The purpose of a Coaching POD is to support ongoing growth and work on well-being skills.
Being in a POD will INSPIRE, ENLIGHTEN and offer some ACCOUNTABILITY from session to session.
This structure gives you the opportunity to try out skills and concepts you may have learned but haven't yet consistently practiced.
HOW A POD WORKS:
PODS contain 3-6 participants and 1 Facilitator
A COACHING POD is made up of the same 3- 6 participants who meet for 3 SESSIONS booked within a single month.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A POD SESSION?
The series of 3 SESSIONS will either have a THEME (for example you might want to focus on the meditation technique called RAIN for 1 or even all 3 of the sessions OR
maybe you want to work on the tools to Thought Swap if you are in a CBT POD)
a COACHING POD may have a more GENERAL FOCUS as offered by the Facilitator.
Each SESSION lasts for a full hour (60 minutes if there are 3-4 participants and 75 minutes for 5- 6 participants). The THREE SESSIONS are completed within a calendar month.
Each session will include a 15-20 minute Meditation. The rest of the time is divided evenly between participants so they can share their experiences, or ask questions.
COACHING PODS are sold in a set of 3 sessions. Payment covers one month of sessions - if you miss one of your 3 sessions, you will not be refunded and the session cannot be 'made -up' at another time.
Most people will sign up as individuals and we will create pods.
You can sign up as a group of friends ( minimum 3 in a pod) but note, all of you must meet the prerequisite.
COST: $160 per participant, which includes all 3 sessions which are to be completed by the pod in a calendar month.
