Living Softly

What does it mean to live softly?

It’s the opposite of how most of us live: efforting, fighting, resisting.

At the heart of this workshop is the belief that when we learn how to let go of the idea that life is hard, we can end the struggle and create a life that works.

Based on a forthcoming book of the same name, our three sessions will help you:

Over the three session there’ll be insight, inspiration – and the fun you’d expect from an approach that is all about lightening up! This workshop is for anyone who has ever found themselves wondering why life is so hard. Come and learn to let go and flow!

How much does it cost and how long is it?

The course costs £100 and is spread over 3 days with sessions of about 3 hours.
