Advanced Intensive in Tuscany, Italy

with Jill Freedman and Gene Combs
Dates: October 1-7 (welcoming dinner October 1, departure October 7) 2017
Limited to 15 participants

In October 2017 we will offer our seventh annual advanced intensive in an especially beautiful spot in the Tuscan countryside. Our friends, the Rossi family, will once again welcome us to their highly rated bed and breakfast, Podere Ponte a Nappo.

Location: Ponte A Nappo Bed & Breakfast, San Gimignano, Italy

We plan to join with up to 15 other experienced practitioners of narrative therapy just outside the ancient walls of San Gimignano, Italy for a 5-day intensive workshop. In the month before we meet we will correspond with participants to find out about the contexts they work in, the practices they are excited to learn more about, and the challenges they are facing in their practice. We will use this input to plan a set of experiences that meet as many specific requests, contexts, and challenges as we can in our time together. We will also share some of our newest work and provide structure for exercises and reflection.

We will meet for two 3-hour blocks each day, often in the gorgeously maintained gardens of the bed and breakfast. This will leave time for extended walks in the town or the countryside, visits to other hill towns, drives through the Chianti country, or just relaxing in the lush natural surroundings. Partners, family members, or traveling companions will be welcome to join us for meals and excursions.

We plan the course with the assumption that attendees have considerable familiarity and experience with narrative ideas and practices. If you are interested, contact us at 847-866-7879 or narrativetherapy@sbcglobal.net. We will correspond with you to get details about your background and experience to be sure that there is a good fit between our intentions and your desires.
