7 turns

7 Turns of the Spiral

28 and 29 November 2019 - Sandycove, Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland

During these two days we invite you to bring a creative and kind eye as you open to new understanding and insight through an embodied exploration of the spiral. Discover the rich unfolding of what is calling you in the months to come and beyond so that you can craft a unique signature step by step going forward. According to Joseph Keane, Celtic Revival "if we are to find oneness we will only find it in the three experiences of being. Connection with earth, with self and with the divine"

Hosted by Karyn Prentice and Monica Ross, both Senior Faculty at the Coaching Supervision Academy

Monica Ross is an Embodied Leadership Coach, Coaching Supervisor and Dialogue Facilitator and Karyn Prentice-Fletcher is an accredited Coach and Supervisor, Retreat Leader and Writer

There will be time for individual reflection, embodied exercises, visualisations, space to draw upon the imagination and creative flow of our inner nature and the green spaces of Mother Nature as well as an opportunity to share with like-minded souls.

Pause for Breath

Pause for Breath

Written by CSA Supervisor - Amanda Ridings

This book is for leaders, coaches and practitioners who are intrigued by their contribution to, and impact on, conversations, and who are committed to cultivating an authentic presence and voice.

The book explores: the influence of internal dialogue on your interactions with others and your effectiveness in your organisation; how to increase your versatility in challenging or delicate conversations and to develop capacity for doing this in 'bad weather' (adverse conditions); and how to germinate systemic change, one leadership conversation at a time

Beyond Models - Going Deeper

Monday 23rd March - Thursday 26th March 2020

Co-creating an enquiry into the living field of our experience

If you would like to gift yourself the time and space to go deeper, this inquiry-based programme is for you. If you feel the need for refreshment and a deeper vision of the supervision work you offer, this peer learning experience can support you to achieve that.

Leaving our qualifications at the door we will move into the practice of curiosity and emergence. As we spend 4 days together, we will inquire into what takes us beyond established and fixed models. You can expect to be working in a highly collaborative learning community, where easy answers are suspended in favour of deeper possibilities. Our inquiries will lead us along experiential learning paths that use both our client work and our selves. This will include through group process. The environment will be conducive to learning and pausing. The pausing is just as important to the learning experience we will create together.

Each day there will also be space for some personal refection, possibly journalling, walking, contemplation or meditation. Over the four days we will explore our practice from a diverse number of perspectives, moving between the wider field and ourselves. All the time we will be seeking deeper levels of awareness and insight.
