Event Details


This workshop is postponed to the Fall since it is too close to Agile Coach Camp (which is the following weekend).  If you want to be notifed of the next workshop, please let me know by email: michael.sahota AT


Temenos is an experiential workshop for people interested in personal growth so that they can enjoy authentic connection with others.

The endless curiosity and passion we’re born with gets dampened when we meet the limits of the context we grow up in. This can hurt, and deviate us from our path of growth. Attending a Temenos can help you clarify for yourself:

  • Who you are
  • Who you can and want to be
  • What you want
  • A strategy for your success.

What Happens in a  Temenos Workshop?

Here is an overview diagram of Influence Maps - the main technique that we will be using.

The Temenos worskhop is a safe place where we can be our authentic selves without judgement. We used Influence Maps to explain who we are and allow ourselves to be truly seen as a unique valuable human being. It is through our vulnerability that we are able to create authentic connections with others. See Brene Brown talk on the power of vulnerability

Please refer to these pages for detailed information:

What material will we cover?

The focus of this workshop will be on authentic connection with other human beings in a safe environment. Normally Temenos is run as a full 3 day off-site workshop. In this version we will drop other Temenos modules such as vision and group alignment.


Inspiring, Healing, Present. Michael’s presence facilitates the creation of a strong container to support making the connection from the heart, not the mind. The influence map is a powerful tool for building connection.” – An Agile Coach

Moving, Revealing, Balancing. I found that deep connections to other human beings can be found and made a lot more often than I expected. A safe space was created and held all the way through it.” – Melanie Meinen

Payment Options

There are two payment options:

  • Pay for Value. In this case, I ask you to decide at the end of the workshop how much it was worth to you and pay me accordingly. 
  • Pay for What you can afford. This is intended for people who are between jobs or in a situation where they can't afford to pay. In this case, I ask you to pay what amount you can afford. As with pay for Value, I ask you to determine what you can afford after the workshop.
N.B. In either payment option, I ask you to pay a nominal amount since space is limited and I want to make sure you are committed to coming.

Location and Timing

The event will be held in a private residence. Lunch will be provided on both days. The workshop times are:

Saturday 8:30am Registration with 9:00am start to 5:00pm

Sunday 9:30am start to 4:00pm

Origins of Temenos

Temenos is the name of a special kind of experiential laboratory (usually delivered as a weekend lab) that Siraj Sirajuddin has invented and evolved over many years integrating diverse influences such as Buddhist, Islamic, Jesuit and Hindu spirituality, mythology and Jungian psychology. He’s been using these labs to support lean and agile transformations in his practice as an Organisational Transformation Mentor.
