Greater Carolinas Area
I-Group Facilitator Training (IGFT)
June 6-7, 2015 • Raleigh, NC
I-Group Facilitation is the art of directing a process in which a man discovers a deeper truth about himself, others, and the world. In the IGFT we explore how to pace facilitation, ask good questions, and practice skills for developing powerful intuition. Over the two days you will have an opportunity to practice your facilitation skills in six processes, being the facilitator, being facilitated and being an observer.
The Northern California Primary Integration Council developed this training over the last three years. The MKP USA I-Group Council Steering Committee reviewed and approved the curriculum and is now beginning a rollout of this new I-Group training for MKP Areas across the country. David McLeod and Tony Camuti are the presenters.
This training has been developed not as a replacement for the PIT training, but as a supplemental training specifically aimed at improving and honing I-Group facilitation skills.
Location: Angel Space • 3111 Lake Woodard Drive • Raleigh, NC 27604
Schedule: Saturday, IGFT Day 1, 9:00 am to 6:30 pm., Sunday, IGFT Day 2, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

We will then ask you to donate an additional sum to the deposit you paid for the weekend, based on your experience of the weekend, your understanding of the cost to put the weekend on, and your ability to pay. This will be explained again.

Presenters: David McLeod and Tony Camuti, members of the MKP Northern California, I-Group Curriculum and Training Council (IGCAT), have developed this new training over the last three years. The MKP USA I-Group Council Steering Committee has reviewed and approved the curriculum.
We will explore how an I-Group Facilitator shows up:
- Outrageously curious
- Empathetic, compassionate, non-judgmental
We will also explore some components of what a Facilitator Does:
- Speaks to be understood
- Uses silence
- Is self-managed
- Watches the man, meets him where he is and follows him
- Uses mindful intrusion
- Verifies – “What I heard w..”
- Clarifies – Three words that never fail: “Tell me more”
- Asks powerful questions
- Is open to feedback
You will learn how to pace facilitations, how to make good use of questions, and how to facilitate six processes. Throughout the two days we will work in groups of three with a staff man. All will have an opportunity to practice facilitating a process, to be the man being facilitated, and to be an observer of the process.
Here are comments from men who have attended this training:
“Exceeded my expectations. Workshop was great! Lots of practice opportunities and working with all leaders/presenters. Cards for processes are awesome.”
“I was stoked with the clarity and simplicity of the processes chosen (not too many, very effective) and the way things were presented,(always giving us a preview of what’s to come, good balance of practice, lecture, good timekeeping)”
“We really dug deeply into the most basic core processes. I learned a ton about things that I already thought I knew…Great training!”
“ I was thrilled that the first section of the training was a bunch of ‘tools’/practices thatn related to the most fundamental part of facilitating-listening effectively…”
“Awesome training. Exceeded my expectations”
“Amazing chemistry, great trainers, Fantastically useful content.”
