The training will invite us to explore the relationship to ourselves and the world around us by working on the four levels of awareness – emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual. Nature will be our support and guide.
For whom? The training is open to participants around the world, who would like to: Explore and nurture their deep connection with themselves and everything that surrounds them, Get to know various nature-based approaches to support the personal and group processes, Learn about the Four winds methodology and symbolism, Participate in an embodied and experiential methodology process, Share their story and experience. Programme Through a 5 day training we will be experimenting with the four levels and their symbolism (water, earth, fire, air; spiritual, physical, cognitive, emotional; winter, autumn, spring, summer; …). We will be connecting with each of the four levels through different channels/methods – music, dance, theatre, gardening, nonviolent communication, medicine walks, …. The process and reflection will be supported by the coaching and art of hosting methodologies. The main aim is to build connection and appreciation with everything around us, learn to live together and then, with the support of a forest medicine walk, seek guidance in nature for a future which can support us in carrying the burden for a better tomorrow, for everyone. We will cocreate the training with guest trainers, who are experts in different methodologies (embodied dance, nonviolent communication, theatre…). The story behind this training The Four winds project represents the combination of experiential, non-formal, embodied, peer-to-peer trainings in the natural environment, which is a result of 5-years of work, experimenting with various nature-based approaches; and creation of cards with diverse activities.  (the participants will receive a set of cards on the training). In the next days, we will share a link to the blog post, which tells the story behind more in depth. *This training programme has been produced with the financial assistance of the European Union.
