About Dmitri Bilgere

Dmitri BilgereSince 1989, Dmitri Bilgere has been helping people care for their hearts so they are able to take the daily, excellent actions that move them toward the life they long for.

In 1988, Dmitri participated in the ManKind Project New Warrior Weekend. Once he saw the power that such transformational work could have, he dedicated himself to becoming a facilitator who could help anyone, in any situation, no matter where they were starting from.

In 1991 he cofounded Shadow Work seminars as one of the original four facilitators. Through 1997 he co-led Shadow Work weekend seminars all over the USA, as well as in places as far-flung as Hundred Mile House, Canada; Worcester, England; and Cape Town, South Africa. He also co-led Shadow Work Basic, Advanced, and “Container Building” facilitation trainings — some of them up to 10 days in length — in the United States and Canada.

In 1994 he began leading of the Inner King Training, which he has co-led ever since all over the USA.

In 1998 Dmitri’s book, “Beyond the Blame Game: Creating Compassion and Ending the Sex War in Your Life” was published. John Lee, author of the best-selling book “The Flying Boy,” called it “a must read.” It has been used as a text in classes at the University of Michigan, Pierce College, Pacific Lutheran University, and the Texas Wesleyan University.

Dmitri has also spent a total of more than four months in South Africa running workshops and coaching people. During his 1997 visit, he ran South Africa’s first-ever men’s weekend at a remote cabin in the Drakensburg mountains.

Since the early 1990s, Dmitri has been running Carpet Work Facilitation trainings all over the USA, and in Canada and South Africa. He’s taught facilitation skills to groups as diverse as the leadership of EDL, Inc., the Mankind Project Leadership Body, and numerous smaller groups and communities.

For years people asked him for phone coaching, but he declined, saying that he didn’t know how to get the results he wanted except by being in person. This changed when he met James Keeley in 2005. Since then he’s integrated Jim’s techniques with his own and now leads truly transformational work with telephone clients from all over the world.
