The Wild Mind Training Residential is the core of the Wild Mind Training Program steeped in the Nature Based Map of the Human Psyche. In this 5-day training, participants hone their skills in listening, tracking, deepening, mirroring, and creating invitations to help others cultivate their wholeness and heal their wounded and fragmented subpersonalities. We also practice the skills of council, dreamwork, and Shadow work, and further develop our understanding and use of the Nature Based Map of the Human Psyche. Included is an introduction to the use of the Soulcentric Developmental Wheel.
Designed for human development guides, the WMTP is a professional training in the use of the Nature-Based Map of the Human Psyche to support others to cultivate their innate wholeness and to acquire the skills of Self-healing.
The objectives of the Wild Mind Training Residential are to:
- provide training in the NBMHP model and in the skills of facilitating nature-based wholing and Self-healing
- support trainees in their personal cultivation of wholeness and Self-healing
- support the career development of professionals called to guide others toward wholeness. (Note that the WMTP is not a training in underworld guiding. Learning to facilitate the descent to soul is the mission of Animas’ Soulcraft Apprenticeship and Initiation Program — SAIP) An application and acceptance into the Wild Mind Training Program is required for this Residential.
- Continuing Education Credits are available for an additional fee. Please inquire.
As author Gary Snyder notes, “To speak of wilderness is to speak of wholeness.” To have a wild mind is to have a wholemind. People with wild minds are those who have cultivated and embodied their innate human wholeness — the full rainbow spectrum of capacities, talents, and sensibilities that constellate our evolutionary birthright.
