For Advanced Practitioners and Adventuresome Beginners

With Rosa Zubizarreta und Matthias zur Bonsen

from March 2 - 4, 2020 at Grube Luise, Bürdenbach I want to register (via website of Kommunikationslotsen)

Come join us for a three-day of immersion where we'll be ...

  • creating a field of shared inquiry
  • learning from one another
  • generating new insights
  • building community

Our Calling Question:

What have we been discovering in our practice of Dynamic Facilitation? What interesting experiments have we engaged in, and what have we learned as a result? And what are our "next steps", in bringing forward the gift of this practice?

The spark of this advanced deep dive, has been the publication of the second edition of the Dynamic Facilitation book, edited by matthias zur Bonsen and Rosa Zubizarreta. In response, Holger Scholz from Kommunikationslotsen has invited Rosa to come once again to germany and teach. And so the idea for this gathering was born ...

At the same time, the future that is calling to us, is one where there is a strong learning community and network of DF practitioners, applying our skills widely to respond to the needs that humanity is facing today.

Format for the Gathering

There will be many opportunities for sharing stories in response to the calling question, in both formal and informal ways. And, the centerpiece of our gathering is the extended opportunity to BE in a facilitated space, where we can witness and experience each other's unique ways of "doing DF".

We will do this through periods of exploring a "burning question" together, where different people will have an opportunity to facilitate. And, we will alternate the direct exploration of content with meta-level group explorations (also facilitated) about the process we have just been experiencing.

On the third day we will also have some time together in a (somewhat adapted) Open Space format.

Possible Experiences to Share

To whet your appetite we want to mention some of the experiences we already have available to potentially share, just among our planning team. And, we expect there will be many more, once we have more participants in the stew!

  • How to introduce DF to groups
  • Combining DF with elements of Convergent Facilitation
  • Empathy Circles as away of "warming up the group" for DF
  • Combining DF and World Café
  • Using DF for pilot groups
  • Creating a context for DF
  • Bringing the body and movement into DF

Expressions of Interest

To create a rich and balanced group, and also to begin the learning process even before arriving at the workshop, we are asking interested people to respond to a few questions beforehand. This includes something about your previous expereince with DF, why you are interested in attending, and what you might want to share at this gathering.
