ALIA Europe Summer Gathering

A Community Driven Retreat

September 6 – 9, 2018

We welcome alumni and friends from the East, the West, the North and the South.

A place to meet again, to exchange ideas, support each other and to co-create the future of Alia Europe which future almost certainly includes a week long Intensive (flagship event) in 2019, and more.

Looking back into the complicated history of Europe and the complex times of nowadays, we can recognise that everything looks different depending on where one looks at it from. One could see that there are some people, institutions and countries that have more power than others, and this can bring us feelings of confusion, frustration or powerlessness. One feels compelled to act. Our choice of actions depends on what we see and how we make sense of it.

We will spend 3 days together in the ALIA Europe Summer Gathering exploring how the practices of authentic leadership can help us work with diversity and complexity more creatively and wisely.

Product Description

The Program

Part of the program is offered by faculty and part of it we invite you to co-create together. This gives us time and space to both dive deeper into: ‘Foundations of Authentic Leadership’ (Susan Skjei – [email protected] university) and Leadership embodiment through Aikido practices (Christian Vanhenten –Aiki.com), and at the same time we will have a decent amount of time for Open Space Methodology to explore and co-create what touches us deeply and supports us to keep bringing ourselves in the world.

We also invite you to experience a Lithuanian sauna tradition with lots of herbs, led by Giedrius Bučas, Sauna Master (To be confirmed) (do bring your swimming suits!) and we will offer story telling about the history of Lithuania accompanied with Lithuanian song and dance. (also to be confirmed)

The tricky thing in preparing for an event is that all the planning depends upon the number of people who come. As a result, we are trying to get the clearest possible sense of attendance in order to prepare ourselves and the venue without incurring high fees for cancellations.

If we have to cancel the event, our liability in the event of cancellation is limited to a full refund of the event fee only. We will not refund the following:

  • Any travel or hotel costs associated with the cancellation of an event,
  • Any fees relating to the event booking.
  • We accept no liability if the event is cancelled or postponed for reasons beyond our reasonable control resulting from Force Majeure Events.
  • The fee covers accommodation for the gathering period between September 6th, 2018 and September 9th, 2018 in shared rooms, three meals a day and refreshments (snacks, water, tea, coffee).
  • ​We reserve the right to change the venue at our discretion and in this event will send an email to participants giving at least 48 hours notice of such change. In the case of such change, we promise that the alternative venue will be of equal quality standards.
