My own writing: just about finished the final draft of my Forest book. More anon!
A Trick of the Light: poems from Iona is available to order now, early 2018, from Pindrop Press. I’m delighted to say that this book, only recently out, has garnered a few nice reviews on Amazon (more very welcome!). I’m even more delighted to be launching this book during my writing retreats on the Isle of Iona, its birthplace, on Monday 9th April at 5pm in the Iona Community Shop. If by the remotest chance you’ll be nearby then, please join us!
After 20-something years, I’ve created a solo one-day retreat out of my THRESHOLDS AT IMBOLC workshop. This is relevant in the northern hemisphere from late January to the spring equinox, though its major potency is at Imbolc, or Candlemas, 1-2 February.
On Thursday 26th April, probably both uplifted and exhausted from my two weeklong retreats on Iona, I’ve been invited to be guest poet alongside my poetry collaborator Rose Cook at Exeter Phoenix, 7.30pm
NEW: I’m offering three outdoor writing & mindfulness sessions in Devon in May, June 24th (Presence, haiku & haibun), and July 8th (‘Tongues in Trees’) . More here.
THE LAND’S WILD MAGIC, CORNWALL, JUNE 2018 is now full, with a waiting list
ISLANDS OF THE HEART on the Isle of Iona is now filling for 2019; there is a new September week
IN HARVEST TIME is a new memoir-and-nature-writing week, in West Cornwall in September 2018.
The first course in 2017 was a year-long closed group: The Wellkeepers: a depth exploration, for women, of the lost feminine, soul and its gifts of relatedness in our culture, our life in the light of the Quest for the Grail, and the writing of our individual story as we go. Its focus was, and is, on healthy relationship to all the other humans, and other-than-human species who share our planet, and to the earth herself, as well as to our inner life. In other words: how we might live. Now, in 2018, I’m delighted to be offering it to men and women alike in its new form in early November as a weeklong residential depth exploration of Sacred Feminine, Sacred Masculine.
More as they come up. Oh, and if you’d like individual attention for your creativity, writing, or ecosoul ‘process’ work, see here.
