By bringing them into contact with each other, and with a range of artists, musicians and craftspeople, we hoped to broaden the scope of opportunities open to them and to allow them to socialise, share and interact with other young people in a safe, nurturing setting.&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>We are delighted that the group are now moving on, with some of the young people attending a weekly group called The Great Tree, in the Avalon Room. A local teacher is facilitating this with support from parents of the Young People.<br> </em></p> <p>During the 2013-2014 period we worked with up to 10 Young People, aged between 10 and 14years old, on the project outlined below:</p> <p><strong><em>Exploring sustainable Communities project;<br></em></strong>This project came about as a result of a discussion with one of the Young People in the group who has aspirations to become an architect.&nbsp; The result of the discussion was that the group felt that it would be interesting to explore buildings and create models of houses of their own.&nbsp;</p> <p>Once the group had completed these, they then decided that they would like to work together to develop a model of a community, looking at infrastructure, population make up and local services. The group then went on to develop animations of plasticine characters in &lsquo;alternative&rsquo; environments.</p> <p>Glastonbury Town Council funded the cameras that were used for this project.&nbsp; One of the next steps in the project was to visit different communities and explore alternatives and possibilities for living more sustainably.&nbsp;</p> <p>We arranged an end of project visit and celebration of achievement to Hallr Wood Forest School in Charlton Mackrell, a great time was had by all, one young woman who created a wool mat whilst sitting under a tarpaulin in the rain said she never thought that she could get so much from being outside in the rain.&nbsp;</p> <p>We are now working with Hallrwoods to apply for funding for partnership work with them and opening up to all Young People aged 10 to 19years in Glastonbury and Street to carry on the vision.</p> <p><span><strong>VISITS TO THE FOUNDATION BY STUDENTS FROM COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES<br></strong></span>Bath Spa University students from the Religions and Humanities Department again came to the Foundation in March this year for a day of experiencing alternative religions and spiritual paths.

By bringing them into contact with each other, and with a range of artists, musicians and craftspeople, we hoped to broaden the scope of opportunities open to them and to allow them to socialise, share and interact with other young people in a safe, nurturing setting.&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>We are delighted that the group are now moving on, with some of the young people attending a weekly group called The Great Tree, in the Avalon Room. A local teacher is facilitating this with support from parents of the Young People.<br> </em></p> <p>During the 2013-2014 period we worked with up to 10 Young People, aged between 10 and 14years old, on the project outlined below:</p> <p><strong><em>Exploring sustainable Communities project;<br></em></strong>This project came about as a result of a discussion with one of the Young People in the group who has aspirations to become an architect.&nbsp; The result of the discussion was that the group felt that it would be interesting to explore buildings and create models of houses of their own.&nbsp;</p> <p>Once the group had completed these, they then decided that they would like to work together to develop a model of a community, looking at infrastructure, population make up and local services. The group then went on to develop animations of plasticine characters in &lsquo;alternative&rsquo; environments.</p> <p>Glastonbury Town Council funded the cameras that were used for this project.&nbsp; One of the next steps in the project was to visit different communities and explore alternatives and possibilities for living more sustainably.&nbsp;</p> <p>We arranged an end of project visit and celebration of achievement to Hallr Wood Forest School in Charlton Mackrell, a great time was had by all, one young woman who created a wool mat whilst sitting under a tarpaulin in the rain said she never thought that she could get so much from being outside in the rain.&nbsp;</p> <p>We are now working with Hallrwoods to apply for funding for partnership work with them and opening up to all Young People aged 10 to 19years in Glastonbury and Street to carry on the vision.</p> <p><span><strong>VISITS TO THE FOUNDATION BY STUDENTS FROM COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES<br></strong></span>Bath Spa University students from the Religions and Humanities Department again came to the Foundation in March this year for a day of experiencing alternative religions and spiritual paths.

Yesterday I could have sworn I saw a merlin venturing into Glastonbury Abbey grounds - it was certainly a lot smaller than a kestrel or sparrowhawk, or the crow that was busy mobbing it! And then there has been talk of ravens starting to nest again on Wearyall Hill, which is making me very eager to see one. These are both interesting &amp; challenging times for many of us on Mother Earth, as we enter the last quarter of 2012.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As for myself, I have decided to follow a lifelong passion for music once again, which will largely take me out the office - except for my work as a Director with responsibility for room hire. Replacing me as Office Manager is Jo Read, who is very talented, bright, lovely &amp; with a great deal of experience to boot! We feel really privileged she has chosen to join us. So, if you ever ring the office and hear a higher, very friendly voice (not talking about ravens or merlins), you&rsquo;ll know who it is! A very warm welcome to you, Jo.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As I mentioned in our previous newsletter this summer, there are quite a number of new courses on offer at the moment. Here is a selection of what&rsquo;s available during this autumn/winter season:&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>NEW!</em> <strong>Grow Your Own Creative Brain: Sat 3rd/Sun 4th November 2012,</strong> <strong>with Phil South.</strong></p> <p>This brand new workshop is designed to unleash the creative well-spring within! Phil has much experience in this area, particularly from the perspective of having undergone a total creative block, which has since left him yearning to study creativity &amp; why creative people's brains are different. This research convinced him that anyone can be taught to develop &amp; gain access to their own creative circuitry - their own authentic creative genius, as Phil calls it. With your tutor's expert guidance, participants can expect to learn new tools in: how to develop areas of the brain for creative thought - how to free oneself from paralysing fears blocking the process - how to interpret coded messages from the subconscious - and how to work with ideas gaining access to their secrets. No previous experience or training is necessary, simply a desire to be more creative in your own area of interest.</p> <p><a href="http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses/weekend/grow-your-own-creative-brain/index.php">http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses/weekend/grow-your-own-creative-brain/index.php</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>NEW!</em><strong> Honouring &amp; Celebrating the Masculine: Sat 10th/Sun 11th November 2012, with Siri Nirankar Singh.</strong></p> <p>Another new weekend workshop, this time specifically designed to promote &amp; foster the yogic lifestyle for men today. Siri Nirankar Singh is a teacher with many years experience, who works alongside Karta Singh, a direct student of Yogi Bhajan, and as an associate teacher trainer at the Aquarian Training Academy. This is a workshop for men to discover how to connect with masculine energy through an open heart, and to have the courage to be vulnerable. Working with Kundalini Kriya Yoga, participants will be assisted in delving inside the real man to develop the quality of transparency, work with mind/body control of the metabolism, release emotional body armour &amp; heal the heart, allowing your true potency &amp; potential to unfold. Open to all men of all ages, with no previous experience necessary.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses/weekend/honouring-celebrating-the-masculine/index.php">http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses/weekend/honouring-celebrating-the-masculine/index.php</a></p> <p><em>Siri Nirankar is also running a new, year-long training for men, starting Sat 1st June 2013.

Jeremy is an intuitive Rune Reader and Energy Healer who follows the Shamanic path, using runic energies in every aspect of his life. Living &amp; working in Glastonbury, he is much in demand. The workshop covers the history, healing and divination aspects of 'Elder Futhark' runes, considered the oldest form of runes. During the weekend, participants will develop an understanding of these ancient symbols &amp; the process of rune reading, experiencing firsthand a mystic system that can truly empower your life.</p> <p><a href="http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses/weekend/introduction-to-rune-reading/index.php">http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses/weekend/introduction-to-rune-reading/index.php</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Shamanic Craft Workshop: Sat 1st/Sun 2nd December 2012, with Shaman Smith Mark Loman.</strong></p> <p>A skilled &amp; gifted goldsmith and Shaman Smith, Mark Loman returns to run another practical, hands on workshop for those wishing to create their own sacred objects to take home with them, and use as part of their practice. Using natural materials supplied by the tutor, participants will learn how to make various shamanic tools, which may include a rattle, ongen doll or medicine bag, and are encouraged to bring personal items with them to incorporate into their new creations.

Firstly, to introduce myself, I&rsquo;m Gary - Penny&rsquo;s successor as Office Manager, extending a very warm hello to you all. Penny moved to Chichester last autumn to be closer to her family &amp; we are thrilled she is shining her wonderful, infectious light every bit as brightly &amp; industriously as a Director of the Foundation! Thank you Penny!! In addition, we have been working to develop many new courses, and to revamp the whole feeling of the place &ndash; introducing our excellent new team of &lsquo;Space Cleaners&rsquo;, husband &amp; wife team Tony &amp; Shoshana, who not only clean the toilets etc, but also smudge the rooms with sage, chant, drum &amp; invoke Spirit three times a week! It is a virtuoso performance &amp; we extend them our grateful appreciation. The Miracles, Star &amp; Avalon Rooms are all receiving new carpets this year, as well as new cushions &amp; covers, plants, furniture &amp; blinds/curtains. In addition, the Miracles Room has been been thoroughly insulated &amp; decorated a lavender colour, offset by white woodwork. We also have some stunning photographic work exhibited by Nick Edge, nature photographer, and welcome our brand new &lsquo;Artists in Residence&rsquo; MJ &amp; Dean of <em>Chants &amp; Drums</em> (despite living in BC, Canada, they are remarkably adept at travel!) visiting us this September [see below].&nbsp;For those of you interested in following us on Facebook, you might like to look at our page 'The Isle of Avalon Foundation', with a variety of shared, inspired contributions, as well as updates &amp; previews of new courses &amp; events.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/151200728239891/">https://www.facebook.com/groups/151200728239891/</a></p> <p>And next, here follows some introductory details of our new range of non-residential workshops, including two Year Long courses starting in 2013&hellip;</p> <p><strong><em>NEW! </em></strong></p> <p><strong>Sat 23<sup>rd</sup> - Mon 25<sup>th</sup> JUNE </strong></p> <p><strong>LEVEL 2 AWARD IN EFFECTIVE LISTENING SKILLS (ELSK-L2) <em>with Collette Barnard/Sweet Track Counselling</em></strong></p> <p>A new long weekend course, with CPCAB accreditation, designed to hone one&rsquo;s listening skills through improved communication skills, existing work roles, personal, helper &amp; co-worker relationships, and community relations. Participants are guided how to create a safe space for an individual to talk &amp; to allow them to talk about concerns; to understand the importance of being non-judgmental &amp; self-aware; to listen effectively &amp; to use reflection to develop effective listening skills.</p> <p><a href="http://www.sweet-track-counselling.co.uk/listening.html">http://www.sweet-track-counselling.co.uk/listening.html</a></p> <p><strong><em>Sweet Track</em></strong><em>, founded by <strong>Collette Barnard</strong></em><em>, is a centre for Psycho-spiritual education in Glastonbury, providing accredited professional counselling trainings. The courses are designed to produce an environment, a learning community, where we support the development of self-actualisatioon &amp; professionalism by integrating physical, emotional, intellectual &amp; spiritual growth. This is a path of the Heart, where every person is nurtured as a unique individual. The aim of Sweet Track is to empower people&rsquo;s spiritual identity and expression, drawing on many traditions rather than subscribing to any one path. Learning to respect &amp; encompass each other&rsquo;s differences is a core ethos.</em></p> <p><strong>Sat 14<sup>th</sup>/Sun 15<sup>th</sup> July</strong></p> <p><strong>FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS <em>with Barbara Morgan</em></strong></p> <p>After a very successful first weekend workshop in February, we welcome Barbara Morgan&rsquo;s return this July. Family Constellations - for those of you who haven&rsquo;t experienced it - is a remarkable &amp; unique approach to healing our family soul, as well as our own soul. The process is very intuitive &amp; experiential, and has been found to be particularly helpful with illness, disability, addictions, depression &amp; infertility. On the workshop, you will learn what it means to stand as a representative in someone else&rsquo;s constellation, the power of holding circle in containing energies which emerge from the constellation in the middle of the group, feel the effect of having done a constellation (as sometimes family members will too), learn how to work with intuition going beyond what is the &lsquo;right&rsquo; thing to do in any situation, and experience empathy like never before through feeling inside what it is like to be the person represented.</p> <p><a href="http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses.php?c=7">http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses.php?c=7</a></p> <p><strong><em>Barbara Morgan</em></strong><em> has been a Gestalt psychotherapist &amp; Family Constellations practitioner for 15 years. She became involved with constellation work when the founder, Bert Hellinger, first brought the work to the UK. Following his visit she studied for 3 years with Hunter Beaumont &amp; since then has attended workshops run by many of the leaders in the field, including Bert. She also attends an annual 7 day intensive in Germany. She is editor of the only English language international constellation journal, The Knowing Field.</em></p> <p><a href="http://www.theknowingfield.com">www.theknowingfield.com</a></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'comic sans ms', sans-serif; color: #800000; font-size: medium;"><em>NEW!</em></span></p> <p><strong>Sat 21<sup>st</sup>/Sun 22<sup>nd</sup> July</strong></p> <p><strong>ENCOUNTERS WITH ORBS with Manon Tromp</strong></p> <p>We are very excited about our new collaboration with Manon, who has a long &amp; extensive connection with Avalon, and works wonders with her Nature courses in the Netherlands. This new workshop introduces that awesome yet mysterious phenomenon, Orbs. Maybe, like me, you found some Orbs on photos you took with your digital camera recently, and have started wondering what they are all about. If so, this workshop is for you! With her great experience, Manon will guide you through an introduction describing what they are, and how to start working with them consciously: communicating with them, learning what lessons they bring us &amp; how we can learn from them. The weekend includes a 2 hour evening adventure into nature in search of some close encounters..</p> <p><a href="http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses.php?c=17">http://isleofavalonfoundation.com/courses.php?c=17</a></p> <p><strong><em>Manon Tromp</em></strong><em> was born in the Netherlands, and is a writer, singer, coach, mother of two grown up children.

Total incompetence my end I'm afraid.&nbsp; So here it is again, hopefully restored to some degree of legibility.<br><br>As most of you may know, Lammas Day was on Saturday 1st August, traditionally a day when people used to take their freshly baked loaf of bread, made from the new crop of wheat to church for blessing.&nbsp; Hence the old name Loaf Mass Day.&nbsp; However, it's also a time of abundance in nature and this feeling of abundance is something we can all take to heart even in these times of economic hardship.&nbsp; <br><br>With this in mind, I've been talking to our <strong>new tutor Jonny Chuter,</strong> who is kindly going to run a one day workshop with us, entitled <strong>"What You Think About, You Bring About</strong>" based on his book "The Mind Menu", a practical guide to creating the life you want through the power of your thoughts.&nbsp; I'm sure this wonderful workshop will help create your own personal version of abundance!&nbsp; <br><br><strong>Date:&nbsp; Saturday 7th November 2009 / 10am - 5pm in Glastonbury.</strong><br><br>Learning to release your inner Inspired Entrepreneur is something our well-known author and mentor <strong>Nick Williams</strong> will be able to address in his amazing one day workshop <strong>"Become an Inspired Entrepreneur".</strong>&nbsp; With the skills you learn on this workshop you can start the journey to run your own business and be in control of your own abundance.<br><br><strong>Date:&nbsp; Sunday 20th September 2009 / 10.30am - 5.30pm in Glastonbury</strong><br><br><strong>Shahrukh Husain's</strong> one day workshop <strong>"How to Write a Book in Three Months</strong>" is proving very popular and so I know how many of you have inspirations to unleash that story inside of you; for those who have often though they'd love to write a book but don't know how to go about it, don't be shy, there's still places left for all you budding writers.<br><br><strong>Date:&nbsp; Sat 19th September 2009 / 10.30am - 5.30pm in Glastonbury</strong><br><br>If you have ever experienced Craniosacral therapy you will know how fantastic the results are.&nbsp; So, if you ever wondered what it is, how it works or just want to find out more about it, then <strong>Lynn Shorthouse's</strong> one day workshop <strong>"Silent Touch - An Introduction to Craniosacral Therapy"</strong> will enable you to do just this.&nbsp; This workshop is ideal for any therapists wanting CPD hours as certificates of attendance will be issued to those who need them.&nbsp; Lynn is an experienced Craniosacral practitioner and tutor and is looking forward to sharing her knowledge with you.<br><br><strong>Date:&nbsp; Saturday 26th September 2009 / 10am - 5pm in Glastonbury</strong><br><br>For those of you who are interested in the glorious Glastonbury landscape we would like to entice you down here for two fabulous forthcoming weekend workshops.<br><br><strong>Yoga &amp; Mindful Walking - Sat 22nd/Sun 23rd August 2009</strong><br><strong>Jennifer Hunter </strong>will open and close each day with energising and restorative yoga and <strong>Chris Trwoga</strong> will be giving you presentations on the legends of the landscape before taking you on a two hour walk in the afternoons.&nbsp; We are aiming to offer a visit to the internal and external landscapes to help recharge your batteries!<br><br><strong>Living the Glastonbury Zodiac - Sat 12th/Sun 13th September 2009</strong><br>Landscape legends, <strong>Anthony Thorley</strong> and <strong>John Wadsworth </strong>are offering a great experiential weekend.&nbsp; You will have the opportunity to walk two zodiacal figures and learn how to engage with the Zodiac as a sacred space.&nbsp; Anthony and John use film, music and drama to explore the historical and legendary Glastonbury Zodiac so we anticipate that this weekend will be abundantly fun too.<br><br>For further course information, please check out our website <a href="http://www.isleofavalonfoundation.com">www.isleofavalonfoundation.com</a><br><br>Wishing you all an abundance of love<br><br><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Penny</span></span><br><br><strong>Director/Office Manager</strong><br><br></p></p> </div> </div> <div class="footer-news"> <div class="footercolumn1"> <p><strong>&copy;
