Creative Retreats in the Scottish Borders

Early bird Discount for September retreat until end May 2024 and first retreat special price for the May retreat – 450 shared accommodation/600 single room residential.

During the last three years, I have been spending time in the Borders, walking, writing, drawing, taking photographs, foraging, reflecting, practising in the woods. It is another special place in Scotland. It gave me the chance to reconnect deeply with my creative soul and play, explore, be curious, inspired. I would like to share with you ways of reconnect/ connect with your creative soul, or simply nourish it and go back refreshed. We will explore; walk, observe; take photos; write; draw; make home remedies. As much or as little of it all. Have interesting conversations. We may notice what grows and what one may be drawn to make from it, or how one is inspired to connect to what is in the surroundings, playing with responding spontaneously to what calls us to tune into our inspiration, intuition, and imagination from whichever direction it may come. You may join in all the suggested activities, suggest others, or simply use the time and space to explore, rest, have interesting conversations or something else. What nourishes us? How do we feel inspired? There are lovely walks around the area, or if you wish you can sit by the fire in the beautiful home. I I will be happy to suggest/join in walks in the local area.
Vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided. We cook together, recipes and ingredients are provided.
The retreat is in a beautiful eco house up a farm track, which offers a modern and spacious venue for this. Accommodation is in comfortable rooms, one has a double bed, two have beds that can be set up as a Twin room or as a double bed. There is max 5 spaces in the house, and 4 more people can join, if renting your own accommodation elsewhere.
There will be breathwork and meditation sessions early morning and evening, and if the weather is on our side, yoga outside on the beautiful lawn may be possible.
Arrival is on Monday from 4 pm and departure Friday morning by 10 am.
The minimum number to go ahead is 3, in case three of you wish a single room.
Single room can be booked here. Please contact me on annamaria@bodysymphonies.co.uk for shared room 🙂

Community Coffee Morning

The Community Council is the voice of the community. We want to hear about what matters to you locally. During 2023, we’re inviting you to a series of Coffee Mornings at the Community Centre, providing an opportunity to discuss what’s good, what’s bad, and what could be improved in this part of town. Whether you’re young or old, new to the area or have lived here all your life, come and enjoy a free cuppa and cake and share your ideas.

Next Meeting of the Community Council
18th July 2023 at 7pm
Northfield & Willowbrae Community Centre

The Community Council meets in public, but it is not a public meeting. Members of the public may attend as observers and can participate in the open forum at the end. If you wish to suggest items for discussion or for any other matter, please contact the Secretary two weeks before the meeting by emailing; –
secretary@northfieldandwillowbrae.org.uk

We are currently looking to co-opt two new members to the Community Council to serve until the next elections in 2024 and would particularly like to hear from younger people and those from under-represented groups. This could be an ideal opportunity to find out if this voluntary role is for you. If you are interested, have some free time to commit and a constructive solution-based approach, we’d like to hear from you. To express interest and find out more, please contact the secretary at the email address above.

The Minutes of previous meetings and Agenda for the next, as well as updates on current CEC consultations relevant to our area can all be found on the website:- www.northfieldandwillowbrae.org.uk

The Seven Ravens

Part of Puppet Animation Festival 2023.

12th of April at 1pm.

A Raven visits a young, unhappy girl.
Why are the birds gathering?
And what is the secret that Ada learns about her past?

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the same name, this tells the story of Ada, a young girl who is unhappy at school. She is visited by a Raven and thrust into a dream world of quests, feathers and a Glass Mountain.

The audience is taken on a tiny world adventure over an extraordinary, felted landscape as Ada unlocks the secret the Raven is trying to tell her.

The Seven Ravens is a brand new and unique performance/installation by Tragic Carpet Theatre using an innovative mix of live puppetry, digital image capture, processing and display, needle felting and specially composed music and song.
