A special note about the facilitation training and its requirements. We approach this work knowing that we are all learning how to walk the path of reconciliation - in short, none of us are experts. We know that true reconciliation comes from the creation of safe space in order to engage in authentic dialogue. It is for that purpose, we require facilitators to have a basic understanding of our approach to this work. The materials used in the Reflection Guides are complex and the activities and group facilitation requires skill. This is one of the reasons that we have decided against having the Reflection Guides available for general reading.
For Canadian congregations, congregational approval and a $25.00 participation fee will be required to register for the training. Community groups and Unitarian congregations will require approval for facilitators to attend and the participation fee is $50.00. Congregational support simply means that your minister or religious educator knows that you have signed up for the facilitation training and are in agreement that you'd make a good facilitator in this field. This topic is sensitive in nature and need to be able to respond to sensitive group dynamics and responses to the material being provided. Watch the CUC e-news for specific dates.
