Event Description

As facilitator, you hold a group in space and in silence by offering the “container” through which group participants can deepen their relationship with the content and one another. Holding Space, Holding Silence invites you to get curious and deepen your skills and ideas regarding facilitation. As virtual and hybrid events become more common, how are we keeping Quaker values and practices at the center as we hold space for all we bring to programming? How are we making room for Spirit through our active space curation and our intentional silence?

This workshop was dreamed up and designed thinking of:

  1. Anti-racism rooted practices and processes
  2. Quakers who want to lead deepening activities in their meetings
  3. people who want to develop workshops
  4. invite young folks to help with skill development
  5. experienced facilitators who want to shift their skills to a spiritual context
