A lot of people offer training programs or certification programs, and I offer one myself.
But I don’t think the certification itself matters very much.
It’s similar to belts in martial arts: a lot of people have a very strong desire to get a black belt, for example. But by the time they get there, they realize that the belt itself doesn’t matter so much.
What is important, is doing the work. Having the understanding. Experiencing the teachings and beginning to live it as a practice.
Martial arts is hard: there’s a lot to learn, and practice, and commit to muscle memory. It takes time and dedication to learn it, and you change a lot along the way.
Spiritual work is hard too. It causes you to give up a lot of your life that you had so nicely, neatly organized. It can mean you have to quit relationships, quit jobs, move, absent yourself from friends and family, and change all the parts of yourself that are no longer aligned with the new Self that is emerging.
You can’t put that on a piece of paper.
I offer the certification training, because it gives people a path to follow.
You can go all the way, if you want. And when you do, you’ll find the certification means nothing. It’s the work, the understanding you did on the way to get there.
