This 3 phase, 12 day training is intended to teach graduates of the Matrix Comprehensive Training or the Matrix Essentials for Professionals, to facilitate groups in the Matrix model. This training is intended both as a refresher course to learn to facilitate the emerging Matrix model, and as an experiential, skill-building practicum in group facilitation. It also provides a strong, transformative container for continued personal and professional integration.
Individuals who have completed either the full Matrix Comprehensive Training or the Matrix Essentials for Professionals with significant experience in small group facilitation; and who want to deepen their practice of Matrix Leadership. The training is required for anyone who wants to co-facilitate future Matrix groups, workshops or trainings for Matrix Leadership or for those who wish to develop further skills in applying Matrix principles and practices in their own contexts.
Each phase is primarily a practicum in facilitation skills and understanding the Matrix model of group leadership. The theoretical foundation includes tracking the influence of group field dynamics and shifting paradigms from separation to interconnectedness. The process through 3 phases supports an extraordinary integration of personal and professional devlopment.
Debriefing the process of this training group through the Matrix lens and experiencing the interventions of the Matrix training staff as well as participants.
A member of a training in Chicago in 2000, I am here, standing tall and here to tell you that every moment of my training was a challenge. I found it enlightening, consuming, heart-filled, frustrating, exhilarating, annoying, joyful, terrifying, comforting, irritating, restoring, hysterical, healing and transforming. My experiences ran the gamut of human emotions and experiences, all of which can be summed up in two words: Life Altering. Issues of trust (in self and others), community, tolerance, growth - and more. Yes, ‘life altering‘. Definitely. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. This time, I‘d enter freely vs. kicking and screaming! As one insightful co-participant said: ‘This program could change the world.‘
