Gaia Education’s Training of Trainers (ToT) programme was a truly empowering and enlivening experience. I stretched my skills and built on new ones, elevating my facilitation tool kit to the next level. My biggest take away was an inner sense of confidence in my facilitation, voices of anxiety (Will my audience like my work? Will I get through all my content? Will my points be understood?) stilled and a quiet sense of knowing that I am enough, ready and able to share my passions with the world, grew. Emergent facilitation is truly the way forward in collaborative design learning frameworks.
