Online Facilitator Training

9 month online full certification training

Join Us For the inaugural Online

Facilitator Training & Soul Quest

Applications now Open

We are excited to announce that our Online Facilitator Training & Soul Quest is finally ready to be birthed!
Join us october 2022!

In recognition of the shifting times we are in, and to honour the various ways in which many of us have changed how we live, work, study and travel – we have developed an online training in order to welcome the next wave of future facilitators onto our Dancing Freedom team – wherever you are in the world.

In creating this online training we are aiming to make space for those of you who are unable to attend our live trainings in Australia whether for financial reasons, the inability to take so much time away from your responsibilities, the various challenges of world travel, the desire to have a low carbon footprint, or restrictions due to personal health choices.

Over the years that we have been offering this training, we have always tried to find ways to create equality and accessibility for people of all backgrounds and different economic situations. One of the gifts that this pandemic has brought is to show us how adaptable, resilient and responsive we are as humans. Through necessity we have learnt to be creative and skillful with technologies that allow us to connect virtually, and learnt that deep connection, togetherness and learning is possible, and even more than possible – it can be profound.

Facilitator Training - 9 Month Online Training

We have been working hard and getting creative to design a cohesive online training format that encompasses the entirety of the Dancing Freedom curriculum over the course of 9 months. Of course, nothing can replace the embodied learning of dancing together in a group in the same physical space over an extended period of time, but this is the next best thing and we will do our utmost to make sure that you receive all the skills and experience you need to step forward.

The sessions will be both US and Europe time zone friendly and will allow us to also make this coursework more accessible than ever to our BIPOC communities and those in countries where the socio economic conditions would not normally allow you to afford a training of this calibre.

Applications are now OPEN.
We look forward to stepping into this alchemical crucible with our global tribe in October of 2022.

With Love,
Caitlin & Phoenix
