The meeting is open to all co-counsellors who have completed a 40 hour course in the fundamentals of co-counselling and their children. At this meeting, co-counsellors from many countries meet for personal growth and to improve and intensify their co-counselling skills. Apart from co-counselling, there will be time for other workshops, personal experience and for pleasure. The motto for the week will be awareness ('aandacht' in Dutch, 'Achtsamkeit' in German).


The venue will be the adult education centre ("Landvolkshochschule") in Freckenhorst.The centre lies off a secluded road, bordering the woods on the fringe of Freckenhorst with its 8000 inhabitants. The village has a typical Westphalian charm amidst the flatter park-like landscape of the Münsterland: Freckenhorst is about 15 miles east of Münster (between Cologne and Hamburg) and is easily accessible by bus and train. The aim of the centre is to function as a place of meeting and open learning, with a meditation room, a chapel and numerous seminar rooms. The building is set in an extensive landscape, which is ideal for walks and recreation. The rooms are equipped with bath or shower, WC and telephone, are free from electrosmog and have been radiesthetically examined by a water diviner. Special needs can also be catered for. Camping in the grounds presents no problem. The kitchen offers four meals a day; vegetarian meals are available on request.

Children are very welcome at the CCI. However, they may need to be looked after by their parents.

House rules: Participants are requested to refrain from consuming alcohol during the week, and are asked not to smoke inside the building. According to the rules of the house, nudity is not permitted.



The meeting starts on Sunday, 2nd August. You are welcome to arrive from 3 p. m.
On Saturday, 8th August, the meeting ends after lunch.
