Facilitation Master Class (Melbourne / Online)

30 November 2021 to mid-February 2022

A powerful experiential training programme in which participants develop their skills and understanding of facilitation around their identified leading edges.

Master Classes are events for experienced group Facilitators and focus on developing advanced skills in facilitation.

Using all the Zenergy methods and tools the master class is designed to enable you integrate and adapt to a new context for whole person facilitation that fits your situation. Usually reserved for experienced Zenergy Graduates we will consider applications from Stage 1 Art of Facilitation Graduates and other experienced facilitators who want to expand their facilitation excellence. The Master Class will be accredited towards your diploma, should you decide to take that path with us.

The Master Class will be guided and held by Laurel and Simone together and may include other Zenergy Trainers with Dale Hunter as our guest.

You identify your own areas for growth - your self identified ‘leading edge’, and receive coaching from the programme leaders along with the support from your peers. As leaders and coaches we will work alongside you. You will also have the opportunity to coach and be coached as you each facilitate sessions.

Everyone's leading edge is unique but examples could include:

1) Something you feel is a stretch in your facilitation (in Self; 1:1; and/or Group Facilitation)

2) Something you want to learn to expand your toolbox (e.g. New processes like Open Space ...)

3) Something you are avoiding in your portfolio ... (like "Conflict" or "Strategy" or "Creativity" or "Purpose Development")

4) Something you are already good at and like to develop further Mastery in ... (e.g. Recording, Presence, Strategic Questions ...)

Expanding group consciousness
Presence and presencing

The work of the Master Class takes place within an environment of powerful presence and collective inquiry. Knowledge is generated within a context of a specific purpose or intent which allows for mastery to be accessed directly from the unknown.

This co-created new knowledge then immediately informs each participating facilitator’s work and is also integrated into the other modules of the Diploma of Facilitation. In this way the work of Zenergy is constantly in development as participative action research.


Two Master Classes are required modules towards the completion of the Zenergy Diploma in Facilitation. Stage One; The Art of Facilitation and Stage Two; The Essence of Facilitation are prerequisites for attending the Masterclasses.
