Create Community You’ll Be Proud Of: Art of Mentoring

The Art of Mentoring in 2022 was cancelled, and we do not have capacity to run one in 2023. We are holding a flame within us for organizing an Art of Mentoring in the UK in 2024.
We deeply treasure coming together in this way around a collective heart and are listening for the needs and capacity at this time. 

Do you long to create, connect and belong?

Experience the creative community your heart longs for,  join people of all ages and abilities to learn creative ways of vibrant connection with nature, yourself and each other. Find freedom to share your stories and embrace your gifts, supported by capable and caring mentors. Feel the beauty when you speak your truth with courage and authenticity.
