We are simply trying to hold space for

people interested in group relations work.

We serve as a home for people who have experienced the power of group relations work, particularly in combination with spirituality and social justice. We want to nurture the GR network by offering a place to co-create as individuals and/or organizations. We are open to collaboration around group relations conferences and application events, writing, reflecting and meeting. We offer to stay connected with “the work” in various ways. We pay attention to where the energy takes us.

 

The programs we offer at this moment are listed in the activities section.

As we are growing in numbers, we are beginning to create local (and virtual) communities that people may join to nurture “the work.”

Past

Student Writing

Close to twenty years ago GRI was conceived on the back porch of a house in Washington DC with three people: one person from Palestine,

one from the US and one from the Netherlands. A few years later a small group of five individuals from across the globe built on this initial foundation and explored the energies and connections between each other and committed to harnessing this energy for the good of the world.

 

As a result, GRI was born. Our passion centers around Group Relations, Social Justice, and Spirituality. Feeling that over-imposing too much structure on the organization was not in service of our larger intention, our leadership model looked quite different from other nonprofit organizations in that whoever had more energy took the lead to organize events, often in pairs.

 

The general philosophy guiding founding members is that everyone is equal, and must trust each other, working both collaboratively and independently, but most importantly, fluidly. The first GRI-community started in the Netherlands when the five co-founders created GRI.

 

Now active GRI communities are present in San Diego, Boston, Philadelphia, and Denmark. We have GRI Co-creators in many cities in the US and in the following countries: The Netherlands, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Poland, Singapore, India, Denmark, Jamaica, Israel and Australia.

Past Events

GRI has (co-)sponsored group relations conferences or trainings in the Netherlands, Ireland, China, Peru and the United States. We agreed to co-sponsor a conference in Italy and are in conversation with GR organizations in other countries to co-sponsor their events. Of particular note are the Boston Conference series on Social Justice, the On the Matter of Black Lives Conferences and the Women’s Lives conference.

We held three Collective Consciousness Conversations events, two in the Netherlands and one in Wales in which we asked the questions: What world can we create and what kind of leadership will enable that; What is our collective and individual accountability to take up leadership in this turbulent world; and ow can we best use our voice, how do we give direction to our actions, how do we express ourselves?

We have been active virtually in organizing the yearly Winter Solstice Reflection and What is Your Word? GRI’s Just Water’s Facebook group has raised funds for five water wells in villages in Bangladesh through the Netherlands-based Max Foundation.

Besides the Just Water Facebook group, we also maintain the Group Relations International Facebook group and the Appreciation, Inspiration and Sacred Moments Facebook group. We organized a virtual art gallery on patterns and an event called Creativity in the Collective. We are present on Instagram and Twitter.

We have organized one day or half day events in the Netherlands, Philadelphia, San Diego, Boston and Wales.

We offered a year-long training program Energy in Groups with three 5-day modules in The Netherlands, Wales and California in which we focused on me and the small group, on we and communities and on our field and beyond. Finally, GRI has organized a series of more reflective events.

Yearly five-day Silent Retreats in California (since 2014). In 2019 we added an additional yearly Silent Retreat in Denmark. We have organized yearly Working Silence Events in France (since 2015) and we moved this program to the Netherlands in 2019, where it has become an independent program.

We have also organized a Winter Walk in the Netherlands, a five-week Spiritual Path Exploration as a virtual event, a spirituality day and a five-day workshop called The Soul’s Journey in Oregon.

Last but not least we have provided many individuals with partial or full scholarships for group relations related events.

A more formal history of GRI will be created, not only to preserve the past and guide the present, but to also lay the foundation of GRI’s future.

Impact

While it may be difficult to quantify specific outcomes of GRI, there is a deep knowing that it provides the container that activates the potential for the transformation of people, groups and systems. When people interact with GRI through any of its core ways of being – group relations, social justice or spirituality --, it changes the way they look at themselves, their role, their group, their organization, the system and ultimately, the world.

In changing the way of looking at the world, it changes the way of being in the world – the cultures we create, the communities we connect with, the decisions we make, and ultimately, the way we lead and impact others and our environment.

 

GRI creates community through the energy that people bring to it. A group relations conference or training, a virtual event, ongoing participation in one of our groups, or a retreat often leaves people with many reflections, questions and insights about their lives and the context in which this takes place. People then seek each other out to continue the conversations and talk about application and come back for other events. In many instances GRI offers a place (literally or in the mind) of belonging for people.

In 2016, I was introduced to the work of group relations through my graduate program at the University of San Diego. Though extremely uncomfortable and quite unnerving at times, I found myself more curious than anything. Since then, my curiosity has led me down a path of many conferences and trainings which have connected me deeper to myself and to a community I can call home. As a younger person in the field, my desire is to make this work more accessible to the millenial and gen z population so that it may live on and improve our ever changing and increasingly diverse world.

My connection to GRI goes back over a decade including serving as a founding circle member, board member, co-creator and co-responsible of Coaches for Causes. It has been a joyful, productive and rewarding association with an assemblage of warm and inspiring people. I continue to find the nexus of group relations, spirituality and social justice to be refreshing and inspiring.

My first group relations experience in 1992 profoundly influenced my life. Since then I have incorporated and applied group relations thinking in many of my professional activities as a therapist, coach, consultant and teacher. As the executive director of GRI, I want to make group relations experiences accessible for and available to many people and continue to build a group relations network. I strongly believe that the group relations methodology together with attention to social justice and spirituality can make the world a better place.
