Come to McCOCO 2010

NEW! This year we have invited people to offer workshops in advance. This resulted in a very exciting and inspiring offering. Registered co-counsellors can click HERE to see this exciting offering so far.

Four Days !!!  From Thursday evening 29 April 6 pm to Monday afternoon 3 May 4 pm

Co-Counsellors living in Scotland are delighted to offer McCoCo 2010 residential workshop. We are offering this exciting, international, challenging, supportive, fun space from Thursday evening 29 April to Monday 3 May. This will be the twelfth! McCoCo residential workshop. The Monday is a Bank Holiday for everyone in the UK.

We have booked a wonderful venue 25 miles from Edinburgh called Wiston Lodge. It is a magnificent 19th century Lodge house, set in its own extensive wooded grounds. There 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.

NEW! This year we have invited people to offer workshops in advance. This resulted in a very exciting and inspiring offering. Registered co-counsellors can click HERE to see this exciting offering so far.

The workshop program is open and will also be created by McCoCo's participants at the spot.. 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 the 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.


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 the UK and beyond. We will offer a workshop especially for first-timers at the beginning of the workshop. We encourage also the forming of buddies.

Feeling rusty...?
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.
