"I draw sweet air
Deeply and long,
As pure as prayer,
As sweet as song.
Where lilies glow
And roses wreath,
Heart-joy I know
Is just to breathe.

Aye, so I think"

Robert William Service

"In difficult times ... keep something beautiful in your heart" John O'Donovan

Through movement, stillness and creativity we will spend the day attuning our being, opening our body and senses to the world around us, taking time to notice, to touch and be touch, to hold the world in reverence.

During the time we are together we will explore Mindful Walking and sitting, a simple Yoga ritual to connect with the elements, Amerta (free-form movement), and Art-making in our 2 acre garden and in the surrounding landscape.

Our garden is a mixture of shrubs, flowers, winding walkways, hidden corners, an abundant vegetable garden and orchard, with wonderful views across the hills to the ocean in the distance.

"Let the beauty we love be what we do.

There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground" Rumi
