The EfM programme revolves around the weekly seminar sessions, led by a trained Mentor. Mentors must be certified by an EfM Trainer. The Canadian programme has seven Trainers who train all of our Mentors. They represent all areas of this country and travel a great deal in order to carry out their responsibilites.

The Canadian Trainers met again on our mountain at the Seton House of Prayer, Retreat Centre in July of 2019 for our Bi-annual advanced Training of Trainers. This time we made Canadian history when we trained our own new trainer for the Canadian network. Two American trainers, one of whom was a Staff Trainer, joined us for the week and we were really delighted to share cross border practices and insights. We had a marvelous time learning new techniques and having a chance to refresh our work on past practices. There were many insights, much laughter and at the end of the week we were tired, exilerated, full of new ideas and renewed for whatever experiences the next training sessions might bring.

Thanks to Chris and Kevin our staff trainers, and to all the participants who made it such a great week.
