September 1 – 3 Hazel Hill Wood, near Salisbury
led by Alan Heeks and David Owen


This workshop explores how men can combine the best of masculine qualities like clarity and drive with feminine gifts like receptiveness and nurturing. We’ll consider how men can connect with their power, with sensitivity and passion, getting beyond typical hierarchy and patriarchy, integrating emotional and creative intelligence with intellectual and practical skills. We’ll use innovative models around human health and natural ecosystems, probing resistance to change, and exploring ways to compost negative feelings and cultivate a values-based organisation.

The sheer uncertainty and complexity of these times means that old command-and-control approaches are struggling and need to change. This group offers a supportive space for men to develop their capacity to lead and manage at work. The facilitators are experienced in mens work, leadership and coaching and training individuals and groups in these topics.


This event is organized by Wisdom Tree, a small team helping individuals, organisations and communities
with skills for resilience and wellbeing.
