Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
- Marianne Williamson

This training is for womxn who are committed to their own journey of personal growth, and are ready to hold space for others to awaken to their power and true nature.

This journey has been designed for you to: learn and practice a wide range of skills and techniques, form a tight knit community of femme leaders, and undergo your own process of letting go of doubt and fear to step into your power as a facilitator.

The Call

This is a wild calling to all womxn who have been touched by the healing magic of womxn’s spaces, to step into your power, and into a position of leadership that you know, deep down, is your path.

If you are hearing this call, and your heart is racing, or you feel a lump in your throat, your hairs are standing on end, then you are ready to offer yourself, in service to the sisterhood. 

Perhaps there is a voice inside that doubts that you can do this. The voice that keeps you small because, as Marianne Williamson so eloquently puts it:

“We ask ourselves

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God.

Your playing small
Does not serve the world…

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we're liberated from our own fear,

Our presence automatically liberates others.”

About the Training

Skills Learning

This is a holistic and practical approach to facilitation that will equip you with skills in the four pillars of sacred embodiment:

  1. Authentic Connection: How to drop the masks and create intimacy.
  2. Ritual: What it means to create a sacred container for transformation.
  3. Embodiment: Expressing and processing through movement and voice.
  4. Meditation: Cultivating a relationship with our inner world.

Personal Growth

Through the process you will undergo your own journey of self discovery and liberation, that is an essential part of becoming a space holder. Learning the tools for transformation, we will apply them to work through blocks that are currently preventing you from fully owning your role as facilitator.

Community

We will meet online weekly, to discuss content, experience practices related to certain themes, and form a tight community of committed, badass, femme facilitators. 

You will also have a smaller learning pod of 4-5 within which you can troubleshoot, share ideas, and keep each other accountable.

This part of the training is absolutely essential, and makes the whole experience way more fun and exciting.

Practice Group

You will be required to start your own circle with friends and family, for you to practice and experiment with the techniques introduced in this training.

We will experience a wide range of tools, from which you will be encouraged to develop your own unique style and offering. 

Experimenting with people you love and trust is an excellent way to find what works for you, and where you really shine. In this part we learn to befriend failure and find the courage to be bold and experimental.

Spiral One: The Four Pillars

Week 1 - 4: Introduction to the four pillars of Sacred Embodiment

Spiral one will introduce all four pillars, through which we will work through internal blocks, and put in place goals and affirmations to support your journey.
We’ll be focusing on the basic foundational practices of each pillar. First experiencing, then unpacking how they work, why they are effective, and how to work with them in combination.
In this phase you’ll also be getting to know each other intimately, showing vulnerability, and building trust.

Week 2: Ritual: Fundamentals of ritual/ Fear and letting go

Week 3: Embodiment: Physical and Vocal Warm Ups and Affirmation

Week 4: Meditation: Grounding, Body scans, Visualisations

Live Gatherings: October 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th. 7-10pm UK time

Spiral Two: Experimentation

Weeks 5 - 8: Practice groups alongside new learning

After learning the basics of the four pillars you will start your own practice group that will meet weekly, in person or over zoom. 

You will continue to learn new content alongside your practice groups, experimenting, and discovering where your passions lie. This is an opportunity to try things out, get it wrong, and build confidence in holding space.

Week 5: Authentic Connection: Tantric techniques for deepening intimacy

Week 6: Ritual: Wheel of the Year, and other celtic ritual practices

Week 7: Embodiment: Womb wisdom, dance of the seasons, and reclaiming your blood.

Our final spiral is an opportunity for you to collaborate within your pods, decide on a theme, and create a circle for the rest of us to participate in. 

Each circle will be 2.5 hours, leaving 30 minutes for feedback.

This will be an incredible learning experience in collaboration, and a beautiful way of experiencing each other’s work, and the journey we’ve all been on together.

Who is This For?

This training is for womxn who are already on a journey of personal growth, and are ready to take the next step, in service to others.

You have probably already been touched by womxn’s spaces, and have been on a path of healing and self discovery. It’s likely you have experienced significant adversary in your life, and you have learnt some valuable lessons that can help others. (Though you certainly haven’t worked through everything, because no one has!)

You resonate with the four pillars, and want to learn more, in a peer support environment, to equip you with the tools you need to create your own offerings. Perhaps you are already offering spaces such as this, and you want more strings to add to your bow.

This training is open to womxn/ femme flavoured folk of all backgrounds, including those identifying as non-binary, trans and cis. If you’re not sure if this is for you, or you have any questions/ concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via email or phone call.
