Master PRACTITIONER PROGRAM
The Holding Space Master Practitioner Certification is an employment- level training offered to those who will be hired to take over teaching and mentorship duties in the Foundations Program and the Certification Program for the Centre for Holding Space.
As the Centre and the programs we offer grow and change,
we will occasionally open up this Master Practitioner level training to applicants who have received Certification as Holding Space Practitioners.
The container and content that I found within the Foundational and Practitioner Certificate programs of the Centre for Holding Space transformed how I showed up in my life and work. I wanted to continue my journey in order to deepen my skill and expertise in this work and begin to share it more intentionally within my networks and organization. The Master Practitioner program is providing a supportive and challenging container to continue to exercise my ‘Holding Space muscles’ while crafting and developing my own programs and practice.
– Brenda Barritt, Master Practitioner Candidate

They will also:
