About the Event
This course is designed for people who want to begin or enhance their work with people in nature.
You may be, amongst other things, a counsellor, wellbeing practitioner, therapist, teacher, activist, stepping into a new career, starting out in life, a social worker, childcare worker, personally wanting to develop your nature practice etc. However, you will be very curious about our human-nature reciprocal relationship and so be interested in how this co-creates our Health and Wellbeing; Healing, Learning and Growth; Deepest Meaning and Purpose.
This course will introduce you to the three realms of practice and you will learn skills, theories, practices applicable immediately. You will also have time in nature for your personal health, wellbeing, and development.
The courses cover each of the three realms of practice:
Day 1 Nature, Health and Wellbeing
Day 2 Ecotherapy/Wholeness, Healing and Growth
Day 3 Deeper Nature/Spiritual Ecology
All 3 days concurrently (with camping option).
You can complete the Threshold course over these three days and are able to camp at the Hearth and enjoy the beautiful landscape and semi-wilded spaces.
The fee is £245 with camping
