Workshops for late Summer and Autumn 2014

Posted on January 28, 2014 by Saffron Craig | 3 comments

Last July on a chilly winters day I was at the ABCD meet up chatting to a friend and she asked me what my plans were for 2014? Ahrr my brain did a bit of a spin and quite honestly I replied to her that I wanted to travel around Australia teaching as I go—surprising myself at the thought.

Traveling, meeting new people and seeing the beauty of Australia are so satisfying for me and adventure is something that I needed in my life. I really did want to be out in the world teaching, sharing what I have learnt and meet people, inspiring them and have the joy to be around small groups of women and feel connected.

By the end of last year I had booked workshops around Australia and it felt pretty good looking at the dates in my dairy. For a free spirit like me I had a year planned out in front of me–something I have never done as I am really quite a spontaneous person. Though to me it feels like I am making my life in some way even freer as I venture out traveling and teaching. Now it's Summertime and I am well and truly into the year of traveling and teaching. Having visited Tumbarumba and Berry in January. Autumn is just around the corner. 

Here are my upcoming workshop dates, hopefully I am coming near you. If you are feeling like joining in please don't hesitate to book. It would be great to see you and your friends there. I promise you will learn a lot and make friends to boot. Please contact the shop or host nearest to you for any further questions.
