In this paper Cristina Testa, who has been the Workshop director since 2016, and three group conductors of experiential, large and median groups discuss their experience as Workshop staff members. Some members of the Osservatorio board prepared a series of questions exploring what the COIRAG Workshop really was, what its origins were and how it changed in the course of the years. The Workshop director and the group conductors were also asked to describe this pecu-liar training device and to produce an image expressing their feelings both as staff members and as individuals taking part to experiential groups. Since the interview focused on one and the same experience, the interviewees’ answers were somehow similar, yet they also revealed each conductor’s specific, methodological and technical viewpoint.
