KINSHIP 2018: a review

  2018 is coming to an end. I’m in France for Christmas and have been walking in the woods in grey and wet weather. Weather always looks worse from indoors. When you’re out, it’s something else. I learned a lot this year from being outside. In September 2017 I trialled a residential version of Kinship…

WILD PLACES: Upper Calder Valley, Yorkshire

In November I went up to Hebden Bridge to visit and walk with my friends Rob and Charlie. They have started an artist-led project called Wainsgate Dances at Wainsgate Chapel in Old Town, Hebden Bridge. I’d love to organise a workshop up there so Rob and I walked up onto the hills to see what…

NEW WORKSHOP: Dartmoor 20-24 May 2019

It gives me great pleasure to announce another Dartmoor workshop in May 2019. This will be the third year running that Kinship has been hosted in this beautiful place. I’m excited to introduce another group to Blissmoor. You can read about last year’s workshop HERE. Kinship workshops are led by myself, however, each iteration happens…

ROUND-UP: Cych Valley & Pembrokeshire Coast 2018

The last Kinship Workshop of the year in Pembrokeshire ended almost a month ago and now Autumn feels like it’s heading to Winter: the clocks have changed and the long nights have started… but in the past few days I have been in touch with some of the participants and this week together is still…

ROUND-UP: Epping Forest KINSHIP WEEKEND 2018

This was such a short weekend, but oh so sweet… I’m just always surprised and reassured by how sensitive we are, what small things we notice, our capacity to feel in the context of being in a landscape. And then I wonder why we ignore these things habitually. Kinship Workshops attempt to support individuals to…

KINSHIP WEEKEND: Epping Forest 15&16 September 2018

Epping Forest is a 2400 hectare ancient woodland on the border of Greater London and Essex, easily reached via the London Underground. It’s a stunning area with both woodland and meadow that’s home to a variety of wildlife including Fallow and Muntjac deer. It is possible to travel from London for each day but it’s…

WILD PLACES: South West Waters

In these last few weeks I’ve been attending workshops in Devon and Cornwall. This year I decided to spend more time in water exploring this love I have for being in and under it. I wanted to dig deeper into what I love about it and simply to spend more time in water. That’s something I…

NEW KINSHIP WORKSHOP: Cych Valley and Pembrokeshire Coast 1-5 October 2018

I’m thrilled to announce the next residential Kinship will be in the beautiful Cych Valley and Pembrokeshire & Cardiganshire coast. The Cych Valley is the meeting place of the three counties of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire in South-West Wales. The Cych River passes next to the village of Abercych where we will have our home…

WILD PLACES: Underneath

This year, I wanted to try Freediving. While in Thailand in January, I did my first course with my friend Petra in Koh Tao with Apnea Total. I couldn’t complete a second course out there as I had some middle ear problems. In June I went to Malta to finish it up the second course…
