27th 7-9.30pm Open Floor Dance

28th 9.30am-4pm ReSOURCE Workshop


Open Floor and the Work That Reconnects.

A day workshop to guide us through a spiral of gratitude, honouring pain and empowerment

- Deepen and extend your capacity to move

- Practise using feelings as fuel for your creativity

- Build community and have fun together

- Learn more about the Great Turning, a possible story for our time.






We are living in interesting times. On one hand it is hard to ignore aspects of collapse, loss of species, changes in climate, wars and the blind devotion to the "economy" over and above all else. Equally we are a part of a collective awakening. Humans of all cultures and ages are questioning the beliefs and behaviours handed down to them.  It is a time of increasing awareness, empowerment, building community and resourcing ourselves for the more beautiful world we know is possible. There is gravity and grace, a pivot point for the human race.

One of the key skills we aspire to grow is a trust in the power and validity of our feelings. Yet we live in a culture that does not encourage the exploration nor the possibility that feelings are guides and sources of creative energy. In each of us there is a gift for our world, ReSource is will help you find it.
