• Enspiral Summer Festival 2018

  • What happens at an Enspiral Summer Festival?

    This is our big annual gathering. 4 days of connecting, reconnecting, sharing, growing and collective action!


    Summer Festival is a combination of high energy, socially engaging and mentally stimulating experiences as well as a chance to slow down, explore deep conversations, and reflect on your purpose and direction. The result is the unique combination of work and play that we call Enspiral!


    You can expect to be formally welcomed to the event and we will take plenty of time to meet and get to know each other. You can expect the freedom to find your own way and meet your own needs. You can expect small home groups to support connection and help participants to care for each other. You can expect facilitated processes to support the right workshop content to emerge.  

    Expect to reflect and re/connect

    This is the big annual gathering for Enspiral.

    Enspiral is about human relationships. A big part of Summer Festival is reconnecting with old friends and meeting new collaborators.

    Expect sharing and growing

    Time together to align our futures

    Updates from ventures and projects in our community, sharing opportunities, potential and ideas for future growth.


    Who knows, maybe you'll connect with a perfect co-founder, join a project or get involved starting something new....

    Expect action!

    This is a big chance to Enspiral together

    Enspiral is a central force in all our livelihoods and this is our chance to extend and build it together. Expect some hosted sessions to collectively sense, vision and execute Enspiral work together.

  • Supporting action!

    Summer Festival is designed around active participation from everyone.

    It is our biggest annual opportunity for face to face connection and action time to build Enspiral together.


    Be ready for lots of interaction, diverse views and equally diverse content as well as plenty of quiet space to reflect and reconnect. To help you make the most of the experience the event will be facilitated by the Summerfest team so you can focus on actively participating and making the most of the time.


    As always with Enspiral, we all bring the magic together.


    Time for yourself

    Opportunities to look after yourself

    There will be plenty of time and space to use Summerfest to do whatever you need to do for yourself. If that means escaping the chaos for quiet reflection and walking, doing yoga or reading a book - it's up to you!

    Connection with a homegroup

    Small group time

    We'll all be connected into small home groups to ensure everyone has some people that can connect with, rely on and look out for during the event.

    Connect with community

    Spaces for our whole Enspiral community to see each other and connect

    There will be several chances for the whole community to converge and do some bigger visioning, collective thinking and connecting together.

  • Dates
