A lot of people hold events, ceremonies and activities and hear the term ‘space-holding’ but very few know what It really entails. Even more than ever before it is evident that we are in an important time where authentic and safe practice is imperative. As more and more people go into deep processes it is vital that people take responsibility to engage with and train in Space-holding if they wish to demonstrate integrity and mindfulness in workshops, ceremonies and practitioner settings. It’s also crucial that we ‘check ourselves’ and in these times where inequality is endemic to many settings it vital that we tune in to WHY we want to hold space and indeed what spaces those may be.
During this introduction exploration of key themes we will exploring space-holding from different vantage points – in group work, breathwork, dyads, ceremonies and workshop formats. You will be invited to come into awareness of interpersonal, ceremonial and transpersonal aspects of space-holding – with reference to good practice, safeguarding, ethics, shamanism, energy medicine, psychotherapy and talking therapies, breathwork, ceremony, tantra and natural law.
Disclaimer: This course is an introductory opening to the field – it does NOT entitle you to call yourself a qualified Space-holder.
In this course we will look at the foundations of Spaceholding. This is a course for senior level students so the teachings are for this level students. The course will be delivered over a series of immersions, supervisions and events with practitioners who already have some experience of space-holding.

If you haven’t, please note you will need to be recommended by someone that is affiliated with us or to write a motivation letter – we will be evaluating these cases.
Recommended: to do Practitioner Ethics Course and Energetic Hygiene L1.
To complete the course it is required each student to present on a topic of personal specialism.
