Amara Events

We offer a set of yearly open Amara events and events in collaboration with other organisations and partners, upon request. We design each event and choose the facilitators with care, to match the developmental needs and interest of the group at hand. All our events are done in the spirit of inquiry, in a experiential learning environment and participants express their experience as powerful and transformational.

Amara is one of three organisations credited to offer a GLP certification workshop. We arrange one each year in the Nordic region and are open to invitations to offer it in partnership in other corners of the world as well. Contact us for partnering with the GLP certification workshop or any other event.

TESTIMONIALS

The Global Leadership Profile Certification workshop in Helsinki, May 2017, was a life changing experience for me. The atmosphere that Jane and Heidi were able to evoke in the group was very special. It was truly living the transformational leadership in action, where every moment was a place for self-reflection and sensing, when to take action, and when to be in silence. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone interested in deeper development, and I suggest to engage in the evening activities as well. It was great to have Bill and Elaine on the line as well, as they are the theoretical experts of the GLP. The international group and great venue location at the heart of Helsinki really highlighted this amazing experience.

I’ve been learning, practicing and training in the field of organisational development and self-organisation in the UK for 25 years; and after taking the Matrix Leadership course in the US this year I felt compelled to bring it to the UK because I think it brings something new and much-needed. Of the many tools / methodologies / processes I’ve learned, I haven’t found any that build a ground of health in the relational matrix, work with differences, and then rather than differences becoming a source of division, use these differences as a source of collective intelligence and distributed leadership. I find it a deep, thorough, profound and essential addition to a field busy with more superficial quick-fixes.
