Facilitation Training


Recovery Learning Center, 187 High Street, Ste 303 Holyoke MA.


Wednesday August 29 in Holyoke, the Recovery Learning Center and Freedom Center are offering a 3-hour Meeting Facilitation Training, led by Freedom Center organizer and Icarus Project staff Will Hall.

"Facilitation" means designated people directing meetings more easily toward shared goals. Have you been at meetings but felt they would go better with better facilitation? Do you want to learn how to facilitate meetings yourself? Have you been facilitating meetings and you want to learn some skills?

The training will draw on Will Hall's 20 years of group facilitation experience, and focus on the basic tools and skills all facilitators need in this delicate art.

Common pitfalls and problems will be addressed through experiential group work, such as balancing personal and group needs, dealing with low energy, leaderfulness, interrupting from the heart, psychic self defense, trauma and triggering, people felt to be disruptive, the proper place for hierarchy, grounding tools, and inclusion. Time will also be devoted to specific requests, participant sharing of their own skills and knowledge, and if there is time we'll do a bonus mini-segment on lucid dreaming while awake.

Space is limited. You don't have to pre-register, but if the workshop fills up people who did pre-register will be given priority.

(If you were at the June 24th training you are welcome to come to this one as well. We will cover the same material, but you will have more chances to practice your skills.)

For more information and to pre-register, contact the Recovery Learning Community info@westernmassrlc.org 1-866-641-2853

There is no charge for this event. Donations appreciated and we will pass the hat, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Snacks will be provided, along with some Really Awesome Handouts. (Feel free to download the Really Awesome Handouts at:
