Documentary Soul Coach training in Portugal
In this documentary you can hear the experiences of former participants and Tanja Faber will explain what the training Soul Coach involves.
The training is facilitated in the Algarve in Portugal in two different venues.
I felt the training was paced very well. Each lesson/gathering was a solid building block for the next one. The instruction was very clear and communicated with love. There were plenty of opportunities to ask questions and give feedback as we went along. The training was conducted in an atmosphere of invitation and total acceptance with good boundaries that created a profound feeling of safety. Everything was explained really well so that you knew why certain techniques are used and the theory underpinning it.
I have learned that everything is ok and to trust my own and other peoples processes. I will definitely take this forward with me when working with my own clients and with my own self development.
I learned so much about becoming a guide and gained experienced in guiding, supporting and helping others. I want to run my own retreats and the course was beyond my expectations of what it taught me about transitioning from a participant myself to being able to use my intuition and skills to care for others as a guide. I believe I am much better equipped to care, share and love for others within workhops and ceremonies.
Wow. This 9 days retreat has been the most healing days in my whole life. I have been in many trainings over the past years, but this one was over the top. It was AMAZING, and I want the whole world to know about this.The whole setting was just amazing and by that I mean the place, the guides, the facilitators, the brewer, the participants, the weather, the atmosphere and the medicine. And by medicine I do not just mean Ayahuasca, which was amazing but I also mean the "medicine" which is inside us and around us: the breath and the way our body responds to the oxygen, and the way our body releases old stuck energy from and with the oxygen and Ayahuasca. This is just an amazing teamwork from the nature which we all areNilofar (The Netherlands):The training was very intense. I liked the fact that we had a double role in each part of the program. We were able to guide others in all the methods but also we were able to undergo each technique ourselves. This really helps to fully understand everything. What I have gained with it is for sure how to help others. It doesn't feel like re-inventing the wheel, we just apply the proven techniques and work further on that.Maria (USA):
I was VERY impressed with the variety of exercises and workshops we did to confront the tendency to feel exposed and vulnerable. The different things we did as a group and individually was challenging at times but incredibly revealing of my tendencies and also how far I have come with myself in all my healing/Ayu work. I will use some of these exercises with my own clients!
It was amazing – thank you. I saw on my voyage that my life is now in 2 distinct parts – my life before this training and my life afterwards.
The training was a wonderful experience overall and I learned a lot about the work of guiding. I learned that you have to be very aware of your own process, as you are likely to be triggered by all sorts of things that the travellers and even the other guides might do. You have to be able to look after yourself and hold clear boundaries and whenever an impulse arises to make contact with a voyager you have to always check whose benefit it is for (this is a fundamental guideline that Tanja emphasised, for good reason). You have to connect with your intuition and be prepared to get it 'wrong', which you inevitably will at times.
The training was just amazing. I learned so much through the teachings and the hands on experience. I liked all of the different parts of the program and they fit perfectly into the program. I am now more in touch with my intuition and understand more what it means to tap into someone’s energy in order to try to support that person and feel what he or she needs. I am more aware of how important it is to allow and welcome everything that is, so that a safe space is created. Only when we feel safe, transformation can occur.
This training was amazing. The different practices worked synergistically and the group was wonderful. The alternance between guiding and voyaging was particularly useful.
About the trainers
Trainer, ceremony leader, co-owner / founder and organizer at The Sacred Voyage & Kinetics Communicatie
About 16 years ago the path of personal development and consciousness expansion started for me. Because of the various burnouts I had, I felt “this cannot continue like this. This makes me sick. I have learned to listen to what feeds me and what makes me happy. And slowly let go of all things that no longer serve me. ” A path that wasn’t easy. Because what is it that nourishes me, makes me happy and fulfills my life? What do I have to do in this life? What is my calling?
I let go of my salaried work and took a sabatical for 1.5 years. To feel what I really want with my (working) life. Something with people, that was clear, but what? Because Lars then carried out his childhood dream and wrote a book, The Sacred Voyage, our company The Sacred Voyage was created. Here I was able to fully use my experience and talent to organize, administer, customer contacts and social connection.
In experiencing (from 2004) (holotropic) breathwork in both (external) training and sessions with Lars Faber and in our own organization, discovering my inner world with also medicine plants, I have gone on the path of expanding consciousness. Found out what serves and no longer serves me. What keeps me healthy, what brings me to who I really am.
I have a business background (organizational science, University of Maastricht), a secretary training (Schoevers), followed international training weeks in the Czech Republic (at Grof Transpersonal Training, holotropic breathwork) and did the 3 year Biodanza training. Also followed many training courses and workshops in the field of Voice Dialogue, intuitive development, focusing, tantra, Emotional Focusing Therapy (EFT), Queencode (at Alison Armstrong in Dallas, USA), Heartconnection, Wheel of Consent (Lisbon, Betty Martin), international training Full Body Dearmouring but most of all a lot of (life) experience.
The most important learning point for me was that I can follow my own way. Not as I was taught (in a certain way), but above all I was allowed to find my own way in all the knowledge and experience that I have gained over the years and create my own work in it. And from perspective Heartdancing was born. A passion that feeds me. A form of moving / dancing and connecting with yourself, with your own body, becoming aware of how and why you do things the way you do them, connecting in a playful way with others, from open-mindedness, playfulness, liveliness. To (re) discover the sparkle in your own being, to make the connection to your heart again. And from there in depth to be able to meet yourself even more in everything that lives and what prevents you from really being who you are. This is my calling, this is my mission in this life. To reconnect people with themselves in this way, from softness, from consciousness.
Currently I lead the year training Soul Coach of De Gewijde Reis, I facilitate international retreats in the field of expanding consciousness, connecting with your own essence and healing from trauma. I use the methods from the training courses that I followed, but especially the methods developed by Lars in The Sacred Voyage, such as Core Wound breathwork, Soul Retrieval, Sacred Language of the Heart, Light of Compassion and ceremonies with medicine plants. And of course my own passion Heartdancing in which I have more than 10 years of experience. My work takes place in the Netherlands and Portugal.
In Portugal I facilitate, together with Lars Faber, the international Soul Coach training in different modules (9 day and 6 day training) as well as the Rebirth of the Soul retreats (5 day retreats). Every now and then I work with co-trainers to transfer even more knowledge and experience in a broader spectrum. And all with the aim: teach people to reconnect with themselves, learn to (re) meet themselves and discover their full potential and start living it!
In the past 16 years I have been able to support and guide more than 10.000 people in their process of healing and reconnecting with themselves.
My strength is in the connection and mirroring and I am seen as an example in teach what you preach. Others experience me as loving, authentic, grounded and genuinely involved, a great heart full of love.
Trainer, breathwork coach, co-owner & founder of The Sacred Voyage and Kinetics Communicatie, writer, producer, musician, founder and owner of The Breathwork Coach.
My passion currently lies in breathwork, producing and composing music, creating online training and meditations.
About fifteen years ago the adventure of the Breathwork started for me. I was burned out, depressed and addicted to just about anything you could be addicted to. In short: tired of life. In France I discovered Holotropic Breathwork (the international breathing school of Dr. Stanislav Grof) during a week long Breathwork Training. That changed my life enormously. Back in the Netherlands, I immediately started working with breathwork, first of all with myself. I did daily sessions in our attic in The Hague and went through in-depth processes, which gradually helped me to heal myself, become more vital and eventually made me the responsible father and entrepreneur I wanted to be and am.
I have been able to supervise more than 10,000 people in the past fifteen years. In the meantime I followed courses, training and workshops in Breathwork, Shamanism, Voice Dialogue, Focusing, Biodanza, Voice Liberation, Brainspotting, Bodywork and Consent. That made me more and more free to guide others. Especially the voice expression is invaluable in breathwork: if you don't dare to express your own voice and emotions, you cannot convincingly encourage others to do so. That became the essence of my personal process, and that of guiding others: freeing yourself from shame and guilt, finding and freeing old pains and daring to live from your essence. Dare to show and express yourself as you are. Expressing your innermost being, your strength and your vulnerability, your humor, your fear, your zest for life and your dark sides. At least that is my personal path, I have written seven books about it. Always researching, always humble enough to keep learning and powerful enough to help and educate others.
I am a co trainer in a few weekends in the Dutch year training Soul Coach, I have facilitated a year training Rebirth of the Soul (2 years ago) and will soon start a year training as a breath coach within my other company The Breathwork Coach. Together with Tanja I facilitate as well the retreats Rebirth of the Soul, Magical Child and the Summer retreat Living the life of your dreams. I am very experienced and know the depth of the work like no other. I am experienced by participants as a teacher, guide and rock, who has supported many people and helps to take new paths in their lives.
I have already been able to train and educate hundreds of supervisors in the Netherlands and abroad. I really love seeing others grow and flourish.
In the documentary The Rebirth of the Soul you can see both Lars and Tanja as a trainer and learn more about their vision on this work.
