Aspiring facilitators - Exploring Human Processes and Facilitation – The Internship – Phase 1, 2 & 3

For :

  • Professionals in HR function, Training and Education.
  • Those interested in becoming Facilitators in human processes and in developmental work for building organisational culture.


Working with human processes at the individual, group or organisational level requires much more than theoretical understanding. The internship programme offers a multifaceted and prescriptive exploration of:

  • Individual perspectives in development orientation.
  • Nature of membership required for influencing systems.
  • Interpersonal relationship.
  • Perspectives carried from one's familial and cultural context.

The Internship is essentially an experiential programme which would enable you to:

  • Build understanding about deeper processes of learning and growth and
  • Design programmes / workshops relevant to needs of the client group.

The Internship Structure:

This is a 3 year programme which will include:

  • 11 days of intensive learning laboratories each for 3 years.
  • Inter-phase work (between programmes) where participants apply learnings in their lives / work, read relevant material and participate in centre meetings in places where Aastha Centres exist.
  • Meta-Labs and co-training between phases.

Focus areas in the 3 phases of the Internship:

While Phase 1 can be considered an independent module, entry into Phase 2 and Phase 3 is by invitation from the Internship Review Committee.

Phase 1:

  • Exploration of self and roles.
  • Developing perspectives on personal growth & human processes.

Phase 2:

  • Exploration in role-talking processes, systems interface issues in being an anchor person / facilitator / leader.
  • Creating Learning Environments.

Phase 3:

  • Exploration in self, membership and institutional processes for community building.
  • Explorations in inner and outer ecology.
  • Designing appropriate interventions to foster communities.
