Immerse yourself in vibrant connection to nature as part of our nurturing village. Experience life as your heart wants it to be, full of music, laughter, community and meaning. Weave this into all aspects of your life, community and projects and feel yourself flourish.
The Art of Mentoring is a multi-generational experience for anyone who wants a deeper connection to self, nature and others. It is great for trainers from diverse fields seeking to connect others to nature. In this week long residential camp you will receive an experiential introduction to the ‘8 Shields’ nature-based map for healthy culture, team building and learning. There are adult and youth programmes running concurrently, to offer an inter-generational mentoring experience.
“I expected to learn practical exercises I could pass on, instead I got a whole map of transformation” Dr. Adrian Harris, Eco-Psychologist
This experience draws on a combination of approaches from modern education, indigenous wisdom, and principles observed in nature. It will awaken new possibilities and provide clear specific ways of working.
“The AoM model of life, nature connection and cultural repair works in a kind of unpredictable, organic way, creatively responsive to the totality of the participants – who all have a role in making the week-long course/camp both unique to that created ‘village’ and who also experience the result of careful planning and leadership.”
