An experiential conference in the Tavistock tradition designed to enable members to extend their awareness of group and organizational processes and of their participation in them. The method is learning through experience and reflection. The design of the conference is based on the assumption that by examining and interpreting experiences within the conference institution, members will be enable to enlarge their understanding of their own institutions and their roles in them.

The design allows members to explore among other things:

The conference is designed for members from diverse occupations: professionals, business women and men, community leaders, organizational consultants, program directors, administrators, managers students and paraprofessionals. Individuals from business, education, mental health, law government, social services and religion have attended conferences in the past.
