As an award-winning Life Coach, teacher and pioneer in the field of consciousness, Wendy Down has been actively inspiring people to a higher expression of themselves since 1999.
She has taken her uncanny ability to discover untapped individual and collective potential and created a thriving private coaching practice and The Consciousness Playground, a bustling (now free!) online community for gifted healers and consciousness pioneers.
Her experiential programs and gentle, down-to-earth style of coaching are known for creating magical moments of transformation that result in a quantum leap in awareness (and the occasional impromptu belly laugh).
Wendy has always been passionate about the science and art of living life full on. A lifelong student, she graduated at the top of her class at the University of Calgary with a Bachelor’s in Nursing and went on to achieve a Master’s in Adult Education from the University of Toronto. A favorite book is “Courage: the Joy of Living Dangerously” by Osho.
A Registered Nurse for 16 years, she became a faculty member of Health Sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario and was considered an outstanding teacher by her students.
She then undertook professional training at Coach University, the leading coach training firm accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). She transitioned from nursing to create a thriving life coaching practice working with over 8,000 individuals through her innovative private and corporate programs.
In 2003, she won special recognition through the ICF’s prestigious Prism Award for her popular “Unclutter Your Life” program. Its focus: To teach professionals how to create a more meaningful and balanced life.
Her coaching continues to evolve, teaching cutting-edge transformational practices and technologies in the exploding field of consciousness studies.
Her current passion is for creating online programs that guide forward-thinking folks to defy conventional wisdom and reinvigorate, reinvent and reshape their bodies and health through the focussed application of their own consciousness.
One example is her online Youthening Program.
Previously, she was the content developer and director of the Advanced Mentoring Program for WaveMaker Coaches at Great Life Technologies in Carlsbad, California where she achieved the highest certification possible (which was easy since she was responsible for giving out certifications at the time.)
When she’s not busy exploring the globe or painting a wall, Wendy can be found in her home office in Brantford, Ontario, where she lives with her husband Dwayne and their two children, Nicholas (18) and Haley (14).
