Training and some of my teachers

Circles – I am passionate about the power of meeting in circles and have practiced Ancient Council with Pippa Bondy.  Participating in circles has given me such a rich and deep understanding of myself and others.

Ritual – I studied with Margaret Kennnedy and took part in 10 day Ceremonies following the Sumerian legend, the Descent of Inanna.

Dreams – are a constant guide and source of wisdom to me.  I am grateful to the training in Dreamwork skills I was given with Maggie Peters.

Drama Therapy inspired me to help set up Stroud Playback Theatre Company which ran for eight years.

Community building – I am a trained teacher with Co-Counselling International.

Taijiwuxigong & Buqi Healing – My daily practice.  I have studied with Pog Eng San and Dr Shen.

Forest School – I have recently completed Leadership Training Level Three.
