Waiting list for rewilding the soul 2019


If not us, who? If not now, when? 

Our world is reaching so many tipping points, but every significant evolutionary step has been made under pressure and this one is no different.  Humanity has brought our planet to the edge of catastrophe, but we have the capacity to choose a different future.

By definition, we cannot know where we are going: it may be a cliché, but it is nonetheless true that no problem is solved from the mindset that created it.
So, we need to step into a new way of thinking, into new minds, new ideas, new ways of being in the world. 
We can make the next evolutionary step: we need to. It will have to be spiritual, it will have to be made consciously – and it will have to be made soon.

For over 15 years, Manda Scott has taught shamanic practice in the UK and elsewhere. Now, using shamanic techniques fused with cutting edge neuroscience, she offers a doorway into a new reality: we cannot know where we are going. But we can commit wholly to getting there.

This course is full.

Manda Scott

Manda Scott is a novelist and spiritual teacher . Formerly a veterinary surgeon, she is author of the Boudica: Dreaming books and has taught for the past two years on the ‘Changing the Frame’ course at Schumacher college.  Since the publication of the Deep Adaptation paper in 2018, she has made it her focus to explore the ways by which we might make the next evolutionary step in humanity’s development, believing that a combination of the most recent neuroscience and ancient spiritual practice will provide us with a route to a different future.

If you would like to book onto one of our short courses, you will need to create an account. This is a simple process of choosing a username, email address and password. Once you have created an account you will receive a verification email. Please click on the verification link within to have full access to the site and to make your booking. (You may need to  check your spam folder if you do not see this email.)  We will email you confirmation of your payment and any further communication about your course application.

Residential accommodation for "Changing the Frame"  is at Higher Close, a 20 minute walk from Schumacher College. All meals will be provided at the college.

A place can not be guaranteed unless we receive your deposit or payment on your chosen course. If you would like to apply for a bursary, please do this before making your course application.

Short Course Bursaries create an opportunity for an individual to experience the powerful transformative learning by joining a course that assists the participant to inspire their wider community and benefits from the participant’s own unique contribution. It is our hope that our bursaries support a wide cross section of participation on our short course programme. The number of bursaries available is limited, competition is strong and funding is not always available for every short course. Please be aware that most bursaries are in the region of 10% – 20% of the course fee so please be prepared to raise funding from other sources.  A bursary award is not intended to cover travel or incidental expenses.

Applications are viewed on a case-by-case basis and we are unable to enter into discussions on any decisions. We generally have many more applications for bursaries than we have funding available. We can only offer one bursary per person per year and priority is given to those who have not attended the college or received a bursary before. To help us support as many people as possible, please only apply if you would be unable to attend the course without a bursary.

How to apply for a bursary

NB: Please do not pay your deposit for the course yet. Any applications received where a deposit has been paid will be rejected and the deposit refunded.

Six weeks before the course is due to start all bursary applications will be considered and responded to.  If successful you will be required to accept our Bursary Terms and Conditions.

Please answer the following:

  1. What does a bursary mean to you?
  2. How will your attendance on this course benefit the wider community?
  3. If your financial situation justifies you applying for a bursary, how much are you able to contribute towards attending this course?

Please be prepared to supply an appropriate reference in support of your application.

More about our growing areas and philosophy

We follow ecological cycles as much as possible. Much of the food is grown in the five and half acre agroforestry field – in a system of alley cropping and in the developing forest garden. The field also has fruit trees and bushes; young nut trees; a flock of pasture fed poultry; two wild life ponds, a craft and pollinator garden and a hazel and willow coppice.

Other areas include two herb gardens; four polytunnels; a perennial no dig vegetable garden and several fruit areas. We compost our garden and kitchen waste for use on site, and use green manures for fertility building.

Our students find their time engaging with food growing, and all it entails, a truly transformative time.   Our gardens are as much about nurturing people as plants, and hundreds of students have found the contact with the land and soil to be a rich learning journey.

Integral to the College’s international learning community, you will get to know students, staff and volunteers through daily meetings and shared activities. There is also a diverse programme of events and evening talks, offered by college residents, visiting teachers and local experts.
