“Bringing together the political and imaginal, we will join together in reflection, dream, play, and action; celebrating delight and being present with the pain. There’ll be offerings of bodywork as we unfurl into each day, social dreaming as we gather together, invited speakers, a rich programme of workshops—with some focusing on the theme of deepening and broadening ecopsychology practice, open spaces for spontaneous offerings & Jess Tanner visiting environmental artist, supporting our creativity.”
