Soul-Centered Facilitation:
Serving, Living & Leading From Higher Consciousness

‘What’s next for USM?’ Might it be that one of the best answers to that question can be found by working with the question, ‘How can I use my USM education more fully in my life and thereby assist others in enriching their lives?’

Becoming a successful professional player in this newly emerging world requires new skills that pertain to effective group facilitation. To assist you in bridging this gap, USM is offering a new Program entitled Soul-Centered Facilitation.

So, what’s next for USM? Encouraging and assisting grads to step more fully into their professional/work lives with the skills that pertain to success in areas beyond the individual into business application.”

—Drs. Ron & Mary Hulnick

Program Overview

The 10-Month Certificate Program in Soul-Centered Facilitation (SCF) is comprised of two levels:

  • Level I—Foundations of Soul-Centered Facilitation
  • Level II—Advanced Application in Soul-Centered Facilitation

Both levels of the Program combine in-person classes with a structured online membership. In-person classes for both Program levels meet once per month for ten months, October through July. Level II meets in-person two weekends per month (total), and culminates in a one-week practicum during the summer.

Both Programs build on the foundation of an individual’s commitment to their growth and Awakening.

Level I

Foundations of Soul-Centered Facilitation

This dynamic 10-month Certificate Program in Soul-Centered Facilitation is for graduates who are called to share the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology into the world. The Program prepares business leaders, educators, workshop facilitators, consultants, coaches, influencers, and change agents as Soul-Centered Facilitators who can effectively support transformation—first and foremost within themselves and then with organizations, groups, and individuals. Level I: Foundations in Soul-Centered Facilitation Program is designed for facilitators—not only traditional workshop or Program facilitators but also those called to develop advanced facilitation skills for making a greater impact in their service and/or professional life.

Classes marry the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology learned through participating in USM’s two-year Program with leading-edge strategies and techniques for facilitating change and transformation used throughout the world with different cultures, organizations, and educational institutions. The ways of being, qualities, practices, tools, and approaches that are requisite for being a highly effective facilitator, which have never before been shared by Ron and Mary, will be revealed. Student-facilitators will participate in a rich, sacred, and innovative educational and practical application process designed to continue their USM education and Awakening while placing greater emphasis on serving as a Soul-Centered Facilitator that utilizes the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology for the upliftment of consciousness on the planet within their own circles of influence.

Level II

Advanced Application in Soul-Centered Facilitation

This unique advanced offering is designed for graduates called to be USM Facilitators and dedicated to service and Awakening as a lifelong process. During this offering, student-facilitators will be given the responsibility to inspire, facilitate, and guide Soul-Centered accountability with a cohort of Second Year students in support of optimizing these students’ educational experience and Awakening. As a Program focused on effective application of the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology, student-facilitators will receive feedback and expand their repertoire of advanced Soul-Centered facilitation tools as a roadmap for eventual qualification as a University of Santa Monica Facilitator. Special emphasis will be placed on each participant’s way of being as one who demonstrates the readiness and dedication to Awaken and live life in a way that models and supports others in living their lives in greater harmony with their Authentic Self and the Clarity, Wisdom, Peace, Loving, Joy, Aliveness, Alignment, and Freedom of their Essential Nature.
