BD101 Training for Trainers - May 2022


Lecture and presentation, large and small group discussion: these intellectual efforts are only one dimension of a holistically conceived curriculum.  Integral and primary to BD 101 is the establishing a circle of mutual respect, good faith and a commitment to deep caring, which is able to sufficiently ‘hold’ the group through both the painful and joyful revelations that arise in the course of the workshop.

The intuitive is honored along side the intellectual.  We especially tend to the body in the midst of this transformational learning. A massage therapist is on the BD101 staff during the course of the workshop, providing one-on-one sessions.

Music and expressive movement, yoga and qi gong, as well as activities out of doors, are integrated into each day’s schedule. Care is taken to select workshop environs that are comfortable, where nourishing food is served. Each aspect of the intensive is designed to support, in as holistic a manner as possible, the deep work of the participants.

What Folks Are Saying....

"My expectations and intentions were exceeded. I gained a deeper understanding of the frameworks and how the pieces fit together as a whole.So, my head got it better than ever before. I came in hoping for a gradual awakening and came out more awake than I can ever remember."​

~TfT Participant January 2015


"Thank you dear Niyonu!Yesterday I journaled about all the things I learned last week that I didn't want to forget, and I had a three page list! And that was before I read back through my notes.You are helping us all become our better selves and teachers."

​~TfT Participant October 2017


"I came into this clear that whether I wanted to be or not, I have been called to do this work. Part of the gift (of BD101) for me has been the support to be in that truth."​​
