Facilitating a Meeting with Care and Skill Workshop, Tree Bressen, Oct. 15

Did you facilitate the monthly meeting only to freeze like a deer in the headlights when a conflict came up or someone acted inappropriately?

This workshop will cover the essentials of what every meeting facilitator needs to know. After going over the basic principles, we’ll practice skills such as reflective listening, how to intervene when someone is speaking too long, dealing with upsets, and other situations as brought forward by workshop participants.

This is a highly interactive workshop–come try out these key skills in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

Do you long to recapture a sense of true community, where friends know and help one another? Learn why intentional communities are attracting increasing interest as models for sustainable living. While living in an intentional community may not be for everybody, the lessons that are being learned, and the present models being developed, hold much promise for society as a whole. Join residents from several local communities as they share about some of the benefits of community living, including simple living and shared resources, sharing food growing and meals, a sense of belonging and creative participation, as well as more satisfying models of leadership and decision-making. There will be lots of time for questions. Presented by NICA (Northwest Intentional Communities Association.)
