Come to McCoCo 2016
Four Days !!! From Thursday 28 April 6 pm to Monday 2 May 3 pm
Co-Counsellors living in Scotland are delighted to offer the McCoCo 2016 residential workshop. We are offering this exciting, international, challenging, supportive, fun space from Thursday evening 28 April to Monday 2 May. This will be the 18th! McCoCo residential workshop. The Monday is a Bank Holiday for everyone in the UK.
We have booked again the wonderful venue 25 miles from Edinburgh called Wiston Lodge. It is a magnificent 19th century Lodge house, set in its own extensive wooded grounds. The re are several spaces suitable for different kinds of workshops including a sports hall for dancing and a big room for the opening circle. For more pictures of the venue, click here.
Exciting WORKSHOPS are coming to McCoCo 2016
Since McCoCo 2010 we are inviting people to offer workshops in advance. This resulted in very exciting and well-prepared offerings and inspired even more spontaneously offered workshops! Co-counsellors registered with CoCoInfo, the CCI Co-Counselling web site, can view which exciting workshops have been offered beforehand in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and in 2014. There you can see how much innovation and inspiration McCoCo has been offering. For McCoCo 2016 we are going to this again. To view these workshops, you need to log in!
The actual workshop program is open and will be created by McCoCo's participants at the spot. For this we organise a CoCo Open Space. Anyone can offer a co-counselling workshop or ask for a topic group, massage, meditation and indeed anything what makes your and other people's heart sing. As well as participating in workshops and support groups or simply having co-counselling sessions you can choose to enjoy dancing, chatting with people from overseas in front of a log fire, walking in the lovely grounds or in the nearby Tinto hills etc.
Afterwards, the 3 May, there is the McCoCo Conference 2016 near Edinburgh! '
New to Co-Counselling?
We extend an especially warm welcome to Co-Counsellors who have recently completed Fundamentals or who have not been to an event like this before. This event provides an opportunity for you to meet Co-Counsellors from throughout Scotland and beyond. We will offer a workshop especially for first-timers at the beginning of the workshop. We encourage also the forming of buddies.
No problem, the only requirements for having sessions is to be able
- to give your free, aware caring attention to your client
- to refuse to enter into a session contract or to give a suggestion if you don't want to
- to keep confidentiality
If you are able to do this, you will very quickly remember again what you have learnt earlier in Co-Counselling, especially when you experience the support, freedom and encouragement that McCoCo has on offer.
Scotland too far away or McCoCo difficult to travel to...?
As there are so many Co-Counsellors in Edinburgh we can possibly offer accommodation with Co-Counsellors in Edinburgh before and after McCoCo. Tick the relevant box on the booking form.
