THis 100 hour training is an immersive experience for those who wish to facilitate experiences of powerful transformation using a holistic body, mind, and spirit approach.
We know you, sister.
You are the one who feels so deeply, who loves fully, and who longs to truly make a difference in your community. When women come together - magic happens. Be it a yoga class, a womxn's circle, a ceremony, or just a simple get together - you feel the power of womxn coming together, and somewhere deep down inside - it moves you. Maybe you’ve already held space for womxn before - or maybe you’re new to creating sacred space - whichever one it is, you feel the call of your intuition to step up in a new and B I G way. You long to gather new tools + intensively dive into what it means to create authentic, inclusive, and revolutionary space for transformation.
You believe in yourself, but you’re looking for guidance - that’s where we come in.
Who is this training for?
The Wise Womban Way Transformational Facilitator Training is an intensive training for yoga teachers, energy workers, bodyworkers, therapists, doulas, midwives, and ANY woman who feels the call to step up and dive deep into their ability to facilitate revolutionary space for transformation. This is for women who are ready to change the world - women who are ready to answer the calls of their wild hearts. Women who are ready to serve others and themselves at their highest capacity. For the ones who desire to take their intuitive skills, ability to authentically communicate their truth, and conscious business practices to the NEXT level - this is for you.
It's important that you know...
This training is highly experiential, which means that we encourage just as much looking inwards as blossoming outwards. You cannot lead people into places that you yourself fear. Group transformation, ritual, and ceremony will be practiced everyday to facilitate a deeper connection with your Self + Spirit.
Time is carved in the schedule to ensure that each womxn gets one on one feedback from a lead facilitator through practicum sessions. During these sessions, you will receive guidance + feedback on a unique transformational event that you create yourself.
The space that we cocreate together is completely inclusive to all races, religions and ways of being. If you do not identify as a womxn but would still like to attend - please contact us.

Questions? We have the answers. If you still have lingering questions after reading through these answers, please schedule a call with us to talk further details by following the link below - we are here for you and desire to support you on this journey.
What airport do I fly into?
We recommend flying into Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO) in the capital of San Jose. From there, you can catch the shared shuttle service (more details below) and enjoy the ride to Puerto Viejo, located about five hours away.
HOW DO I GET FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE RETREAT CENTER?
We recommend booking a shared shuttle service called Caribe Shuttle, which offers transportation directly to your accommodation in Puerto for $50 each way. Once you arrive to the airport, you can take a five minute taxi to the shuttle pickup at nearby Denny’s Restaurant. Shuttles leave two times a day - so be sure to check their website for all the details.
What if I desire to arrive a few days early or extend my trip after the Training?
Wonderful - Costa Rica is a beautiful country that has so much to offer. Once you place your deposit, you will receive a Womben Wellness welcome packet that includes a TON of information about the area including places to stay, attractions, and restaurants in the area.
Can I attend the training even if I don't have prior experience to leading transformational experiences?
Yes! This training is accessible and deeply valuable for ALL those who wish to facilitate transformation. In a way, If you arrive without too much prior experience, the teachings can be absorbed and you can begin facilitating from a balanced and sustainable place of offering. Make sure to fill out our application here to tell us more about yourself.
Do we have any days off during the training?
You will have one full day off during the training where optional transportation will be provided to the nearby beach.
How do I know if this training is for me?
If you desire to connect with your uncompromisable truth and facilitate from authentically from that place - this is for you. If you desire to dive deep into your own work while gaining tools to support the transformation of others - this is for you. If you believe the best facilitators are the ones who have truly felt the depths of their own being - this is for you. If you desire to be radically, unapologetically, and shamelessly YOU while facilitating - sister, this is for you.
How do I know if this training isn't for me?
If you're looking for a purely technical experience of 'how to's', this training might not be for you. This training will give you the framework for facilitation while encouraging you to dive into your own work to find your OWN answers. The most powerful wisdom will always be what comes from inside of you - if you're not ready to open up to that connection, this might not be for you. If bugs, sweat, and sometimes tears feel too intimidating for you - taking this immersive training in the middle of the jungle may not be the best fit for you!
