The Living Inquiries Facilitator Training Course.
Conducted in small online groups with a high trainer-to-student ratio, facilitator training generally takes about a year to complete. For some it may take a little less time and for others considerably more.
Training is a profound, challenging and very rich experience for everyone who embarks on it. Over the months, strong bonds develop between course participants. Every trainee deepens into their own looking as an essential part of the course, as well as learning the skills to facilitate others. Based in mindfulness, the Living Inquiries are lifelong tools for both our own looking and working with others in a variety of contexts and settings. Our trainees have a wide variety of backgrounds, including mindfulness and meditation teaching, psychotherapy, social work and addiction/recovery.
If you become a certified facilitator, you will have the freedom to develop your individual Living Inquiries practice alongside many others in the Living Inquiries community.
To be considered for training, we require you to have personal experience of the Living Inquiries as either a Deepening Course participant or by having a series of private sessions with a Senior Facilitator/Trainer.
If you feel interested in or ready for training, the first step is to talk it through with one of the Senior Facilitator/Trainers. Once you are willing and able to directly experience what’s possible with the Inquiries, we’ll ask you to complete a pre-training questionnaire. If the trainers feel you are ready for training, you will be offered a place. This process gives you the opportunity to reflect at each stage before you commit to training.
The next training program will begin in September 2018. The full cost of training is $3,200 USD. If you would like to apply for financial support from our scholarship fund, please let us know. We particularly welcome applications from people of color and trans people, who are currently under-represented in our community.

“I have been in the training for eight months now. Amazing. Fiona, Lisa, the volunteers and my fellow participants have had life changing effects. The training, the teaching, and the Inquiry, in their perfection, have shifted my life for the better.
I have uncovered a world of beliefs and feelings that were hidden. As a result, I am a happier person today. Connected deeply to my wife. A more effective teacher. I cannot imagine how I could have gone on the other way now.
While this has been a difficult unveiling for me at times, I am thrilled to have participated and learned some much.” R.L.
“A lot has changed for me during the training course. My deepest buried skeletons have been dug up and looked at. I have come to like and appreciate myself and my daughters more because of this. I am so grateful for the training course. I would do it again any time.” P.H.
