Building on the Basics
What is a BoB?
A BoB is a series of follow-on study sessions that has been designed to commence shortly after a 16G Level 1 workshop, providing participants with an opportunity to integrate their experience and understanding of the 16G into everyday life. Experience has shown that this is also a very helpful way to enjoy ongoing support and a sense of the 16G community.
Completing a BoB is a necessary intermediate step to attending a 16G Level 2 workshop. You will need to attend a minimum of 8 out of the 10 BoB sessions.
What does a BoB provide?
Led by a 16G facilitator, a BoB will provide:
Weekly home-study work sheets [a commitment of ten minutes each day]
Support and weekly set-aside time to design and implement a joint community project inspired by the 16G
Encouragement and a framework to continue practicing the skill of mindfulness
Additional deepening practice using the reflections, experiential tools and creative activities that provide the foundation for personal exploration and understanding of the 16 Guidelines and the Four Wisdom Themes
Small group and full group discussions to share ideas and understanding
When do BoB take place, and how do I register?
A BoB usually begins shortly after the end of a Level 1 workshop.
If a BoB is already in place, your Level 1 facilitator will provide more information, give you the opportunity to register, and ensure that all the practical arrangements are in place.
If no BoB is yet in place, your Level 1 facilitator will be able to discuss alternative options with you.
