Something I started in 2022 has become my absolute favorite way to work with coaching clients, what I’ve been referring to as the Wisdom Immersion: an in-person coaching immersion with me in Oakland, California – where we go deep into shifting your foundations for how you see and engage with life. As a part of a committed coaching container, this Immersion creates a deep foundation for the rest of our work together.
If you’ve experienced a coaching session with me or attended any of my Insight Salons you might have an idea of the understanding that I’m coming from. The Immersion isn’t about concepts – it’s about transformation. There’s no curriculum: the purpose isn’t to teach anything, but to create an experience where you get to see something so deeply for yourself that your life will never be the same.
Here are some reflections from clients on their Immersion:
Something beyond concepts clicked for me. I saw, felt and experienced something – you might call it wisdom, innate well-being, the Tao.
I let a part of myself die. The one who was looking for something outside of him to complete him. I let a new part of me be born.
I’m a significantly better partner, coach, and man that I was before the Immersion. I’m experiencing all of life to be more simple, easy, fun, light, potent and miraculous. Michael helped me get, in an embodied sense, that this is my natural state.
In 10+ years of transformational work, this was hands down the peak experience.
Since the Immersion, that feeling, that awareness continues to clarify, which literally makes everything easier, better. In a very practical sense, that also means I’m experiencing *way* less stress, resistance, and friction.
