After over a decade of sharing Essence vs Form™ with hundreds of people, organizations, including the US Navy, it became clear that if I wanted to see more people receive the life-changing benefits of this program, I would have to make more of me. Since I did not know how to do this (which could have come in handy a time or two), I decided to invite some of my students to become teachers themselves. Trained directly and intimately by me, having studied my full Essential Happiness Program in addition to Essence vs Form™, and having traveled with me, they are fully qualified to share this work in their own parts of the world. I am awed and deeply touched to introduce you to these extraordinary nine Certified Essence Coaches.
They are ready to bring you Clarity, Authenticity and Gentle Power.

Rand Stamm Bellingham, WA
Rand first learned about the amazing gift that is Essence vs. Form™ in 2013 and has been using it ever since. As a sculptor and artist for over 40 years, these easy tools have proved invaluable in defining not only what a work will be saying, but also in communicating that Essence with the observer.
