When your commitment is to CLIENT RESULTS… SOUL-SHAKING TRANSFORMATION… and earning a STELLAR REPUTATION as a TRUE LEADER in the personal growth industry…
Program Overview & Syllabus
To rise above the noise of "good" service to total excellence, to shine the light of truth & clarity into the dark craggy corners of the psyche of those we are here to serve…
To master human nature and the very human tendencies that keep clients rooted in their undesired status quo.
And co-create actual, long-lasting change with our clients. Real Transformation.
So that we can look clients in the eye, knowing we can handle their deepest fears & resistances, and deliver on the promise to help them experience something new, something much better.
If you’ve ever wondered if you’re actually creating lasting, transformative results in the lives of your clients…
If you are nervous about client resistance, fear, self-sabotage, defensiveness and even sometimes blame…
If you worry about delivering on your promise 100% of the time with 100% of the clients you serve…
If you delight in the potential of cracking open hearts, bringing those you serve to the brink of their truth, and delivering lasting change to humanity...
If you are tired of over-working (& over-thinking!) to get clients motivated, inspired and inaction...
If you desire to be known as more than just a coach, but an exceptional practitioner who co-creates results...
I want you to know two things:
1) I deeply respect your determination for excellence, and your integrity.
That you are very committed to delivering exceptional results - an experience above & beyond - for the people who trust you to serve them.
2) You are not alone.
There simply aren’t many coach certification programs that are willing to go into the depths of what it takes to master client behavior and co-create permanent, positive change in others.
Are you ready to be having a FLOURISHING, IMPACTFUL and DEEPLY RESONANT coaching business, with clients who never leave and recommend you whole-heartedly to everyone they know?
Then you must become masterful at transformation.
Mastery of your craft is the ULTIMATE Business Success Strategy.
Here's why: The self-development industry is totally saturated (though there is PLENTY of space for you if you become a SACRED DEPTHS COACH).
Every program and every entrepreneur looks like everyone else. Very few practitioners STAND OUT for helping their clients create stellar results and REAL CHANGE:
The world NEEDS the transformation industry to STEP UP right now so we can truly help heal the planet. And, your business needs YOU to focus on facilitating world-class transformation.
If we want to go beneath the surface of what is truly driving a client’s behaviors, actions and results, we need to have the willingness, confidence and skills to do so.
You see, exceptional coaching isn’t just about helping someone feel good in the moment. It’s the art of allowing your client to see her actions, thoughts and behaviors in the clearest light possible…and then expertly supporting her in creating change.
Here is what most coaches don't know when they start coaching:
Humans are quite adept at telling others (and themselves) what they want to hear, and creating circumstances to avoid their own truth and evolution. Without the ability to see the unseen, hear the unheard, illuminate what lies in the darkness, and be motivated to change pattern…
Our clients will present with resistance, stuckness, confusion and reversion to the status quo.
And we as coaches, if we aren't properly trained, we become frustrated, doubting our ability, and feeling not so great.
The good news is we can do better.
By wading into The Sacred Depths of our clients' inner worlds …we can create reliable and transformational results as a coach, healer, facilitator or transformational expert.
When you can confidently stand in the light of the results that you co-create with your clients, your marketing becomes clear. You don’t need to over-promise or over-deliver, your results speak for themselves.
Your business gets easier. Word of mouth about you spreads like wildfire. You feel more confident & authentic in raising your rates or becoming more visible and bold in your marketing.
You transcend standard online marketing and become the leader of a tribe or mission. When you share an opportunity to be with you at a retreat or workshop, your people come. Without question.
Ultimately you fully embody what you teach, allowing you to communicate beyond words.
You know these women. Their very presence holds your attention and leaves you desiring more. They can do this, frankly, because they’ve done their work. They’ve walked through their own fire and committed to their own evolution in the name of serving others.
“I’ve been a full-time coach for 13 years now. Each year I have a constant drive to get better, go deeper and learn more about my clients. The Sacred Depths Coaching Program gave me more tools to recognize my client’s fears and resistance, and to help them walk through them. I’ve become a better coach and gotten out of ruts that I didn’t even know I was in. The program has also supported me to go deeper into myself to fight my own resistance and procrastination. My clients now regularly rave about their sessions and send me emails afterwards saying how helpful they were. The program is a must on the path to become excellent and masterful as a coach.”
— Monica Shah, Business Coach, CEO Revenue Breakthrough www.RevenueBreakthrough.com

A Sacred Depths Coach knows how to hold the most sacred space possible for clients to become more self-aware and heal.
She knows how to gracefully handle tense situations– situations where folks may feel angry or self-defeated or judgmental.
A Sacred Depths Coach doesn’t flinch when clients encounter obstacles, but knows exactly how to navigate them through it.
A Sacred Depths Coach knows how to give fully and generously WITHOUT exhausting herself or draining her energy.
A Sacred Depths Coach guides in ways that don’t overwhelm others, teaches in ways that the learning & growth actually stick permanently instead of falling away as soon as her client leaves the session.
She knows how to not be afraid when big emotions come up.
She holds deep wisdom about human nature and life, and masterfully teaches it through her coaching.
She is totally ethical; she knows how hane client projections, and how NOT to project on her clients.
And a Sacred Depths Coach is a person who is REAL and AUTHENTIC, someone who herself shifts, heals and transforms as she steps more and more into who she is as a leader…..
A Sacred Depths Coach is a guide, a teacher, a coach, a speaker whose clients and audiences remember her, whose clients and audiences have immense gratitude and love for, whose clients and audiences credit as one of the main reasons they are as successful as they are, credit for helping provide the greatest learnings and transformations, and whose clients and audiences talk about and refer to others.

Thiss is a training that will elevate you to become the cream of the crop when it comes to mentoring, guiding, healing, shifting and transforming your clients.
However, for the sake of simplicity….most coach training programs focus on one thing only: teaching you how to become better at your coaching skills.
This training goes ways deeper to support you in becoming Coaching Mastery.
To truly become a master, I support you in the following 3 pillars:
Masterful Coaching Skills: In this program, you thoroughly learn the skills, techniques and tools that the most effective coaches & teachers use to co-create radical and incredible change with their clients. Skills like Listening, Questioning, Accountability and many more that you will have at your disposal for every coaching session or workshop you lead.
Mastery of Human Behavior: The truth is that Masterful Coaching Skills are vital, but are actually not enough if you are truly committed to your clients results, healing and transformation. In order to bring your coaching skills alive, you must understand your clients deeply and intimately….to know the right questions to ask, to listen between the lines…this is why Mastery of Human Behavior is not only essential; it’s a game changer for anyone who is a coach. This is the only coaching program that will take you deep into human tendencies, human responses, and human belief systems.
Personal Mastery: To be an exceptional coach that your clients trust and truly learn from, you must do your own inner work. Period. You must work through your own fears, look at your own belief systems, challenge your own habits and patterns. This is the only way to be in integrity as a practitioner. And this is also the only way to show up with confidence in the container. The work we do together in this training program will change YOU forever, you will come to know yourself in ways you never thought possible. Even if you've spent decades on your personal work, you will experience massive breakthroughs and new, powerful shifts.
Am I the mentor to trust with your evolution toward mastery? Well...
I’ve dedicated the last 18 years of my life to MASTERY of transformational leadership, coaching and facilitation. Over the last 18 years I have led literally HUNDREDS of Retreats, workshops, rituals, classes and seminars. In that time I’ve led thousands of women and men in the United States and abroad in 1:1 coaching work and in groups. And I have been training coaches and facilitators for over a decade as well.
I am proud to share that my clients credit our work together as some of the most profound and life-defining work they have ever done. They tell me that the experience I lead them through is of higher quality than anything else out there. They thank me for guiding them to achieve their most desired goals, and perhaps more importantly: to become more of whom they are meant to be.
My leadership has activated and healed participants deeply and in very sacred ways, has yielded results that I would have never imagined, has generated more income for me through clients resigning and telling their friends, and has left me feeling satisfied, connected to my brilliance, and knowing I am living out my sacred mission in the world.
My clients are coaches and yoga instructors and business mentors and transformational speakers and real estate agents and massage therapists and music teachers and sleep coaches and pilates instructors and beyond. Some have just begun coaching and others are very experienced coaching over decades time. But here’s what they all have in common – through my mentorship….
My clients bring the house down in their 1:1 sessions, and at their retreats and workshops.
They have raving fans.
They are known as the BEST at what they do.
My students are known as exceptional practitioners in their field. Their client rosters grow naturally because their reputations precede them. They worry less about their performance because they know how to handle any client situation wih ease. They thank me over and over for training them to become truly masterful at human transformation.
I share all this with you not to impress you, but to impress upon you that becoming a masterful coach is not optional if you want to have a thriving, impactful business that you feel amazing about.
There are certain skills and elements the coach must master to successfully create REAL shifts, healing and openings for participants.
In fact, I’ve learned the hard way that without these tools, things can go very, very wrong. Your work can fall flat, or your clients will become upset or frustrated with you, or you will leave client sessions feeling exhausted and spent.
Most practitioners these days can fall into this trap because they have not been taught how to become masterful coaches.
And you aren’t simply born with coaching mastery – even if you’re a “natural”, the only way to become an EXPERT is to learn how.
Most coach trainings out there don’t teach the “secret sauce” to go from good or great coaching to ROCK THE HOUSE coaching.
When I train practitioners, we leave no stone unturned so that you have every tool & technique you need to e an exceptional coach who knows exactly how to co-create incredible transformational and results with your clients.
Some of the skills you learn include:
You can do this, too…
When you learn to create deep and powerful transformation, utilizing skill and finesse that will bring your clients to their knees, by learning how to hold space for others to find their souls, and by honoring the truth in your core that it’s your birth-rite to feel sacred and holy… EVERYTHING CHANGES.
And, instead of learning a new coaching “method” – which can only take you so far – you’ll walk away with the confidence and the skills to create your own methods. You’ll be able to create incredible transformational experiences, no matter what content you use. And you’ll step more fully into who you are as a transformational leader.
"For years, I have secretly wished for an experienced, mastery-level coach to step up and create the certification I wish I’d had back when I was new to coaching. Something that could cut YEARS off the learning curve of an ambitious, highly driven yet empathic woman like me; something with the repeatable secrets of how to REALLY move clients to their success. Joanna is that coach, and Sacred Depths IS that certification.
Coaching is more than listening; it’s more than asking the right question at the right time. Coaching is the ability to BE with the wild emotional ride that IS your clients’ process of transformation – while being with your own at the same time! Very few coaching certifications out there speak to this, let alone teach it. But Joanna goes THERE, because she knows that your success depends on more than knowing how to get clients, or feeding them tired “done for you blueprints” without REALLY understanding the inner processes at play when making big leaps.
With Sacred Depths, you’ll get exactly what you need to stand out as a coach in today’s crowded marketplace: mastery-level skills that empower you to facilitate epic results for your clients. Too many coach training programs make OTHER things the focus, like marketing and “done for you” content. Instead, Joanna gives you the real-world skills, AND the personal growth for YOU that is required to succeed – for your clients will only go as far as YOU do!
Whether you’re new to coaching (just getting started) or you’re an experienced coach looking to get past your own blind spots and triggers so you can take your client results to the next level… Sacred Depths is for you. Joanna will set you up for THE best marketing you could ever have in your business – scores of happy clients you’ve helped in ways greater than you could have ever hoped for, or imagined."

These bonuses are worth far more than your investment in this program.
This is our gift to you – so that you take this learning and divest it powerfully and effectively into the world through your sacred work.
This is not “Coaching Lite.” In fact if this program speaks to you it is likely that you may have some ambivalence about even calling yourself a coach. You know you go deeper than most coaches, and you know your work has (or is meant to have) more gravitas. "Coach" is really just the tip of the iceberg of what you really provide.
This is not a journey you take without deeply desiring in your heart for your work itself to be remarkable, exceptional and truly unforgettable.
This is not another marketing course. But this program will transform your business. Why? Because when you create the results that come of your commitment to your growth… Clients will come to you. It’s inevitable.
Mastery of your craft is the ultimate business strategy.

— Sharon Epstein
What are the requirements to receive my official certification, so that I can promote myself as a Certified Sacred Depths Coach?
A: If you would like to be officially certified and promote yourself as a Sacred Depths coach, these are the requirements:
I’m a seasoned and accomplished coach. Is this training for me?
A: In short, YES! As a seasoned coach and as a transformational leader, I’m sure you know the importance of constantly holding yourself to a higher standard & being on a journey of continuous learning. I’ve been coaching for nearly two decades, and I am both an expert at it as well as in the perpetual mastery experience.
Some of the tools I teach in this program will reinforce what you already know, thus making you more masterful at them. And many other of the tools I teach will be completely new to you, and will help you become even more effective at creating results.
Most of the participants who enroll in this program are already incredible coaches & practitioners, forces to be reckoned with.
I haven't yet started working with clients. Is this training for me?
A: Sacred Depth s definitely an Advanced and Accelerated training. It is 100% suitable for new practitioners who are very smart and learn quickly, who enjoy going deep with others ad are committed to doing exceptional and transformation work.
How do I decide between the FULL program, or just Level 1?
A: I have designed Level 1 to be a 10-month full-service, highly immersive, highly supportive experience that gives you EVERYTHING you need to know, and gives you the time and space to truly process, integrate and master all of your new skills. Level 1 is truly incredible and very full.
Level 2 is limited to 20 women only, and is for you if you are looking for 3 very specific things: MORE intimate & direct connection with me, dedicated time receive support and feedback on your client case studies, and depth training on how to leverage Shadow & Archetypes in your coaching. Working with Shadow & Archetype is truly some of the most transformative work you can do, and it requires intimate and focused training, which we do over our 3-day retreat.
How much time do I need to devote to the training?
A: Between class time, homework and optional buddy coaching time, you can expect do devote anywhere between 5-10 hours per MONTH (we meet for class most weeks, but not every week). Even the busiest of participants have shared that they have been able to complete the program and move at a pace that is right for them.
Do I need to attend the trainings live?
A: While I do encourage everyone to make as many training calls as you can live, I understand that this isn’t always possible. We have certainly had very satisfied participants successfully complete the program and get certified who have listened to the recordings of each training. Our training calls will take place on Wednesdays from 1:00 – 2:30pm EST, and recordings will be available that evening.
I’m having trouble filling my coaching practice. Should I wait till I am full to do this training?
A: The honest answer to this is that it depends. If you are going to use this training to hide behind, and not take active action steps to attract clients into your business during our 10-month together, then this is not the place for you right now.
But here is what is much more likely to happen, based on what I've observed in this training in the past: I have had quite a number of women who were having trouble filling their client roster participate. And as a result of participating, clients started rolling in.
How come? Because their participation in our training creatd a ton more confidence in their skills, which led to a ton more clarity & inspiration to create powerful & effective marketing materials, as well as excited motivation to outreach and be seen.
If you sense you need more support & instruction in putting your marketing together, as part of your bonuses for this program, you’ll receive a FULL 30-hour homestudy with 12 modules & worksheets on how to create marketing that is fully aligned with the depth of your work, as well as an additional 20 hours of training and coaching specifically on marketing and business building.
I’m not a coach. I am [massage therapist, yoga instructor, real estate broker, fill in the blank here]. Is this training for me?
A: YES, YES, YES!!!! If you are in the business of creating client transformations, then you need coaching skills.
I’m seriously considering registering, but I’d love to have a call to make sure it’s for me. Is that possible?
A: Absolutely! I totally understand wanting to have a connection and ask questions, and see if this is the right training for you. If you’d like to set up a call, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get you set up right away!
HERE’S WHAT I WANT FOR YOU:
More than anything, I want for you to finally leave all of your self-doubt behind. I want you to know in your heart and soul that you are a Sacred Catalyst who makes massive impact on the people you serve. I want you to create the most amazing results for you clients and audiences so that first and foremost YOU feel fantastic about the work you do, and then from there so that you create a community of raving fans who buy from you over and over and over again, and who tell everyone they know about you.
I want you to stand as the leader in the room & in your sessions, in your full power, and to activate the power inside of every person you reach.
