☸ Special Edition Practice Group with Irini Rockwell ☸ @ Fregelaan
May 16 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

~ Put new insights in your Five Wisdom Energy make-up to work during Irini’s guest apperance in our Practice Group~

Gain more insight, compassion and forward movement in challenging situations with the help of a world-class teacher during this Special Edition Practice Group for members of the (Experience) Integral community and people from their networks.

Irini Rockwell will facilitate experiential learning to help us gain new insight into our personality through the lens of The Five Wisdoms. Understanding these energies informs us about the nature of our constriction as well as our ability to be released from it: how we manifest our sanity and shine and how we can get confused or stuck. Knowing more about our style helps us with personal authenticity, skillful communication, enlivened environments, and effective action. This is the main focus of this Practice Group, besides (re)connecting with the Experience Integral community. 

Irini is a long time Buddhist teacher who embodies the power of compassion. Her main interest is in personalities and how they influence our (professional) relationships. She has written Natural Brilliance: A Buddhist System for Uncovering Your Strengths and Letting Them Shine and The Five Wisdom Energies, a Buddhist Way of Understanding Personalities, Emotions and Relationships (in 10 languages), and her third book will come out later this year. Some of you will remember her as a teacher during one of out first summer retreats in Venwoude.

Integral Power: 7th Experience Integral Mini Summer Retreat @ Tussen Hemel en Aarde
Jul 1 @ 10:00 am – Jul 2 @ 5:00 pm

🌀 Integral Power: Reclaiming your Strength to Better the World while You Thrive 🌀

✳ Join us for a weekend retreat of replenishment, community, inspiration and learning ✳

So many of us cope with e.g. working very hard as a social entrereneur and not getting paid enough for it, or burning/boring ourselves out in unfulfilling jobs.

For the seventh time we gather in summer to be together as a tribe, to brush up on our understanding of ourselves and the world, to take a load off, to laugh and practice. The world needs us in our full power, so how can we claim that without letting old beliefs about what being effective looks like get in the way?

As you are used to from us, the program will include all the building blocks of Integral Life Practice (I, We, It; Head, Heart, Hara and Spirit). We will learn about and share our understanding of the state of the world with Patrick van der Hofstad. We will engage in the Teal+ practice of We-Dreaming with Andrew Venezia, an exciting new Integral spiritual methodology. We will play together. We will explore masculine and feminine power and their contractions with Hanneke Nijland and Ariëlle Brouwer. We will do morning practices of dance, meditation, and of course Leadership Embodiment with Anouk Brack. We will eat together and clean up and rest.

And all of this could be changed based on input from the group, as we are firm believers in co-creation and acting from the juice of the moment.

✔ The backdrop for this gatherting will again be that beautiful place ‘Between Heaven and Earth’ in nature near Utrecht. You can pitch a tent or sleep in one of the cabins/tree houses around the site.
✔ Price will be between €110-140 for the whole weekend. Additional donations welcome, these will go towards discounts for the organisers and workshop leaders.
✔ Arrival from 9am on Saturday. We start the retreat at 10am. Possibility to arrive Friday night for a small additional fee.
✔ Let us know if you’ll be coming by car, as parking space is limited and needs to be reserved. We can coordinate pick-ups from the bus stop or Overvecht train station nearby.
✔ End of retreat 5pm on Sunday. Again it will be possible to stay longer if you want to. Let us know and we can get you in touch with the owners of the venue.
✔ You are free to participate or rest or offer input at any time.
✔ Chores (i.e. “Love in Action”) will be done together organically.

PS: If you or someone you’d like to invite is not ‘into’ Integral Theory and Spiral Dynamcis, that is not a problem. Just reach out and we can make sure no-one feels left out. A desire for exploration and connection is more than enough qualification.
