Natural Change Courses
Introduction to Facilitating Natural Change (seven-days)
This course is residential and is held in Knoydart, on the west coast of Scotland. It introduces the basic principles and practice of the Natural Change approach, and acts as a foundation for further training.
Natural Change Facilitator Training (three-years, part-time)
The first two years of this training comprises eight long-weekend wilderness residentials in the UK, with regular mentoring sessions, supported study and personal practice throughout. The third year involves a supervised professional project, which provides a chance to integrate what has been learned.
Wild Mindfulness (five-days)
This course is run in a retreat style, and offers the chance to explore mindfulness practice outdoors in one of the remotest parts of Scotland. It provides an opportunity to explore how these wild experiences of meditation might inform the way we respond to current ecological crises.
Natural Change Gathering (four-days) ALUMNI ONLY
Regular gatherings of past-participants which provide ongoing support and the opportunity to deepen personal practice.
Courses at Schumacher College
We’re all indigenous to somewhere. We’re all connected to the land and place we inhabit, to our ecological family, as well as to our human family and ancestors.
Through teachings, experiential practices, stories, sharing and listening we will explore our own indigeny – wherever we are ‘from’ and whatever that turns out to be. We will journey in the land local to the college, on Dartmoor or by the sea. And we will journey in our personal, collective and ecological imaginations.
