A Celebration Day for Girls Facilitator Training 2019


Since 2000 I have held A Celebration Day for Girls in communities across Australia.  The inherent transformational nature of puberty and menarche has seen this workshop evolve into a special program designed to meet an important need at a very specific time of life, for girls as well as their mothers and families.   Since 2012 we have been training women to facilitate A Celebration Day for Girls and, as of January 2019, we have 139 facilitators in over 20 countries supporting many more girls and their families than one person could ever reach.

This year we are offering seven Facilitator Training programs:

“The weekend training with Jane and eleven other wonderful women was absolutely fantastic!! I had pretty high expectations but I have to say that it was even better than I could ever have imagined. There was warmth, love, support, tears and so much laughter, and I believe that it was healing for all of us there, even though that wasn’t the intent. I feel I now have the tools and skills to run my own workshops and I have the support and network of some truly amazing women (especially Jane) to help me deliver the course to it’s full potential. I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants to work in this field, it was amazing!” Kate

“The CDG training expanded my world and empowered me. I drove home feeling as if I had so many more options, both professionally and personally. I felt even more passionate about the importance of this work. I feel the potential of deep cultural change from our training together and for every CDG that will flow from it. The weekend training offered a safe and nourishing space in which connections, confidence and supported growth were natural outcomes. I now glow with thought that there are at least 13 of us sharing the vision of this work with clarity. Thank you Jane for calling us in and sharing your work and wisdom with such generosity and trust.” Ingrid

“Attending Jane Bennett’s facilitator training for A Celebration Day For Girls was both a culmination of many years personal work leading me there and an exciting new beginning all in one. The days were filled with delicious information presented in the womanly art form of circle. There were many spaces of sharing created between all the wonderful women present and Jane so wisely held the space prompting our sharing and learning and moving us through the great wealth of knowledge she has to offer. If this work calls to you, then this is one of the most exciting and satisfying experiences you will find. It was a workshop so full of generosity that I left replete with my creative juices burning and the confidence to begin the sharing of A Celebration Day For Girls.” Anne
