SkillSkill 10: Engaging with Descernment
How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

Very well. Respectful and courteous treatment of co-facilitator during intros contributes to a sense of safety for all. Inviting group participation in the check-in also inspires a sense of safety and welcome. In general, you are able to create a welcoming, safe presence.

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

Very well, especially in using opening "salvo" to demonstrate learning from your CE feedback regarding compassion as a motivation, not an action.

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

Fairly well. It is difficult to do in this setting and a demonstration of what you would say to a group before breaking out. Some of your introduction to the breakout seemed more focused on instructing your co-facilitators how to do it. Overall, gave a sense of how the exercise would be carried out.

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.

Great opening, concise recap of previous week's work, and remembering to go ti group for their experiences relative to systems.

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.

Could have been more responsive or affirming of group input in favor of taking more time to share your own insights, although your insights were relevant and CIT-consistent (which can also be a way of affirming any similar experience that group members may have also had). The sense of safety may have been compromised a bit by introducing a slide with the statement that a co-facilitator would be covering that content, and then covering the initial content yourself before going to your co-facilitator. As is true for most of us, there is often more to learn about how to make sessions more about participants than ourselves.
