NEW WORKSHOP – Exploring Directions with the Heart with Roger Kidd

“The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing”.  Pascal.

The indirect nature of the directions in this workshop is designed to help deepen a non-doing approach and build bridges between implicit and explicit knowledge.

You will learn simple structured layers of practice for you, and your students, exploring ways to engender self acceptance and compassion.
In gentle, safe and respectful steps you will explore conversations between your hands, your head and your heart.
You will learn this practice for yourself, and have the opportunity to practise with the other participants.

“ To labour you need to work with your hands, to craft you need your hands and head, to be an artist you need your hands, head and heart.


Past teacher’s workshops have included one with Missy Vineyard, author of a ‘How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live’; Lucia Walker, dance teacher and specialist in improvisation and many others.
We also offer workshops run by our LCATT team of teachers on different topics, often related to the theme we are working on in the training course, so that they can, for interest, be combined with a visit to the school.
