Healing a World in Crisis

Leading with Authenticity and Love

1st to 3rd June 2023, Reykjavik, Iceland

A transformative retreat

For the first time, the Spirit of Humanity Forum will take the form of a retreat for leaders to provide the possibility of a more in-depth exploration of the theme. It will offer its well-recognised safe and nurturing atmosphere using the three pillars of dialogue, listening and silence. Together we will consider the impact of personal and collective healing in life and society while exploring questions such as:

  • How do we heal ourselves from our current experiences and the deep memories passed on through generations?
  • How can our systems of governance and governing institutions facilitate healing?
  • What is the role of authenticity and love in healing our relationship with the planet; can we restructure our priorities and use of resources?


To support depth, we will limit the numbers to 120 participants. We hope experiences at the Forum will open perspectives and insights that will make a significant difference for everyone involved, a profound shift of persception in how we relate to ourselves and to life.

The SoH Forum invites leaders, practitioners, professionals, thinkers and change-makers from diverse fields.

Language of Peace at Fríkirkjan in Reykjavík

Peace is a tremendous power that has the potential to bring our internal and external worlds back into harmony and balance. Peace it not just the absence of conflict. Peace is a creative energy.

During this unique and inspirational event, hosted by the Spirit of Humanity Forum, Fríkirkjan in Reykjavík and Höfði Reykjavik Peace Centre, we will together explore and experience the Language of Peace through music, stories from the heart, poetry and guided meditation.

The event is organised in connection with the 6th Spirit of Humanity Forum on 1st-3rd June 2023 in Iceland for leaders and change-makers from all continents seeking to contribute towards a lasting, positive transformation in the world.

Join us for a profound and nurturing experience, and let's celebrate peace together! All are welcome.
