What is Heart iQ
Facilitator Training?

A Personal & Professional Upgrade

The Heart iQ Facilitation week is a 20 hour training followed by a weekend with circles led by Christian Pankhurst, Founder of Heart iQ.
 
During these 7-days you will experience two experiences, combined into one. You’ll have a deep, nourishing healing experience of your own growth & leadership while also learning cutting edge tools, frameworks and processes for guiding others into deep sacred space.

Your Week at New Eden

Part 1: Facilitator Training Workshop
 
On Monday night, you'll settle in with the group with a welcome and check in. Then everyday from Tuesday to Friday, we'll gather together twice a day to study Heart iQ Facilitation skills. We run two weeks back to back. Week 1 is all about circle and group dynamics and Week 2 is focused on relationship coaching, sexuality and intimacy dynamics between men & women.
 
Each 2.5 hour session will be highly experiential and emergent in nature as in-the-moment dynamics present realtime opportunities to learn how to facilitate in an amplified field. As the sessions unfold Christian offers commentary and support to reveal exactly what is happening and how to leverage this field to make even more impact. 
 
Throughout the sessions, we debrief, offer feedback and talk about what is happening, leaving no stone unturned, ensuring that all the wisdom from the sessions are integrated into your heart and mind.
 
Part 2: New Eden Weekend Experience
 
During the weekend, after the workshop, you will have an opportunity to take part in the New Eden Experience, a weekend of connection and circle led by Christian. This will give you an opportunity to experience the work first hand, adding to the rich education you'll receive.
 
The experience ends on Sunday afternoon.

Sky-Rocket Your Practice

If you're a coach, therapist, counselor, or practitioner working with personal transformation and healing modalities, then this training could be your next step in expanding and transforming the way you work with your clients.

You'll not only learn how to make more of an impact with what you do, but you'll soon have the tools to help your clients surpass their limitations and fulfil their dreams. 

The training content offers a unique perspective of awakening. Many therapies focus on the pain, block or area of distress. In Heart iQ™, you will be shown how to help your clients re-connect to their joy, which is a process that requires others. You'll learn
how to guide your clients through this journey of self-awareness, while offering them the life-changing gift of knowing how to digest their pain, shame and resistance without needing to focus on the past or fix their behaviour.

Sacred Imprinting is one of the most powerful and unique aspects of Heart iQ™. This aspect provides both you and your clients with an accelerated way of learning by creating a new cellular memory of what's possible, and not just through the mind's understanding, but from a deeper, body-anchored, felt sense of knowing that more is possible.

Once you discover the power of Heart iQ™ group circle dynamics, you'll be forever grateful to yourself that you embarked on this journey!

Accelerate Your Awakening

When you train as a facilitator, you will embark on the most exhilarating and accelerated path of personal growth you could ever dream of. As you help others connect to their joy, you will be reminded of the path back to your own Heart... and in the times when you’re triggered, hurt and in defence you'll know what to do to re-connect and open yourself to life.

You won't find an education like it anywhere else on the planet... and what you'll learn will save your relationship, set your kids up for life and give you a community that will embrace you and support you for years to come. When you're in charge of leading a Heart iQ™ circle, you'll be challenged to stretch your own emotional energetic ranges - for you can only lead another to a new place if you have had the courage to go there yourself.

You most likely already know the truth that we all teach what we need to learn the most, but there is a bigger more profound realisation that will come when you take this facilitator journey:

"You Are Me, Cleverly Disguised As You"

You see, as soon as you're sitting in the facilitator chair, leading your circle - all the different parts of YOU are now coming through the other members of the group. You're not just facilitating them, you're facilitating yourself!

As you bring resonance and harmony to the group, you automatically bring it into your own heart. As you help them see their blind spots, they will reflect back yours. As you support them to see the perfection of the moment, you expand your own trust in life. As you heal the room, you heal the very parts of you that have been fragmented and disowned for so many years. You've spent a lifetime searching for a way to build community, to find your people and to realise your own goodness and value, and now the search is over. This training will quite literally transform your world and enrich it beyond measure. If for no other reason, do it just for that.

Co-Create A Better World

Admit it, deep down you know the truth. There's something special about your being here at this time, at this place. You know you are meant to be part of a grand shift, a collective awakening that will give rise to a more harmonious, inter-connected world.

It's already happening. The world is changing faster than its ever done before and today at this time, humanity needs conscious, heart centred and connected leaders who know how to live together, as a group, as a community. Spiritual practice for too long has been done as an individual journey. But you don't have to do it alone any more. We can do this together and through our collaborative inspired action, we can help reshape this planet. It's a big call. But it's also the reason why Heart iQ™ exists. It's not enough to merely heal from our past hurts, or grow beyond our limitations and fears.

Right now, you have an opportunity to be a part of a special family. As our amplified field grows, can you imagine what kind of impact we can make? With your help, we can infuse this work into the hearts of parents, couples, children, business leaders, the mentally ill, and those broken souls which our society has forgotten.

In time, your efforts will re-shape the very world in which we live, restoring balance with all living things and our planet, ensuring that everyone, young and old, rich and poor can live knowing their divine spark connects us all.

Who is Christian Pankhurst?

Christian Pankhurst is a world leading expert in group dynamics, conscious communication, and the art of circle facilitation. Christian is a master conductor of the collective wisdom that emerges when resonant hearts come together, and his piercing clarity lovingly cuts through bullshit while he holds a space of unconditional love for what wants to emerge in the now.

Christian teaches how to tap into the power of the collective wisdom or 'field' so facilitators learn how to heal themselves and others simultaneously through a process that is embodied and joyful rather than heady and focused on solving problems. 

Christian's unique capacity to translate  complex group dynamics into simple, clear and practical insights is the reason why so many seek him out to get trained in the art of small and large group facilitation.

Christian started facilitating groups in 2002 after graduating as a Chiropractor from the AECC in the U.K. His speciality is using a group’s wisdom and energy to open up gateways of transformation that are simply not available in an individual or one-on-one practice. 

In 2008, Christian entered and won the Britain's Next Top Coach Competition, receiving 52% of the votes from over 90 countries around the world. He is the best-selling author of Insights To Intimacy - Why Relationships Fail and How To Make Them Work, and is the co-founder of New Eden, a centre for those wishing to grow, co-create and awaken together in community.

"Choosing this training flowed from an inner knowing that took place in approximately 30 seconds. I listened and trusted my inner voice and I will be grateful for that for the rest of my life.

Utterly dedicated to every single participant in the room, watching Christian facilitate is a masterclass in itself. There is a beauty and depth to his work that is both subtle, but also practical. My nervous system has literally stretched beyond its original shape and I know this transformation is cellular. If you love witnessing your own metamorphosis from caterpillar through the mulch to a butterfly, this retreat will knock your socks off, blow your mind and re-wire your biology. I can’t recommend it highly enough or wait to go back for more!"

Frequently Asked Questions

The next Facilitator Training weeks are scheduled for September 2nd - 8th and September 9th - 15th, 2019.

You can choose to do either one of these weeks or stay for both.  

Week 1 is about group dynamics and circle skills and Week 2 is about Relationship, Sexuality and Intimacy Coaching.

If you're a coach, therapist, counselor or healer or a practitioner working in the personal development field then taking this training will utterly and completely transform the way you work with your clients.
 
You won't just make a little more impact with what you do - you'll soon have the tools to take your clients to places they didn't even know were possible. 
 
You will finally feel the freedom to make the kind of difference that you've always known to be possible, but have yet to fully realize. You'll be able to take your clients deeper AND lighter while giving them a true experience of how community is meant to be. You'll be literally transforming their world and upgrading their idea or what it really feels to be 'normal'.
 
Your clients won't be the only ones benefiting. As a practitioner in this training, you will be part of a thriving and engaged heart intelligent community of other passionate, open and real individuals where you can build life long friendships and receive support.
 
Many therapies focus on the pain, the block or the area of concern. In Heart IQ™, you will be taught how to help your clients re-connect to Joy, and that doing this in the presence of others can digest their pain, shame and resistance at lightning speed and efficiency without needing to dig up their past, or fixing their behavior. 
 
But here's the thing. To help your clients return to their natural joyful state requires OTHERS. Relationships and life were part of the environment that disconnected them, and it will be required for their healing.
 
Therefore, working in a group with a resonant amplified field is key, and we believe, will be the future of all healing interventions and modalities. Heart IQ is like flying to New York in the Concorde rather than taking a boat. It's simply the fastest way to get from A to B.
 
Working in a group also allows you to focus on one of the most powerful and unique aspects of the work: Embodiment. This is achieved through the advanced practice of Range Physicalization, where you will literally guide the group to provide the client's nervous system with a new cellular memory of what's possible - to re-wire their experience, not just through changing their beliefs at the mind level, but from a deeper more physically anchored place.
 
The time of solo spiritual practice is over. It's time to evolve beyond the 1-2-1 didactic talking therapies and to embrace a more powerful and transformative way to work with your clients.  
 
When you discover the power of Heart IQ group circle dynamics, you'll be forever grateful you embarked on this journey and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it before

Heart IQ, while having some overlap with other modalities such as coaching and therapy, is a unique and leading edge transformational technology. 

 
We have chosen to not pursue accreditation because we don’t fit into the box that many of today's leading organizations try to put us in. We have made the decision to only align with organizations that recognize our core values and methods.
 
If you require accreditation, we recommend taking additional training in the field of your choice to supplement this course.

No. This training does not offer certification as a deeper commitment and more extensive practice is required. We plan to offer certification with the Heart iQ™ Academy in the future, but this training is a pre-requisite for enrolling to the next stage.

When you train as a Heart IQ Facilitator, you will embark on the most exhilarating and accelerated path of personal growth you could ever dream of.

IMPORTANT: If you want to make a business out of practicing this work, it requires a lot of hard work and an entrepreneurial spirit – which is why we mostly recommend it for those people with an existing business who want to integrate Heart IQ into their practice. 

 
We don’t teach you how to build a business, so while you can take the skills you learn in Heart IQ and apply them to any area of your life, it will ultimately be up to you applying dedicated, business-savvy methods if you want to create an income and impact leveraging your Heart IQ training.

No. This training is for educational purposes only. You are free to use the methods and frameworks taught as long as you credit Heart iQ™ and Christian Pankhurst. You are not permitted to use the trademark of Heart iQ™ in any way unless you are certified.
