Zen Dialogue Facilitator Training
April 15, 2023 - April 16, 2023
Zen Dialogue is in many ways a synthesis of Zen and Mindfulness meditation traditions & Western psychology. It helps one deal with both the personal and the transpersonal aspects of the Self and assists in integration of both.
Those who have trained to be facilitators in the Zen Dialogue Method include nurses, psychologists, teachers, counselors and religious leaders. Many have found it an invaluable tool in working with clients, patients or group members in deepening their understanding of their practice and life.
If you wish to take the training, you must first attend a weekend Zen Dialogue Retreat. During that time, you’ll receive a good understanding in how the technique works in a group setting. Then, you’ll need to experience between 2 to 4 individual sessions with a certified facilitator. The individual sessions can be done before a group retreat also. After completing these prerequisites, you can apply to the training program.
