Embracing Change - 9-13 August 2024

Change is inevitable, unpredictable, and often out of our control. The enormity and pace of personal and planetary change can leave us feeling helpless and off-balance. How do we adapt to shifting circumstances without losing our footing? Can we face change from a place of resource?

I’ll be supporting my teacher Deborah Lewin at this multi-day workshop at the Universal Hall in Findhorn Eco-Village. Join us for a deep dive into your dance and resource yourself for meeting and moving with the changes of life.

Date: Friday 9th - Tuesday 13th August

Venue: Universal Hall, The Park Eco-Village, Findhorn, Scotland

Cost: Early bird price £295, before 14 June. Full price £340, from 15 June. £150 deposit secures your place. Subsidised places available.
