John McCluskey and Viviane Ephraimson-Abt

November 4–6, 2011

Tuition $215 + 2 nights

During a council, our individual truth is expressed and heard in a deeply respectful way. Within this safe space, skillful communication can happen whether at work, school or home, and within the larger community. When we speak authentically and listen intentionally, we can transform ourselves and our society. In this workshop, we will review the fundamentals of council participation and facilitation, including techniques for creating a safe environment, the art of intentional listening and speaking, and other council forms. We will develop skills to bring the council practice into our personal life, community and profession.
