Here we list online events being offered by our regular course leaders. Please note that although these events are not 'official' CR events, we hope that they will give you a way to connect with course leaders whose work you are interested in, and perhaps to try some of their online courses.

Sarah and Jamie Jauncey, of 'The Stories we Tell', are offering free fortnightly check-ins on Wednesday evenings. If you would like to join this gentle hour of reflection and connection, email Sarah and Jamie to find our more at: email@example.com
In February they also have a Life Stories 3 day online workshop, 8 places only.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM OUR LIFE STORIES?
We are the stories we tell about ourselves and our lives. But take time to revisit them and perspectives can change. On this workshop we use our stories to look afresh at who we are, what holds us back, where we find energy and creativity, and how we manage the challenges of life in an increasingly uncertain world.
Date: 26-28 Feb (Fri-Sun)
Time: 10-12, 2-4 each day
