No matter what gender we were born with or identify with, no matter our sexual orientation, we believe that we all have within us the complimentary energies of the masculine and the feminine, and that when we can find our own unique expression of these energies, and learn to dance with them, then life can become somehow more authentic and graceful.

For many of us our experience of culture, family and society, has caused us to repress or exaggerate certain aspects of these fundamental energies, and so we find it hard to live in a truly authentic way, a way that is uniquely our own.

Come and join us on Dartmoor for a fully residential weekend where we will co-create an exploration of these twin inner drives, as we seek to journey with their expression through us, and discover how they can serve us in living with purpose and soul.

Nickie and I do not offer you expertise, or answers, just a sharing of our own very personal exploration of the masculine and feminine within us, as individuals and as a couple in a committed and conscious relationship. We will hold the overarching shape of the weekend and will include times in which we will invite you to bring your own wisdom and experience to this time together, and to see what we can create collectively. You may feel that you want to offer a session in which you can share your ideas and experience, or you may have specific aspects that you would like to contribute or explore together. We are open to the weekend being created in the moment according to the unique needs and make up of the group.

We are inviting friends and colleagues to this workshop, but you are welcome to invite your friends, partners, colleagues or clients, anyone who you feel this work would speak to.

The group will be a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12, plus Nickie and Neil.

The costs for the weekend

Our philosophy is to simply ask you to pay the costs of the accommodation and food for the weekend, and our expenses. At the end we will invite you to make a gift payment to us for our facilitation, as appropriate to you and your means. The basic costs for two nights, including all food and drinks from Friday lunchtime through till Sunday afternoon, will be £150.00. We would like to offer a bursary fund for any of you who might need some financial help to enable you to be with us, and so we also invite those of you that can afford to, to make an extra payment of any amount towards that fund. If you would like to come but need some help then please do contact us and we will do our best.
