- Join us for 3 days at Yulupa Cohousing in Santa Rosa. Anyone interested in learning how to foster shared leadership and create healthily cooperating, consensus based groups is welcome regardless of prior experience or knowledge. Homework and handouts are available before the workshop.
- Brush up on your skills or dive in for your first taste of live meetings with a cohousing community. This is the 7th training weekend produced by EBCOHO, and the second to last in the Bay Area. They are led by Laird Schaub and Betty Didcoct, intentional community veterans and facilitation training professionals. Laird is general secretary of the Fellowship for Intentional Community. Students are a mix of long-time members, new members, and seekers of different cohousing or cooperatives communities, but all backgrounds are welcome.
- Our hosts will provide meals for all of us, and overnight accomodations for all full students, and auditors as space is available. Yulupa members will also provide the grist for the mill --- offering real issues and real time meetings so trainee facilitators can work live (if you choose to) while supported by the trainers and classmates over the course of the weekend. Yulupa Cohousing is a wonderful host; they are bringing us back for a second time!
SCHEDULE: Thursday afternoon 5pm arrival, 6pm Dinner with community. Check-in circle at 7 -- newcomers and returnees welcome! First learning sessions and live sessions begin Friday morning, expect to be fully engaged until the end of the day Sunday!
PAYMENT arrangements must be made in advance to secure your spot. $400 full students; ($375 for EBCOHO supporting members). Includes all meals, accomodations, training time, handouts, free time, private consultations with Laird and Betty, and post-workshop written critique/guidance based on your goals. You can be a full trainee or auditor. Full students get to practice facilitating sessions with the client community, and receive one-on-one coaching and a written report with the teachers. Auditing is also possible for $275 or $250 for EBCOHO supporting members. Auditors can practice facilitating training group planning and evaluation sessions.
LEARNING sessions this weekend will cover: Delegation: How groups can delegate effectively—both to save the group time, get the work done and to develop vibrant communities. During live sessions, the focus will be on issues currently facing the community itself.
See the updated flyer at http://www.ebcoho.org/files for more details on the rest of the series, learning methods, and opportunities for host communities. The last weekend is June 6-9; the likely host will be the new Kingfisher Cohousing in Oakland.
