Salon: Experimenting with the Theory of Living Human Systems

Experimenting with Living Human Systems Theory

conducted by Peter Kunneman and Hella Ritz

Monday, November 21, 2011 from 19.00 p.m. – 21.30 p.m.

Center Venwoude, Vuurse Steeg 1, Lage-Vuursche


On November 21, we will transform the CHE Salon into a laboratory for group dynamics. We become a living human system that experiments with its own development. We discover how to connect and build on each other and how to integrate differences in the group without creating scapegoats. We learn to weaken the hindering forces in our living human system, so that the stimulating forces lead to developmental steps. The interaction method we use is called 'functional subgroups', a method developed by Yvonne Agazarian in the context of her Theory of Living Human Systems ( This evening you will be introduced to new possibilities for guiding group processes.
