Earn a living teaching groups of people how to upgrade, optimize and use their mind in ways that significantly enhance their health, relationships, resilience and effectiveness.
Your guide and instructor is Dr. Mark Atkinson MBBS, medical doctor, creator of the Psychological Fitness Training System and founder of the Human Potential Institute.
You must have completed the Psychological Fitness training course and received Specialist status from us. Aside from this, the main prerequisite is a sincere desire to dive deeper into the worlds of self-actualization and psychological fitness, a willingness to live from awareness with integrity and a desire to facilitate this approach with groups of people.
As a Certified Psychological Fitness Teacher, you will be able to experientially guide groups of people (from executives and athletes to members of the general public and parents) through the life-expanding, identity-shifting process of inner transformation and personal empowerment that is Psychological Fitness. You will, upon completion of the teacher training be licensed to offer any or all of the following in-person training courses and workshops.
Psychological Fitness Training | 8-Week Course
This is our flagship course and as a Certified Psychological Fitness Teacher you will be able and licensed to teach it. At its heart is teaching your attendees how to take charge of their mind and live from the wellbeing and wisdom of aware Presence. The practices and exercises are the same ones you learned in your specialist training. This is an incredible opportunity to facilitate deep transformational insight and to witness the power and potency of this approach within a group setting.
The outcomes offered to Clients through this training include learning how to:
The format for this in-person course is eight, 90-minute classes at weekly intervals. We will provide you with a complete course schedule and all the training and marketing materials that you will require. We will additionally advertise your class in the events section of our website.
The recommended price to charge for the 8-week course is $350 USD. The ideal class size for you will depend on your experience, size of available room and of course your ability to successfully enroll people. A class size of between 6 and 16 people would be about right for one facilitator. Based on $350/person, the potential revenue generated would therefore be between $2,100 and $5,600 per course. As a Certified Psychological Fitness Teacher licensed to deliver this training you would keep all of the monies that you receive.
Gateway to Presence | Practitioner Training
This is a brilliant opportunity for you to teach others how to use the psychological fitness master practice — Zooming Out with their Clients. We would anticipate most of the people attending your Gateway to Presence Practitioner training will be holistically oriented health practitioners, health/life Coaches, yoga/meditation teachers and members of the general public interested in personal development.
As you know, Zooming Out is a profound, practical and effortless way to transmute limiting emo-beliefs and access the freedom and ease of aware Presence. It has huge potential application within many different fields including, but limited to healthcare, therapy, coaching, high-performance, self-help, education and human potential development. Having learned how to use it themselves on day one, you will teach the attendees how to use it with their future Clients and patients on day two. Other psychological fitness tools you would teach include Centering, Effortless Awareness and the Freedom Process.
The recommended tuition price for the two-day Practitioner Training is $350. If you are new to group facilitation, we suggest you start with 6 to 8 people. If you have experience — a maximum of 16 people.
Anyone graduating from your training program would need to apply for registration as a Gateway to Presence Practitioner with the Human Potential Institute. There would be a renewable $100 annual charge for them.
Gateway to Presence | The Workshop
This is the flagship Psychological Fitness workshop and can be delivered as a ½ or one-day experience. As a Certified Psychological Fitness Teacher, you will be able to lead the flagship Psychological Fitness workshop and guide your participants through a series of exercises and practices designed to evoke ultimate wellbeing and inner freedom. The main practices you will be experientially sharing are Centering, Shaking, Effortless Awareness, Freedom Process and Zooming Out.
The format for this in-person workshop is 3 or 6 hours and recommended price for the one-day workshop $125 USD and $85 for the half-day workshop. We suggest a class size of 8 to 20 people. As a Certified Psychological Fitness Teacher licensed to deliver this training you would keep all of the monies that you receive.
Ultimately you are in charge and can decide which workshops/courses you want to offer. You might for example want to focus initially on teaching the 8-week Psychological Fitness course, or perhaps the Gateway to Presence workshop. If you are a therapist or Coach, you might choose to run a Gateway to Presence Practitioner training. The choice is yours!
Dr. Mark Atkinson will provide 100% of the training himself and has decided to limit the size of the teacher training program to a maximum of 32 people. This will ensure he can provide you with a high level of attention and support.
Because places are limited you can enroll prior to receiving Psychological Fitness Specialist status. This is with caveat that you will secure your specialist status by December 30th, 2019.
The monthly, 75-minute live calls take place via Zoom teleconferencing on the following dates:
Whilst the ideal is for you to attend live in-person, we appreciate that might not always be possible. If you miss a call you will need to listen to the recording and complete a Call Summary form that you will submit at the end of the course.
The core of the training is delivered through the 4-day immersive workshop. This takes place Sept 17th (Thursday) – Sept 20th (Sunday) 2020 at the Sheraton Pasadena Hotel, in Pasadena, CA, USA. We start at 9am each day and finish at 4pm on the Sunday. Attending all sessions is mandatory. Formal teaching ends at 5pm on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday. You will however be expected to work with your teacher buddies each evening.
The focus prior to September seminar will be on supporting your ongoing process of self-actualization and developing a high-level of mastery of the Psychological Fitness practices and exercises. The emphasis is not on the acquisition and knowledge beyond what you learned in the Specialist training, but on embodying it, practicing with it, gathering experience and living it. Dr. Mark will guide you through the format of the three courses/workshops prior to the seminar so you come to the seminar well prepared.
A lot! You will however be well prepared. The focus of the four days is ultimately about becoming confident and competent in facilitating the three courses. If the thought of that evokes fear, use Zooming Out or Releasing!
This depends on how proactive you are and how many attendees come. If you take a conservative estimate of 8 attendees at each event and offering 2 of each events each year, an estimate of your potential revenue would be as follows.
8-Week Psychological Fitness training course: $350 x 8 x 2 = $5,600
Gateway to Presence workshop: $125 x 8 x 2 = $2000
Gateway to Presence Practitioner training: $350 x 8 x 2 = $5,600
Potential income = $13,200, plus income from attendees who sign up for your 1:1 Psychological Fitness training.
If you already have an established network/community then numbers attending would potentially be more.
There is no refund for the Psychological Fitness Teacher training program. If you can’t complete the training for any reason, you can be moved to the 2021 training for an administration fee of $250.
To continue to be licenced to offer and teach the three Psychological Fitness training courses, you will be required to pay an annual fee starting one year after graduating. The October 2021 renewal fee will be $1250.
