エンカウンターグループとは

 「エンカウンター・グループとは、「出会いのグループ」という意味です。人々が、お互いを尊重し、自分の可能性を安心して育てていけるような生き方や人間関係を探求していくための時間と場所を提供するものと言えます。

 このグループは、通常、数人から10人程度の参加者とファシリテーター(促進者)と呼ばれるスタッフで構成されます。期間中は、ゆったりとした時間の流れの中で、あらかじめ話題を決めない自由な話し合いを中心に過ごします。年齢や性別、職業や地位にとらわれない安全な雰囲気の中で、自分や他者の声に耳を傾けることができるでしょう。そして、さまざまな人との出会いや新たな自分の発見を通して、生き方の広がり・深まり・豊かさのためのヒントが得られるかも知れません。

 近年は、このようなエンカウンター・グループから発展した、多様なグループの実践がさまざまな分野で積み重ねられており、大きな成果が得られています。

 教育・医療・福祉・産業・家庭・地域社会・国際関係での、より真実で建設的な人間関係・組織づくりのために、多様なエンカウンター・グループが実施されています。」

What is an Encounter Group?

An Encounter Group is essentially a field where you can grow, experiment and practise being authentic. It is based on person-centred values and provides a space to meet one another in more profound and personal ways than is possible in most social relationships.

The shared intention of honesty invites a caring, genuine and intimate exchange. How you use the circle is up to you. You may find yourself for the first time standing up for yourself, speaking your truth – or expressing your vulnerability and owning some unfulfilled needs.

We invite you to pay attention to the things that are touched in you as you participate or witness others in their interaction. More than anything, Encounter Groups are a fertile ground for self-discovery. Even in your silence, you will learn much about who you are and where you wish to go in your life.

You don’t need to bring any specific issues along. The happenings in the group will naturally bring up anything you might not be quite at peace with and the invitation is always to be honest about what is going on for you. It is here where you can start meeting not just the others, but yourself!

The unfolding of the action is something that you can develop a deep relationship with and so everything that happens can become highly significant to your personal journey.

We as facilitators do not aim to engage you in talking therapy. Instead, we hold the space and support the group in finding its most real expression and connection.

What are the ‘rules’?

We agree on staying in the circle for the duration of the session.

Are Encounter Groups very confrontational?

There is no agenda of confrontation. You may witness more boldness among participants than you would in a conventional context and we invite you to stay in touch with whatever that brings up for you, e.g. shyness, anxiety or anger. You are always free to share when you experience something in the group as challenging. It can be very liberating to own how you feel and it may trigger an important process in the group and for yourself.

Is this therapy?

No. It is a self-exploration workshop.

Note: Neither the facilitators nor the group are there to sort out anybody’s specific life problems - after all, 'encounter group' does not equal 'therapy'. However, participants are always welcome to share with the group when they are struggling with something that is occurring for them in the present moment.

Do you have any helpful guidelines?

There is no agenda as to what is supposed to happen. In fact, the space may be used by people in any way they like. This freedom creates an ambience of permission and exploration. The focus is always on what is happening RIGHT NOW.

Rather than reflecting on and discussing the past, the invitation is to see what impulses and feelings are arising in this very moment.
