So what is Space to Emerge?
It seems that every day more and more happens in our world to un-ground us, and to make us question the sanity of humanity.
Challenges in our own lives present themselves and we may struggle to find a way through them.
We often feel alone, exhausted, wondering what the meaning of it all is.
Things that used to make sense to us are falling away and leaving us with more questions than answers, more confusion than clarity around important aspects of our lives.
But it doesn't have to be this way
There is a world where we are alongside people who see as we see, think as we think and feel as we feel.
A world where we can gather to heal, learn, grow, and comfort each other.
Where we can sing, dance, laugh, cry, rest, get creative and try our hand at learning new, yet ancient skills.
A world where we can immerse ourselves in the beauty of nature and hear the whispers of our inner knowing.
Where things become much clearer because we see others sharing in our collective pain for humanity and for the Earth.
Where we can see in front of us the next step in our path and know that we are supported and amongst friends as we take those strides.
How about if we said that you could find answers in those woods which have been calling you?
In these challenging times we can find solace with each other, held by nature.
Why not run away with us for the weekend and together we can support each other in hearing the answers?
Why not give yourself some Space to Emerge.
Here are just a few of the things that people have loved about Space to Emerge:
