|Skill||Skill 10: Engaging with Descernment|
|How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.|
This tends to be more difficult for "interior" co-facilitators to demonstrate than those who go first. Your solid presence provided a sense of safety, as did circling back to participants for their input, which communicates that their thoughts are valuable welcome. You also pointed out that the views you shared when introducing new material were your own. Showed vulnerability without oversharing. This also contributes to a sense of safety.
|How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.|
Very well. Good work on providing and intro to the steps included on Engaging with Discernment slide/Dalai Lama's steps, going to the group for their experience of the steps, affirming group input, asking a question about which skill would help us with (not) making assumptions.
|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.|
Demonstrated facility with the material, good balance of sharing personal experience in a way that communicated vulnerability without making it all about you.
|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.|
Given how tight two hours is to get through the material for each skill, could have spent less time on "steps" slide. Although this does not come naturally in the Facilitator-in-Training sessions, in an actual session in which you are facilitating this material, it is important to keep circling back to and referencing their drawings from the previous skill.
