In what seems like a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, we worked and created with people face-to-face. The pandemic invaded, and suddenly, we needed to pivot on a dime from being in the same room to being on the same Zoom. Yet Zoom and other video-conferencing meetings and workshops can actually be invigorating and relaxing, inclusive and effective when they’re well-planned and facilitated.
That's why, in an age when many of us are weary of staring at boxes of colleagues, collaborators, and peers on our screens, I offer individual and team facilitation to help you become become a facilitation Jedi, finding the force within you to exude calm, strength, and clarity. In truth, strong facilitators have always been Jedis, guiding the energy of the group or team toward their most creative, intelligent, collaborative, and visionary work.
Without The Jedi, There Can Be No Balance In The Force. - Lor San Tekka, The Force Awakens

My Facilitation Experience
Some of us are born facilitators, unable to sit on our hands when we see how much good facilitation can save the day. I’ve been drawn to organizational development at large and group process in particular since I started facilitating meetings with my temple youth group as a teen. Since then, I’ve facilitated hundreds of meetings and workshops, studied with great teachers and programs, and trained many facilitators extensively through Goddard College's Transformative Language Arts concentration and businesses and organizations trainings. I regularly teach facilitation classes with Joy Roulier Sawyer.
