About the Event

Come join us live and in person (in Manchester) for this 5 hour immersive training that will bring a new life and new depth to the group circles you lead.

This Training is for all Facilitators, Guides, Space Holders, Leaders and Emerging Elders of Greater Manchester.

Whether you are new to this work or you are already decades deep this immersive training will be a breath of fresh air that will enrich the circles you lead (and all spaces you hold), teach you how to meet these gatherings in a more meaningful way, and deepen your embodiment as facilitator.

Most (80%) of the learnings in this training aren't taught in modern day facilitator trainings we’ve come across.

The body of work that this training is drawn from weaves essential first nations wisdoms, ancient teachings and Matthews two decades of facilitating and leading circle all over the world.

This work isn't about what you already know and what you already embody…It calls you to what you don't yet know and what you don't yet embody. It calls you to your own personal emerging frontier.

In this way while this is a training that will upskill you as a Facilitator and Circle Holder, our time together is also a ceremony of remembering and will have an air of sacred space about it.

And for the mystical beings amongst us… you could call this ‘The Art of Turning a Circle into a Spiral’.



At the end of 5hrs you will leave with a Certificate of Recognition that acknowledges you have trained in ‘Rites of Circle’ with Matthew & The School of Living Myth.

It would be a great pleasure for you to join us for this special training



Matthew Liam Gardner is an Australian born Master Teacher, Mentor, and Facilitator of initiatory journeys.

With his captivating ability to weave together mystery teachings, mythos, and deep seeing, Matthew invites us deeper into the experience of our lives and our destiny, to rekindle our ancient relationship with the land, lineage and culture, to rediscover the extraordinary stories that underpin our existence and to rise up from within ourselves.

His teachings are both revolutionary and revelatory, offering a path of self-discovery, deep leadership, embodiment and genuine human intimacy.

Crossroads with Matthew are always nourishment for the ancient soul. If you join him in a workshop, immersion, course, ceremony or initiatory journey you find yourself in deep presence with your own timeless wisdom, your own sensory belly, your own personal legend and your own natural being-ness.

Come anchor into the earth, come feed the fire in your heart, come soften your belly, come breathe life into your wild soul, come embody what it really means to be human…

 Come remember who you really are.
