Mon 5th to Sat 10thShow in Google map🇨🇭 SOL Summer RetreatSeminarhotel Möschberg, Möschberg 7B, 3506 Grosshöchstetten, SchweizIt’s time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our SOL Summer Retreat. It started with a group of 6 enthousiastic SF Practitioners in Switzerland. The mixture of learning, sharing and relaxing together has proven to be successful and very inspiring! It’s one of the best means to fully recharge your batteries!

Following Steve de Shazer’s quote “look at what works and do more of it” we will once again gather with a group of enthusiastic Solution Focused practitioners to connect, inspire, be inspired and fully energized while learning about SF through friendly Open Space exchange, relaxing in the summertime, enjoying the peace and calm of a beautiful venue.

May we invite you to www.moeschberg.ch, a family owned small seminar hotel on top of the hill with a stunning view. This place is just perfect with flexible workshop spaces and a large garden. You will enjoy the hospitality, a wonderful tasty cuisine and the quiet of the mountains (with just a few cows grazing around). The inn can accommodate just around 30 people and will be reserved for us, Retreaters.

As for the program:  we’ll keep the well-proven flexible Open Space formula throughout the Retreat. For those who have not been yet to a retreat: Do you have creative, innovative, playful SF practices to share? Are you looking for supportive partners for professional ideas you are about to develop? Do you have questions you want to discuss with colleagues who have had vast experience in SF work? Come to the Retreat! We all have SF in common, so: trust that the right people will be there to create the right moment so that the right things can happen – in the workshops and in-between them!
