The Outdoor Coaching Collective Summer Event

June 22 and 23, Rossendale, Lancashire


It’s the time of the Summer Solstice. The swallows are flitting and the days are long. Colours are vibrant and you can feel the warm, gentle breeze. All the trees are in leaf and the bright blue sky above the moorland is expansive and calm.

And now imagine 2 days of immersive coaching, learning and connection in this environment; a welcoming space to explore, practice and reflect.

There will be fresh air, good food and lots of opportunity to coach (and be coached) outdoors. We’ll explore (among other things) coaching constellations, clean space, metaphors and our outdoor connections – with ourselves, our clients and the outdoor space. We will notice what we know in our bodies as well as our minds and share our reflections around an open fire.

 If this sounds like it is for you, here’s what you need to know:

  • You’ll arrive on 22nd June at around 10.30am to tea and cake and there will be time to settle in before we begin at 11am.
  • Until 1pm, when we’ll share a good lunch, we’ll get to know one another and start to explore our connection with the outdoors, ourselves and each other.
  • After lunch, we’ll explore and practice concepts, models and approaches until afternoon refreshments and a 5pm close.
  • We’ll come back together for a mePicture of anote book on the ground surrounded by nature with petals and leavesal at around 6.30pm and there will be the option of a guided evening walk at a steady pace in the surrounding countryside.
  • The evening will finish with some shared reflections (and perhaps even marshmallows!) around a campfire.
  • After a good night’s sleep and delicious breakfast, you can choose a morning yoga practice which connects to our coaching explorations (no yoga experience needed) before we experiment with more coaching tools outdoors.
  • There will be time to practice, connect and reflect with others before we have lunch and close at 3pm.
  • Lunch and dinner on day 1 and all refreshments, and breakfast, lunch and refreshments on day 2 along with all the resources you’ll need are included in the event price of £350.
