|Skill||Skill 5: Impartiality and Common Humanity|
|How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.|
By opening the session with an acknowledgement of the recent tragedy in Pittsburgh, Teresa set a tone of care and concern for the group. The reminder to use learned skills was also quite appropriate.
|How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.|
The picture of the farmer plowing the field and your thoughts on it were new and insightful for the group. "The farmer wants to cultivate the whole field, not just a part of it". Your follow up thought on that was that this image can help us think about our sphere of care, expanding that, cultivating it, and when we practice more, we can change.
|How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
Your explanation of the group activity was very good and using the chat box for the follow up questions was great (even though not all the groups read them).
|How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
Very well done overall. Great clarification of the page numbers for the writing activity and the dialogue so everyone knew where to go for the activity.
|What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.|
Your care and concern for people is evident in your presence right from the beginning. You adapted well to the shift in the timing and reviewing the video content with the reminder to watch it on their own.
|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.|
Try to ask more open ended questions and allow for silence. Many of your questions could be answered with a "yes" or a "no" or another single word. Open-ended questions would naturally allow for longer responses. Also, giving folks more time to process and formulate an answer will help to enhance the discussion, even thought the long silence can seem awkward.
|Do you recommend this facilitator to become certified?||Yes|
