Inspiring, Soulful Workshops

2019 Creative Workshops

'Without darkness nothing comes to birth as without light nothing flowers'
Workshops offer a unique method for transformation by actively engaging the imagination, the body and creative forces, with reflective discussion. Through engaging our left and right brain hemispheres we create movement in our psyche for new awareness and for holistic, integrated change.

The creative self-development groups and workshops use myths for self discovery and are supported and deepened with movement and the use of creative arts methods. They also offer a supportive, enriching and creative day. These are suitable for the general public for personal development and self transformation or for therapists who wish to extend their learning for work with clients or experience rejuvenating continual professional development.

An integrative Body-Soul approach for self development and therapy, using myths as a catalyst for change, supported with art and movement.

Inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Marion Woodman, Vital Development movement practice and other writers on myths and psychotherapy.

Self Development Workshops. Labyrinth

Previous Workshops<

Previous Workshops

Join ‘Journey into the Labyrinth’ for an adventure inspired by the hero/heroine journeys found in many archetypal myths such as Theseus and the Minataur, Odysseus’ journey, and Innana and Persephone's journey to the underworld.

All over the world we find similar stories and myths arising from very different cultures, with similar themes, journeys or characters. They contain archetypal images and motifs which offer us potential wisdom on our path through life. The hero’s journey is found again and again, what is that journey?

It involves a preconscious state and a setting off on a quest into the unknown to meet the fear of the darkness, the monster and trials and tribulations.

Will the individual rise to the challenge, will s/he listen to the wise guide who accompanies and helps? Will s/he return from the adventure with increased insight and even a gift to share with the community?

Working with the images that these myths bring forth we will discover their resonance in our life. We may ask questions such as,

What is the journey of discovery we might need to make in our current life? What fears do we need to face? What area do we wish to mature into? How can we find patience and rest for ourselves?

We will discover the treasures that lie within us and how we can bring forth new possibilities for our life. We will explore the seven stages of the hero’s journey and discover how to enrich our life with awareness and return with new creativity.

If you wish to open to a new adventure or if you already are on a path of self discovery, then this transformative workshop will support you to understand the stages of the hero/heroine’s journey. The process will be enhanced through movement to music (VitalDanza), art and ritual processes.

Inspired by the work of Steiner, Jung, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Joseph Campbell, Marion Woodman, Vital Development and Anna Halprin.
Be the hero or heroine of your life! Inspired by the hero's journey in classical myths, we will go on an inner journey of renewal - to shed blocks and open up to what it is we truly want for new creativity and to bring forth new positive possibilities for our life.
Supported by art, movement and ritual. Together we will create a safe space to journey into the depth for transformation.

Suitable for people who wish to enquire within and transform aspects of their life and to support creative CPD for therapists to support their and their clients journey.

The Goddess Within

Learn about archetypes and enjoy experiencing the different goddess energies through movement, art and other juicy activities!
Enjoy a creative, nurturing day, where you will learn how female goddess archetypes can support us to appreciate ourselves, our relationships and can help guide us with life choices.

Using six principle goddesses of Greek mythology, each of whom embody particular qualities, we will experience the reality of these characters in our personality. We will naturally be drawn to some rather than others and yet we may need a particular goddess quality to create balance in our life or to make changes.

We will benefit from the wisdom that each goddess offers us. We will gain clarity about choices and decisions for current dilemmas, for work, relationships and personal life and for our health and vitality.

This is an experiential workshop and will be supported and nurtured by a movement to music method called Vital Danza and expressive art, meditation and discussion together. Suitable for all levels of experience.
