Module 3:  Facilitation Practicum and End of Program Celebration

The Facilitation Practicum component of Module 3 is a learning opportunity and an experiential examination of the participants' facilitation skills after more than a year of gaining facilitation experience in their small groups, and all the training modules and weekends. Each participant will have an opportunity to facilitate an Inner Bonding session with another group participant and to receive support and feedback from the trainers and other group members. Each participant will receive a "pass" or "not yet passed" on their facilitation skills demonstration. If a participant is "not yet passed", they will receive specific feedback to work on as they continue practicing their skills. They must provide a recorded session to the trainers at a future time when they are ready to be re-evaluated. Eligibility to become a Facilitator-in-Training will occur upon successful completion of the facilitation skills demonstration and all other training criteria due by this date.

DAILY INSPIRATION

When the time comes that I am no longer bonded by my beliefs but begin to feel shackled to them, then they are the beliefs of someone else that I have been sentenced to.
