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 eight 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 on our mountain at the Seton House of Prayer, Retreat Centre in August of 2017 for our Bi-annual advanced Training of Trainers. Three American trainers, joined us for the week and we were really delighted to share cross border practices and insights. We had a marvelous re-newing time, re-connecting, worshiping together, and working hard on a number of things including work on Strenght's Finders and various techniques for training modules. 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 Cathy and Elsa our staff trainers, and to all the participants who made it such a great week.
