Learn with us
Are you intrigued by what goes on in groups and wondering how to get the most out of being part of any group you're in?
Are you eager to actively develop your thinking around how humans interact and work with the diversity we each bring?
Are you curious about how to work with others with both intention and skill rather than leave it to chance?
Are you open to exploring what might emerge when you pay attention to yourself and others in groups?
Then you're in the right place. We're unabashed nerds of human and group dynamics!
Learning how to unleash the magic in groups can often start with some simple tools and techniques, although these alone have limited value. It's our mental models - starting with how we even conceive of a group - and how we then show up and lead or participate that really makes the difference.
We've spent a lifetime honing our practice (and are still learning every day) and we're keen to support anyone who is developing their own craft, just as we were the beneficiaries of generous support from the previous generation of practitioners who taught us. All we ask is an open mind and a willingness to come and play in a space of not-knowing and experimentation.
We provide a range of opportunities for learning together, to enable you to create your own curriculum, for wherever you are in your journey.
