This 1-day experiential program addresses the deficits in wholeness related to our narrow information and skill-based education and training. This day-long program allows for an experiential exploration of our human psyches as unique expressions of the universal forces and patterns of wilderness and nature. Our “wilder” minds possess astonishing resources, untapped potentials, and depths that we might not even know exist until we discover how to access them, cultivate their powers, and eventually integrate them into our everyday lives. In this intensive, we’ll access these depths and potentials — which we call the four facets of the Self, or the four dimensions of our wilder human wholeness.
We will, specifically, explore, discover, and consciously cultivate the following:
- the Nurturing, Generative Physician who embodies deep heart-centered thinking and leads us to our deepest Healing, Teaching, Leading, and Mentoring
- the Emotionally and Bodily Connected Healer who embodies mature and embodied emotionality.
- the Present-Centered Innocent & Wise Healer whose gifts of full-presence sensing allow us to become wise, clear-minded, and light-hearted so we can see the big picture and embrace paradox.
- the Deeply Imaginative and Inspired Healer whose gifts are the imaginative, idealistic, visionary, who can bring forth the never before seen, clearly something needed in our age.
We will participate in practices and guidelines for cultivating relationships between the Self and the earth.
We’ll explore the landscape of the psyche through a variety of practices, including creative expression, self-designed ceremony, solo exercises while wandering on the land, group work, movement, voice dialogue, journaling, and deep imagery work.
We will be employing the Nature-Based Map of the Psyche adapted for the Healthcare Practitioner.
