FOUR PRINCIPLES OF A GREAT FACILITATOR
1. Teacher vs. Facilitator
A facilitator understands the difference between being a guide and an instructor. We will explore the idea that rhythm and expression is innate, and as facilitators it is our job to inspire it, rather than teach it. Your goal as a facilitator is to ALWAYS give the power back to the group.
2. Developing your facilitators radar
Using and developing all of your senses to best understand the dynamic needs of your group. This will ultimately allow you to use all of your knowledge and tools to their greatest potential and benefit.
3. Developing your tool belt
These are the games, tricks, techniques, and processes used inside and outside the drum circle. How you use your tools will be determined by the needs of your group.
Continuously reflecting upon, and refining your intentions are critical to your growth and understanding as a facilitator.
