The EU is facing  a severe identity crisis that can not be solved only through the economic and political process. It is now the right moment to introduce the “resonance platform” methodology through the third force, the power of culture. Let us consider the power of genius Art creations, emerging over thousands of years from our beautifully diverse and colourful cultural tapestry, defining the pathway towards a “polyphonic” European identity!  Our innovative “resonance platform” will gather the most effective cultural elements to encourage the idealism and enthusiasm so much lacking in the current perception of European potential, exposing the urgency for co-creation of  “polyphonic” identity!  We artists have decades of experience, evidence and knowledge of effectively supporting the leadership transformation in the sphere of economy. Deep power of culture is called upon to give the meaning and direction to the economy and politics!
For more on concept: https://mihavision.com/musical-leadership-strategy-video/

Short Description of the Project:

The “Journey towards polyphonic European identitywill unfold in 3 phases. The first phase will begin on May 2017: Tirana May 2nd, Pristina May 3rd, skopje May 4th, the Castle Borl (Slovenia) May 6/7 and conclusion in Ljubljana on May 9th. The second phase will consist of one  year long “gathering” and connecting cultural substance throughout EU regions and bringing thus the empowering resonance platform to the final stage: May 2nd to the 9th 2018, Podgorica/Cetinje, Sarajevo, Belgrade and finale in Brussels.
In every capital city of the Western Balkans the invitation will be issued by Slovenian Embassy, the EU Delegation and  local partners to ca. 150 participants representing different (especially creative-) aspects of society, who will offer insights for EU. Two main questions will be pursued: firstly, “What kind of EU do we wish to join?”, and secondly, “What is our deepest cultural substance we wish to contribute to the EU identity?” As we know history teaches us: “Innovation often comes unexpected from a periphery”! Therefore the strong message from the Western Balkans as the European periphery will be produced during this project.
Each event will unfold in 3 stages:
1)   Establishing an inspirational “resonance platform” to
2)   Enable participants to generate creative European identity ideas, and
3)   Celebrate unique local contribution for a “Polyphonic European Identity”.

Stage 1: At the beginning of each event, participants will be sitting AMONG the players of the host country’s national symphony orchestra. Miha Pogačnik will create the “resonance platform” with his disruptive methodology, using Beethoven violin concerto. He will simultaneously perform violin solo part, comment and paint the process of the masterpiece on a large canvas. This is a specific interdisciplinary method, where the intense and emotional experience of a musical masterpiece is “transferred” to the societal field, generating new productive solutions for our common ideal of “Europe: Unfinished Masterpiece”, enabling the emergence of new methods and solutions and strengthening the essence of the European idea.
Three movements of the violin concerto will unfold this way: firstly, movement (interdisciplinary process and performance) will create VERY intense experience for participants, therefore they will have debriefing immediately while they are still sitting among musicians. Then there will be the concluding performance of the second and third movement of the concerto. In this methodology, participants are stimulated to offer their profound insights while surrounded by music!  It is truly “out-of-the-box” change of the perspective: creative results guaranteed!!

Stage 2: Orchestra leaves the stage and participants will sit in concentric circles for a moderated “generative” conversation, kind of “open space”. We will encourage cultural ministries in each country to prepare an exhibition of “universally acknowledged genius” representing each country. This exhibition will be surrounding the event, offering stimulation for good results of the open space conversation.

Stage 3: Celebration! Informal dinner/refreshments, conversations and presentation of some of the most autochthonous aspects of local culture and tradition.
All events will be filmed and nationally transmitted, the results will be needed for the continuation of the project till May 2018. In order to reach more people, especially young generation, we will encourage a direct transmission to some public areas easily accessed. The direct participation limitation of 150 is because this is the maximum of people that can sit among and around the 42 musicians of the symphony orchestra.
The idea for the finale in Brussels EU Commission on May 9th 2018: The orchestra will consist of 6 young players from each of 7 countries orchestras involved. The entire project will also support the “2018, European Year of Cultural Heritage”. The whole project is a unique combination of art, creativity, diplomacy and business.

Miha’s Elevator Talk

We are in the elevator and an unknown person, probably an executive in a global brand
company, turns to me and says:

– “Is that a violin in your case? Performing a concert tonight?”

(Here we are: I am pigeonholed: violinist = glorified entertainer!)

– “No. I am on my way to an event to help executives like you find their own solutions for their problems.”

– “With violin??? Serious?”

– “Dead serious. I will help them to listen to the process of a genius masterpiece, get them passionate with out-of-the-box solutions emerging from musical complications and empower their own solution-sparks to jump the line back to their leadership dilemma, surprise, surprise: resolving, implementing.  Creative detour – the fastest road to the goal! With 100% engagement, like true artists, no SMSing during my session! At the end I will perform, and they will hear the performing organisation! And my promise: they will never forget those change messages…”

(we are approaching the ground floor.)

– “But my team does not necessarily like classical music!”

– “Brilliant starting point: Art is not about liking, it is about real change and transformation!”

– “But I am afraid my boss will not like it…!?”

– “Well, then you might better get yet another PowerPoint presentation!”

(Uhhhhhsh, the doors open.)

– “May I have your business card… CIO, Chief INSPIRATION Officer…???!”

– “Yes, you need inspiration if you want your change event to hit the bottom line!”
Gone in the crowd… gone?

Invitation to Terra parzival quest with Miha Pogačnik

Dear Reader,

You may already be familiar with my innovative method from past workshops on Art, Leadership and Business.

Inside Orchestra.png

This time, on July 28th 2019, you are invited to sit amongst the musicians inside the Ptuj Castle and become an integral part of a whole Symphony Orchestra under my own leadership and musical supervision. You will experience how the emotional structure of a musical masterpiece can be transferred into the strategy of managing yourself and your company. 


The Orchestra event from last April was a total success for our Slovenian finest leaders as well as managers of top global companies. We will have reputable guests again and are expecting high-level socializing! The music content although new is a continuation of the April Orchestra. This unique event is part of a four-day questival on the theme « Remember The Future, Terra Parzival Awakening » in the beautiful lands of Slovenia.


The day starts at 9:30 am, in the Palace, with an introductory narrative (Dr. Davorin Peršič) of the Knight Parzival and his life path from ignorance to the highest responsibility when he becomes King of the Holy Grail. The story of this mysterious, highly important European Medieval legend is anchored in the vicinity of Ptuj. I will combine the interdisciplinary impact of Music and other types of Art with the Parzival archetype and use it as our guide for what a leading personality is all about.

The musical process and performance (Johannes Brahms, Violin Concert Op.77) begins at 11 am in the Festival Hall (my method can be found at www.mihavision.com).

At 13:30 pm, we will have a joint debriefing of experiences on the impact of the new « Art & Economy » paradigm followed by a « networking » lunch in the Castle Yard.

As it is summer time, we are also inviting partners with a parallel « Knighthood » program especially prepared for children!

The entire 4-day program can be found in www.terraparzival.net

Looking forward to seeing you in Terra Parzival!

Ptujski grad 28 Julij 2019, 9:30-14:45h

Ta dopoldanski dogodek z orkestrom (v anglescini) je del štiridnevnega questivala Remember The FutureTerra Parzival Awakening”


Morda že poznate mojo inovacijo na področju vodenja (prosim, poglejte spodaj izjave Andreja Božiča in Sonje Šmuc) .

Inside Orchestra.png

28. julija 2019 dopoldne boste imeli priložnost, da na Ptujskem gradu sedite med izvajalci simfoničnega orkestra in pod mojim vodstvom doživite transfer emocionalne strukture glasbene mojstrovine v strategijo vodenja samega sebe in podjetja in tako izkusite mojo inovacijo v živo.



Premiera podobnega dogodka na Ptujskem gradu je bila 6. aprila in Slovenski udelezenci so sedeli v orkestru skupaj z menedžerji tujih globalnih podjetij. Ponovno bomo imeli ugledne goste in pricakujemo druženje na visokem nivoju! Glasbena vsebina nova, nadaljevanje aprilskega dogodka.

Najprej boste ob 9:30h v palaciju (Dr. Davorin Peršič) doživeli uvodno pripoved o vitezu Parzivalu in njegovi življenjske poti iz ignorance do najvišje odgovornosti, ko postane kralj svetega Grala. Ta skrivnostna najpomembnejša evropska srednjeveška legenda je zasidrana v okolici Ptuja.


Poleg meddisciplinarnega vpliva glasbe in drugih zvrsti umetnosti uporabljamo Parzivala kot pravzorec za razvoj vodilne osebnosti.

Glasbeni proces in izvedba (Johannes Brahms, Violinski koncert Op.77) se začne ob 11h v slavnostni dvorani (mojo metodo lahko spoznate na www.mihavision.com).

Ob 13:30 Sledi skupen debriefing doživetja, izmenjava izkušenj o vplivu nove paradigme umetnosti&gospodarstva in “networking” kosilo na grajskem dvorišču.

Ker je to poletni termin vabimo tudi partnerje in za otroke bo pripravljen paralelni “viteški” program!

Andrej Božič:

“Orkester je najstarejši najbolje delujoči vodstveni tim.

Dirigent brez strastnih in tehnično briljantnih glasbenikov ne pomeni nič, brez njega pa je ta kolektiv samo skupek briljantnih posameznikov.

Vsi so enako pomembni, violine se ne prerekajo z violami ali tolkali, samo če vsi delujejo skupaj, ubrano v flowu, je rezultat glasba , ki te ponese , motivira, vzbuja kreativnost, strategijo,…

To se občuti in ne potrebujes biti strokovnjak.

Prav zato je to doživetje z Mihom nekaj enkratnega in je velika lekcija iz vodenja, hkrati pa čisti užitek in dragocena izkušnja drugačnega doživljanja koncerta !”

Sonja Šmuc:

Iskanje svetega grala, ki navdihuje viteza Parzivala, povezanega s Terro Parzival, je hrepenenje človeka, da najde odgovor na večno vprašanje o smislu življenja. Zakaj sem tu? Kako se moji dihi prepletajo z ritmom človeštva?

Miha Pogacnik s svojo virtuozno metodo seciranja clovekovih globin ob zvokih violine in orkestra interpretira svetovne glasbene mojstrovine tako, da slišimo Bacha, Beethovna, Mozarta na nov, meddisciplinaren način  …, in tako odstirajo nepomembno, boleče, skrito v duši in potrkajo na sveti gral, ki ga nosimo v sebi. Potovanje z Miho je raziskovanje, ki pušča sled, tam kjer največ šteje. V nas.

Investicija za program, pripoved, orkester, debriefing in networking kosilo:

€200, z partnerjem €300 , program za otroke po dogovoru.

Če se želite udeležiti celotnega dogodka (28-31.7) € 400

I am standing on the terrace of castle Borl-Ankenstein and looking back on 42 years of the IDRIART movement. Looking back through the memory of the old tower, to the knight Parzival and his time in the 9th century; His response to the call of the Grail.

How does this call resound in the 21st century?  What kind of listening is required to hear it?

We invite you to join to listen and celebrate in TerraParzival, July 27-31, 2019. You will hear the Parzival story told in various authentic locations, in relation to the challenges of our time. Supported by the power of Music-Process and recalibration of World-View. Together we will listen and set the stage for the emerging future!

Often in crisis locations and times, some 200 intercultural IDRIART Festivals proved the power of resonance when music and other Arts became the humanity platform of meetings. Yet this is not enough!

WE all live in an off-balanced „economic society“; for that reason I personally have ventured the last  28 years on a  learning journey with my violin, through the leadership floors of numerous companies and corporations world wide, uncovering the magic  of the formative forces of the arts; de-mixing and re-composing ailing relationships of culture, politics and economics.

What can we learn? How can we in TerraParzival inspire and learn from the centenary celebration of Rudolf Steiner’s Treefold Societal Composition and original Waldorf education principles in July? The Parzival story is one of the curriculum pillars in the 11th grade when young people ripen to reach for their highest ideals!  Where are the profound IDEALS in our digital-permeated society?? My motto is:

NO digitalisation without humanisation!

If you „hear“ this call, please reserve the date, offer suggestions, more details will follow.
