Hosted by the Rosen Institute & the Rosen Metod Centar BiH
The Rosen Institute and the Rosen Metod Centar BiH are happy to invite you to Sarajevo for the next Rosen Method Global Congress. The Rosen Method community in the Balkan region has grown steadily with enthusiasm over the last 17 years. They are excited to share their city, cultures and dedication to the Rosen Method with the rest of the world. The congress will follow a 1-day Leaders Conference (October 4) and a 2-day Teachers Intensive (October 2 &3). The program has been created this way to make it as efficient as possible for travel from other continents.
Rosen Method in Sarajevo
In 2005, the Rosen Method came to Sarajevo with the first intensive held by Senior Teachers Annika Minnbergh and Yrsa Kjerrgren from Sweden. They were supported locally by two very engaged Balkan practitioner, Vehbija Peksin and Workshop teacher, Branko Nikolic. They were later joined by Certified Teacher Lotta Johansson and more recently, Senior Teacher Maud Guettler. This wonderful teaching team has been integral to the growth of the training and they have diligently supported the RM community in the Balkan region.
