Gaia Education TOT: Mindful Facilitation for Empowerment
4 December, 2019 - 5 December, 2019
5 Jan 2020 at 08:30 – 18 Jan 2020 at 18:00, join us for a powerful learning journey into facilitation for empowerment, SDG’s, mindfulness, and self growth. In collaboration with Gaia Education UK.
Details: Mindful Facilitation for Empowerment is a highlight in our ALT Programme., which we have been fine-tuning over the past 20 years. This module is to enhance capacity of participants who aspire to be empowering facilitators.
Every aspect of human interaction needs facilitation, and mindful participatory facilitation is an invaluable skill, as it is empowering rather than dominating. The aim of this module is for leaders to gain knowledge, skills and attitudes of empowerment vis-a-vis domination. Participants will ride a dynamic balance of mindfulness practice, experimenting with facilitation and leading sessions to go through an holistic educational experience.
As part of Gaia Education certification, two of the training days will be committed to articulation of the Sustainable Development Goals, and the concept of Edge Work. Today’s change makers are acutely aware of the global issues facing humanity. Being grounded in the history and introduction of the UNESCO sanctioned Sustainable Development Goal leads to informed action. In this module we learn how to initiate powerful discussion from diverse perspectives. Today’s edge workers are familiar with states of high dissatisfaction. They are willing to walk the path from business as usual towards regenerative design. Join us in the exploration of maximizing edges to add viability and vitality to your projects and how to optimize your networks into powerful zones of influence.
