Is Art of Mentoring For You?

The Art of Mentoring is an inter-generational experience for anyone longing for deeper connection to self, nature and others. Immerse yourself in vibrant connection to nature in our 200-person ‘village’.

What Will You Do on Art of Mentoring Camp?

This week-long residential camp will give you an experiential introduction to the 8 Shields nature-based map for creating healthy cultures, building effective teams and natural learning. Weave this throughout your life and feel yourself flourish.

“I expected to learn practical exercises I could pass on, instead I got a whole map of transformation” 

Dr. Adrian Harris, Eco-Psychologist

How Does Art of Mentoring Work?

The Art of Mentoring combines approaches from modern education, indigenous wisdom and principles observed in nature. It awakens new possibilities and provides clear and specific ways of working. Adult and youth programmes run concurrently, offering an inter-generational mentoring experience.

You’ll be guided by a team of experienced facilitators led by tracker, teacher and storyteller Jon Young. Each day includes personal and group activities. Mostly held outside, these include:

  • The ‘art of questioning
  • Inner & land-based tracking
  • Naturalist education
  • Sensory awareness
  • Inspirational storytelling
  • Creative arts
  • Ceremony
