On this three-day, non-residential Group Relations Conference (GRC), we will challenge ourselves to explore together feelings and ideas that ordinarily we might prefer not to confront. At times, these may feel like they are beyond words, but by establishing a place of rapprochement we hope to speak to each other openly, aided by using creative ways of expression such as dreams, sculpting and group exercises to (re)examine our words and deeds.

Let us explore together our inner and outer worlds, which may currently feel divisive, focusing on collaboration and co-creation alongside authority and leadership. You are invited to experiment with the roles you take up in groups using an experiential way of learning. This is not based on lectures or didactic teaching, but through emotional learning (the examination of one’s immediate experience).

This Group Relations Conference is for anyone who is interested in the current state of groups, organisations and society. The primary task is to explore unconscious and conscious processes, group dynamics and our individual and collective contributions to them, as they occur in the here and now of the temporary Conference organisation.

Co-directors: Maxine Dennis and Sarah Wynick
