Sunday 25 June / 2-5pm

How can we draw from soil ecosystems to aid us in processes of decay, grief and death? Can we build interdependency, like mycelium, as we collectively turn towards a more life-sustaining society?

This workshop will be a chance to join Amy Dakin Harris in her ongoing research on the violence of climate crises and to participate in collective grief rituals. Inspired by Joanna Macy’s book ‘Coming Back to Life’, there will be invitations to participate in embodied meditation, gentle movement, and a herbal tea ceremony. This will be a space for personal reflection and group sharing .

No prior movement experience is required to participate, and all movement is optional. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Travel and childcare bursaries are available, please get in touch to request them at

Although this is a one-off workshop, Amy hopes that a longer-term practice group can be formed in order to process these themes in more depth. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining long term but cannot make this session.
