Venue details


We've been running our annual retreat, Adventures for Clean, for several years now - and a question we're often asked is “What actually happens at Adventures in Clean?” A simple answer is that the six of us (Marian Way, Caitlin Walker. Penny Tompkins, James Lawley, Shaun Hotchkiss and Phil Swallow) are there to facilitate what YOU want to have happen. You choose the topic, which process you'd like  us to use (Symbolic Modelling, Clean Space, Emergent Knowledge, Whirly Gig, etc.) and where you'd like to be facilitated (house, garden, WhirlyGig, beach, woods) - and we facilitate. You can also ask questions about what we are up to, or take part as a coach yourself, with supervision from us.

During the event we also introduce participants to some of David Grove's lesser-known processes (e.g. Clean Hieroglyphics or Intergenerational Healing) - which extends the range of processes you can choose from. 

So much happens at Adventures in Clean it's difficult to describe it all in writing. So we offer this free webinar a few times a year to give you an opportunity to meet some of the facilitators and some previous participants - and ask any questions you may have. We will explain what happens each day, talk about the venue and surrounding location (which all add to the adventure), discuss different clean processes you'd be interested in learning about - and more. At least two of the facilitators will be present at each event.
