My name is Magali Peysha and I’m the founder of the Coaching Institute.
Where I train people in a methodology of coaching which embraces spiritual, creative and energy self-healing.
I’m also the author of the #1 best-selling book The Strategic Intervention Handbook, the bestselling relationship book Love Happier, and the Activation™ Method Workbook. My trainings have helped 1.5 million people to create greater meaning in their life.
Over the last 18 years I have personally trained over 20,000 Life Coaches at the certification level – that’s about 15% of the world’s certified coaches. Every week I lead groups through meditation and energy exercises, with 30,000 live meditation participants over the last two years.
Though I’m known primarily as a coach and teacher, it wasn’t always the case.
Before I started coaching eighteen years ago, I was a Yoga Teacher and Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist. I helped my clients to feel better emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I’d use the techniques of Ayurveda to help clients learn what would bring them greater balance.
What I found, again and again, was that my Ayurvedic clients may have started out wanting to improve a health problem, but our sessions needed to focus on the energy and emotional level before general wellness could balance.
Later, when I became a Life Coach, it became clear to me that both Ayurvedic counseling and Life Coaching were helpful on their own. However, when they were combined, they became even more powerful. I loved the clarity that Life Coaching brought, its ability to help clients create clear goals, plan small actions, and to use strategies that helped them find their creativity and purpose. And the framework of Ayurveda gave me tools for teaching clients practices they could use daily to repair and nourish their systems.
Then through daily meditation practice I had an Energy opening that transformed my life.
You see, I had been struggling with Energy Experiences for years. I would feel tingling heat, movements in my body that I didn’t understand. Whenever I meditated, there was a swirling sensation, sometimes around me or sometimes within me. At times it felt like I was floating. But when I’d ask a spiritual teacher what I should I do with this energy, I was told to ignore it that it was only an experience. This left me feeling that my meditation experience was wrong.
This did not keep me from meditating. I have a passion for meditation. And I kept studying, practicing daily, and seeking more wisdom. Finally one day I received the best advice of my life through a video q&a. Another woman was asking how to meditate when feeling this big swirling energy. The teacher explained to just be with that energy. Not try to change it but instead join it and allow whatever the experience was to be.
I tried that. And wow suddenly I was not fighting with the moment. My energy naturally settled and became more conscious and centered. Sometimes it would feel that the energy was teaching me, healing me from within. I started to fall in love with my meditation practice and with my own spirit. I found it easier and easier to sit in silence, to meditate when walking, when working, and even when thinking.
For over a year, I kept a separation between my energy meditation experiences and my professional life as a coaching teacher. But then a door opened, and everything came together.
I was on vacation in Hanalei Bay, Hawaii, thinking about how to show my coaching clients how to connect with their own energy. Then I stood up and let my body receive a teaching. It was a series of movements and emotional, creative exercises. This practice felt like it was given to me. The personal me who knew things stepped aside and allowed a sort of grace to take over. I named the practice 21 Journeys®. Because it is 21 unique journeys.
I refined them and began to teach them to groups. The results were incredible.
People were healing their own grief. Students from every faith were feeling more connected to their own presence. People were experiencing their ancestors and guides and empowering their higher self. The energy and emotional openings people experienced would continue for weeks afterwards. It was powerful!
Since then, I have developed over 50 unique Energy Coaching strategies which are used in coaching sessions with individuals and some are used as group strategies. I have been refining them in my daily coaching and teaching. And now I have taught them to over 70,000 participants.
