We’re launching our first Facilitating Stories for Impact training AND we’re looking for four incredible humans to facilitate our 2020 monthly gatherings.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? An opportunity to learn the RFRS facilitation process, discover how to incorporate empathy and generous listening into your daily life, and understand how to create safe spaces for honest storytelling. AND, if you’re interested, this means an opportunity to facilitate a season of RFRS monthly gatherings in 2020 (with our team’s support, of course!)

WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR? Are you interested in cultivating communities centered around vulnerable sharing and generous listening? Are you an advocate for connecting with our shared humanity and building bridges instead of highlighting differences? Do you want the tools to create your own spaces for storytelling? Then this training is for you.
