Workshops and coachings

Latest – 28th March 2019: well there’s philosophy and then there’s everything else – why philosophy???… But I had to offer this:Metaphysics/philosophy discussion group starting Thursday  around 7pm at Dreamspace 61 Carnarvon St Gisborne. All welcome at least once! For free! I’ll introduce our Round Table in the Dreamspace Library for creative discussion of ANY topic, and then share my journey through Western philosophy (I’ve been ‘certified’! – MA in philosophy Auckland 1995) – and a bit of Eastern. Then I hope we can explore and have real ‘adventures of ideas’ together.

21/2/2019  Latest is Wizard Workshops, which will include ‘Apprentishops’ – lower cost extended trainings in the different fields, with grades up to Master – informal but real. Like a play/amateur apprenticeship. Watch this space for upcoming! The first ever short workshop/talk is on this Saturday 23rd Feb 2019 at 7 pm – ‘On Coming Out as a Creator and even making money in the coming Arts & Crafts Renaissance…’
