UPCOMING COURSES & WORKSHOPS:

Beginning November 13th 2023 - 4th cohort
SOMATIC SORCERY
A 7 week online course hosted by The Blackthorne School.
Have you ever felt there must be more to experience through your body? That it has some super-senses somewhere that you’d like to have access to? Do you want to know more about yourself and who you truly are, the mythic forms that are living through you? Would you like to feel more connection with other bodies –human and also rocks and trees, or animals and oceans, stars – connecting and aligning with creative inspiration and the greater forces that move us all?


Everything is pre-recorded for you to work with in your own pace and space, and you'll have access to the materials always.
