I had been listening to Dr. Zach Bush for the past few years and I knew I wanted to learn more about what he had to share through this Journey of Intrinsic Health. Never before have I heard someone put together and disseminate the path we each can take to truly live our best lives through body, mind, and spirit. The incredible JOIH Coaches facilitating this training have created a truly supportive and enriching coaching experience. To be in community with others who are so invested in changing their own lives in order to better the world is just amazing and has truly changed my life!

This transformational journey is a (re)discovery of a treasure chest of child-like curiosity, joy, beauty, laughter, tears, love, self-discovery, imagination and vitality with an extraordinary community holding your hand, inspiring and supporting growth in all areas of life.

I almost didn't sign up for the Coaches Journey of Intrinsic Health because I wasn't sure I needed another coaching intensive training, but I was so wrong. This coach's training gets you hands-on not just with 1:1 coaching but also with a group, which has been such a powerful experience for me. I'm constantly learning new ideas and concepts about coaching and health and our connection to the world. Moving through the Coaches Journey of Intrinsic Health has invited me into more awe and abundance into the work I do and into my everyday life.

The Coaches Journey offers the best of both worlds: a chance to experience the life-changing, mind-expanding Journey of Intrinsic Health for yourself and an invitation to elevate and refine the way you coach in a community like no other. At a time of so much uncertainty, separation, and chaos in the world, the Coaches Journey was an immediate yes for me. A chance to feel a part of the co-creation of a more beautiful now -- and tomorrow. If you dare to imagine a thriving, regenerative life of growth, transformation, and healing, you will love every minute of the Coaches Journey.
