The Field Facilitator Training

“The Field” is a common phrase used by facilitators to speak into the energy or the vibe of the group.

This year-long facilitator training is an advanced education in studying and working directly (from many different layers, and perspectives) with group fields. Especially those around facilitating transformational group spaces in anything ranging from: relationships, embodiment, sensuality, therapy, intimacy, tantra, educational trainings, shamanic healing arts, health & wellbeing.

And, because one of the biggest and most common impediments to creating a coherent group field is the unacknowledged presence of trauma, fear, somatic contraction and dissociation carried by participants, this program includes a fully accredited trauma-aware certification.

In between our 5 in-person week-long modules, we are offering a unique online 100-hour education in how to recognize and work with trauma. You will leave the program with a fully accredited trauma-aware certification. And you’ll have invaluable skills and practice for bringing every one of your participants totally into the group field.

Completing this program will allow you to confidently bring your gifts out to the world as an accredited "trauma-informed somatic group facilitator."

When a group of humans gather, with nervous systems regulated, emotions vibrating, with open-heart’s and in service to a greater call...

In these sacred, illuminating and vibrant spaces we create palpable fields of resonance.

This is the timeless space where simple and profound human magic happens.

There are real, basic keys to learning to facilitate group field emergence. These keys range from practical knowledge like creating and setting the space, to the essential how to’s of utilizing marketing to attract the most resonant audience, all the way to the mystical elements of the land, culture and spirit allies and the subtle use of nervous system awareness and regulation.

What this level of navigation requires is to be able to hold and move from a space beyond ego & personality, rooted in the abundance and goodness of this present moment, while also connected to the unique essence of your soul's calling and unique purpose. Ultimately, guided from a profound attunement to the wisdom of your own body.

Facilitating 'The Field'

Ultimately, facilitating “the field” requires the ability to hold a space that listens with an awareness that is fluid and flowing. Simultaneously it also requires the agility to hold that space with presence, clarity, and strength.

It’s about fully stepping into the frequency in yourself that you want to invite others into. It’s about being able to be vulnerable, surrendered, yet still powerfully holding. One way to describe this is the integration of the masculine and the feminine, or the protective mother and the nurturing father becoming one.

This training is about that. Being all of you. Integrated Wholeness.

In total service of The Field.

In reverence and devotion to something so beyond yourself —something you could never have possibly known would come from the great mysterious unknown at the center of the circle.

What’s required at this depth is the capacity to open a space and vibrate a frequency of love that allows magic to unfold naturally.

When presence permeates, it generates a field of love, and that field of love is what we are in devotion to. That is what’s creating all the Magic.

*(Magic in this context assumes no specific goal other than to come together in service to the emergent mystery).

When humans gather in service of something greater than their own individual egoic desires and superficial ideas, we create the possibility to unify in service to co-create a better world. In the sheer simplicity of this commonly used phrase, "The Field" automatically implies and draws attention to the space we are each connected to through our bodies, but that also exists beyond the boundaries of our skin. This is the very shift that is needed in all our spaces at this time. In order to step into a paradigm that has the capacity to hold a new earth, and the relational evolution we all know is possible we need to attune to the space we are all ultimately connected to, as one.

In these liminal spaces we have the opportunity to take part in a much larger process of spiritual evolution that informs the direction of the future generations by how we show up in relation to ourselves and the collective as they are arising in the group field today.

How can you create transformational spaces responsibly--- so that the space is both held enough that everyone in it feels safe to be brave but open enough that everyone feels free to be authentic?

How can you tap into what wants and yearns to come through the space you create with as much purity and clarity as possible?

What is the field of love calling for? How can you attune to that call, and navigate it in resonance with the wisdom arising in your own body?

The Field is a year-long facilitator training that will take a group into exactly this mystery:

  • How to facilitate emergent group spaces where hearts and nervous systems can open, synchronize and the group comes alive as an embodied whole.
  • How to learn to listen together to what the group field is inviting, moment to moment, and have the confidence as a facilitator to act on it and be in service to it in real time.
  • How to stay connected to where you want to take a group, and yet also surrender so deeply that it is the intelligence of the field that leads us deeper together rather than one person's agendas.
  • How having a trauma-informed education in group facilitation can both add to and support the process of co-creation and emergent space development.
  • What practical knowledge and support is needed to create a strong enough container for the kind of “Field” any particular facilitator would like to hold space for.

If you are either an aspiring or experienced facilitator and you feel called to evolve your craft so you can be in deeper service to the intelligence and power of a group field, consider joining this training!

What you can expect

This training is based on the recognition that:

  • Field Facilitation isn’t something that you do. It’s something that you are. As you guide others, you guide them into your state of consciousness. This is both extremely precious and a powerful responsibility that is not to be taken lightly. The impact we have as facilitators has the potential to reach far beyond any one event.
  • The deep skill in facilitation is learning to listen with your whole body to where the group field is inviting you to go next, and then acting on that listening in each moment to that intuitive call. This process begins before participants step into the room. It begins when the inspiration for the event lands in your field of awareness. Then there can be an opening in your body and life as you begin to hold it, feel it, play with it, speak it, dance it, move it and embody it. This dance between the facilitator and the mystery of what wants to unfold is a kind of collaborative lovemaking and the job of a Field Facilitator is to put yourself in service to this emergent process.
  • Having trauma-informed knowledge and an embodied education is important for leadership in the field beyond the reasons of “do no harm.” Trauma aware facilitators are able to create and hold the depth and level of consciousness necessary for every participant to be fully relaxed and open in their bodies and nervous systems because this is the essential ingredient for creativity to flow.

This training will take you on a journey to learn these skills, and to evolve you into the art of embodied facilitation.

Our experiential education will start with supporting you to connect to the inspiration and creativity of your own soul essence, its unique transmission, and what truly wants to come through you, as authentic facilitation is always an expression of what is most alive for us.

Then the focus will be on how you actually land that in matter on all the practical, physical dimensions - in the most appropriate venue, with resonant marketing, an integrated sales approach, with the perfect participants joining, and how you can fully show up for all these practical elements while making them fun, inspiring and inviting for you and your participants.

With an outstanding line-up of some of the most well-respected leaders in the field, we will take you on an educational journey experiencing the power and potential of what is possible when you learn to speak this language, and communicate through the body in real-time with the emergent field of the group heart.

During Module 3, the training group will have the opportunity to put all of this into practice as we will actually create and facilitate a large-scale event together. This is critical because it is only in the doing that we learn our greatest lessons.

Key to this part of the journey will be the questions:

  • What is my unique gift and transmission to contribute to this event?
  • What are the blocks in the way of me stepping in to fully embody the love that I am?
  • How do we work together to share leadership in service to our unique capacity and offering as a team?
  • What are we in service and devotion to as group leaders opening space for this event?

Following the module of co-creation and leadership, there will be the opportunity to unpack and integrate how the event went, and to explore what are the essential pieces for you to integrate, reflect on and learn from? Also, how do you receive feedback and up-level your facilitation so you can continue to develop yourself in a way where you are clear on your unique transmission, skills and gifts, how to deliver them, and what your personal pieces to work on are.

This will set the foundation for learning to facilitate and enter into true emergence with the group, where you listen, sense and respond to what the field is inviting for the whole process to journey and spiral deeper and deeper.

Our intention is that by the time you complete this training, you will leave with a stronger connection to yourself, your own soul guidance, and how to bring it through your work as a facilitator in a way that will also flow through to touch the personal dimensions of your life, and the transpersonal healing of the world.

Once you complete this training you’ll have moved from places in yourself and your facilitation that feel shaky and tender, to one that is sensitized and self-assured, confident and deeply attuned to the fields you work with.

Although this facilitator training is named “The Field” and holds a large focus on embodied emergence within group facilitation work… the intention of this year-long training experience is also broad and far-reaching. The Field facilitator training will give you a basic education in creating and facilitating events responsibly, with the most integrity and for the greatest good possible. Every participant walking away from this training will do so with the tools needed to begin running their own specialized groups.

This training will consist of 5 week-long modules. One of these modules will include a large-scale event (possibly a festival) that the training group will fully produce, run, and facilitate together as a team.

In the weeks between modules the training will continue online through a special partnership with Soma Mystica. A globally accredited training modality integrating somatic therapy with science, nutritional medicine, spirituality, sexuality and psychology.

Through completion of this program every participant has the opportunity to become an accredited Trauma informed somatic group facilitator.

Full completion of the program consists of:

  • 250 hours of in person group work (5 week-long modules)
  • 100 hours of online work (happens online in between the modules)
  • One-on-One Mentorship with Rachel

In these liminal spaces we have the possibility to take part of a much larger spiritual evolution that informs the direction of the future generations to come by how we show up in relationship to ourselves and to the collective moving through our group field today.

About The Facilitator  & Founder

Rachel Rickards:

Rachel Rickards is an international leader in the field of personal transformation, intimacy, embodiment, and relating. She is a group facilitator extraordinaire, event producer, and a new mother.

In 2014 she and Buster Radvik co-founded Embodied Intimacy, which has become one of the most respected organizations globally that offers trainings and events focussed on intimacy, trauma, relational intelligence, somatic education and community. The work of Embodied Intimacy supports hundreds of people each year to come home to themselves, to their body and more regulated nervous systems, and become more of who they truly are.

Since 2019, Rachel has led the Belly2Belly Facilitator Training after her teacher and mentor, David Cates, passed the torch and CEO position for this work to her. Belly2Belly offers a simple and yet profoundly healing set of embodied and relational practices, which support people to learn to regulate their nervous systems in a way that can be transformational for their relationships. Rachel has single handedly produced and facilitates most of the events with her extraordinary superpowers in the field of event planning and depth in embodied leadership.

Rachel’s newest passion project launching this year is “The Field Facilitator Training.” This is a revolutionary new experiential learning environment for upcoming group facilitators who are passionate about creating fields of deep group-heart coherence and learning how to facilitate group soul emergence. This requires the development of radically new facilitation skills, such as learning to listen to the group field, collective surrender to the moment, as well as dynamic and fluid collective leadership to support the blossoming of the group soul that is longing to emerge in the space between us.

Simultaneously, Rachel has just taken on her biggest project to date as a community builder and visionary of Alma Do Solo. With her partner, Lennart Hennig, she has purchased property and is currently in the developmental and visionary phase of creating a regenerative land, and community eco-village on the Azores islands. Their intention is to give birth to an event and education center with a holistic relationship to death at its core.

The Guest


Leapt past the “fuck it” barrier, Andi courageously fires forward, charging to defend the cosmic order of our species. Holding higher standards for what it means to be human, she teaches Jedis and machines to become Applied Epigeneticists: the doctors of the future. After a decade-long, highly public career as a Naturopath, directing the wellness center at the largest retreat center in the world, running global fasting retreats and teaching yoga teacher trainings, Andi speaks on the human interface…

How can you improve your relationship with yourself by collecting more data points on your human experience (awareness)? This involves anything from embodiment to interpersonal communication. Andi teaches the things you wish you’d learned in school. Knowing 2020 would be the tipping point of our modern area, Andi founded The Institute For Aliveness, online courses humanity desperately needs, with students from 50+ countries. We have a flagship first-of-it’s-kind accredited Master’s program in Applied Epigenetics.

Andi also runs Physiological Computing - a colony ship, actively programming the future - at the intersection of human physiology & Technology. She joins Rachel in this landmark facilitator training program to continue to uplevel the standards of how we are showing up in holding space for others and seeks to impart hard-earned mastery onto those who are ready to answer the call.

David Cates has devoted 40 years of his adult life to exploring sex, intimacy and connection. He travels the world as a deeply respected tantra teacher, sexual healer, mentor and beloved elder. His recent explorations involve using tantric embodiment practices to create synchronized group heart fields.

He created the Belly2Belly practice so random strangers can move together into a palpable shared experience of trust and loving connection. David is committed to showing men and women how to tap into the power sources in our own bodies and give birth to new realities.

Lennart is a growth and leadership facilitator. He explores the edges of individual and collective development through the angles of consciousness, embodiment, safety, trauma, and deep ecology using an integral framework of the whole, undivided cosmos.

His deepest inquiry is the potential we tap into when we dissolve the paradigm of separation that is underneath our identity and our whole culture, and begin embodying and integrating the truth of wholeness into our sense of self and our actions. Accepting and integrating every part of our being, embracing our full human experience and walking towards a state of authenticity and vulnerability from where we recognize the profound interdependency we are a part of.

He is particularly intrigued by the alchemical potential our collective and individual wounding and shadows hold for us, when we start honoring death and darkness as a place of growth and rebirth, and how we can step into a dialectical relationship towards more truth instead of polarization when we take responsibility for an internally regulated somatic sense of safety.

Bringing the principles of liberation, love, and leadership to individuals and organizations wanting to act from their true purpose as a conscious part of the whole is at the core of his work.

I am sometimes described by those who experience my offerings as a Celtic blend of a Breathworker, Bodyworker, Spiritual Sexologist and Somatic Scientist.

I sense there is an alchemy to my way of creating processes & spaces that arises from my training in older lineage traditions as a Tantra Educator and a Shamanic Minister; merged and complemented by the modern lineages of Certified Sexological Bodywork, Certified Breathwork Facilitator and her 20 years of clinical practice as a Medical Scientist. I am the founder of Master Your Pleasure, an initiation journey to reconnect to pleasure as an essential medicine & possibility for prayer. I am a Lead Faculty member of The International School of Temple Arts ISTA.

I love to share events & deep immersion experiences around the globe and online, often in 10 or more countries a year. My 'house' is in London, my 'homeland' is Scotland and my home is always changing.

I journeyed for 20 years in research and direct patient care as Medical Scientist with my own clinical practice. I bring this powerful experience of the physical manifestations of dis-ease to my current offerings. I enjoy to bridge the, apparent and illusion of a gap between science and spiritually with love and respect for both.

My passion lies in healing emotional wounds, opening to deeper vulnerable relating, awakening soul & sexual energy, and owning of our authentic personal power & fragility. This often unfolds through integrating sexuality & spirituality via the physical body, energy body, consciousness, mind and soul energies using practical experiential learning and deep transformation ritual space.

Ultimately my desire is for all of us to be more alive in our life. To appreciate and make the most of the opportunities that arise and to face our challenges, pain, shadows, power, desire, fragility, clear & heal our pain, open to love, connection, magic, pleasure, to claim and include our souls journey and to transform whatever is in the away of this we move through our time here in this body, on this planet, at this time.

Adrien Labaeye (Dr.) is devoted to crafting individual and collective pathways to transition from “the story of separation” into a path of healing our connection to self and Other, offering bridges from mind to body and spirit, and from human to the more-than-human.

Since 2019 he teaches Movement Medicine, a practice of mindfulness in motion that mobilizes the shamanic powers of our creative and imaginative selves. As an alumnus of the Embodied Intimacy Training as well as the Samothraki Temple Training and Tamera’s Love School, he developed a skilful art in shaping sacred and brave spaces for people to reclaim their erotic life force and personal power. Spaces where everyone is free to embrace the full spectrum of experience from despair to ecstasy, a field where play and prayer collapse in the center.

This work threads strategic community organizing with the joy of baking sourdough bread and developing relationships with seeds.

Sunny Ju, founder of De-Armouring Trainings & Retreats, is an international Embodiment Educator and a real Pleasure Activist. With over 20 years of experience in trauma informed Body-, Breath- and Energywork, and working with thousands of clients, Sunny believes that listening to the body is the missing key to soul-satisfying relationships, mind-altering sex, and heart-felt happiness.

With a focus on De-Armouring, Sunny guides groups and individuals through deeply transformational processes, towards breaking free from conditioning, opening up the body and finding peace and joy. Sunny has a background as certified Hypnosis and Hypnoanalysis Therapist, accessing the subconscious mind to heal deep layers of trauma.

Vaishnavi is a singer of the sacred, a playful voice-worker and a highly-attuned nervous system whisperer.

After a science degree and a career in film and TV production, she was extremely surprised to reconnect with her ancient priestess nature over several years in a large Indian ashram. Through a decade of burnout and chronic illness, she has crawled through some very dark tunnels and found light - leaving her with an unshakeable faith in the phoenix-like nature of the human heart.

Vaishnavi has been sensitively facilitating transformational group work since 2001: from yoga and voice workshops and retreats to Listening School to Deep Work: a 6-month women’s programme for thriving beyond old limits. One of her greatest passion projects was co-creating and launching Embodied Intimacy’s flagship online training ReSource in 2020 - fired by her enthusiasm to share the body of work that has so upgraded her own life.

Relentlessly awestruck by the magical nature of the metamorphosis that occurs within the safe spaces she holds, she is profoundly touched to witness others to deepening back into their most authentic selves and reclaiming their own inner Eden. Although she increasingly lives a fairytale woodland existence—catching songs and talking to trees whilst birds alight on her fingertips—her ongoing practice is rooted in the notion that “Paradise is an inside job”.
