Diverse and Casual People and Togetherness Concept

Come and be transformed:

This training is unique in it’s approach to both train and offer personal growth and spiritual development to you simultaneously.

You will learn the integrated spiritual, philosophical, and psychological work of the
Inner Journey Seminar. You will learn a powerful combination of skills and techniques that are applicable in both individual and group/team facilitation.

_MG_4295 (2)What makes this training unique is the spiritual perspective of the work.

Our approach starts with the psychological, emotional, and mental levels — and teaches you how to facilitate people towards a deep inner spiritual experience: a “non-denominational religiousness.”

To be a ‘spiritual facilitator’ in this context is a special privilege and gift that requires you to walk your own path of inner growth (BE THE CHANGE).

Another profound and distinguishing component of this training is the teaching and application of the ancient Chinese system of the FIVE ELEMENTS in both facilitation work and leadership training.

NOTE: This program is not specifically offered to train you to facilitate the Inner Journey Seminar, but rather to teach you the tools, techniques and spiritual approach of the Inner Journey work in order for you to facilitate people in your current or future profession.

What People Are Saying:

devaa_about“This training is amazing! It includes the best techniques from multiple systems of learning-combining the Chinese 5-elements, psychological processes, art processes, gestalt, and hypnotherapy, among many other tools. They’ve synthesized these processes into one coherent program that empowers the participant to use distinct techniques, depending on the needs of a client. Avoid going to years and years of separate trainings and go to this one! You will leave excited, well-trained, and armed with the confidence necessary to bring your skills into the world!” Devaa Haley Mitchell: CTO The Shift Network, CA


MikeHead “The expertise, watchfulness and compassion of three remarkable facilitators combined with an extraordinarily intricate and rich agenda offers a profound possibility for transformational change. The facilitators supported each participant to courageously address the most challenging of personal issues. I achieved a sense of empowerment and effectiveness as a person, a professional leader, and as a creative spirit that defied anything of what I might have set out as reasonable objective for this 9-day retreat.”Michael Altshuler: Lawyer, CA


20a3128 “I spent sixteen years in the fields of mental health and social work, and pursued years of my own psychotherapy, before participating in the IJ Transformational Facilitation Training. Here, for the first time, I experienced a modality truly inclusive of the whole person’s experience – mind, body, spirit and emotional self. I was impressed by the range of established Western and Eastern theories grounding the Inner Journey approach, and the expertise with which the facilitators integrated and practiced these methods. Most significantly, I feel that IJ surpasses other therapeutic practices in that interventions are thoughtfully structured to invite emotional outpouring and expression, which then allows for the development of a truly greater sense of self-awareness.  For me this contrasts with typical insight-oriented approaches, or others that merely encourage the naming of emotions and/or changing of behaviors. As a professional, I am grateful for having had the opportunity to learn the IJ techniques. I now feel better equipped than ever to effectively help people through life’s challenges and embrace their lives more completely.”   Charlotte Elkin: LSCW, Psychotherapy Practice, New York, NY. C

“I am enormously grateful to both Neelama & Michael for the relief they helped me find as I recovered from divorce. They guided me to forgive myself and to let my husband and son carry their own burdens. With their support, I was able to reach a much clearer perspective. My work with them has lead to a respectful and vastly healthier relationship with my ex-husband.”
