Sistership Circle Facilitator Roadmap
Our mission is to empower leadership in as many women as possible so they may give the gift of circle to every woman on the planet.
When women feel seen, heard and loved, they light up. They feel empowered to make a difference. When women work together, magic happens. Now imagine circles in every city…
This is why we need women like YOU to raise your hand and be the catalyst for more circles to exist, more places for women to gather and support one another.
Our certification process supports you in fulfilling your soul’s purpose to empower women by leading them in circle and making a living doing something you love. We’ve made it easy for you to get started with our proven curriculum, structure and strategies.
We honor the path of the facilitator as a sacred rite of passage. It is not easy; it takes courage, strength and conviction. Women who choose to step into this role are literally transformed through the process.
We have carefully designed our certification process as a rite of passage with rituals and ceremonies along the way to support women in not only becoming circle facilitators, but in embodying their feminine leadership in all aspects of their lives. We help women see their beauty, brilliance and boldness as women creating their lives by design and creating businesses that express their essence.
As women step into becoming Sistership Circle facilitators, they are joining a tribe of dedicated stewardesses who are committed to spreading the message of the divine feminine in the world. We all hold our roles as sacred, and so this intentional rite of passage experience provides the space for our community to transmit our core values and weave us all together as one tribe.
Level 1 Certification Process
The Benefit of Being Level 1 Certified
Our Level 1 Certification is designed to support women in becoming community leaders and having the tools, community, and resources to build their circle business. As a certified facilitator, you gain instant credibility as an expert who has been trained and qualified to lead circle. You also gain access to our extensive and supportive network of facilitators and receive exclusive privileges within our organization.
What’s Included in our Certification
As a Level 1 Certified Facilitator, you receive:
- A beautiful framed certificate to hang on your wall
- A personalized Sistership Circle talking stick
- Level 1 recognition beads for your talking stick
- Permission to use the title “Sistership Circle Certified Facilitator” on your bio, webpage, Facebook, etc for added credibility
- Certification Badge for your website
- Free access to post your events on our website labeled as “Certified”
- Your own Facilitator Page on our website complete with video, testimonials, links, photo, bio and more
Why You Want to be Certified and Licensed
The question you may be asking is: what’s the difference between being Level 1 Certified, Licensed and a Facilitator Tribe Member?
Level 1 Certification is an opportunity to have credibility behind your name. It can help qualify and edify you in your community.
Licensed is an opportunity to use a 12-week proven curriculum as an offering to your community. If you want to make more money as a circle facilitator, you need to transition from running monthly circles to a facilitating a circle program. This can literally take you from making $100/mo running one gathering to making $540/mo with only 6 women or $1080/mo with 12 women in a 12-week circle program. Imagine what that would do for you! You can learn more about our recommended Circle Business Model here.
The Facilitator Tribe Membership is an opportunity to use our monthly curriculum as an offering to your community as well as receive ongoing support and training in your leadership.
The 7-Step Certification Process
Complete How to Lead Circle Leader Experience
Whether you’ve been leading circles for 20 years or have never led a circle in your life, our “How to Lead Circle Program” teaches the foundation of Sistership Circle. It’s important as a movement that no matter where you are in the world, circle has the same structure and creates a safe space that both our participants and facilitators can rely upon for every circle.
You must complete our 12-week program with less than 3 absences, complete the feedback form at the end, and lead at least one circle call in the program between week 6 – 12.
** Women who have gone through the 12-Week Circle Experience either virtually or locally with a certified Sistership Circle facilitator can take the 12-week How to Lead Circle video course at 50% off. Show proof of receipt to get access to coupon code.
We’ve broken this program into two separate parts to give you the chance to not only experience our signature 12-week circle for yourself with other women on the path to certification, but also get a backstage pass into what it’s like to experience circle through the eyes of a facilitator.
Parts 1 & 2: How to Lead Circle Bundle
Can’t wait to get started? Receive $100 OFF + an additional 10% OFF if you’re a Facilitator Tribe member when you purchase the “How to Lead Circle Program”. This package includes each part of the program and syncs each video module (Part 1) to the first half of your 12-week Leader Experience (Part 2).
Not ready to commit yet, but want a taste test? We offer each part separately to allow you to go at the pace that is right for you.
Part 1: HTLC Video Course
In this video series we take you through the first 6 modules of the HTLC Leader Experience and show you the most important aspects of leading circle: starting it, creating safe sacred space, leading from your intuition, avoiding burnout, and adding value while keeping women engaged.
This is a no-risk course for any coach, leader, yoga instructor, healer or practitioner who wants to feel us out before making a bigger commitment.
After completing the Video Course and feeling like it’s a match, you can then finish your certification process by taking Part 2: HTLC Leader Experience and we’ll discount the tuition for you.
Part 2: HTLC Leader Experience
For you to lead our 12-week circle program (The Circle Experience), you need to experience the entire thing firsthand so that you know exactly what to expect and the transformation that is possible within yourself and your sisters.
We take you through the curriculum as a participant, and because this is a circle for leaders, we up-level it, taking you deeper into knowing yourself as a powerful woman, and giving you the opportunity to lead at least one practice circle before the end of the program.
In addition, you will receive valuable feedback along the way so you feel confident in your ability to lead.
“After leading my first full moon circles that lacked structure and real juicy content, I let them go until I found the training I needed to fulfill my vision. I found exactly what I wanted and needed in How To Lead Circle. I am now very proud and happy that my monthly circles are a huge success!”
– Sharlene Belusevic
