Workshop on facilitating multicultural groups with an embodied approach Sun 5 May

We are happy to invite Maaimanvaihto’s camp instructors & couches and other people who facilitate Maailmanvaihto’s group activities to a workshop on facilitating multicultural groups with an embodied approach.

  • Sunday 5.5.2024 from 15–19
  • at the Maailmanvaihto’s office, Oikokatu 3, Helsinki, Finland

Welcome to our immersive workshop on facilitating multicultural groups with an embodied approach. In this dynamic workshop, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery, exploring the intricacies of privilege and how it manifests within our own beings. Through a blend of experiential learning and practical exercises, participants will develop a toolkit of embodied facilitation techniques. These tools will enable them to seamlessly integrate existing facilitation methods with embodied practices, fostering deeper connections and understanding within multicultural groups.

The creator and trainer of the workshop Sauli Kahkonen is a dedicated practitioner of yoga and meditation with over 15 years of experience in the field. Sauli holds an MSc in International Studies and is a certified Somatic yoga instructor with 200 hours of training. He has also volunteered extensively in Lebanon, Bolivia, and Iceland, gaining valuable cross-cultural experience and contributing to various causes. Currently, he is pursuing his studies to become a psychotherapist with a focus on somatic movement and community engagement. Through his passion for somatic movement, Sauli hopes to effect positive change in society by promoting holistic well-being and empowering individuals to take control of their bodies and minds.

The training will be held in English. Participation is free of charge.
