Experiential Immersion and Practice for Developing Facilitators

Next Stage Facilitation develops facilitative leaders, facilitators, hosts and leaders of groups into more naturally spontaneous, confident and insightful guides. Through a balanced exploration of inner and outer dynamics, with ample experimentation, advanced facilitation practice, and personalized feedback, participants learn how to go off script, guide the energy of any group, and handle more complexity with ease.

An integrative, whole-person approach

When we are learning at our best, we are developing who we are inside, which changes how we engage outside. This puts us in the optimal zone of experimentation, risk taking, and reward. Who we are, how we think, what we do, and what we care about are brought together in a seamless and satisfying experience. We are not just learning, we are becoming more self-aware, more connected to others, and more alive with purpose and possibility.

Becoming more masterful

The Next Stage addresses three key dimensions that define an excellent facilitator:


To build our confidence and feel more ease, we have to look inside. Increasing self-knowledge and uncovering our blind spots enables us to grow.


The ability to sense and respond to the group in real time comes from a facilitator’s sensitivity, openness, and attention. When we are aware of the many small, invisible and subtle sources of information in the room, we can adapt and respond in the moment.


Having a rich repertoire of tools, activities and interventions happens through exposure to facilitative mastery, through practice, and through experimentation. When we are engaged in repeated practice and feedback cycles with others, we just get better—period.
