Current Steps to LBL Training and joining our LBL Facilitator Community
MNI LBL training is an amazing personal opportunity. Not only do you become qualified to offer LBL sessions to your own clients, you also become part of our MNI family and LBL Community Below is a step by step overview of this pathway. In 2023 we are making some changes to our education program, and the prerequisites may look slightly different for the next training. Please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
1. Become a qualified and experienced hypnotherapy practitioner
Only qualified and experienced practitioners are accepted for MNI Life Between Lives training. A minimum of 200 hours formal hypnotherapy education, encompassing age regression and the use of trauma release by therapeutic intervention techniques, or equivalent.
Please visit the list of courses with Newton Institute approved Alliance Training Providers- hypnotherapy, available throughout the world and online.
2. Learn and practice past life regression methods
Next you should focus on training and gaining experience in age, womb and past life regression hypnotic techniques. Here you will learn to guide your clients back to key experiences so that they can understand, evaluate and place in perspective the relevance of those past experiences by integration into their current lives. Experience conducting a minimum 20 past life regression sessions is required.
Please visit the list of courses with Newton Institute approved Alliance Training Providers (Regression), available throughout the world and online.
Although womb regression experience is also desired, for those who do not have this before undertaking LBL training, a short practicum will be included in the LBL training course to ensure this skill is also covered.
Our LBL Facilitators also have a wide variety of previous past life training from a number of hypnotherapy schools around the world. Contact us to enquire if your training, (or intended training), meets the set prerequisite standard for LBL training.
For those who need more past life regression experience, as well as for those who meet the qualifications of The Michael Newton Institute Life Between Lives Regression Training and wish to improve their regression skills before taking the MNI course, you may enroll in the Pre-LBL training offered by our Alliance Training Providers- Pre-LBL.
In this training you will learn and practice some of the specialized regression skills originally developed by Dr. Michael Newton that prepare you for taking The Michael Newton Institute Life Between Lives Regression Training. And then have time to practice those skills in preparation for the MNI Training.
If you are an experienced past life regression therapist but are not familiar with the Michael Newton method of regression through childhood, womb/in-utero and past life, this training will give you the additional required methodology and experience to qualify for the MNI Training.
3. Complete the required reading
Likely you will have already read Journey of Souls, Destiny of Souls by Dr. Michael Newton on your journey to deciding to become an LBL Facilitator. These books and Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy, also by Dr. Newton, are required reading before taking LBL training. We highly recommend also reading other MNI books including, Memories of the Afterlife, Llewelyn’s Little Book of Life Between Lives, and Wisdom Of Souls in preparation for your training.
4. Apply for LBL training

5. Attend an LBL training course
With a high ratio of trainers to students, and extensive mentoring support, each 6-day residential small-group training course offers students the opportunity to learn the “Newton Method” from a team of highly qualified and experienced MNI LBL trainers. Students will also discover new techniques and avenues of afterlife exploration developed and refined through MNI’s Research Team and our community of LBL practitioners.

See information about upcoming training here.
6. Practice and submit LBL case studies
Successful, newly-trained students are invited to become MNI Associate Members, as they work towards their MNI LBL certification through a practicum period of up to nine months, with the support of a personal mentor. Written and recorded case study submissions are required to demonstrate proficiency in the facilitation of LBL sessions. Case studies are evaluated by members of our Certification Team.
