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 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 development!  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 the most thorough training we have ever put out there.  It’s an online course with in-person options. In this training you integrate and more deeply implement everything you learned in the Fundamentals of NL so that you can better support the transformation of your clients through the power of deep connection and relationship. This training takes you deeper into your own healing journey, and helps you to embody the NL principles through continued education and guided practice over the course of 15 weeks.

You will learn: 

  • How your own attachment and trauma history impacts your work
  • How to more effectively facilitate sessions
  • How to embrace and embody the nuance of relationship building between you, your horses, and your clients

 

Plus, you’ll also get access to our training group forum, CE credits, weekly video lessons and assignments, 15 hours of LIVE zoom calls with your instructors and colleagues, and one more completed requirement towards achieving NL certification. Check it out and sign up here

 

The next course starts August 22nd!  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 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.  

NL Certification fees include NL 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 get discounts on exclusive online courses, Building Your Resilience offerings, and events including our highly-anticipated annual conference.  Additionally, a variety of FREE online events are available each month for NL members.  Members can participate in population specific Mastermind Groups––connect with others in the field who support the population you also serve.  This is an opportunity for peer connection, support, and supervision. Members get opportunities to speak with NL founders (including me!) and trainers each month.  Connect in community and continue learning. . . together!  Learn about the many benefits of membership and sign up here

Certification students also get a practitioner listing on our website to help clients find you.  The practitioner listing is only available to those who are NL Certified or on the certification path.

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!  

 

#3  Sign up for our upcoming webinar, “How NL Certification is a Path Towards Personal and Professional Growth.”  

Certification is certainly a process – it is a journey we go on WITH you. I will share what makes our certification process unique, what you can expect when you embark on the NL certification journey, and which steps you’ll take to get started.  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!  Sign up 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 our upcoming webinar called “How NL Certification is a Path Towards Personal and Professional Growth,” I will likely chat with the “I’m all in” folks 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

I’m still deciding if NL is right for me

We know you have many options when choosing where to invest your time, energy, and financial resources––thank you for engaging with us! 

There are many amazing training opportunities in this field.  Over twelve 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.
