Become A Facilitator
We want our message and our LOVE to spread. And we know that LOVE grows stronger when it grows in numbers. If you feel called to our mission and vision, we encourage you to become a leader in this revolution by participating in our 2-Part Facilitator Training. During Part 1 of the certification, the 15-hour weekend training, is led by one of our Certified Facilitator-Trainers (CF-Ts), who will provide guidance and instruction on how to facilitate our inspirational programs and walk you through the process of delivering these workshops in your own space. Our CF-Ts are dynamic and compassionate facilitators who will provide feedback to each trainee and leave you feeling inspired to create change in your community. This weekend training course is for any self-empowered woman who feels inspired to offer our curriculum to schools, camps, community centers, yoga studios, and other non-profit organizations. You will be trained by Embody Love Movement Founder, Dr. Melody Moore, during Part 2 of the certification. The training takes places in four 1-hour segments of an online training.
What is a Facilitator?
Facilitators are women who lovingly share Embody Love Movement’s revolutionary programs in studios, private practices, schools, camps, community centers and other non-profit organizations. The workshops that they facilitate focus on emotional expression, exposing media myths, changing the conversation from criticism to kindness, and recognizing self-worth and purpose.
How Facilitators Make a Difference:
This training provides participants with the curriculum and skills necessary to facilitate our transformative workshops and to inspire girls and women who participate in our programs to:
♥ Value who they are internally over their external appearance
♥ Be empowered to change the conversation from criticism to kindness
♥ Stop comparing themselves to a false idea of beauty and to others
♥ Find inspiration to embrace their purpose in the world
About The Training & Certification
Part I :: A Weekend Immersion of Empowerment and Skill Building
When you participate in a Facilitator Training you are getting more than just exposure to our curriculum. Our CF-Ts are trained to help you build up your own abilities around facilitation and all the intricacies of this critical work. Because our workshops call upon participants to deepen their own understanding of self-image, self-love and self-acceptance, it is important that we do the same work with our facilitators. Our 15-hour training allows you to dive into the experience of an Embody Love Workshop and then walks you step-by-step through the key elements of facilitating the very work that you have just engaged in. You can expect the following during any of our Facilitator Trainings:
♥ Participation in an Embody Love Workshop led by a CF-T
♥ The being and doing of facilitation: holding safe space
♥ Projection, transference, and shadow work in groups
♥ Using yoga as a tool to find and keep body acceptance
♥ Finding your voice and sharing your truth: story telling that heals
♥ The detriments of body shaming and comparison
♥ Teaching media literacy and demystifying standard of beauty
♥ Practice, practice, practice of facilitation through role play
♥ How to spread the LOVE and bring the revolution to your community
Part II :: Online Intensive
While exhilarating and empowering, facilitating can sometimes be tough. We get it. Holding space for girls and women can bump up against some of our own insecurities.
The Online Intensive Facilitator Training will guide you into navigating your own relationship to your body, to your intentions, possibilities, and purpose. Being an advocate for positive body image requires doing the inner work toward self-love and self-acceptance. At its root, body image acceptance is self-acceptance. It requires self compassion, forgiveness, and presence. It requires an ability to hold others’ process and points along their process with empathy and understanding. It requires a sincere dedication to a personal practice of self-love. This isn’t easy, and there is no perfecting it, but there are tools and resources that can support you.
This four part training includes a culmination of experience from Dr. Moore’s clinical psychology training and experience, yoga and embodiment studies, and spiritual practices. You will be given resources to inform your own continued path toward radical self-love, as well as to be an ally and advocate for others’ unfolding. You will be offered additional skills to navigate difficult conversations as a facilitator, and as a person in the world standing for the truth that everyone deserves dignity and respect. You will be taught meditations, cues, and interventions to support you in bringing yourself and those you teach, mentor, and serve into greater alignment and wholeness. This course is not only a body-image breakthrough, but a soul dive into the possibilities available to you when you stop valuing your external appearance and start experiencing yourself as essential.
