A journey into how creativity, nature connection, and mindfulness can support a vibrant and life-long recovery from addiction. For those with a minimum of six months clean time.

The weekend will be limited to 8 participants. It is open to everyone, whether you are completely new to this type of work, or have loads of experience of diving deep into self development.

Each participant will have the opportunity to do their own in-depth piece of facilitated 'process work'. The weekend will also include various individual, pair and group exercises to build trust and safety, prior to the process work. Participants find they gain a great deal from being part of the circle, from  the initial 'container building' exercises and self reflection, and from witnessing and supporting others in doing their work.

For me, the landscape of being a person of mixed heritage is complex, especially when that is visible through my brown body within a white-body-supremacy landscape.  And each time I am in space with others of mixed heritage I feel such a deep relief in my body, especially if we are talking about it.

Kin is open to anyone of mixed heritage for whom one parent/grandparent is either European or descended from the European colonisers outside of Europe and one parent/grandparent is non-European and descended from the global majority.

Life events and our changing lives require of us to be different. This asks us to step into the unknown, in order to do, be and feel these differences. To bring a now fuller version of ourselves into our families, our communities and the world. Old ways and stories need to be seen and heard in order for them to be let go. To allow space for a new way to emerge. These stories and a new vision of change is experienced when we place ourselves in nature in an intentional way. Removing distractions and being ’empty’, we meet ourselves ‘out there’ and nature provisions an opportunity to greet our potential.

This course comprises a series of five interrelated retreat-workshops exploring the theme of our own death. Those who work with the dying often share the view that it can be a time of healing and spiritual transformation. We will prioritise ‘being with’ our death in different ways, including through creativity, silence, and ritual.  The course will include exploring together how the bardos (as described in the Tibetan text, Liberation through Hearing in the Bardos) can support an unveiling of our radiant sacred nature through all the transition moments in our lives, including our dying.
