These past few years, we have taken steps to not only launch Flourishing, but see it grow to what it is today: a truly Global Movement.

Much of how we have seen the company grow is through our certifications and courses.

In the beginning, it was mostly Abe Brown and Connie Jakab who did our facilitation.

But this past year was exciting as we saw Roy and Tiffany Mitton take on some facilitation, along with others.

NOW we are ready to take the NEXT STEP, and that includes you! We have a beautiful tribe of amazing people in Flourishing with the capacity to facilitate or co-facilitate, and with some polish and support, are ready to be unleashed.

At Flourishing, we believe that EVERYONE has the ability to FLOURISH as facilitators and in the art of facilitation. Truly, facilitation IS an art!
