LEADING AS SACRED PRACTICE 2022
Join us for our fourth LASP retreat at the Beuerhof Seminar Center in Germany
Sept. 11 to the 15th, 2022
These are times that call for different ways of knowing and leading.
We need to question our mechanistic approach to leadership, and start listening to something larger with openness, respect, and. a willingness to change.
Learn how Leadership inspired by new ways of leading and knowing can help us with mutual sense making, decision making and wise action.
Since 2016, a network of organizational pioneers have been gathering to address the sacred in leadership. In this time of the pandemic and rising concerns over social justice, ethics, and the environment there is ever greater urgency.
The Leading as Sacred Practice (LASP) Retreat is a place to shed conventions and embrace new forms. Something positive is emerging in our collective consciousness and we want to amplify it. We invite you to join us and co-create this experience.
THIS SUMMIT IS FOR...
People who are seeking to refine ways of leading congruent with their values.
Thought leaders bringing forth new ways of thinking and sensing.
Anyone who is actively working on creating social forms that can support a transition to a more connected world.
People who lead group process as consultants, facilitators, and change agents
Organizational leaders who are guiding transformational change.
"I have experienced good leaders being able to hold a space that connects us to the source of the future, the new, the unknown. LASP offers a protected space for dialogues about such phenomena and it has allowed me to be part of magical moments again."
Michael Knauf , former corporate executive, new work activist & facilitator, Germany
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.
Our Ensemble Facilitators
Leading as Sacred Practice is co-facilitated by Alan Briskin, David Sibbet, Gisela Wendling, and Holger Scholz, who are exploring “ensemble facilitation” to create a strong, open container for participants’ collective work.
They are all senior organizational consultants, educators, and authors with deep experience and a passion for working on the edge of their own and the groups’ 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 felt that our group developed trust almost immediately, which enabled the deep work and sharing to occur early on in the program. 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 from this transformative week together.”
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. In my 19 years as a leader, I have repeatedly experienced magical moments that I could not explain.
For example, I have experienced good leaders being able to hold a space that connects us to the source of the future, the new, the unknown. LASP offers a protected space for dialogues about such phenomena and it has allowed me to be part of such magical moments again."
Michael Knauf, former corporate 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 and I can highly recommend it to all those that truly want to evolve in community for a higher purpose."
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.
