This manual has been developed to enable the wider distribution of the sha:re approach of dialogue facilitation within the Nepali society. It is designed for Nepali trainers who are supposed to train facilitators ans mediators using this approach. However, it is not restricted to the Nepali context. We hope that this manual can inspire dedicated people in different parts of the world who assist peaceful settlements of conflicts and support reconciliation within societies. We would be more than happy, if this contributes even in a small way to reducing resentment and mistrust, rooted in the past, in different ethnic, social and religious backgrounds or gender.
This is a practical manual for trainers. It is designed as a 10-day training workshop. Nevertheless, it is also possible to use the individual exercises separately. The aim of the 10-day training is twofold: First, the participants in this training shall be enabled to facilitate dialogue groups (according to the sha:re approach); second, they shall be enabled to conduct mediations in families, neighborhoods and communities.
