Who can become a Living Compass leader or facilitator?

Anyone who can offer compassionate listening with sincere and gentle encouragement can fulfill this role. Living Compass is designed to provide a space to decipher what changes people want to make and then allowing time and space for them to discover how to make those changes. At the core, the Living Compass facilitator will help to create a space for participants to become the experts in creating their best life and to take concrete steps to make that a reality.
What happens at a Living Compass CWA training?
A Living Compass training is both a training and a wellness retreat experience. The best way to learn how to facilitate and use the Living Compass tools and programs is to experience some of them for one’s self. You will be introduced to and learn how to use a variety of wellness tools for adults, parents, and teens. Each tool can be adapted and customized to fit your local context. At the training you will also take time to assess the wellness needs and the wellness ministry opportunities both within your faith community and the wider community at large. You will be enriched by spending several days in community with others who are also passionate about integrating faith and wellness.

What training is needed to lead a Living Compass wellness circle?
It is advised that you attend a Community Wellness Advocate (CWA) training to be best prepared to facilitate a Living Compass wellness circle. No training is required as the facilitator manuals are created to be thorough enough that someone can use the materials without further training.
