Held Spaces

Listening & Gathering

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, Thurs 17th - Fri 18th Oct 2019
