1:30 pm – 4:00 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
