Workshop: The Natural Roots of Resilience: wisdom from the wood

A workshop at Hazel Hill Wood, near Salisbury – guided by Alan Heeks, Marcos Frangos and … the wood

April 24-26 (Fri 6pm-Sun 4pm)

Hazel Hill Wood

Resilience is the skills to nurture our wellbeing amid the rising levels of change and uncertainty that most of us face in everyday life.  This weekend we’ll explore the roots of resilience in human nature: how inspiration and appreciation give us strength, how mindfulness can keep us centred and calm, and how systemic constellations and other methods help us deepen fellowship and improve the dynamics of our relationships with others.

We will also draw on the nourishment and wisdom of this magical 70-acre wood: with solo time for guidance, learning from this resilient ecosystem, and enjoying campfires, music, song and stories amid the trees and bluebells.

Alan Heeks has been exploring resilience with people and nature for many years.  He has led many groups on this theme, drawing on experience of resilient natural systems from creating an organic farm and setting up Hazel Hill.  He has also written two books on resilience.

Marcos Frangos has a passion for wellbeing and resilience in his personal and professional life.  He’s a trained facilitator of systemic and family constellations, and for years has been immersed in  personal and spiritual development, working with groups and individuals.

Hazel Hill is a magical 70-acre conservation woodland and retreat centre, 7 miles from Salisbury.  It has simple, yet beautifully crafted off-grid wooden buildings with lovely indoor and outdoor group spaces, basic accommodation in bedrooms and sleeping lofts (or camping), good hot showers and compost loos.  See more at
