Rewilding The Artist's Way - For Women

Tutor: Natasha Lythgoe
Location: Various outdoor locations
Next start dates:  Thursday 05 October 2017


"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

  • Rediscover your passion or 'thing'?
  • Unblock some of the barriers you have around doing it?
  • Begin a new chapter
  • Participate in a personal and collective adventure in transformation
  • Explore Re-Wilding and the Arts in nature

I get asked a lot, ‘What is ReWilding?’

ReWilding can be defined as a return to a natural state.

In our natural state, using our own authentic voice rather than the voices of obligation, burn out, numbness.... is what happens on this course. Using the structure of The Artists Way and the context of the natural world, I support student to claim their lives, or re-claim their lives. This might involve getting 'unstuck', taking risks, developing curiosity, connecting with creativity, appreciation and listening. The big listen, listening to what has purchase on our hearts and the stories that live underneath whatever work we do in the world. 

This course is also a response to calls for women-only programmes. It will be an opportunity to come together as a community of women and cultivate a sense of being indigenous to here - our home. Keeping it local, creating relationship and community in the broadest sense of the word we will fold what we learn back into our 'everyday lives'.

This programme includes both lightness and depth. We need to not take ourselves so seriously that we get in the way of our spontaneity and playfulness and risk taking. And we need to take the parts of ourselves seriously that long for depth, meaningful connections and meaningful work. 

You’ll need a copy of The Artists Way to attend the course, and to get the most out of your attendance you should set aside extra time during the week for assignments. 

Locations

We will meet at nearby outdoor locations such as New Timber Hill, Devil's Dyke and Stanmer Park. 

LIft Sharing

We will set up lift sharing for those that need a lift to the outdoors locations.

Testimonials

" Re-wilding the artist way" has been fundamentally the most soul nourishing thing I have ever done for myself. It has led me on a journey of self-discovery, self-appreciation and courage. I long for being in the wilderness like never before, and notice the peace and feeling of being alive that it brings me. Natasha is patient, encouraging and very human in the way she leads this course and I am forever grateful to her. “
