Facilitation Workshop

2:30 pm – 5:00 pm EST

In this session Jess and Danait from 4Rs Youth Movement will invite guests to look at facilitating through the lens of hospitality and will offer a breakdown on the Four-fold practice, a framework for facilitating that Jess often brings into her practice as a facilitator. They will talk about their facilitation crushes, and teachers, and share favorite tools and tricks, as well as some basic ingredients that every facilitator should have in their toolbox.

"Most of our work as facilitators is to notice and acknowledge each other's gifts and make an invitation to that person, to that group, to that community to keep giving those gifts. And that is the moment that facilitation becomes about building communities of love and appreciation, and communities of hope." - Jess 

Speakers: Jess Bolduc and Danait Mehreteab


Nature connections

5:15 pm – 6:15 pm EST

Carolynne will be guiding a sensory experience to connect participants with "Nature."  Please bring something/one from Nature to the session such as a feather, stone, shell, stick, small houseplant, or even a patient animal companion who is willing to sit with you during the guided experience.

Facilitated by CRE staff, this is a space to share, decompress, and connect with other participants. Several rooms will be available and participants are encouraged to choose which they'd like to spend time in: the sharing circle room for a quieter more intimate space, the game room where we'll be playing Zoom-friendly games, the hang out room for unstructured chats and visiting, or the talent show (look out for more info on how to sign up to share your talent!).

Self Esteem 

1:45 pm – 2:45 pm EST

Part of my theory is that we are born with an abundance of self esteem and through whatever circumstance and situation we lose it along the way. These self-esteem workshops are shaped and designed around the same process that brought me to my path.

Speaker: Susan Aglukark, O.C.


Managing Differences

A workshop offering tools to support people with being present with their nervous system and tapping into our internal resources. When we can be relaxed and resourced, we will have more capacity to move through challenging discussions and experiences.
