Relationship to Self: Cultivating your inner life, developing and deepening the relationship to your thoughts, feelings and body, helps to be present, intentional and non-reactive when you face complexity.
Cognitive Skills: Developing your cognitive skills by taking different perspectives, evaluating information and making sense of the world as an interconnected whole is essential for wise decision-making.
Caring for Others and the World: Appreciating, caring for and feeling connected to others, such as neighbors, future generations or the biosphere, helps to create more
just and sustainable systems and societies for everyone.
Social Skills: To make progress on shared concerns, we need to develop our abilities to include, hold space and communicate with stakeholders with different values, skills and competencies.
Driving Change: Qualities such as courage and optimism help us acquire true agency, break old patterns, generate original ideas and act with persistence in uncertain times.

Heinz is studying Integral Theory and Practice since 2001 and has participated in several workshops and conferences around this topic in the US and Europe. He has been board member of the Swiss Integral Forum for 2 years, and has been involved in the Integral Politics political party in Switzerland.
Heinz has been leading Circling and Surrendered Leadership since 2013 in Switzerland, Germany and Austria and has been a teaching assistant at Circling Europe’s 6 month Circling training. Before he did a one-year training in The Art of Transparent Communication and has led groups in this We-Practice for 4 years. Both Circling and TC are based on the principles and understanding of the integral maps.
Heinz has done three levels of training with Don Beck in Spiral Dynamics Integral, which is a popular developmental model used in psychology and business. He also had a deeper insight in the Leadership Maturity Framework, a model for adult ego development, in workshops with Susanne Cook-Greuter.
Heinz is also the author of the recently published book “Vibrant Collaboration“, where he connects some of the Integral concepts with his experiences and deep research about relational dynamics at the workplace.
Brooks will join for some days and the retreat in May.
He considers himself a nerd at heart. Over the years, having originally been trained as a physicist, a soldier, and a zen monk, he now devotes his full nerdiness to the topic of human connection.
In 2010 he discovered authentic relating and was immediately hooked on the vast potential of it, and has since made it an integral part of his personal and professional practice. He is engaged in community leadership with the Borderland, travels around the EU teaching Authentic Relating, lives in Copenhagen, and dislikes talking about himself in third person.
There can be many reasons why one wants to join the intro weekend. For some it might be to finally get an introduction in this strange theory they have heard so many times. For others it is a deeper exploration to understand and navigate the ever growing inside and outside complexity, and discover new perspectives into life. Or you are not sure if you want to join the course and want to get to know the facilitators more.
