    Disturbances in Systems as Agents of Change:  Power Dynamics and the Art  of Communication

    facilitated by Gill Emslie + Peter Ammann

Power dynamics and conflict go hand in hand in every area of our lives. From the unconscious marginalization of parts of our own experience, to the way we engage in, win or loose battles with our partners, family members, colleagues, counterparts in other organisations, and even between organisations and countries, the dynamics of fear based competition undermine some of our best laid plans and longings.

Based on Dr. Arnold Mindell’s Processwork, with its multi-dimensional framework and philosophy of deep democracy, this trans-disciplinary approach has embodied learning and increased awareness at its heart. The approach values an individual or group’s explicit goals and intentions while recognizing the wisdom hidden within their implicit dynamics. Challenges, conflicts, failures and emerging disturbances are transformed into fuel for creative transformation and growth.

We will use our group dynamics, and the relationships within our group, as a laboratory to practice facilitating polarizations, conflicts and tension. As a seminar participant, you will be challenged to explore the outer edges of your awareness, the place where you become destabilized but also transformation emerges.

  • You will learn more about your tendencies to adapt to or dominate others
  • You will practice effective ways to speak truth in a variety of challenging contexts
  • You will discover hidden diversity within conflicts
  • You will access your deepest sources of power and remain aware and able to facilitate dynamics of conflict and power in the midst of the heat.

Topics include:

Deep Democracy:

Inclusion of all diverse experiences, perspectives and voices

Process-oriented conflict transformation:

Discovering the potential and creativity embedded within disturbance 

Facilitation of emotional and non-rational aspects of conflict

Rank and power awareness

Working with the complexities of power dynamics and marginalization

Giving and receiving feedback across hierarchies

Inner work

Awareness of own inner diversity, bias and prejudice when in a facilitation role

Discovering and employing one’s own unique style and power

Whether you are a beginning or a seasoned facilitator, whether you work in the family, in the classroom, in diverse, multicultural groups and communities or with large scale, multiple stakeholder processes, these methods will increase your skills and confidence, support your individual style and teach you to bring all of your resources, passion and creativity to the successful outcome of your facilitation practice.

  • February 9-13 , 2018 MILAN –

    Exploring the Emerging Self: Working on the Edge, Personal Power and Meta-Position

facilitated by Bogna Szymkiewicz + Ana Rhodes

In this module, we are going to explore an edge of our identity and learn how to use the potential that lies beyond it.
Our Self is a process. We create our identities based on some experiences, leaving out these that do not fit to an idea of who we are or who should be. Yet on the other side of the edge there is a lot of hidden treasure: the emerging diversity of the Self to be discovered.
We will also start to explore our ability to Lead with presence, which means putting one’s personal psychology – including feelings, moods and thoughts – to the service of all the others in the group. This compassionate attitude is one of the most important meta-skills a leader can exercise. Its presence or absence determines the atmosphere in the field.
Ultimately, facilitation of our inner and outer experiences is like a Dance. We aim to become fluid in our ability to bring out and move between many roles in a field. To acknowledges and honor the silent parts, welcome criticism, and be able to take our own side as well the others side. To understand when we become one-sided and invite others to fulfill the leadership/facilitation role. Thus, in this way we start to enter in to our own sense of the eldership. Developing a wider sense of Space and Time.
The Elder, the deepest part of us is seasoned by the pain of failure, the joys of success, anger in the face of injustice, guilt from having acted unjustly, the loss of close ones through death, and her own mini deaths. So gradually we become a container for the whole. We become increasingly transparent to the on-going process of life and are there for all of the parts.

We will focus on:
– Noticing and recognizing signals of an edge while working with individuals, couples and groups
– Learning specific techniques to work on an edge
– The relationship between our internal edge, the context and our relationship
– Internalized oppression and the Critic: the reintragration of History and personal Power
– Developing meta-position while going to an unknown territory beyond the edge
– Discovering personal power hidden in each experience over the edge
– Unfolding our leadership abilities that are waiting to be used in the world: Leading from deep within.

  • June 22-26, 2018 NAPLES –

    Leadership and Eldership Tao: Innerwork as Essential Skill in Facilitation

facilitated by Peter Ammann + Bogna Szymkiewicz

 

A leader’s task is to understand, feel and express and support the direction where the group or organization wants to go in each particular moment. Nevertheless, people might get caught in hurtful conflicts, splinter into factions, burn out or fall into low moods if emerging processes are not facilitated. As facilitators, we need to expand our leadership by eldership: Embracing and being there for everybody, all parties and positions as well as for the universe and the planet. We need to welcome voices and information from all kinds of “realities” and follow the group’s processes including the phases people and groups naturally go through.

In this module we will learn:

  • how to take a stand and access our leadership qualities when needed
  • how to do inner work while facilitating groups, in the midst of the fire
  • how to listen to our bodies and connect to our deepest art – which brings us in contact with our life task and dreaming background

From there we will be able to perceive disturbances as stepping stones towards the greater goal and sustainable future.

Open seminar for all participants.

    Worldwork: from Conflict and Separation to Diversity in Communities

facilitated by Gill Emslie + Peter Ammann

WORLDWORK: Discovering Hidden Diversity in Conflicts and its Potential for Greater Community

The world has complex challenges that need all of our inputs, contributions and diversity to facilitate sustainable change. We will focus on skills and meta-skills (feeling attitudes) that bring awareness to the emerging field, spirit of community and multi-stakeholder engagement.

Based on Dr. Arnold Mindell’s Processwork, with its multi-dimensional framework and philosophy of deep democracy, this trans-disciplinary approach has embodied learning and increasing awareness at its heart. The approach values an individual or group’s explicit goals and intentions while recognizing the wisdom hidden within their implicit dynamics. Challenges, conflicts, failures and setbacks are transformed into fuel for creative transformation and growth. This approach brings awareness to the worldviews that inform our interventions, and enhances our perception and ability to facilitate this complex system of interactions and emergent processes in the moment, including subtle signals; atmospheres and disturbances that occur.

Topics include:

Deep Democracy: Inclusion of all voices, experiences and diverse experiences
Framing and welcoming disturbances
Skills to facilitate in-depth change processes with creativity and skill
Facilitator development and innerwork skills
Different communication styles
You will

Practice “sitting in the fire’ amidst complex systems of interactions
Discover more about your tendencies to marginalize and exclude parts of the field
Explore how the system outside you had a correspondence with your own body feelings and intuition.

Perhaps you are a facilitator or leader working in local government, neighbourhood transformation and community development, or you are a group facilitator, community worker, leader or coach interested in collaboration and change. This workshop is for anyone interested in how to bring together diverse groups or topics in creative and transformation ways.
