This 10-day intensive training in emergent dialogue focuses on how to catalyze emergence in groups. Developed both for those familiar with emergent dialogue and for experienced facilitators, the training gives you the in-depth practice, feedback, and understanding to be able to work with the mystery of emergence in groups.
As a Catalyst of emergent dialogue, you can open a subtle field of coherence between group participants and work with the intelligence of the field to catalyze emergence. You intuit the synergistic potentials of the field, which enables co-conscious creativity, collective learning, and shared sense-making to arise in a group. You work with these capacities to create spaces for transformation that are psycho-active. This means that there is an X-factor involved, a mystery living within and between us, that opens up new potentials for transformation and emergence. As a Catalyst, you are an instrument of this inexpressible mystery. Aligning with the depth and flow that comes alive in the group, you help the richness and diversity within the group become powerfully synergistic.
The ten days of this Training Intensive will focus most on the development of the trust, sensitivity, and freedom that are foundational for a Catalyst. To have the capacity tap into the intelligence of the field takes a deep knowing—at a cellular, embodied level—that the living field is truly a dimension of perceptible reality. That it is not an idea or an experience that you have now and again. It is real.
During these ten days, we will focus on deepening our capacity to sense the collective presence of the field and the creative impulse arising from it—as Catalysts. When does the field come alive? What causes it to flatten and lose its magic? How do we care for the living space between us? What does that mean?
We will also explore the creative impulse and synergy. How do we distinguish between our own impulses and the impulse coming from the field intelligence? Can we experiment with responding before thought, to catch the wind of emergence?
The content and process of the Intensive will depend on the experience of the participants. The deeper intelligence of our interbeing will guide us.
This summer is the first time we are offering this program. We consider it a prototype, and look forward to receiving feedback from participants so that it can be even stronger in two years, when we next offer it. Given this, we are offering the Summer Intensive at a reduced fee.

The Life Itself Bergerac Hub is nestled near the River Dordogne and just a few minutes walk from Bergerac's beautiful town center. A perfect location from which to enjoy both the glorious French countryside and the vibrant medieval town.
The house is finely decorated with antique furniture and a rare view onto the Dordogne. It is situated just a few steps from the river itself, and a beautiful park in a quiet area. The space is one of a kind, and its atmospheric surroundings are the perfect setting for deep exploration.
This 10-day live, face-to-face, shoulder-to-shoulder event will be a part of our Catalyst certification process. Offered every other year, it will be the one mandatory on-location event required for certification; the remaining training can be done online. To find out more about certification, click here.
