"Sacred Landscape with Nature as Inspiration and Partner"
A Year’s Immersion in Nature and the Wisdom of the Five Seasons to Enrich You and Your Coaching and Supervision Practice
Beginning March 2023
from Elaine Patterson and Karyn Prentice at PattersonPrenticeDesigns
This Series has been inspired by Karyn Prentice’s book “Nature’s Way Designing the Life you Want Through the Lens of Nature and the Five Seasons” taking its concepts and ideas into the field of coaching and supervision practice. This Series is based on our experience harvested by working in this way in 1:1’s and with groups for the last seven years.
This Series brings a fresh lens to the joys and the fruits of working in nature. We will walk together through each of the 5 seasons using the rich, varied, and creative metaphorical lens and language of nature opening you up new insights, new perspectives and fresh thinking which can nourish, inspire and resource you and your practice in new and different ways.
This series unfolds over a 12 month calendar cycle of the Five Seasons: Spring, Summer, Late Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Starting in Spring, this Series takes you through a uniquely personal and professional journey of developing new insights for you and your practice as we connect to the distinctive beauty, inspiration and wisdom of Nature.
In this way we are attending to our own inner ecology, growing our resilience and resourcefulness as we deepen our reservoirs compassion for discover, reflection, emergence and fresh insights. And indeed, as the year progresses you will notice your own deepening connection to the Nature that you already greet as Friend.
In this work we partner with Nature in real time and explore the metaphor of each season as it unfolds and gives way to the next.
We will meet on-line in our virtual green field 5 times throughout the year in sync with the seasons. We offer a morning or afternoon webinar for each season to cover all the different time zones. Each seasonal webinar will focus on exploring the current season, its essence and tonality and the questions it asks of us in creative, poetic and meditative ways and how you can bring this into your coaching supervision practice.
During our webinars we will provide you with ideas, exercises and practices, which you can use for yourself and with your clients. A short field book will also be provided to accompany you for each of the seasons.
