is essential to developing the ease and access to these deeper states.
It is a poor match for coaches who are cynical about the importance of a mind-body connection or the deeper wisdom of the unconscious mind.
It is also not encouraged for anyone who is not interested in doing their own inner work. Through practice, your own stuff will come up, be touched, and worked with/healed. It is sometimes uncomfortable.
Testimonials for Deep Coaching Training and Trance Experiences

Rumi says it best:
The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
May the ever-present light within you touch the ever-changing spirit of your clients.
