Deep immersion, provocative actionable impact

Participate in world class training


training intentions

Our certification track offers deep, immersive training in emerging themes in organizational life based on principles, practices and processes of open participation. 

Our courses are academically robust while their retreat settings stimulate dynamic engagement in deeply affective, meaningful and imaginal explorations into individual experience and collective aspirations. 

Our explorations are lively and diverse action-oriented inquiries. We cultivate intellectual curiosity, critical reflection and evaluative discourse.

We are committed to a realist position about what is actually happening in organizational life, what we actually feel, sense, and perceive in our lived experience, what values we hold, what actually can be known about the world.
— Bonnitta Roy, Founding Associate
