A 24-week program for facilitators, teachers, coaches
and advanced explorers, with optional certification track
Led by Transformational Teacher
Patricia Ellsberg
New Live Training Starts
Thursday, April 9, 2015

Back by popular demand, The Emergence Process Teaching Intensive guides you to embody and fully express your Essential Self in your daily life, and inspire and facilitate others to do the same.

The Emergence Process, co-created by Patricia Ellsberg and her sister Barbara Marx Hubbard, is a spiritual journey into literally the next stage of our human evolution, whose pioneers are incarnating the divine in the flesh, here on earth every day – not as a future potential but in everyday life.

Many of us have flashes of inspiration and spiritual openings that we're unable to sustain when we engage with the world.

Live consistently at the higher vibrational level of your “Essential Self,” and guide others in this profound process of embodied divinity.

You’ll learn how to build internal resonance between all parts of your self, creating an integrated local self that welcomes in more of your higher Self – with love, gentleness and power.

In doing so, you a magnetic, centered, and radiant force for positive change quite naturally.

The Emergence Process is very different from psychotherapy and most meditation practices; it is a co-creative journey fueled by internal and external resonance.

This state of higher resonance literally connects us to the unified field and higher capacities which would otherwise be very difficult, if not impossible, to access. Rather than following a strict formula, the Emergence Process tracks the truth of the moment, leading to new possibilities of healing, co-creation, and higher intuitive guidance.

At the deepest level, it is a homecoming for your soul and a welcoming of the upper octave of your being into your body, emotions, and daily life. The Emergence Process is really an alchemy of the human heart that allows the flow of a relaxed, loving presence into every cell of your body.

This 24-week advanced and expanded presentation of the Emergence Process offers a unique opportunity for both new and continuing students to receive personal guidance and delve more deeply than ever into each step of the 10-step
Emergence Process.

You will learn to facilitate the Emergence Process with individuals and lead Emergence Circles, making it a core part of your transformational toolkit and an important adjunct to a coaching, therapy, group, or leadership practice.

You will be empowered to share and lead this process, which is so valuable for all those who want “to be the change they wish to see in the world”, and share this powerful tool for social transformation.

We created this teacher-training program after noticing the 8-week Emergence Process introductory courses taught by Patricia Ellsberg had - by far - the greatest rate of repeating students of any course offered by The Shift Network.

A significant number of people have taken the journey as many as four times.

We asked ourselves why the Emergence Process had this intense level of interest and discovered that because it is an ever-unfolding, organic journey, each time someone cycles through, there are fresh insights, openings, and learnings.

Participants also shared that the quality of the resonant field created is so transformative and powerful that such that they want to stay connected to it and continue to grow. Finally, for many of us, birthing the Essential Self requires more time and steady support to unfold fully.

The new, six-month format is ideal for those who recognize the power, depth, and importance of this work and want to go deeper with a strong field of community, practice, and support.

In its exciting enriched form, this training offers a
three-fold opportunity:

  • You will be supported in your journey to Live as Essence in Action and express the radiant and luminous core of your being in every aspect of your life – with guidance in your own Emergence, step by step.
  • You will learn how to facilitate discussions of the Emergence Process and lead Emergence Circles. This has the additional benefit of making the teachings your own, for, as is said, “You master what you teach.”
  • Those who feel called will have the opportunity to earn an Emergence Process Facilitation Certification by registering for a more advanced learning track.

This is more than a course. It is a way of
living, being and doing.

The Emergence Process is unparalleled in its capacity to restore internal wholeness, align you with your truest self, and dissolve the internal schisms that pit parts of you against other parts. It is an invitation for your Universal Self to be born and expressed in your daily life.

Transformational teacher Patricia Ellsberg, inspired teachings by her sister, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and a team of skilled Senior Emergence Process Facilitators committed to living as Essence will guide you.

Through The Emergence Process Teaching Intensive, you will learn and help others to:

  • Experience peace, ease and inspiration as you leave behind the concerns, pressures, compulsions and stress of your daily life.
  • Incarnate your Essential Self, becoming the Beloved you have been seeking.
  • Awaken a loving presence within you and live as loving awareness.
  • Release the illusion of separation, letting ego guide you to Essence.
  • Find your true purpose, with your ego aligned with and in service to your Essence.
  • Heal long-held “sacred wounds” within you, transforming limiting beliefs into strategies that empower you.
  • Surrender the “figure-it-out” mind and access higher intuition.
  • Allow your life to re-pattern, consciously releasing what no longer serves you.
  • Develop your authentic power and discover greater flow in your work and life, seamlessly blending being and doing.
  • Commit to taking steps that manifest your life’s passion.
  • Create a support team and find a community with whom to co-create.

Also, as you learn to facilitate each of the 10 steps of the Emergence Process with others you will be guided to:

  • Transmit the “Essence” of each step in your own way.
  • Create and facilitate Emergence Circles.
  • Cultivate group resonance.
  • Sustain and deepen a “resonant field”.
  • Speak and inspire others to speak from Essence.
  • Honor the silence.
  • Listen deeply.
  • Lead attunements and powerful guided meditations.

Now is the time to deepen your experience, expand your knowledge and share your wisdom and gifts. The Emergence Process Teaching Intensive offers you powerful teachings, practices and a co-creative community of support.

What You’ll Discover in This 24-Week Training

Each LIVE training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to permanently sustain your Emergence and catalyze it in others.

Each week Patricia Ellsberg, along with Senior Emergence Facilitators, will support you to break through to your highest potential and live more fully as your Essential Self. For each of the 10 Steps, two weeks will be devoted to delving in deeply. The first week you will dive deeply into the content and the second week you will have an opportunity to share the teachings in a small group, lead an attunement and small group discussion and receive feedback from fellow students in your circle. There will be time for you to share your experience of each step, and your successes and challenges.

You will also receive guidance on how to share each step with others and invited to engage in regular practice teaching sessions and lead Emergence Circles. Additional practice sessions will be offered throughout the course for those who want to receive more guidance from Patricia and the Facilitation Team.

You will be encouraged to find an “Emergence Process partner” or participate in an Emergence Circle, and meet at least once to discuss each step. You’ll be supported in finding these partners among either the participants in the course or from your own circle of friends and can meet virtually or in person.
You will also have access to a dynamic online community to discuss and practice the teachings with fellow participants. Senior Emergence Facilitators will be available to offer individual advice and support.

The program runs April 9 - September 17, 2015. Main course sessions will air live on Thursdays, 5pm -7pm Pacific and 7pm- 9pm Eastern time. Additional, “Global Cafe” and Certification Track calls will be announced. However, even if you cannot make the live calls, you can still get the full benefit of this training.

    What Students Say about The Emergence Process and Patricia Ellsberg...

    "I loved it... Answering the call and listening to the useful steps, linked me regularly with my higher self and it gave me the courage and the enthusiasm I needed to continue the work I have already begun 20 years ago in my community."
    – Monica Huber Fontaine, Geneve, Switzerland

    "For me it was really an amazing experience, especially considering that I have been on the spiritual path for a long time so I am not so frequently surprised! But in this case, I feel Patricia helped me to build a profound and deep connection with myself. This was invaluable for me and helped me to emerge. I loved Patricia‘s leading the course and meditations."
    – Laura Gabriela Rey, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    "I have been searching for an expansion into a broader community where individuals hold ’the space’ of integrity and essence as a group. The experience with you all was that community for me at this time in my evolution. I felt deep resonance with the meditations, the words, the stories and the voices /folks on the conference class calls. I was able to experience a deeper and longer connection to my core soul ’I AM’ in the group energy."
    – Holly Hubbard, Wilmington, North Carolina, USA

    "As someone who has been searching for truth and healing for many years, this Emergence course has been the richest, most powerful and transformative experience of my life. I now feel connected to a palpable loving radiant inner presence or I could call it an inner fullness of love and peaceful joy that just wants to overflow towards others and towards the world. I have experienced the soothing and healing energy of this loving presence towards the wounded places in me. People I come into contact with, often tell me they feel something positive emanating from me. There has been a quickening, an intensification in the circumstances of my life, moving me towards a richer, more loving life.

    I want to thank Patricia for her wonderful presentation of the course. I was so touched and inspired to feel how steady and unflinching was the unconditional love emanating from her at all times and present in her every word, making it easy for me to invoke the presence of essence. I feel that she is giving a precious gift to people by delivering this course with such skill and depth."
    – Sarah Igelfeld, Montreal, Quebec

    "In my over three decades of seeking self and spiritual growth I have not experienced anything more profoundly transformative than the From Ego to Essence teleclass with Patricia Elsberg. I have all of Patricia’s meditations on my iPod and listen to them daily. I have never felt such joy, safety, comfort, compassion and gratitude as when I am in the space of full surrender to my Universal Self, and I would still continue to struggle to find that state without the guidance of Patricia... Thank you so much."
    – Kathryn Brewer, Arroyo Grande, CA, United States

    “Participating in the Emergence Process with Patricia has been one of the most meaningful and powerful processes I have ever done. I use one of their recorded meditations every morning. Their profound depth of wisdom and love are carrying me ever more deeply into my Universal Heart.”
    – Cynthia Volpi, Oakland, CA, United States

    "Being part of the Emergence Process provided me with an unique opportunity to expand my consciousness through the concepts and models that they provided and the regular contact that I had through the Ning site with fellow travelers.”
    – Thomas Harris, Johannesburg, South Africa

    “The Emergence course was truly the guiding force to the shift within me. I was deeply able to fully feel and experience the loving presence to my inner wounded child. The beautiful meditations led by Patricia and the sharing of Barbara’s experiences in this course is profoundly guiding my emergence process. I am forever deeply in gratitude.”
    – Carolyn Temes, United States

    “Each morning when I write from my egoic self, I often feel concerned and annoyed. Yet when I read I write back as Essence, I am struck by the calmness of the words and compassion of the tone.”
    – Harvey Austin, Pompano Beach, FL, United States

    "For me the course grounded and stabilized my inner work I have done before. I have learned many new aspects and perspectives by the teachings of Barbara and Patricia and the other members of the course whom I met through the course via the internet."

    More Praise for Patricia Ellsberg...

    Patricia Ellsberg is an inspiration to students in my Awakening Joy class in which she has led profoundly evocative guided meditations for many years. She truly lives as her essence and is one of my favorite joy buddies.
    – James Baraz, co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, author of Awakening Joy: 10 Steps that will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness

    Patricia Ellsberg is an inspiring teacher and leader. I’ve shared programs with her many times and enjoyed myself as a participant just as often. She never fails to bring me to deep internal peace, a new insight into myself, and feelings of complete pleasure and wellbeing. I jump at the opportunity to be in her presence.
    – Rick Foster, co-author, How We Choose to Be Happy and Happiness & Health

    In the Emergence Course, Patricia Ellsberg’s loving presence came straight through my mobile phone into my heart week after week. Her caring, brilliant articulation of years of practice, along with her skillful mediation guidance, radically deepened my own ability to contact, coax, seduce and embrace my own beloved Essence. A rare gifted teacher who channels both head and heart, Patricia is a gem not to be missed.
    – Karen Everett, documentary filmmaker

    Patricia Ellsberg is a wise woman and an inspired teacher, who emanates love, peace and joy with every breath. To be in her Presence is to touch the highest and most Divine aspects of Self. I wholeheartedly recommend her class to anyone who is committed to a path of deep transformation.
    – Carolyn Anderson, co-author ofThe Co-Creator’s Handbook

    Thank You Patricia!!! Your loving kindness when sharing The Emergence Training from ego to essence has opened for me a whole new way to relate to myself and others. My critical and judgmental voices got integrated and embraced by Essence, allowing me to relate with my reality and others from an authentic and loving space that makes my life more enjoyable. Becoming a facilitator and being able to offer this gift of transformation to others while enhancing and deepening my own process has added to the joy. With Infinite Gratitude!
    – Adriana Colotti Comel, Facilitator of Emergence, Mexico City, Mexico

    The Emergence class and process changed my life. As a result of the concepts of the course, my life is primarily loving, joyful and free. When it is not, I received the tools I need to quickly return to my center, so that I can live the life I have always desired. My experience as a psychotherapist says that the course conveys a basic education for living a happy spirit-filled life. My life purpose has become sharing "Emergence" with others.

You can also use Skype credit/subscription or Google Voice to dial in to MaestroConference, and you’ll need to use your virtual keypad to enter your PIN and to indicate that you want to ask a question.
