Some of my Facilitation Blunders (3 Case Studies & the tools I developed from them)

It’s true that I’m known as one of the best workshop, ritual and retreat facilitators in the industry, but what you probably don’t know is this: In my nearly 20 years of facilitating (& training others to facilitate!), I’ve made tons of mistakes. Not just little mistakes, but real biggies. The kinds that are cringe-worthy and the kinds that I’ve shed some real tears over.

But that’s how I’ve learned and that’s how I’ve developed so many of my facilitation tips and tools.

I decided it would be fun to share 3 Case Studies with you on mistakes I’ve made and the facilitation tools that came out of them.

The 4 Levels of Transformation you must provide your clients

(integrate this into EVERY coaching session, workshop, retreat and curriculum you create)

 

transformationIf you’re keyed in to the self-development and transformation industries, you know that a lot of folks right now are pretty pissed off at the services they’re receiving:

They are complaining that they’re not shifting,
they’re not learning,
they’re not transforming,
and they’re not growing.

Now of course, some of the complaints are total BS (excuse my language).

A Love Letter to the Ones Who Go Deep


If you are a coach, practitioner, facilitator or healer who likes to go deep, you and I are definitely coming from the same place.

I wrote today’s “love letter” and manifesto for you to inspire you to keep on doing what you’re doing and to remind you of the incredible value that you offer.

It’s too easy to lose sight of this in a transformational industry that can sometimes be a bit flashy or surface-oriented.

We created the manifesto as a pretty PDF so that you can print it out and keep it close at hand when you need it.

Behind the scenes at my Shadow & Archetype Facilitator’s Retreat

It was recently pointed out to me that I don’t often share with you, my beloved community, the profound magic & learning that happens at my training retreats, so here we go!

Two weeks ago I led a special training retreat for Advanced Facilitators to learn how to leverage Shadow and Archetype for greater healing and transformation in their retreats and workshops.

This particular training is one of my favorites and the growth in the room is always astronomical.

One of the reasons I teach this particular training is because I believe it is SO important for coaches, teachers, healers, and workshop leaders to have a firm understanding that in order for their clients to feel fully whole and complete, and in order for their clients to have access to all of their power….they MUST be willing to look at, embrace, and ultimately love ALL parts of themselves.

Not just the pretty parts. Not just the shiny parts. Not just the “acceptable” parts. ALL parts.
