Transforming towards our awakening

Are you longing for more? Open towards subtle experience and the flourishing of awareness in this 6-month online course.

This course is designed for both enhancing your skill set in facilitating transformation for others, your personal development and awakening. We will be diving into foundational skills, techniques, awarenesses, and embodiment using specifically designed maps, models, techniques, and practices.

Join a group of human beings, who are ready to engage in honest inquiry and open into deeper versions of self. Here, profound and true transformation becomes possible. Each cohort is unique, and provides a deeply humbling experience for all involved.

Together, we will embark on a mature learning journey of our human development – here, every interaction becomes a work of art. Our spontaneous discoveries, wild abandon, and slow movement into wholeness open into an infinite horizon line.

Developmentally Designed

This training is created to not just create state changes, but stage shifts in consciousness. Lean into healthy vertical development.

Shadow Work

Beyond the perspective of a single teacher, there are multiple teachers, mentors, and previous students who will be sharing their unique perspective and mastery in this course to support you in illuminating blindspots and unconscious material.

Details for the 2021 Program

Taught by Yugen Staff, guest teachers, and mentors, this course is a 6-month long course, with class meetings one weekend a month, 6 hours on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday of the weekend date.

The modules are hosted via the Zoom conference platform, from 10:00am-4:00pm MDT on Saturday and 10:00am-2:00pm MDT on Sunday. Each module contains a mixture of lecture, experiential practice, and both group and individual opportunities to deepen into the work.

Between Modules

You’ll be doing a lot of both supporting and being supported, in as many different contexts as possible. And there’s no way around this. This isn’t a course focused on supporting you to ‘help everybody else’. Knowing intimately what it’s like to have a blindspot highlighted by a coach simply co-exploring with you, or to suddenly have a ‘good cry’ you didn’t even know you needed, or feeling deeply seen and understood during a practice session…only by having walked this terrain yourself will you help others navigate their own.

Squads & Mentoring

Between each module, you will meet with your squad to do homework and coaching.

You will be assigned a mentor to meet with you and your squad for the duration of the training. In this group, you will complete course group homework, awareness practices, and trade sessions with each other.

How much time will I spend on this training?

Outside of class time, we recommend you spend 6-8 hours a month practicing, completing assignments, and meeting with your squads.
Of course, the more you put into the program, the more you will get out of it. And, we know that life events come up, weddings, funerals, and all the in-between can come up during this training. The great thing is, you will have all of the recordings and materials, at your disposal forever! You can always return to the class at a later date.

What support will I receive?

Support from Dedicated Yugen Coaches

When the training begins, you will be assigned a mentor who is a certified Yugen coach. This person is available to answer questions, support in homework and is on your team throughout the training!

Access to an Active Alumni Group

The Yugen Institute has an active alumni group that you will be invited to network and collaborate with as soon as you join the community.

Active Learning Platform

We use a learning platform to host the training. Throughout the class, you will post homework, share videos, and engage with the material online while recieving feedback, comments, and support.

Squad Meetings

When you are in the training, you will be assigned to a group of fellow students that will meet weekly to practice and complete your assignments with.

Program Cost

Our 6-month program is a profound investment in your growth and transformation. We limit your cohort to 15 participants, some whom we’ve encouraged years prior to wait until a more optimal time to train with us. We never presume training with us is the right choice for you! Your enrollment will be considered on a first come first serve basis. You need to complete and submit all application materials, in addition to your deposit, in order to be considered.

The $250 deposit is non-refundable.

Withdrawing from class, the refund will be based on the date of withdrawal and how much of the course you’ve taken.

Financially speaking, we strive to keep our tuition low and we do not subscribe to ‘abundance mentality’ paradigms that might encourage someone to spend money they don’t have. Depending on your emotional constitution, taking on a larger investment than you’ve saved up for might ironically prevent you from being emotionally supple enough for such an intensive training.

Early Registration through Dec. 15th: $2,499

Tuition through the end of registration (Jan 8th, 2021): $2995

A training like no other

“In this course group work, Shelby formed a safe, welcoming environment for me to sort out my intuition. I have not only begun accepting myself and gaining confidence but I also realize that I can allow myself to embrace my emotions. Tracking energy has come very naturally for me, and she helped me use that to my advantage. Shelby helps my light shine brighter, and supports me in discovering parts of myself I never knew were missing! 10/10 I would recommend.”

Meet your trainers

Hi!

This is Cat Gelinas and Shelby Robbins – we are so excited to welcome you into this course.

We have both experienced firsthand the powerful shifts that happen in energetic containers. Both of us have had our own unique journey in relating to our emergent life path and the challenges of listening and transforming with that growth.

We hold that experience arises within a vast, open space.

We hold that a flourishing self is available for all.

We invite you into relationship with us here.

Together, we will explore, uncover, open and refine our natural impulse for profound evolution.

Some considerations before signing up with us:

We imagine that this cohort is the perfect combination of people to both teach, support and trigger you. We expect trigger will happen – it often does in growth experiences – and we do not view it as a necessarily bad or good thing. Our students report that much of their learning stems from experiences with their cohort as with their instructors. You’ll likely spend the year practicing with a blend of therapists & coaches, along with artists, travelers, change makers, bodyworkers and various spiritual seekers. Your ability to learn from this variety of values & perspectives is a part of the course.
If you’re feeling anxious, know that our instructors can be intense – and they are extremely committed to not only kindness, but humility as well. At the end of the day we know that only you can determine the best style of facilitation for you. That said, you still may experience training with us as uncomfortably direct. Our interview process sorts for participants who are stable enough in their personal lives to navigate possible emotional upheaval at times.

Interested in the course?

These 6 months of training are a joy to participate in.

It truly makes the entire year a more rich & productive time for everyone, students and faculty alike.

And we aren’t spiritual entertainers. We wouldn’t dedicate our careers to this if the Yugen Foundation Training didn’t also reliably lead to concrete results.

Words from our students!

“I took the Yugen Foundation 2019 class to gain more knowledge and accelerate my path to becoming an intuitive healer. Cat and Shelby have so much information to share about such a new field of practice. They have been dedicating their lives for several years forging the path, clearing away the nonsense, and really getting to the nitty-gritty, which they willingly shared. The pods were beyond interesting. Everyone came with different gifts and talents and it was really cool to watch how each person’s talents evolved under their guidance. I enjoyed applying the verbal concepts to the energetic world. It gave me the ability to better track what was happening, why, and how to move through it. Now when something comes up, I can say “hey, this is shadow showing up!” and start working through it. Thanks Guys!"
Molly Davis
Energy Healer

What sets this training apart from others?

If you’re fascinated by the awakening path, personal development….

If you want to actually dive into causes of suffering and get to the heart of our human journey…..

Then this learning journey, quite simply, may be a beautiful match.

At Yugen Institute, we’re all about honest and lasting shifts in our lives.

And we’ve developed and inherited some tools, maps, and processes that support transformation that are truly sustainable.

A part of what this healing journey invokes is access to a broader sense of creativity and inquiry.

As we transform into more and more authentic versions of ourselves, we tend to have a newfound sense of clarity, that is more granular and precise.

The way we perceive the world, access sensation and information, and the ways we feel into each other completely shifts.

With this personal unfolding, greater innovation, creativity, and passionate aliveness is available for the system of the self.

Ways of visioning, manifesting, and tapping into our transcendent experiences unveils.

Thus, our every interaction enriches with its own becoming.
There is so much more to this training than we can cover on a webpage. And our hope is to sincerely invite you into this journey with us, and this community.

With love,
Cat Gelinas & Shelby Robbins
