Practicing facilitation with your certification

Seekers who practice facilitation embody the values that make the SeekHealing community what it is. While practicing facilitation, you have the vital responsibility of upholding the ethos of non-hierarchy, courageous vulnerability, trauma-informed practice and compassionate authenticity. You’re also commissioned with supporting seekers to navigate interpersonal challenges, increased emotional intimacy, and the potential for powerful transformation with the aim of deepening genuine connection.

Since 2017, SeekHealing has

Established itself as the nation’s first Social Health non-profit dedicated to providing universally accessible  and reliable spaces for genuine human connection.
Brought together over 2,500 people from all walks of life in hundreds of meetings, trainings, social events, and other initiatives.
Created evidence-based solutions to the loneliness epidemic that are igniting a radical revolution in the way we do mental, emotional, and relational health and healing.

02
Become a Space Owl
Optional
A Space Owl is an individual who fosters authentic, non judgmental connection with other human beings through listening to Connection Practice attendees who need extra support.

This allows you to get more practice in using the 3 tools, collaborate directly with seekers who are already practicing facilitation, and strengthen your own facilitation skills.

This step is entirely optional, but we’re always in need of more reliable Space Owls, both in-person and online. This requires a short orientation.
