Prerequisite

The only pre-requisite for the Facilitator Training is to have taken a Radical Wholeness workshop prior to the start of the training.


Covid Protocols

  • Our preference would be for everyone to come with a PCR test taken within 72 hours of the start of the training. We recognize the expense and inconvenience of the PCR test but feel that because we are spending five days together, this extra precaution is worth it.
    • For anyone who has been double vaccinated, we will accept an official lateral flow or antigen test (not a home test) taken the day before the start of the training.
    • If you are not fully vaccinated, a PCR test is necessary.
    • We understand that taking the PCR test (or even an antigen test) isn't possible for anyone who's recovered from Covid in the last 90 days. We are asking those people to bring a certificate showing proof of recovery.
    In addition, we’d ask:
  • In the 10 days prior to the training, please consider limiting your exposure to other people as much as possible, and wearing a mask while in public places.
  • Thank you for your understanding with all this.

Training Dates

The training runs over three five-day sessions, spaced out over one year, with weekly Zoom calls in between.
The in-person training dates are:

Session One November 30 – December 5, 2021
Session Two May 31 – June 5, 2022
Session Three November 29 – December 4, 2022

On the first day we'll gather in the late afternoon, have a meal together and an evening session. On the last day we will finish with a morning session and lunch.

*If you haven’t yet taken a Radical Wholeness weekend workshop, there will be one on the weekend preceding the training. Those enrolled in the TEPP training can receive a 50% off discount on that and any weekend workshop(s) during the training year. Discount code at the bottom of page.

Accommodation and food

Due to Covid protocols, we have removed Shared Accommodation options and all accommodation is private. If you are coming with a partner or person in your bubble and would like to share a room, please sign up and let us know and we will issue a refund for shared accommodation.

The food is all vegetarian and vegan, gluten-free and other dietary accommodations can be made.


Payment Options:

The cost of each of the three retreat sessions is €2060 ($2292 US). This includes the 5-day immersion (with 5 nights private accommodation and all meals), weekly video calls for the year of the training, a facilitators’ manual, online resources to support you through the training and a key teaching aid. It will also include fun, because it’s in the spirit of play that we most fully engage and learn.

The year of training should be paid in full prior to the start of session two. By signing up for the training you are expressing a commitment to complete the full year. Payment can be made in 1, 3, or 6 instalments. (We've retired the 9 instalment option as payment should be complete before the start of session 2. But speak to us if you would like to work out another option.)

Click here to proceed to payment options page.

Please note, participants are expected to stay at the retreat centre. There's a certain magic that happens when we spend 5 days together: opportunities for casual or deep conversations, shared walks or swims etc. If for some reason you're not able to stay at the retreat centre and have made other arrangements with us, there will be a fee to cover your portion of the workshop space cost.

*Transportation to the venue is not included but we will do our best to facilitate car-pooling.


Required readings

Before Session 1
Original Wisdom: Stories of an Ancient Way of Knowing by Robert Wolff
Wolff takes us with him as he discovers the Sng’oi, an aboriginal culture in Malaysia – and as he discovers them, we discover ourselves, and see what we have lost, and what I strive in my work to regain. A beautiful, moving, illuminating little book.

Before Session 2
TEPP Facilitator's Manual - which you'll receive at the conclusion of the first session

Before Session 3
Radical Wholeness


What to prepare

As in the Radical Wholeness workshop, some of the exercises require that you know a short text by heart. Rest assured, this is not something you will ever be asked to perform – it’s just needed for some of the exercises. You can use one you are familiar with, or find a new one. It can be anything at all – a nursery rhyme, a song lyric, a Shakespearean monologue, the national anthem, a poem, anything. It really doesn’t matter, although it does help if it’s something you enjoy. It can get pretty tedious saying, “Row, row, row your boat” over and over. Just saying…

Whatever you choose to memorize, it should be at least 45 seconds long, though any length in excess of that is fine. If English isn’t your first language, feel free to bring something in your mother tongue. Having it WELL memorized is important.


What to bring

You might wish to bring a reusable water bottle or travel coffee mug. Please bring clothes that are comfortable to move in. You might also wish to bring a notebook.


Communicating

In your registration confirmation email you'll see an address you can use to contact the whole group. Communicating between sessions is so helpful to supporting each other’s learning and deepening the connection of the group. Please add the address to your address book to help ensure you don’t miss any messages!


Getting there is half the fun

We’ve created a shared document called "The Hero’s Journey" on Google Drive. The link to this document is in your registration confirmation email. Please fill in your arrival and contact details and whether you need or can offer a ride. A few people are coming from far away and would appreciate offers of help in this way.

Transportation to the venue is not included. We are hoping to arrange a bus from Amsterdam Schiphol airport on Tuesday afternoon. Please indicate if you'd like to be on the bus with us!
