Adventures in Clean

Adventures in Clean is the name of a 4-day event we run that is facilitated by Penny Tompkins, James Lawley, Caitlin Walker, Marian Way and Shaun Hotchkiss. It is part therapy retreat and part modelling masterclass. Participants choose one of these as their main focus, although we ask everyone to have at least one therapy session, so they are all 'in the same boat'. We have asked several people to give us their perspective on the event...

Adventures in Clean: An Unbeatable Experience

18 August, 2016 by Jacqueline Surin

I travelled from Malaysia to the UK for Adventures in Clean for three reasons. First of all, I am constantly looking out for opportunities to deepen my skills and to become a better Clean Language coach. Secondly, when I came to Northern Taste of Clean last year, several friends who had been on the 2015 Adventures told me about the powerful insights and life-changing moments they had had. I wanted that kind of experience, too. And my third reason was that it was an opportunity to work with all five Clean Language experts in one place.

A review of the “Adventures in Clean” event

Over the May bank holiday weekend I attended Adventures in Clean and thought it was worth writing up. I really wanted to go because it featured what I view as some of the rockstars of the Clean world: James Lawley; Penny Tompkins; Caitlin Walker; Marian Way: and Shaun Hotchkiss.

My Clean Adventure: Personal and Professional Development

26 June, 2015 by Lisa Wrigley

I signed up for Adventures in Clean because I wanted the professional development. I thought it would be a great opportunity to see five of the most experienced users of Clean Language doing their thing – and that was my focus for the first afternoon and most of the following day. I was watching different people come forward for clean sessions and I was writing down their words and what was happening during the sessions, as well as my own insights and Ah-ha! moments.

Stuart’s Clean Adventure: OK to be Gay

26 June, 2015 by Stuart Clark

I attended Adventures in Clean for several reasons: I've done lots of work with Clean Learning and Training Attention and most of this has centred around Systemic Modelling which uses Clean Language quite conversationally and I wanted to experience it being used as a psychotherapeutic tool; I'd been doing quite a bit of self-development with Caitlin Walker and Shaun Hotchkiss and I thought it would be a good idea to experience working with different facilitators...

My Clean Adventure; Floating Down The River

25 June, 2015 by Cathy Foster

When I first heard about Adventures in Clean way back in January I had an urge to attend. I have a number of health issues and done a lot of work on them but it had become very hard and I had lost inspiration. Then, about a month before the weekend, someone had posted a link to an article of Penny and James’s about metaphors for healing on Facebook. I remember reading it and thinking, “I really want one of those. I want an all-encompassing metaphor, that’s not just about what’s happening now.”
