Bookings are going well for the Further Advanced Course which is aimed at experienced commercial mediators.
It is a once-only course and the faculty (Joanna Kalowski, Heather Allen, Lawrence Kershen and myself) are running it at San Pietro in Valle, in Umbria, where we used to run the Advanced Course, from 11-16th September.
We have the whole place (a converted abbey) to ourselves and much of the training will take place in the gardens and the cloisters.
We also have the use of the Apothecary, a large vaulted room, if the sun gets too hot!
Another attraction is the restaurant which is attached to the abbey and is reputed to be one of the top two restaurants in Umbria.
The course will be a unique experience because it will be more of a retreat – 28 participants + 4 trainers shut away for nearly a week, soaking up all things mediation (and the sun!).
The course has been by invitation only and 13 mediators from the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan have firmly booked. Of the five remaining places, two have provisional bookings, so anyone interested should contact me soon.
The cost is £3850 and a deposit of £850 secures a place.
