Do you long to create, connect and belong?

The Art of Mentoring Camp that was planned for 2021 has been cancelled, due to concerns about Covid restrictions, and the huge liabilities that running such an event involves.

However the team, and network that hosts the camps, is instead running a collection of smaller, regional camps and trainings this SUmmer, so you can still 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.

These summer events are happening around the UK, Ireland and Europe. The events, and the Art of Mentoring Camp are all based on the work of Jon Young and the 8 Shields Institute, and are supported by ‘Nature Culture Network’.
