Early morning 8 September 2018. A beautiful sun rise on the local train station in Driebergen. I am on my way to The Old Swan and Minster Mill in Minster Lovell. The purpose of this journey is the 3rd phase of the 2018 Facilitator Development Program by Gita Bellin & Associates. An amazing program. Life changing and in a very pittoresk setting, the famous Cots Wolds in the UK. No visa required, routine checks at customs. @UK friends, Can we please keep it this way?
Together with my friend and colleague Reinoud, we are supporting Gita to deliver this amazing program. The purpose is to grow and develop facilitators of transformation. Capable of delivering the GBA Foundation course to anyone. The participant group of about 20 people comes from all over the world, India, Australia, multiple countries in Europe and the Middle East, Amerika and Singapore.
The third phase of FDP is about essence. We can learn all the modules by heart, know the way they are structured, timing etc. However, if we do not know and hold the essence of the module, the meaning and purpose of the module will water-down to a superficial version of the original. Participants learn about their essence and about the essence of the work. One week from now, participants, including myself and the other support team facilitators will have experienced tremendous growth. And they will be transformed as human beings into a new version of themselves. I am grateful and humbled to be a part of this.
