We have been in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province in central China, for the last several days. We are holding a Train-the-Trainer multi-day workshop to enable more people to be able to train others to become Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium facilitators.
By Sunday, we will have ten people who can train facilitators in the future here in Chengdu. That will make such a difference in growing the Awakening the Dreamer symposium in central China.
It’s been a wonderful few days and I’ve added some highlights of the experience so far.
Here is Maisa Arias (seated on the right). She is the international coordinator from The Pachamama Alliance. Our translator Jason is sitting next to her, along with two of the workshop’s trainees.
We’ve had a comfortable space to be together for this memorable weekend.
Here are a few pictures of me.
The training included an exercise from Joanna Macy’s work bringing in nature and sharing how it speaks to us and a game that illustrates the web of life.
Long-lasting friendships will come from this new group of facilitator trainers.
Maisa and I will fly to the coastal city of Qingdao on Wednesday to do the same training before heading home.
