Transpersonal Facilitator Training Program (TFTP)

Level 1

A 6-month IPHM accredited program with a 4-Day hands-on immersive retreat

(Level 1 container is limited to 12 participants - men selected based on an application/interview process - Level 2 by invitation only)

Amir Khalighi Founder Embodied Masculine™

step into your power as TRANSPERSONAL FACILITATOR

This 6-month program is designed for anyone interested in or currently holding space for deep embodiment and/or healing work.

What is Transpersonal Facilitation? The transpersonal approach emphasizes body awareness and sensitivity, the need for teachers to transcend their own ego needs, the appropriateness of myth and symbol as conveyors of intuitive knowledge, a serious approach to the arts, and an attitude toward sciences and object study which values wonder and increased sensibility. In transpersonal learning one discovers nature's intrapsychic dimensions and the close relationship between self and world. The concerns of transpersonal education are in a sense spiritual, but they are not religious in a sectarian manner. The goal is to guide the individual in his or her exploration of the many realms of experience which transcend ego.

Many who answer the call to serve others in this realm are disheartened when their efforts fall short in creating a vibrant and growing community.  Growth happens with impeccable structure, the potency of your transmission, and consistency.  This program will be the foundation of your offerings.

Creating and holding an impeccable container is a must for any facilitator involved in opening their clients to deep work.  Without it, you will not be trusted nor will they allow themselves to unfurl toward healing and growth in your space.

Then there is your transmission, your teaching voice, the tools you use in opening people & spaces, plus your unique offerings.

We will dive deep into these topics in theory and in practice, plus much more.  We will work on creating practices out of intention, empowering your unique teaching voice, utilizing the 5 instruments of working with the energetic body, building structure in support of your offerings, and guiding you in creating an airtight container for deep, transformational work. (see "Benefits from taking this course" below)

Graduates of this program will be accredited by Embodied Masculine™ & IPHM.  Graduates of this program will also be able to assist/lead Embodied Masculine™ circles.

Amir's work with men started at the age of 23. Through his 20s and 30s, he worked with hundreds of men centered around addictive behaviors and also through the discipline of martial arts.  Subsequently, his work has evolved and now encompasses Jungian archetypal, somatic, shamanic and embodiment methodologies.

His passion in the field of men’s work has been most influenced by mythopoetic men’s work, Sufi mysticism, yogic intimacy, Shamanism, Celtic mythology, Hermetic Qabalah, and Jungian archetypal psychology (see our lineage page for a deeper look).

countdown to start of the program



I strongly recommend that men work with Amir, either through his group formats (Wednesday night embodiment circle's) or via 1:1 coaching. Amir has been an integral part of my conscious awakening. He has built a powerful community of men that are "on the path" and have provided me with much needed camaraderie, and his extensive knowledge of depth psychology, embodiment practices, and masculine-feminine dynamics has helped me develop as a man and leader.



I have had the deep honor, pleasure and privilege of knowing and working with Amir for close to three years and he is one of the most trusted allies I have on the path of living as a powerfully aligned man. Amir is committed to living his truth on such a deeply authentic level and it comes through with everything he does. To get to share time with Amir is absolutely invaluable.

A 6 month Foundational Course in holding a Powerful, Sacred, Safe and transformative container



Amir is a leader. Pure and simple. Wise and honest as well as one of the most generous souls I’ve worked within. He has helped so many. I send as many men as I can do his groups. I’m lucky to have crossed paths with him. I highly recommend anyone to work with Amir!

Hands on training and feedback

A 6 month container to support fine-tuning your offerings with peer group support, feedback and accountability

"In one sense, the voyage of self-discovery is solitary, but that doesn’t mean you have to take it all alone. A lot of men suffer silently when they are in creative chaos and feel something is wrong with them because they don’t realize other men are experiencing a similar disintegration of the old modes of masculinity. In matters of the psyche and spirit, taking the journey and telling the story go hand-in-glove, and that is why we need a listening community in order to make our solitary pilgrimage. The most powerful resource we have for transforming ourselves is honest conversation between men and men, women and men, men and women."

— Sam Keen, Fire In The Belly


"Being a part of a supportive men's group can be an extremely rewarding, humbling and transformative experience.  To have like-minded, loving men who are as dedicated to their own spiritual growth as you are - who show you your blind spots, sit with you and listen to you - has the power to transform a man forever." - Amir Khalighi
