This is an invitation to learn about the essential Shadow Work® facilitation skills and how to use them for yourself, your family, and in your community. The process we invite you to join will be intense, enjoyable and practical and will take you behind the scenes so that you can understand the thinking we employ while facilitating.
Shadow Work® provides powerful tools for bringing out of the shadow and into the light whatever parts of yourself you have split off, repressed, denied, or disowned. In this way, you have more capacity, balance, and choice with which to live your life. Our desire is that you will discover how to use the power of ritual space to use these tools for doing that consistently with yourself and others. The scope of what you can expect to get out of this training is enormous and includes:

It is recommended that you attend a Shadow Work® weekend or the equivalent before attending the Basic Facilitator Training. Equivalents include Women In Power, the New Warrior Training Adventure, Woman Within, the Inner King Training, the Inner Sovereign Leadership Training, and the Priestess Path.
This training draws a rich diversity of people, including educators, therapists, group leaders, writers, lawyers, organizational development consultants, and others dedicated to their own personal and professional growth.THE BASIC STEPS OF SHADOW WORK® FACILITATION
We believe that being able to recognize and use your own shadows while facilitating is one of the greatest challenges of facilitating and also one of its greatest rewards. In this training you will learn how to recognize your own shadows as they appear during facilitation, how to recognize your co-facilitator's shadows, and how to use these to help you navigate the process rather than have the shadows in hiding. Other shame-free behaviors you will learn:
In this training, you will learn how to recognize the underlying wounds in each of the four Quarters and how to facilitate the basic Shadow Work® processes to address those wounds.SOVEREIGN TOOLS AND CONDITIONAL LOVE WOUNDS
Within the basic recipe for Shadow Work®, there is a lot of room for using your intuitive skills, and we will teach you how and when to use your intuition:
Didactic sessions: Mini-talks where we present (and welcome your questions on) basic concepts, tools, considerations, challenges, cautions, and tips for successful Shadow Work® facilitating.
Centerwork pieces: You can do your own personal issue work in a centerwork piece facilitated by your colleagues and closely coached by us.
Practice tools: Brief exercises where you practice using the tools or segments of a tool.
Practice sessions: You have the opportunity to facilitate one of your colleagues in a centerwork piece where you and your co-facilitator decide your strategy based on what your participant wants to have happen.
Supportive feedback: Group and trainer feedback on your facilitating, focusing on what you do well and right, and framing improvement areas in loving, honoring ways.
Co-facilitation teamwork: We model co-facilitation issues by openly sharing our own internal process as we facilitate, and you learn to facilitate with a co-facilitator in a synergy where 1 + 1 = 3+.
Loving acceptance: Specific check-ins and other activities illustrating the practice of compassionate, respectful support.SPECIAL FEATURES
After reserving your place in the training, you will receive the Shadow Work® Basic Facilitator Training Manual and two DVDs demonstrating and explaining the basic Shadow Work® facilitation tools. (If you already have these materials, your BFT tuition will be credited with the amount you paid for the training materials.) We ask you to study these before you attend the training. At the training, we ask only that you focus on learning to honor and love yourself as you participate in both the practice and real Shadow Work® processes we will coach. After attending this training, you are eligible for the Advanced Facilitator Training.A SAMPLING OF RAVE REVIEWS
Bill Isaacs, Ph.D., President, Dia*Logos, Cambridge, Mass. "Shadow Work® is a remarkable and unusually potent process for producing transformation, personal and collective. It helped me a great deal personally and it helped in dramatic ways to deepen the capacity of the team of dialogue practitioners with whom I work."
Jennifer Gilchrist, psychotherapist, Evanston, Ill. "I loved the intellectual process of breaking down and analyzing the healing process in a container that holds a deep emotional experience. It has greatly facilitated the ease and grace with which I can make the archetypes a practical tool for my clients."
Robert Hatch, certified insurance counselor, Oshkosh, Wis. "It was great. I loved it! Cliff Barry speaks about the archetypes and the shadow more clearly and profoundly than anyone I've ever heard (including Robert Moore and Robert Bly). Listening to him was truly delightful."
Jim Warner, President, OnCourse International, Boulder, Col. "The BFT is a profound training experience where facilitators, mentors, and counselors work with men and women seeking deeper personal awareness and intimate community. I facilitate community-building retreats for men and women executives in mid-life.... Without question [the BFT tools] have made me a more effective and understanding facilitator."
Deborah Celestino, minister, facilitator and administrator, Corona, Cal. "The Shadow Work® principles have been a cornerstone to the processing work we use in our own workshops. I found the trainers to be well organized and easy to learn from. They created a rare experience: a completely safe container filled with love, understanding and teaching."
Bob Selig, accountant, Houston, Tex. "Fabulous, wonderful. Indispensable for learning about Self and others."
Keith Fairmont, consultant, Boulder, Col. "Through my Shadow Work® experience, I have been able to understand the fundamental human dynamics we each long to experience: love, ability to communicate, connection, desire to be seen for who we are, support in claiming the lives we desire, an the risks involved in being ourselves. The BFT woke me up, challenged me and assisted me in seeing the world from a much more realistic and expanding viewpoint (giving me new optimism on life both personally and professionally)."
Johana Wells, professional singer and arts administrator, Buffalo Grove, Ill. "Absolutely fantastic experience an I want to do it again! It was intense, clear, well-paced, supportive and effective. The material was presented in a clear, systematic way that gave me a sense of how to do the work, and what questions to ask next. The skill level and effective communication and supportive environment that the trainers create provide an optimum learning experience."PROGRAM INFORMATION
