Are you ready to upgrade what you believe is possible for your intimate relationships and share it with others?
This training is perfect if you are...
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!
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.
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.
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!"
