Testimonials

I had wanted to attend PCT for 7 years and when I finally did, it exceeded my expectations! I took the class hoping for 3 things: first, that my coaching skill would be elevated to a higher level; second, that I would be personally transformed; and third, that I would establish new meaningful relationships with other coaches. All these things took place – and not just as an event occurring at a particular moment in time, but as a seed that was planted and continues to grow and bear fruit. The initial residential experience established us as a deeply connected group. It laid a foundation of trust and openness that facilitated a deepening connection throughout our classes and practice together during the months to come. The reading and related classes were incredibly enriching. The faculty was outstanding. The weekly online classes became a moment in the week we all looked forward to.  The closing residential session was a reunion of dearest friends that took us to new depths of awareness and new vistas of personal vision.  Like the ripples from a stone thrown in a pond, I will be feeling the effects of my PCT class for quite some time as I continue to learn and grow. I am incredibly grateful to have taken this class.
