Friends from the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Germany came to learn how to get the most out of organizational meetings at their home Buddhist centers.
On this weekend we shared knowledge and experience both from Buddhist point of view and from the technical point of view of group facilitation. Everyone agreed that the ideal basis for joyful and efficient center meetings with meaningful results is an atmosphere of good style and respect for each others’ different qualities and skills.
We started with an introductory round in the garden, exchanging experience from our activities in the centers and meditation groups we are from. In the course of this weekend, we learned a lot about how to communicate without misunderstandings, how to overcome such and dissolve other hindrances in communication and group processes.
Last but not least, we became very aware that the goal is not to always be perfect in what we do – our common development is the most important thing – and to enjoy efficient team work together.
