The Relateful Coaching Training

The Next Level of Being A Relational Presence Professional Coach

Next Cohort: September 9 2024. Deadline to register is September 2nd 2024.


This four month practicum trains you to provide guidance from a deep state of flow.

You'll deepen your capacity to apply the essence of Relational Presence into 1-1 sessions, finding new strength in your leadership and capacity for discernment, as well as more compassion and ability to let go into the unknown.

This will be especially meaningful for those of you who are already in healing professions, life-coaching, entrepreneurs who are looking to start a coaching business, as well as managers who have direct reports or are otherwise in positions of authority and mentorship.

This is an intensive training, requiring at least 5 hours a week of live group or pair practice, as well as individual study time.

On this journey you will learn:


How to synthesize the meditative, 'non-goal orientation' of relatefulness with the 'more, better, increase your thriving' mentality of 1-1 coaching.

How to bring your gifts into helping others—without entering into codependency or old-paradigms of one-or-the-other?

How to make a positive contribution in the world, coming from a wakeful place of oneness which recognizes there's no difference to be made at the absolute/ultimate level of reality—the place Lao Tzu speaks from when he says “Do you want to improve the world? I don't think it can be done. The world is sacred. It can't be improved."

From Experience:

More and more of our top Relational Presence leaders are taking up roles as sought-after coaches for individuals and executive clients. We feel this course is a really good place to gain a wealth of practical wisdom and discernment from facing the whole range of human challenges within 1-1 coaching sessions, with relatefulness as the "Operating System" everything else plugs into and runs on.

In addition to the wisdom from thousands of hours of individual and group coaching sessions—both the successes and failures—and thousands more hours leading relatefulness, this course draws insights from Integral Theory (including why it's useful in coaching, how to use & how not to use, special focus on green and teal shadows that show up in many coaching contexts), NARM, and Philosophical Counseling.

4 Supervised Coaching Sessions

During the latter half of the program you'll put your new skills to practice, learning and updating 'on the field', coaching a guest client with the safety and guidance of supervision from Valerie and Renee.

17 Weeks of Live Group Study

Each week we'll meet for three hours to discuss the curriculum, run exercises, and do live demonstrations with meta-commentary. You'll also practice coaching and being coached with your peers, for 1 hour each.

100 Pages of Intensive Self-Study Curriculum

Much of the technique and understanding described in this curriculum is an unspoken resource that the best relateful facilitators draw from in their sessions. Now they're coming to light!

4 months unlimited access to RelatefulAnywhere and Relateful Austin 

As part of this course you will get unlimited access to our online platform Relateful Anywhere and our in person studio Relateful Austin to practice with a world wide community of facilitators and participants for 4 months.

Key benefits of this course:

  • Synthesize the meditative, 'non-goal orientation' of relatefulness with the 'more, better, increase your thriving' mentality of 1-1 coaching
  • Make a positive contribution in the world, from a wakeful place of "oneness" which recognizes there's no difference to be made at the absolute/ultimate level of reality
  • Build your business or apply it to the areas of your life where you already act as a mentor, supervisor, boss, or authority figure

You will learn to:

  • Embody the art of being relateful with someone’s Way of Being
  • Spot someone's Level of Presence
  • Discern Level of Surrender
  • Be relateful with a client's Identity Level Commitments & their Ontological Beliefs
  • Be relateful at the Level of Awareness, not just personality, and experience uniquely beautiful expressions of Being
  • Show up more fully by being willing to ask more challenging questions
  • Share more of your expertise, while being even less attached

As such, this program is as much about you getting more clear on your own ways of being, level of presence, level of surrender, identity level commitments, ontological beliefs, and levels of awareness.

What participants are saying...



"I feel truly empowered by being in this last Relateful Coaching Training. I can’t remember a time in my life where I’ve been in such a challenging learning environment while being supported and cheered on along the way. I feel I’m coming into a deeper capacity with anyone I’m now coaching and circling, of holding them in a greater love and empathy for the unique challenges one faces, and how life wants to express through us all in such beautiful ways.

I can't recommend this course enough for those wishing to deepen their relateful skills, learn new tools, or to energize their life in the practice of presence as a paid coach - in service of themself and others."


"As you would expect, this course teaches a specific curriculum—a framework for relateful coaching, corresponding theories and ways of seeing the world, and actual examples of the coaching being put into practice. But my biggest takeaways didn’t come directly from the material. They had more to do with learning how to embody what is fundamental to this coaching style: Trusting the already-happening unfoldment of life and recognizing how to foster it. The coaching and being coached (you do a lot of both in this course) coming out of that perspective have benefited me tremendously, and they’ve helped me become more me."


"I was already certified by Integral Coaching Canada, but felt it was missing something - namely, the experience of presence I get with relatefulness. After finishing Level Up and experiencing life-changing growth, I wanted to try coaching again. The Relateful Coaching Training has again transformed my life.

I now feel ready and willing to take my service into the world. The hands-on approach gave me confidence, the live classes helped me feel supported, and the lessons provided a framework to go through it all."


The coaching course has led me to come into deeper alignment, truth, power, confidence, flow, and leadership in my life. It has helped me find my voice, not only as a circler and coach, but also as a person. Receiving lots of coaching during the program clarified so many issues for me. The most convincing thing about the program was receiving this style of coaching, so I could see first hand that it works! I've seen it work on me over and over, and I've seen it work on others countless times as well. It works so well that even just trying out the tools for the first time can lay bare the problems in one's life, how one relates to them, and what further choices are possible, which has resulted for me in a noticably better quality of life, and has enabled me to support others much more effectively and with lots of fun, too :)


"Speaking as a coach, learning strategist, and consultant: The coaching training is one of the best professional development programs I’ve done. The learning and development field has matured significantly over the last decade. Clients now know more and expect more. To be an effective coach today requires new relational skills, self-regulatory capacity, strong attunement, embodied presence, and an ability to make clear sense of complexities. The senior coaches and the deeply mutually supportive cohort in this course made for not only a solid professional training but a powerful, personalized leadership development experience for each of us, strengthening all those capacities and more. Anyone whose role involves coaching or influencing others should find this training of enormous practical benefit."


"I love the coaching course! It has massively impacted every area of my life and it’s made me a better coach, a better facilitator, a better circler, a better friend, and a better partner. The thing that I’m walking away with that I love most from this course and the framework of this coaching methodology, is that it’s so strong and foundational and yet it allows the spaciousness for us to be with someone’s way of being at the core, bring it into awareness and then work with it in any way that’s needed. I found myself enjoying pulling in other things on top of it. With someone who’s in a really challenging context, I can pull in IFS or a therapy modality or I can just go into business coaching if I need to; if we really need to be with the outside world.  The spaciousness is there and the framework allows for this deep thing where you get to the core way of being and what’s being held in that, that’s blocking things. I really love that. It’s really a super power training."


"I have found a capacity to bring myself forward in new ways - that I never knew I was previously preventing. The best expenditure of time that I've experienced."


"This course is more than learning how to coach—it's extending the practice of relatefulness to the rest of life. It's introducing a deeper map of life and practicing integrating concepts into reality."
