Two weekend workshops at Hazel Hill Wood
with Caroline Hukins and Daniel Koerner will support your quest to make a difference:
REALISING YOUR VISION, 6-8 June 2018
SUSTAINING THE JOURNEY, 17-19 October 2018
Our vision is to grow a community of change makers that support each other’s journeys, come together at different times of the year, celebrate the path and find nourishment as community and in solitude at the wood. We invite you to become a part of this vision…
THE PIONEERS OF CHANGE PROGRAMME IS AN INVITATION TO:
LIVING THE CHANGE
Whether you attend just one or both workshops, this powerful two-part programme will take you on a journey of deep personal exploration, supporting you to develop and implement the change you want to make in the world. Whether you’re starting out on your changemaker journey, or are already on this path and are looking for fresh inspiration, our workshops will support your shift from bright ideas to effective implementation. Developing your internal resources, skills, knowledge and connections, we’ll guide you to translate your passion and vision into sound, sustainable projects.
Collectively building a powerful support community during the workshops, we’ll enable you to better sustain yourself in your work, and to support others in the same way. You will leave with a peer group who both deeply understand the nature of your journey, and are committed to supporting you on it. Being in community in the woodland with others on a similar path, you’ll discover new inspiration and insights for your projects, recharge your batteries and find healthier ways to relate to yourself, your colleagues, and to your dreams and ideas for the change you aspire to make in the world.
KEEPING THE FIRE BURNING
This programme offers the rare chance to pause and consciously reflect as you explore the trials and tribulations of being a changemaker with others on the journey. Supported by the group, you will have the chance to connect deeply with your inner truth and passion, and to learn nature-based resilience skills for individual and collective use to nourish and sustain you, so you can keep the fire burning without getting burnt out.
