WHC Teacher Training — Brattleboro, VT
Beginning April 2018
Become a Whole-Hearted Teacher
Whole Heart Connection is more than the basic set of 12 skills taught in intro workshops and detailed in the WHC Workbook. It is also includes further skills for increasing our own resiliency, assisting others, and creating spaces in which these skills can be taught and learned. Resiliency and assisting skills are the focus of the Mentorship series, and the Teacher Training helps us take the next step into discovering and honing our teaching skills.
Who Is This Training For?
The WHC teacher training has as its essential requirement a willingness and an ability to tend the group heart. This means that students in the teacher training group are dedicated to being present in a way that is not solely about their own healing. It’s fine to be interested in personal healing — it’s fine to need it desperately! But there is a level of healing that only happens when we dedicate ourselves to being in service to the whole, inclusive of ourselves. This is the province of teacher training.
Teacher training will only be offered to (former or current) mentorship students who are already developing and demonstrating their capacity to take responsibility for tending the group heart on a me-first basis. Mentorship classes and assisting are great places to develop these skills.
Applicants must be self-responsible and have reliable assisting skills. Must be willing and able to tend the Group Heart. Must have rudimentary Giving/Receiving Critique skills. Must be willing to be spoken about in public.
1) Healing vs. Walking
2) Tending group spin
3) Power dynamics
4) Intervention (esp. around voices, give/receive critique)
5) Facing evil
