From Caring Supporter, to Highly In-Demand Personal Development Facilitator
If you're ready to powerfully and positively impact the lives of others, read on...
this will be your starting point.
My name is John Robson. With my wife Patrice, we are the co-creators of the
HigherAwareness Facilitator Training Program, and all programs on the HigherAwareness
After winning my internal struggle to find my creative and empowering niche in
life - which was serving others so they may live a better life...
With no flashy credentials, I was able to provide more clarity, creativity, and
healing for people in need of support.
In my first year as a workshop facilitator, I had over a 1,000 people participating
in my workshops...each person with their own unique struggle and a desire for a happier
The impact on my participants was astonishing. Forget just "living a better life" -
workshop participants went on to make lasting changes...changes leading to a greater
sense of who they are, empowerment, and confidence. And the changes they experienced
not only impacted that workshop participant - they would also have a profound effect
on the people they shared their life with.
I can show you how to duplicate my success.
Let me tell you my story...
I started my professional career as a product development engineer. I was good
at what I was doing - mostly electronic design and building, but also production
and team coordination. Despite my success, I somehow felt incomplete. Like some
critical component of my life was yet to be discovered.
Recognizing that part of me had a natural tendency to want to help or support
others in need - I instinctively offered my assistance when I saw someone in distress.
Yet, despite my good intentions, my good gesture of help would often be no more
than a short term fix - a Band-Aid at best. Seeing that family member, friend or
colleague, return to their troubled self, left me with feelings ranging from
disappointment to failure.
When still working as a product development engineer, my friend and office manager,
Nancy, was going through a difficult time. Very depressed over the status of a
once close relationship, right or wrong, I offered my support. At that moment I
believed my support offered Nancy some relief.
It was devastating to learn that a week later Nancy abruptly resigned.
My heart sunk when I got the news of Nancy's resignation. And as sad as I felt
for Nancy's situation, I couldn't help to be caught up in my own sense of self-perceived
failure. My inner critic pulled out the biggest, nastiest whip it had. And the
lashings began... often occurring over several days and continuing for hours at a
time. To say it hurt would be an understatement.
In some weird way, it hurt bad enough to drive me to take responsibility for my own
feelings and make the whippings stop. After all, at the end of the whip was my hand.
After feeling a burnout episode coming on, I took some time for myself. Having
putting my work life aside, I was off to do some reflection, soul searching, and
probably some healing.
Determined to fill the void in my life and more effectively support the people
around me - and myself, I began my journey. In my own town of Edmonton, Canada,
I found a journal based time management and organizational system product. In a
short time my experience with the product turned to a strong belief in the product's
effectiveness. After doing most of the product sales and training, I eventually
took ownership of it…and launched an exciting and meaningful life changing career.
As my thirst for learning deepened, I flew to Minneapolis and was certified as a
journaling facilitator with Kathleen Adams. (author and founder of The
Center for Journal Therapy). The
excitement flowed through me when I learned how journal writing tools could easily
be applied to anyone's challenges in workshop and coaching settings.
I finally had a very powerful tool box to support people in almost any situation.
With a passion, I started offering time management, goal setting and journal writing
workshops. Whatever workshops people wanted I created - creativity, life purpose,
intuition, meditation, self-healing and more.
Using four different low-cost, guerrilla marketing strategies, I began filling my
workshops. In one year, I had over a 1,000 adults through my living room taking
various three-hour workshops. My workshops pulled people from their ruts, and
empowered them to set course on their own rewarding life path - a path built on
higher grounds with a solid, lasting foundation.
Seeing my success, some clients wanted to offer their own workshops and requested
my guidance. I started to document my process for finding your own niche, designing
effective workshops, improving presentation skills, and how to market programs.
Packaged as a powerful, life changing Workshop Facilitation program, I moved my
training course to the internet. Within months, I was leading only virtual facilitator
programs with multiple automated income streams.
As of today, I have supported hundreds of individuals worldwide to find their niche
and create their workshops and coaching services. Many coaches use workshops for
lead generation so they could demonstrate their credibility and knowledge. Many
facilitators use journaling tools to coach their participants. Some use workshops
to stay in touch with previous clients. Others found the biggest benefit was in
their own growth as they supported family and friends.
My most important message to new facilitators is workshops are about "WORK" -
your attendees doing the work. It is not about excessive speaking and advice.
Keep your clients thinking, drawing out and trusting their own answers and healing.
Allow your clients the priceless opportunity to develop self-reliance and harness
the growth tools they can use for a lifetime.

I make it easier than ever to start your own Workshop Facilitation program.

“The Workshop Facilitation course has opened up a whole new world
for me. I have continued my personal growth journey while sharing what I love -
growing by putting words on the page. Since I began presenting workshops, my
self-confidence has increased, I feel empowered to risk new behaviours and am
enjoying the opportunity to share journaling tools as an encouragement to
others. What more could I ask?”
