Using a Philosophy for Communities facilitation approach – a training course for facilitators

14 October 2021 - 25 November 2021
00:00 - 00:00


Philosophy for Communities (P4C) is a way of creating a community of enquiry to think and reason together. It provides a group with a structure to participate in rigorous discussion about questions that matter and a methodology to explore and think about belief, values and ethics. Do we see the world in the same way? How important is art? Should we always tell the truth? Equality, integrity and authenticity are core to the method. This approach creates a positive and fun environment for deep discussion that can be used within any community including those that are intergenerational.

This course will provide experienced facilitators with an accessible introduction to making use of P4C as part of their facilitation practice. We will focus on its use in a Quaker context. The course is planned to connect with a bi-monthly series of P4C enquiries to provide further experience of the method and where appropriate, you will have the opportunity to assist with facilitation.

Live sessions are every Thursday Fortnightly, first session on 14 October at 19:00-21:00 (UK time)
