Ragmans farm is the perfect setting for our 1 week Wild Therapy immersive training.

How to sit in the belly of the earth and experience its unconditional holding.
Our human place in the community of all things.
Working on the edge between our fear based strategies and our innate wildness open and free.
Connection to ourselves, others and the more than /other than human.
What arises spontaneously around us in response to a particular enquiry with nature.
