Please note: this session is available for Rachel’s Vineyard Team Members only
Description: The root of the word facilitation is ʻfacilʼ, or ʻeasyʼ, so facilitation means ʻto make it easyʼ. The role of the facilitator in Rachelʼs Vineyard is to facilitate the work of the Holy Spirit.
How does one ʻmake easyʼ the work of the Holy Spirit? How does one co-facilitate with the Holy Spirit?
This two-part workshop will explore the unique role of the retreat facilitator, as well as the skills, tools, and considerations essential to facilitating the retreat process.
The second part of the workshop will be a practicum where participants will apply these skills and tools through role-playing various retreat scenarios.
Some of the topics covered will include self facilitation, nurturing the environment, managing group process and group dynamics, discussion techniques, reading a group, intervention tips and strategies, and team facilitation.
