What people are saying about my workshops and trainings:
In the 30+ years of leading, taking, and exploring transformational workshops, I rarely meet someone who has the integrity, honesty, and perceptiveness as Michael McDonald. Michael is the only coach I know who has made a speciality out of the art of integration – incorporating lessons people learn from various modalities into the application of their daily lives in order to create true transformation. If you’ve had great experiences in various workshops, seminars, retreats, etc., but lose the spark as time passes, see Michael. He’ll be able to help you make sustainable shifts in your life with reinvigoration, joy, and inspiration.Sabrina Chaw
I also appreciate Michael’s ability to reframe things into a more loving viewpoint. His gentle guidance, clarity, and wisdom really did help me get to my own clarity and feel more confident to step into my power so to speak. He gave me permission, which I in turn gave myself, to get closer to my essence and closer to bringing that essence into full expression into the world.Deb Blum
Michael McDonald is a simplitician. Never heard of that word? Well, I bet you have experienced its opposite. Ever sit down to a book, podcast or go to a lecture and find yourself struggling to get the point or decipher the essential meaning? Your brain starts to drift as you think it might just be time to go get some chocolate? Michael IS the chocolate. He has a broad exposure to differing viewpoints in the study of human relating. His gift is condensing these down to very digestable nuggets that give the listener immediate access to understanding complex ideas. His use of language is subtle but clear so that you can “grok” it, but also find wisdom later as you muse over his statements. I find myself sharing his insights with friends and family and passing on the easy assimilation. I also delight in sharing that Michael is that rare bird, a truly caring human being.Miel Honey
What you offered is the heart of what matters to me – the chance to get to show up, naked, simple, and to speak our heart’s truth.Marina Smerling
Michael’s work is characteristic and unique to me for the precision and nuance he brings to the most personal of processes you are going through, embracing it with tons of love and yet nourishing and fostering constructive change from that basic source of self-acceptance.
Michael is a coach that brings so much wit to a session that you will leave laughing about what seemed most dramatic in your life. Thus he has the amazing capacity to bring lightness to the hard work of self-transformation.Karen De Looze
As the former trainer at MaestroConference, I was really impressed with your ease with the platform. Loved how you walked people through the moves you were making so we knew exactly what was happening. Great job with content, structure, and your ease and smoothness of delivery.Adam Koren
