A Little Peace of MindMentor Program
If your life has been changed by the work that we do here at A Little Peace of Mind or the Three Principles understanding and you’d love the opportunity to help others struggling with anxiety, while gaining a deeper understanding for yourself, then the Little Peace of Mind Mentor Program is the perfect fit for you.
With the Little Peace of Mind book soon to be released and over 70,000 people around the world already part of the Little Peace of Mind family, how great would it be to be able to provide a real-life community of people all exploring in this direction? Facebook is great, but let’s face it, nothing beats the real thing.
Imagine a team of Little Peace of Mind Mentors all around the world, running regular meet-ups in their local communities so that members of the Little Peace of Mind family can get together with others who want to be in this conversation.
Where people with anxiety who are on waiting lists for treatment and have no other support can be met with love and understanding, close to their homes, to just hang out with people who understand where peace lies.
Where the partners, carers and loved ones of those people are warmly welcomed to find out how best to support the person that’s struggling. I wonder what the ripple effect might be.
First, we’ll get together for a five day virtual intensive. (That means we do it online).
Places will be limited and here we’ll explore deep dive into areas such as:
=> Deepening your own grounding in this understanding – the degree to which you live in peace and wellbeing is the degree to which you’ll be able to support others to do the same
=> Getting clear on how valuable YOUR individual contribution to others could be
=> How becoming a Mentor is one of the best ways for you not only to support others but to see more about this understanding for yourself too
The five-day trainings will take place using zoom so you can join from the comfort of your own home and will be interactive so come prepared to ask questions and jump into conversation with me and the other Mentors-to-be on the calls.
Dates: 6-10 May 2019: 10.30am – 12pm and 1.30pm-3pm each day UK time with recordings sent out directly following each call.
Additional Q&A slots will be provided in the week for those in Australia/New Zealand/Pacific Time Zone to get their questions answered at a time when they are awake!
It’s not necessary that you attend every single call but you should try to set aside time each day to watch the recordings and keep up where possible.
This will be followed up by 12 months of monthly Mentor Training and Support calls where we can discuss:
- Questions about your own grounding
- Ideas for topics for upcoming meet-ups
- Anything and everything!
What’s In It For You?
hang out with people who understand you!
a way to pass it forward
I was so grateful for the difference this understanding made to my life, I knew I wanted to pass it onto others. This is the simplest way I know to help you do the same.
Polish up that halo and pass it on. Just by showing up and being you. Could it really be that simple to make a difference? Yes, and you’ll see the simplicity of that by the end of the training.
a non-scary way to support!
All you’ll need to do is find a local cafe or pub to hold your meet-up. We’ll provide members and ideas for attendees for members to watch/read before each meeting so they come with ready-made topics of conversation.
be a little bit famous
A chance to be a founding member of something that could be huge – hang out with me and a bunch of other like-minded people for a year as we c0-create this thing together.
You’ll be named as a Little Peace of Mind Mentor on our website (so you can show off to your Mum) and details of your group will be shared in our weekly newsletter so new members can find you.
ongoing training & support
Monthly Mentor Training and Support Calls mean you get to stay in touch with me personally – every question you ask and hear answered will deepen your own understanding and be helpful to your group. A chance to be part of the Little Peace of Mind inner circle and find out what really goes on behind the scenes!
deepen your own understanding
During the five-day intensive, our main priority will be deepening your personal experience of peace and wellbeing. Even if you decide not to actually become a Mentor at the end, what you’ll take for yourself from the intensive will be transformative.
As a Mentor, one of the best ways to see more for yourself is to be in conversation and answering questions from others. It truly is one of the most rewarding roles on the planet IMHO!
Your total investment is just £497*.
A non-returnable deposit of £250* is required to reserve your spot, with the balance being due 30 days before your intensive.
(Please note, this fee is for this first pilot training only – in future trainings it may well be considerably more).
- The five-day training intensive in May
- A year of monthly webinars to follow-up and provide support
- Listing on the Little Peace of Mind website as a Little Peace of Mind Mentor
- Listing of your groups on the Little Peace of Mind website and in newsletters
- Provision of the Meet-Up platform we use to organise the events (don’t worry, I’ll show you how to use it!)
- Access to an online portal for connecting with other Mentors, resources and best practice guidelines
- Behind-the-scenes news of what goes on at my own Meet-Ups starting as soon as you sign up
- A whole heap of fun and a feel-good factor that lasts all year long
Who is a good fit to apply to become a Mentor?
You need to have been impacted in some way in your own life by the Three Principles understanding. It’s helpful if you have experience in your own life with anxiety and stress, but not essential as long as you have compassion those struggling with this.
You must be happy to give up at least one afternoon or evening a month to hold a local meet-up group to support others in your area and have a genuine desire to bring what you know to the lives of others.
You need to be able to get to the physical venue for the training.
I'm not brave enough!!
Your meet-up will be free for people to attend and you’ll start small so no pressure. Imagine yourself sitting at a cafe or bar with a small table with 4 or 5 people due to turn up and have a drink and relaxed chat about anxiety, peace and wellbeing. Over time this group might grow, but you can set a limit that you’re comfortable or let it grow as large as you like over time. You so ARE brave enough. You wouldn’t have read this far if you weren’t. Plus me, Mind and the other Mentors will all have your back 🙂
Is this a full coach training and certification?
No, I want to be very clear about this. Training as a coach requires far more intensive training over a longer period of time than the Little Peace of Mind Mentor Training provides – and you will not be able to call yourself a Little Peace of Mind Coach or present yourself as a trained coach to your meet-up group. Many people touched by this understanding do want a way to help others but the £8,ooo – £10,000 investment to do so for a good quality Three Principles Coach Training program is out of reach for many, or is a step you might not be sure you want to take just yet. Becoming a Little Peace of Mind Mentor is a good step to see for yourself whether further training is something you might enjoy doing, at a far more affordable investment than full coach training. And of course, if you ARE a qualified coach, or decide to become one, let me know as we’re always looking for new coaches to join the Little Peace of Mind team.
Can I do it with a friend?
Of course! If two of you attend the training from the same local area, it can be great fun to join together to lead a group.
What happens after the first year?
Your investment and successful completion of the training gives you access to the ongoing Mentor Support & Training calls for 12 months after the training. You’ll also be listed on our website during that 12 month period.
Following that, there will be an annual fee of £497 (plus VAT) which gives continued access to the Calls and continued listing on the site.
Am I allowed to offer personal coaching to my meet-up group?
Integrity is a value we hold very dearly here at A Little Peace of Mind so we want to make sure you are clear what you role as a Mentor is – to lead your local group. You’re in a role as a Mentor, not a coach. Obviously we want the meet-up groups to be places where people can feel safe, accepted and not feel ‘sold to’ so making sure your groups are ‘pitch-free’ are values you’ll need to subscribe to too.
Will I automatically become a Mentor at the end of the intensive?
If for any reason you don’t meet the criteria to become a Little Peace of Mind Mentor at the end of the training week, we’ll try to find a way to remedy that, and failing that, you’ll be issued a full refund for the training (but not any personal travel/accommodation/food expenses occurred). I imagine this is highly unlikely to happen, but this is one of those ‘just in case’ statements!
How much time will being a Mentor take?
You’ll need to attend the full five-day intensive training. The monthly Mentor Training and Support calls will be 60 minutes and are optional to attend – recordings will be sent out after each call. Following your training, you’ll be expected to run a minimum of one meet-up each month in your local area in order to maintain your standing as a Mentor and be listed as such on the website. Of course you can run them more frequently if you’d like to (and we’d love it if you build up enough momentum and enjoy doing them enough to do that!). Of course, if you’re a trained coach and you take on clients from your meet-up group, how much time you spend doing that is up to you!
Can you revoke my position as a Mentor once I've trained?
I don’t imagine this happening as I’m trying to make sure I bring the right people on board for this but yes. I can withdraw your Mentor position at my discretion. If you’re an arse. If you promote your coaching services to your meet-up group or generate complaints. If you don’t manage to hold one meet-up a month. If you do anything illegal, unethical or unkind (also comes under the ‘being an arse’ category. If any of these situations arise, of course we’ll talk about it first, but my decision as to whether you can continue as a Mentor will be final. Ooooooh, I sound very strict! Seriously, I want my Mentors to be world-class and operate based on love and understanding. Do that and we should be OK.
I still have questions
No problem, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
