Building Capacity in Independent Facilitation – OIFN Shared Learning Events

Conscious Listening and Speaking

Led by Judith McGill of LifePath Facilitation and Training

Tuesday, March 1, 2022 AND Thursday, March 3, 2021

10:00am – 3:00pm Eastern each day

We are called to find a way to listen with our entire being to what matters the most to the people we serve and our family members who live with a disability. Our aim is to meaningfully come to know those we serve so that we can support them set the pace and direction of change. Today, conversation is skewed by a barrage of questions with little space left to have something new emerge spontaneously in our speaking and listening.

This two-day, in-depth course offers participants an expanded imagination of what it takes to be truly present in a conversation and hold space. Through personal reflection and dialogue, participants will have opportunities to explore new ways to approach conversations and practice what it takes to transform our relationships with others.

“The reflective nature of this webinar encouraged me to grow as an independent facilitator and to become more in tune with the possibilities that can exist if we are willing to walk with people and truly listen with our whole being to what they are telling us, as well as the possibilities that exist if we are willing to look a and be conscious of our own prejudices.” – Past Participant

“Judith has figured out the fine line between too much information and not enough, providing a surprising depth to such a short amount of time.” – Past Participant


OIFN Shared Learning Events are designed for people living with disabilities, family members and/or loved ones, and aspiring, new, and experienced independent facilitators.

Courses will be held virtually using Zoom Video Conferencing and delivered in an interactive format, to include a combination of presentation, small group work, reflective exercises, whole group dialogue, and invitations to do some reading and reflection prior to the sessions.
