A GIFT for the Women For Afrika community

MKP-South Africa will be hosting Gender-Inclusive Facilitation Training (GIFT) in March this year and have extended an invitation for women to attend.       

A special opportunity is available March 14 to March 21 to learn and refine your empowerment facilitation skills. This Gender-Inclusive Facilitation Training (GIFT) is for anyone above 18 who has or plans to have an empowerment circle where they will use these facilitation skills. You will learn some great processes for facilitating inner work - not just for Mankind Project (MKP) I-groups, but for other types of empowerment circles as well.

First run in Canada, GIFT will be:

Gender-Inclusive, with the goal to have roughly half of the participants and half of the staff who self-identify as women, trans or non-binary.
Open to all participants, with no prerequisite for participants to have done any previous related trainings through MKP.
Virtual, with multiple instruction staff of various genders connecting in from across Canada and South Africa.

Do you and others in your circle want to:

Be a "go-to-person" for facilitating inner work?
Experience just how powerful your circle can be?
Then the GIFT is exactly what you’re looking for!

On this course you will:

  • Learn Key Facilitation Skills: Speak to be understood; Use silence to open blocked paths; Meet people where they are; Use mindful Interruption to stay on track; Verify & Clarify; Ask powerful questions.
  • Learn to Show Up: Authentic, Self-Aware, Outrageously Curious, Compassionate, Non-Judgmental, Intuitive, Confident and Open to Feedback.
  • Deliver & Experience Five Facilitation Processes: Inner Child (ongoing issues); Look Who’s Talking (decision conflicts & shadow voices); Person in the Mirror (clearings, projections & blaming others); Symbol Extraction (stuck energy); and Owning Your Gold (self-doubt.)
  • Experience deep work, greater connection to other participants and more confidence to contribute to your I-Group / empowerment circle. A truly awesome training!

What others are saying about the first first two virtual GIFTs:

Wow That was amazing. I loved the online format.
Unlike any other training I've taken. Learned a TON!!!
 did more, put more energy into it all, got more out than I expected, than I imagined! People shared amazing parts of themselves.
I loved seeing the masculine and feminine weaving the knowledge together.
Intense, deep connections and joy, definitely one of the peak experiences of my life.
