Essentials Online


Essentials Online gives you the advantage of online accessibility, learning, viewing and integrating at your own pace, and reviewing key videos of most value to you. Katie spent months consolidating the key processes from the three-day seminar so you can dive right into the activities that will make a difference in your well being, your close relationships, and your work.

The workbook pdf contains the purpose of each activity, any handouts that accompany the particular video, and applications for the process you’ve just experienced. Whether you are an individual passionate about lifelong discovery, a coach, counselor or organizational leader, Essentials Online will give you more tools to expand your effectiveness and joy in living and your work with others.

The purchase of (and hopefully, the full experience of) access to the videos fulfills the requirement for the advanced courses. Essentials Online meets the prerequisite for our advanced courses but does NOT fulfill the prerequisite for the 5-day trainings we offer twice a year to become a Big Leap Coach using our approach. We highly recommend you attend the Evolutionary Playground that Katie teaches just prior to the 5-day, as discovering together with other consciousness enthusiasts is the best way to prepare for the deep dive of our 5-day Advanced Trainings.

I just spent a day going through the videos and manual of your Essentials Online. It is terrific! It’s a concentrated version of many trainings with gaps edited out. So I could review the best stuff easily. I was entertained by watching you, Kathlyn, and watching everyone else we knew from the last few years of trainings. And where audio might be difficult to understand there are captions so everything is clear. This is a BIG help to me in planning my own courses. The big flow chart, the way you set up participants for the day–it’s all there organized for us. There you are holding our hand as we go forward. I feel confident.
Many thanks, Kathlyn. Recommended to all!
