Simplifying the Art and Power of Coaching 5 day Retreat

Carrer Júpiter, 2, 03581 L'Albir, Alicante, Spain
Simplifying the Art and Power of Coaching; Applying the Three Principles Most Effectively in Coaching
Working with people one on one from an inside-out, Three Principles perspective is not a skill, it’s an art; an art that takes not only a deep understanding but cultivation.
Being effective with others from this inside-out perspective has nothing to do with being trained as a traditional psychotherapist, counselor or coach.
Being effective with others can be quite different from having a personal understanding of the Three Principles, although grounding in the understanding is a prerequisite.
We have observed that some people attempting to share the Three Principles in their practice are floundering; others know they could be doing better but don’t know where to turn for help. Still others who do well generally run into difficult clients whom they can’t seem to help. No matter how good we are at helping others we can all get even better.
This Retreat will help people become not only more personally grounded but also will cultivate better grounding in the art of one-to-one work from the inside-out, achieving the outcome of working with more efficacy to produce better results.

What Makes Us Different?
What people get from Gabriela’s and Jack’s Three Principles Retreats that they can’t get elsewhere?
Deep love. The group seems to bask in a feeling of love. As we all go deeper together as equals a beautiful feeling seems to come over the group. Jack and Gabriela learned directly from Syd Banks, who emphasized the crucial importance of “the feeling.”
Deep connection. In going through the experience together and sharing so much together in pairs and in small groups, many participants feel a deep connection and become friends for life.
Deeper grounding. Many who have been through other programmes have told us that here they gain a deeper depth of understanding of the Principles, due to our focus on the simplicity and depth.
Deep deep listening. Along with “the feeling,” we emphasize deep listening to such an extent that many who have come out of other programmes told us they realized they had not understood deep listening well enough. We see it as the key factor in impacting others.
Safety/Nonjudgment. People get to practice coaching/counseling in a safe, secure setting while receiving comforting, non-judgmental, loving yet incisive feedback that allows people to feel totally comfortable learning from each other’s successes and mistakes alike.
Individual Attention. Because participants in our trainings number between 18-28, participants receive individual attention and are encouraged to bring individual issues to the facilitators.
An Uplifting Feeling. We have received feedback that people leave our retreats feeling uplifted, and it carries over.
A Beautiful Setting: Few locations have more combined beauty and feeling than the Spanish Mediterranean coast. Our retreat format allows people time to experience the sea, beach, mountains, cliffs, walks, hikes, with the external feeling of the place matching the inner feeling.
Meet your teachers for this 5 day retreat:
Gabriela Maldonado-Montano and Dr Jack Pransky
Dr. Jack Pransky is a very experienced coach and trainer of the Three Principles, who is focused on the health of the helper. He has been facilitating this understanding and how to teach it for over 20 years and shares his vast experience with great dedication and passion. Jack has the fantastic ability to describe the Three Principles right to the point emphasizing the simplicity and the depth of their nature. He demonstrates the power that unfolds through deepening ones understanding in relating the Three Principles to everyday life situations. Also in his books he describes this understanding and the way it plays out in life in a clear and practical way for everybody to grasp.
Gabriela Maldonado-Montano has dedicated her entire professional life to help her clients discover the wellbeing and natural genius that resides at the center of human beings. In over two decades of sharing the fundamental laws that create the human experience, she has worked individually and in groups across many settings including; education, alcohol and drug recovery, youth and adult incarceration, community development, burn out prevention, and executive coaching. Seeing her clients blossom regardless of the particular culture, gender, age or circumstance inspires her to continue her work in English and Spanish across this awesome world.
Gabriela had the incredible opportunity of being part of organizations at the forefront of change such as the Santa Clara County Department of Alcohol and Drug Services and the Center for Sustainable Change both in the USA. Both organizations strengthen her commitment to serve people in the most severe of circumstances. She has been honored to provide services alongside many coaches, trainers and training organizations nationally and internationally.
Today Gabriela lives alongside her lovely husband Wil and her sweet cat Honey in Gilroy, California. She is profoundly grateful for the partnerships she has across continents that allow her to discover the innate creativity and resourcefulness in herself and others. Gabriela has found a renewed commitment to share the simple understanding that let her live her life with a sense of peace and endless possibilities.

What some of our fabulous 2018 attendees have to say:
"I had no expectations at all when I came here and I really don’t know why because I usually don’t do anything without thinking of what I am going to get out of it. I realize that what got me here was needing to hear the simplicity.I needed to sit in the simplicity. I have been blown away by the ease of that (the simplicity) I look around the room and I think of the personalities and the people …this is a representation of humanity and the infinite possibility of how we are together. Taking the blanket off of … you are this and I am that, and this culture and I am right you are wrong…you lift that off and all you get is this LOVE.Absolutely bloody Marvelous!"
"You guys (Jack and Gabriela) are great at facilitating this and bringing it together…it is just beautiful. (this week) I’ve seen a lot about deep listening, and I am very interested in deep listening and the main reason why I came was for this connection and this space …it is so nice to be able to BE. It has been fantastic"
This training is not only an amazing opportunity for you to learn from extremely experienced teachers, but also to connect with a small group of like-minded people who all want to share the Three Principles too.
And with the added bonus of being in sunny Spain you could combine the trainings with a holiday too. We have negotiated a fabulous room rate for you which can be taken advantage of either side of the retreat dates (subject to availability)!
We can’t wait to meet you out here on the Costa Blanca. There is no shortage of restaurants, cafés, mountain walks, beaches, local beauty spots, etc.
Plus transfer from Alicante airport to the hotel is super easy and very economical - from just 8 euros each way. Check out Benniconnect as an example - especially their express service.
Look forward to seeing you in October!
