The mission of Walking Our Talk is to nourish individual accomplishment and build community through a culture of trust, connection, and support. Yet, in order to forward this mission we need leaders, women willing to go beyond their own fears – to lead themselves by stepping into facilitation, women determined to examine the patterns that have blocked their own expression and full-out living, women who have been so transformed by the Walking Our Talk circle movement that they want to bring this transformational experience to others. This commitment to women’s empowerment is why WOT offers these facilitator trainings. 


Over the last 13 years we have crafted a structure and context that we’ve found to work most effectively in supporting women’s personal evolution as well as the completion of their projects. Moving through the segments of each week’s circle, women learn to cultivate loving presence, go deeper into their own process, and share and hold space respectfully. We will ask how we invite that development as a leader/facilitator.

By sharing our authentic selves with others in a structure that ensures a loving and safe place, we are not only building our own confidence and personal power, we are also sharing our gifts with the world and inspiring others to take the leap for themselves.

This WOT Training will gather up to 8 women of all ages, diverse economic and social backgrounds. Just as when you sit in a WOT circle, this Facilitator Training will be a place where trust, compassion, and creativity rule, and where you will begin to feel the power and potential of a space of belonging and care that is unique in our modern virtual culture. Feeling an almost immediate sense of safety, you naturally open more vulnerably to others and build bonds that support your thriving. Differences will melt and the truth of our undeniable connection will reign.


Founder, Mary Campbell and experienced facilitator Arti Roots Ross will host this summer's training with guest facilitators of Berkshire circles bringing their experience for various parts of each day's schedule.


At the conclusion of the training you will articulate a vision for yourself for the autumn circle season to come and buddy with your fellow facilitators-in-training in the circle (FITs) to support you as you bring your intention into reality.
