I’m just a little bit overwhelmed and relieved to finally be able to offer you this marvellous weekend.
This offering (if I’m honest), was born out of a growing dissatisfaction and frustration with the dogmatic and overwhelmingly unsupportive world of yoga. Personally I began to feel very isolated, misunderstood, exhaustingly confused about what I wanted to teach and who would want to learn from me. I wanted to investigate if and how yoga still served me in my life beyond the landscape of what I was experiencing.
‘What if we could use yoga and these beautiful, sacred practices as a springboard for further exploration into our unique and hard wired need for creativity and self expression?’
It’s with great joy that I can now offer you this weekend which will be rich with ritual, song, movement, writing, discussion and beautiful profound company.
It will be unlike anything else I’ve ever organised, I can feel that in my bones!
Is this for you?
Do you wonder what yoga has to do with anything?
Do you find yourself wondering often if you still want to teach?
Do you wonder regularly if you’re doing it all wrong?
Do you find yourself thinking regularly that there must be more to it?
Do you ever feel stuck/ bored/ rebellious/ isolated/ like the black sheep and like you often want to scream endlessly into your pillow at the thorough dissonance of it all?
Do you want to explore and learn and grow as a person both within and outside of the world of yoga and not feel so endlessly squeezed and labelled?
Do you find that you give so generously but feel not so much comes back?
Do you crave more support, more feedback from others who are further down the line but yet still feel that you have something to offer if only there were a community that welcomed you and valued you uniquely?
Then this is probably for you.
Facilitators are still to be announced but rest assured they’ll be pretty amazing. Naturally. x
About Florence House
On the brow of Seaford Head, Sussex, sits Florence House; rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. In many ways its situation is a metaphor for its life’s purpose – a haven for the spirit however the wind blows. It lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the sacredness and potential of each individual and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits.
The beautiful interior of the house itself, the abundant gardens, the proximity to the sea and the wildness of the Downs, make Florence House an ideal setting for our wolfpack gathering .
Florence House can accommodate 24 people and there are a choice of rooms from singles to triples based on your needs. All bedrooms have lovely scenic views either of the Downs or the Estate.
The venue supplies all bedlinen and towels.
As much as possible all the food is grown within the gardens or locally sourced. It is all vegetarian and super delicious and nutritious.
