Pesso Residential September 2020

17th Residential Pesso-Boyden Workshop 2020


“I’ve been having therapy for years. I attended this residential workshop – and I achieved more than I would have in 6 months of therapy. This is the most effective method I know” A Psychotherapist


Juliet Grayson is running this 4 day residential workshop … using a very powerful method that really helps people to make changes in their lives and move issues forward. By making it residential it will allow time for the process to deepen, and for individuals to make deeper changes.
This 4 day workshop will take place at the EarthSpirit Centre, Dundon near Somerset which is a centre situated in a beautiful landscape.  The seventeenth century farm buildings have been restored and specially converted for use as a venue. They are set within seven acres of fields and gardens, next to two nature reserves; and just two minutes walk from St Andrew’s church, which has within its cemetery a yew tree over 1,700 years old.

So, why would you attend a Pesso Boyden Personal Development Workshop? What can you expect to gain? Almost any problem you have had difficulty resolving may be able to be helped. Our history directly affects how we experience events today….if I have been roughly treated by an authority figure I may not expect authority figures in my life today to be kind to me. If I had a difficult relationship with my mother then I may have trouble relating to other women in my life. Often it is more subtle, and in working with people who have had more than ten years of one to one therapy, when they do a session they say ‘I never realised that was connected to this issue’. We also welcome people who have had no therapy at all, and are just beginning a journey of self awareness and personal development…and all the shades in between.


Venue Earthspirit, Dundon, Somerset, TA11 6PE. The venue is suitable for people with disabilities, but please let us know if you have special needs.

Timings Participants arrive at 10.30 am. The workshop will start promptly at 11 am (TO BE CONFIRMED), dinner will be about 7 pm.  The days will be rich and the schedule is full.

Helpers Place Juliet is offering one person a ‘helpers place’. They will receive a £50 discount. In return the helper will arrive at 9.00 on Monday (TBC) and help to set up the workshop and stay behind for up to 2 hours on the Thursday to help clear up and pack Juliet’s car. The helper will take full part in the workshop – but will be the person to do small tasks such as liaise with the kitchen, get the logs for the fire, tidy up the main room at the end of each day, and generally help Juliet and be a back up person as required. If you would like to do this, please check with Juliet.

If you would rather not book online then send the booking form with your cheque(s) made payable to Interaction Training Limited to: Juliet Grayson, Courtyard House, Moynes Court, Mathern, Chepstow, NP16 6HZ.
