Autumn has brought seasonal changes, and we too will become quieter as the Autumn brings cooler weather, the landscape colour changes and leaves are falling. Last weekend we had a really lovely day, blessed with fine weather for the last of this years Wellbeing Workshops. There was much to be grateful for.
Themes of ‘Wellbeing’ were explored and participants had a chance to contemplate on their own individual areas of understanding and growth. All the horses/ponies and Darwin the donkey were amazing and helped hold the space for this day of nurture and healing. The Shepherd’s hut fire was soon lit and keeping us toasty warm for the quiet reflective time and those creative moments when paper and coloured pens come out to help with the processing. The firepit blazed outside for the late morning gathering of ‘letting go of old ways’, with some carefully chosen music holding the space too. After a lunch of soup and rolls and making sure the biscuit tin was crammed full with all the treats you could wish for, we moved into the afternoon of acknowledging new skills and themes for personal development. Over the whole day we had 3 good sessions outside with the ponies and lots of variety with the interaction. Participants were involved with choosing how to make this an unique experiential time for themselves, in a way that gave them authentic experience and insight.
Individual sessions will carry on through the winter so please get in touch if you would like a chat about this.
