The ASD is not based in one physical location. It exists through individual members, applicants and guests who, once a year gather for a five day conference. The conferences are held in inspirational locations all over the world. During the conference participants aim to inspire each other and deepen the foundations of the work. A facilitating group (consisting of four members) has the role to prepare these conferences, together with a local host group.
The ASD provides the opportunity to work on personal development through dialogue, research in action, practical and physical exercises and networking with peers. Each year the facilitating group designs a conference theme fitting with the current worldly topics and findings in the field. For its members' the ASD is an important platform to share and collaborate on hypotheses and new findings to help with personal development and to assist others in their development too.
