SPT Deep Dive – Summer Retreat in Sweden

We are open for late applications.

The SPT Deep Dive Retreat will focus on deepening previous training. With emphasis on getting more clarity, inspiration and connection between meditation practice and SPT / embodiment practice. Explore how the two kinds of practices can enrich each other and your daily life and work. The focus will be less on how you can apply the tools in your context, and more about how you can develop, apply and polish the inner capacities and life skills that you can acquire through the practice itself. We refine our capacities of getting and staying in touch with ourselves, others and nature.

On the SPT Deep Dive Retreat we explore Social Presencing Theater (SPT) and meditation as sources of deeper Life Skills

Capacity building and deepening of the practice, through:


The intention:

  • Deepen the relationship between meditation and SPT.
  • Develop previous individual practice.
  • Explore deeper landscapes of social fields.
  • Get time and space to invite and stay with the not knowing.

The basic frames will be like a meditation retreat

– we limit our contacts with the outside world in order to deepen our individual and collective journey. We reconnect with our most natural
(re)sources by turning our attention towards ourselves. The connection to nature will be an
important part of the retreat and we will involve both the garden and the wild nature in the area throughout the program. We work in a balance between teaching and exercises, dialog and silence, movement and stillness. Two follow up calls on Zoom will be offered, to help participants further ground the practice in their everyday context.

Your hosts at the SPT Deep Dive retreat will be Anders Fabricius, Vivian Fabricius and Liv Fabricius.

Covid-19 update

How to apply Social Presencing Theater (SPT) in your context


You believe that the SPT method could benefit your team, hub, organization, network, project or something else. The problem is just that you don’t feel comfortable facilitating it yet or find it difficult to bring it out into your context in a good way. Then this course is for you, as it will help you to take the next steps!

The course

There are some specific challenges to facilitate an embodied awareness-based practice such as SPT. It is not enough to know the method and give the instructions step by step. You need to be able to embody the practice and to create a safe space, so that people will be wiling to follow you into unknown territory. You need to know what practice to use to achieve different things and how to frame it so that it fits within your specific context.

Every time you facilitate SPT it will be unique, but there is some general consideration that can help you on the way—that is what we want to explore during this course. The course will focus on:

  • SPT practice, to improve your skills and knowledge about SPT.
  • Exploring the inner capacities of a SPT facilitator, some things you can develop during the course other capacities might need more practice.
  • How you can integrate your knowledge and skills from other areas.
  • The use of different SPT methods and when to use which method.
  • The framing of the practices. Important points of framing and what to consider when introducing the SPT practice to beginners.
  • How to go from SPT insights to action that makes a positive impact.
  • How to take the next steps with your case or key challenges.

We will adjust the course to the needs and challenges of the participants.

Application for the course

The course is for people with prior exposure to SPT, if you didn’t try it yet—consider joining our “Embodied leadership” program in November 2019 in Malmö, Sweden. That will give you the basic understanding of SPT.

If you want to join the course, please write us a short email, stating your previous experience with SPT, your aspirations or what motivates you to join the program and finally a bit about your context and your SPT challenges. Send your application to:

Meditationens nästa steg

En kurs för dig som mediterar regelbundet

Sittande meditation är attraktivt eftersom det kan skapa en djupare kontakt med oss själva, en ro och en frihet. Många önskar att få med dessa kvaliteter ännu mer ut i det vanliga livet – i mötet med andra människor och i vardagens göromål. På kursen arbetar vi med en metod som kan underlätta detta, men som också kan berika den sittande meditationen med nya kapaciteter och perspektiv.


Kursens två huvudspår

Vi introducerar en modern Nordisk meditationsväg med rötter i bland annat djuppsykologi, tibetansk buddhism och grundvärderingar som demokrati, jämställdhet och hållbarhet. Det är en inkluderande, djup, avskalad och komplex metod som bygger på den danska meditationsläraren Jes Bertelsens arbete. Det är en sittande meditation som kan kombineras med den praktik du redan har.

För att ta med de meditativa kvaliteterna ut i nya sammanhang använder vi metoden Social Presencing Theater (SPT). Metodens kärna är kroppsbaserad närvaroträning och SPT kan beskrivas som en form för mindfulness i rörelse, ett kroppsligt utforskande av medvetandets möjligheter och begränsningar, både själv och i interaktion.


Kombinationen skapar nya synergier

De två metoderna var för sig är kraftfulla, men genom att kombinera dem skapas nya synergier och möjligheter.

Kvaliteterna från din tidigare träning och den gemensamma sittande meditationen tar vi med oss in i SPT träningen, det hjälper oss att ”ladda rummet” med vår närvaro. I det rummet kan vi sedan upptäcka och utforska impulser till rörelse och till stillhet i kroppen, i rummet eller i de större sammanhangen som vi ingår i.

Fokus för SPT träningen blir att få med kvaliteterna ut i rörelse och interaktion. Insikterna och kapaciteterna som vi bygger upp tar vi sedan med tillbaka till den sittande meditationen för att ytterligare öppna upp den, vidga den och göra den mer levande och inkluderande. Genom att växla mellan metoderna skapas en spännande spiral av fördjupning och kontakt.

Embodied Leadership


When we feel more connected to ourselves and to others it is easier to make the right choices and to navigate in life. Getting more embodied helps us discover new things about ourselves, our relationships and the systems that we are part of (family, organizations, society etc). On this course our focus will be to build inner capacities for leadership and change.


The course

Focusing on the body helps us to be present, the body is here and now. We will explore the capacity to really be present in the situation and lean into the needs and the potential that is always present in every situation.

We listen to the body, get in dialogue with it and move the awareness down in the body—a journey from head to body, from delimitation to openness and wholeness. We also listen to the “social body” that we as a group form—what does it want? How does it feel? How can we contribute? Together we explore what it means to be human—our patterns, our habits, and the possibilities that we have to influence our lives and systems.


“SPT is a unique way to explore the intelligence of the body. To practice my responsiveness to what arises between me and my fellow human beings and become aware of how I affect others just by my presence.”

– course participant


The practices

We will introduce you to a modern Nordic meditation path, with roots in depth psychology, Tibetan Buddhism and values such as democracy, gender equality and sustainability. It is an inclusive, stripped-down, deep and complex method based on the Danish meditation teacher Jes Bertelsen’s work.

The other method we will use is Social Presencing Theater (SPT). SPT is a form of mindfulness in motion, that helps to make visible and explore social systems and change processes. It is also a method for personal and group development, as it helps practitioners to see their own role and contribution in the system. The method cultivates important capacities for better relationships, self-leadership, change and understanding of social systems.

Social Presencing Theater Summer Retreat

Explore the hidden fruits of Social Presencing Theater.

Focusing on: Capacity building and deepening the practice.



The intention

The basic frames will be similar to a meditation retreat – we limit our contacts with the outside world in order to deepen our individual and collective journey. We will explore the relationship between meditation and SPT and dive into the “hidden fruits” of SPT, that is the capacities and life skills that you can acquire from practicing SPT. Nature will also be an important part of our SPT Summer Retreat, we will use the wonderful garden at our retreat place as well as the wild nature in the area with forest, lakes and mountains.

The SPT Summer Retreat should give the basic components of SPT, Theory U and meditation but also deepen and develop individual skills independent of previous experiences and skills. The retreat will include all elements of a basic SPT course and it will qualify to join advanced SPT programs. The program will be based on the participants’ needs and skills, there will be time for co-creation and both individual and group journeys.


About us

Your hosts at the SPT Summer Retreat will be Anders, Liv and Vivian Fabricius. All three have long experience of SPT, advanced meditation training, embodied awareness training and Theory U. Anders and Liv are both SPT teachers.
