course calendar

home and the heart

NB that from October 2019 to the end of 2020 I’m focusing on 3 aspects only of my work: the Islands of the Heart courses on Iona, the distance learning Tongues in Trees course and an ecosoul project, and completing a book on trees and its companion book on the Lost Feminine.


Tongues in Trees, (The Wild Ways). New one began on the winter solstice 2019 for all of 2020. Excellent feedback. NEXT ONE: winter solstice 2020 for all of 2021.

See also Bear in mind that all courses are holistic in nature, and there is a great deal of overlap between the content of this site and The Wild Ways.

The courses generally all include other aspects of being: our inner/soul life and our relationship to the outer world, especially the rest of nature, are inherent parts.
