Transformational Training for Group Leaders 

+ Sacred Business Sister-mind

Starting Summer 2020

Hello and welcome! Thank you, sister, for answering the call to step into your sacred leadership.

Since you're here, I know that:

  • You love bringing people together in meaningful ways 
  • Sharing wisdom comes naturally to you - even if you don't consider yourself a "teacher"
  • You have experienced the healing power of intentional group gatherings, and are now creating your own (or want to!)
  • Organizing and leading transformational workshops, masterminds and/or retreats is part of your business (or it will be!)
  • You're probably already running sister circles or online group programs, and would like to increase your confidence and improve your skills as a facilitator

What does it mean to be a Sacred Facilitator?

You are part of the rising tide of women reclaiming their power and sharing their truth and wisdom. You have a deep desire to make a positive impact in the world, and part of your mission means being an initiator for gatherings with many different sizes, reasons, and forms.

Your voice is needed as collectively we are birthing a new paradigm of leadership. You stand for true freedom, community, inclusion, and peace.

You understand the vital importance of bringing people together to share wisdom, have conversations from the heart, and strengthen our connections to ourselves, each other, and the planet.

You accept your role as a co-creator of our future. This requires embodying integrity, responsibility, courage, and compassion.

Being a visionary, a catalyst, a way-shower, and a space holder — this is what it means to be a Sacred Facilitator.

"This training gave me a framework with tools and support to start facilitating circles. When I first enrolled I thought I would do online circles and group programs. However, as the weeks went on I gained confidence to put myself out there to host live circles. Flora provided a lot of ideas and resources and ultimately I used my intuition and strengths to make a format for my own circles. I led my first circle at my home before the program was done! I wanted a place for like minded women in my area to gather and build a community and it is a truly wonderful feeling to have created that. I'm also now doing group coaching online. I highly recommend this program!"

- Cassandra Solano, LCSW : Psychotherapist, Relationship Coach & Moon Circle Leader


"Having been in various circles hosted by Flora I knew what a beautiful guide she was for sacred experiences, so I was very excited to take her program Sacred Facilitators. Flora combines her extensive & diverse knowledge of the spiritual tools as well as the technical tools for creating powerful containers in this modern age. The content she provides is so clear & actionable, it was easy to immediately put into use for my work. The course & conversations made me think even more holistically about the environments I'm creating for transformation, and I know my virtual groups as well as retreats will benefit from what I've learned. Thank you Flora!"

- Sonya Highfield: Mindset & Business Coach, Real World Creatives

"We are now re-imagining and re-defining what leadership looks like. And I see women at the forefront of this global shift."
~ Flora Ware

When I first started facilitating workshops and women’s circles almost 20 years ago, I was young, energetic, optimistic… and a bit clueless.


Sure, I’d received some informal training and I definitely had lots of experience as a participant, but I didn’t know how to deftly conduct energy flow, or stay on track with my workshop curriculum, or stop the circle from turning into gossip, complaining or chit chat.


I didn't understand the cultural and psychological wounds that deeply affect women such as the sister-wound, mother-wound, and witch-wound. I wasn't aware of how to handle trauma triggers from these and other systemic oppression wounds from racism and cultural appropriation. I wasn't able to hold the depth of sacred space for transformational healing and breakthroughs.


Most importantly, I wasn’t embodying a leadership energy — because I never wanted anyone to feel like I placed myself “above” them in a teacher/guru status. So I continued to people-please and diminish my power and presence.


These are the types of mistakes that can damage your reputation and business.


Think of an event or webinar or virtual group call you’ve attended with a wonderful facilitator, that despite her intelligence and good nature, felt flat and surface-level. Now recall an event where the energy was electric, the facilitator expertly guiding the group so everyone felt deeply impacted.

 

What’s the difference? It’s mastery of sacred facilitation skills and leadership embodiment.


Younger me didn’t realize that the women attending my events WANTED me to be a strong leader in charge of the ritual flow, materials, and energy in the room. 


I want to teach you to do all of this and more. I want to train you to be a Sacred Facilitator.

In the Self Study level you receive:

Opening & Closing Online Ceremonies

We begin with a live, virtual Opening Ceremony, and conclude with a Closing Ceremony.

This means you are not only learning about holding sacred space, but you are immersed in it during the program. These ceremonies will be recorded and the replays sent by email if you cannot attend live.


9 Training Videos

Self-study over 3 months. A new training is released every week. All materials are yours to keep for future reference.


Homework Assignments

Get organized and confident with your facilitation by completing the homework assignment with each training video. 


Private Facebook Community

Connect with other sacred facilitators and share your assignments, celebrations and questions in the private group, benefiting from the inspiration, support and accountability.

In the Sister-Mind level, you receive everything in the Self Study plus:

9 Group Coaching Calls

Meet monthly for the first 3 months, and bi-monthly for the last 3 months to focus on creating and delivering your events and offers. In these sister-mind sessions, you'll receive support and insights from Flora and your peers.

This gives you the invaluable addition of a sacred business mastermind group and 3 extra months compared to the self-study option, including additional lessons on:
~ growing and nurturing your community,
~ soulful social media,
~ rituals in business,
~ being your own PR agent (pitching to podcasts, guest writing, & how to give great interviews),
~ and developing offers and events that are both lucrative and soul-aligned.


2 Additional Training Modules

Receive two extra training videos and assignments:

Advanced Sacred Facilitation Skills ~ working with Sacred Geometry, invocations, and embodying archetypal transmissions that support your event. 

Marketing Your Sacred Business ~ video marketing, PR, managing social media, and promotion methods to grow your community and connect with potential clients.


Facilitation Feedback

Further improve your skills by receiving constructive feedback on your facilitation. Flora will give suggestions after reviewing a video or audio recording of you "in action" or a written outline that you provide.

In the VIP level, you receive everything in Self Study and Sister-Mind plus:

Spotlight Feature

Once all assignments and your final assessment are completed, receive a spotlight promotional feature in Flora's email newsletter and Awaken the Goddess Within Facebook group — putting you in front of 3,000+ women.


Website & Social Media Audit

Flora will review your website and main social media platform and offer suggestions on how to improve your online presence in alignment with your archetypal leadership and goals.


5 Private 1:1 Sessions

Meet with Flora 1:1 to receive personalized mentoring on your archetypal leadership, strategy, marketing, spiritual practices and success mindset.

This gives you the best support to grow your sacred business. Includes 6 months of virtual access to Flora through email and Voxer (voice texting app) so you can reach out with questions or for reflections at any time.

Get the training, skills and confidence you want as a group leader.

  • Uncover your "archetypal leadership" and embody your personal strengths and embrace your shadows.  
  • Never again doubt your ability to create offerings and events that will bring your clients breakthroughs.
  • Immerse yourself in the medicine of circle so it translates potently into the offers you share  
  • "Walk the talk" by integrating spiritual practices into your daily life and your sacred business.  
  • Gain new friendships with other entrepreneurs and facilitators. Connections can lead to collaborations!
  • Expand your offers (and income streams) and apply this skills training to everything you do.  

Which Option is Right for You? 

Self-Study is a good option if you:

  • Work well scheduling your time and completing online assignments on your own
  • Like learning online at your pace
  • Are already well supported with people in your life who understand your spiritual work and motivate you
  • Haven’t led group events before, or only a few, and want to learn how to do it well — but aren’t sure yet if this will become a “business” for you
  • Run a successful 1:1 service-based business and want to offer more group programs and events — but don't feel like you need the extra support of a mastermind

The Sister-Mind is for you if you:

  • Learn best from a mix of online self-study, live group coaching, and hands-on practice; being immersed in the work and held accountable to doing it
  • Love being connected to other like-minded women in a virtual sisterhood for the inspiration and support
  • Are already leading group programs and events, and know that this is a path and an income stream you want to improve and expand on
  • Want the additional training on marketing, advanced group facilitation techniques, and business masterclasses

You want the VIP option if you:

  • Resonate with everything said about the Sister-Mind level, and…
  • Desire personalized mentoring for your leadership and success mindset
  • Want the highest level of support to grow your sacred business from someone who has expertise and experience in both strategy and spirituality
  • Are ready for more visibility and want to receive the benefits of the Spotlight Feature on your work

"The reason why I entered Sacred Facilitators was because even though I have a professional career, I have this yearning of doing more work with women. A few years ago I went through a dark time of depression and burn out— professionally and personally. I got out of it by doing a lot of inner work on myself, learning tools, and I would like to share that with other women so they don't have to go through it and suffer, thinking it's "normal". This program gave me the confidence to start holding circles for women to share, and I've also started hosting vision board parties and I'm helping women in the way I dreamed of doing. I'm now even starting to organize plans to hold a weekend retreat next year!" 

- Pooji Mahtani, Women's Circle Leader

"If you want to learn how to facilitate women's gatherings or any kind of sacred space for people to come together, I highly recommend this fabulous course! It gave me the confidence to go from only online to hosting monthly live circles and now I'm planning my first retreat! Flora is a wonderful teacher and coach — you can't go wrong." 

- Suzie Zurn, aka Madame Zee, Women's Empowerment Coach, Tarot Reader & Witchling Mentor

“Some leaders are born women.”  - Geraldine Ferraro

More Love from Sacred Facilitators alumni...

"Sacred Facilitators gave me two things: A solid foundation of leadership techniques for me to use in the future, and the knowledge that I can succeed as a leader and facilitator. My plans and goals have expanded. The homework assignments helped spark a few ideas for making events bigger and more meaningful, and for a new class or two I could run. I know that my future events will be stronger."

- Cait, USA

"I came into this program because of my longing to be part of a circle, and realizing that where I live I will need to create one to have one to go to! I was unsure if I was ready, I tend to always think I'm not. The program was more than I anticipated, covering more material than I had expected. I was very pleasantly surprised. Thank you Flora for holding the sacred space and creating such an amazing circle."

- Gudi, Iceland

"I'm so glad I trusted my intuition to take Sacred Facilitators! I felt from the first place that Flora is ideal to be my guide for this new experience. I really enjoyed the training videos, and the opening & closing circles so I could experience sacred facilitation as a participant while learning. I'm 100% satisfied!"

- Vasiliki, UK


"Before taking Sacred Facilitators, I had led circles and taught groups before, and it certainly helped me feel more confident that I was doing some things correctly and I picked up more tips and insights. I read, listened, and learned from Flora and the amazing and courageous women in the group. It has inspired and motivated me. And I appreciated the authenticity in Flora Ware's teachings the most. Thank you thank you thank you." 

- Zarina, Malaysia
