Now that you’ve completed your Fundamentals Training, you may be wondering. . . Where Do I Go From Here? There are a variety of options that you may choose from in order to best meet your learning goals. We want to stay connected - in whichever way suits your needs!
We have found that most people fall into one of three categories:
#1 I’m all in!
This is my home, these are my peeps – no doubt I’m all in! Certification? YES! Conferences? I’ll be there! NL Products to support my practice? Sign me up! Webinars, youtube, free stuff? I’m watching all of it!
#2 I’m all in! BUT I need to take it slow.
I believe in NL, want to be a part of this community, and want to keep learning. #1 is just a bit too “ALL IN” for me. ;)
#3 I’m not quite sure if NL is right for me OR my resources are really limited right now.
I really enjoyed my training, but I’m still deciding if I want to delve deeper with NL. Or I definitely enjoyed my training, but currently my ability to invest time and money is limited.
I’M ALL IN!
First of all, WELCOME!
I’m a bit biased, but I think our community is the best! We’re passionate! We’re committed to our personal growth and our professional practice! Together we’re creating a world where connection and the value of healthy relationships is seen and felt in everything we do! What more can I say?
So, here’s what you need to do next:
#1 Register for the upcoming NL Intensive training. The NL Intensive is our NEWEST OFFERING and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s the most thorough training we have ever put out there. It’s a 15-week online course with in-person options. Check it out and sign up here.
The next course starts August 23rd! Keep in mind that spaces are limited, so if you know for sure you want in please sign up soon.
#2 If you haven’t already, sign up for NL Professional membership where you can access HOURS and HOURS of videos and courses. . . RICH online learning until your heart’s content! Our videos were created with you and your clients in mind – fill learning gaps, lean into the nuance of this work, get CE credits, and begin to specialize! NL members also gain access to a private FB group and other free offerings to connect in community and continue learning. Learn about the many benefits of membership and sign up here.
#3 Sign up for Natural Lifemanship Professional Certification. No matter your profession or background, Natural Lifemanship certification offers a self-paced and self-organized path for individuals and teams looking to dig deep and transform their work. Trainings, consult calls, and video submissions can be done at your pace, in flexible order. At NL, we prioritize principle-based thinking and personal growth - meaning our certification process is a relationship between you and our wonderful trainers...not a list of tasks to check off.
If you are ready to commit to this process, we will support you every step of the way!
After you sign up you will get access to a “certification course” in your student dashboard so you can start tracking your progress. You will also receive a PDF document with very clear direction about certification paths and requirements. Sign up here!
#4 Watch the recording of a webinar in which I walked folks through the nuts and bolts of the certification process. Certification is certainly a process – it is a journey we go on WITH you. It may feel a little daunting at first, but I promise that this feeling doesn’t last – before you know it you’ll be gaining ground and feeling more and more confident and competent in the work you do to make the world a better place! Watch the recording here.
I’m all in, but I need to take it slow. . .
First of all, thank you for listening to yourself and responding to what you need. :)
During the webinar recording I mentioned above in #4, I spoke with the “I’m all in” group to make sure they pace themselves and allow time for learning. This model is a way of being in the world. Which requires a pause. A breath. Movement. And more pauses and breaths. Embodiment takes time.
Those of you in this category have many options, but I would recommend you choose one of the following two options:
#1 Register for the upcoming NL Intensive training. This training really allows you the time and pace needed to deeply embody this work. It’s the most thorough training we have ever developed -- a 15-week online course with in-person options. Check it out and sign up here.
We’re pretty excited about this NEW offering!
#2 OR sign up for Basic or Professional Membership for learning that is 100% self-paced and brings you into a community that grows and learns together. You will gain access to HOURS of videos and courses. Our videos were created with you and your clients in mind – fill learning gaps, lean into the nuance, and begin to specialize! NL members also gain access to a private FB group and other free offerings to connect and continue learning. Learn about the many benefits of membership and sign up here.
Additionally, our previously recorded webinar might be informative for you. I went over the nuts and bolts of the certification process, so you can begin to think about when/if you might want to start the certification process with NL. It’s a big commitment, so, of course, take your time. Watch the recording here.
I’m still deciding if NL is right for me
OR I have limited time and financial resources right now
First of all, thank you for engaging with us!
There are many amazing training opportunities in this field. Over ten years ago when we started NL there were significantly fewer options, so it was easier to make a decision. But with diversity this field has grown and IMPROVED. It’s such an exciting time! We offer many low to no-cost options so you can get to know us before jumping in!
Additionally, we are committed to equipping you for success so you can effectively implement your training for the purpose of supporting others in their healing journeys.
