About this Event

This course is intended to provide participants with the practical skills required to incorporate the ancient global symbolism of labyrinths into their current practice.

It is ideal for those working with people experiencing mental distress or who are in recovery, or for practitioners in therapeutic professions who wish to expand their practice. Counsellors, psychotherapists, educators, play therapists, work places, schools, community groups and voluntary organisations will also benefit from having a trained Labyrinth Leader.

The course is run over three days in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Isle of Wight. We will be using our own labyrinth as pictured here but also creating labyrinths in the woodlands, on a beach and in clay.

Day 1 covers the history of labyrinths, how to create a labyrinth using nature based materials, an introduction to holding space and ethical considerations such as risk management and safeguarding.

Day 2 introduces you to the model of walking the labyrinth used by Nature Therapy CIC. This includes stages of the labyrinth journey, hard observation, holding up the mirror, and 'how you do something is how you do everything'.

Day 3 explores how you can build labyrinths into your own practice. The workshop concludes with some of the practicalities required when creating an event such as insurance and risk management.

Nature Therapy Walking the Labyrinth training is a non-denominational model that incorporates an eclectic approach to reducing stress and anxiety, self healing and spiritual development.

Two follow up support sessions of 20 minutes each by Skype or telephone are included.

You will receive a Nature Therapy CIC Certificate of Completion and a nationally accredited Leadership Award from Sports Leaders UK.

Lunch is not included. Refreshments such as tea and coffee will be available.

Please be aware the majority of the course takes place in outdoor environments such as the beach, grassland and in woodland so please dress accordingly.

Any questions please email Dr Kim Brown on wolfmedicine@icloud.com or visit our website www.naturetherapycic.com where you will find details of travel and accommodation.
