Sempervivum, 4th to 11th April 2009
Roots and Shoots
Tap in to the greening energy of spring, and release your creative spirit by being fully present in the moment. Sempervivum this year is a celebration of the vital spark which regenerates and enlivens us all. The focus is on community building through creative collaborations and gentle self-enquiry, providing a safe open environment in which to connect with the self and others in a real way. A wide range of activities and workshops are on offer, generated by participants themselves and members of the Laurieston community. Last year these included: singing and song writing, an art exhibition in the woods, making fire sculptures along the river, spoken word and music performance, open-air poetry, stand-up comedy and cabaret, Taizé and peace dances, yoga and circle dance, an equinox bonfire celebration and a labyrinth in the landscape. The vibe is playful and adventurous – you may be inspired to try out something new and discover a hidden talent!
