Grief Tending in Community. 6th - 9th December

With Sophy Banks, Jeremy Thres and team

Grieving is a natural process, allowing feelings such as sadness, loneliness, anger, despair and many more. The more we open ourselves to love others, to celebrate the beauty of our world, to long for peace and justice, the more we open ourselves to the pain of losing what we love, or the destruction and the inequality in the world around us. Over this spacious weekend our intention is to journey together to gently allow our grief to surface, give it expression and come to a place of integration and readiness to return to our lives. This long weekend gathering brings together many strands of grief work with elders including Sobonfu Some, Martin Prechtel and Joanna Macy, and draws on the work of Maeve Gavin and Wisdom Bridge.

Doorways - Winter Movement Retreat for Women 18th-20th December

With Denise Rowe

A weekend of movement & stillness, sound & silence in the company of women on the land at winter solstice. The land is full of wisdom, the river is whispering her dreams. We are the gatherers, in winter’s dark womb time, of the mysteries. It is the work of the women, and through our bodies it is accomplished.
