Training: Belongingness+

July 1 - 12, 2024

A 10 day Training for Youth Workers, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union

1st -12th of July 2024

Course leaders: Sandra Geitz & Hanne Pedersen
Organizer: Mundekulla Friends

We  understand that belonging is a fundamental aspect of human existence  and that when we sense that we belong, something in us not only starts  to care but also feels cared for - and the world is in desperate need of  care.

Information about the training 

We  see the possibility for Art to act as a creative practice that can  guide us to become aware of our own authentic expression within the  deeper movement that intertwines us all.

The  practice of Embodiment and Nature Connection shows us our inherent  belonging through our own direct experience. We can perceive ourselves  as part of the ecosystem's shared living space and interconnected web of  relationships - where diversity can be truly celebrated and our  uniqueness can find its place as a contribution to the whole.

Belongingness+  propose practices that facilitate a return to the felt sense and a  deepened connection with the natural world. By engaging in embodied  experiences and artistic expression, youth workers and young people can  rediscover their inner landscapes, creative contribution and authentic  belonging.

The aim of Belongingess+

Our  aim is to empower youth workers to share transformative processes into a  sense of Belonging through Art, Nature Connection and Embodiment.  Participants will move through a personal experience, reflect on the  process and practice to support others with the same. This project aims  to give tools and practices that can support us to cultivate  self-awareness, empathy and a sense of interconnectedness on a personal,  community and systemic level.
