patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

While studying for her fine art degree in Farnham  Morag met Meriel Gold (Hoare), a former pupil of Cecil Collins; ‘The Vision of the Fool’ and had the privilege to assist and collaborate with her giving the life drawing courses ‘drawnhome’, in both the U.K and New York.

Her background of study and exploration in movement and healing arts; Reiki, shamanism, meditation, shiatsu and cranial work have influenced and deepened her own experience and relationship to touch. This growing awareness has more recently moved her towards a profound journey and development in training as a Sexual Somatic Practioner.

This rich teaching and nourishing practice has allowed time to explore insights into the relationship of creativity, sexuality and sensuality. Out of which  small group workshops –  Meeting Nature’s Grace have grown. These gatherings  integrate a deeper more intimate approach. Blending body- energetic awareness work , drawing from life, movement, conversation and touch. Here we explore our edges of body perception, beauty, reality of our nakedness, our connection to creative source,  sexual energy and pleasure.

‘The soul has an absolute and unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment.’ – Thomas Moore
