Facilitator Training


The purpose of our processes is the development of people, not the mastery of the material. Consequently, VantagePoint3 places a high value upon equipping those who facilitate these person-centered processes.

WHAT is Facilitator Training?


If you have been through The Journey, join us on APRIL 12 for an online express A Way of Life Facilitator Training. This is a great opportunity for you to see what A Way of Life is about and in the end be trained to lead a group! Included with this express training is the two-hour training session, facilitator coaching, and a PDF of the Facilitator Guide. (A Way of Life process materials can be ordered in the store separately.)  REGISTER NOW!
