Ziele & Inhalt

Next Stage Facilitation develops leaders and facilitators capable of working in fluid and creative ways with a wide range of complex group dynamics. This live 3-day training is for individuals who want to become more authentic, spontaneous, and responsive facilitative leaders in service of the cultures and organizations they care about.

Participants will increasing their skills in each of the four domains of facilitation (facilitator awareness, behavior, understanding of groups, and systems and structures).

Participants will practice:

  • How to listen and respond spontaneously 
  • Working in an integral way with groups 
  • Relating to challenging emotions 
  • Integrating multiple perspectives as they arise 
  • Generating trust and safety in the room 
  • Meeting expectations in a fluid way 
  • Creative risk taking 
  • Working with fear and shadow 
  • Maintaining stable open awareness 
  • Perceiving and responding to subtle dimensions of group process 
  • Facilitating from a place of not knowing



Integral Facilitator trainings bring together four distinct domains of knowledge and practice: Awareness practice—Zen, Adult developmental psychology, Facilitator skills and techniques, and Integral Theory. The curriculum uses the Integral map to illuminate the complex terrain of group facilitation and facilitative leadership. The IF approach develops interior awareness, presence, embodied expression, facilitator behaviors and interventions, and awareness of the systems and structures which support facilitative mastery. Next Stage Facilitation 3-day intensives weave together direct teaching (content) with group discussion and interactive practices, facilitation demonstration, embodiment practice, and facilitation practice.
