7th – 9th February 2020

What is Space for Connection?

A 2-day retreat where we create the space for connection, wisdom, friendship, curiosity, creativity, potential, freedom and a whole lot of fun!

Have you ever been to a course where you have benefited as much in the break times as you have in the training room through conversations and connections with peers?  We have too and that is where Space for Connection comes into its own.  

It is the perfect space to “stay in the 3P conversation” (without the presence of formal teaching) which means everything and anything is on offer! 

Each weekend has its own theme as a focal point lending itself to exploration by the group, gently facilitated by the team. 

Plus the whole weekend will be tailor made to the group.

What’s on Offer in the UK?

A space for bringing to mind the essential freedom that exists prior to the creation and maintenance of our ideas, opinions, beliefs, convictions – in other words the stories that we forget we created.

For an evening and two days we can relax into a feeling of newness, of life unfolding in the moment; noticing how innocently our stories appear to write themselves as truths about us and the world. 

When we turn our attention to what isn’t already existent, we may see the unlimited potential of what might be. We may revel in the possibility of freedom from the known.

Whilst there is no particular teaching curriculum for this weekend theme there will be facilitation from Sue, Sheela and Katja as we gently guide the group through this weekend.

Join us?

Places are limited to a maximum of 18 to allow time for everyone to meet each other in a relaxed and unhurried way.

Who is it for?

  • You may be in the business of sharing your understanding of the Principles in order to effect the transformations in individuals, communities, society, families, education … that you know is possible.
  • You may not be looking for formal certification or accreditation, but you are looking for greater depth and deeper grounding.
  • You welcome a unique opportunity to deepen the innate feeling of being comfortable in your own skin

What the weekend looks like…

Here is a loose description of when we will be together ‘in the room’ for conversations as well as ‘options time’ for you to choose what is most appealing to you in the moment.

This is the true essence of Space for Connection – unhurried, untaught, unpressured – full of a loving sense of our shared humanity.
