HIRE OUR SEDONA WOMEN’S INSTITUTE’S TRAINED FACILITATORS
There are many people who call themselves facilitators but there are few who have taken the time to learn and embody the skills that would make them a professional facilitator. In 2015, we began a Facilitator Training program to prepare women to carry the vision of the Sedona Women’s Institute forward to touch the world in their unique way.
The Sedona Women’s Institute’s Facilitator Training program is a rigorous 6-month distance learning course followed by a 5-day practicum retreat. Each applicant has been carefully vetted and we are confident that each graduate has had the training, guidance and mentoring needed to become a well-trained professional facilitator.
