Simon is the key facilitator although it is held with a strong leaning towards a peer collaboration

Simon is highly intuitive and congruent with the practice of Embodied Relational Presence and works live to follow your needs directly, both of the group and individual. Fun, play, safety, small group meetups, plenaries, interactive, emergent, exciting, community together-orientated and totally live is my style. There is plenty of room to process – there will be conscious pauses to breathe and settle, to savour the experience and deepen connection – and enjoy connecting and learning in an easy and relaxed way.

About living in the gift – the amount you give is up to you, perhaps taking into account

(a) your sense of gratitude with what you receive from the event,

(b) how much you might pay elsewhere for something similar,

(c) what you can afford, and

(d) your desire to support this work in the world.
