...at the summer’s end, this ecopsychology workshop will explore apparent polarities such as: wildness and tameness, stillness and activity, self and other, inner and outer, dreaming body and thinking body. We will have the chance to take stock as the days shorten, and we turn towards autumn—noticing how we are and where we are. There will be the chance to work alone, in pairs, and in the circle, both indoors (in Ragman’s converted mushroom shed) and outdoors, appreciating the elements and other-than-human life in the valley around us. We will celebrate the wildness in seed, in bud, or in its fullness which we find in ourselves, our work, and in witnessing each other, as well as absorbing our experiences in meditation. We shall be working at the interface of Wild therapy and Buddhist practice-although you need neither be a therapist or a Buddhist to come along!

About Kamalamani: I work as an Embodied-Relational therapist, facilitator, and supervisor. 10 years ago I was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order, and I value combining age-old Buddhist practices with more recent ones. I am the author of two books ‘Meditating with character’ and ‘Other than Mother: Choosing childlessness with life in mind’. I love roaming the coast, the common and woodland and working at our allotment. For more information about me and my work please visit: www.kamalamani.co.uk
