My ToT Thailand Experience


I have just completed Gaia Education Training of Trainers (ToT) in southern Thailand as a part of the Gaia certified Awakening Leadership Training where I learnt and practiced amazing ways to facilitate sessions and also some of the meta skills that go beyond traditional training methods.

I saw the effectiveness of participatory facilitation, in which trainers and participants are able to co-create the process in a way that enriches the knowledge and the experience gained in each session. Gaia ToT in Thailand was a perfect combination of new techniques with the best Asian teachers.
