participant quote..

 wanted to write to thank you again for a wonderful 3 days. I had an amazing time with you, so much information and nuance of detail.

I came away with a strong sense of resonance both physically and philosophically. I felt moved by your expertise and skills each day. Reflecting on my contact with teachers and practitioners in my professional work and own studies over the past 10 years, I really wanted to say you are an exceptional teaching team and it's a privilege to have had this time with you, teaching of this calibre I think is scarce.

I would love to engage in more learning, training and listening to you both - I have felt quite uninspired by the values and aesthetic ideologies I encounter in my daily work of late - so your inspiration is a real gift.

Luke Pell (former Education manager Candoco)
