There will also be a Saturday wreath-making workshop by Catriona Andrews and a Sunday talk by Louisa Thompson-Brits on her book “Path.” Louisa Thompson-Britts is an author and outdoor swimmer. Join her for a talk inspired by her latest book, Path: A Short-Story about Reciprocity – a timeless and uplifting tale about lightness, presence, participation and moving slowly enough to pay attention and reconnect.
Louisa’s work is informed by silence and movement, by interest in deep ecology, embodiment, and art and craft that spring from our connection with nature. She writes about our common like and the rhythms and patterns that unite and define all living things.
Both events will take place in the Great Barn.
