Another Kind of Christmas

Celebration and reflection to warm your heart

From Saturday Dec 22, 2018 to Saturday Dec 29, 2018
Cost: £755.00
Availability: Full

People have been gathering together in warm, convivial communities at this time of year for millennia. It is a time for lighting fires, telling stories, singing, feasting and dancing - all to keep out the dark until the return of the sun. Dawn and Tom are joyful exponents of both keeping the dark at bay - through sessions in fun, laughter, music and storytelling - and facilitating quiet space for personal reflection and physical and emotional unwinding. There will be plenty of different activities and time to be on your own and chill out, as well as in community. No pressure, just time to relax and reboot - to revel in ‘Being’ over this magical pause in the year’s ‘Doing’.

People Say…

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I have been doing courses and workshops for the last 25 years and have tried all kinds of things. This was one of my favourites, if not favourite, in terms of content. It was so varied as it had drumming, singing, dancing, writing poetry, storytelling, as well as looking at the deeper issues and blocks we may have… There was time for tears and laughter, it was really great. I would recommend it to everyone! "
