Social Presencing Theater (SPT) and meditation as sources of deeper Life Skills
Capacity building and deepening of the practice, through:
MEDITATION • SPT • NATURE • THEORY U
• Deepen and develop individual practice
• Explore the relationship between meditation and SPT
• Connecting inner nature with outer nature
• Provide theoretical background to explore the effectiveness of SPT
• Deepen the relationship between meditation and SPT
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 reconnect with our most natural (re)sources by turning our attention towards ourselves.
We will explore the relationship between meditation and SPT and dive into the inner capacities and life skills that you can acquire from practicing embodiment and presence. We refine our capacities of getting and staying in touch with ourselves, others and nature. The connection to nature will be an important part of the SPT Summer Retreat and we will involve both the garden and the wild nature in the area throughout the program.
SPT was developed as a mindfulness and awareness of body method within the framework of the social technology of presencing, Theory U. We will introduce the main aspects of Theory U and explore them more deeply with our practice. This allows us to generate ideas and prototypes how to utilize SPT for our personal development and as a means of transformation in our professional roles. The emphasis of the program is the practice and the shared experiences, but we also work with the relevant theoretical background that can help us navigate and deepen the exploration of the SPT practice.
The SPT Summer Retreat will count as a basic SPT course and qualify participants to join advanced SPT Programs. The program will also deepen and develop individual skills independent of previous experience with SPT and meditation. To deepen the process and the learning, three follow up calls on Zoom will be offered, to help participants further ground the practice in their everyday context.
