Emerging Pathways Retreats

For facilitators and space-holders of transformation

Who is the retreat for?

We are targeting a curated group of maximum 15 senior “holders of transformation” (coaches, facilitators and trainers) per retreat. Our intention is to bring Gamechangers together who are working with others on the transition to create and strengthen regenerative systems, and together experiment with co-creating regenerative spaces for ourselves and others.

Through the retreat, we want to bundle our expertise and energy to enrich and support each other for the long haul of transforming society and the world through the BANI (brittle, anxious, non-linear, incomprehensible) times ahead of us.

As hosts, we will hold the space for co-creation to emerge as we move together with an open mind, open heart and open will.

What can I expect?

We invite you to the incredible location of Gut Stolzenhagen (around 1h away from Berlin, Germany). The Gut is embedded in the Unteres Odertal National Park with a community of 40 people, and is also home of the renowned Ponderosa international somatic research and festival space.

During this retreat, we as your hosts will create a loose framework based on the Open Space Technology, facilitating as little as possible and as much as needed, for the group to build trust, open up to share and experiment together, and dive deep individually and collectively.

All participants will be invited to offer, lead or co-create experiences, conversations and moments for all to dance, dialogue, move, meditate, reflect, and co-create different ways of being and relating. Everyone will be encouraged to “vote with their feet” by attending only the activities and conversations which are really energising and enriching them, and taking all the time and space to rest, regenerate and be with themselves. Healthy boundaries are key!

The intimate, deep and reflective nature of the retreat will be supported by the magical, natural environment that Gut Stolzenhagen offers, and the fact that all participants will be living, eating and relaxing in the beautiful house and environment co-created by Christa, her family and the Gut Stolzenhagen community over the last 25 years.
