2022 calendar & general info


COVID19 2020/21/22: things have, of course, changed. All my events – residential courses, poetry readings, walking day retreats – were cancelled in 2020 and the early part of 2021. My Isle of Iona ‘Islands of the Heart’ retreats, 22 years’ old now, happen again in March & April 2022. The dates for 2023 are filling fast (and some participants are booking for 2024!).

In a year that goes to plan, 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 mountains and 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, all in wildish places with their other-than-human inhabitants, come and join me – online, or in person as soon as we can.

In 2022, however, I’m largely taking a break from leading courses. However, I will once again be offering my two new online weeks Poetry, Imagination & the Ensouled Life, and Poetry, Nature & Mindfulness, in the autumn of 2022, and adding a third: Encounters with Kin: the new nature memoir. I’ve been promising this, for prose writers, for ages, and am excited to be designing a new week. More details later in the summer..

If you’d like to hear of new events, books & courses, contact me with your email address and I’ll add you to my list. The newsletter happens four or five times a year, and I promise I’ll never sell your name or allow it to be used for other purposes.
