I come from the West of Hungary having lived my life in a village, Bágyogszovát, until 13 when we moved to a town, Győr.  Bágyogszovát was formative in my life: freedom, wandering in nature, simple people,

Originally, I graduated as a teacher of Arts and Languages ( Hungarian-English-Scandinavian Studies and later, Hungarian as a Foreign Language) at ELTE-Budapest University.
Soon after that opportunity visited me and I became a co-founder of the Hungarian affiliate of International House -IH-Language School in the early 1980s. What an excitement! energy, focus and potential! One of the first cooperatives in the thaw of the communist regime, we launched it with great zeal. I already was a lecturer at the English Dept. of the Language Institute at the University of Economics. Yet, IH was a real entrepreneurial opportunity! which seemed to have attracted me more than research and academy life at the time.

In 1988 opportunity visited me again and I studied and got teacher training certificates in co-counselling, assertiveness, six-cat coaching at the Human Potential Research Group founded by John Heron at the University of Surrey, UK. What an amazing innovation in adult education it was!…those days. Having come home I eagerly wanted to share my new experiences and skills and knowledge, but the university I had been working for was absolutely closed off from such innovations, so in 1989  together with my society, I also changed system and culture and co-founded Ariadne Gaia Foundation , AGA to enhance knowledge transfer for personal, spiritual and professional development for people of all walks, with special focus on people in the helping professions, like educators, psychologists and counsellors all around the country. We also introduces leading edge, metaphysics based new, holistic studies that still go on and inspire so many of our participants.

In the mid 90s, yet again opportunity visited me and as a facilitator and consultant, I was invited to be part of William Isaac’s Dialogue Facilitators’ Project at the Centre for Organizational Learning at MIT, USA  from 1992-1994. Some years later after SoL was established from MIT and in 1998 while at a conference in Lodon, I was invited to join the growing Global Network Stewardship Circle of Society for Organisational Learning, a follow up of OLC at MIT in the States.
As a result I co-founded an other NGO, Learning Organisations for Sustainability, SoL Hungary. first as a fractal community of Global SoL, ( Society for Organisational Learning community) under the auspices of AGA, later as a separate legal NGO entity. Since then I have been the chair and core inspiration to this organisation.

In the 1st decade of the 21st century,  having been deeply involved in regional and local development programs of the UNDP and more specifically some Roma communities, and later having been a local representative in our municipality, I became acutely aware of the need of Healing dialogues for Societal Healing for Peace and Wholeness via integrating large group dialoguic processes with presencing, mindfulness and constellation work. Thus I just initiated a Duna Network of WisdomWeavers,we empower people by evoking local traditions woven into new science and  transpersonal and metaphysical awareness. Wisdomweavers we all are.

I have specialized in developing capacities to facilitate systemic and transformative dialogues  and collective, organizational healing to enhance collective intelligence, mindful mediation, generic and strategic dialogues for community building. I hold the theory and practice of learning organizations. Studied and practiced large group systemic facilitation with Billie Alban, Barbara Benedict Bunker, Juanita Brown, Toke P. Moeller and others and has been practicing co-counselling and mindful awareness inspired by  John Heron, metaphysics and spirituality from Wictor Charon, Maria Szepes, the Emissary network and mainly and mostly Gillian R. Wright and the Ageless Wisdom, mindfulness from  Jon Kabat-Zinn, constellation work from Peter Orban and Wilfried Nelles and Andwynn St Just, systemic awareness from Peter Senge, presencing from Otto Scharmer, perseverance to the spirit from my mother… they all have contributed to my practice in facilitation and coaching for soul presence in social healing.

My work experience spans over borders both geographically and in social devides. Thus I work as a university lecturer as well as a trainer and educator, a facilitator, change management and organizational learning consultant, and metaphysics teacher and mindfulness and bohmean dialogue based mediator and healer. My 2 decade long experience in dialogue, Art of Hosting and The world café offers an aware and skilled experience in many diverse situations.
Developing Mindful Nations, of aware, compassionate leadership, communities and politics is more important now than ever.

My background to aspire for this world is supported my long dedicated inner leadership cultivated by spiritual awakening since 1976, mindful practices, such as Vipassana, mindfulness, awareness based dialogues and cocounselling as well as mindful facilitation.

the “Congress” of the Emissary International
