I’m privileged to work with lovely people in stunning locations: by the sea on the Isle of Iona and West Cornwall, on the moors and in the forests of Britain and France. If you need a dose of creativity, warmth, imagination, inspiration and general soulwork, much of it outdoors, with possible transformation thrown in, in wildish places with their other-than-human inhabitants, come and join me.
Currently, I’m focusing on my own writing, with a tree book nearly completed. In 2020 I’ll be concentrating on weeklong retreats, although there will be an occasional one-day workshop. Most of the longer retreats incorporate some walking; some with the idea of pilgrimage ‘built in’. Soulwork, they usually include poetry, myth and story in one form or another, and an awareness of the 8 turning points of the old Celtic year.
My increasing focus is on mending our relationships with our inner lives, with others, and especially with the other-than-human – a profoundly urgent need.
Here are the deep ecology/ecosoul dates. There is much overlap with my holistic writing courses, and writing is an important component, but you do not need to be an experienced writer. Any in brackets are more specifically writing, for which see fire-in-the-head.co.uk.
If you’d like to hear of new events, books & writing tips, contact me with your email address and I’ll add you to my list. The newsletter happens three or four times a year, and I promise I’ll never sell your name or allow it to be used for other purposes.
