Mental Wellness Coach Certification – September Dates!

The Certified Mental Wellness Coach (CMWC) is a streamlined, focused, intense course spanning 16 hours of instruction in the role of diet and lifestyle factors in balancing the Microbiome-Gut-Heart-Brain-Axis for improved Mental Wellness and Mental Fitness.

We held our first CMWC course in Wisconsin at the end of April and our first “residential” classes in Plymouth MA in June, July and August – with great feedback about the content and the “workshop” format.

Our next course will be held September 22 – 25 in Plymouth MA – and the location will be our new “Mental Fitness Retreat” at 3 Waves Wellness.

Total costs are:

  • Tuition = $1,200 per student (includes food)
  • Lodging = $1,000 for 5 nights at 3Waves Wellness (approximately – often less expensive depending on specific room and duration of stay) – and if you want to arrive earlier or stay longer, we can arrange that too!
  • Food = included breakfast, lunch, dinner, refreshments (healthy and amazingly delicious)
  • Fun = whale watch, history walk, kayak/SUP, beach day (all weather dependent)
  • CMWC course materials (from Functional Foods Institute) = $299 (details below)

Our location is a casual coastal “bed & breakfast” with 7 rooms – so we can host you right here and everyone can hang out together while we learn about and improve our own mental wellness.

Our room options include 3 queens with private baths, 2 kings with private baths, and a really cool 3rd floor suite with 2 private king rooms sharing one bath…King rooms can be shared with the addition of roll-away beds.

All rooms are equipped with ChiliPad mattress covers – so you can control the temperature of your bed for the most amazing night of sleep. We also have a number of “mental wellness modalities” that are available to all guests – including Brio massage chairs, Oculus virtual reality meditation, Apollo NeuroTouch Therapy, Joovv Red Light Therapy, and a ZeroBody Float Bed – so you can learn about AND experience Mental Wellness at a level you never have before.

You can see a bit about Our location (3 Waves Wellness – formerly known as “Above the Bay at Thornton Adams”) HERE – we are close to the beach, the forest, the history of Plymouth, and dozens of cool restaurants, bars, and shops.

Our current curriculum has been a hit with all types of Health Professionals (physicians, chiropractors, nurses, nurse practitioners, naturopaths, personal trainers, health coaches, life coaches, etc) – and our intimate “workshop style” events fill quickly…(all of our other events have sold out almost immediately)…

Background – Why Becoming a CMWC is Important – and Timely

At no time in human history have we ever been so “advanced” technologically and yet so miserable psychologically.

It’s no exaggeration to describe stress, depression, anxiety, and burnout as epidemics – literally the “Black Plague” of our modern times.

How you feel is not just in your head, it’s also in your gut, and your heart, and your immune system, and in many other places inside and outside the actual brain in your head.

National surveys show that happiness and life satisfaction levels are at all-time lows, while depression, suicide, drug addiction, and use of prescription antidepressants and pain-killing opioids are at all-time highs.

There is no physical health without mental wellness. They are two sides of the same coin, and they are vital for each other and for our ability to reach our peak potential in this one life that we have to live.

The CMWC will explore research-supported natural approaches that can improve how we feel mentally and perform physically in every aspect of our daily lives, including:
