How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.

The slides were used in a very appropriate manner to help facilitate conversation and keep the session moving the way it was intended. The slides were used to enhance dialogue and conversation and help participants understand the concepts by putting words and pictures together for greater understanding.

How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.

Asking questions to start conversation was excellent (specifically related to impartiality). This style invites dialogue and conversation. We want folks to come to their own conclusions about the material. Asking questions of the participants helps draw out their thoughts and impressions.
Good amplification and personalization of concepts.
Very good work asking for final thoughts before moving on.
Your authenticity came through very clear and that was much appreciated and is a great strength.

How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.

Perhaps provide a bit more explanation of the sun metaphor when discussing impartiality, it was kind of left hanging a bit.
When working with a partner, try to have a bit more cohesion. This also comes with practice and a steady "partner" with whom you can facilitate.
This is in only applicable in the training setting: perhaps ask for fellow FITs ("masquerading" as actual participants) for their impressions of activities/video would be a more helpful simulation of an actual group is describing the activity/video.

Do you recommend this facilitator to become certified?Yes
