Do you long to create, connect and belong?

Experience the creative community your heart longs for,  join people of all ages and abilities to learn creative ways of vibrant connection with nature, yourself and each other. Find freedom to share your stories and embrace your gifts, supported by capable and caring mentors. Feel the beauty when you speak your truth with courage and authenticity.

We are excited to be planning an Art of Mentoring camp for summer 2022, and we are in talks with the Falkland Estate in Fife, Scotland to be hosted there again (as in 2013, 2014 and 2019). It is not fully confirmed yet, but if it does happen, it will run 26th July -1st August 2022. 

The UK Art of Mentoring Camps are based on the work of Jon Young and the 8 Shields Institute, and are supported by ‘Nature Culture Network’. Sign up to the NCN mailing list to stay informed, and see the latest updates in our Nature Culture Network newsletter.

There are also many other individual 8 Shields inspired events and courses happening throughout the year around Europe – see the NCN newsletter for full details…
