Facilitating for Meaning M² Circles: The Design of Immersive Experiences. September 22-26, 2019

I feel like I have gained a much better ability to articulate a vision and design a program that meets it."

Facilitating for Meaning - the third of three independent seminars on the Design of Immersive Experiences - is a five-day intensive that will arm you with the clarity, precision and skill necessary for the successful creation and implementation of Jewish immersive experiences.


Organizations and educators invest deeply in creating powerful immersive experiences for their participants.

Yet often times, they get caught up in the stress of logistics, having little time to devote to educational design.

What approaches and skills can help educators ensure that the experiences they design are meaningful and lead to growth and change?

Challenge yourself to explore and adopt a set of brand-new approaches and techniques that add shape, color and purpose to educational immersive experiences.


Drawing from the disciplines of psychology, neurology, anthropology and art, this seminar provides participants with a broad range of strategies that can help their learners process educational experiences in meaningful and significant ways.



Processing techniques that enable capacities for change and growth

Tools to design educational environments that enable flow, aha-moments, and peak experiences.

Approaches to enhance your ability to shape the emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual arcs of your programs.

I loved having the chance to brainstorm with the thoughtful and creative cohort, both for my own programming and to have the chance to work on other programming. The different backgrounds of all the participants added to my thought process and it was a pleasure to get to work with such a diverse group of people.
