Passion Search Training

Using constructivist and narrative approaches, Passion Search uncovers the hidden clues to each person’s purpose in life, and helps “hear” it for themselves, through both the counselor one-on-one sessions and the facilitator and their fellow participants in small group settings. Trainees will learn to listen intuitively, offering useful, structured feedback. Drawn from the work of Richards Bolles, Barbara Sher, John Crystal, Frederic Hudson, and more…Passion Search integrates the best of holistic, person-centered approaches and perspectives.

Facilitated by Centerpoint’s Founder, Carol Vecchio, you will learn to help individual clients and groups access and understand their essential selves through intuition and clue gathering, then to clarify a vision of the future that integrates their passion and purpose in life. This 4-day, 30-hour training program costs $1695 and includes all breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Lodging is available for a reduced fee on the Talaris World Campus where Centerpoint is located. Or you can lodge elsewhere upon your preference.

Carol Vecchio is insightful and a great role model/mentor for me. I feel so fortunate to have her as my coach and colleague. Some of the gifts I have received from working with Carol have been the further honing of my listening skills and intuition. Her meaningful, uplifting and specific feedback is very inspirational and supportive. I highly recommend her training and coaching whether you are a new or experienced career counselor.
