The Conscious Relationship Training
Before I tell you more, I‘d like to share a few brief words about who I am and why I created this Training:
My name is Marc David, and I’m the Founder and lead faculty member of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I’m a teacher and consultant in Eating Psychology and the author of the classic, bestselling books Nourishing Wisdom and The Slow Down Diet, which introduced the world to a whole new approach to food, body and health.
For over three decades, I’ve done my best to be an innovator in eating psychology and nutrition and to make a real difference in people’s lives. Our organization literally reaches millions of people every week. My work has been featured on CNN and NBC, and in The New York Times, Chicago Times, McCall’s, Glamour, Elle, Yoga Journal, WebMD, and hundreds more publications. My books have been translated into over 10 languages. I’ve presented at a long list of professional settings, including Harvard University, the Institute for Functional Medicine, and the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine.
I’ve mentored many of the luminaries in the fields of nutrition and natural medicine. And I’ve personally logged thousands of hours working with people over the last 30 years in a full range of eating and emotional challenges.
But here’s the thing:
Over the years, I’ve noticed again and again how so many of the challenges we face with food and body are intimately linked to relationship. I’ve seen how a great percentage of those with concerns around health, weight, food, fitness and personal development finally found a breakthrough or saw lasting change, but only after they were able to address their relationship challenges in a clear and skillful way.
So, in order to help my clients reach this point of transformation more quickly and efficiently, I immersed myself in the study of conflict resolution, communication styles, masculine and feminine psychology, marriage and family counseling, and family constellation therapy, and I studied the work of so many of the major relationship experts - and many of the lesser known ones as well.
And then I took the “greatest hits” from each, and put them together in one condensed, easy-to-follow Training.
So you get to benefit from someone who’s been a bit obsessed and plenty inspired, both personally and professionally, when it comes to effectively helping people with their relationship concerns…
In my quest to find the best insights from each expert and approach, I discovered what I believe is THE #1 most important key ingredient to help people with their relationship concerns.
This ingredient, when present, positions you and your clients for the best outcomes possible. With it, there’s all kinds of hope. Without it, far too many people fail. And that ingredient is simply this:
Allow me to explain…
Consciousness means a higher level of awareness. It means noticing and taking the higher ground. It means waking up to a greater level of maturity and character. It means that there’s a place we can aspire to inside ourselves, where we can make effective choices that we can trust. Consciousness is where the answers to life’s greatest challenges can be found.
And the best part is, consciousness is something that can be learned. It’s something that literally everyone can access - especially if they have the help of a trusted mentor, guide, or coach.
We have a powerful opportunity before us. With the great interest that so many people have around relationship and the suffering and confusion that so many are experiencing in this area, with the global need for a wise and clear approach, and with the rising demand for skilled coaches, you can now participate in a Training that gives you the tools to make a real difference AND earn some extra income.
The Conscious Relationship Training will give you what you need to feel confident about working with your clients in these areas. You’ll have a new outlook on your practice, your clients can experience real, sustainable transformation, and you’ll feel uplifted knowing that you’re doing good work in the world.
HOW DOES THE TRAINING WORK?
The Conscious Relationship Training is a 5 month, information-rich online program. It consists of 20 weekly sessions and includes audio presentations, notes, transcripts, an online forum, live Q&A teleclasses, and some great bonus material.
It’s designed specifically for coaches, practitioners and helping professionals who would like to expand their practice by learning the skills and tools to coach clients around the most common relationship challenges.
Convenient Distance-Learning Format
You can take this Training with you wherever you go. Whether you’re traveling, have a full-time career, are a busy parent, or you’re in a life transition, the Training is designed to easily fit your lifestyle. Access the material on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. All you need is an Internet connection! We’ve created a user-friendly online experience that makes learning enjoyable.

Come back to material you want to spend extra time with, and go deeper into the learning experience. Many of our students share that they listen to classes again whenever they need a refresher or extra inspiration.
Powerfully Tap into Your Gifts as a Helping Professional
It’s a special feeling to know that you’re accessing your deepest inborn gifts and using them to make the world a better place. I’d love for you to have that experience. And we don’t take a “cookie cutter” approach to training coaches. We want you to discover your unique style and talents as a helping professional. The Training is designed to bring out the best in you and give you a new sense of confidence when working with clients.
Enjoy a Teaching Style that’s Results Oriented
In the Conscious Relationship Training, you’ll learn distinctions around relationship that so many of your clients will be fascinated by. The approach we take is fresh and contemporary. You’ll learn practitioner tools and skills for transforming relationship challenges, as well as techniques that partners can use to create better communication and connection.
Curated Recommended Reading List
Learn from an eclectic and highly informative collection of books written by some of the most respected leaders in relationship and personal development. The optional reading list is a great support for the learning process.

Live Q&A Tele-Classes
This is a great opportunity to interact directly with me and get your questions answered throughout the Training. I love connecting with each of you and making sure you get the support you need.

Private Online Community
You can choose to participate in our private online forum where you can engage with fellow students and Institute staff around Training content. This is a great way to connect with the Institute team and your colleagues around the world, receive support and inspiration, and grow your professional network...
Enhance Your Earning Power
We live in a time when meaningful work is so important. And if you’re any kind of helping professional, you understand the great feeling of being financially rewarded for serving others in a way truly that makes a difference. This Training is an ideal professional development opportunity for already existing coaches and practitioners who want to add a new skillset that can expand their offerings and create more value in their practice.
Transform Your Own Relationship
It’s hard to take a Training like this and not learn something that will impact you personally. As you use the material to work on yourself and explore your own experiences in relationship, you’ll be better equipped to deliver compassionate, meaningful coaching to your clients. So often, the best practitioners are those who have “been there” themselves. You don’t need to be perfect to help others – you simply need to have skill, care, and be one step ahead.
The Conscious Relationship Training is founded upon a unique, practical, and eye-opening blend of coaching skills, cultural studies, transformational disciplines, mind body science, conflict skills, results driven strategies and actionable techniques. We believe in an approach that helps you apply your knowledge in the real world, and inspired by the best insights that personal development and psychology has to offer.
Our curriculum is designed to help you help your clients with the most common relationship challenges. This includes concerns around communication, intimacy, arguing, fighting, dating, breaking up, transitions, and the unique challenges facing women, men, and different age groups.
The focus of this Training is on teaching you how to help your client do their own inner work, by offering them new ideas, tools and skills that they can bring into their relationship life. It won’t make you a couples therapist, which is a specialized discipline requiring years of study. Rather, you’ll learn to work one on one with clients who want to heal, shift, or simply revitalize the way they do relationship, and you’ll gain a powerful set of coaching strategies to help them get where they want to go.
Some of the topics covered in the Training include:

So if you’re inspired to work with clients around relationship concerns but feel you need more skills, confidence, and a deeper understanding, then this is the Training for you...
Hear from Marc's Students
I felt like I could listen to Marc talk forever. In areas I'd not yet excavated in full or at all, the layers Marc uncovered were mind blowing, and earth shattering. I learned language for feelings and experiences that before had no name. I’ve gained a treasure chest full of nuggets of wisdom applicable in my professional interactions as well as personal. My relating to others, and relating to myself in my life has become deeper than I thought possible. My forgiveness, wells deeper. My love for my life... words cannot describe.
~ Jenna C. Johnson
Marc talks straight from the heart and has a fantastic sense of humour that really resonates and helps you to relate to the material. The Facebook group was truly insightful and the support team were so helpful, warm and welcoming! Thank you so much for helping me to realize my gift and purpose in the world!
~ Claudia Knight
I'll never forget the first time I heard Marc David speak. He spoke with such passion and deep understanding. I was blown away by the amount of wisdom and deep insight that this man, Marc David, has absorbed through his practice and life experiences.
~ Patrick West
Marc David’s calming, caring voice and words of wisdom filled my entire being with love, understanding and acceptance! No one has ever talked to me like this!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! Your wisdom has grounded me and made me focus on what is truly important in life. We are all special, unique and precious human beings on planet earth to enjoy our journey by being grateful; to embrace "love of self" and share love with others.
~ Kari Messner
The format of the program worked well for me. I loved being able to listen to the audios at my convenience. Marc, your words of wisdom are priceless. But, honestly, the most transformation arose from the journaling exercises. I was forced to dig deep. This is where I found the most growth and opportunities to evolve.
~ Lori Lippert
I will always remember Marc's passion for the teaching, his care to ensure essential information was repeated, the wisdom of his case studies, and his good humor in relaxing into the material. As a spiritual counselor, I deeply appreciate Marc’s emphasis on soul lessons.
~ Stephen Dynako
These are just a few of the many ways you can put this education to great use:
We set out to create a Training that would be time efficient, cost sensitive, high value, and deliver as much actionable content as possible, while staying true to the special and exquisite nature of human relationship. And we also wanted to create a holistic Training that incorporates a true mind, body, heart and soul approach to this beautifully complex topic.
So much of what’s out there when it comes to professional online relationship programs focuses on “behavior change.” This approach is quite limited, as we humans are far more than a collection of behaviors. We’ve got a heart, we’ve got feelings, we have beliefs, we have a rich and complex history, and so many of us have a connection to a higher power. The Conscious Relationship Training blends these together in an approach that empowers you to help your clients in a meaningful way.
What’s more, this Training sees the challenges that come up in a relationship not as an indication that things are broken and need to fixed, but as a healthy sign that growth, learning and discovery are ready to happen.
More distinguishing features of the Training:
When it comes to working with relationships, many people go through years of schooling to learn how to become a psychologist, counselor, or clinical social worker. That’s because it’s a deep and complex topic. So while it’s impossible to cram 4-6 years of higher education into a 5 month online program, what is possible is to take many of the greatest hits from various systems and condense them into an educational program that’s designed to deliver the most useful and relevant information in the shortest amount of time.

Human beings are creatures of relationship, and there’s just no way around it. We need each other, we desire each other, and in many ways, we become better people because of our significant relationships.
But we also know that the relationship journey is not always so easy, and that’s why we need help.
What’s fascinating is that the majority of relationship advice and support that most people get comes from friends and family. Chances are, you’ve likely been a “relationship coach” to many of the people closest to you. And they’ve likely done the same for you.
And that gives us a window into the beauty of the coaching experience.
One doesn’t need to be a lifelong relationship professional to help people in this area. Each one of us comes with a unique wisdom, our own life experience, and some valuable lessons and insights that we’ve learned from our own relationship journey.
This Training will help you turbocharge your already existing relationship knowledge with the tools and distinctions you need to serve others in a skillful, meaningful and powerful way.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have!
And I look forward to meeting you in the Training….
My warmest regards,
Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating
