This concentrated program works on the level of personal transformation while teaching you the skills needed to become a masterful Facilitator. Enrollment is limited, allowing for personal attention.

Phase I

For people who are intending to integrate this transformational approach into other teachings they are offering, or into everyday life and work, without becoming Certified Facilitators. You can take Phase 1 without going on to become a Certified Speaking Circle Facilitator.

You will receive three days of Relational Presence training in a small group of 6-8. This is an experiential training where you will be actively learning how to facilitate a transformational experience for participants. You will be both leading as well as participating in Circles.

Phase II (optional)

For those moving on to Speaking Circles Facilitator Certification this is the Certification Process. For the first 3 months, you will have monthly group coaching calls where you will receive further guidance and be able to get answers for your questions.

You will also receive camera training. We will arrange the camera training sessions with logistics customized for each trainee, working with you in ways convenient to your schedule and geographic location, whether via any combination of Skype, phone, or in person.

To demonstrate proficiency and qualify for certification, you will send in a video of you leading a Speaking Circle.

Upon completion of this phase you are qualified and licensed to offer Speaking Circles to the public for a fee, with a personal profile page on our worldwide Facilitator website. You’ll also enjoy ongoing support from Speaking Circles International and the Facilitator community.

We recommend that you complete the certification within 6 months.
