Liberatory Coaching Certification Program

The Liberatory Coaching Certification Program is a 9-month professional coaching certification training for BIPOC social justice movement leaders who are committed to learning coaching skills for individual and collective liberation. Given the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, all programs will be provided virtually. If the conditions change, there will be a collective discussion about consensus around meeting in person or offering an in-person/virtual experience for Weekend Retreats.


Some of the skills you will develop include...


  • Growing in Self-leadership in order to ground yourself in creativity, compassion, courage, and connectedness.

  • Deepening your understanding of white supremacy and settler colonialism and how to address them in your community, organization and the larger movement.

  • Addressing and releasing individual and generational trauma into a source of joy, abundance, and energy.  

  • Identifying your needs and values and learning to identify needs and values of your team members, coalition partners, elected officials, coach partners, and clients in order to move into alignment with what is longing to be birthed.


We are looking for folks who are...


  • Movement leaders such as community organizers, teachers, executive directors, spiritual leaders, healers, program officers, program and executive directors, cultural workers, consultants, prison abolitionists, and circle holders

    • Movement experience can be anywhere from 2 years to 50+ years!

  • Open to connecting with Spirit and Ancestors
