Sharing the Gifts of our Circle: Toci Teachers, Spiritual Integrity Coaches, Circle Guides, and Toci Ministers offerings


Spiritual Integrity Coaching

Are you ready to stop judging yourself, move beyond victimization, and tap into your deep wisdom and intuition instead of your doubt and fear? Imagine your busy mind at rest, centered in the joy of the Now. You CAN be clear on your path and purpose, without your mind dragging you into disaster thinking, constantly comparing you to who it thinks you should be, or telling you all the things you are doing wrong. We call this state freedom!

Our coaches are teachers and healers who have completed our two-year, advanced Jump! Apprenticeship (or other extensive study with us) and our Coaches Training Program. All of our coaches are also ministers or ministers in training with the Toltec Center for Creative Intent. They are insightful guides and mentors and have each transformed their own personal dream to live their integrity.

In my travels I always meet people who feel isolated or are not sure how to get the support they need on their healing or spiritual path. From my own experience with being coached I know that having a personal coach is an incredibly powerful way to move past blocks and stuck places. We offer two options of how you can work with a coach:

One-time Coaching sessions.
Need reflection, support, or guidance around a particular issue? We now offer one-time sessions to help you make a clear decision or get feedback and/or some love in a crisis. Pick the coach who resonates most with you, or let us choose who we feel will serve you best. $75 for an hour session; $60 if you are currently in a program with us.

Create Your Own Spiritual Integrity Coaching Focus
Whether you are looking for a month or a year's worth of coaching, our Spiritual Integrity coaches can will work with you personally to unweave any tangles in your brain and in your life! Our coaches are extensively trained to facilitate lasting change in all different areas of your life, from work to relationships, from health to finances, from your spiritual path to your life's purpose. They have both the capacity to assist you in practical action steps to transform your outer world and advanced training in shamanic energy work to get at those deeply buried beliefs and heal them.
