Where can I find organizing and group facilitation training?

I've recently assumed a role that calls on me to do some serious community-building and group facilitation and I'm feeling pretty unprepared. I'd love advice on possible trainings -- workshops, conferences, methods, even online resources. I'm open to anything really, from the micro of how groups form and interact, to more zoomed out training on the development of large communities and even social movements.

To give a few examples, I'm aware of the Art of Hosting
, which is in line with what I'm thinking. I'm also kicking myself for missing the deadline to the next eight-day strategic evaluation at the James Lawson Institute
. I also know a few labor organizers who talk highly of the work of Marshall Ganz
, and he seems fantastic, but I won't be in Boston anytime soon.
Beyond that, though, I'm a bit clueless. Any advice would be great!
