European Summer Workshops 2022 – Registration Now Open!

Dear brothers and sisters,

This year, we are planning to hold three European summer workshops for Second Gen (for both BCs and Jacob children), and we are opening registrations. Importantly, we are offering a new 22+ workshop for the elder age group and have adjusted and rebranded the Senior HARP workshop to respond to the desire of elder brothers and sisters to join (please read details below).

We held two large summer workshops in both 2020 and 2021, carefully and successfully complying with the COVID-19 health and safety regulations throughout the programmes. Therefore, we are confident to responsibly organize and lead workshops this upcoming summer too.

We are doing our best to minimise the participation costs in these times when the price of goods and services have increased. And we are happy to announce that the EUME Headquarters is offering a generous sponsorship of €50 per person. We are very grateful for this support, as an expression of care and encouragement for all Blessed families involved.

Additionally, we would also encourage participants to look for further sponsorship opportunities in their communities to support their travel and/or participation fee.

The following three European summer workshops will take place in 2022:

The ROOTS 22+ workshop is scheduled to take place 20th – 24th July 2022 in Seminarhaus Neumuehle, Bad Camberg, Germany.

The SNR+ workshop is scheduled to take place 11th – 19th August 2022 in Seminarhaus Neumuehle, Bad Camberg, Germany.

The ODP+ workshop is scheduled to take place 20th – 30th August 2022 in Seminarhaus Neumuehle, Bad Camberg, Germany.

Below you can find the description of the registration steps and detailed information about each workshop. If you would like to attend a workshop, please fill out the registration form as soon as possible. It will help us to see the expected number of participants and make preparations accordingly.

Each year, we rely on a large team of volunteers to support each workshop, and we warmly welcome you to contribute and serve this summer too. If you want to apply as staff, please select the ‘staff application form’. The final staff arrangements will be partly determined by the size of the workshops and the number of staff applications, so please do apply, but know that we cannot confirm all staff applications or arrangements until we have a clearer picture of registrations. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

This workshop is designed for the elder HARP age-group as well as for young adults aged 18-20. We want to respond to the wishes of elder brothers and sisters to join this workshop and have therefore adjusted the programme accordingly. Some of the activities will be divided into separate age groups, one group being for 15-17 year olds and the other group for 18-20 year olds. Thus, we can offer relevant care and guidance for everyone.

The workshop is a precious opportunity in the year to reconnect with friends from all over Europe (and beyond), to build new friendships and to gain strength and clarity about our shared identity and path as blessed children. There will be relevant and relatable content to go deeper into what it means to live a daily life of faith, along with discussions and interactive activities. Through the mixture of challenging, reflective and team activities, we want to build an atmosphere where we create wonderful, lasting memories that remind us of our potential and our connection as brothers and sisters. There will also be a variety of education and testimonies given by elder Second Gen and educators to share lessons and perspectives that can strengthen our commitment in living our life as God’s representatives. Come and join us this summer to re-discover and strengthen your conviction towards the spiritual path.

The ODP+ (Original Divine Personality +) workshop is a precious opportunity for those aged 18+ to go through some focused and stimulating spiritual training. The ODP+ workshop has developed year upon year, and has been consistently challenging, as well as rewarding and enjoyable.

Through the content, there is a chance to experience the essence of True Parent’s teachings, and the core aspects of Second Gen education from years of experience. Indeed, the importance of connecting personally to God, True Parents, and other key relationships in our lives is a strong emphasis throughout the programme. As well as the focused education, a lot of the atmosphere that makes this workshop comes from the energy and relationships that participants build in their teams, supported by team challenges, sports and activities. The education will encourage participants to explore their Original Divine Personality together.

This workshop is open to all 18+ who are looking to go deeper and who want to invest in creating an experience that will revitalise you and your spiritual life. Whether you are graduating high school, planning to take a gap-year, studying at university or working, this might be the right choice for you to make a positive change – with an experienced and dedicated staff team to provide personal support and care. The experience cannot be explained easily, but it will be worth the commitment if you are open to make the effort.

Please note that the workshop fulfils one of the educational qualifications (participation in extended education) to attend the Blessing. We are confident that this experience can make a substantial contribution towards preparation for the matching and blessing, and to provide both a detox and recharge for a fresh start.

The ROOTS 22+ workshop will offer a chance for you to take time aside to invest in your spiritual journey; as individuals and as part of our community. Part of the programme will be talks and presentations to stimulate discussion and generate a focused and reflective atmosphere. Alongside this there will also be chances for connecting and enjoying sports, games and nature together, based on the interests of the group.

With the personal challenges that we are facing, as well as wider concerns regarding the future of our universe, we can find ourselves both overwhelmed and unsettled. Every now and then, we need to reconnect to our roots to regain direction and clarity, and a greater sense of hope and purpose. We hope this workshop, together with the investment of all involved, can provide an opportunity for an internal refresh and shift forwards: through Reconnecting, Open hearts and Open conversations, Truth-seeking, and Supporting each other as brothers and sisters.
