What's involved?

The event will centre around personal therapeutic development sessions. Everyone who attends will be facilitated by one of us for at least one session on a topic of their choice. If personal development is your main purpose for attending, you’ll be able to gain from several sessions over the course of the weekend. We’ll be using Clean Language, Symbolic Modelling, Clean Space, Emergent Knowledge and the Whirly Gig to facilitate your personal journey of insight, clarity and change.

Between your own development sessions, you can reflect, write, draw, walk, talk with other participants, observe others’ sessions, ask questions or coach someone else and be supervised by one of us. There will be several things going at once. At times we will work in pairs, observing and asking each other modelling questions to learn more about how we each work. You’ll be able to observe all of this and to ask them your own modelling questions during the debrief sessions. This includes modelling what was happening in the facilitator's mind as they were working with the client as well as modelling the unfolding structure of the session and the client's journey.

Please note that this is a group event and all sessions will open for everyone to observe and participate. Everyone who attends the event will be expected to take part in at least one personal development session.

A warm welcome, beautiful surroundings and delicious lunches (on Saturday / Sunday / Monday) await you. The Practice is Caitlin and Shaun’s family home and is situated on the stunning Dee estuary, with views across to North Wales. When you’re not joining in the learning fest, you can enjoy a walk along the beach or in the nearby parkland. The event is not residential but there are plenty of reasonably-priced B&Bs nearby and West Kirby boasts many lovely pubs and restaurants.

What people say

"Adventures in Clean was a privilege to attend. I had the opportunity to witness the best in Clean work on others AND have the experience of being facilitated by the best. My professional knowledge has deepened and I am already more effective as a facilitator. Personally, I am now living within a metaphor that will stay with me and morph for the rest of my life. Already new behaviours have emerged, sometimes at unexpected moments. I will be forever grateful for those few days."
Cathy Foster Coach

"If there were a Glastonbury festival for the mind, this would be a pass to the backstage party."
David Brown

"I had a full weekend of experiencing how it feels to be in charge of my change and how valuable that is. I am still discovering what has come up in my sessions and how it affects my life. I liked the set-up of having the 5 best Clean Language facilitators not only sharing their expertise but also learning openly from each other. It was a warm and fuzzy atmosphere for everyone to let go of their facades and be truly themselves."
Gudrun Stolzenburg Coach

"I’m so glad I listened to my heart and came on this weekend. I enjoyed getting to know myself in a deep way. I am on my authentic/divine path and am letting go of anything that is holding me back! It was also truly fascinating to see how other people tick. Watching the different expert facilitators work was fascinating and the opportunity to ask questions at the end really helped my learning. Great trainers, great group. Thank you for sharing your family home so generously with us. I loved the learning, the sharing, the freedom, the pacing, getting to know new people, the wonderful vegetarian food. It was a totally unique experience and one of the best weekends of my life! I would not change a thing. I loved it!"
Ruth Huckle Teacher

"What a mind-blowing, life-changing experience! I knew the Clean Adventure 2015 would change me in some way; I know how powerful the process is. Getting through and beyond a bind that has bothered me for some time has been a profound experience for me. Being able to find my voice and feel comfortable in voicing my opinion is also a great experience. Being able to model top Clean Language facilitators was also a rich experience as I witnessed many other peers who seem to have similar experiences to mine (judging by their smiling faces on the last day!) I'd like to thank the entire team, Marian, Caitlin, Shaun, Penny & James for their professionalism in organising this event and pulling off in a very well orchestrated manner! As well as Marcus' awesome bodywork! Really helped my back condition – many thanks! Shaun's fabulous meals – kept us feeling nourished from within as well. Enjoying the experience with the other attendees, my peers, also made the experience an even richer journey. The whole homely yet professional supportive Clean Learning environment was a most welcome experience. If you have taken Clean Language training and would not only like to see Clean Language in action by experienced professionals and/or have discovered areas in your personal life that you would like to be addressed, i.e. any blocks (my metaphor!) then Clean Adventure 2016 is a must-have event to attend!"

"I had a good time at Adventures in Clean. I met lovely people & learnt a lot. Thank you all for the learning & the friendship that I gained. Oh the food was yummy & eye catching and beautiful too."
