Living Creativity

Adorning equines with a mindful, respectful, honouring and celebratory intention is an ancient tradition going back 1000’s of years. Non-toxic paint, natural pigments and feathers are provided, if you feel drawn to adorning one or more of the herd. The equines are at liberty at all times and free to choose to collaborate in artwork or not.

During this workshop you can create art in your own medium, in the environment, on yourselves or on and with the equines. You are welcome to bring your own materials and we ask you bring your own sketchpad, pencils/paints. You are welcome to take photo’s of any of the transient artwork, before it is either washed away of left in the environment.’

Two Ash-Labyrinth

Walking the Labyrinth

Do you want clarification of an issue, dilemma or question? Come meet the herd and spend time connecting with the horses and the land. Choose your equine companion and walk the labyrinth together in contemplation seeking clarity for your ongoing journey.

The classic ancient labyrinth was not a maze to get lost in. It had only one path, traversing all parts of the figure. Such labyrinths were meant for ceremonial walking. Symbolically it is seen as a return to the centre, a movement into death and being reborn or going inwards and then outwards.

For:
Anybody wanting to experience working with Labyrinths. 6 hour CPD certificate issued. 4 to 6 group size.

Date and Time:
Saturday 9th June 2018
Arrival 9.45am
Workshop: 10 am to 4pm
