Kinship Workshops take participants into rural landscapes to spend time in nature. The focus of the work is how somatic and embodied experiencing can facilitate change in the way we relate to nature, landscapes and other animals.

Kinship Workshops focus on the resourcing of, and investment in our relationship to other forms of life including landscape, plants and animals. This can inspire active responses to concerns around environment, wildlife decline, consumption and climate change. This is done through body and movement practices that take place both indoors and outdoors.

Most workshops are residential – taking place in rural or wild landscapes. Each day starts with a physical warm-up, a movement session and exercises to tune the senses before heading out into landscapes that have less human intervention and structure to share space with wild and/or free-roaming animals, and plant-life.

Cooking and domestic tasks are shared communally. Evening activities may include discussion and sharings.
