Tim et Liz ont fondé Nab en 1983 après avoir enseigné en Italie, en Afrique du Nord et en France. Depuis lors, nous avons travaillé avec plus de 2500 personnes venant de 45 pays différents. Notre vision a été celle de créer un environnement dans lequel les gens pouvaient se sentir confiants, détendus et heureux, et de ce fait mieux disposés à apprendre.
A Nab Cottage nous mettons à votre disposition une grande part de notre expérience que nous avons acquise à travers le travail dans le domaine de l’éducation, le travail avec des groupes, le travail d’apaisement et les exercices corporels, ainsi que la vie en communauté qui fut une grande partie de notre vie. Nos enseignant(e)s sont motivant(e)s, passionné(e)s, ingénieux(euses) et vous apporteront une grande variété de compétences complémentaires telles que les arts, les arts dramatiques, le coaching et le mentorat.
Nous faisons aussi appel à des animateurs locaux qui apportent des compétences spécifiques au centre, notamment des musiciens, des conteurs, des danseurs ou simplement des gens qui apprécient la conversation, la nourriture et la vie ici à Nab Cottage.
Nos étudiant(e)s nous viennent du monde entier et la tranche d’âge se situe entre 18 et 80 ans. Voici quelques un des nombreux mots aimables qui nous sont parvenus à travers les années, pour n’en citer que ceux-ci.

“Very important reflections were made at Nab and also some life-style decisions. We feel more powerful and free to do what we want and also less afraid, we talk to each other and to people in a more natural way and trying to get rid of our masks. ”
