Greetings and Gratitude

    Happy 2018 Wonderful Facilitators, Teachers, Group Leaders and Interested People. Welcome to my first eNews for the year and especially welcome to all who I met in India recently at IPC (International Permaculture Conference and Convergence).
     I've had a very busy year last year and am calling 2018 "The Year of the Books" as I have a very strong intention to have the first two mini books I'm working on out as hard copy and eBooks this year.
     There are articles in this eNews recounting my involvement in IPC India and also a focus on the courses I did in Switzerland in June. I've also written some information about the foundations of group culture and updated you with my course dates for 2018 and how Patreon is going as a wonderful platform to support me financially to get the books created and out to you.
     Thank you so much for being on this journey with me and supporting a better world through creative, dynamic, interactive and successful group work, education and learning.
     I trust you are already having a wonderful year.

Foundations of a Healthy Group Culture


A healthy, solid and nurturing foundation is important for any group to grow and achieve it’s vision and purpose. Beyond our groups, organisations, teams, businesses and workplaces, we  can also say the same thing for relationships of all kinds – with our partners, family members and most importantly, with ourselves.  Read more here...

Spiral Labyrinths for Community and Personal Ceremony + Damanhur


Robin’s Sacred Union Labyrinth design is now know to many, having been created as an art and ceremony instillation at Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland these last five years. Robin woke up in a huge rainstorm one morning in January 2011 with the image in her mind. She attributes Labyrinth maker Mark Healy as being a spark of inspiration for her to conceive this design.  Read more here...

"Thank you so much for all of your brilliant work Robin! It impacts many lives in a very positive way. I also just want to say that I am so glad that I did the training with you.  I wish more people in the UK could have received it.  My facilitation skills have soared and I am utilising new tools with much success.  I know that many people are benefiting from this and am very grateful that you are doing what you are doing to spread these useful ways of working.  
With thanks x"
