WHO IS PRACHA HUTANUWATRA?

Pracha Hutanuwatra was an engaged Buddhist activist, social critic, new paradigm leadership trainer and mentor. Pracha established the intensive Training of Trainers where participants gain skills, concepts and attitudes to work in their local communities, appropriately identifying needs and actions with the local people towards sustainable, regenerative futures.

Our dear teacher and mentor Pracha Hutanuwatra passed away on 13 May 2023.  He has left behind a huge legacy in the many students, colleagues and friends whose lives he inspired to ‘be the change’.

“Decision making is education
Relationship is education
Self-cultivation is education”

– Pracha Hutanuwatra

WHAT IS PRACHA HUTANUWATRA'S TRAINING OF TRAINERS LEGACY?

This special Legacy ToT will stay as true as possible to Pracha’s incredible teaching that he developed over decades. Every aspect of human interaction needs facilitation. 

Mindful participatory facilitation is an invaluable skill for leaders in a shifting paradigm as it is equalising and empowering rather than hierarchical and dominating. In this experiential training participants will co-create a safe space and gain ample facilitation practice in a supportive environment. 

They will deepen awareness and experience in how to teach, facilitate and train people by enabling collaboration among a community of learners. Participants will flourish in a dynamic balance of mindfulness practice and open experimentation within the design and facilitation of holistic education sessions. 

The course will inspire you to know what you are most deeply called to teach and why this kind of empowerment education is critically important for the future of life on Earth. The training will be certified by SEM College & Gaia Education. Content will be adapted and designed to meet the needs of participants drawing from the following topics. This training forms one of the requirements to become a certified Gaia Education Trainer.
