If you are interested in joining the training group and are over 21 years of age please contact us via the 'contact us' page on this website.
We will then send you a questionnare via email so that we can get to know a little bit about you. The questions are about what kind of books you have read, what your expectations of the training are and whether you will be able to make it regularly to the training sessions.
We will then invite you along to meet us and ask any questions you wish. After this, if you like what you see and want to join the training group, you will be welcome to come along to any social events that we run.
Regretfully we do not offer correspondence courses as we believe that Craft training is best delivered face to face.
The training group meets in Stowmarket, Suffolk and the next training group begins on the 3rd March 2016.
The training runs on a three weeks on, one week off basis, one evening a week. We usually run from after Candlemas right through to just after Halloween with a short break for the winter before starting up again the following March. This break gives the trainees a time for reflection, it also means they do not have to attend when the weather is at its worst and driving conditions can be dangerous. We also have a very short two week break in the summer.
The dates for the sessions are published before the training starts and they do not change.
The evening starts when people arrive at 7.30pm and we finish at 10.30pm. We always begin with a recap the previous weeks learning, maybe looking at it from a different perspective, before moving on to discuss the homework. The last hour or so is dedicated to the main topics.
The sessions can involve discussions, lectures, reporting back and practical techniques such as pathworking meditations. There will also be homework to think about every week, but don't worry you won't be asked to write long essays.
So that the training group can run smoothly we have some simple common sense rules.
