How to facilitate many selves in a big group and involve every attendee at the same time? This workshop provides both depth of the process and a wise way to apply Voice Dialogue to a group with the most important aspects of life: power and vulnerability and the archetypal/ universality of selves
Workshop „Advanced Group Facilitator’s Class“
English without translation
October 1st – 6nd 2019
Group size max 9 participants
This course is the third event in Berlin and addresses Facilitators who already participated in previous Group Facilitation Workshops of J’aime ona Pangaia and those who want to learn about the method by also being available as subject for the advanced students.
In the Workshop every participant will have an intense session and witnesses the beauty of complexity within the psyche and beyond.
The Workshop will offer an introductory day for beginners on October 1st. J’aime will provide condensed theoretical and practical insights to the method, so that the beginners can easily join the practicing group from October 2 nd on.
Group Facilitation is a process that was developed by J’aime over many years and is an approach that involves all present group participants in a given Voice Dialogue session – even in a group with many attendees. (read more about it in the text below).
The Group Method is built, in part, on Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves, a method pioneered by clinical psychologists Hal and Sidra Stone, Ph.D.’s.

- Interactive teaching from J’aime ona Pangaia

Read more about J’aimies findings:
Over the past 13 years of teaching Voice Dialogue in Thailand without the aid of facilitation staff, I was prompted to develop this method as a way to bring the experience of Voice Dialogue facilitation, the experience of selves and even the emergence of the aware ego process in a way that engaged 10 – 16 participants at a time. This has also served to keep all the program participants (up to 30 people) fully engaged during facilitation demonstrations – even as the demo’s have all been done through language translation. I now regularly do a five day program (in Thailand and in the US) for people who are already experienced with being facilitated and who want an immersion experience using this method. We call it the “The Practice” and it’s a five day retreat for 8 people. I had also brought this method to Hal and Sidra’s programs in the past when I’ve staffed there and I’ve incorporated it into all my group teaching programs. I’ve demonstrated it once at a Paris Convergence of Voice Dialogue teachers and I’ve now taught this in three separate location over the past 4 years in Europe (England, France, Germany and Belgium).
I have found that the way that I developed this method also serves as a powerful teaching aid, since it very clearly illustrates the relationship between power and vulnerability and the archetypal/ universality of selves. All the participants of the group facilitation process are supported in engaging and separating from selves. There are a variety of ways to use this method, and many will be explored in direct practice over the week.
