“I am so looking forward to this next step in my business as an RTA-Certified Facilitator and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting this amazing Facilitator Certification Program together. I have been wanting to do more groups and retreats and this has definitely given me the tools I was missing. Thank you!!”  Karin Haddy, health coach, St. Croix, British Virgin Islands www.butterflyhwc.com

“Your RTA-Certified Facilitator Training opportunity appeared- as the best things often do- at exactly the right time. Renee, your self-care programs are impressive and much needed— particularly for those women who don’t realize the many ways that self-care will improve their lives as well as the lives of all they touch. You have attracted an amazing team of  Facilitators and I’m excited for this opportunity to join the community and reach more women who will benefit from Personal Renewal Groups. After a few days of reflection and revisiting my business plan, I’m confident that this will be a ‘win’ for all of us. I graduated from Coachville’s certification program several years ago and have been successfully coaching 1:1. Now I’m ready to move into a group coaching business model.”   Susan Linnard, professional career coach, Tyler, TX

“I am very grateful for Renee Trudeau’s work. I took her New Way of Being class this past year; I really enjoyed it and always look forward to her newsletters.

I am super excited about starting a Personal Renewal Group in my area for many reasons. First, I would love to connect with other parents in this way. Also, I have a community acupuncture practice that I just started and I would love to draw more parents who are seeking self-care to my practice. And I just completed my training as a parenting coach and would love to combine all three practices into a program to support parents in being the peaceful guides they want to be for their children. I am very excited about bringing my vision to fruition and am seeking to learn exactly what I am teaching in the process – raising and teaching my girls in a peaceful, playful home while pursuing my personal dreams, which is requiring extreme self-care and balance.  Thank you for the RTA Facilitator Program to support what me in doing just this!”

“As a CTI grad, I’ve loved incorporating Renee Trudeau’s PRG Facilitator training program into my coaching practice—learning the art and science of group coaching and how to lead retreats was the perfect complement to individual client work. The online training was easy, inexpensive and I was able to begin leading groups right away.  Facilitating Personal Renewal Groups/retreats has allowed me and the women in my community to grow in profound ways.”

“A friend introduced me to The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal when my kids were young. The messages in the book really hit home and validated my conflicted feelings as a new mom. The pure blissful love. And, the frustration. I immediately signed up for one of Renee’s weekend self-renewal retreats to learn more and was shocked to meet so many women (ages 25-65) that were also struggling with the concept of self-care and worthiness. After seeing the impact this retreat made on the attendees, I was inspired to become an RTA-Certified Facilitator so I could help be an advocate for this powerful work.  I’m a SAHM, I’ve been leading groups for years and am still blown away by the depth and connection I’ve witnessed as I watch us all grow a little stronger, less resentful, more confident and increasingly joyful. Facilitating and participating in the PRGs has had a profound impact on me and I love seeing the ripple effect this creates. Whether you’ve been leading groups for years, or are new to group coaching, the PRG Facilitator training includes all the materials, support and resources you need to successfully launch your own group and begin making a positive change in your community. I am so grateful for this program and opportunity!”

“As a childbirth educator, I couldn’t wait to become a PRG Facilitator. This new tool/certification allows me to serve women after the childbearing year, and continue the work of helping them to empower themselves as mothers and as women. I love being able to provide teachings and resources to help women learn to care for and nourish themselves as they continue to evolve as individuals and as parents.”

“I love working one-on-one with clients, but was really ready to expand professionally. Becoming a PRG Facilitator has had an enormous impact on my business and career. I have learned how to be truly successful at group coaching, facilitating retreats and leading teleclasses. I’ve even gotten comfortable enough to co-lead a retreat at Kripalu Yoga & Wellness Center on self-care and I now regularly lead half and one-day retreats for women in the Minneapolis area based on many of the teachings from The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal. I am very grateful for the impact this training/mentoring support from Renee Trudeau & Associates has had on my professional success and personal growth.”

“Being a PRG Facilitator and becoming a part of the Renee Trudeau & Associates global community has had a profound effect on me personally and professionally. Besides being a phenomenal business/marketing tool and a great way to grow my client base and visibility, I’ve received support and guidance on leading retreats, creating authenticity and sacredness in a group coaching environment and have learned strategies for how to more effectively run my business so I work less and experience more! A small investment for a huge return. Thank you!”

“I started coaching a mom tonight based on a lead I received from another PRG Facilitator. It’s so rewarding to know I’m part of a community that brings a sense of hope and excitement to moms who want to reclaim, rejuvenate, and rebalance” their lives.”  Thank you for your support!

“Thank you!  My groups are going well and I appreciate all your support, your openness and good will. I have never worked with a group that so warmly embraces each member. After my first PRG meeting:

  • I felt delight in the preparation of space – all the scents, colors, sounds and textures.
  • I felt trepidation that no one would show up.
  • I felt less of my extreme self consciousness as I declared my vulnerability.
  • I felt joy when the sharing among the pairs was real and authentic.
  • I felt accomplishment at facing my fears.”    — DeAnne Pearson, career coach  www.DeliberateCareers.com

“Being a Personal Renewal Group Facilitator feeds me on SO MANY levels: emotionally, spiritually, financially and intellectually. The experience has helped me become kinder and gentler to myself and in turn, has made me a more compassionate, insightful and accessible coach to my clients. There is no doubt, that leading groups has had a significant impact on my business and my ability to attract my ideal clients (many in my group have become coaching clients). A nominal investment has come back to me ten-fold. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the PRG Facilitators community. It has changed who I am in the world, forever.”

“The choice to become a PRG facilitator was a natural extension of my career as a psychotherapist and life coach. The program allows me to provide a wonderful resource to offer my existing clients who are mothers. The power of groups as an avenue for support, insight, and personal growth is well documented, and a Personal Renewal Group is a non-threatening way for clients to experience this first hand. Being a facilitator also gives me an effective way to build my practice by attracting new people to my practice and increasing my visibility in the community. As a mental health provider, my interest and passion is in helping people, not marketing. One of the wonderful things about the PRG program is that almost all of the marketing is done for you through the website, the national publicity, and online resources. It’s a small business owner’s dream to find such a quality program and proven business model that requires very little investment of time or money. As a trained facilitator, I have access to countless resources through the website. And I’ve met fantastic women who are PRG facilitators in my community with whom I can connect and share resources. It’s been a wonderful decision for me.”

“Why should ‘I’ become a facilitator? I wondered after being introduced to the Personal Renewal Group material. But, something kept nudging me to get trained, even though I was feeling uncertain. Ultimately, I followed my heart and will forever be changed by this experience, but my change is small compared to the broad impact this movement will create. It is inspiring to be a PRG Facilitator and to share this material with other women and journey with them as they renew their spirit and find joy. I’ve found that in sharing the work from “The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal,” with others, my own personal and spiritual growth are blooming and taking deep roots. Becoming a Facilitator has also given me the opportunity to strengthen my leadership and communication skills and the experience has been both nurturing and rewarding on many levels. I am honored to be a part of this movement and encourage others to open their hearts and accept the nudging to empower women in their community on this journey.”

“As a new RTA Facilitator, a childbirth educator since 1998 and having a degree in Maternal Child Health– Lactation Consulting, I work closely with many new moms and I know how quick we are to neglect our own self-care.  I also really sense the need to offer moms a place to go that’s not a “mommy-support-group,” but rather a place where they can shift the focus to themselves as women –group offering themes of personal renewal and life balance.  Renee’s Personal Renewal Groups fit the bill perfectly!”

“Over a year ago I began my own business coaching corporate leaders. The change in my life balance and career has been very rewarding and yet, I’ve been left wondering if I’m bringing everything I can to the table with my clients? Then I read The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal in one sitting and a dear friend/former colleague suggested we both get trained and co-facilitate a PRG. This opportunity has been rewarding in so many ways. I am a PRG Facilitator and a participant – as with all my clients – I am learning and growing along with the circle. I have met extraordinary women with diverse backgrounds and experiences, making me feel more connected to the community than ever before. It’s simply wonderful to see the expressions and hear the voices of people who have an ‘aha!’ moment and thus become less fearful or alone in their existence. Becoming trained and leading PRGs feels like a calling. By bringing women together to share and support one another, we are supporting the oneness of the universe- this is no small thing. The Guide and PRG format are perfect vehicles to lead and participate in the world in the most meaningful way. By supporting one another in our journey inward, there is ultimately a positive and powerful affect on society as a whole.”

“Becoming an RTA-Trained Personal Renewal Group Facilitator has allowed me to take my personal and spiritual growth to a whole new level. Facilitating a PRG is truly an incredible gift. I love being able to work with other moms and watch them grow and learn how to take better care of themselves. Seeing a mother finally taking time to reconnect with herself is truly magical, and is one of the great privileges of being a PRG facilitator. You truly get to experience being a part of something bigger than yourself each time you interact with the moms in your own PRG. The RTA Training really helped prepare me emotionally and logistically to lead the best PRGs I can, and to create a richer experience for the mothers in the group. It gave me the confidence and experience to enthusiastically step in to my role as PRG Facilitator. The training also allowed me the opportunity to connect with other RTA-Trained PRG facilitators to share resources and questions. Being able to tap in to expertise and support from around the country has been incredibly powerful.”

“PRG has brought me a special kind of peace and joy and a renewed sense of my own inner wisdom. The program is a catalyst for daily insight and growth, and has allowed me to rediscover my true self by giving myself ‘back to me.’ Being a PRG facilitator allows me to share this wonderful work with other mothers who are looking to bring more balance, serenity and self-love into their lives. I love being part of the ever-widening circle of women who are changing their worlds from the inside out. No question the journey has made me a better wife, mother, daughter and friend.”

“The PRG Facilitator Training was definitely worth the investment! I got way more than my money’s worth (plus the fee for the training is tax-deductible as a self-employment business expense). I cannot imagine being more equipped and prepared for facilitating Personal Renewal Groups. The training was very well conceived and carried out and proved to be both life affirming and changing for me on a personal, professional and spiritual level. As a stay-at-home mom for the past six years, becoming self-employed as a RTA-Trained PRG Facilitator is a rewarding and prosperous new venture for me. Helping other mothers honor and remember who they are and discover self-renewal from the inside out is so fulfilling for me. I also enjoy all the incredible benefits of being a part of this special group of fellow facilitator moms. The friendships, networking and sharing of ideas and information with each other is absolutely priceless. I enthusiastically and highly recommend participating in the online or in-person training to receive your own enriching designation as a RTA-Trained PRG Facilitator!”
