OTHER NEW WORKSHOPS FOR 2020
Dates and venues to be confirmed.
CYCLICAL LIVING WORKSHOP
Western thought has historically encouraged us to view life as a linear experience in which we move towards individual goals whilst collectively embracing progress. This workshop explores how the Tao Te Ching can help to create a cyclical and ultimately more liberating perspective to the art of living and being.
THE RULES OF ENCHANTMENT
Flying carpets and talking animals break the rules by which we live but perhaps that's what the rules are there for. To be broken! This workshop aims to subvert reality so that we can create our own storytelling webs of enchantment.
THE I CHING - GATEWAY TO THE UNCONSCIOUS
Whether as a tool of divination or as a means of developing self-awareness the I Ching has acted as a fascinating source of inspiration for thousands of years. This workshop explores how this ancient text can be used to create clarity during times of self-doubt and confusion.
