ANNOUNCING: Wisdom Circle Facilitator Training -- Spring 2020


If you are a lover of storytelling, believe in its power to awaken, heal, inspire and want to learn how to facilitate Wisdom (storytelling) Circles in your home, community, or organization, this blog post is for you.

In the Spring, I will be launching an online Wisdom Circle Facilitation training that will teach you everything you need to know to become a masterful facilitator of storytelling circles. And all it takes is two hours. That's it. Two hours.

As the author of two books on storytelling (see below) and the Founder/Facilitator of Wisdom Circles in the US, Mexico, and Australia, I am now ready to share what I know with others who are wanting to carry the "storytelling torch". My vision? That all over the world, on any given night, there will be thousands of Wisdom Circles happening -- soulful, engaging, life-enhancing opportunities for friends, neighbors, and co-workers to gather together and share their memorable, meaningful, wisdom-infused stories with each other.

Towards that end, I have distilled down everything I know about facilitating Wisdom Circles and will be soon be sharing it, once a month, with the rest of the known universe. Each participant will also receive (at no extra charge) a link to my "Micro-Learning for Storytellers" service -- a self-study curriculum that includes 52 videos, articles, and stories on the art and science of storytelling and group facilitation. Whoo hoo!


The date of the upcoming online training? TBD. Probably in May. The price? I'm still figuring that out, but know this -- it is going to be affordable. (PS: You can earn back the cost of the training with the first two Wisdom Circles you facilitate).

If you want me to keep you in the loop, email and I will keep you posted.
