Description

Join us for a multi-level clean experience, with six of the world’s leading clean practitioners. Whether you choose to work on your own personal development, or focus on learning more about clean modelling, this will be a fantastic Clean Learning opportunity.

The event will centre around personal therapeutic development sessions. Everyone who attends will be facilitated by one or two 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 LanguageSymbolic Modelling, Clean SpaceEmergent 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. We will often 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 us 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.

Expand description

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.

Testimonials

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 6 top 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

Adventures in Clean was a privilege to attend. I had the opportunity to witness the best in Clean work with 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.
