Mastery and Confidence are Yours

Principles and Practices of Transformative Coaching (PPTC) offers a unique blend of communication skills and coaching methodologies founded on universal spiritual principles.

PPTC gives you tools for intrapersonal and interpersonal awareness-raising, a deep grasp of the principles of effective coaching, and mastery of the skills and techniques of the professional coach.

Whether you want to have a thriving coaching practice or just show up more fully in your family, work, and community – PPTC is a powerful stepping stone to an empowered and purposeful life.

What People Around the World Have to Say

“The Satvatove coach training was very enriching for my development as a coach. The class experience, and the regular exchanges with other participants really made this a very practical way of learning. The combination of theory and practice was wonderful; for me personally, it was the best way to grow as a coach, to monitor how much I’m grasping and integrating the principles and skills. Thank you for your determination to give 100% to teach and guide us with so much care and integrity.”
Marlene Ehrhardt
“For me the coach training is not a training for a job, but a training to learn to live my life in a way that is inspiring and exciting, a training in which I learn to be the best person I can be – and touch others through my being. Another inspiration is the connection I sensed between the Satvatove approach to helping and the approach made by great spiritual personalities such as Francis of Assisi, Theresa of Avila, Jesus, persons who have always been a great example for me. By going through the coach training I get to learn and enter deeper into what I believe is our nature - we all have the potential to manifest qualities that contribute to making the world a better place, because those qualities are inside of each one of us. The coach training helps me to manifest the qualities I have inside and offer them to the world.”
Annette Bonomo
“Because of the incredible coaching skills I gained from Principles and Practices of Transformative Coaching, I’ve had the confidence to step up and establish my Life Coaching practice. Now I’m able to serve others with remarkable results doing something that is profoundly rewarding for me, and be well compensated financially for doing it.”
David Aycrigg
(New Zealand)

Your Instructor & The Satvatove Institute

David B. Wolf, Ph.D., has over 43 years of experience in diverse social and mental health service fields, including counselor training, medical social work, children and family counseling, executive coaching, spiritual life coaching, and developing and leading personal transformation seminars.

In the 1990s he began developing and conducting the

programs that became the Satvatove Institute seminars and coach training programs.

David has coached and counseled thousands of people, groups, and organizations.

He is the author of Relationships That Work: The Power of Conscious Living and The Power of Bhakti: Ancient Spiritual Science for the Modern Distracted Mind.

Our mission at Satvatove Institute is to spark a world-wide revolution in consciousness, by focusing on individual transformation.

As a leader in communication training, self-development, and coach training, we have successfully supported thousands of people in over 25 countries to fundamentally change their lives for the better and to take a stand for the transformation of others.

We believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience and each soul has access to the highest guidance within.

We believe in creating sacred space, within which we empower each other to connect with the essential qualities of the soul, live purposefully, and co-create a truly fulfilling life.

Satvatove helps leaders say yes to their highest purpose, show up big in life, and breakthrough anything holding them back.

We do this by offering intensive leadership and self-empowerment seminars, online Transformative Coach training, and individual coaching – all focused on the process of transformative communication, self-realization, and conscious living.


PPTC is accredited with the International Coach Federation (ICF) for 125 credit hours.

More from the Satvatove Coaching Community…

“The amount of care, support and nurturance I experienced throughout the program was a gift unsurpassed. All the energy and effort I put into the program I received a thousand-fold in return through unconditional support, constant care and compassionate challenge. I feel very fortunate and grateful for the opportunity this program and Satvatove has provided me with.”
Fayenen Lathrenwen
“The Satvatove Principles and Practices of Transformative Coaching training has been one of the most transformative experiences in my life. I started the training because I knew I wanted self growth to live my life more fully being authentically myself. Now through the training I have also found transformative life coaching as one of the main ways I want to continue to serve others in this life. If you are wanting training in any kind of self growth and/or communication then this course will be extremely helpful for your goals. The course is also one year long, two hours each week, with some homework in b/w sessions. This pace felt consistent in learning the practices yet doable. If you’re looking for a training that helps you understand the core of who you are and how to have more empathy for others then this is definitely the training you want to pick. I feel I have grown so much in just oneyear!”

Thank you for taking the time to help me with my experience!”
Marina Wilson

“This PPTC was something like the cherry on the top of the ice cream of the Satvatove experience, which for me has included powerful transformation in the forms of seminars, personal coaching, and a multi-month Life Mastery Program. I value very much your intuition and encouragement around Executive Coaching, and really felt like a fish swimming in water during the group coaching project.”

Sarah Thompson
(Pennsylvania, USA)
“I just want to express my gratitude for your being instrumental and supportive to my intrapersonal growth and self extension. I'm finding PPTC to be very valuable in my life right now. I'm experiencing a lot of synchronicity and increased awareness in many areas of my life, inner and outer, as they go hand-in-hand. So, a warm and grateful 'thank you' from me. I feel enthused to continue to walk the path of introspection and self correction, through the uncomfortable, difficult and scary alleyways, and across the tracks of inspiration, consciousness and light.”
