4. The Walk; A Day Journey of Soul and Ceremony with the Land, East Lothian 
next date: Saturday 12 October
It is possible to participate in all four Celtic seasons of The Walk and tend the threads through each of the seasons. Walking at the cutting edge, l created The Walk in 2001. I've been guiding many people on 'The Walk' since then,18 years ago with now a breadth and depth of experience. The Walk was filmed by BBC Scotland in 2006 (the called Medicine Walk). It is a day experiential 'Journey of Soul', a deep process in conversation with this animate Earth and ourselves as expression. 'The Walk' process has been deepened further by 6 years apprenticing with Bill Plotkin and The Animas Valley Institute. It is a great opportunity to deepen further into or to experience a first taste of this essential way of walking in the world today as we shift into a new human consciousness and a dying of old ways. The Walk can also be a first step into working with other people on the land. There is a Continuing Professional Development Certificate for the day. A few comments from many:
“It’s been a journey, and an awakening in many senses of the words, I feel at a very different place than when we set off all those years ago – or was it just this morning??…..lots of memories and thoughts and layers of inspiration.” Anna (Linlithgow) 

“I think l have just started on a journey, thanks to today…” Dawn

“A valuable walk/journey which l am so glad we had you, Wendy, to guide us. I never thought l would get so much from it. Thank you Thank you Thank you.” Richard

6. Whispers; Imagining Earth Community
Surrendering to Earth's Wisdom 

This book emerged as part of my photography and poetry exhibition in Dunbar Town House Museum and Art Gallery in July, 2018. 

"A wee and very dear book - the offering of a nature mystic and Earth lover" ~ Geneen Marie Haugen

"At once a prayer, a poem, an illuminated pilgrimage, Whispers gently seduces us back across the nearby hidden threshold into the animate world that has been waiting for us all along. With incantational verse and Mystery images, Wendy Robertson Fyfe offers us something more than a book — visionary food for the human soul; cool, clear, Pan-scented well water for the thirsty heart."~ Bill Plotkin, author of Soulcraft and Wild Mind.

the book @ £9.99+pp

8. Can our profession surrender to its own transformation

in the current shift of human consciousness

A recording of a live one hour Conversation with John Wilson from 'On-Line Events'. Available in the global library of Continuing Professional Development Resources for Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Supervisors and Coaches. The conversation asks us to consider the place of the professions in the current global crisis. 'Business as usual' to deepening into transformation within ourselves as practitioners as well as the profession. Is it a coincidence that a death denying culture is seeing the possibility of its own extinction? How are we imagining the profession in 200 years, or even 50 years from now?  Is the profession itself part of the problem? 

 The Nature-Based, Soulcentric Development Wheel 
Recorded interview about Bill Plotkin's 'Nature and the Human Soul; Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World'
The recording is not a training, it is an opportunity to begin to hear about and explore this visionary model for our urgent time. Reading 'Nature and the Human Soul: Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World' by Bill Plotkin PhD is recommended beforehand, but not essential. This recording is offered with kind permission of Bill Plotkin. see https://www.onlinevents.co.uk/

10. Deepening Wild Conversations
Glen Feshie, Cairngorms National Park
 -contact Wendy for future programmes

Nuzzling-in with tall-standing pine and enchanting silver birch, with bushy-tailed red squirrel, stag preparing for rutting, hooting owl and eagle soaring above, with wide-pebbled river rushing and gurgling near moist mossy purple heather and fertile fungal banks, we will deepen into wild conversations with ourselves, each other and these sacred beings of Glen Feshie in Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.
Are you longing to experience, or re-experience, the vitality in the undercurrent of your life and in this magical Earth? Do you want to explore the kinds of conversations that may open you to live more fully as one within an Earth Community? Do you wonder about who you might be within such a community? If so, this offering is for you.
With gatherings, invitations and wanderings on the land together we will cross thresholds into remembering and meeting the depths of our true inheritance. What if this animate Earth is longing,

maybe even dying,

for us to do just that...

11. Dreaming into Being - A Day Encounter with Soulcentric Dreamwork
What if attending our inner climate within the conversation of wider Earth Community also makes the change?

Next date and venue tbc

This introductory day into nature-based Soulcentric Dreamwork will approach dream as a doorway to Soul informing personal/cultural transformation. Dream is an area of inner wildness in an otherwise domesticated, de-sacralized culture. At this time of global unraveling, dream can help guide us on next steps in this shift of human consciousness. The land of dream through images, symbols, metaphors, archetypes and body feeling can lead us to imagine and experience what is possible from the wild psyche of earth and human soul; sources beyond our fragmented egoic humancentric self and modern western industrial growth society; a place where as yet unknown treasures and resources can emerge organically from the depths within. This culture does not give importance to dreamwork. What if being with dreams now is one of the most radical things we can do personally, culturally and for our unraveling world.

Wendy has been/is attending to dreams, her own and with other’s for many years in psychotherapy practice and guiding a dreamwork group at the Salisbury Centre, Edinburgh earlier this Century. Following dreams Wendy is now trained by the Animas Valley Institute in working with Nature-based Soulcentric Dreamwork as a soul guide and mentor. This way is not about interpretation or analysis; rather, it is letting the dream do its fiercely loving and transformative work on us. It is not for the faint-hearted. It is for you who are willing to enter unknown depths in this dark time, who are interested in human development, visionaries, artists, poets, healers, musicians, curious, and cultural change agents.

The day will include indoor meeting and outdoor walking by the sea as we converse with our dreams on the land and into a bigger conversation with the Earth Community so please come prepared for both.

 

Cost for the day is £75. For further information and booking contact Wendy

12. Living into Wholeness, Stepping into Soul: Resourcing for the Journey,

an Experiential Day

State Theta Galleries, Ormiston, East Lothian, 10am - 5pm

 

This experiential day workshop offers an introduction to nature-based resourcing available to human beings as Earth beings. It will deepen awareness of our relations with Earth Community within an animate, soul-infused world where every thing - river flowing, sap filling, light returning, bees buzzing, land and tree greening is coursing, fecundity rising as Earth's North turns to face the sun.

In this workshop you can expect to:

~Learn about the Four Facets of Wholeness in relations with the Four Directions. The work draws centrally upon the Bill Plotkin’s ‘Wild Mind, a Field Guide to the Human Psyche'. The Four Facets enables strengthening of ego development specifically within a 'Western' nature-based model and from which we can bring home our fragments, such as, our wounded, protective, escapist, and shadow parts. I will be offering another workshop day on the Fragments, though the Resourcing workshop would need to be experienced first. You don't need to have read Wild Mind to participate, though you might find the day even more deepening if you do.

~Be offered practices and invitations to cultivate and deepen our experiences of resourcing and offering our own human nature with the nature of Earth from which we emerged/are emerging Celtic Knot-worked.

~Increase approaches and ways we engage with people professionally.

~Time with a 1,000ish year old Yew as part of the day experience; deepening in with and remembering our Ancestors in the human and 'more-than-human' world; viscerally remembering our place in this Earth if we have forgotten as deeply as our current culture has.

~ Empowering people towards a deeper sense of self, place, purpose and focus in perilous times.

 

A CPD Certificate is included for practitioners.

Cost: £120/£100 A £50 non-returnable deposit is required with final payment before the day. Please bring a packed lunch and flask for water/hot drink, journal, dress for warm indoor and outdoor weather. Contact Wendy for further information and booking.
