Next Cohort Starts April 2017: apply_butt

The Deep Coaching Institute’s Deep Coaching Certification (DCC) program offers an advanced and unique in-depth learning opportunity. It is well suited for experienced coaching and organization development professionals who wish to offer an Enneagram-Based approach to the Practice of Presence to promote more expansive states of being, thinking and acting to clients. This nine-month, Four Part, program combines two live retreats, in-depth distance learning courses, and student partnering, with a highly valued five months of supervised fieldwork. All courses are approved by ICF (International Coaching Federation) and IEA (International Enneagram Association) for credentialing or continuing education credits.  Students can follow either the Cohort Track, and receive Certification in nine months, or the Independent Track and receive Certification in up to three years.  Independent Track students not interested in Certification, can take any of the Four Parts and receive ICF and IEA approved credits.

Our program is well-grounded in Enneagram and related conceptual knowledge, supported by heart intelligence and body intelligence. It is based on the eminently practical and profound nature of presence. Below is an outline of the courses that comprise the DCC program.

The DCC’s curriculum is designed so each course builds on the experience and knowledge gained from the previous course. Weekly contact with faculty, mentors and colleagues throughout the program creates a learning environment that supports profound shifts personally and professionally. Below is a sample program timeline. Please note, the schedule for your specifc program may vary.




Human development professionals who have a foundational understanding of the Enneagram and who are drawn to meeting clients in the vast inner terrain, will benefit from the depth, focus, and small-group, experiential nature offered by the DCC program. Experienced coaches and organization development consultants and personnel are the ones who continue to fill the cohorts.
