I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had running workshops since taking your training. It’s been good for my soul and for business—even on the day 155 people showed up for what was supposed to be a 40-person workshop. It was wild, but people loved it.

This program is part of a three-course curriculum on the four pillars of transformational workshops: a holistic view, mind-body practices, group process, and the group leader’s twin roles as teacher and facilitator. Each course stands on its own and may be taken in any order. The three courses include Creating Transformational Workshops, a two-day overview to help you get clear about your calling; Designing and Leading Transformational Workshops, a five-day immersion in the craft of the experiential teacher; and Facilitating Transformational Workshops, a four-day group-dynamics lab on the art of facilitating.
