The AWA Initial Leadership Training is a five-day intensive course focused on instructing individuals in the AWA method.
It is not a writing retreat. The writing that occurs is targeted toward aspects of the method, and exercises are used to generate understanding and to experience the depths that each component of the method contains.
Although the practices are easily outlined, they are deceptively simple. Putting these practices into use during a workshop requires common sense, compassion, and skill.
In addition to the specific AWA practices, the following skills are taught:
AWA Leadership is learned by experiencing elements of the method in a simulated workshop environment, experimental writing sessions, talks by experienced leaders, group discussion, role playing, film, and guest speakers to give participants a full experience of the AWA method as it is actually used. Upon completion of the training, participants will have a thorough understanding of the AWA method, AWA practices and guidelines, and will be able to convey these effectively to their workshop members.
This training will be held at Cenacle Sisters Conference & Retreat Center in Chicago, IL. More information about the facilities is available here.
