Leadership Training 3-Day Weekend in Qingdao, China

We have been in Qingdao in Shandong province on the east coast of China for the last several days. We held a Train-the-Trainer multi-day workshop to enable more people in this part of China to be able to train others to become Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium facilitators. qing_chinamap_317

Qingdao’s training had four very enthusiastic participants. An added pleasure was our translator, Peggy (third from the right), whose spirit enhanced our trainees’ understanding of the more esoteric parts of the training. Our weekend group also included me (on the right) and Maisa Arias (next to me), the international coordinator from The Pachamama Alliance.

Here are the four trainees, Maureen, Leo, Christine, and Michael, getting a chance to express their enthusiasm in one of the training exercises.

The Awakening the Dreamer facilitator community is a network of over 4,000 volunteer facilitators all across the world who support one another. We were able to reach out and share ideas with a facilitator on the other side of the world, in Brazil, through a videoconference call.

We now have four more people who can train facilitators in the future here in Qingdao. That will make such a difference in growing the Awakening the Dreamer symposium in this city on the Yellow Sea.

A celebratory meal was a fitting ending to a wonderful training weekend.
