A letter to you from Melanie...
Rituals have been part of our human experience for over 70,000 years. This is an ancient birthright woven into the very fabric of our souls.
By becoming a Ceremony Leader and Ritual Facilitator, you are stepping into a role that combines spirituality, leadership, and intuition. You will serve as a guide and catalyst for personal transformation, helping individuals tap into their inner wisdom and manifest lives filled with meaning and magic.
Within this program, we will work with a specific framework birthed from my own experience as a Master Self-Love Coach, Energy Healer, and Spiritual Teacher, along with the teachings of my great uncle, the extraordinary Heyoka Merrifield, a revered medicine man and shaman who initiated me as a ceremonial leader. This sacred amalgamation is a union of non-denominational spiritual traditions that is attuned to the experience of our modern era.
I have worked with hundreds of people on their spiritual journeys, and facilitated countless transformations. One thing I know to be true from my decade of working professionally in the healing and wellness space is that ritual is greatly missing from our modern society, and this reclamation will not only change your life, but it will change the world.
At the end of this journey, you will be given a certificate as a Ceremony Leader and Ritual Facilitator. This magical path will deepen your personal spiritual practice, embolden your confidence in guiding others through sacred experiences, and allow you to create a new sacred business offering.
I invite you to join me on this extraordinary pathway, where you will discover the depth of your spirit, awaken your intuition, and embody the profound experience of ritual facilitation. Embrace the mystical transformation that awaits.
The Spiritual Leader Initiation
Through our nine-week journey, you will be taught the 5-Step Ritual Framework curated by Melanie Monaco. This framework has been proven to be deeply transformative while also being efficient and simple enough to replicate in various circumstances - with individuals, groups, online, in person, in courses, workshops, family gatherings, and more.
You will be welcomed into this experience with an initiation ceremony. We will go over the course framework and training principals. Finally, we will dive into the history, importance, and power of ritual facilitation.
We will begin to understand the first step of our ritual framework, preparation, and you will learn the various tools you can use to not only prepare your sacred space, but also to prepare yourself for facilitating transformative experiences.
We will explore how we show up as individuals through looking at sovereignty, ancestry, and appropriation. Through discussion and guided reflections, you will have a deeper understanding of your unique gifts and offerings as a Ritual Facilitator.
This week is looking at the second step of our ritual framework, which is Divination. We will explore divinatory tools such as oracle cards, tarot cards, intuitive development, scrying (think crystal ball!), and channeling.
We will explore our third step of our ritual framework - Interpretation. This step is all about bringing your unique voice, inspirational leadership, and channeling abilities to deliver the message received through divination in a way that resonates with your ritual participants. Divination is the message, interpretation is the delivery.
This week we will begin to practice delivering rituals in community. This is part of your certification process, and through being held by the community, you will begin to bring your power forward as a Ritual Facilitator. We will continue the conversations about Interpretation and channeling, and have space for Q+A.
We will look at all the different ways that we can guide ritual attendees (and ourselves) through integrating the ritual message and themes through practices like guided meditations, energy healing, breath work, and more. It is one thing to understand something cognitively, it's another to embody it. This step is what makes this specific ritual framework so transformative and powerful.
We will explore the way we close a ritual ceremony, care for ourselves as facilitators and practitioners, client/ritual attendee relationships, ethics, and basic sacred business practices. We will also talk about magical marketing tools so you can cultivate community for your professional Ritual Facilitator work.
Each attendee will be individually initiated and honored as a Ritual Facilitator. Through a sacred ceremony, together we will release any blocks or resistances keeping us from claiming our power as spiritual leaders. We will have room for deeper conversations, final questions, coaching, and community connection.
The Spiritual Leader Initiation is a 9 week experience.
90-Minute training calls will be scheduled for every Thursday at 11am PST / 2pm EST / 6pm GMT from January 11th 2024 - March 7th 2024.
Training calls will be recorded and available to re-watch for 6 months after the program ends.
There are Two Pathways to Certification:
1. Watch all nine training calls
2. Attend at least three live training calls on Zoom
3. Hold a mini-ritual on one of our training calls and receive feedback from Melanie
1:1 MENTORSHIP PATHWAY:
1. Watch all nine training calls
2. Complete three 60-minute 1:1 calls with Melanie
3. Facilitate a mini-ritual on a 1:1 or group training call and receive feedback
Upon completion of either of these pathways, you will receive a certificate as a Sacred Ritual Facilitator.
If you join us in this initiation program, you are expected to fully commit to this experience. You will receive loving accountability for your home practices and actionable steps. This program is meant to be woven into your life as it is, it is not meant to interrupt your business or other responsibilities.
However, please be sure that you are in a season where you can truly show up and do the work.
Due to the intimate nature of this group, and the amount of support you'll be receiving, your full commitment to this container and community is required.Begin Your Initiation
