Immanuel Encounter Guide Training (IEGT)

Cost: $250/ person, $400/ married couples both taking the same course

The Immanuel Encounter Guide Training involves teaching videos and pdf handouts on our Thinkific platform, live Zoom practice groups led by trained mentors, and live demonstration sessions.  

The 10-week curriculum includes topics such as:

  • Joy and Capacity,

  • What the Immanuel Encounter Is and Isn't,

  • The Basic Elements of the Encounter Process, and

  • Encounter Guiding Skills: Attunement, Reflective Listening, Open-Ended Questions, Finding a Connection Experience and Maintaining Connection, and How to Handle Disconnection and Reconnection. 


We also look at how understanding the Pain Processing Pathway and the Brain Levels impacts the Encounter process.


Each student has several opportunities throughout the course to practice guiding a session with feedback from the mentor.

For 10 years Alive & Well has been effectively training both professionals and lay-persons to lead others into the presence of Jesus using the approach learned from Dr. Jim Wilder and Dr. Karl Lehman, developed by Margaret Webb.  Alive & Well's commitment has always been to train not only with information and observation but with intensive practice in small groups led by trained mentors.  This approach has worked well through the years for an in-person format, as we impacted individuals from over 100 churches in the Chicagoland area. 

At the beginning of 2021, we redesigned the program in an online format and successfully ran a Beta course in the Spring of 2021.  We have also renamed our approach The Immanuel Encounter and the facilitators are called Encounter Guides.
