Vision of the Institute The name of our institute emphasizes our intention:a forum is a public meeting place. Meta stands for overlooking the whole, acquiring backgrounds and coherence. It is our concern to enable committed people to meet each other – to explore together, to apply, and to put to the test the patterns and possibilities of change hidden in human communication. At the same time, we teach the leading models for change, methods, and aspects of application in our trainings; like NLP, systemic coaching, mediation, hypnotherapy, systemic constellation work, and many more. In this connection we think of ourselves as an Academy for Creative Communication, which incorporates and integrates several fields. The centerpiece of our work are the biannual multiple week-long courses for further professional training, the summer campus and the winter campus. They build the forum in which there is room for social exchange, intensive learning experiences, profound encounters, and professional development. Our former vision, to do this internationally and interculturally, has already been realized by us. Now we want the world campus to establish a form of further education which is open worldwide; in which not only existing methods and models are taught, but in which we want to develop new solutions and models for the global problems of our time. Apart from these transnational activities, we also offer additional professional trainings in numerous German cities, in which trusted cooperation partners are supporting us.

Strength of the Institute The integrative training model, the summer campus and the winter campus, belong to the most varied compact trainings worldwide, and to the ones richest in tradition. Leading international trainers teach here, and we offer the latest training contents in areas like NLP, coaching, mediation, hypnotherapy and systemic constellation work, each complementing each other. To connect methods, bring together people from different countries and cultures, to develop new models, and to keep developing and challenging ourselves, belongs to the strong points of our institute.

Data and Facts Founding of the Institute: in 1986, Bernd Isert founded the Forum of Meta-Communication as a network for seminars, which today is present in many cities with independent partner institutes. In 1990, Bernd Isert organized the first Forum summer campus near Oldenburg, to which biannual follow-up events were soon added: the summer campus and the winter campus. The countries and places in which the campuses were held so far are Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, Tenerife, Hungary, the Caribbean, Austria, Cyprus, Turkey, Tunisia, Malta, and currently, Brazil. Another important series of events with an excellent reputation and tradition are the „Heidelberg Impulses“, which are organized in cooperation with the Heidelberg Academy of Health Education.

Completed trainings The name of our institute embodies our philosophy: A forum is a public meeting place. Meta stands for the big picture, for acquiring background information, for coherence. Since 1990 we have organized and held our famous residential training programs dedicated to new modes of communication, change work, and human development: In July/August we are offering the International SummerCamp in Abano Terme, Italy, and our International WorldCamp for Systemic Change will take place in Brazil. At these residential training programs we offer you: a place for global and intercultural encounters a home for the art of modern communication and change a place where your own joy and naturalness can blossom a place were the goals are as numerous as the ways to achieve them The heart of the learning processes and encounters is the annual international SummerCamp and the WorldCamp. They combine living, learning, and social cooperation. This holistic model has become an important part of the international culture of further trainings, providing the ideal atmosphere for an intensive learning experience and chance for personal growth encounters with numerous highly qualified trainers exchange and social contact among the participants across all training levels Over and over again, our camps have proved to be creative hothouses. New ideas and projects have been born and later realized. Where else do you have the opportunity to combine learning and vacation and try out new models of life and communication in a protected environment? Where else can you relax outside your usual (work) environment and get to know other countries, meet other people, and learn about other cultures?
