CCI workshop history

The founding process of Co-Counselling International (CCI) in 1974 was a year later sealed at the first CCI meeting in the USA in April 1975 and that summer in the first meeting in Europe. Since the CCI-approach has spread over Europe, first England and the Netherlands and soon after that in Ireland and - though not participating in a kind of European community connection - also for instance in Germany. In Hungary the first CCI meeting was in 1989.These yearly meetings, since 1993 also every three year in Aotearoa (New Zealand) , are famous as the absolute international meeting point for those who under scribe the core business of CCI as they understand this. At local or national CCI activities of CCI communities, members from communities of other countries are welcome by invitation as well.Precondition for access is, that they have completed their CCI fundamental course from a CCI accredited trainer or a member of CCI. The absence of any organisational and or authoritarian body in the CCI world and so also for these workshops, attended by those who have completed their CCI fundamental training, allows that these participants are free to facilitate at the spot all the upcoming items in the way they think themselves appropriate within the core business of CCI. The number of participants, attending these international workshops because of their way of working or their item itself, may possibly be one of their criteria to facilitate those workshops or not. The absence of any special authority in the CCI world means also, that with respect to oneself as well as to others, with - full and not judging - attention and respecting also each others autonomy, they can start any research they like.  At every international CCI meeting of 3-5 days, all participants are invited to attend the so called 'business meeting' to make all decisions they might need as the community they are for those days together, as well as sharing their actual community situations. Their decision making is by consensus.

introduction to CCI

CCI wants to be...

a place where differences of personal conscience are fully respected and honoured. CCI is also a place to celebrate and honour our emotions as a source of growth. By creating the preconditions for the CCI process, we allow our human potentialities to blossom now and in the future in self responsibility. In CCI we practice being respectful to ourselves and others, sharing on an equal base as we learn in our fundamentals.
