"The 4 Gateways works!…both for me and my clients. 4 Gateways Training has been essential in my personal growth and my work in the world."
-Seth Braun, Business Coach, Author of 'Indestructible Success'
A 12 Week Program for Activating Hidden Genius in Yourself and Others.
Simply put, the 4 Gateways Process taps into the four fundamental ways we all have of processing experience - thinking, feeling, being, and acting. These are our natural hard-wired gateways to wisdom. When we open all four of these gateways and engage their inherent transformational capacities, our chances of making real and positive change is increased immeasurably. The 4 Gateways process is clear, comprehensive, adaptable, deep, and effective.
"The 4 Gateways model provides me with a map I can use for any issue and any client. The model offers access to powerful unconscious blocks that drive thinking and behavior. It’s essential to my practice."
-Brian Gast, Executive Coach, Author of 'The Business of Wanting More'
"The 4 Gateways is stunning in it's ability to create real change at the deepest levels with a huge variety of client issues. Every time I use this process, my clients are awakened to a new way of accessing their inner wisdom."
-Rhonda Hess, Business Coach, Prosperous Coach Inc.

Jan 15-17, 2016
The goal of Fundamental Skills Training is to provide you with a clear understanding of the basic 4 Gateways Process and be able to use it effectively for yourself, your clients and friends. You will get a solid grounding in the fundamental assumptions and philosophy underlying the process. You will learn the gifts and shadows of each gateway as well as how to work cleanly using your own strengths in each gateway.
You will learn how to guide your client to step out of their conditioned ways of being- Open to their inner wisdom, define their issue or challenge, determine the direction for the work and possible outcomes, step out of their conditioned system to get 4 different perspectives, begin to see barriers as assets, evaluate the risks to change, find deeper meaning, and how to get support for soulful systemic resolutions. Ultimately, you will learn to guide your clients to bring new awarenesses into their inner life, their relationships, their work, and their communities.
Part 1 will preview the variety of deeper tools available during the course of the whole program. This weekend will focus on personal self-care as a basis for making the model real in your own life.
To be truly great helping professionals in any field we have to practice what we preach. We can't take our clients to places that we haven't explored ourselves. This weekend will provide each participant the opportunity to assess their strengths and shadows in each Gateway and do their own soul work using the 4 Gateways. You will leave this phase of the training having a much better understanding of your own inner world, how your shadows show up in each Gateway and how they impact many aspects of your work and life. You will discover how perceived weakness and vulnerability is always an asset in your work with others.
You will learn how to work with fears and resistance using voice dialogue and risk management. You will work on monitoring yourself during sessions, staying focused, and working in a timely way. We will focus on creating “Courts of Support” for yourself and your clients. As desired, you will have an opportunity to request feedback and evaluation of your skills from both your peers and from the training staff.
Dates to be determined collaboratively.
In the third Part of the Training, you will develop your own unique personal style with the 4 Gateways process, accessing all aspects of your gifts and wisdom. You will deepen your skills in seeing and contacting the client where they are and understanding how best to use the model to meet their needs and desires. You will leave this phase of the training with more tools and greater depth of facilitation in each gateway. You will learn shortcuts for getting to the heart of any issue and cutting edges using the model.
You will be introduced to a variety of possible applications for the 4 Gateways including but not limited to: working with groups and teams, money and success issues, leadership, relationship and couples work, facilitating conflicts and mediating, and spiritual development.
In this last phase of the training, you will deepen skills tuned to your work in the world and how to apply the model to your work. Much of this Part of the Training will be spent working with individual coaching challenges informed by your interests and concerns. This will be a learning laboratory in the deepest sense. We will be collaborating with you to create dynamic models that work for you and your unique client population.
