We’ve put together a collection of books, talks and groups to help you get more out of the Groundwork. All have been chosen to help support you and enable you to dig deeper into some of the subjects covered throughout the course, as well as introducing you to some of the face-to-face groups we have both been involved with.

Women in Power
Creating a safe space in which women can create a new relationship to the victim/perpetrator paradigm. We help women to uncover and reclaim their deep, wild nature.

Mankind Project
Many men feel that something is not working or that something is missing in their lives and want to put that right. Being clearer about who he is, and about his role in life, allows a man to live with confidence, and purpose, and create a life without fear for himself and those around him.

Woman Within
Woman Within UK is a community of women who support and empower each other to be the best they can be, through the Weekend retreat and through regular Circle meetings.

Celebration of Being
Honouring and embracing the shadow part of ourselves, and drawing it into the light of our awareness and compassion.

Shadow Work EU / Shadow Work US
Shadow Work is a way of transforming parts of your character that you’d like to change with compassion and understanding, offering a safe and effective technology for balancing these diverse parts of yourself.

UK Council for Psychotherapy
The leading organisation for the education, training, accreditation and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors in the UK. They have a handy ‘find a local therapist’ tool if you require one-to-one support.
