DECEMBER: Story up your holidays!

We all look forward with anticipation to a happy holiday, but what helps this vision to come true? Using the frame of cross-cultural understanding, Joanna Sell helps us to discover how stories can help us to create new connections and traditions with family and friends. We'll be sharing stories of the holidays and experiencing story circles as a way of working with them.

DECEMBER 27 open circle: A time of story & ceremony

What do you most long for?

If you are feeling a longing for connection, warm intimacy and a blend of comfort and wildness, you are not alone. At the end of this rollercoaster of a year and after a time of family and festivities, we invite you back to the fire.

Join us for a time of story and ceremony, where we'll blend sacred space with sharing our hearts. We'll remember where we've been and dream about the future. We'll practice human being-ness together.

The universe is waiting to hear you say who you are. And we can't wait to see you.


There is no charge for this event. We have space for a maximum of 50 participants. Claim your space now!

FEBRUARY: Love, Kindness & other treasures

Stories shape who we are and how we meet the world. We've been through a time of frightening and challenging stories, but what if we told more stories about love and kindness? The Greeks have eight words that cover all aspects of love. Come experience the brave heart and storytelling talents of Noa Baum, storyteller, author & coach and find out how life can lead you into the fires of love and through the challenges of life with friendship, kindness, learning and wonder.
