I usually have one or two places for mentoring, or distance learning courses. However, until Christmas 2019 I’m focusing mainly on my own writing.

See also thewildways.co.uk. 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.
