Walking with the Ancestors
Explore how your beliefs can affect your experience
A half-day experiential workshop in the woods
2018 Date tbc - Stanmer Park, E Sussex
What would happen if you thought like the people who lived in Sussex thousands of years ago?
The Celts, Vikings, and Anglo-Saxons saw omens and meaning in the landscape, and in, well... everything.
From birds and animals that crossed their path, to thunderstorms, to rainbows, to the patterns in clouds and shapes in the landscape, all of these things connected them into a dynamic web of meaning, activity, and connectivity that they saw themselves as deeply participating in.
Nothing was without significance.
Were they right? Who knows. But what is interesting is what did they experience because of those beliefs?
What would happen if we thought like our ancient British ancestors?
Would we start to notice things that we're currently unaware of? Would nature be able to speak to us in ways that she can't with our current scientific, rational way of thinking?
And what could it tell us about the way we are today?
And don't worry you can have all your old beliefs back at the end of the workshop if you want them.
On this nature-connected workshop, you will:
• Learn what Anglo-Saxons used to believe
• Using NLP based techniques and story-telling to temporarily adopt this ancient belief system
• Adventure into the landscape with these new found beliefs and explore how the world appears to you, and what you learn
• Discover more about yourself and the world around you
• Come back and share what you learned
The cost of this workshop is £35/person.
(Limited to a max of 15 places. RSVP essential as we need to know numbers, thanks.)
Suitable for beginners and those with experience.
• Wear suitable clothing.
• Suitable for adults only
We'll be led by Alistair Duncan who has a keen interest in our psychological and sensory connection to the land and has lived all his life in Brighton between the Downs and the sea.
