Dynamic Facilitation Dynamic Facilitation is an energy-based form of facilitating where people address difficult issues creatively and collaboratively, and achieve breakthrough results. It establishes a process of talking and thinking, known as Choice-Creating, that builds mutual respect, trust and the sense of community. The dynamic facilitator plays an active role, helping people follow their heart more than a preexisting agenda. He or she helps them to determine an issue they really care about, whether it seems solvable or not. Then she helps them to say what is on their minds in a way that all can hear and respect. The dynamic facilitator helps foster shifts of heart and mind by following the natural flow of conversation and supporting group spontaneity. Sometimes these shifts take the form of new ideas; other times they bring a new sense of what the ?real problem? is; and other times there is a change of heart.
