If there is one skill that will allow you to re-invent yourself, effortlessly offer your products and services, create powerful partnerships and inspire tens of thousands of people... it's Embodied Speaking.
The Embodied Speaking 8 Week Coaching & Mentoring Program is your opportunity to raise your public speaking game and multiply your impact in the world. It is a 7-Week Online Course with Weekly Content combined with follow-up coaching plus a Week of Live Mentoring at our own dedicated venue equipped and setup for stage work and video recording.
The program is open to just 18 participants and every single participant will be directly and personally coached on crafting an authentic and effective message and presentation delivered from stage and directly to camera that can be used on your website.
The program is facilitated by Christian Pankhurst and Daniel Wagner, two coaches and mentors who not only have experience in teaching the skills of embodiment and speaking, but have also spent over twenty years of their professional life in the trenches honing their own skills and craft of presenting from stage and to camera.
The program also offers the opportunity for people to participate as an online student with access to the same content and teaching but without the personalised coaching, making it home-study course. This version of the program also gives access to the live week via live streaming to maximise the learning experience.
Here are some of the program highlights that we believe make this experience unique...
Embodied Speaking is a combination of stage craft, public speaking skills and embodiment training that will allow you to come across confidently, relaxed and deeply connected to your heart while delivering impactful messages that engage with and touch your audience.
It is the gift to speak freely and in a deeply engaging way without scripts or rigid structures.
An Embodied Speaker can share any message to any size audience from a relaxed and connected place.
Unlike most speaking trainings that create performers, Embodied Speaking focuses on the authentic sharing of your message.
We believe that the skill of Embodied Speaking is a necessary evolution for you as a presenter, public speaker or trainer to adapt to the increasing sensitivity of audiences worldwide to the outdated paradigm of influence via inflation, manipulation and hype.
When we designed the program, we clearly defined the types of people that we believe this training is ideally suited for.
Christian Pankhurst is the founder of Heart iQ and is a world leading expert in group dynamics & conscious communication.
Christian Pankhurst is a world leading expert in group dynamics, conscious communication, and the art of circle facilitation. Christian is a master conductor of the collective wisdom that emerges when resonant hearts come together, and his piercing clarity lovingly cuts through bullshit while he holds a space of unconditional love for what wants to emerge in the now.
Christian teaches how to tap into the power of the collective wisdom or 'field' so facilitators learn how to heal themselves and others simultaneously through a process that is embodied and joyful rather than heady and focused on solving problems.
Christian's unique capacity to translate complex group dynamics into simple, clear and practical insights is the reason why so many seek him out to get trained in the art of small and large group facilitation.
Christian started facilitating groups in 2002 after graduating as a Chiropractor from the AECC in the U.K. His speciality is using a group’s wisdom and energy to open up gateways of transformation that are simply not available in an individual or one-on-one practice.
In 2008, Christian entered and won the Britain's Next Top Coach Competition, receiving 52% of the votes from over 90 countries around the world. He is the best-selling author of Insights To Intimacy - Why Relationships Fail and How To Make Them Work, and is the co-founder of New Eden, a centre for those wishing to grow, co-create and awaken together in community.
The Embodied Speaking Coaching & Mentoring program is the only public speaking training in the world that uses Heart iQ technology and circle work. Listen to Christian explain how circle work can empower you to speak more authentically in the video below.
Daniel Wagner is a keynote speaker on the future of business and humanity and an expert in authentic marketing and brand activation
From my early childhood in Austria, I was driven by a desire for liberation, freedom and fulfilment. In my early twenties I was drawn to the wisdom of hinduism and started to follow an Indian guru. I lived for many years in various communities focusing on my personal development and path of enlightenment and moved to the UK with my wife and young son when I was 28.
After a series of unfulfilling and underpaid jobs, I started my first successful online business in 2005 and soon became one of the UK's most popular internet marketing teachers and coaches, speaking on many stages sharing my story. I became an expert in online and offline marketing, personal brand activation and public speaking.
I learned from and studied with many of the world’s leading companies and teachers and developed my own methods and approaches to marketing, communication and sharing your message with audiences of any size.
I believe that the biggest breakthroughs and advances of the 21st century will not come from technology, but from a shift in human consciousness. I’m fascinated and curious about the future of business and humanity and how authenticity and truth can become the norm and pillars of our personal and working relationships.
Being able to share what is in your heart so that people ‘get you’ is not only relevant for change makers and business leaders, I believe it’s a key ingredient to healthy relationships and a fulfilled life.
The 7 week online home study program is a step-by-step guide and education using a proven framework and structure for your talk. It will support you in creating all parts of your talk or presentation. From how to use your experience to elicit authority, how to use your client success stories, how to pick the relevant part of your life's story to support your message and more...
Updates from the weekly learning and progress will be shared in our live online coaching calls. The 18 participants of the Full Mentoring Package will receive coaching and guidance from both mentors. If you are one of our online students, you'll be able to watch and learn from the case studies and apply the learnings and insights to your own work.
The 7 Day Live Retreat is where you'll be joining your group and your mentors and start to bring your prepared talk to the stage and to the camera. Daily sessions on stage, witnessed by your peers and the mentors and the daily opportunity to present to camera will give you a chance to practice and improve while also learning from your peers. There will also be Heart IQ Circle sessions to help you fully embody your message.
Working together in the pristine surroundings of New Eden is only part of the deal. The fact that we will all be staying at the same venue and will be sharing healthy and nutritious food and meal times is another key ingredient to creating deep connection, bonding and trust to help us bring forth our best work. We cater for special food requirements and private room upgrades are available.
New Eden - the venue of the live week - is equipped with multiple high definition cameras and a stage including professional lighting to allow us to record your talks and presentations. You will also be able to walk away with recordings of your final presentation from stage and your message to video. We even offer an editing service for a small fee should you wish to add titles, music and transitions, etc.
The live week will be intense and rich in content and learning. To make sure you can get the most out of the feedback, coaching and learn from your own and your peers' progression, all main sessions are recorded and will be available in the community for you to watch and access. The event recordings are also available for our Online Package students.
To maximise the benefit from the 8 week program, we've created a private community for you to communicate with and receive support from your peers and your mentors. This is not your run-of-the-mill Facebook group, but a professional private network to facilitate a safe environment to share, comment and help each other make the most from your investment in the program long-term
We know that many of our participants would love to bring their business or life partner to the program to benefit from the learning and share the experience. To make this decision easier, we decided to offer the second person's investment at a 50% discount. It's important to note that you will be sharing the coaching and mentoring time and your time on stage as you see fit.
Listen to past graduates as they share their experience in English, Dutch and German.

Absolutely. It’s actually perfect as you have a lot less of ‘unlearning’ to do than experienced participants and it’s a great way to fast track your learning by going through a structured course and have a week of practice with feedback and coaching.
Yes, we encourage it actually. It’ll be quite a challenge for you to report back and update them after the live event so if you can, bring them along. We even created a 50% discount for business or life partners, just be aware that it will mean you are sharing the time on stage and to camera between the two of you (any way that suits you) so you are in essence taken one of the 18 places together. If you want to bring a business or life partner, then please mention that in your application.
If you are bringing a business or life partner, then this is exactly what is gonna happen. Your coaching time on the online coaching and the stage time and time on camera during the live week are shared (or split) between the two of you.
We will be sending you the high definition recordings of both your final presentations from stage and to video, but they might benefit from some further edits like titles, transitions or a clean intro and outro (we call it top and tail). Should you wish to have the ‘full service’, then please let one of our team know and we can provide this for a small extra fee (depending on what you want).
Well, English is the teaching language and Christian and Daniel are sharing their feedback in English. We had some German and Dutch speakers at our last retreats and it’s possible to translate your talk and do your final presentation in your mother tongue, but to receive feedback you will be presenting and sharing in English.
Yes, you can present and record your final presentation in your native language, but on the coaching calls and during the live week we need you to present in English so that we can give you feedback on language and structure.
Yes, absolutely. We have a ‘fly on the wall’ online version that will get you access to the same coaching content (the 7 week online program) and live streaming access during the live week. With this option we will not be able to receive coaching and mentoring from Christian and Daniel directly, but you will be learning from their feedback as you watch the 18 live students of the program.
Yes, all main teaching sessions are recorded in high definition and are made available to you via the private community for your convenience.
if you are deciding to invest in the full package and be one of the 18 participants of the event, then every week’s session is valuable as you have allocated coaching and feedback time every week. But we understand that life just might get in the way. So don’t worry if you miss a session or two, as all the calls are recorded and made available to you in the private community. If you are on online participant, then you’ll miss the buzz of the live feeling, but you too have access to the recordings.
That is correct. Our full package includes shared accommodation (it’s just two people per room) and you can upgrade your room on request. Please specify this when you sign up.
We believe that especially as an experienced speaker or presenter you will be able to tweak and make valuable adjustments. If you watch some of our testimonial videos, you’ll notice that many of our participants have many years of experience and absolutely loved the coaching and mentoring they received.
Most likely yes. One of Christian’s gifts and his expertise is to find and help release the hidden blocks and contractions that might cause you to ‘freeze’ in front of the camera or on stage.
Absolutely. The 8 week program is designed to help you speak freely and without notes or scripts. We start with simple and proven structures and frameworks and will practice to move freely within them.
If, for whatever reason, you feel at the end of the program (even after you attended the live week) that you are not 100% delighted and satisfied, we will refund you the whole tuition fee. Just let us know at the end of the program.
No. You don’t have to be a techie to make the most of this 8 week coaching and mentoring program. The fact you are reading this answer on your computer or phone is all the tech skills you need. Our online program is just as easy to access as your facebook account or your email.
Absolutely. Part of the 7 week online coaching program in preparation for the live week is supporting every delegate in finding their message and show them how to deliver it to camera and from stage.
Yes. It’s one of the modules in the 7 week preparation coaching part that will help you get clear on which idea or message to go with. And - once you know the frameworks and the ‘formula’, you can apply it to any message should you want to after the live week.
Absolutely. Many people are sharing a vision or passion from stage and to camera without having anything to sell or offer. We will though, as part of the 7 week online coaching program go through some simple ways how to create your own online products and services, even if you have never done that before.
Well even if you end up just creating videos, the work on stage will be very valuable to stretch your comfort zone and practice your embodiment skills.
The program is designed to support you in both skills, and we believe that even if you are mainly aiming to share your message from stages, the skill to speak to camera (could be for interviews, TV or else) is a very valuable additional skill.
