DANCES OF UNIVERSAL PEACEAngie Pinson
From the beginning of time, sacred movement, song and story have brought people together, at times of seasonal ceremony and celebration, as part of everyday life and life passages, in daily renewal and meditation. D.U.P is part of this timeless tradition of Sacred Dance. The Dances use simple music, lyrics, and movements to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and others. No musical or dance experience of any kind is required and everyone is welcomed to join in.
FAMILY CONSTELLATIONSBarbara Morgan
Although there are scientists and theoreticians who have been attempting to make sense of what happens in a Family Constellation workshop, no-one really knows at this present time how it works. But it does seem as if the family system has a conscience which demands that the system be in order and there are laws which operate within the system to ensure that this happens. These laws have nothing to do with right or wrong.
5RHYTHMSSherron St Clair
When we practice 5Rhythms, flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies.
Each rhythm is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprising and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative. It is, in essence, “exercise for the right brain.”
CIRCLE DANCETony Wrench and Faith
Circle Dancing draws from an ancient tradition. We dance simple dances from many folk cultures, including Greek, Romanian, Armenian, French and Russian. Some dances are energetic, some gentle. We teach each dance before dancing it. The chief aim is enjoyment, rather than technique, and the experience of moving together as a circle. The music will be live.
LIVE CONNECTIONDonal Gannon
Exploring various methods to encourage authentic wholehearted connection; build community; support each other to find ways to create the life we want; move toward greater freedom by de-programming our unhelpful patterns; develop skills in leadership, agency and self-responsibility; create space for individual and interpersonal healing; and explore new ways of experiencing and enjoying each other, our world and ourselves.
EXPERIENTAL ASTROLOGYRobert Green
In experiential Astrology we will endeavor to enter sacred space and use drama, meditation and games to explore the ancient art of Astrology, creating and experiencing Astrology in action, where we can receive insights, healings, direction and clarity. Robert has been passionate about Astrology for 28 years and has always felt that there is a need for people to experience Astrology in a very real way without all the dry intellectualism. The workshops are very much his own style.

CO-OP GAMES & LAUGHTER YOGABrian Mc Ginley
"Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play" - Heraclitus.
Playing together in a safe and open space gives us permission to reunite with our inner child, one of careless enjoyment and free spirit. Games of all shapes and sizes gathered from around the world specially to help grown ups grow down.
SOUND HEALINGChrys Blanchard
