Wednesday evenings April/May 2021 £150
14,21,28 April and 5,12,19 May 2021 (Six weeks)
7 – 9.30pm (UK time) – of course you are welcome to attend from anywhere in the world
Plus optional design cafe 9 June 2021 (7 – 9pm) (£10 if booked prior to starting the full course, £20 if booked later). See separate booking.
Each session will be two and a half hours with a group via Zoom*.
The course will be an adapted version of the Think like a Tree programme taking place via Zoom and with home study and outdoor sessions ‘off-line’. There will be breaks during sessions with tasks, so it won’t just be sitting at a computer.
The group size will remain small so you will gain from learning from others, and you’ll have access to a group to interact between sessions.
We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with resilience, longevity and harmony, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives.
By exploring principles derived from nature, this programme will guide you step-by-step through a design cycle that can be used for a wide range of personal circumstances – relationships, health, wellbeing, leisure and work.
You may want to make a significant change, some small improvements, or just want to be more content or effective in your everyday life, and whatever your circumstances this course has something to offer.
The programme comprises six two and a half hour sessions with activities to do at home. During the six week programme you will build up the tools and resources to complete a design that is personal to you after the course. All course materials are provided and you will go away with a toolkit of tools and principles that can be used again and again. The home study is optional but you will get more from the course if you commit to the extra time – approx 2 – 3 hours per week.
The programme is interactive with lots of resources so we recommend you commit time (and head space) to completing the programme.
The Design Cafe follows after the end of the 6 weeks with a chance to – learn about others designs, share your own or seek support with ongoing issues to help you move forwards and gain the most from the programme.
*Zoom is a video platform that is easy to use and we’ll send out more details about how to access the course and use the platform nearer the time.
