Spiritual exploration: short courses, workshops and groups
In conjunction with the Centre for Spiritual Exploration and Accompaniment (or CSEA), I offer a series of spiritual exploration workshops and groups every year. The CSEA is the educational arm of Spaceforsoul - a Bristol-based progressive spiritual community which aims to support and resource people in making their own individual spiritual journeys. It offers a range of affordable educational and personal and spiritual growth opportunities.
You can find further information about Spaceforsoul and the CSEA at www.spaceforsoul.org.uk
If you would like to be put on my mailing list for future workshops and groups, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

My background and experience
I have been involved in teaching and group facilitation of varying kinds since the mid-1970s. I am an experienced workshop leader and have led courses and workshops in a variety of settings and for people working in a variety of different roles. I also have substantial experience of facilitating groups of varying kinds – for example, support groups, therapeutic groups, personal growth and encounter groups, spiritual exploration and meditation groups.
My approach as a teacher and group facilitator is fundamentally a person-centred one. I believe that we learn and grow best when we encounter an environment in which we feel accepted, valued, heard and understood; in which we are free to be ourselves and to express our own unique experiences and perspectives; and in which we are able to voice and find ways of meeting our own particular needs. I am committed, therefore, to creating a safe space that enables us to learn from each other’s experience, to draw on each other’s gifts and resources and to facilitate each other’s learning and growth.
