In every group, community, and organisation, there are visible and invisible dynamics and roles playing out 'in the room'.
These dynamics and roles often take place ‘below the waterline’, meaning that they are not being noticed, acknowledged, or addressed. Both visible and invisible dynamics and roles affect how well a group, community, or organisation can create environments that are rich in member participation, diversity, creativity, effectiveness, cohesive disruption, and joy.
Embodied facilitation can help us disrupt unhelpful group norms and co-create helpful ones, encourage a rich diversity of member voices, perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds, embed group and organisation-wide reconciliation and repair, facilitate uncomfortable but urgent conversations with dignity and care, and make visible the dynamics and roles at play in the room.
Experiencing embodied facilitation can also help team and organisational leaders and stewards learn how to facilitate groups, communities, and organisations with more embodied care and attention.
THROUGH EMBODIED FACILITATION, WE CAN MAKE THE INVISIBLE, VISIBLE.
