By providing an examination of culture and its implications, we get more clarity about our personal and collective identity and related constructs as identification, integration and knowledge and develop the cultural intelligence. We sence how people experience and engage cultural difference from continuum which extends from ethnocentrism, through ethnorelativism, the experience of one’s own and other cultures as “relative to context.“ to the cosmopolitanism.
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a strengths-based, inclusive and actionable approach towards large system change and development. Appreciative Inquiry works on the premise that every organic system has some inherent generative forces, which when amplified, unleash positive energy and enable collective commitment.
The growth increases through integration and balance, so we look for certain balance between the development and integrity and promote a conscious, harmonious and steadily developing in the space of our system. The integral approach is inclusive or holistic rather than exclusivist or reductive, and it values and integrates multiple explanations and methodologies.
In this course we will also focus on:
- Appreciative Inquiry
- Integral Theory
- Intercultural Competence
- Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

Our program takes place in the Island of Crete, one of the most exotic destinations of the Aegean Sea in Greece. The workshop and the accommodation is at the unique 4-star village resort of Porto Platanias in Chania that provides you with safe and luxurious accommodations.
It is the perfect place to combine personal growth with holidays. This Mediterranean destination embraces both sea and charming nature. Porto Platanias Village is located within walking distance from the beach and the village of Platanias. Local taverns, Greek eateries, and arts shops draw people from all around the world and contribute to the vibrant feeling of the Cretan summer, still offering 30°C (86°F) daytime temperatures and 25°C (77°F) warm sea to enjoy in September.

Our second venue for the workshop in April 2022 is Berlin. This amazing city does not need to be introduced, however here are the top reasons why Berlin is the greatest city ever :-)The city is still rebuilding, re-painting, and its history is still only yesterday’s news. You will find the great Art and Architecture here, next to amazing diversity. And if you weren’t aware that you love metal-wearing, graffiti-painting, jewellery-designing, green-tea-drinking, retro-clothes-shopping, noodle-eating and flowery-dress-wearing people, well you’ll feel your inner punk start to bop her head.
We are looking forward to meeting you in this most beautiful city.
