Seeking Health in an Ailing World

You may recall that our Friend and colleague Mary-Jayne Rust ran a successful workshop for the Foundation in June 2007 - The Power of Wild Places. Mary-Jayne has brought us advanced news of a new residential workshop that she will be running in June 2008:

Seeking Health in an Ailing World:
Therapy with the Earth in Mind

Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd June 2008

A weekend residential workshop in North Norfolk for therapists who wish to
explore ecopsychology in practice.

Therapy is an intensely personal process. Yet our well-being, as well as our suffering, is bound up with the whole web of life. Climate change and a litany of environmental crises come right into our bodies and psyches; in turn, our choices about everything we buy and use affect the lives of others. Spending time in wild places, or simply in our back gardens, can be deeply healing, bringing us back to the ground of our being.

Using experiential exercises, reflection and discussion, indoors and outdoors, this week-end will be a chance to explore areas such as: attachment and bonding with the other-than-human world; our response to increasing trauma in the world; environmental concern as part of recovery ecologically based spirituality as ever day practice. There will be ample opportunity to discuss how these issues come into our therapy practice and how me might respond.

Mary-Jayne Rust is a Jungian analyst, art therapist and ecopsychologist practicing in London.

£225 including accommodation and meals. 9 spaces available.
Deadline for bookings 30th April 2008.
