Rosen Institute

Global Congress

The Global Congress is an international gathering of the worldwide Rosen community of interest. Typically, the week-long conference begins with a leaders’ discussion, followed by the full meeting of all attendees. The Congress is always a unique opportunity for Rosen workers to gather, meet new and old friends, share ideas, collaborate on new projects, and celebrate our practice of this wonderful modality.


The first Global Congress was held in Germany in 2004 on the occasion of founder Marion Rosen’s 90th birthday. The ones that followed took place in Finland in 2006, New York in 2008, United Kingdom in 2010, and Sweden in 2012.

The most recent Global Congress, held in 2014, was hosted by the Rosen Method Institute Canada in the resort town of Whistler, Canada.  The Congress was shaped by its engaging theme ‘Embracing Our Roots, Growing Our Work, and Stepping Out’. Rosen Method students, interns, practitioners, movement teachers, teacher trainers, Rosen Institute Board members, and school and training center principals from 14 countries gathered and collaborated at this wonderful event.
