Theory U: Social Presencing Theater Basics

In this weekend workshop we offer an introduction to Social Presencing Theater within the Theory U framework.

Social Presencing Theater (SPT) is a series of embodied practices for understanding our current reality and uncovering future possibilities, developed by Presencing Institute and articulated as a practical application of Scharmer’s Theory U.

Drawing on the movement arts and contemplative traditions, SPT brings to the surface a clearer sense of the relationships, hidden dynamics, and emerging possibilities inherent in a group, organization or larger social system. It allows co-creators in a given system to gain insight into the current situation, seeing potential opportunities for change.

Video about SPT:

Using awareness based movement as a tool to unlock our full body wisdom, we can transform mental and emotional blockages and thereby give way for new insights and fresh, inspired action. It is ‘The Art of Making a True Move’.

The workshop is taught by Louise Jorgensen assisted by Annie Blair.
