I am very pleased to be working with The OceanTree again this year. Meeting Menopause is a weekend retreat for women that I will be co-facilitating from 1-3rd May 2020 with my long time friend and brilliant coach, yoga teacher and wise woman Fiona Bibby. We will be combining our skills and using the story “Seal Skin Soul Skin” from Clarrissa Pinkola Este’s seminal “Women that Run With The Wolves” as a framework, to offer what we hope will be a really empowering, thoughtful and insightful weekend retreat.
We are so excited to announce that Life Growing Up, our film about the stories of young people growing up with HIV, has been shortlisted for the Charity Film Awards. The second stage of voting starts now, so please add your vote here.
Great to watch Life Growing Up Screened at the Global Health Film Festival with co-writer Danny Scheinmann and producer Tamsin Herbert, and was honoured to be part of a panel discussion following the screening.
We are excited to announce that our film Life Growing Up made for UK children’s HIV charity CHIVA, has been selected for the 2019 Global Health Film Festival. It will take place on Friday 06 and Saturday 07 December, in Bloomsbury, central London, bringing together 500 health advocates, filmmakers, journalists and the public for discussion and debate in all areas of global health.
Participating and facilitating (storytelling and voice embodiment work) at Oceantree’s Time Out for Time In retreat was a real treat! Their retreats create the time, space and energy to dive deep into your development. They facilitate your connection to what matters most to you and to make a positive impact in the world. The ancient wisdom we find in stories in this context is inspirational, and creates a fantastic framework for enquiry.
Emotional responses to todays performance of Life Growing Up at the CHIVA annual families conference. Thank you again to the yong people who shared their stories and to our brilliant performers, Jack James Ryan, Maia Watkins, Alistair Nwachuwku, Anneka Gouldbourne, Fejiro Emasiobi and musician Aga Serugo Lugo.
