I chose the name “Sacred Circles” because it is more encompassing of the Medicine Wheel, the Sacred Circles in the Celtic world, the circle of breath, and the overall representation of what the circle symbolizes – completion, balance, equality, infinity, wholeness, timelessness, all cyclic movement, and Awen – the Celtic word that represents the divine flow of inspiration. The program is set up online, much like how the Soul Warrior Training currently is organized. You can participate no matter where you are in the world, or what time zone you are in. The course will run one year taking you around the Medicine Wheel again but this time with the focus being on becoming a Sacred Circles Coach. As a part of the tuition, you will also be enrolled in the Soul Warrior Training simultaneously.
Why Choose this Program?
I’ve done a lot of research on other programs out there and I feel like I can deliver something that blows them all out of the water. In my 30+ years of doing this work, I’ve also written curriculum and taught at the top massage therapy colleges in the USA, I’ve owned and operated my own business for 30 years, and I’ve taught both spiritual studies, and business coaching for a number of those years. Most places will teach you the basics. If you know anything about me, you know I go deep and I give you a lot. I’m not going to send anyone out there unprepared.I also am a thriving business owner. Teaching others how to run a business is a priority. You can have all the tools and talent in the world but if you can’t get people in your doors, it won’t matter. It’s the number one thing missing from all programs – how to run the business and marketing side of what you do. And, not to toot my own horn but it is one of my superpowers.
Your course outline will include all the items below with each item having an extensive sub-plot you’ll be digging into. The course will be delivered through video, audio, and weekly live classroom time.
