Join us online for two days of interactive workshops delivered by expert members of the GCA community. We will be exploring a wide range of themes, including topics you wouldn’t find at any other coaching conference.

Our overarching theme is to help you have a fantastic and productive 2021 for your coaching practice.

Your event provocateurs are Chris Cooper and Pete Simmonds, who throughout the two days will inspire you to explore new ideas and concepts to enhance your coaching success.

All sessions can be booked individually by GCA members, attendees of the International Gay Coaches Conference and other gay men coaches new to our community. The conference is available to book free of charge as a fundraiser for the host of our annual in person conference, Easton Mountain.

Reclaiming Your Emotions & Your Body: Resilience Practices for Coach & Client

with Peter Godard & Mona Khan

Resilience is our innate ability to recover from challenges or difficulties. Our minds, bodies and spirits are naturally resilient and resourceful. Yet, many of us--coaches and clients alike--operate regularly from a place of depletion, disconnection, and the absence of joy.


In this experiential workshop, we’ll explore together:

  • What’s up with that? &
  • What can we do about it for ourselves and for our clients?

Participants will walk away with tools for continuing to reconnect with their own resilience and for supporting clients to do the same. Together, we’ll focus on accessing the wisdom of the soma (our full mind-body-spirit) for reconnecting to a felt sense of wholeness and wellbeing. We’ll also look at the natural world, our stories, our identities, and our lineages (the people we claim and/or the people we come from) as sources of resilience.
