My upcoming workshops have finally taken shape and are always listed on my Instagram and on this website on the Workshops page. It was wonderful to teach in person with the Dark Mountain Project this week at Schumacher College. We dug wild earths, listened with our hands and paid attention to what the more than human world wanted to say. Thanks to all who came.
