Testimonials & Reviews From Our Students
Life-altering experience! Powerful! This class put me on the trajectory of my true calling. Master teacher; powerful tools! You won't be the same you after this class. Heartily recommend!
Thanks to this program I get to serve women in a powerful way that helps them realize the fullest potential of who they are. I highly recommend Artist of the Spirit!
Many may arrive at this course with a desire to learn how to better assist and serve others on their journeys through the work of a coach, however they will find what feels like a personal invitation to access their own inner dynamic wisdom and the chance to do so in the safety of a container that is so gently and skillfully held and supported. For me, this inner journey of learning to create impeccable speech, thoughts and intent toward building an inner and outer reality will have lasting vibration in my life. The juicy ingredients of Shamanic tools and energetic practices along with usable business guidance makes for a recipe one will access again and again.
This training helped me with tools to do something that I was already "unofficially" doing - which was coaching/helping friends and acquaintances. Now I feel more confident and have a formula to follow, a place to answer questions, and support from fellow graduates! I highly recommend this program - I learned so much about myself and what I want to create in my life! Do it!
Artist of the Spirit is an amazing journey, where you feel fully supported and gain practical knowledge and experience of becoming the best coach you can possibly be. If you’re looking for a coaching program that asks all of you to show-up, heart, mind, body, soul and Spirit, then this is the program for you. I'm excited to begin coaching and I'm confident in my abilities thanks to Diana and the Artist of the Spirit program.
Artist of the Spirit training program gave me the opportunity to dive deep into the heart of my own process and align with my most authentic self. We may have been learning how to assist others in their journeys, but this course was first and foremost an invitation to interact with my own wisdom. It provided a powerful container of self discovery for my being to grow, evolve, and creating lasting shifts in my life.
After looking at various coaching programs and trainings over the past two years that didn't feel quite right, I am grateful to have found Artist of the Spirit. My experience was everything I hoped it would be and more - from incorporating shamanic wisdom, to energetic counsel, to business advising, all while held in the safe and nourishing container of fierce women.
This program was life changing; the energy practices and the inner work I did made some profound shifts in my life. And I am excited to have these tools to help other women, and have already begun that process and see how much it is helping others.
The AOTS Training program helped me to really explore and learn about my body and the energy that I can work with. It has given me such a rich education that I am using to help women to tune into the depths of themselves. I am so excited to share what I have learned with women in their healing journey. Equally, it is helping me along my journey!
Although I haven't completed the requirements to receive my certification yet, I am using the tools I learned from the Artist of the Spirit program on a daily basis. These tools help me improve my life at work and home; they elevate my awareness in ways I didn't realize were possible. I still hope to complete my certification requirements in the next few weeks and HIGHLY recommend the program!
After taking this class, I understand coaching so much better and I am much clearer on how I can be of service to others. Because we were encouraged and supported to experience everything firsthand, I have learned so much about myself and I feel empowered to use the material. Diana's teaching is sincere, heartfelt, and thoroughly knowledgeable. Artist of the Spirit is completely worth the investment.
In looking back at 12 plus weeks that flew by so quickly, I find that SO much more was ignited. I find that what impacts me most, isn't the idea of certification, or even using it in a career vocational sort of way, but rather it is the personal work and inner journey within, that was ignited and that fire continues in very large ways; THAT is what has been most meaningful.
Out of all of the workshops, webinars, and books I've devoured on my spiritual journey, the Artist of the Spirit Coach Training was by far the most life-changing for personal growth. I used to play small and didn't even know it. Today I stand in my power and my truth; I no longer feel responsible for other people's perception of my reality. Happy Dancing All The Way!
I was debating between this program and other programs. Since I had experience with Heather Ash's work I chose this one. I am really glad I did. The work went way beyond coaching. The healing elements of the program were beyond powerful, and the practice coaching and being coached was extremely valuable.
I think this program helped to boost my confidence tremendously in working with clients and the tools taught are amazing!
What an amazing, enlightening, and interesting journey this has been for me!
As an energy healer, I was delighted at the powerful shamanic energy healing tools that this program offers; I've used them in phone coaching calls as well as integrated these practices into my healing sessions with clients with outstanding results. I also benefited greatly from the inquiry-based coaching methods of this program which helped me focus on guiding a client to her own truth. Even if your goal is simply to work on the impeccability of your communications with others, I think this program is invaluable!
A powerful Coach Training Program - providing a good balance of theory and practical application.
Artist of the Spirit taught me valuable energetic and shamanic practices which are practiced with clients over the phone. As a spiritually inclined coach, these tools definitely set me apart in seeking out my target clients. I enjoyed each step of the process of this program, and felt fully supported as I grew along with learning the material. I connected with like- minded students, and made some long lasting friendships from being in class and working together. My experience as a student of this program was a blessing to my life, on many levels. I am excited to begin working with my clients.
I easily found a client to work with shortly after my certification and I look forward to continuing to grow my business, helping to empower others to live their life's purpose fearlessly.
The Artist of the Spirit Coaching Program gave me powerful tools I know will help my clients find their own answers in the maze of their lives. It helped me become more comfortable guiding the client to make discoveries for themselves. And the program gave me lots of good fodder for my own spiritual growth.
I enjoyed this program. It was a lot of information in a short time but I think it was done appropriately. There was no need to drag it out. If you listen to what Diana told you and you take the time to read and do the work and do the practices it goes smoothly. I had a lot of other things going on at the same time so I felt overwhelmed at times but it is really about being able to discipline yourself and make time.
I learned so much in a short amount of time about energy and healing. The tools I will carry with me for a lifetime and share them with my clients.
Current student here giving an unsolicited testimonial. This is one of the best training programs I have ever been a part of. Diana and HeatherAsh, besides being masterful and encouraging teachers, have created a powerful system for you to tap into and deepen your intuition and to do your own work to support your clients on the energetic level. I'm so sad the course is almost over!!
From FaceBook 10/10/16:
I appreciate you so much Diana Derr Adkins for helping me totally transform my life with the power of your teaching and coaching. Forever grateful every time I coach a client for the wisdom you shared with me. You are a powerful and wise woman and I love you.
Artist of the Spirit has given me the tools to be the artist of my own spirit, and to work with others to become their own best versions. A truly life-changing experience!
All that I have learnt about training to be a Life Coach, Shamanic Coach and Energy Coach. I’ve also felt so supported throughout the program thanks to Diana. I really liked the practical step by steps of how to be a coach and what forms you must think about etc. as well as all the energy and healing work.
Artist of the Spirit coach training truly exceeded my expectations. It is very comprehensive & I learned many tools that I have found helpful in my personal life as well. Diana Adkins, the instructor, was professional & approachable while being supportive & constantly encouraging us to be successful.
I would have to say this program was well written, impeccably researched and taught well. I thoroughly enjoyed it and feel the program would be excellent for anyone training to be a coach.
I was looking for an enhanced learning opportunity that would complement the work I have already completed. I found it !! AOTS gave me an opportunity to be vulnerable and go deeper into my own self exploration as I developed skills to use in my current programs. I highly recommend this program whether you are searching for a new career path or want to expand the one you are currently offering. This is a self empowering program that teaches real life skills you can use personally or professionally. Thank you Diana and HeatherAsh for this awesome program!
It was a wonderful balance of deep material, encouraging support, and a stretch out of my comfort zone challenges. I'm glad I signed up!
I learned so much about myself. I learned ways to take care of myself, to grow more spiritually, and have much more confidence in the skills around energetic work that I want to practice more. I also feel much more confident career wise about being self employed and how to work with clients as a coach.
Diana's knowledge, skill, and feedback was incredibly beneficial in my growth and development in this program. Diana is encouraging, straightforward, and wants to see her students succeed. This program resonated with me because it incorporated the teachings of don Miguel Ruiz, and it wove shamanic and energetic techniques into the training. These are invaluable components that set this coaching program apart from others. I am so glad this program crossed my path when it did, & I am so grateful to Diana, HeatherAsh, and the teachings of don Miguel Ruiz!!!
This is an excellent program both for would-be coaches and people who just want to learn more about themselves.
Wow! All the tools taught are invaluable. The most valuable part was rolling up my sleeves and diving into the practices for myself. We were so encouraged to do our own work in order to best serve our clients from our lived experience, rather than intellectual knowledge. Wisdom is lived experience! The peer coaching was invaluable! The practice of energetic tools and shamanic healing!! The training gave me the beautiful invitation to trust and honor my inner wisdom and intuition and own my personal power!
When I found Artist of the spirit or I should say found me. I had just decided to change my career and pursue coaching but I wasn’t sure how to go about it. I wanted to stay in my authentic creative mindset and help guide people to do the same. I didn’t have to look too far. The name of the program said it all and the more I immersed myself in the program the more I unlocked creative authentic places in myself that I didn’t know were there. Diana teaches in an honest, gentle but fierce way. The mixture of spirituality/Energy and physiology teachings in the program was the perfect combination I was looking for. I changed and grew while learning how best to guide other people to do the same. Thank you!
Also thank you for sharing this experience with me - it’s been the best 13 weeks. I can’t wait to see how we all blossom from here, many thanks Diana for following your passion to pass on this invaluable information along with all the support.
When asked, "What was the the most advantageous part of the program.....
AOTS Coach Training gave me the confidence and the tools to take the step towards my dream of coaching. The course content, amazing facilitators and the support from other members of the group has been invaluable! I recommend this program for anyone who is drawn to bringing greater depth, compassion and energetic awareness to an existing coaching or counseling practice or anyone just beginning their journey as a coach.
There is no other training that offers shamanic and energetic healing practices - which are so effective and set me apart from other coaches. I was able to keep a very busy work schedule at the same time that I was in the training, which was essential.
Artist of the Spirit was the ideal program for me.
I would like to share that I believe this course could have great value to anyone who is looking to grow emotionally and spiritually, regardless of whether they have any intention of ever coaching a paying client. I learned so much about myself over the 13 weeks and I feel that I spiritual growth and understanding has increased by leaps and bounds, which will enhance my life moving forward.
I've been using our teachings in my coaching sessions with amazing results. The class supported me in my own journey of creating my coaching practice.
This was a coaching program with so much information and training. It is especially wonderful as it includes learning Shamanic tools to use with clients and has a spiritual touch to it. This will give me so much more to use when I work with my clients. Thank you so much!!
I have postponed doing my last class because I do not want it to end. This is how much I enjoyed the program. Diana and HeatherAsh are most insightful and they are really dedicated to make you become the greatest coach they both already are.
I think the program is great for people who are interested in doing Shamanic Energy work and Life coaching who need experience and confidence to put themselves out there. The program has great content and gives a framework that you can immediately apply to your coaching practice. Diana is great at what she does and great at sharing the best practices of coaching and shamanic energy work. Highly recommend!
Diana did a shamanic practice on me [in class] for a pain in my back and it was very powerful and I didn’t expect it to be emotional and so powerful….and the next morning there was an 80% improvement in my back!
Participating in AOTS coaching program was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is worth every penny of the investment and then some. Diana and HeatherAsh held a powerful and safe container for us to learn spiritual and energetic techniques to help people connect with their guides and access their inner wisdom. We learn so much in this program, and the best part is that we also get a chance to really practice it, so we can gain in confidence and improve our skills. I have shared these techniques and guided visualizations with several of my colleagues and friends, and I am always awed by the deep healing and profound insights people are able to access. I also have experienced personal transformation through practicing the powerful tools that are shared in the course. If you are considering a career in coaching, and want to work with people on the spiritual - energetic level, this is the program for you.
The Artist of the Spirit Coach Training program is applicable for anyone on or interested in a spiritual journey, regardless of whether they become a coach or not. For those who do want to coach, it is a perfect launch pad because of the support structure and the community that is created by the instructor and other participants. It is comprehensive yet not overwhelming. Loved it!
The valuable part of the program was all of it :-) The material to read prior was very helpful to have in preparation for the call. It has also helped me to be able to refer back to the material. Having the written material then reinforced by Diana in the weekly calls and having it demonstrated was beneficial. Lastly the coaching pairs were extremely valuable. I appreciated having two different coaching pairs to practice my skills. The length of the program was perfect, how the calls were facilitated was awesome.
As well as teaching me how to be a better coach, this program gave me unique tools to really make a difference in the lives of my clients-It was brilliant!
Diana you are an amazing human! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and gifts with all of us. This program has had a tremendous impact on my life!
This program was life changing, the energy practices and the inner work I did made some profound shifts in my life. And I am excited to have these tools to help other women, and have already begun that process and see how much it is helping others.
This course exceeded my expectations. The lessons are well written & the coach explained things thoroughly. The experiential exercises as peer coaches & clients along with the written & oral feedback was a valuable experience that certainly boosted my confidence as I embark on this new career. It also helped learn to be a better listener & communicate more clearly in my personal life. I highly recommend it!
I have been on a spiritual journey since 2008 and during this time I have gathered many gifts and abilities. My motivation to participate in the Artist of the Spirit Coaching was to offer a platform that would recognize my gifts and allow me to be in service to others to help them shine their divine light. As a graduate of the program, I now feel confident that I can put my energetic pulse out in the world to help others while my own unique light continues to shine brilliantly!
So loved and appreciated this program and Diana's complete integrity, support, nurturing, encouraging and as a true coach, pushing you out of your comfort zone and into a new space of learning to do the same for others. I would take it again and again just for the internal work that gets done in the process of learning to "listen" fully with your spirit, mind and body as you work towards doing the same in holding that sacred space for another's journey through towards own healing.
Overall the program was excellent. I loved the way Diana held the space for us and guided us along. I really like the practical work with classmates, that was really helpful. The calls with Diana were super; she modeled how to be a coach and tested us a bit which was a big learning experience.
More than a program, the Artist of the Spirit coach training has been a healing journey to me - probably one of the most important journey I undertook. Besides building coaching skills, I also witnessed the power of energy tools & the Toltec teachings and learnt to take better care of my energy.
I found that both Diana and Heatherash to be superb in their teaching. They both had an excellent way of explaining the course material. Diana was especially helpful with being available when I had specific questions and needed extra time to complete the course assignments when needed. She also helped me see thru my own BS and get to the root and the cause of my own problem. I highly recommend this course, weather you want to become a Life Coach or just want to improve on your people skills. Thank you for such a great experience.
I must admit the last 13 weeks flew by for me! I feel so rich, full and excited! What a powerful training, and I want to thank everyone for their contribution. Mahalo Diana Derr Adkins for your wisdom, encouragement and truth! I look forward to hearing about the new journeys we each decide to embark on from here on out, and watching us make a positive difference in the world. SENDING MY LOVE!
