2020 calendar & general info


SCROLL DOWN FOR CALENDAR and for 2020 events. You can see testimonials for many of the courses here

May 2020 COVID19: things have, of course, changed. All my events – residential courses, poetry readings, walking day retreats – have been cancelled for the foreseeable future; possibly the whole of 2020. I’m assuming that my Isle of Iona ‘Islands of the Heart’ retreat, 20 years’ old next year, will happen in 2021 (and all bar the 3rd week are nearly full).

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 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 – online, or in person next year.

Currently, in 2020, I’m focusing on my own writing. There is a sequel to my Tree book (A Spell in the Forest is due out in 2021). I’m creating new online courses with an ecosoul focus; the first two will be a Poetry, Nature & Mindfulness course, and a reflective writing retreat, self-administered. Also I  have a SoundCloud page and have uploaded more poetry, often embedded in a podcast to do with place (the Isle of Iona, or Dartmoor).

In the audio line, a dear friend has managed to convert a cassette tape I made, with specially composed music, in 1994, after my book Riding the Dragon emerged. This contains an introduction to the creative visualisation/active imagination process rooted in Jung’s work, and two visualisations. One is called ‘Sanctuary’ and the other is ‘Journey to the Healing Spring’. Both these were very popular as cassettes, and feedback is that they’re relaxing, deeply healing and restorative, and inspiring. This will be available to buy from me soon.

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.




Tongues in Trees, (The Wild Ways). Next one begins winter solstice 2020 for all of 2021. In progress now for 2020. Excellent feedback.


This next year will see three courses, through April & May. They are already filling.
