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.

OPEN FLOORLiz Gleeson
Human beings are born to move. With movement, we thrive - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Open Floor is a lively meditation practice that builds muscular and emotional intelligence. It is a dance floor discovery zone where we move and include: good days and tough ones, passion, hesitance, joy, sorrow, births, deaths and everything in between. There are no steps to learn and no way to do it wrong.
RAINFOREST CHANTSJohn Bowker
Drawing on a rich resource of music and song from central African rainforests John leads the group into a deep and sacred space. Learn some extraordinary harmonies weaved with teachings of the earth. John's friendly teaching style encourages everyone to participate, creating a safe space for all, even those of us who feel we 'cant sing'.
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.
GONG BATH & SOUND HEALINGChrys Blanchard
Chrys also creates Gong baths and Soundscapes where you can immerse yourself in deep sound relaxation.
TRIBAL SPIRIT DRUMMINGJohn Bowker
Earthsong is famous for its large drumming sessions, up to 200 people gather for the evening drum in the Big Top. Using Djembes, Bougaraboos, Sabars, Dun Duns, bells, shakers and our voices we put together powerful polyrhythms from Africa. We chant and dance and create a truly wonderful tribal sound. Also weaving intention and magic into the rhythm the effect can be exhilarating and life affirming.
5 RYTHMSIrene Ward

She holds a warm and fluid workshop space, where the dancers are free to explore their own movement within the wave map
LISTENING FROM THE HEARTAnet Moore, Keran Simmonds & Rachel Parry
An introduction to peer listening; we will teach some guidelines and techniques, and there
will be an opportunity for all participants to have a turn at listening, and being listened to.
This simple description can not convey the power, meaning and heart opening experience
that ensues. Do come and be uplifted, connected and amazed; we open our hearts and
find new thinking, a sense of belonging and courage.
