In March two core trainings course have finished, one by Lillian and friends, and one by JP.
To support the newly trained people to settle into Co-Counselling we organise a CoCo Open Space for them and for other co-counsellors.
CoCo Open Space is a gentle inter-active process with as main focus to bring together co-counsellors with shared interests and common needs so that they can co-create a meaningful and relevant Co-Counselling cooperation that matters to them. This might be by having sessions with one another, setting up support group, getting workshops organised or the support might be more practical.
So CoCo Open Space is more than only an opportunity to find co-counselling partners, to meet co-counsellors who have been on recent Fundamentals, and folk who have been co-counselling for quite a wee while.
During the workshop we will offer a variety of small, one-hour-plus Taster workshops to demonstrate the rich variety of cooperation arrangements available in co-counselling. As there are so many possibilities, we will run only those tasters for which there is an interest from some of the people present at the Coco-Open Space.
If you cannot attend the workshop, and still want to be involved…
If so please email us your Topic of Interest or make a Topic poster and hand it in to Sheila. We will include it in the potential choices, offered as available for people to consider and group around. Your Topic Poster describes
- what topic or issue matters to you: title and description
- what you would like to offer and what support you need
- what type of cooperation arrangement you would like to have
If you can only attend part of the workshop…
You are welcome to attend this Open Space, even if you are not available for the whole weekend, though being there on Saturday morning will make it easier for you to negotiate time to share with others. You could then leave and return at an agreed time on Saturday or Sunday to work with those you identify as having a shared interest.
We recommend that if possible you pick the timeslots you will attend in the following order:
1. The Saturday morning, the start-up of CoCo Open Space
2. The Sunday afternoon from 1500, where we finalise the action planning after CoCo Open Space
3. The whole Sunday afternoon, as this is the lead-up to 2.
4. Saturday afternoon and/or the Sunday morning
Please inform Lilian or JanPieter of your intended arrival time so that they can take it into account.
It would be great if you could let the host or contact person
know in advance if you are intending to go.

Lunch from 1 to 2 p.m., Bring buffet items to share.
