LIVING IN THE WILD Creative Weekend PROGRAMME:

FRIDAY NIGHT
6pm.    DINNER
After dinner we’ll relax beside the fire in the lounge, introduce ourselves and the Living in the Wild weekend.

SATURDAY
9:30am    A 30 minute introduction into the shapes, colours and images likely to be discovered in the beach, cliffs and bush around Piha.

A brief encouragement to explore our Wild surrounds to ‘capture’ the outward experience:  eg a photo, drawing, poem, symbol, story, metaphor etc.

Also, encouragement to consider ‘capturing’ something of your inward experience: ie what effect did it have on me?   What did I gain?  Was part of me eroded away?  Why?   And why now?

WE THEN GO AND DO WHATEVER WE FEEL LIKE DOING!

12:30pm    LUNCH

5pm Meet in the lounge to discuss our day and any outer and inner discoveries you may wish to share.

6pm DINNER – fireside

SUNDAY
9:30am We gather again for introduction to the day.  We disperse to further explore externally and/or internally.

Final sharing of the shapes/colours/forms/images that have inspired, challenged and/or guided us, and are transforming our lives and our world!

1pm LUNCH

2:30pm DEPART:  You will take a little piece of Piha magic home with you as you are ready to enjoy the transformative power of shapes, colours and images in our daily programmes with family, colleagues and friends.
