Please also feel free to share the news with anyone from your circles that you think might like to know about any of the initiatives listed below.
The PI Team
Presencing Foundation Programs
This four-day experiential workshop is designed for leaders and teams at all levels. It introduces a collective leadership methodology for sensing and facilitating profound innovation and change both within organizations and across societal systems.
The Foundation courses engage participants in the principles and practices of presencing.
Through interactive presentations, reflective exercises, case clinics, and embodiment practices, participants will learn and apply the seven capacities of the deep leadership cycle that help change-makers to transcend old behavior patterns, realize new possibilities, and enable transformation and innovation.
Participants will explore their own blind spots as leaders and expand their awareness of what they do and how they do it, by learning to apply practices of the U-Process.
Visual Practice Programs
This course is for scribes who want to bring presencing and systems thinking into their practice and visual thinkers seeking to expand their capacity. The „art of scribing“ is used to bridge the ecological, social, and spiritual divides we experience in our world today. Scribing – a process of drawing while people talk – provides a mirror that can help a system see itself in new light.
Social Presencing Theater
This basic course is an introduction into the basic practices of Social Presencing Theater. Drawing on the arts and contemplative traditions, Social Presencing Theater brings to the surface a clearer sense of the relationships, hidden dynamics, and emerging possibilities inherent in a team, organization or larger system. It allows co-creators in a given system to gain insight into the current situation, seeing potential opportunities for change. It sets the ground for creative collective action.
The advanced program is designed for leaders, facilitators, consultants, coaches, activists, artists, and others interested in bringing more embodied awareness into their personal and work life.
