Apprenticing offers an opportunity to learn both didactically and experientially. The apprentice-mentor model offers rare and necessary hands-on experience and the backing to grow without undue pressure to perform.
Together we identify your growth edges and design a personalized program that allows you to play and progress at your own pace. This method ensures the incremental building and strengthening of both observation and intervention capabilities.
Co-leading ongoing groups and periodic wilderness retreats supports you to deepen your understanding of group dynamics, cultivate essential facilitation skills and develop your ‘self’ as leader.
Wild at the Roots training offers an immersion program of intensified study with a small group of aspiring group facilitators. Didactic and experiential components are woven together with inquiry and group dialogue to construct a rich and varied alchemical environment.
Drawing upon observations, common sense, intuition and creative inspiration, trainees will participate in as well as study the dynamics of the training group itself. Co-leading assignments ensure diverse learning experiences both within the group and as rotating leaders of a separate group formed for purposes of the training.
--These programs are relevant for professional therapists, group leaders, somatic educators and individuals interested in furthering their leadership skills.
