Logosynthesis Summer Conference 2019:
The Self and the Fields

July 7 -12 in Riolo Terme Italy

Since 2008, international groups from four continents have met each year for a Logosynthesis Summer Conference It’s the most dynamic event you can imagine to learn to know more about Logosynthesis, this new, effective and elegant model of guided change.

In 2019, we’ll again offer a six-day learning event for professionals with all levels of training in Logosynthesis.

Logosynthesis is not a one-way street, not a finished, coherent system. Like all new developments it has come from trial and error. Now, after 14 years, we have the life energy octagon as the base of the Path seminars of the Practitioner curriculum, and we have the field model as the core of the Master Practitioner curriculum. Both models are now accompanied by a series of understandable and applicable protocols and techniques. If you look at those models it almost seems as if Logosynthesis emerged in the form of the smooth narrative presented in these two models, and as if it has always been like that.

In a time in which Logosynthesis’ founder is slowly stepping back, the Summer Conference becomes an international stage for a new generation of Practitioners, Master Practitioners, Instructors, Supervisors and Trainers.

The Concept

The Self and the Fields is the theme of this year’s Logosynthesis Summer Conference. Based on our experience in our training and previous conferences, we have adapted the structure and the content, fine-tuned to the specific training needs of professionals learning Logosynthesis on many levels.

For those training as Logosynthesis Practitioners, participation will count as Logosynthesis Live. For those training as LIA Master Practitioners, participation will count as one of three required Master Classes. Trainers-in-training who already participated in a six-day event can raise their competence and experience on their own level, as co-trainers in the working groups.

The Staff

This conference will be directed by Mary O’Donoghue. Mary will lead the staff meetings and the plenary sessions. She will cooperate with other experienced professionals, who will will have a role in the guidance of the working groups and the presentation of theory and methods. Mary will work together with four experienced Trainers in Logosynthesis.

This year’s conference staff consists of Suzanne von Blumenthal,  Astrid Klein Lankhorst, Fabio Pierotti and Christin Aannerud. They will be assisted by Logosynthesis Trainers.

The members of the staff bring many years of experience in the field of psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, coaching and organisational development. All of them are experienced professionals, supervisors, and Master Practitioners in Logosynthesis

In the Sunday sessions of both practice groups and working groups, participants explore their learning options for the conference.

Monday to Thursday

Each of these days will start with a plenary session, with a meditation sequence, followed by 40 minutes of Exploring the Field, an opportunity so discuss anything that’s relevant for the learning of attendees as well as staff members. After a coffee break, this learning event is followed by a break and two 45′ slots with presentations and discussions on subjects related to the theme of the conference.

After a two-hour lunch break, the practice groups will meet for an hour. In these sessions they will work in the same format used in other seminars of our Logosynthesis training program. After a tea break, a working group session follows in the presence of one or two staff members, in which the attendees get the opportunity to work on individual issues.


On Friday morning, the attendees will meet in newly created, future pacing groups, to prepare the transition from the conference to daily life at home. Staff members are assigned to each of these groups. After the coffee break, a closing plenary will take place, in which there will be a place for an integration of the learning of the conference as a whole, as well as a closing exercise around the theme of the conference.
