Three unique days of encounters, exchanges, and co-creation. Working with clients and participants, four pioneers from different schools of change work will explore how their skills, approaches, and ideas differ and how they can be combined in order to span the creative field leading from “I” to “we.”

Trainers and seminar participants will explore the following questions: What is –methodological differences aside– the essence of human change work? Are there any principles that can be discovered, formulated, and passed on? Is there a chance for a cross-methodological cycle that could provide the basis for future coaching or therapy?

A unique opportunity to learn from four excellent masters of their particular fields and to experience their interaction.


Friday, July 28 to Saturday, July 29, 2017

The first two days will take place in a seminar setting. In the presence of their colleagues and with live demonstrations, each of the trainers will give you a deeper understandingof their therapeutic or coaching approach and lead you through the art and conceptions of Systemic Structural Constellations, Hypnosystemic consulting, or Generative and Systemic Trance.

Saturday afternoon will be dedicated to the motto chosen by Bernd Isert, the recently deceased intitiator of the X-Change seminars. Not only was “building bridges” Bernd’s leitmotif as a developer who was able to discover hidden connections between seemingly divergent methods. He himself was a bridge designer, always supporting exchange, connections, and collaboration. The SummerCamp and the X-Change are living testimonies of this spirit.

That’s why Bernd, in a certain way, will be present for everyone participating in the discussion between Gunther Schmidt, Stephen Gilligan, Insa Sparrer, Matthias Varga von Kibéd, and the participants, who will explore issues as:

How can the methods under discussion support clients in creating helpful connections?

Did the SummerCamp and the X-Change contribute to building bridges between different schools and their representatives?

What kind of bridges can lead us into the future in times of radical change?
