THE COURAGE TO BE – Course of 2 Weekends
Friday December 04, 2015 - Sunday December 06, 2015
Starts 19:30 on first day - Finishes 12:30 on last day
The word ‘courage’ comes from a root that means ‘heart’. Through clowning and connecting to our playful spirit we can develop and sustain, in ourselves and each other, the heart to be who we truly are, to trust life and ourselves. ‘Taking heart’ is a profoundly inward process, and an invitation to overcome the fears that block us from being fully present in the here and now.
The full course establishes the ground for all our work and is an essential first step before going on to more advanced courses.
The work, and the group, will build over the three weekends.
The group size is limited to 12.
