Winter Solstice Fire Ceremony
with Liz Brown & Chris Waters
Winter Solstice is the shortest day, and the darkest time of the year. It’s a time to reflect, to go within and to dream. To reflect on what has gone before, to sift out what we no longer need for the time to come, and to envision what we want to invite in, the seeds of something new that we could sow into the web of life.
Book Online, here.

Navigating Family Landscapes With Natalia Peace
A creative psychotherapy workshop, Navigating Family Landscapes shines a curious and compassionate light on our family relationships. It is an invitation to discover how past and present dynamics in our families have shaped who we are and the lives we live today. Our choices are, more or less consciously, informed by the roles we have played in parent-child and sibling relationships. Similarly, the beliefs and values we have been steeped in from our first moments in our families and culture influence our worldview – for better and for worse. The work we shall do together in a group and in one-to-one sessions will help us understand these influences so that we can meet our lives with more clarity and freedom, as individuals and family members. Book Here.
Friday 25 to Sunday 27 January
