Informed by Amerta Movement, experiential anatomy,
connection with nature, each other and ourselves.

Amerta is a free-form movement practice, where you can move exactly as you wish to. There are no set steps to learn or someone else's movement to follow. I will give guidance during the workshop to  support participants to evolve their existing movement patterns.

Amerta movement workshop

Sunday 28th November

An Sanctoir, Ballydehob


A day of embodied presence through movement.



Guided explorations focusing on our relationship with yourself, others and

our environment through present moment connection with body, mind and heart.

There will be time for moving with yourself, in duos or small groups, and time to

connect with the space. Weather permitting there will be time for outdoor work.

This is a profoundly moving work. I have been practicing Amerta for 24 years

always deeply touched by what arises.

- It can be playful: much like being an inquisitive child again, we explore and learn through

following our impulses.

- it can be insightful: most of our communication occurs through the body. It is a form of

connection that is always honest, and revealing.

- It is always moving; there is often a lot of laughter, sometimes tears, and an arising of

tenderness, openess and compassion.

Whether you are an experienced mover, or entirely new to this kind of work, but have an interest

 self-discovery and being connected with the world in a more open and present way, you are very

welcome to join me on this day of discovery.

Location - Woodland, mountainside and stone circle,

The Ring of Beara, Kerry (half an hour from Kenmare)


This will be a full day immersion into moving in/with nature,

through the practice of Amerta movement: Being with

natural structures and the elements to open up our

movement, expression, receptivity, senses and connection

with land.

We will explore personal themes arising from being with the landscape, as well as being given movement tools to

help you to have a fully embodied experience of connecting with land:

  • opening to sensing through the whole body: listening, seeing and touch

  • receiving atmosphere

  • finding anchors and not getting 'lost'

  • speaking and receiving - the art of expression has receiving and receiving has expression

  • physical tools of moving on different levels, exploring angles and planes of perception and stopping to support receiving, recognising, connecting and blossoming.

  • landscape supporting our growth and blossoming and our presence in landscape as an offering to support its blossoming.


Morning: Woodland,  (earth, roots, rock). Walking, moving, writing in woodland. Time with the group, then time alone.

Lunch: shared picnic.

Afternoon: Stone circle (earth, rock, wind, sky). Walking, moving, sharing through talking. Witnessing movement. 

Movement workshop in nature
Next event early summer 2022

Location: Beach in West Cork.


We will move together as well as having time alone, to explore the landscape and

atmosphere where land and water meet. Through embodied listening and sensing,

we will experience how different elements and terrains affect and inform our movement

and affect our own inner world. How we can be present and listen, receive and connect

with the natural world, hear it’s voice, it’s rhythms, feel it’s textures and in return our

movement can speak back. We can be in embodied, conscious relationship with the

world, each other and ourselves.


Themes for the day

  • Rhythm and time/timing

  • Fluidity and solidity

  • Listening as an embodied experience

  • Offering back / prayer and ritual

General practicalities for outdoor workshops

  • Dress warmly for the Irish weather and uneven ground. Sturdy boots are recommended. Bring waterproofs (to keep dry in case of light rain, and to sit on)

  • Bring a notebook and pen and art materials if you wish.

  • Bring lunch to share

  • All are welcome, though there may be rough ground, so some people may not find outdoor work accessible.

  • After booking you will receive the practical details including directions.

  • Because of not wanting to take up excessive space in public car parks, and environmental sensitivity, car-pooling is encouraged. 

  • Please no dogs or children

  • In case of bad weather an alternative date will be scheduled. If you are unable to make the new date, then you will be offered a refund.
