Think like a Tree 3 day intensive programme

Summary information

This is a three day intensive programme. The venue is the beautiful roundhouse and woodland at Whistlewood Common, Melbourne, south Derbyshire. The roundhouse is wheelchair accessible.


We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with resilience, longevity and harmony, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives.

By exploring principles derived from nature, this programme will guide you step-by-step through a design cycle that can be used for a wide range of personal circumstances – relationships, health, wellbeing, leisure and work.

You may want to make a significant change, some small improvements, or just want to be more content or effective in your everyday life, and whatever your circumstances this course has something to offer.

This programme comprises three full day sessions with optional activities to do at home. During the programme you will be given tools and resources to be able to build up a design that is personal to you to complete after the course is finished. All course materials are provided and you will go away with a toolkit of tools and principles that can be used again and again.

You can also use this as the first step in becoming a Think like a Tree facilitator (see website for more details).

Tutors: Sarah Spencer and Milly Carmichael

Course review:

"Be prepared to enter a potentially life-changing process where you design your life using trees and nature as inspiration while using a selection of powerful tools and techniques."
