Come to
MCCOCO 2018

Four Days !!!


From Thursday evening 3 May- 6 pm
to
Monday afternoon 5 May - 3 pm

The Monday is a Bank Holiday!

McCoCo is an exciting, international, challenging, supportive residential workshop for Co-Counsellors. It is known for its Wow factor and inspiration. This will be the 20! and last McCoCo residential workshop.

A collection of quotes from people who have attended McCoCo.

  • Freedom to follow my desires, welcome, warmth and affection. It was spontaneous, joyful, outrageous, energetic, safe, cosy, sharing, wild, accessible, in nature by hills with unexpected opportunities and tremendous food.

  • McCoCo is a place of great freedom, where you can try out different ways of being, and new ways of doing things.

  • McCoCo is a place where you can go whatever emotional and physical state you're in and you will be welcomed with great warmth and affection.

  • McCoCo is a safe place, as far as that is possible where there's also freedom.

  • There is nothing else quite like McCoCo in my life. I feel full of emotion just thinking about it. It is life at its best.

  • I remember at the end of a long and arduous opening circle, offering a spontaneous "Let's go out into the woods and make loads of noise" workshop and a few minutes later there we were doing just that.

  • That's what McCoCo enables to happen - whatever odd idea you have, planned or unplanned, you can share it and chances are that others will join you.

  • McCoco is a five minute easy walk from glorious hills. Easy access by public transport.

  • A place where I can get my special diet catered for with a smile :-)

  • I often have the desire to get into a big bouncy dress, dance joyously around outside, split leaps included with fellow like minded people. The only place that comes to heart is McCoCo. This is due to the experiences I have had there. Many things are possible at McCoCo, it's a wonderful feeling…

  • Dancing to the rhythms,
    climbing to the sun,
    playing naked Frisbee in the rain!
    sitting by the
    fire amongst
    the laughter and the fun.

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.

The program will be open and will be created by McCoCo's participants. 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.

WORKSHOPS

Since McCoCo 2010 we are inviting people to offer workshops in advance. This resulted in very exciting and well-prepared offerings and inspired even more spontaneously offered workshops!  Co-counsellors registered with CoCoInfo can view which exciting workshops have been offered beforehand in 2010, in 2011, in 2012, in 2013, in 2014 and in 2016.. For McCoCo 2018 we will do this again.

The actual workshop program is open and will be created by McCoCo's participants at the spot. By creating the CoCo Open Space we bring people together with shared interests in workshops, topic groups, massage, meditation and indeed anything what makes your and other people's heart sing.

As well as participating in 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.

HESITATING...?

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.

Anyway
If in doubt, talk to Sheila Lochrie, +44(0)131-557 2419 / +44(0)1479-851 308
