Description:                                                                                     The natural world has a profound capacity to resonate with human feeling states, both energetically and through symbolism such as the Seasons, growth & decay, night & day. Tuning-in to this can help us tune-in to ourselves. The three days offered here give opportunity to explore this theme during full summer or as we move into autumn. The aim of these days is to enable you to explore individually and as a group, what it means to encounter Nature in an intentional, contemplative way and how that may nourish, challenge and renew us at emotional & psychological as well as physical levels. Each day will be experientially focused, comprising facilitated time outside in the beautiful natural landscapes offered by both venues, as well as time to reflect and discuss indoors. Each day can stand alone, but the Oct. 1st day will develop the theoretical aspects of the topic further.

These days are suitable for anyone interested in exploring this theme for their own personal wellbeing, as well as more particularly for counsellors, psychotherapists or related practitioners who wish to explore the place of this with their own clients.
