Nature wisdom & contemporary shamanism for coaches
April 4 - April 5
The belief that everything is energy, that nature is animated, is the foundation of old and new Earthwisdom traditions. We can communicate with nature because we are part of it. These principles and practices exist around the globe since thousands of years, and are alive and re-explored by many today.
The ‘contemporary shaman’ brings back balance and marks transformations in people ’s lives through ceremonies, healing practices & trance journeys. As an EarthKeeper, she or he is deeply connected with Mother Earth and is at service of the planet and the future generations.
- personal coaches,
- process facilitators,
- team- and organisation coaches,
- and by extension everybody who wants to explore the wealth of nature wisdom and shamanism and integrate these in their daily lives of work, family and community.
The training will be held in English and/or Dutch depending on the participants who have registered. The size of the group is between 8-18 participants. Depending on the size of the group, 1 or 2 coaches will be leading the training.
As a coach we often guide people through both individual as wel as collective transformations. During transformations, we are asked to leave something behind, to unravel, to heal, to make place for something new. In shamanic practice, the medicine wheel (the 4 directions, wheel of the year) is an important tool for healing and transformation. The medicine wheel is based on the transformations in nature, visible through the seasons, the cycle of the sun, the cycle of life and in every creative process.
The trance journey is a very natural and powerful tool to bring information from the ‘field’, the subconscious, through archetypes and symbols. The trance journey is similar to a guided mediation and sharpens the imagination, the inner senses and intuition.
The Talking Circle is a way of speaking and listening familiar to indigenous people, it creates sacred space, brings peace, deepening and connection in working with groups and teams.
Earth wisdom & shamanic practices are experience-based, embodied, connected with nature. They give energy during difficult personal processes, nature is actively contributing to the process. These practices can easily be integrated in the methodes you apply in your work as a coach or process facilitator, like constellations, nature coaching, Theory U, Active Hope, vision/mission work, circle work, brainstorming, corporate rituals, etc…
You will be able to apply what you will learn in this 2-day training in your practice as a coach and process facilitator. On top of that, you will grow as a person and learn tools for your daily life.
