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. The opening facilitator has the opportunity to set the tone. Conveyed competence/mastery, which helps create a sense that we are in good hands. Good work with the intro of co-facilitators, summary of how we move from compassion to action, check-in with group about experience over the last week in using the skills formally and informally, solid presence, affirmation of group input, moving on at an appropriate time, and statement that there would be more opportunities to share.

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

Excellent circle-back to the owl slide and two wings metaphor. Good use of slides to effectively change gears a bit and move to exercise. Good description of "Veil of Ignorance" quote slide. Some additional notes below.

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

Very well indeed. One of the best yet. Effective use of an example system that was likely non-triggering and has such a wide, complex and crucial enough to harm and/or benefit nearly every human being on the planet Provided good instructions, and described the debrief.

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.

Solid, welcoming, competent/knowledgeable presence. Clear instructions of a well-organized exercise and description of debrief. Appropriate introduction of Christian-specific metaphor from the Book of Esther that was relevant to and illustrative of the material.

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.

Overall, no real need for improvement (only opportunities for growth :0). One specific opportunity that may have been available was to engage the group by asking for their thoughts on the "Veil of Ignorance" quote. That quote seems to have a lot of potential for synthesizing and deepening understanding of CIT concepts (including impartiality, common humanity, interconnectedness, etc.).
