79.00

In this 90 minute online masterclass on Thursday 09 December at 17.00 hrs (CET – Amsterdam) with guest teacher Jo-Anne Sunderland Bowe we will explore the ways in which we can use the practice of slowing down or slow listening to engage with the senses and make connections to objects.
We will start with Christmas-themed text to transport us back to the court of King Arthur and the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
During the session we will use mindful practices to make connections across different materials such as text, images, objects with our senses, through touch, sounds and smell.
