The Call of the Wild Twin

The Call of the Wild Twin – no more Miss Nice Girl (or Boy)!

10-12th July 2015

When did you first start to prize being good, likeable and reliable above letting all yours dimensions out to play in a ferocious burst of creativity? When did you become cautious and sensible when part of you wants to rush headlong into the gaping wolf-jaws of life and hang the consequences?

For most of us it starts happening as early as 5 years old. And continues throughout our lives.

There’s a belief in old stories that we are all born with a ‘Wild Twin’ – a glorious, shameless, valiant, swaggering pirate,  who runs at life and devours it. And sometimes we glimpse it in ourselves, but often put it away for another day.

This weekend course is an invitation, in fact a Summons – you are summoned to dive in headlong and re-acquaint yourself with your Wild Twin.  Dip a toe in at least, it’s up to you. And then incorporate them back into your life, however you wish.  Are you up for this Call to Adventure? It’s Time…

You will drum under the stars, hear stories, re-write your own story, laugh, dance, feast, hear the call of the wild – respond and explore what it means. You are in safe hands as you journey into the remoter regions of your imagination.

‘Creativity and Misrule within a Structure’ is our speciality.

Weekend starts with a light supper at 7pm on Friday, we leave at 4pm Sunday

Cost: £275.00

Special Offer: Bring a friend and save £30 each!

‘Tom and Dawn were very experienced and present and knew the various paths available to give us the best possible experience. They set up our adventure well on the Friday night.The Friday night story bonded us  and the drumming set the scene.

The Wild Twin was new to me – so that was stimulating and enjoyable to see it unfold! Indeed, now 3  days later my imagination and stories are still coming to me… I so enjoyed the heroine characters and the boldness of it all.The feasting and revelries were right up my street. 

The venue is set in beautiful english countryside, wild, peaceful and spacious.’ Liz Calvert

‘I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the storytelling weekend. Having arrived with great intrepidation and fear I found that I quickly dropped into being in the group and relaxed enough to let myself  flow. Even better, I started to enjoy the flow. Haven’t experienced that for some time now. I have rediscovered a voice and strength ensnared in the bramble thickets, stuck in the muddy mier of my mind. My Wild Twin has come out to play, and play she will/is!’ Sarah Partridge, Orchard Barn Community Development
