I’m Christi Byerly, MCC, Director of Education & CEO of Awaken Coach Institute.

When I'm with someone who is congruent within themselves, and who has expert listening skills, I can grow and change and thrive. I feel so much more relaxed, known and loved. I wish that everyone around me had those skills – and we need them now more than ever.

I've been through hundreds of hours of coach training, and I wish that someone had just started out with the deep stuff right away. At the beginning, I learned a lot about action, goals, progress, success – and there's nothing wrong with that. Learning those skills did help me and my career. But I wish someone had embodied spiritual and identity alignment, so that my goals had more meaning, and my actions were deeply engrained and sustainable. It's taken me more than ten years to put the pieces together.

I feel most alive when I'm passing along the universal principles that have been transformational in my own life. The principles that allowed me to forgive, to see myself and others clearly, to be true to myself and my values, and to love beyond what I thought possible.

I want that so badly for you! And for us to have a big ripple effect together.

That's why I founded Awaken Coach Institute – welcome!

Our coach training is one of a kind.

Here's what sets Awaken Coach Institute apart from other coach training providers.

Our programs are for loving, brave people who are seeking spiritual alignment, belonging and bravery – not just a coaching credential.

Our programs are for the few, the daring, the ones who long to be more. Our courses go deeper than any other coaching course you will have done.

Every person who enrolls in our programs becomes part of building a world where self-compassion and empathy are the norm. Together, we all seek to become braver, more loving humans. 

Our teaching faculty are carefully chosen because they care deeply about creating a cohesive world which starts with depth of presence, solid connection to your values, and alignment between your spirituality and your actions.

If you're looking for deep-seated transformation, and not "just another certification", this is the course for you.

We accept only TWELVE students per cohort, because we want our students to have a personalized, expansive experience. We care deeply about you, and want to honor your presence with our undivided attention.

What's more, your Awaken certification never expires – meaning you don't have to apply for your ICF credential right away, you can take as long as you need, or choose to apply later down the line.

Awaken Coach Institute exists to make the world a braver and more loving place.

We train coaches to listen at depth, to awaken to the power of their own presence, and to be more loving than they've ever been before.

We equip and empower our coaches to be an example of what’s possible in every area of their lives — both personally and professionally.

Do you want to become a braver, more compassionate leader?

    Deborah Ingersoll , Culture Builder - Coach - Systems Thinker

  • Awaken Coach Institute

    I have loved the training so far. I have really applied the material to my daily interactions and to my pro bono coaching sessions and I am growing. It has been a wonderful introspective journey so far. I am seeing things about myself that need to be adjusted in terms of communication style and I love that.

    Julie Alexander , Leadership & Executive Coach

  • Awaken Coach Institute

    I am lighter, kinder, and more accessible to my friends and family. As I continue to work on myself and put into practice what I am learning, especially during client sessions, I feel the difference in my disposition and my confidence is back. My clients are responding so positively and are grateful for this opportunity to share and have someone to listen to them.

    Louise Kibugi , Planning & Management - ICF-credentialed Coach - Clarity4D Business Partner

  • Awaken Coach Institute

    From the first moment I saw the website, and I read the write up, I had a great feeling that Awaken Coach Institute was the school I was being called to. What really solidified everything was the question Christi asked: do you promise to love and accept each person regardless of their background, beliefs, etc. When she asked that I knew it was the course I needed to take.

    Alvin Baldovino , Life Purpose Coach - Founder of Lakbay Sacred Journeys

  • Awaken Coach Institute

    I am grateful for all the insights and learnings I have had so far from this training. I feel I am more aware about myself and others and the need for me to connect with them by being present and also allowing myself to have a teachable spirit
