Introducing The Centre for Creative Vision
Here For All of Us
The way of creative vision
What is a Visionary?
There is a Visionary within us all. Essentially this is the part of us we each have to claim in order to make a life lived in keeping with our true knowing and desire. Through time the Visionary has featured in all cultures and civilisations. The Visionary is the artist, the leader, the planner and the inspired one. In Scotland, the Visionary has been the archetypal seer. She/he can also be known as the shaman, curandero, bard, storyteller, healer, magician, witch or the medicine person amongst lots of other titles. To be a visionary is to sit alone and attune to the story within. It is also to sit with another and make space for the vision to emerge in the field between. So the Visionary is also the counsellor or the empathic listener.
Created by Carol Day, Creative Vision is an innovative model working to bring the Visionary to life in everyone in order to create a clear collective vision for our planet.
The three lenses of the work
There are three lenses or access points through which you can enter and appreciate the guiding principle of Creative Vision.
The first lens is Coaching.
The second lens is Earth Ensemble.
The third lens is Visionary Shamanic Practice.
You can enter through any one of these access points to meet the work and develop the Visionary within you. Most people who choose Coaching are looking to work something out and find their way in life. This layer is mainly for private supervision work or coaching. People who choose the Earth Ensemble work are generally looking to be able to open vision to better see and understand the systems and patterns at play in their life, family, culture and organisations. This is usually as a means to free themselves to be able to follow their own vision in the world. People who come in through Visionary Practice will be looking to develop their ability to see beyond the ordinary realms as a Shamanic Visionary and will be ready to step onto explorative and life changing courses with an intent to work at a very deep and effective level with the communication systems at play.
Kilgour House, The Falkland Estate, Fife, KY15 7AE and Old Lathrisk, Freuchie, Cupar, Fife KY15 7HX
Kilgour means ‘wooded hill’.
The house and its gardens are on the site of an ancient chapel and burial ground. The font of the original chapel stands right next to the medicine wheel in the walled garden. The monks from Lindores and Balmerino Abbeys were brought here for burial, after their coffins rested at 'The Pillars’ a mile away. This acted like a chapel of rest before the final procession. The Pillars are now The Pillars of Hercules organic cafe, shop and camp site which is conveniently placed for teas, cakes and accommodation for clients and course participants!
So the site has an ancient connection with Transition and the Mysteries.
Old Lathrisk is a beautiful 16th century Scottish country house near Falkland.
Falkland is on amazing land. Its name means ‘The Hidden Place’ and it is such a natural place for visionary/shamanic healing and exploration.
Carol Day founded the Centre in 2009. In the early days the practice ran as the little red drum School of Creative Shamanism. It was an art gallery and a more mobile unit until it moved to its home on the Falkland Estate in 2011 and the training courses began to flourish. The brand changed to that of a Centre for Visionary work in 2018 and is hosted by other venues such as The Centre for Stewardship, Falkland for some of its specialised trainings.
