Some previous events
9-11 June 2017 – Living Spirituality Creative Conversations workshop. Thirsk, N. Yorks.
In this workshop we explored how we become aware of the creative nature of conversations in our daily lives and in the lives of those we engage with. Starting with our own story, we used creative arts, liturgy and reflective engagement to find fresh ways of developing communities of creative conversation. The Holy Rood gardens played a part in the event, as well as a visit to the hills at Sutton Bank.
25 September 2016 – Living Spirituality Connections annual partnership event with St James’s, Piccadilly, London W1: launch of Experiencing Music – Restoring the Spiritual: Music as Wellbeing by Rev Dr June Boyce-Tillman. Rowan Williams has said: “This book is an astonishing achievement ….. Learning to sing is ….. connecting with the world we inhabit in a fresh and life-giving way. A deeply enriching study.”
The event included some singing and refreshments afterwards.
