Designing, planning, and facilitating workshops and retreats. I offer specific workshops, and can design new workshops to meet your particular needs.
I am available to come to your community to facilitate a workshop, retreat, or other event. Most workshops can be tailored in length (and somewhat in content) to the requirements of your event or
group. I am also happy to develop a new workshop for your particular group or event. I love to work with groups and communities to develop
workshops and retreats to meet your particular spiritual needs.
is too small. In larger workshops, it's harder to do intimate work, but we do break into smaller groups.
What do I need? I generally require travel reimbursement; a mold-free, relatively dust-free and fragrance-free place to stay if you're too far away from Edinburgh for me to go and come back in one day; and a stipend for my time. It is also very helpful for me to have an "elder" or companion in the ministry from your community to help anchor my work and orientate me to practical details.
Specific workshops and retreats I offer include:
Singing the Goddess
The Goddess can be a powerful experience for Friends. Magic can be a powerful tool for transformation and change -- spiritual, personal, political, cultural. We’ll spend time with the Goddess in nature, ourselves, and each other, and working with magic as a spiritual and creative discipline. All genders welcome.
Winter Solstice Celebrations; A Winter Solstice Singing Ritual
Sacred Handwork: Handwork in the Light and Handwork as Ministry (for Friends); Handwork as Magic (for Pagans)
Every Quaker Has a Place in This Meeting
Three Friends walk into Meeting for Worship: a Christian, a Pagan, a Jew, a Buddhist, a Non-Theist. Each gives vocal ministry from their own experience; all experience gathered worship. Come create the rest of the story: coming together, supporting each other, building community, helping each other sing in our own unique voices, singing in harmony.

Come create the rest of the story: coming together, supporting each other, building community, helping each other be faithful, speaking explicitly.
