Facilitation Master Class (Mostly Online)

08 - 11 December 2020 (Online)

Join us for a Feast of Facilitation Mastery: an 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. The theme of this one is to feast in facilitation mastery - unleashing the power of imagination, play and creativity.

As a celebration after a huge year of changes and adaptation into a new way of working as facilitators worldwide, we are inviting anyone who is inspired to join us at our delicious feast of facilitation mastery.

We are inviting experienced facilitators as well as any of our Zenergy Graduates, including Stage 1 Art of Facilitation Graduates. The Master Class will be accredited towards your diploma, should you decide to take that path with us.

The feast will be guided and held by Laurel and Simone together with Dale Hunter as our guest.

Whilst we have set aside 4 days for the programme, we are inviting all participants to create the programme together from a blank canvas using the Zenergy framework and your own leading edges. This might result in only a limited amount of time online and the rest in our environments. Anything is possible.

In bringing together the power of of imagination, play and creativity; your own leading edge for growth; and whole-person facilitation you can stretch your leading edge to embody the skills ans qualities that will serve you in a changing world.

You identify your own areas for growth - your self identified ‘leading edge’, and receive coaching from the programme leaders; and with the assistance of the group take them towards facilitation mastery.

Bring your ‘leading edge,’ and your willingness to play and explore wholeheartedly to attain mastery. 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.
