The Life Coaching Certification Course allows students to learn and develop self-awareness through the study of neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness, meditation, and yoga and then transfer that knowledge into practical tools to help guide others through a personal development journey. Students are introduced to basic principles of neuroscience and will form an understanding of how the brain works. Students will also learn about self, stress, self care, self actualization, and positive psychology. Throughout the course students learn and practice the power of the mind, positive thinking, confidence, goal setting, and mindful communication.
The curriculum is delivered through a combination of lectures, discussions, group work, experiential learning, practicums, readings, and independent study. The program allows students to sample many awareness-based techniques and modalities including yoga and meditation in conjunction with acquiring a basic understanding of Western psychology, neuroscience, and neuropsychoidiology. This course has also been designed to encourage, foster, and facilitate a unique path of self exploration that enables students to learn important skills in order to create more meaningful, rewarding, and happy lives, whether that is done professionally with others or for personal benefit.
