Over the last year I’ve created two new online courses to add to those that already exist (see here). That was before my internet went down for nine weeks! – but that’s a different story.
Beginning in August 2020 and repeated later in 2020 and also in 2021 (January & March; other dates tba; probably winter 21/22) is one that brings together writing practice, mindfulness practice and our relationship to each other and the rest of the natural world: Writing the Bright Moment: poetry & mindfulness. There has been wonderful feedback to date, and several people have repeated it.
I intend at some stage to create a Part 2 focusing on prose & memoir.
In the spring of 2021 Poetry & the Ensouled Life emerged.
I’m also working on a couple that take me back to my roots in deep ecology, soulwork and transpersonal psychology. One is a resurrection of the Myth as Metaphor workshops I led from 1991 onwards, and out of which grew my first commissioned book, Riding the Dragon – myth & the inner journey. Another will be announced nearer the time.
The online yearlong Tongues in Trees course, which has been an exciting and rewarding project, and part of the inspiration for my A Spell in the Forest book, is on hold, as I enter a new phase of my life that will allow me more time for my own writing, and for a big new permaculture, forest gardening and rewilding project.
