It is said that nouns not exist.
Only the verbs.
Nothing is as solid as it seems.
The living room table is 99% empty, and before it was a tree and then, perhaps, poop of termites.
You were also a tree before. And poop.
Everything is a constant process of changing, growing, experiencing, listening, recognizing …
IMPORTANT: This is a double workshop of 4 sessions that covers both the 1st and the 2nd shift. It is designed for people who want in addition to the intensive course, to train more extensively in facilitation and music. Therefore it is necessary to sign up for this workshop both in the 1st and 2nd shift.
It is aimed at all people interested in facilitation and music regardless of the level of musical knowledge.
If you have any questions regarding the level of the courses and workshops, please visit our FAQ.
Facilitation focuses on PROCESSES of change. Observing the process a person or group is going through is looking at what is happening to them emotionally, what path they have chosen to reach their goal, what roles are at stake, and what things are lurking like ghosts in the room because nobody dares to name them …
To facilitate is to create an environment of trust, closeness and respect where all voices can be heard. We can speak of light and also of darkness … Recognize and thank, congratulate and give us. Also name discomforts, embarrassments, fears and needs, however ridiculous or obvious they may seem … And when everything has been said, the solution emerges on its own. Because it has also been said, among all.
In music we are witnesses of how delicate this world is. CREATIVITY needs a very clean way, and when REACTIVITY comes into play, it becomes a mess, and it gets blocked.
And on the other hand music itself is a wonderful tool to learn to know us: listening, trust, connections, the richness of the diversity of voices (timbres, rhythms, textures) and their enormous capacity to coexist at the same time and build something much bigger and richer than any of the voices separately …
That’s why music and facilitation have a lot to share and so much to teach us together.
– Introduce the bases of the facilitation as a personal and group tool (s) and how to apply them, in particular, in music groups. – Transmit a perspective of music as a mirror and teacher of life. – Use music (in addition to body, voice, movement …) to investigate personal and group processes and bring clarity.
Learn Rythm to learn to “pace” with the group, both musically, emotionally, creatively …
– Discover the planes of communication, both musical and verbal (or other …). – Promote listening, respect, trust and love in a practical way.
We will work on some of these concepts:
– The Group Field. What is generated in the center of space? How does it affect us?
– Emotional Management. What do I feel? What message does this emotion bring me? Ways to express it
– Communication skills. Learn to listen Speak clearly. Plans of communication. Dialogue.
– Inquiry. The creativity of the infinite ways to achieve something.
– Decision making. Who makes the decisions? How are they taken?
– Power, Rank and Leadership. May l? Is there power without oppression? Are we all the same?
We will work both in a large group and in small groups, as well as in couples as individuals. We all share differently in the privacy of a couple than in large groups. We will open explanatory spaces, others to share opinions and visions and
also spaces for personal reflection.
And with this choice we will introduce the concept of FRACTALITY that goes through both the music paradigm and the facilitation paradigm. What happens inside me, is intrinsically related to what happens in a relationship between two people and also in a group. The personal, interpersonal and group levels are linked together.
Much of the time we will try to get away from the words to be the music, the body or silence who speak.
I grew up in Greece and at age 15 I started to participate in horizontal groups of social and political action. At 25 I went on a trip looking for the answer to the question: What must be done to become humanly sustainable and expand our collectives? The search led me to the eco-village of Lakabe, where I have lived for 10 years. Although I have not found a concrete answer to the question, my training in facilitation and my own experience of active participation, give me important tools to understand and support processes. They have also brought me closer to the realities, strategies and needs of groups with another culture from which I come.
For the last 5 years I have been accompanying several groups in a constant way and many of them intermittently and giving courses. I did the formation of the IIFACe institute, and the training as it facilitates.

music, but also to create a caring environment where everyone feels recognized.
