Saturday 21st Novemebr 6pm - 8pm UK time

A session to explore the potential for the time of long nights to be a time of deepening, of reflection, of resourcing and of dreaming. If you are feeling the call to take a moment to slow down, settle and take stock, and if you are curious about how spending time with the body can be a resource and an anchor, I invite you to join us.

The session is likely to include body practices, journaling time, some time for deep relaxation, optional sharing/ witnessing time, music, chant and gentle movement. It's an invitation to explore ways in which our voices, breath and bodies may be a resource and a safe space to hold what is growing, struggling or emerging in ourselves and on our planet during these times.

The session is also a chance to experience a flavour of my upcoming Web of Life project, a way to bring together people who are passionate about an equitable future for people and planet to co-create a sustainable and resilient community to better navigate the challenges of our time through a deeper and embodied connection to the natural world and to ourselves. To be updated about this you can sign up here.

We will use Zoom, audio/ video software that works on most computers, tablets and smartphones, with an option to phone in using a landline phone or mobile. You are welcome to join in whatever way is comfortable with the body practices and chants offered, whether through movement (with your video on or off), chanting (others will not hear you), or just breathing, reflecting or listening in the presence of the group. The invitation is to a live embodied experience of connection and interconnection. There will be some optional sharing time.
