     Introduction to Council – Aveiro, Portugal

    With Rob Dreaming

    Council is an ancient form and modern practice that is finding increasing use among groups that want to move from hierarchical power structures to a model in which initiative, responsibility and leadership are shared by everyone – a method to support group processes and personal development, for vision and clarifying purpose, decision making, honouring achievement, for reflection, conflict management, peace and reconciliation work, celebration and for discovering the deeper, often unexpressed needs of individuals and organizations.

    This two-day residential introduction training is open to people who want to get to know Council and use the method in their professional and/or private life.

    Participants will identify useful practices for self and group facilitation, develop communication skills and the ability to be present in each moment, explore with tools offered in response to our own particular and collective needs and questions, receive guidance from over 15 years of working council practice plus teachings handed down.
