THE EMPOWERMENT RETREAT
“STAND STILL. THE TREES AHEAD AND THE BUSHES BESIDE YOU ARE NOT LOST. WHEREVER YOU ARE IS CALLED HERE. AND YOU MUST TREAT IT AS A POWERFUL STRANGER, MUST ASK PERMISSION TO KNOW IT AND BE KNOWN. THE FOREST BREATHES. LISTEN. IT ANSWERS.”
– David Wagoner, Lost
The Empowerment retreat is a 5-day immersive and experiential program running from September 9-13 2022 and is designed to help participants embody their capacities as coaches and to reconnect with and deepen their abilities for deep listening, powerful conversations and living aligned with their deepest sense of purpose. The retreat offers a number of unique opportunities to radically deepen learning in community and in an extraordinary wilderness setting.
Alongside many other activities during the retreat, participants are facilitated into direct wild world encounters in deeply powerful, surprising and transformative ways. The experiential group and individual activities include deep listening practices, mindfulness practices, conversations with the wild, somatic and embodied learning opportunities, and many nature-based practices and games entwined with and built around competencies-based coaching skills opportunities. The activities can open powerful new doors for coaches to be able to engage their clients more effectively and effortlessly in their sessions. Over the retreat, participants are also given plenty of time to engage in their own process of introspection, integration and change and also offered appropriate support.
The retreat is dedicated to reconnecting with self, others and the land, so ample time is made for that. Alongside all the deep experiential learning we also have a lot of fun and play. Each evening we have facilitated council and a group learning activity which includes story, song, fire and plenty of laughter.
The program will be led by Rod Francis. The Empowerment Retreat is part of the Emergent Coach Training program and earns participants up to 33.5 International Coaching Federation (ICF) ACSTH units.
