News Flash! A new Certification cohort is being offered this Winter, 2023! 

Would you like to join our intimate, international circle of certified facilitators? Susan Partnow is forming a new cohort to mentor our next generation of Compassionate Listening facilitators. Mentorship is for individuals who want to embrace Compassionate Listening as a life-long practice and share it with others. Whether you want to offer our introductory trainings online or in person, create new CL workshops or Journeys and offer them on our event calendar, or integrate CL into other work you are doing, we welcome you to consider joining our facilitator circle! Mentoring takes place online via Zoom.


As a mentee, you will need to convene a group of 8 to 14 participants who will commit to meeting for 10 sessions, twice a month, where you will take your practice group through the essentials of our basic introductory curriculum, in person or via Zoom. Mentees  will meet with Susan as a group to prepare for each session.  


Fees for the program will be reduced for a group rate: $1,500 to $3,000 (you decide) per participant plus a certification fee of $500 to TCLP.

Join our Facilitator Certification Program and learn to facilitate Compassionate Listening workshops, create your own CL programs and/or merge CL with your own work.


This program is for leaders who have experience facilitating and who want to deepen their skills and bring this body of work to the world. The Certification Program is designed as a 5-12-month program that involves being mentored by one of our seasoned facilitators, and leading a practice group where you learn to facilitate our entire 2-day introductory Compassionate Listening training.  


CL facilitators offer workshops that reach thousands of people across the globe each year. We come from all walks of life: teachers, peace leaders, college professors, mediators, therapists, researchers, doctors, concerned citizens, and most of all, people who are committed to making a difference in the world.
