Champernowne Course

18:00 Friday 19th November to

16:00 Sunday 21st November

Exploring psychological, spiritual and ethical issues through the arts.

“Only a society that can preserve its internal cohesion and collective values, while at the same time granting the individual the greatest possible freedom has any prospect of enduring vitality”. C.G.Jung

A little about the weekend …

This weekend will centre upon the theme of: ‘Alone and Together’.

We hope that you will join us and dive in for this weekend online course. As we weave our way through an interactive blend of mythical story, image, dream, movement, drama, music, writing and voice explorations, we aim to offer a taste of our well-established and enriching residential experience underpinned by the ideas of CG Jung.

Blended to nourish soul and psyche, the course will be led by experienced creative and therapeutic professionals who will facilitate reflections on the individual and collective experience, and support creative exploration of this very poignant theme in the light of the current global pandemic.

In this unique online platform, you can freely interact as you wish at tables for small group chat and private conversations. From inspiring talks and discussions, both formal and informal, to arts workshops, social dreaming matrix, webcam art studio and online gallery, we hope to restart, replenish and explore internally, externally and individually as part of the Champernowne community.
