Iona workshop details planned for October 7th – 11th 2019.
The Iona workshop, the Way of Beauty, will be held at Iona hostel, an award winning hostel with bunk bed accommodation in rooms of 3, 4, 5, or 6 beds.
The course on Iona must have 9 participants to run, with a maximum of 12. I already have three confirmed participants.
It is a very beautiful holy Island with a great deal of history and natural beauty. It is a ‘thin’ place where your dreams and vision are likely to be enhanced.
The price is £550 per participant, which will include teaching/workshop work from 10 am – 3/4pm daily, with a short break for resting/individual work in the late afternoon or after lunch, then evening work after dinner from around 7.30 – 9.30pm. We’d arrive anytime after 2 pm on Monday October 7th (gathering for tea/introductions at 4pm), and stay there until the morning of Friday 11th October (leaving by 11am).
The workshop will focus on beauty and will include drawing, writing, painting, walking, dreaming, shamanic journeying (for those who would like it) with drumming and guidance, night/evening walks, elemental work, laughter, and time for solitude. The Island is not large or hilly so the walking is not too demanding or ever very far (although it is around 1 km+ from the jetty to the hostel on a single track level road).
This time we will bring our own food or buy from the Island shop, and either cook for ourselves or share meals/food preparation – keeping it simple.
Travel to Iona is quite easy. Train or coach to Glasgow then Oban, then ferry to Mull, bus to Fionnphort, then ferry to Iona, then walk….
By car you drive to Fionnphort (by ferry from Oban first) then park in the free car park which is 5 mins walk away from the ferry to Iona.
Combining this workshop with a little tour of Mull would make a very good trip…Mull has a very varied landscape and is very beautiful.
If you would like to book a place on this workshop please email me your confirmation ( firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will send you details for payment of the deposit.
Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. Do email me with any queries…feedback below on this blog – post October 2016.
