Groupwork/Facilitation

Inner Reskilling for thriving, harmonious teams and communities.

Learn to master the inner skills necessary to thrive in a world of rapid change, extreme circumstances and conscious evolution.

How to connect authentically and work co-creatively with others and the natural world for:

  • effective and peacefully-productive teams, organisations, small businesses.
  • genuine, heartfelt and fulfilling relationships in small groups.
  • personal and group resilience, stress reduction, burnout prevention, reconciliation.

This work is suitable for forward thinking small businesses, organisations and groups involved in education, community wellbeing and resilience, practical sustainability. Much of it is facilitated through circle processes, which have been used for thousands of years. They help us to access the heart of the peaceful community culture we’re all capable of co-creating in a way that’s accepting, egalitarian and forward-thinking.

I offer short, introductory workshops of 1 or 2 days, longer courses, ongoing group coaching and facilitation face to face or online, by agreement and in collaboration.
