Tamalpa Programmes

Our Programmes

Tamalpa UK offers the Level 1 weekend training programme for individuals who wish to incorporate the principles and tools of embodied creativity into their own personal development and professional practices.

The Level 1 Training may be taken on its own as an intensive personal experience which focuses on Personal Embodiment of the practice and presents the principles and methodology of the Tamalpa Work. The focus in Level 1 is on the participant’s personal development and enhanced creativity.

For those students wishing to take their studies further and become practitioners and teachers of the Tamalpa Work, they will need to complete the Level 2 & 3 training programmes. (Please note the Level 2 training is made up of a number of European modules taught in the UK, with a module in France & Germany, completing with a 3 week module held at the historic Mountain Home Studio at the Tamalpa Institute in California www.tamalpa.org)

The focus of the Level 2 Training is on Embodied Leadership – the development of advanced personal practice and professional applications of the Tamalpa work in the community.

Level 3 Training is an on-line course that provides fieldwork supervision. This training segment provides students with faculty supervision, peer discussion and feedback while working in specific settings and with particular populations in their own communities around the world.

The Level 1 training in the UK is a 10-month programme meeting one long weekend a month.  For 2021 the Level 1 Personal Embodiment training will be facilitated fully online.  Next programme starts 7th January 2021.

Many students attend the Level 1 training as part of their own personal ‘soul’ journey in life, to cultivate a deeper understanding of who they are as a human being and explore a more balanced, healthier, creative & professional life, physically, emotionally and mentally. Others choose to enrol as part of a career path.
