Coaching with Spirit provides coaches with a map of the human psyche

Are you already working in a relationship with others in a coaching capacity and seeking a model to work more deeply and intimately with your client’s inner world?


Coaching with Spirit: Level Two provides coaches with a map of the human psyche. In other words, it describes how the psyche works in fairly simple terms. And so we have a working model of what’s happening in our clients.

It’s a way of respectfully entering the client’s internal system and attuning to how that system wishes to change because the system wants to change. It wants to evolve. And if we’re able to enter it with deep respect, like we’re entering something sacred, we can collaborate with the client in activating the natural healing properties of their own system.


The client already has the wisdom to heal. We just help them leverage their own internal resources. So it’s a map and a method.

It also becomes a way of life. Because as you begin to understand how our psyches protect themselves and liberate themselves, it changes how we view ourselves and how we view others. We become more compassionate.


Guthrie Sayen developed the program and will be the Lead Trainer. Tune in to this short video to hear from Guthrie directly. 

Coaching with Spirit: Level Two is for people who have training in either coaching, therapy, spiritual direction, or anything else that allows them to have deep conversations with others.
So people who have developed their listing skills and also their skills around inquiry so that they know how to ask a question that invites people to go on an internal journey.
More about the Program:
CWS Level 2 is a deep dive into a powerful, non-pathologizing coaching model adapted from Richard Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems model called Parts Work.
This training is designed for coaches, psychotherapists, licensed counselors, and spiritual directors who want to incorporate this coaching model into their offering. The course offers 48 ICF-Approved CCE.
Even if your training was not through our Coaching With Spirit program, you may still qualify to enter our Coaching With Spirit Level 2 Training.
CWS Level 2 will transform you and your clients. It will help you heal old wounds and awaken to your full potential as both a human and a spiritual being. And that will empower you to participate in your clients’ healing and awakening.
The training synthesizes three big ideas: multiplicity, Self, and systems thinking.
Multiplicity: The human psyche is naturally multiple. We all have many parts or subpersonalities. When healed, these parts are wonderful resources that support intimacy, creativity, and wise action.
Self: This is the awake, aware center of every human, and it can be accessed more easily than most people imagine, by treating parts with respect and asking them to open space for Self.
Systems thinking: Our parts relate to each other in patterned ways. We need to understand that parts function in an ecosystem, that every part affects other parts.
Turning these ideas into a practical tool for working with clients requires deepening your understanding of the theory, seeing demonstrations of effective coaching, and supervised practice. That is what you will get in Coaching With Spirit Level 2.

A better world arises out of the Awakened Consciousness

Are you experiencing post-pandemic stress or trying to calm anxiety about an uncertain future?

It’s believed that Apollo’s temple at Delphi in ancient Greece was a place where people would go over 500 BCE seeking answers from the transcendent; answers to questions like,  What should I do with my life? or How can I find happiness?

While these are important questions, the two words of wisdom carved into the stone entrance are “Know thyself”.

Socrates taught, “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.”

According to spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle, unless you know yourself from a larger perspective, the conditioned mind will continue to create the same dramas over and over. Knowing yourself at the deepest level shifts identity from the form to the formless, from ‘me’ to something more profound and authentic.

Left unchecked, old mind structures will unconsciously recreate the same things and the same kinds of relationships.

Tolle states, “We don’t need to think about how to create a better world, a better world arises out of the awakened consciousness.”

Mindfulness and meditation practice removes barriers to source, inviting a direct relationship with the transcendent. 

Tolle suggests identifying what is relatively important vs what is absolutely important… a connection with the Source.

Inviting moments of spaciousness and stillness into thinking quiets the monkey mind that is always trying to figure things out. From here it’s possible to bring a deeper knowing that isn’t as likely to get stuck on the level of duality, separation, and thinking.

This is also important in relationships with others. Recognizing the other in yourself is the realization of oneness and unconditional love where compassion and empathy can be felt.
