Beautiful picturial and other reflections, and great developments! Thank you all, so much!
I’m curious about some small or big examples how ideas you took home turned out to be useful in your everyday life/work. Some examples, please?

When I came home on Saturday I felt that sleeping outside under the starry sky would be a beautiful way to end a WONDER-ful week at Fontana Passugg.
It was a beautiful sky with thousands of stars above me, covering me like a blanket. I woke up several time during the night and felt deeply grateful for this "space in time" which the group of six made possible and everybody contributed in his/her way. In so many different ways. I really experienced what a treasure diversity is. Different talents, thoughts, emotions building upon each other with the help of "yes, and...".

Looking at the stars I revisited many moments of excellence of last week. And I will remember them when looking at the stars and reconnecting to Fontana Passugg (e.g. to the "Sitzplatz")
THANKS to you all and especially to the group of six for this wonderful idea which really made a difference.
Hugs, Julia

Here's one of my favourite songs of the moment which for me captures much of the essence of the summer retreat. You should be able to preview and buy it here and I've attached the lyrics too.

Wow, we tested some walking paths in the mountins next to the venue: Started with a rainbow, sunshine and finished in diligent rain. What a forest! what a nature! mmmmh!
Comment by Sussan Öster on August 15, 2010 at 10:01
thank you very much Manuela! We plan to bring maps from the internet and by more detailed ones when we get to Schweiz. It's a bit tricky to choose when we can't see them. Looking forward to seeing you and all other interesting people soon!

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
