WisdomVerse – Facilitator Training
Facilitated by Magdalena Montagne
Three weeks: Tuesdays, May 17–31, 4:00-6:00 pm Pacific (adjust for your time zone)
Online via Zoom
WisdomVerse began with a simple idea: that everyone has a story to tell and deserves to feel acknowledged and heard, regardless of their age or physical capabilities. Participants will learn about the special population of elders who will be experiencing the WisdomVerse program, with a focus on an introduction to Alzheimer’s disease. Trainees will learn how to prepare for and facilitate a poetry writing circle, experience the process, and address the unknown factor of “thinking on one’s feet” while working with the elderly and writing a collaborative on-the-spot poem.
While this training is focused on working with elders and those with Alzheimer’s disease, the tips and techniques are applicable to poetry circles for any population—for all ages of poets, all levels.
