This four-day experiential retreat and workshop is designed for leaders and teams at all levels. It introduces a collective leadership methodology for sensing and facilitating profound innovation and change both within organizations and across societal systems. The program is designed as a U-process and allows participants to experience the U-process in depth.  A large portion of the Presencing workshop is dedicated to case clinics, where participants will apply what they are learning to challenges and projects in their own work. Participants will benefit the most from this workshop by coming with a concrete project or challenge that they are working on and/or by attending with one or more colleagues/ stakeholders. If you work in a consultant or facilitator role, we encourage you to participate with a client.

Participant will connect deeply with each other across sectors, generations and continents and leave with a meaningful long lasting network.

This workshop will be of particular value to teams in the early stages of working on joint projects. While developing their individual and collective leadership capacities, participants will simultaneously create a shared vision for their projects, engage with internal and external stakeholders, and prototype new ideas.

In our experience a good spread of participation across the sectors - corporate, civil society, government, academia - is important for this program. Since we are trying to ensure a balanced mix, we might contact you prior to confirming your participation.

Testimonials from 2022

A real unique experience of awareness with open-minded/hearted/willed people of different nationalities that changes one's way of seeing the world & ecosystems in a place that leaves room for deep personal and professional changes.
Marie-Provence Hanneton, France

My experience of the theory U was transformational, the fact that life does not have to be so difficult if you have an open mind, will and heart. The ethos will live with me in this life I live, and I am dedicated to implementing it in as many areas as I can to help others simply because it is too good to keep to myself.
Gauri Taylor-Nayar, UK

I had a transformative experience at the PFP and it exceeded my expectations. It was so amazing to be in a global context with leaders from over a dozen countries representing many different sectors. The content, consciousness, and outstanding facilitation created the conditions for me to make a major breakthrough on a tough leadership challenge. And at the end of our time together, I felt refreshed and inspired, thanks to the daily mindfulness, embodiment practices, and attention to how we used our attention. Thank you!
Nicole Taylor, USA

This was a fantastic programme which gave me the space to go deep into current professional dilemmas and left me energised by new ideas and people, with clear actions and next steps to apply in my work.
Newman-Beckett, UK

The Presencing Foundation Program moved something deep inside of me. It reconnected me to my sources of motivation and creativity. I knew Theory U already from online courses and books but being guided through the process by the excellent facilitators brought my knowing to the next level. The team behind the program embodied compassion, presence and courage in an inspiring way. The participants from all over the world supported my personal transformation process as well as the project I brought in. I can highly recommend this experience to anybody that is open for new learning and experiencing Theory U, community and life. Thank you very, very much Presencing Institute.
