    Starts: Tuesday Jan 30th 2pm

    Location: Silverstream Retreat Centre



    There will be 3 main themes running through the event designed to serve you, your business and our shared community commons.


    This is our annual gathering

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


    Get work done while building connections with your community

    Work is a big part of Enspiral. We'll be hosting a pop-up co-working space. Come and be productive while having the opportunities to join in for meals, social time and an occasional workshop or two.


    Space for your ideas and visions

    On the first day, we'll convene an open-space marketplace to collaboratively build a schedule of workshops and conversations over the retreat. These can be working group focused (how we make Enspiral better), interest group focused (how we change the world), or anything in between.

    3 days, 2 nights residential tickets

    Stay overnight.

    $350 + GST

    Option 2:

  • Art of Hosting Training

    How can a deeper understanding of facilitation & hosting allow us to lead more intentionally? Strengthen our work? Interconnect and support each other? Unleash our individual and collective potential?


    This is a 3-day massively hands on training where we will be in practice and co-learning around a different way of organising, leading and governing.

    No matter what our domain of work or our role, facilitation and hosting are a part of it. They are key skills for our times. This training is for anyone, from New Zealand or elsewhere, who is interested in developing skills and consciousness in the way facilitation and hosting weave into our work - a form of "facilitative leadership".

    This will be a unique opportunity to learn alongside leading practitioners through the Art of Hosting tradition.
    Join us for a 3-day residential course (Monday Feb 5th to Thursday Feb 8th) at Riverslea Retreat Centre
