The Transformation Game, Intercultural Awareness & Embodiment and Empowerment

Hello from SHEP.  You may be feeling the cold on these windy March days, but we don’t think that you’ll regret venturing out to participate in one of these  great workshops or the forthcoming short course.  In fact, the experience will probably warm you inside and out!

There is still time to book for the Transformation Game, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday.  It’s a lovely gentle process, which can surprise and delight.

Then there is the Intercultural Awareness day with Maureen Sheehy on Saturday April 1st.  We’re lucky to have Maureen to facilitate this day.  She was the principal author of a training manual in this area, and has extensive experience in helping people explore and develop their intercultural awareness in an enjoyable way together.  

The ten-week Embodiment and Empowerment course offers participants the opportunity of tuning into themselves at a deep level, through movement and visualisations.  It will take place on Thursday nights in Ballincollig, beginning on April 6th.

Give yourself a gift – it would be hard to find better value anywhere!

Warm wishes –
Mary Mangan


The Transformation Game – a weekend workshop with Noel Bradley
Would you like help to explore some issue in depth or effect some transformation in your life? 'The Transformation Game’ offers you the opportunity of doing this. Mirroring the inner journey of life, the process invites people to explore aspects of their lives. It can enable participants to identify their gifts and strengths, to explore their intuitive abilities and to face blocks that hinder their psychological and spiritual development. The process enables you to develop trust in yourself and in others and in the movements and inspirations that you experience.  

Dr. Noel Bradley is an experienced facilitator and counsellor who has been involved in training community leaders and in personal and spiritual growth work for more than thirty years. He has worked as a trainer in SHEP’s Social Awareness & Community Empowerment course for many years. He trained in this 'Transformation Game' process in Findhorn.
When:    Sat. 25th & Sun. 26th March 2017  from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. both days.
Where:  Training Room 3, SHEP Centre, Ballincollig.
Cost:      €70
Intercultural Awareness – a day-long workshop with Maureen Sheehy
The day on Intercultural training will be participative and interactive and will aim to help participants –
·         reflect on one’s own cultural identity
·         consider intercultural communication styles and how one’s own style differs from that of others and the implications of this if one is working/training in an intercultural setting
·         explore differences in cultural values and beliefs and how these affect our behaviour, judgements and interaction with others who are different
·         intercultural theory will be offered where appropriate

Why participate in this workshop?
544,357 non-Irish people of 199 nationalities were resident in Ireland during the April 2011 census. Statistics for the last census are not yet available. The population of the Irish Republic is approximately 4.5 million. So one ninth of our present population were born elsewhere.
“Ireland has become an increasingly diverse society over the past decade and the different nationalities that make up the population of Ireland have an increasingly important impact on the economy and society,” said Deirdre Cullen, Senior Statistician at the Central Statistics Office (CSO).
Maureen Sheehy has worked as a trainer for SHEP for over 20 years. Her background is in education and communications. She worked in Africa for eight years and has worked briefly in several countries.  She is also a trainer with Partners Training for Transformation.  As part of that group, she and others gathered and developed resources and engaged in intercultural work with community groups, organisations and intercultural groups in both Ireland and elsewhere. This eventually led to the publication of an intercultural training manual ‘Partners’ Intercultural Companion to Training for Transformation’. During this intercultural training day she will be drawing from many of these resources.
When: Saturday 1st April 2017 10.00 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.
Where: Training Room 1,             SHEP Centre, Ballincollig
Cost: €25

Embodiment and Empowerment - a 10- week course with Clair Lalor
Our sense of security lies in, or is anchored by, a felt sense - the feeling of ourselves in our bodies.  This course explores our connection to our felt sense of our body, its sensations, and responses on a physical level.  In doing so, we will also become aware of how we experience the emotional, and mental aspects of our being and our experience of living. Through exercises and visualizations from somatic movement, early developmental patterns, yoga and authentic movement we will explore what our own experiences are from “inside “ the body and the special awareness we have to see ourselves from outside and moving in the spaces between ourselves and others.
Clair Lalor is a somatic movement educator and therapist, a yoga teacher (BWY), SHEP tutor & trainer, sensorimotor trauma therapist, and shiatsu therapist. She also trained in process-oriented psychotherapy for 10 years.

When: Thursdays 7.30 p.m. – 10.00 p.m.  10 weeks.
                April 6th – June 8th 2017

Where:  Training Room 2, SHEP Centre, Ballincollig

Cost:      €90
