    "Bearing Witness:
    Reciprocity,
    Narrative and Healing"
           
    with

      Ben Page, 
              Certified Forest Therapy Guide, Mentor, and Trainer              

         

     

      Join us in bringing in the new year with our Annual "New Beginnings"  Experiential Event!


      
    Sunday, January 14, 2018   

       
            
    In the great circle of all beings, wisdom and truth lay at the center. Only by decentralizing our own perception may we enter into a greater awareness of how our own stories interpenetrate all others, how we are all interconnected.

    In this experiential presentation, participants will co-investigate the ways in which the act of bearing witness can lead to intimacy, reciprocity, and healing. Drawing from his experience in Forest Therapy and the Way of Council, Ben will lead the group through a series of exercises that blend mindfulness, eco-therapy, and deep listening.

          
    This course is intended for beginning to advanced therapists.

    A portion of the annual experiential event will take place outdoors.  Please be prepared by wearing sturdy flat sole shoes (no heels), and wearing a jacket or dressing in layers depending upon the weather.


        
            

    Learning Objectives

    In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
    1. Identify the 4 intentions of Council.
    2. Define the difference between Council and psychotherapy.
    3. Identify 3 values of witnessing the healing process of Council.
         

             Ben "Crow" Page is a certified forest therapy guide and trainer, council carrier and alternative educator based in Los Angeles. He is the founder of Shinrin Yoku LA, an organization dedicated to transformative nature therapy and contemplative practice in the wild. Since his practice began, Ben has been featured in such publications as Women's Health, USA TODAY, Sierra Magazine, Washington Post, and WebMD. Ben is also a mentor and trainer of guides with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, as well as a part time administrator specializing in trainer development and recruitment. He holds a B.A. in religious studies from Carleton College and an M.A. in human development and social change from Pacific Oaks College.
