A whole glorious day of letting-go in the safety and serenity of Tofte Manor. 

Building confidence, breathing, creating, dance movements, harmonising, bonding, laughing - being more than you ever knew you could be!


JACK TAYLER, inspirational dancer, will lead you in a series of life enhancing dance movements for all abilities including an African Healing Dance! A worship for the body, healing and harmony. In past times spiritual leaders in Africa were healers and believed dancing blindfold to percussion and focusing on breathing was a blind date with the unknown, an inner journey to strength and wellbeing.

(we won't be blindfolding you though)

​Deep Listening:

EMMA DAVIES, glorious musician in her final year studying for her MA, will introduce us to 'deep listening'. A sound meditation which is both healing and deeply peaceful, opens the senses, expands breathing and brings serenity. There is talk of a 'humming forest' which sounds fascinating!




gifted musician, teacher and all round good egg will help you to let go of any remaining reservations with humour and by using breathing exercises, singing rituals and patterns to strengthen breath, relax body and mind and tickle your happy endorphins by responding vocally to music.


KATE DAVIES, creator of Art & Soul, will be guiding the artistic practices in which to lose yourself further. Following an explore of the beautiful grounds, we will be considering the mind's eye, how we can look at the world differently using different angles and by drawing in response to how you see and feel. No artistic ability required just curiosity and a willingness to give it a go!

Candlelit Labyrinth

As evening draws in, we will light our candles and walk the Tofte Labyrinth in meditation, setting our intentions and listening to the night.


The day will culminate with everyone gathering around the fire-pit to raucously  sing, dance, drum and burn negativity!
