Event Description

"You can never step into the same river twice."  Heraclitus


Thanks to the fantastic work of the "Group of 6", last year's Summer Retreat was truly outstanding! If something is working, do more of it... and so we are delighted to be returning to this wonderful location to co-create a brand new week of experiences.


A group of around 30 SF colleagues will gather in the Swiss mountains for a professional retreat, to connect, share, learn, teach, explore, enjoy, relax, be curious, play, stretch, reflect, uplift, inspire, amaze....... the programme will emerge through 'open space' as we gather ideas and design each day together.


Once again, we will emphasise 'being here and now', enjoying the time and space to create what inspires us to stimulate our minds, refresh our bodies, warm our hearts and feed our souls.

Practical details

Maximum 32 participants, in shared rooms.

Gathering on Monday evening 5.00pm, 4 full days practical SF work, leaving at 10.00am on Saturday.

Fee: CHF 750 (includes five nights' accommodation, all meals and breaks, transfer from Chur to Fontana Passugg, programme costs, local taxes).

Fly to Zurich airport and/or take the train to Chur.

Pick up service at Chur railway station.


Because last year was just so good and news has spread, we expect this event to fill up quickly... so if you know you want to come, please secure your place early. Bookings will be taken on a 'first come, first served' basis.


Want to join us? Go ahead and register  here.


We look forward to seeing you in the mountains!


Sue, Petra, Julia, Manuela

Hi Everyone

There are now just 15 places left on the Summer Retreat, and the few single rooms have all been requested. So, you still can book to share an en-suite room, and sharing is a great way to develop friendships. Rooms will be allocated with care and sensitivity.

Kati and I will hopefully have our hands full but we very much hope at least to pass by and get a glimpse of the wonderful atmosphere that we are sure there will be filled with beautiful insights.

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…
