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 meeting of all attendees. The Congress is always a unique opportunity for Rosen Method professionals to gather, meet new and old friends, share ideas, collaborate, and celebrate the 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 and Leaders Meeting was held in Tallinn, Estonia in November, 2017. This event was organized by the Rosen Method School Finland and the Rosen Institute. The 5-day event was full of connection, collaboration and learning. Summaries of the keynote speeches can be found in our library.
The previous 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.
2020 Global Congress – Postponed
Due to the current COVID-19 crisis and the general uncertainty, both social and economic, that most countries are facing, it has been decided by the Global Congress Organizing Committee to postpone the Global Congress until 2021.
We are saddened to take this action but feel that in order to ensure that people are financially able to attend and comfortable with travel we must give more time for recovery and a return to normal routines.
We know that when the current crisis ends, and it will end, there will be a great need for touch and connection again. The Rosen Institute will continue to support all Rosen professionals so we weather this storm and continue working to ensure that when we do come together next year, it will be a wonderful reunion of friends and colleagues!
