Environmental Arts Therapy Group | Circle of Trees
Start date: 21st September 2016
The Circle of Trees is an experiential group for adults; trainees & practitioners in the arts; education; social care; psychotherapy and counselling. Running fortnightly, these 2 hour sessions will introduce you to the developing theories and practices emerging from ecology and environmental arts therapy. Designed to inspire you to build a more ecological approach to your personal and professional life, we will introduce you to the themes, symbolism and mythology of trees within the Celtic Calendar; deepening awareness of our connection with nature as the seasons unfold. There will be a focus on nature inspired storytelling, discussion and art-making.
The group runs for each term through the year: you may join for one term of 6 weeks or extend membership for the year.
