Sacred Leadership Training (SLT™)
A person's ability to create her desires and fully live her purpose requires that she embraces Self-Love as the base of all her choices. When she knows how to love herself deeply and completely, she is able to be authentic in her desires for self, family, community, and the world as a whole. Then, and only then will she be able to influence her surroundings and circumstances – This is Leadership. This is Life Mastery!
The SLT™ began in 2009 and has supported countless women to lead in their vision. The curriculum explores the multiple roles of the leader or emerging leader - healer, teacher, spiritualist, entrepreneur, activist, artist and creator.
What is the process?
- Sacred Leadership Training or SLT™ is simply an approach to leadership which is inspired by inner exploration and deepened self-awareness.
- The SLT™ curriculum is based on Spiritual principles, Universal laws and ancient wisdom practices as used across various spiritual and cultural paths.
- The process uses self-empowerment tools from an African traditional leadership perspective.
- It provides the methodology necessary to empower women to become confident, poised, compassionate, loving and influential leaders within their families, community, and the world.
- This is a 10-month process of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual exploration and awakening. Sometimes referred to as a "spiritual bootcamp."
You will have the opportunity to be mentored directly by renowned leadership development trainer, spiritual teacher and life coach, Aina-Nia Ayo'dele.
Who is this process for?
- Women who want to be a part of a support system of sacred leaders - leadership inspired by inner exploration and awareness.
- Women who are choosing to bring about social, economical, political and spiritual change by first "Being the Change."
- Women who want to strengthen their roles as leaders in this world.
- Women whose souls are called to lead authentically and abundantly; always from an overflow.
What kind of time commitment is involved?
The group meets on the 2nd Sunday each month from 10am to 5pm. Individual life coaching sessions are biweekly and counseling sessions are once monthly. Throughout the process, there are virtual group sessions and other assignments that will require your time. There are 2 retreats over the 10-month period. This includes international travel in December for culmination.
Do I have to be a leader?
This process is for those who are currently leading or emerging leaders. Women define how and where they are leading in their lives, personally or professionally.
What's the age limit?
Our focus is on spiritual maturity rather than chronological maturity. However, the youngest woman to have enrolled and culminated from this process was 21 years old.
How large is the group?
This is an intensive program and it is important to maintain an intimate group. We have received between 7 and 11 women over the years.
Where are the meetings held?
Our group sessions are held in Toronto. We have women living outside of Toronto who come in for most group sessions and join via web and phone when necessary.
What is the cost?
The cost of this process has remained minimal to ensure that women have access to this life-transforming process. The monthly fee is $397 or it can be paid in two payments of $1885, or a one-time payment of $3569. A commitment deposit of $197 is required upon acceptance.
Can I use my work Professional Development benefits towards this program?
Yes. Many employers have allowed women to use their PD dollars towards the SLT™ program. We are happy to invoice employers. You will want to check in with your employer for approval.
