This 2 day, (non-residential) interactive and experiential “retreat” for practitioners, is an opportunity to experiment with stories, dreams and creativity to discover ways to enrich and nurture your inner world, and develop resources and resilience for your work with others. My focus will be to facilitate your journey with yourself over the two days, and to provide a safe, restorative space, where you can take your own process at your own speed.
Taking my lifelong interests in story, spirituality and creativity, and integrating these with principles from psychotherapy, I will share methods I use personally and professionally for exploring our inner world and reclaiming resources that may have been lost. Some of these are practices I have developed over the past 25 years, others are methods I have been taught, in particular through intensive training with Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes, (author of “Women Who Run With The Wolves, Jungian analyst and storyteller).
There will be some teaching of key principles and underlying theory, and the majority of our time together will be spent “learning through doing”, using participants’ dreams, favourite stories and classic fairy tales. There will also be guided reflective space to enable participants to process and integrate their experiences in contact with nature, in the peaceful garden surroundings of the Salisbury Centre.
Participants will need to bring
