The format for the 2021/22 training has been re developed to allow the group to form a relationship and fully find our ground at Middlewood Trust, in the remote Roeburndale Valley, Lancashire. This will be our home base for each residential, apart from the penultimate weekend in a city, returning back to Middlewood Trust for our final residential gathering, coming full circle to integrate the year’s journey.
As the human world wakes up to our relationship with nature, and therapists of many kinds become aware of the crucial connections and disconnections between therapists, clients and nature, this training offers you the opportunity to re-connect with the natural world and to re-wild your practice. To immerse yourself in nature both outdoors and indoors, in mind and body, in the connections you experience in community, in yourself and with your clients.
• Working out of doors we’ll allow ourselves to encounter and work with the other-than-human and the more-than-human – animals, birds, plants, spirits, hills, trees, rivers, lights, winds, dreams, ghosts; and bring them into the therapeutic process. We’ll be exploring solo, in twos and threes and in the whole group.
• Creating Community through living, working, eating and playing together with each other and with our natural companions, we may soften from our human-centric view and deepen into sensing the value of all that lives. Connecting with these qualities within and between ourselves, we’ll explore and discover how this may change and broaden our therapeutic work.
• An exploration and celebration of therapy’s wildness – its capacity to transcend the limitations we place on our creativity and connectedness. We’ll work on the edge between fear-based strategies and opening to our own wildness, welcoming spontaneity and the unknown as we notice and trust what arises.
• The practical magic of feeling into the innate wisdom of our interconnected wild nature, embodying this and bringing it into our therapeutic and personal relationships.
