Integral Facilitation – 10 Directions program notebook
This year, I’m enrolled in an Integral Facilitation intensive certification, led by Diane Hamilton and Ten Directions faculty. The first part was a heart-opening, rewarding, intensive week of training in Budapest. Since facilitation questions are also questions about life and being human, here’s part of my personal sketchbook.
What has brought me here is two main things, so far. The program’s focus is on the inner work called Self as Instrument, which is different than learning new facilitation tools or exercises. I’m setting my intention to deepen my facilitation presence with groups; setting this intention will help focus my attention on this change over the next six months. The second thing that brought me here was a curiosity about the 4-Quadrant model and Ken Wilber’s methodology: overall, it’s in service of accessing a collective awareness that is bigger than one person. In these global times of struggle – but also hopefulness for more. As a facilitator, my wish is for all of us to be able to move into what enables us to be most human, and to make wise choices together.
Big thanks to Rebecca Ejo Colwell for planting this seed for me so many years ago, to all of the faculty at 10 Directions and especially Diane Hamilton, and to all of my fellow IF participants on this journey. I’ll keep sharing my notebook as we go along.
