Art of Hosting Master Class 2024

Cascading Transformations: Nurturing our Depth Learning 7-9 June 2024, Berlin Brandenburg

How do we LEARN faster and more profoundly in and through our diversities in these times of cascading systems breakages?

How do we HOST… if we do not bring our different identities, positionalities, world views, lived experience and dreaming natures together?

We, the CitizensLab and the Living Wholeness Institute are thrilled to extend an invitation to you for a transformative 3-day gathering. A time of deep listening, inquiry, and the exploration of various pathways to profound personal and collective transformation in service to these times.

This is an Art of Hosting Master Class. We are calling this space to inquire into the hosting capacities and competencies for accelerating depth learning to navigate the cascading systems breakages and potential of these times.

We wish to create a rich learning container to collectively harvest what emerges between us: What qualities and capacities enable places, fields of people, organisations, extreme contexts to transform to higher orders of potential?
We will focus on the dance between the inner practices and the collective practices of hosting in complexity.

Community of Practice in Berlin

Facilitating regenerative cultures for social transformation

Collaboration between the Ulex Learning center and CitizensLab
"Everything is worth it if the soul is not too small"
"Everything is worth it if the soul is not too small"

The CitizensLab has initiated in 2023 a Berlin base “Regenerative Cultures Community of Practice (CoP)” that is aiming at creating peer-learning exchange among people (facilitators, activists, artists, change-makers, social innovators, ..) dedicated to bringing regenerative approaches in social transformation processes.

We meet monthly in Berlin to peer-learn and share practices, we host workshops for the wider Berlin based ecosystem and we also offer the possibility to join the Ulex Project trainings in Spain with all costs covered.

If you wish to become part of this community, read about our work and apply via the form!

ECEM - Eramsus+ Project 2023-2025

The Enriching Communities through Engaged Mobilities (ECEM) project wants to further develop the connections between civic engagement, internationalization, and inclusion. Ensuring active citizenship and participation in society is understood as a key element in the process of making mobilities more inclusive and societies more integrated. Ensuring a sense of belonging through actively participating in society, enforces inclusive and integrated societies at the European level.

CitizensLab has organised a 3 days „Learning through engagement lab“ in Berlin in October 2023 where we used Art of Hosting approaches to create an environment of deep listening, sharing, and reflection, enabling participants to explore the complexity of the challenges they face implementing problem-based learning formats such as Service Learning while harnessing the collective intelligence and expertise of the group.

The Lab supported in increasing the level of participation and engagement of the different stakeholders involved in the project: students, teaching and administration staff, and NGO representatives.

Art of Hosting Training in Berlin 2023

AoH Training March 31st - April 1st - April 2nd 2023 at BUM Berlin

Through the Art of Hosting and Harvesting Meaningful Conversations, we wish to invite a deep learning and reflective space where together we can explore a world view of connectivity as living systems, mental models that enable us to create through complexity and designing processes that invite full participation that lead to harvesting new collective intelligence and wise action.

CROSS - Erasmus+ Project 2022-2024

CROSS- Citizenship and Recovery of Opportunities for Suburban Space
The aim of the project is to empower young people through processes of regeneration of urban spaces. It´s core scope is to bring a change of perspective on the topic of citizens participation and decision-making, both as regards to the activities that will involve the young people and in the reinterpretation of neighborhoods as living spaces where to rebuild the collective bonds and the skills to take care of the community.
In the project, 5 partners from 5 member states of the European Union will work together for 2 years. They come from Spain, Italy, Romania, Portugal and Germany and they are vocational training non-governmental organisations, associations and social enterprises.
The project will run from February 2022 to February 2024.

We hosted a seasonal online epxeriential learning space where we firstly cultivated ourselves and our own personal transformations so that we can enter into a collective inquiry about co-creating the commons of democracy that lead to the radical changes of governance we wish to see.
