- Nisha K. 

"The NUSHU facilitator training came to my life at a time I was craving something deep, meaningful and authentic. This is a community of open minded individuals who believe in the power of the supportive collective. The training laid a trusting and warm foundation, which helped me tap back into my strength and open up in an honest way. Not only did I connect with others, I deeply connected with myself. I wish for everyone to step into the NUSHU Group practice and experience the simple beauty of support and love."

- Brooke G.

"Our weekly homework was an invitation to explore all parts of ourselves with gentle compassion. We learned that striving to hold space for others helps you grow tremendously yourself. I saw each one of the facilitators in my class grow exponentially between the first and final training session. By the end, I was able to see in myself what my class saw in me."

Mandatory Training Sessions are on Tuesdays from 12 to 1:30pm EST or from 4:30 to 6pm EST. 
The exact dates of the Tuesday sessions are April 6, 13, 20, 27, and May 4, 11, 18, 25.

WHAT ARE THE EXACT DATES AND TIMES OF THE TRAINING?

For the duration of the training, each participant will be assigned to a smaller 6 person cohort guided by a NUSHU Mentor. During weeks 2-7, these smaller groups will meet in breakout rooms to experience NUSHU Group. Each participant will facilitate a NUSHU Group experience through the offering of prompts and inviting the other members to share. Your NUSHU Mentor is available before your session to help you prepare your prompts and will also give you feedback after your turn. Please know that we will support you fully and completely and that you will be in the most supportive and loving environment possible for trying something new!

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT FOR THE TRAINING?

- Andrea C.

"I loved the training so much. I'm really sad it's over. Personally, it helped me gain more confidence, confirm my love for the human experience / our stories, and address my impostor syndrome."

What’s included in THIS Training?

Facilitating NUSHU Group is available to anyone who holds the intention of love and has the capacity to show up for others with compassion and non-judgment. There are no skills or specific qualifications required.

What if my inner dialogue says: "Who am I to think that I could be a leader or a teacher and help others on their personal journey?"  If you are having these doubts, this is exactly for you. NUSHU Group facilitator training addresses the underlying doubts that limit our empowerment and prevent us from stepping into our full healing power and accessing our gifts to help others. 

What qualifications do I need to join?

- Maureen C.

"The NUSHU Group Facilitator Course shaped me and is still challenging
me to come out of my shell to see myself as a leader. Every session brought me to a new level of awareness about how I carry myself in the world."

If you feel called to help others, to be of service, but you don’t know exactly what form that could take, this is for you. If you already have a practice of healing or teaching (yoga, nutrition, life coach, reiki, etc.), NUSHU Group is a complementary and additional modality that you can offer your community. If you have participated in Group and have enjoyed the environment of trust, safety, and love, this is an up-leveling of that experience.

Is NUSHU Group Facilitator Training for me?

In a world of increasing disconnection and loneliness, NUSHU Group is an opportunity to experience intentional community, where we have the permission, conditions, and support to share what’s on our mind and in our hearts and connect deeply with other human beings. It is a space where we do not fix or give advice, but where we simply witness others and are witnessed ourselves. In a small group and guided by a facilitator and prompts, this modality allows us to powerfully access our own healing, to know ourselves in order to remember our wholeness and catalyze positive change.
