Certified Facilitator of Adult Learning

Become a Certified Facilitator of Adult Learning Most teachers and trainers of adults are enthusiastic presenters who know their topics well. Many however have had no formal training in educational methodology. Helping participants learn is the point of all presentations, whether they are hour long lectures, week long seminars, business and industry training programs, or academic courses. Even if you are a natural teacher, a sound grounding in Adult Learning Theories and Strategies will take your presentations to the next level and ensure your success in helping Adults learn and grow.

To Share What You "Know", the 6th  teaching TEA

Last Wednesday of each Month. Next meeting is February 27th, 6-7:30 pm at the Otto Labyrinth Park



Star Teachings TEA’S are Circle gatherings where we share Time, Earth, Air, Space and share in conversation with open minds and a welcoming presence with the technologies of Kindness and Compassion.  These teachings help us recognize that we are all capable of being teachers of kindness and compassion in our simplest thoughts and actions.  When we practice these ancient teachings we become resonant as a community. When we become resonant as a community our full potential as humans becomes unlocked like an ancient archive within.

Star Teachings are suggestions. By practicing kindness and showing compassion we find happiness. Participating in these Star Teachings helps us look in the same direction to help gain new understandings about the world around us and our purpose in it.  These Ancient Teachings that are being shared with us help to give a roadmap home. These teachings we can implement immediately to create massive shifts in our lives and that of a global community.

This information has rarely been shared with non native cultures until now. Please join us and begin to remember what part you play in the unfolding.  All are invited to participate in this journey from ME to WE.
Participation is ceremony. There is always room for questions, please bring some with you!

This may be an outdoor event, please dress accordingly.
Bring an outdoor chair as seating will be limited.

Thank you.3

About Dr. Jill Henry

It all began with my dissertation at the University of Georgia in 1988 titled: Development and Learning for Transformation. After being awarded my doctoral degree, I left my position as a tenured professor of Physical Therapy at the Medical College of Georgia and opened up a metaphysical store (the only one) in Augusta, Georgia called The Relaxation Station. Here I spent the next 6 years learning the practice of metaphysics with over 100 different instructors who taught at "The Station". In 1994 I moved to the mountains and In 2004 I submitted a manuscript to Llewellyn Worldwide, who "bought" my book, titled: Energy Sourcebook, the Fundamentals of Personal Energy. My book won the prestigious COVR award for best in Alternative Medicine in 2005 and has since been translated into 4 languages across the world. I continue to work part time as a physical therapist and up until now my schedule has kept me from my first love, teaching & learning & sharing with others. I hope you join me in this series of workshops!
