Forum Facilitation Training is Sat & Sunday 10am-6pm both days.We are calling on facilitators, community organizers, space holders, and transformational leaders to come and play with us in the field of ZEGG Forum.
This training will be applicable and developmental for all facilitators; whether your work is with groups, or one on one, you will gain skills and insights on supporting people in leaning into their most authentic expression.
Forum was created at ZEGG (www.zegg.de) (an intentional community in Germany) and its sister communities as a way of promoting transparency and mutual understanding among community members. ZEGG members found that decision-making meetings often got derailed because of emotional conflicts and undercurrents that were not known to or understood by all. In Forum, each individual’s experience could be seen and understood, leading to greater empathy and creativity in the community. Now, many residential and non-residential intentional communities have adopted Forum as a way to maintain ongoing connection, intimacy and understanding.
Shoshannah Crow and Sara Eden Moss have been organizers for NFNC Summer Camp for many years. They have both been continually inspired by the beauty and trans formative nature of ZEGG Forum when practiced in community settings.
Shoshannah Crow has been a Forum facilitator for 7 years and teaching communities how to facilitate for themselves for the past two. Shoshannah asked Sara Eden to work with her after her first year at camp; “The first time I saw Sara Eden engage with the Forum process I knew that I wanted to work with her. Her insights and compassion are invaluable.”
Sara Eden Moss has worked and trained as a facilitator for various communities since she was 18. Her love for transparency and connection brought her to Summer Camp where she fell in love with ZEGG Forum and began collaborating with and learning from Shoshannah. “Shoshannah’s facilitation flows with ease and a natural grace that is inspired from the very way she moves through her day to day life. It is a joy to work with her.”
When communities come together to witness what is alive in an individual, it helps people to see their shared humanity, and builds trust, connection and intimacy.Schedule:
