“What strikes me most about Julianne as a trainer is her unending patience and deep kindness. Not once during the training was I made to feel less-than, or like a question I had to offer wasn’t valid. Julianne brings a sense of safety, of whatever comes up being okay, that was so sorely lacking from the educational contexts I grew up in. As a group, we developed a precious sense of comradery and vulnerability under her wing. On a personal level, I absorbed an understanding of inquiry that went beyond the techniques in question. Thanks again, Julianne!”Alec Rodrigues
Next Training Class Starts in September 2020
Interested in Becoming a Certified Kiloby Inquiries Facilitator?
Who Can Apply for Training?
Anyone may apply for training who is interested in their own deepening, or wishes to become certified to work with others using the Kiloby Inquiries. This training program may be for you if:
- You’ve experienced freedom from your suffering through these techniques and want to help others
- You have extensive experience working with clients using mindfulness and self-inquiry and want to learn powerful new tools that you can incorporate to deepen your own practice
- You already work as a clinician, counselor, or healer, and want to acquire new tools to adequately and safely address clients’ past trauma
- You simply want to continue your own deepening
What does the training include?
This program will provide you with opportunities to gain the required skills, experience, knowledge, confidence, support and deepening to meet our certification requirements, so that you become a competent and professional Kiloby Inquiries (KI) Certified Facilitator. It includes all of the current Kiloby Inquiries techniques, including:
- Boomerang and Panorama
- Natural Rest
- The NOW Method
- Simple Inquiry
- The Kiloby Clearing Method
- Mindful Motivational Reprocessing (MMR)
- Reverse Inquiry and Utility Inquiry
- The Shadow Process
- Trigger Worksheet
- Trauma Inventory
- And much more!
How Can I Use My Certification?
Once certified in KI, applicants may apply for available positions at the Kiloby Center for Recovery, Natural Rest Detox and Residential House, future centers to be opened around the country, the online inquiry center that is in development, work in private practice using these methods, or simply use these for your own growth and development.
How Is The Training Organized?
Training will take place online. It will consist of approximately 10 online group calls, and several smaller group calls with your trainers for practice/feedback time. You will also receive four facilitated sessions with your trainer(s) and support facilitators, which will help in your own deepening. The online group calls are typically 2 – 2.5 hours. Training can last from 6 – 9 months, depending on how quickly you develop your skills.
There will also be a private Facebook group for communication and support throughout training. You will receive an abundance of support throughout the process.
What Else Should I Know?
In order to gain expertise, you will need to practice regularly with other trainees, once given the go-ahead by your trainers. Minimum practice time should be at least one session each of giving and receiving facilitation, per week. More often is better. In addition, you should plan on spending a minimum of 2 hours per week on self-practice. The more practice you get, the sooner your chances of being certified. As it gets closer to evaluation time, we will ask you to do some Feedback Sessions with our assisting facilitators. In these sessions, you will facilitate them, and they will give you feedback on your skills, and tell you what still needs to be worked on. This will help you prepare for certification. We also suggest that you read the book Natural Rest for Addiction by Scott Kiloby.
This training can be an intensive experience. Expect your own deficiency stories to come bubbling up to the surface. Previously unseen or unconscious triggers, stories, and emotional pain may arise during training. Although this may not happen, for many it does – and it’s totally normal. We suggest that you get to know your fellow trainees as soon as possible through the private Facebook page we will establish for this training course. We also suggest that you get comfortable sharing your experiences with each other, asking for support, and being available to support your fellow trainees. The experiences you have or that you observe in your fellow trainees can help you better understand and respond to the experiences future clients will have.
If you need additional support, you can also book additional private sessions with any KI or LI facilitator of your choice, and pay for sessions at their usual rate. Having additional paid-for sessions is also an option. We offer discounted sessions for trainee’s in training.
What Is the Evaluation Process Like?
After the training and practice period, you can schedule your evaluations when you feel ready to be evaluated. There will be two evaluations, one with each of your trainers. You will facilitate them in each of the methods learned. Most of the methods can be done within one session. If your trainer feels you need more practice before becoming certified, they will let you know specifically what skills you need to work on, and another evaluation can be scheduled when you are ready. Certification is not guaranteed.
After certification, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement and join our robust online community of facilitators.

“Julianne is an excellent trainer and facilitator, truly committed to being of service to others. She took a sincere interest in those of us in our cohort, and she created a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to learn and deepen our own personal work. Under Julianne’s skillful guidance, I not only learned the essential tools in the Kiloby Inquiries, but also saw modeled how they can be astutely applied through her demonstrations and personal sessions with me. Julianne is patient, authentic, and personable, and she holds a wealth of knowledge that she is always happy to share. The foundation Julianne lays is very strong, and I know I have learned sound Kiloby Inquiry methods as a result of her expert guidance.” ~Meredith Markow 2019/2020
Julianne is an exceptional teacher, an exemplar of the very approach that she teaches. Her skill, intuition, openness to change, are attributes of the very reason we do this work. But most of all, Julianne knows how to be “with” us, that is, present to this moment to what arises. I support her continued work in this modality, and to be honest, any. ~ Mike Unrau
“So appreciate the subtleties we are digging into…. I find myself feeling a new depth of freedom, presence, curiosity and peace in my body and in circumstances that in the past would trigger me big time.” – Shirly Joy
“Each time I sit with someone to practice inquiry, I feel gratitude for this gift of presence together.” – Angela MacLeod, KI Facilitator
“Signing up for the KI training has been one of the best decisions I’ve taken in the last few months. Period. Though it took me several weeks to get going and start catching up with others, it’s been a totally rewarding, rich and an immersive experience. I absolutely love and cherish that both Matt and Julianne gave me plenty of space and time in the initial periods for me to sink into the material and to start practicing with other trainees. I felt no pressure or judgement from either of them at any point during my initial struggle, and I could sense that they were there for me in a way which felt very freeing and refreshing at the same time.
Being part of the training has not only allowed me to practice with folks from my group, but also provided the opportunity to reach out to a much wider pool of fellow trainees from other batches who’ve engaged with this work for a while. I’ve found the ki community to be very warm, supportive, nurturing, compassionate, friendly and insightful. This access has allowed me to form some deeply meaningful friendships and bonds, while providing a virtual communal space for me to give/receive support, understanding and guidance.
I’m continually blown away by the opportunities made available to deepen my facilitation skills – for instance, I love that I’m able to continually hone my skills as a trainee by practicing with certified facs who are committed, skilled, perceptive and genuinely supportive while providing great feedback every single time I practice with them. In addition, filling in and sending out self eval forms to my trainers after facilitating someone has offered me an additional layer of encouragement, support and clarity to some of the issues that’d present themselves during practice. Which is AWESOME.
Continuing to do this work everyday with other trainees has tremendously helped me deepen, while also providing great insights and understanding as to why we suffer so much both individually and collectively. Not to mention the incredibly powerful tools on offer that continue to help with reducing personal suffering, while making me feel more grounded, calm, balanced and present. Most crucially, I know that I have a trustworthy set of tools that I can use when I get emotionally triggered and also the opportunity to further look into the trigger with the help of my wonderful peers.
I feel truly honored, humbled and blessed to have discovered this work and to be training in this work with some incredible people. It continues to be life-changing.” – Ash Rav
“Training to become a KI Facilitator with Matt and Julianne has given me more freedom in my daily life while developing a powerful new set of professional skills to support my clients. Matt and Julianne are brilliant teachers, offering explicit teaching with practical examples and they offer a gentle space for learning where they are willing to be on the ground with us, learning, sharing their own vulnerability too. Matt and Julianne work well together and support each other as much as they support us as students. They are always willing to listen to your questions and answer them with generosity. The course is incredible. The techniques are life changing and I’m so glad I took the step to do this training. Learning the techniques to facilitate others opened me up to more self-facilitating which has had a profound impact on my daily life. Being facilitated regularly by other students throughout the course has helped me uncover and process many hidden traumas from the past and I find myself more centred in life. As a facilitator, it’s a gift to witness the clarity people have from using the KI techniques. I’m excited to see how I can bring more of this modality into my work in the future. If you love Scott’s work already, you’ll love the facilitator training and I highly recommend training with Matt and Julianne.” – Bronte Spicer
