Event Description

Explore the concepts "third space" and the "imaginal world" in the teaching, training, facilitating, coaching, and mentoring relationship. Third space and the imaginal world are places of expanded knowing and intuitive wisdom; they are the great unknown of inspiration and possibility. We could define the imaginal as a realm that is just beyond our ordinary, everyday rational intellectual capacities. When groups of any size come together in meaningful ways for a shared purpose, there is a larger wisdom available to draw upon, a wisdom that lies within the center of the group itself. Themes include:

• Exploring structure and structurelessness

• Using creative expression as a way toward expanded group knowing

• Working with other people as a creative process of embracing the unknown

• Teaching from a place of higher vision and intuitive knowing

• Embracing group resistance and conflict

Each participant will connect with and develop his or her own voice, personal vision, and unique leadership style. This workshop is recommended for all in the teaching and helping professions, and it also is useful for those preparing to teach, coach, mentor, or facilitate for the first time. It may be particularly helpful for those who sometimes experience resistant or difficult audiences or clients, and for those who simply wish to lead groups with more skill, heart, and integrity.
