Wild therapy 1-week immersive training
This week-long immersive wild therapy training takes therapy outside, reconnects us to the wisdom of the wildness around us. It's an ideal platform for psychotherapists wanting to work outdoors, or any group leader wanting to engage more with the wild. We will be working outdoors as a group in pairs and by ourselves, including a day solo. There will also be space to explore and support our emotional responses to the ecological crisis unfolding around us.
Ragmans Lane farm provides us with the perfect setting for our one-week immersive wild therapy training. With 60 acres of beautifully managed organic farmland, nestled within the Forest of Dean, it sits on the edge between wildness and domesticity. This is the edge we will be exploring within ourselves, dancing between our defensive strategies and our innate wildness, expressive and free.
We will be exploring:
- How to sit in the belly of the earth and directly experience its unconditional holding.
- Our human place in the community of all things.
- Working on the edge between fear-based strategies and opening to our embodied wildness.
- Connection to ourselves, others, and the more than/other than human.
- What spontaneously arises in and around us in response to an enquiry with nature.
- Feel into and be with the pertinent, magical, and innate wisdom of our wild community.
This might be a journey for you as a therapist wishing to bring more wildness into your work or it might be a personal journey of experiencing more wildness in your life, or both. Whatever your intentions, you are welcome to join us in the stunning setting of Ragmans Farm, with woodland, orchards, wildlife pond, hot tub, yurt, and outdoor fire. The accommodation is extremely comfortable with facilities to work, cook, and eat as a community. There is also room for camping for those that wish to sleep and dream with the Earth.
Cost: £800 including accommodation and all meals.
