Very well. It tends to be more difficult for "interior" facilitators (those who did not introduce hthe presentation) to clearly demonstrate their creation of a safe space. Your presence provides and example of your warm and welcoming demeanor, which conveys as sense of safety.
Used Reflective Writing slide to change gears and introduce/describe the activity. Good summary of the discernment slide.
Very well. Interesting and probably effectively empathy-evoking approach to begin by asking participants to imagine themselves as one of the blind men. Nice touch. Very well and delightfully received instructions using a (the?) poem that tells the story of the divergent perspectives of each blind man, based on his limited relationship to the elephant.
Wonderful, warm presence that evokes sense of safety. Good addition of empathy-based instructions asking participants to imagine themselves as one of the characters in the poem, the use of which delighted participants.
Might have been better to avoid providing your thoughts when introducing the reflective writing exercise, to allow participants to create their own responses from scratch (sometimes, it's harder to think of examples other than the ones that were "pre-loaded" during the instructions).
Also, it seems like a small thing, but it's helpful to get in the habit of providing the page number on which the exercise if found.
