Frequently Asked Questions

Motherhood can be an isolating experience. This is why The Mother’s Guide is designed for women to use in a small group setting of 6-10 women. Typically, a Personal Renewal Group will meet one evening a month for six months (the program is designed to be yearlong, but participants have the option of re-enrolling after the initial six-month session). While you can gain value from working on the themes and exercises on your own or even with a friend, being with a group and sharing from your heart, listening to others and having your feelings validated is a powerful experience. This process is what facilitates a change in how you act and feel on a daily basis.

Additionally, you get to tap The Amazing Power of Groups! RTA-Certified Facilitators share that group work is particularly powerful because it:

  • Provides the opportunity for members to receive validation and decreases feelings of isolation.
  • Provides the opportunity for connection around shared experiences and regular, ongoing emotional support.
  • Provides a safe venue and an opportunity to be a part of an intentional circle and take your own “work” deeper.
  • Challenges you to open your heart and accelerates personal and spiritual learning/growth.
  • Provides a place of unconditional acceptance and helps members see new possibilities.
  • Provides a nurturing and empowering setting for reflection and meaningful dialogue.

With a strong basis/focus on self-care, life balance and supporting members in “reconnection with self,” PRG meetings were designed to allow women the opportunity to explore and nurture their “inner life.”

This is accomplished through a relaxed, but structured format which includes independent guided journaling and reflection, one-on-one dialogue, small group sharing and group insight sharing. Depending on the monthly theme, other activities such as creating “I am” collages, vision maps or guided visualizations or relaxations may also take place. Members say they love the format of PRGs as the meetings provide a wonderful balance of sharing/reflection and encouragement to take action to create the life you want. They are different from typical support groups, in that the focus is very forward thinking: what do you want your life to look like 90 days from now? And, members are usually (gently) challenged to think about and/or take action around the monthly themes.

The environment of PRGs is designed to be nurturing, supportive and empowering. One of the reasons the groups are so popular is PRGs provide mothers with the opportunity to take meaningful, heartfelt conversations deeper than their normal day-to-day schedules allow. Click here to preview a sampling of what resources, templates and coaching are covered in the online training.

In essence, we teach you how to successfully do group coaching (a sought-after skill you can use throughout your career/life) and retreat facilitation. The training curriculum and templates created for the RTA Facilitators’ Lounge were personally developed by veteran teacher/coach, Renée Trudeau, who shares her secrets and wisdom from her 25 years in leadership development, group coaching, mindfulness and meditation, and all she’s learned designing and facilitating women’s circles and retreats for Omega Institute, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Esalen Institute, 1440 Multiversity and more. Her insights, tools and exercises will support you on your personal journey as a group facilitator, save you countless hours in research, preparation and stress and help you to have a more enjoyable, successful and prosperous group experience. Read more about Why Get Trained here. See question #4 for additional benefits including “what’s covered” in the training.

See all of the benefits here.

The self-paced online training provides information to help prepare you emotionally, mentally and spiritually to lead Personal Renewal Groups/retreats and resources, outlines and tools to help you promote, recruit, prepare for and facilitate your group so it runs smoothly and is an empowering and enjoyable experience for all. You’ll also have access to mentors, additional life management articles and resources to support your PRG members while they’re enrolled in your group.

The RTA-Certified Facilitator Training is a self-paced, self-directed online program that you can complete from the comfort of your own home! No travel is required, although many RTA-Certified Facilitators have found it immensely helpful to experience one of Renee’s self-renewal retreats. Because this program is self-paced, only you can determine exactly how long it will take to work through all the materials. The average time it takes to go through the training, exercises and review all the resources and recorded classes can vary from 1 to 4 weeks, depending on whether you’re already working full-time. You can list your group on our site today to start recruiting PRG members, take in the training at a time that is convenient for you and start planning for the launch of your first PRG! Read more about the benefits of this highly affordable program here.

Women just like you! Many coaches, consultants, women in the healing arts fields — therapists, social workers, doulas and birthing professionals, nurses, women’s health specialists, parent educators, NIA/yoga teachers, women’s empowerment advocates and related disciplines — are particularly drawn to leading Personal Renewal Groups/retreats. However, many women who simply have a passion for empowering and supporting other women and mothers are also enjoying great success as RTA-Certified Facilitators. Click here to meet RTA Facilitators worldwide.

We advocate RTA-Certified Facilitators charge between $240-300/person for a six month session. The amount will depend on your experience level leading groups, your professional background (ex: if you’re a therapist or coach) and your geographic location. Most new RTA-Certified Facilitators charge $240/person for a six-month session when first starting out. Generally, there are 6-12 women in each PRG.

You lead one meeting a month for 2.5 hours and send out 1-2 emails a month to touch base with your group members. In general, you’ll put in 5-7 hours/month depending on how you’re running your program (this time lessens, the more experience you get leading PRGs). You’ll also put in time upfront posting the flyer online and finding the space. Some RTA-Certified Facilitators are leading multiple groups each month, some are leading groups at workplaces (for questions/clarification on how our RTA corporate program works, contact us) and some are offering retreats or Days of Renewal using the material in the book and charging $99-149/person for these.

Yes. To lead Personal Renewal Groups, use the copyrighted material and exercises in the book and charge for your groups, you must become a RTA-Certified Facilitator.

Please note that under United States and international copyright laws if you charge members to join a Personal Renewal Group but are not officially trained through Renee Trudeau & Associates, this usage of the book constitutes infringement upon the intellectual property rights of the author. To clarify, if you lead a FREE “book club” based on The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal, that is fine. However, if you desire to charge group members for their participation, you must be an active RTA-Certified Facilitator through Renee Trudeau & Associates. Additionally, each person who facilitates Personal Renewal Groups must have their own individual training membership.

No! None of us have all of our “stuff handled,” and by sharing our own vulnerabilities, we actually inspire those around us to do the same. Your job as a Facilitator is to create a safe, empowering “space” to help facilitate insight, sharing and connection among your group members. Your courage and willingness to do this is motivating in and of itself—you’re also in the group to learn more about yourself and explore what your needs/desires are, just like your group members.

Yes! But we recommend you have prior group facilitation experience or start by leading PRGs for mothers first so you become familiar with the material. The topics covered in the book are not parent-specific and translate easily to all audiences.

Sometimes members from a specific area of a city or region will sign up for the same PRG, but typically PRGs are made up of women who have never met before. Women who are interested in personal growth, life balance or the topic of self-renewal are drawn to sign up for PRGs, and are always surprised and delighted by how connected they feel to the other members, how freely group members open up to one another and how powerful it is to be in a group with women from various life stages and backgrounds who all deeply resonate around similar issues and themes, such as the ones outlined in The Mother’s Guide.

The RTA-Certified Facilitator Membership allows you to use the materials outlined in the Facilitators’ Lounge and in the book to lead PRGs/retreats for the public for fun or as part of your small business. RTA-Certified Facilitator use of intellectual property does not allow for or include leading groups within companies or organizations (example: for a hospital system, IBM or the American Heart Association). Renee Trudeau & Associates has an established corporate/organizational Personal Renewal Group program where we work directly with companies to develop these customized plans depending on the number of employees they have and their needs. Click here to contact our Facilitator Liaison to discuss partnering with us on an organizational/corporate PRG program or if you have any questions along these lines. Renee Trudeau & Associates has strict guidelines for intellectual property use. When marketing your Personal Renewal Groups, you must refer to them as a “Personal Renewal Group” and include in the material that they are based on The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal by Renee Trudeau.

Due to the low-cost and the nature of the program, we do not offer refunds for annual membership fees associated with becoming a RTA-Certified Facilitator. Based on feedback we have received from RTA-Certified Facilitators, we are confident that the content is value-rich and extremely helpful to anyone deciding to lead PRGs as part of a business or as a community service initiative. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email or call us at 512/459-6700.
