Dynamic Groups with Robin Clayfield


As of Monday 20th Feb I started the 'Dynamic Groups' 6 day workshop with Robin Clayfield at Eltham College, as part of my Permaculture Diploma.
This unit is all about community and facilitation, which means I am in my element!
This is more of a little Revision for me, but I will hopefully keep adding things that I recall. 
If you want more detail on these amazing processes you can buy Robin's book 'Teaching Permaculture Creatively' from her directly. This is an amazing resource, and although some of the processes and games may look a little child like, they work so well! I didn't even realize I was learning so much in such a short time. This workshop was incredibly inspirational, and has given me so many tools to work with, and increased my self confidence immensely!
