GuruMeher means “compassionate teacher”. He is the author of Senses of the Soul: Emotional Therapy for Strength, Healing and Guidance, the foundational work of Emotional Liberation trainings. His mission is to help humans use emotions skillfully to find peace and happiness.
GuruMeher is a certified Yoga Therapist and professional Life Coach. An original student of master Yogi Bhajan, he has delivered Kundalini yoga classes, workshops and teacher trainings to thousands of students internationally over the last 40 years.
“The healing from difficult emotions and trauma that I experienced in GuruMeher’s Emotional Liberation® training was so profound that I knew I wanted to help others do the same.
I continued studying with him in the SOS “Facilitator in Training” (FIT) program. To my amazement, I reached even greater personal freedom and flow with my troubling emotions – and greater joy!
GuruMeher inspired me to launch my own practice and we worked regularly to hone my coaching skills. Since being certified as a facilitator in this groundbreaking work, I am personally and professionally rewarded by bringing this much-needed work to the world.”
–Becca Williams, Facilitator, Emotional Liberation ®
The Certification Process
Becoming an SOS Facilitator is a 2 or 3-year process, depending on previous experience and certifications. Each year is approximately 10 months. Here’s how it works:
Year 1: Experience Emotional Liberation
Take the course for your own growth and healing. Experience the transformation that happens as you learn to master the SOS method. You can only know how to work with others’ emotions by knowing how yours work, and you can only know them by direct experience. As you get comfortable and know your way around your inner emotional world, you can live with others and help people without reacting. If you’ve already completed the course, you can start at Year 2.
Year 2: Help facilitate Emotional Liberation and learn to coach using the SOS method
Experience the course a second time as you attend the weekly calls and do all the practices again along with the class. FIT students report this second year completes the personal work that began in year 1. You will go deeper and realize much more about yourself. In terms of learning to administer the work, you will:
- Receive monthly private coaching with GuruMeher to further personal growth
- Participate in weekly Facilitator In Training (FIT) calls to learn how to coach using the SOS Method
- Examine the coaching process, discuss student process and progress from the group calls and plan upcoming classes
You will assist GuruMeher with the Emotional Liberation Course as needed. You may be required to:
- Present material during course sessions as assigned and independently answer student questions and eventually lead group calls
- Review student homework in confidentiality
- Coach students and lead participants through the SOS process during live course sessions (virtual and in person)
- Share personal experiences, past and present, to illustrate SOS concepts
- Work one-on-one with students
Please refer to the Facilitator In Training Agreement for full details and requirements.
Third year (as needed; some individuals may qualify to do this concurrent with the second year): Help facilitate Emotional Liberation and build your practice
After 2 years of personally using this work and helping many others you will be working closely with students, coaching and leading sessions. If you practice another healing modality, you will likely have already begun integrating SOS work into it. You will begin or expand your healing/ coaching skills and practice with continued weekly FIT meetings, monthly personal coaching sessions, and group call facilitation.
NOTE: Licensed professionals who come to Emotional Liberation with significant applicable experience and skills, may be eligible on a case-by-case basis to complete certification in 2 years. If you feel this applies to you, please discuss with GuruMeher.
“Your work has done wonders for me and so many of my clients with shame and lack of self love. It helps me to continue on my road with strength and compassion.”
