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.”
People hold our organization and, in its turn, our organization holds its people. We are a group of Co-Creators.
We welcome you to
Become an Individual Co-creator
We are still working with the concept of organizational co-creation if you have ideas or want to explore an organizational Co-creator relationship, feel free to reach out to René Molenkamp.

Group Relations International’s mission is simple.
Using Group Relations methodology, working spiritually, and placing emphasis on the field of social justice, we aspire to make the world a better place.
What is the
“The work” is at the core of a spiral that encompasses a variety of related approaches including group relations theory and methodology, adaptive leadership, collective consciousness, the existence of the field, shadow work, spirituality, social justice, etc.
We use group relations methodology to teach people about groups, systems and their place in them. In this experiential model people often have powerful insights about themselves, their roles, interpersonal interactions, authority and leadership. People experience a sense of the power of energy in groups, both constructive and destructive energy. With insights and attention to application, participants can become a positive force of any group they are part of.
We particularly support people who work in the field of social justice through our events. The presence and absence of diversity, equity and inclusion are revealed and studied in our conferences and participants are better equipped to “see” and address related issues in their own organizations.
We acknowledge that there is a "More" that we cannot define or understand, but for which we make room to explore. We know that boundaries between people are artificial. We are all drops in an ocean. Our spirituality events help to slow down and reflect, to take an eagle’s view of what is going on in ourselves and in the world. Often people feel rejuvenated and return to the world of work with renewed energy and a different perspective.
Many people who have experienced “the work” have often expressed a desire to stay connected through a more formal association with GRI and continue to learn more as they use aspects of “the work” in their jobs and organizations.
We have developed a community of GRI Co-Creators and we welcome you to be part of it. Together we will form the holder of possibilities and potential.
