"The course gave room for genuinely deep transformational work and not just information. I loved the container of safety and trust built in the room."

How to Apply


Step 1: Permission to Apply


To apply to the Inner Bonding Facilitator Training Program, you will need to have already completed or be in the process of completing your program prerequisites. Please contact our Director of Training, Stel Fine, to review your prerequisites and determine whether or not you are ready to apply to the program.


Stel can be reached at: stel.fine.ibftp@gmail.com


Step 2: Loving Adult Self Assessment

Once you have received permission to apply to the program, set aside an hour or more to complete the Loving Adult Self Assessment (LASA).  This assessment will help you to have a better understanding of the Loving Adult qualities that the IBFTP program values and will help you to develop, as well as the qualities that we expect IBFTP candidates to care about and want to cultivate in themselves.  It will help you to assess your own readiness to enter the IBFTP program. This self assessment will not be submitted with your application, but your completion of it is a prerequisite to apply.
