|Skill||Skill 10: Engaging with Descernment|
|How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.|
Creating a safe and non-threatening space is something that comes so naturally to you, it's hard to pin down just how you do it. Part of it is in your ready willingness to invite and readiness to allow participants to engage with the material. Also, you are very affirming of participant feedback, even when it isn't highly relevant or falls a bit flat.
|How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.|
Very well, especially in providing background and summarizing the interaction between compassion and wisdom/discernment. Good explanation of the Engaging with Discernment slide and then going to the group for input to increase engagement in and understanding.
|How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.|
Creating a warm, open, welcoming and respectful space. Clear and quiet mastery of the overall material. Going to group time and again for their input rather than trying to assert your input/viewpoint ahead of others.
|How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.|
Your calm quiet presence is a great strength that is hampered only by your tendency to speak at a low volume. If you can find a way to turn your volume knob up two or three clicks on the dial, you will be all the more effective.
|Do you recommend this facilitator to become certified?||Yes|
