Held Spaces

Standing in the Light & Sitting in the Dark

Cornwall, Sept 2019; East Sussex, July 2019

Co-facilitating with Meredith Freeman

Are you looking to live a spirit led life? Join us to make space for unhurried, open hearted attention to your inner life and the depths that call us. Together we will explore and create models for navigating from these depths to tangible ways of being and acting; to lives that realise the spirit’s yearning for love and justice.

Listening & Gathering: Holding Space with Spirit

Woodbrooke, Aug 2018

Co-facilitated with Meredith Freeman

Do you hold space for others? Or feel drawn to try? Perhaps you’re someone who listens and accompanies; gathers and grows community; or facilitates conflict resolution. This course invites you to explore the personal aspects and spiritual source of such practice. Join us to welcome a spaciousness that holds and nourishes connection with spirit, ourselves and each other. We will learn by being and doing – come prepared to practice, reflect and share.

We're offering this course again at Ammerdown, near Bath, Thu 17 - Fri 18 Oct 2019

Conversation evenings
