I just put Different. Escaping the Competitive Herd by Youngme Moon and The Rational Optimist. How Prosperity Evolves by Matt Riley on the pile to be taken with to Passugg. I'm very much looking forward to see/get introduced to your inspiring books - maybe even through the excellent BookNight idea of Anton??? :)

Hi Sussan
I read about your accomodation problems in Biasca. There is a camping in Claro. I don't know how far away it is from Biasca, but I think it is not so far. I will send you a link with the address. You also can find more information about Biasca and a list of hotels in Biasca (you might already have the list).

I am not sure if you will find a walking map at the tourist office in Chur. As I am living in Chur I can go and ask for you if you tell me more details about what you are looking for. Just let me know!
I am looking forward to getting to know you all!

FROM BERT via Mobilephone:
"Dear All, I just saw your message on my black-berry (still holiday-time for us)
I've got with me some DVD's from Mathias Varga's work. I recently did some training with him: very interesting and I think a nice idea to look at it with some "lovers" at the summer retreat. See you within some days: Bert ((from his dry camper in wet Switzerland))

Thank you so much for useful information Katalin and Stephanie!
We have already found a camping in Bellinzona and are planning to walk the first day (sunday) to Biasca there we have a problem with accomodation. No camping, we don't know if we are allowd to put our tent up and the hotel i full booked. But I think it will be solved!

Hi all, I'm looking forward to our retreat. I will bring my video equipment and the software I got through Janet Bavelas for micro analysis of coaching conversations. I will also bring my collection of BFTC DVD's and my video recordings of a seminar with Nora Bateson and Betty-Alice Erickson. See you soon.

Hello everyone,
I'm really excited and so much looking forward to meeting all of you - those whom I already know and those whom I meet for the first time.
I'm sure we are going to have excellent days together with plenty of time to exchange ideas, questions, answers. I would love to learn more about improvisation and I also like Eniko's idea of investigating the relation between Flow and SF as well as watching some videos of Steve and Insoo together. I appreciate the idea of having a few topics "planned" and lots of time and space for the emerging ideas - because there will be such a lot of positive energy.
I'll bring my jogging shoes and nordic-walking-equipment as well as my "flying carpet" (my yoga blanket) ... for those who would like to do a combination of sports and yoga/Pilates in the morning. And I'll bring my solution diary and my oil pastels - maybe I find someone who loves painting as well.
See you soon, Julia

p.s. camping is not allowed everywhere as it is in Sweden. You would have to ask farmers if you may camp on their land.

Hi Sussan,
I read your questions about taking along a tent on your trail. I checked and saw that on the southern side of st. Gotthard, there are no official campsites on the Strada Alta and also on the northern side you will only find some when you're out of the mountains. I can send you a list of other possibilities like private rooms or mountain huts etc. if you haven't found that list already. Just write me an email and then I send it to you. I will only be visiting you all for a day or so next week and I am already looking forward to meeting you!
greets Stephanie

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
