The Inner Bonding Facilitator Training Retreat
Who should apply?
The deeply immersive Inner Bonding Facilitator Training Program (IBFTP) is designed for adults from all backgrounds who have benefited from the Inner Bonding process developed by Dr. Margaret Paul and Dr. Erika Chopich. Some are counselors, therapists, ministers, coaches, healing professionals and teachers. Some are leaders, entrepreneurs and consultants. Others have no work experience in these areas but have been on their own personal and spiritual growth path and feel ready to take the next step. We believe the best Inner Bonding facilitators are the ones who are committed to their own growth and healing and are therefore able to compassionately walk beside and guide others from their Loving Adult.
What are the requirements for application?
A minimum of one 5-Day Inner Bonding intensive with Dr. Margaret Paul or her 9-month mentoring program with the Shift Network, plus any prerequisites specified by the training team on an individual, case-by-case basis
A minimum of 1 year in recovery from any addictions, plus active working of a program, if applicable
Permission from Dr. Margaret Paul to apply to the IBFTP
Completion of a Loving Adult Self Assessment (LASA) to assess your own readiness to enter the IBFTP (See "How to Apply" on Tuition & Application Page)
Completion of application and payment of $50 non-refundable application fee
Inner Bonding Facilitator Training Program
Inner Bonding® Facilitator Training Program
We are pleased to announce the new Inner Bonding Facilitator Training Program (IBFTP), a year-and-a-half experiential, comprehensive training curriculum that provides a balance of professional development with the opportunity for profound personal transformation. Graduates who successfully complete the training requirements will be eligible to earn practicum hours to become Certified Facilitators of Inner Bonding and should feel professionally competent to work with clients. At the same time, participants will be encouraged into deeper contact with themselves and their spiritual guidance. This connection will allow them to operate more effectively from their Loving Adult selves in their personal lives, navigating challenging situations from a place of inner strength and living with more joy, awareness and peace. The unique, small group format of the IBFTP, with a maximum of 20 participants per training program, allows for personal attention from the trainer and assistants and provides an environment for cultivating deep and lasting friendships with other participants.
The “Inner Curriculum”
The primary purpose of Inner Bonding has always been to aid participants in living from their Loving Adult, which means living with purpose, integrity, clarity, centeredness and from a place of peace and joy. How do you do this when the client in front of you is triggering your childhood trauma? When you have moved out of your compassion? When you are judging yourself? When you are afraid? Even when you’ve forgotten the steps of Inner Bonding? In this program, we will show you. We’ll teach you how being an Inner Bonding facilitator is about the courage to know and to be who you really are; we’ll teach you how “who you are” is enough. Come join us and become an integral part of the Inner Bonding family of facilitators.
