Vitality, laughter and creativity, three of the consistent elements of a Steps on the Croft active retreat using the power of silent presence, games, exercises and exploration in the ever-changing environment of our croft on Skye.
The events on the croft give time and guidance for making, outdoor activity, conversations, time to get to know ourselves and each other and time just to breathe, relax and enjoy Skye out of time.
Events and Active Workshops 2016
weaving life/weaving words 01/04/16 – 03/04/16
Explore the Steps on the Croft exercises with Helen on Skye in the early Spring and also experience a taste of Shiatsu & Reiki. We will use our island Black House (Tigh Dubh), the Armadilla pod and our croft walk. This weekend our artist is the poet, Mark O. Goodwin (see People button on the website). Mark will help us explore our connection between our inner selves and the world beyond via the physicality of poetry. Like snails moving across the page, we each create our own trail of discovery. Expect to be amazed at Mark’s Dadaist word game. We will take a walk on the croft and experience a sense of place through detailed observation. Then you will see how to transfer this experience into the place of a poem. Chris will help to bring our explorations together on the Sunday. And of course, there is always the traditional music session at the Edinbane Inn on the Sunday afternoon. If you’re staying in one of our cottages, you would be very welcome to stay on Sunday night for no extra charge.
