The Facilitation and Leadership course is a path of personal and collective transformation. On a personal level, human beings have to overcome old relational patterns, especially those that make us distrustful, reactive and often aggressive, and develop a more empathetic and compassionate communication, as well as a creative attitude towards life.
At the community level, human beings have to overcome old structures of collective organization, especially those that contain domination and abuses of power, and create organizations that imitate and sustain life, creating adequate spaces for participation, cooperative work and mutual learning.
The Facilitation and Leadership course is a proposal developed by José Luis Escorihuela, ‘Ulises’, based on long experience as a group facilitator and on a solid theoretical basis, which includes Social Psychology, Theory of Complex Systems, the Work of Processes (A. Mindell), Integral Theory (K. Wilber), or Nonviolent Communication (M. Rosenberg), among others.
