Do we become more free and easeful in the face of the unexpected and the difficult?
Can our way of being adapt to circumstances and change with a ready mix of both structure and spontaneity?
Are we able to make room for not only appealing differences, but differences that challenge the heart of how we make sense of things?
The commitment to developing ourselves is an endeavor that is measured, ultimately, in the manner we engage with others and the world around us.
Our work at Ten Directions is born from the recognition that the most powerful technology that can and will shape our collective future is our way of being.
Our way of being is expressed through our skills, our tools, the methods and models we employ, but it is not merely made of these. Developing and refining our way of being includes gaining skills, knowledge, awareness and behaviors, and it is not merely a process of doing these things.
At the juncture of inner practice, interpersonal skill development, leadership and confrontation with the unknown, sits our immersive and enlivening approach to training and developing leaders.
Our pioneering Certified Integral Facilitator® program began five years ago, and now counts 75 graduates across 5 continents who hold this professional designation. With the launch of two parallel cohorts in the US and Europe this year, our community of practice will nearly double in 2018. Our graduates are making significant contributions as leaders, conveners, coaches, designers, facilitators and culture-change curators working across many sectors and scales of enterprise and civic life.
Our track at the Integral European Conference is a unique opportunity for our Ten Directions team and community to offer our work at “home” to the integral network. Designed to address your engagement with yourself and the people, systems and world around you, our pathway is a wild ride, a steep climb, and a joyful celebration. You will be learning alongside leading facilitators, coaches, consultants, and artists who are giving themselves fully to the work of co-creating our shared humanity and our shared future. We look forward to meeting you in Siofok!

Integral Facilitator®: Presence, Energy, and Perspective
with the Integral Facilitator Certificate Program Faculty members, Dr. Cindy Lou Golin, Rebecca Ejo Colwell, and Rob McNamara
This facilitation workshop practically applies integral principles to the art of presenting and facilitating. Ideal for conference presenters, trainers, and group facilitators, this workshop focuses on the facilitator (rather than the skill) and explores new approaches to enhancing your experience at the front of the room.
As an Integral Facilitator, work with the here and now, take more perspectives, and embrace more of your experience, including dissonance, challenge, and shadow. Access more choices in the moment and more capacity to address the full complexity of what is happening — in the energetics of the room, in the emotional domains of the interpersonal, in the realms of power and influence, in decision-making and conflict.
WEDNESDAY 23rd 09:00 – 10:30

The Third Thing – An Integral Approach to Creative Collaboration
with Lauren Beale and Brooke McNamara.
The 3rd Thing: An Integral Approach to Creative Collaboration is an experiential workshop that seeks to explore and harness the emergent capacity of separate, distinct voices catalyzing together. Through a rigorously practiced collaborative process of movement, writing, conversation and meditation, participants will be guided into an embodied conversation toward the heart of innovation and creativity. More than a formula or method, Lauren and Brooke offer skills for partners or small groups to hone individual intentions, align with intuition, unleash uninhibited imagination, and together move from the known to the unknown to discover a third thing not possible without the collaboration. Engaging 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person perspectives to craft a novel idea, project, or performance, participants will gain a direct, multidimensional experience of how to catalyze new potential and possibilities through creative process.
THURSDAY 24th 15:30 – 16:45
Making to Unknow – Art, Growth & Leadership
with Pete Strom, Certified Integral Facilitator, and Aithan Shapira, Certified Integral Facilitator
Roll up your sleeves and immerse in a facilitated sequence of drawing and collage instruction designed to reveal and challenge perceptions and conventional thinking. The experience is shaped to develop openness and tolerance for ambiguity, disruption and iteration, and to experience new capacities and greater opportunity through adaptation and new sense-making.
As facilitative leaders, we can both expand and sharpen what we see, hear, notice, and absorb from environments. Expanding perceptions and holding multiple perspectives can grow the self-as-instrument, revealing more information and possibility, such that we can react differently under pressure, change faster, offer new way perspectives to others, and lean into uncertainty.
THURSDAY 24th 16:45 – 18:00
with Dr. Cindy Lou Golin.
Shadow practice is often called shadow work, but what if it was play?
Learn to enjoy and delight in what you’ve kept in the dark. We’ll engage in a playful, relaxing, and meaningful shadow play experience. We’ll take a creative approach to sneak in the backdoor of your subconscious for some inspiration and insight. At this workshop, you’ll have an opportunity engage creative shadow play, in service to insight and upliftment. There will be an opportunity to translate your shadow awareness into a meaningful outer action. The processes we will engage can be implemented into your regular integral practice.
Shadow is an ally in your evolution.
FRIDAY 25th 15:30 – 16:00
Navigate Deep and Wide: Facilitative Leadership
with Usha Guballa, Certified Integral Facilitator
What makes for a good leader? As we evolve through stages of development, that answer changes rapidly. Leadership maturity is a central requirement to building an organization that genuinely embodies the mindsets, behaviors, values, and structures of Teal. Yet leadership in its essence shifts towards a more dynamically hierarchical structure. The complexity of our current time calls on us to step into this deep kind of leadership- one that navigate wider and wider spheres of perspective, one that is both facilitative and directional. At its core, this kind of leadership depends on cultivating our Self as an instrument of change. Come to the workshop to find out what it takes to embody and coach this kind of leadership!
FRIDAY 25th 16:05 – 16:45
A Dance-Theater Performance
with Lauren Beale and Brooke McNamara.
Choose One is a raw, intimate dance-theater production that sets up Lauren Beale and Brooke McNamara (Creators/Performers) in a context both fabricated and completely real. Instructing the audience that at the end of the show they must vote between Lauren and Brooke – who gets to stay and who has to go – the performance becomes a navigation of the pressure of wanting to be chosen and not wanting to be separated. In this real-time dilemma, which echoes the reality of choice and consequence, separation from those we love, and connectedness that transcends having to say goodbye, an array of competitive strategies and coping mechanisms are humorously, tenderly, and tragically revealed. Through dialogue, dance, and improvisation, the performers’ presence and humanity are under demand, as they compete, enter conflict, surrender and let go into vulnerability. Eventually, an experience of bare realness and oneness is discovered.
FRIDAY 25th 16:45 – 18:00
Feminine Shadow and Women in Leadership
with Maria Bailey, Certified Integral Facilitator
Feminine Shadow work is an opportunity to come together with other women in a playful, daring and ultimately impactful way, to gain new understandings about the ways women negotiate power and relationships with masterful yet obscure dynamics and find ways to work through them by becoming more responsible onto ourselves and revealing to other women.
SATURDAY 26th 15:30 – 16:45
The Perennial Fallacy of Developmental Altitude: Enhancing Your Developmental Acumen
with Integral Facilitator Faculty Member, Developmental Coach and Author, Rob McNamara
Many of us are operating in less mature forms of understanding developmental theory and its practices. As a result, our engagements to work developmentally with people and organizations often suffer. Unknowingly we often negatively impact our own well-being as well as the development of the people, groups and organizations we work with.
This presentation is a first step toward enhancing, refining and maturing our collective developmental acumen. We focus on enacting more of your own human elegance in how you understand and work with development. Participants shift their thinking away from the idea that people are “at” or “in” a stage of development. A more accurate and nuanced view of dynamic developmental processes is fostered. Pragmatic Neurological and biological supports are supplied to unlock greater efficacies in how you foster your own and other people’s development.
SATURDAY 26th 16:45 – 18:00
Feedback as a daily practice
with Nina Jensen, Certified Integral Facilitator.
Practice giving and receiving feedback in a skillful, clear way. The practice of feedback is an important intra- and inter-personal skill in communities and teamwork that wants to develop.
With an intentional practice we can become more fluent and skilled in giving and receiving feedback. In that way we can see feedback as a sign of compassion and care, that creates a we-space. In doing so, we might grow more conscious of our idealizations and be able to loosen our fixations to certain self-identities.
In many work places feedback is not a deliberate practice. The risk is that we either shy away from speaking clearly or we tend to burst out with our feelings, when we finally do speak.
By working intentionally with feedback, teams can mature this skill — both as an intra- and inter-personal practice that supports the overall intention of the organization, team or community.
Practicing feedback is also a wonderful opportunity to work with the I-perspective (1st person), the You-perspective (2nd person) and the It-perspective (3rd person).
