Next March (2020) I’m going to be involved in facilitating an innovative and immersive four-day programme for qualified coaching supervisors at beautiful Salomons Estate in Kent. Beyond Models, Going Deeper promises to be a time of personal reflection, giving us the opportunity to pause and discover a deeper vision of the supervision work we offer.
Leaving our qualifications at the door we’ll move into a practice of curiosity and emergence. Over our four days together, we’ll experience our ‘not knowing’, and inquire into what takes us beyond established and fixed models. Anyone coming to the programme can expect to work in a highly collaborative learning community, where easy answers are suspended in favour of deeper possibilities.
Each day will provide space for personal reflection, possibly through journalling, walking, contemplation or meditation. All the time, we will be encouraging each other to seek deeper levels of awareness and insight, using both our client work and our selves, working in group process.
For myself, I’m hoping these days together will fulfil everything I love best about supervision, especially its wonderfully curious, emergent and developmental process for whoever is involved. This will be time away to explore experiential learning paths, and discover how we might become our best selves in service of our clients, and for our own flourishing as supervisors.
Since first posting this event, we have had a change of venue. Beyond Models, Going Deeper will now take place at Salomons Estate, just a few miles outside the spa town of Tunbridge Wells in Kent. This is a stunning Victorian mansion, designed by the acclaimed architect Decimus Burton, and set in 36 acres of rolling gardens, parkland and woods. We are confident that this new setting will offer a better environment for the group and the processes we will be working through. Another advantage is that everyone on the programme will have their own room with private bathroom.
Here are the practical details:
Date: 23-26 March 2020
