Delighted to have the privilege of being the first featured poet for a new series on poetry & the sacred on the Abbey of the Arts website.

There are a number of new one-day workshops happening, mostly in Devon, mainly outdoors, this spring and summer.

My latest book A Trick of the Light – poems from Iona collects together between two covers the many poems I’ve written in my 18 years of leading annual retreats on the sacred Isle of Iona, and one or two from visits prior to that.

I’m really excited about this collection, as Iona is very close to my heart. You can read reviews and order the book on the above link.



The ISLANDS OF THE HEART retreats on the beautiful Isle of Iona: I’ve added a new week for September 2019; there are a few places available.
