Caledonian Holotropic is offering a low-cost, collaborative 4 night event to fulfil the 1st CPD minimum requirement for facilitators of being a breather twice per year.
This nourishing event will run “certification” style including preparation, session and integration with each of us rotating around a set of roles so that we breathe twice, support the safety of the sessions and the smooth running of the space thereby reducing the cost.
There will also be some optional “activity” space where we are invited to share our passion /expertise with the group and in this way contribute to it being a fresh, alive and unique (learning) experience every time. In the last event this included guided visualisations, meditations, shamanic ritual, philosophical discussion, heartcircle, music sharing. There were other offers that we just didn't have time for such as practical demonstrations on supporting a birth process, internal inquiry using the onsite labyrinth and learning about using Meetup, Mail Chimp and Cognito Forms to support event marketing and administration - maybe on this event?
There are just 14 places per event.
It is being held at Cherry Tree Lodge, a secluded but easy to get to retreat centre set in a stunning landscape. It has a view that nourishes the soul. You will be able to extend your stay either before or after the event to explore the surrounding area. It is just an hour away from Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Highlands. Accommodation is in shared, twin, light and spacious rooms and the food is delicious. All the required equipment and materials are on site for our time together.
You can register for the event here
Looking forward to "being" with you in Bonnie Scotland.
May we be whole, May we be in peace.
