Leadership & Facilitator Training
The Leadership and Training course ensures that you gain a sound understanding of how to successfully design a training program for groups or individuals.
This training has a very practical approach and real situations are simulated through ‘play games’ and discussed for a deeper understanding of group dynamics and individual’s behavior and reactions.
The benefits of the Leadership training, has a very broad application. Whether you are a yoga teacher, personal trainer, presenter of corporate programs, business leader, or a parent, this program will enable you to be clear and honest in your communication and promote a change within a group and its individuals.
This training is so much more than learning a technique, as it brings the student to a place of Self-discovery in a holistic way. It will give you the capacity to recognize your emotions and express them appropriately which helps you become a better leader.
Having trusted people in a safe and caring environment throughout this course, you can turn to for encouragement and support, will boost your resilience in challenging situations and make you stronger as a facilitator.
The Leadership and Facilitation course at High Spirits Retreat is only offered a limited number of times throughout the year and only to selected participants.
With over 30 years of continued practice and experience Mette brings to this course her passion, expertise and knowledge.

"During 2009 I had the most fantastic opportunity to attend Facilitator Training (FT) with Mette at High Spirits. I was already assisting other facilitators prior to this on ‘Spirit of Woman’ and Ka Huna training Levels 1&2, 3, 5 and 6. However, it was not until I did my FT that I truly stepped up and into my own personal power as a leader.
The benefits of this training go far beyond just being able to stand in front of a room full of students and teach massage, and have had a profound effect on many aspects of my life that I never would have imagined. Personal power, just what does that mean? Power of the person, power of 1, power of me, becoming empowered, realising that yes, maybe I can make a difference. By first realising my goal, my path or direction, by accepting myself, by loving myself, I can manifest my dreams and step over those long held limiting beliefs I've been carrying around forever.
One of my life long ambitions has always been to feel the equal to anyone else on the planet, to be able to engage them in conversation without fear and without those "you are not good enough" thoughts. After FT my self confidence has grown enormously and I am surprising myself in how relaxed I am when talking to others I may hold in high esteem whereas before I would not have approached them.
Another spin off happened at a friend's wake after his funeral, which was being held in a big barn of a hall. Everyone was standing around the walls holding their plate of food and not saying much when I got an idea, stood up and invited everyone to join in and learn some body percussion. Within 10 minutes everyone was laughing and talking to one another and sharing heartfelt stories and memories of our deceased friend.
I am still reaping the benefits of FT in so many ways and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to embrace their inner power and "walk their talk" with confidence, calmness and an ability to laugh at themselves."
