Past HWH Training Workshops: 2013-14


HWH Training Workshop Module I – Introducing and experiencing HWH tools on Dec 6-8, 2013 in Bsous Silk Museum, Lebanon

The primary intention of this workshop is to offer a second HWH training to existing practitioners in the field based on a direct experience of new tools and approaches in the hope that the learning gained will be shared as widely as possible. As part of the training, participants will receive written step by step guidelines on how to apply the various tools taught. This three-day workshop has been designed to offer a series of learning experiences on the themes of self, the other and connection. The intention is to offer a replicable training to teachers, trainers and NGO workers. It is an opportunity to learn change processes by having a direct, personal experience. Beyond this it is hoped that the tools taught will be disseminated as widely as possible in the spirit of healing, reconciliation and forgiveness. The material taught will be tools-based. Tools that take their users through an effective change process: from awareness to expression to forgiveness and finally to new behaviour. The training was facilitated by Matthew Pruen and Alexandra Asseily. Click here for more details  

HWH Training Workshop Module II – Consolidating skills of using HWH tools on Feb 28 – March 2, 2014 in Bsous Silk Museum, Lebanon
The intention is to consolidate and establish a community of learning, innovation and practice amongst the group of individuals who began this journey at the end of last year. The aim is to support and encourage wholehearted engagement in HWH work and help the participants to integrate it in their personal and professional lives and in various fields of action. In addition to consolidating previous learning, new activities and resources will be introduced to give the HWH group the courage, strength and support to spread these healing ideas and exercises as widely as possible throughout Lebanon and the region. The belief that sustains this vision is, of course, that collectively as an HWH network, we are greater than the sum of our parts. We can catalyse a more passionate, empowered intelligence by working together than we can by struggling alone. The training was facilitated by Matthew Pruen and Alexandra.

HWH Training Workshop Module III – Integrating practices, building confidence and strengthening capacities on Nov 21-24, 2014 at the Silk Museum, Bsous, Lebanon
This last workshop of the series aimed at supporting the participants to develop further expertise in using HWH tools in their life and work. It was also intended to further nurture the community of change agents who are empowered to take and apply the approaches and the powerful content of HWH training into their respective practices within communities in Lebanon. The training was facilitated by Matthew Pruen and Alexandra.
