NBC-HWC Exam Prep and Content Review Class

Dates:  Saturdays, June 20, July 18, August 22, September 19, 2020

Times: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm EST

This is an engaging NBC-HWC Exam Prep and Content Review Class with Tijen Genco on how this can assist you in preparation for the NBC-HWC Exam. As a certified Health and Wellness coach and coach trainer, Tijen shares her experience with the participants in a helpful way to prepare them for the content and the way the questions are assessing your knowledge as it applies to the situations presented. Tijen will highlight the Blueprint for the exam, additional resources recommended by the NBC-HWC and assist individuals interested in taking the National Board Credentialing Exam in sometime during 2020 to be prepared with more confidence. This review course is designed to assist all students who have completed their Coaching education regardless of when or where they took the courses. Although this course is designed to help the students prepare for the NBC-HWC exam, it is a helpful course for any coach desiring to have an overview of the coaching related content such as Ethics and Legal, as well as Evidence Based Coaching Methodologies. This course is an exam prep course and, of course, does not count toward Health and Wellness certification.

 

What are the participants saying:

 

“Tijen is a beyond amazing mentor coach and teacher. Her exam prep course is incredible! She has a way of condensing, simplifying and explaining the information in a way that makes it easier to learn, process, integrate and remember. The information is presented, discussed, clarified and then we are given case studies. The case studies are extremely helpful and Tijen works with us and teaches us what information to extract from the case studies using the different coaching modalities, biometrics, health information etc. to be able to arrive at the right conclusion and answer. It not only offers and reviews the information but teaches how to interpret and apply that knowledge. It prepares our brain to analyze and process the information in the way we need to do it during the exam. I cannot recommend this course enough!!” —Marta Neimark, Health and Wellness Coach

Whose fear is it anyway?

When we are on the verge of a deep expansion of our human spiritual boundaries, it is often that we experience great resistance and fear to inform the nervous system that our boundaries about to expand. The way we process this information then defines our journey towards expansion. If we interpret the information as a threat, we will tighten, restrict and limit ourselves. Or for example, if we interpret as exciting new experience, we may find thrill and joy in the new discovery. Whatever challenges our existing way of life, whatever we know will profoundly change us, often processed more terrifying than inviting. So then one of the key ingredients in the processing becomes whether we take the change as if being enforced on us or we are being invited to it.

We feel as if between the two worlds. One that we know how to be in, that we mastered it, that is familiar, and the one that we have no idea how to be in…One feels worn out and the other one we haven’t even tried yet but we have preconceived notions about it.

Journey to courage often require passing through the corridor of fearsome entities in order to come to the center of the heart and wisdom. When you pass through the corridor of fearsome entities, you get to the grand prize of more opening in the heart center, allowing more light to come to you and through you. But how do you get there… And open our heart feels fear-full for many despite the fact it is a wonderful prize to have. You will leave what you are accustomed to while your heart opens; your relationships change, your presence change, your coordinates change. You no longer behave out of fear but love, compassion, peace and care. That certainly affects everything around you. How can one handle that? How do you size the new and improved version of you before embody it? As it is often non-returnable…

May be then, before one heads on to the corridor of fearsome entities, one can do an inventory of the gift and skills that they possess to assess their readiness level of the new version of the self to understand they have what it takes already.

Another thing might be helpful is to notice the connections made through fear. Often, the energy offered through these connections becomes stronger and enhances your fear experience. It becomes a very difficult task to assess how much of the fear you are experiencing is “truly” yours versus offered to you collectively by others…The best thing to do in this case to start noticing, whether these exchanges are adding to your fear or helping you diminish it. If the connection is additive, then you may have a choice to close the gates to their corridors of fearful entities…

Our experiences can be quite challenging. In the end, what makes the difference is the way we choose to respond to them. We can react through fear or from a centered place of cognitive and conscious choice making. These two pathways may generate very distinctive results in the way we create our new version of being.

What will you choose?

If you are looking for extra support as you loosen the connections made through fear, and enhance your ability to stay centered, you may find my upcoming guided meditation session helpful.

May your journey into the new be filled with courage and conscious choice making for benefit of all.

Namaste,

Tijen Genco, MS, MCC, NBC-HWC, MBB, E-RYT200

A fierce meeting place…

Broken and Blooming

I met with this tree during my morning walk this morning. First thought came to my mind was “look at this incredible being, it is broken yet it continues to bloom…” I stopped to take the picture of it and its magnificence towards wanting to contribute and create regardless of its situation…I wonder what is different in us that in most cases, when we go through the challenges of life the first thing we give up is our creativity and contribution. Instead of taking our role in society with our “broken-ness”, we resort to feeling of being less, bitter, sad or whatever it might be, and retract…

I then thought about the word “heart-broken” in English. It feels as though when we are hurt, our hearts are not physically broken but rather scarred. There is an interruption of the flow of blood and life source through the scar tissue. That I believe we interpret as “broken-ness”. More of these scar tissues being held in the heart more parts of the heart become inaccessible to the natural flow of grace. It is in our perseverance, compassion, forgiveness and love that we can massage the scar tissue and bring it back to life with the wisdom and richness that comes through that experience.

Compassion can be defined as for quality that is enabling us to stay within the circumstances otherwise, we would run away from. Resilience can be achieved by being able to stay when we are challenged and engage the circumstance with our curiosity. This pathway allows us capacity to stay close to the scar tissue. I recommend that observing the broken-ness like a masterpiece that you have created and learn to appreciate its beauty. Some of them may appear to you as an odd art piece that you have no interest in looking at, even to an extent detest; some of them you may understand easier. Eventually you may learn to love and adore these “Art Gallery of Scar Tissues” of yours if you manage to stay with them and observe them long enough. It is when you start to bloom once again with more endurance and resilience…

To support your journey into such resilience I am offering a Guided Meditation Session that you may find details of it here.

May you find courage to bloom in wholeheartedly no matter what you are experiencing…

Namaste,

Tijen Genco, MS, MCC, NBC-HWC, E-RYT200
