Informing each other on the life and the work of the hosts, on details of the meetings and exposure experiences are dealt with in a structured reflection. Firstly, through individual reflection, secondly, by sharing with another visiting EDP participant. Supported by moderators and representatives of the local host partners, the sharing is being carried on in a more focussed manner in medium-sized groups.

There will be work groups dealing with organisational issues or subject matters in order to prepare a thematic dialogue conducted by the overall group. Here, particularly important experiences from the personal meetings are being formulated that have the character of key experiences.

Telling key stories ("story telling") contributes to have the other EDP participants also perceive particularly important and impressive experiences and their paradigmatic character. Following Hans Joas, this is "understand" these stories in connection to the individual value orientation of the EDP participants.
