Integral Facilitator Residential Retreat
6-days, May 15th-20th, Tuesday to Sunday, in Budapest at the Danubius Health Spa Resort Hotel on Margaret Island. This retreat is the final residential part of the European Integral Facilitator Cohort 9-month program, which started in September 2017.

People taking Susanne’s course and the Spiral Dynamics course will be at the same hotel in parallel halls, so in the breaks and evenings, it is a great opportunity to mingle! It’s already a “little IEC” experience. The integral social flow begins with around 60-80 people. The “IF” people might join the buzz too; evenings are great times to meet and discover who is in town and join the tribes.
