LEADING AS SACRED PRACTICE 2022
An in-person retreat for leaders, hosts, facilitators, and other change makers
Join us for our fourth LASP retreat at the Beuerhof Seminar Center in Germany
Sept. 11 - 15, 2022
These times call for different ways of knowing and leading.
It’s time to question our approach to leadership and explore new possibilities with curiosity, creativity, and a willingness to evolve.
Together we will discover new forms of leadership that catalyze mutual sense-making and wise action.
Since 2016, a network of organizational pioneers has gathered annually to explore sacred leadership. The urgency of our exploration grows in this time of war, pandemic, climate change, and other global crises.
The Leading as Sacred Practice (LASP) Retreat is a place to liberate ourselves from our conditioning and embrace new forms. Now is the time to invite and amplify emergence and innovation in our collective consciousness. We invite you to join us and co-create new forms of leadership.
This Retreat is For...
Organizational leaders who are guiding systemic change.
Consultants, facilitators, and other change agents who lead group processes.
Innovators exploring new ways of thinking, sensing, and collaborating.
People who seek to better align their values with their leadership.
Anyone actively working to create new social forms to support our transition to a more unified world.
Six Ways of Leading as Sacred Practice
In 2021 we explored these LASP Ways. We will share our understanding and push further into practices and principles.
Co-facilitators Alan Briskin, David Sibbet, Gisela Wendling, and Holger Scholz will create a strong, open container for participants’ collective work.
They are senior organizational consultants, educators, and authors with deep experience and a passion for working on the edge of their own and the group's learning.

You will experience...
Working with archetypal patterns of change, ceremony and ritual to support transformational processes.
Activating the old mind in service of the future that is emerging.
Overcoming collective folly and bringing forth collective wisdom.
Moving from a field of separation to one of interconnectivity.
Authorizing ourselves and each other to step up to social action.
“The notion of “circle” is probably the best way to describe the experience. I had no idea that I would be challenged to the degree I was... Thankfully I chose to accept the opportunity to “go there” in fully embracing the invitation to work through my own leadership challenges and opportunities in such a supportive environment.
I continue to experience the benefits of LASP, including practices that help to bring the sacred into daily life as a leader. I also continue to celebrate the authentic friendships that emerged.”
Claire Lachance, CEO Institute of Noetic Sciences
“Leading in the end is all about helping people lead themselves, and leaders do not lead people, but consciousness" (Götz Werner). I ask myself, how do I lead consciousness? Is this the spiritual dimension of leadership? In our secular world this is an unusual question. LASP offers a protected space for dialogues about the future, the new, and the unknown and it has allowed me to be part of such magical moments again."
Michael Knauf, former executive, new work activist and facilitator, Germany
"It is a rare occasion when such precious and diverse disciplines and practices come together as they are in this unique event: the individual and the collective, leadership and service to the world, embodiment and embracing the sacredness of nature around us, and business along with consciousness work.
‘Leading As Sacred Practice’ holds a special place in me."
Mathias Weitbrecht, Visual Facilitators, Germany

ABOUT the BEUERHOF SEMINAR CENTER
Click here for a map and photos of the Beuerhof. Having a special connection to the land proved important in our last three gatherings. For our 2022 conference, we have chosen to return to the Beuerhof Seminar Center in Germany, a special site for those of us who have been participating in the LASP program. It is in the Vulcan Eifel in Germany, south of Cologne and west of Frankfurt. The food is all organic and sensitive to different needs. We will share a beautiful communal dining room. We stay in rooms in the large main house and some in cabins. There are several medicine circles and places to walk and meditate.
