Next Workshop: Saturday 15th September 2018

Theory and skills of using a sand tray

The workshop will be held in a Yurt in the Kent countryside.

A traditional yurt (from the Turkish language) is a portable, round tent covered with skins or felt and used as a dwelling by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.

“For nomads, very simply, there exists the everyday necessity of living in harmony with nature, otherwise they can’t survive – and this situation never changes.”

Workshops and Training for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Workshops and training sessions are held on a wide range of topics throughout the year. The day is created firstly to learn and develop new skills and theories whilst also taking time out in our busy lives.

The aim of the workshop is to feel supported and nurtured by the environment, others in the group, and to explore working with the creative arts. We use the time available to “recharge our batteries” before returning to our busy working lives.

“Thank you, I have learnt a lot and now feel supported by the skills I have learnt”

“The day was fun, uplifting and I left feeling nourished and lighter”

“The food and location was amazing, a relaxing and nurturing atmosphere, please let me know when you are running the next training course”
