Thriving in Tribe | Heart iQ Circle Retreat
Weekend Gathering
Advanced Deep Dive

"All wounds are borne in connection, and it's through connection they heal. We cannot face our pain alone; it's time to do our healing in tribe."

Dear Tribe,

Step into a transformative journey of self-discovery, unity, and collective growth at the  Thriving in Tribe Weekend Gathering. Experience the nourishing and healing impact of spending quality time in circle, combined with time in an emergent collective space of tribal togetherness. It's like nothing you've experienced before.

The focus of the Heart iQ circle journey we will embark on is to get you into your body while simultaneously tapping into a higher state of consciousness by leveraging the power of the amplified field, generated by everyone attending.

The amplified space we co-create in mindful awareness and embodied presence is a brave space for those ready to connect more deeply to the mysterious potential of healing that is possible in emergent group fields.

This space is mostly unknown, we have no idea what will happen between us. And that’s exactly the place where we want to hang out… in this liminal space anything is possible as we set and hold a remarkably potent container where literally anything can happen.

We will travel through lifetimesother worlds and realities, all in a ritualized space perfectly designed for the emergence of what wants to happen through and between us. It is a transformational multi-dimensional experience unlike any circle you have sat in before.

The work that we do is experiential and on one hand challenging and on another, deeply relaxing and nourishing. This is about getting in your body and connecting to who you really are and bringing forth your authentic expression.

We're here not to play around on the surface, but get to the depths of who you are, what your life is about and what's holding you back from your full expression and leadership. Be prepared to go on a journey of personal exploration, shedding what's ready to dissolve and receive a sacred imprint of what it means to be a conscious, heart connected and fully-alive human.

A big part of the retreat is to experience a 'homecoming' and to remember the nourishing and supportive feeling of being part of a tribe  who can feel you in ways you may not even be able to feel yourself. You may not realise it yet, but having tribe in your life is not just a luxury, but an essential ingredient for successfully navigating your life and relationships.

Connected to this idea is what we call 'Tribal Regulation'. This is where a tribe can support you in regulating your nervous system and come to rest. It's highly likely that you carry stress and burden in your nervous system as you attempt to meet life alone. In order to meet life fully, it will be critical to recharge, recover and get nourished - and there's something tribe can provide you that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

How Does it Work? 

Heart iQ Circle Work is what is called a "Transformational Technology". 

It's not about fixing your dysfunction or about focusing on your problems. 

It's an upgrade. 

What if what you think is broken and problematic, is actually you not having an 'imprint' of a healthy way of being? 

What if you were never given the imprint of what it means to be a man, a lover, a parent, an elder, or a leader?

What if you were never given a model of what life COULD be? What if, instead of being blessed with healthy imprints of what you can be, you were given a limited, conditioned and restricted version of what's truly possible?

Heart iQ is the transformational technology that offers you DIRECT, in-the-body imprints of upgraded ways of being, without needing to focus on your past or on your issues. 

Heart iQ Circle provides a roadmap to experience what we call, "The New Normal"

Watch this video (filmed at a previous Accelerated Awakening retreat) to discover more about Heart iQ Circle and the Sacred Imprinting work we do, and why being in a group, working with the amplified field, provides access to upgraded ways of being that are impossible to access on your own or 1-2-1. 


Meet the Facilitator


Christian Pankhurst is a world leading expert in group dynamics, conscious communication, and the art of circle facilitation. Christian is a master conductor of the collective wisdom that emerges when resonant hearts come together, and his piercing clarity lovingly cuts through bullshit while he holds a space of unconditional love for what wants to emerge in the now.

Christian teaches how to tap into the power of the collective wisdom or 'field' so facilitators learn how to heal themselves and others simultaneously through a process that is embodied and joyful rather than heady and focused on solving problems. 

Christian's unique capacity to translate  complex group dynamics into simple, clear and practical insights is the reason why so many seek him out to get trained in the art of small and large group facilitation.

Christian started facilitating groups in 2002 after graduating as a Chiropractor from the AECC in the U.K. His speciality is using a group’s wisdom and energy to open up gateways of transformation that are simply not available in an individual or one-on-one practice. 

In 2008, Christian entered and won the Britain's Next Top Coach Competition, receiving 52% of the votes from over 90 countries around the world. He is the best-selling author of Insights To Intimacy - Why Relationships Fail and How To Make Them Work, and is the co-founder of New Eden, a centre for those wishing to grow, co-create and awaken together in community.

In 2017, Christian spent 2 years in the Embodied Man Leadership training with John Wineland and it was at this time that he started creating his own flavour of men's work, offering deep dive retreats at New Eden.

Where Do We Gather?

The Thriving in Tribe Weekend Gathering (except the one in Switzerland) takes place at New Eden, our own dedicated venue located in the Heart of Friesland, Netherlands, surrounded by 50 acres of beautiful forest and nature. It is completely private and is gloriously free from the noise and distractions of modern life.

Staying at New Eden is like stepping into a different reality of wonder and magic. We go to great lengths to create a strong and loving container for you to stretch into the best version of yourself while creating a culture of acceptance, authenticity, depth of practice, mastery and heart-centered living. This is a space where you can thrive!


Imagine for a moment, visiting a place out of time, a place where time stands still. A lush oasis and sanctuary for your soul, where you get to be seen and felt in all your glory. A place where you get to show up exactly as you are. A place where you get to be the real you.

New Eden is that place. New Eden is a beautiful, nourishing, healing space where you get to truly drop into your authentic self, rest and receive. Filled up from the inside, you get to shine your light into the world and expand your range beyond what you previously thought possible.

New Eden is a place that has the feeling of coming home. It's a place where people arrive as strangers and leave as lifelong friends. Experiential and purposefully curated with connection in mind, the weekend gathering at New Eden will leave you re-connected to yourself, others and the world.
