'I came away from the weekend feeling inspired to follow my own creative path." Participant
Welcome to Mairi Campbell's unique weekend retreats, based on the tranquil Scottish island of Lismore, Argyll, Scotland.
Are you feeling frustrated, wanting to find your edge or consolidate what you know? With your instrument(s), voice and words I facilitate ways for the group to share, create and be witnessed. There is no 'level' requirement, only a spirit of willingness.
I'm calling my 2016's courses 'Form and Freedom. All creative work is a combination of form and freedom. Whether it's a song of verse and chorus or a reel of exactly 32 bars. I have found forms which are really helpful to guide and help focus our free choice, or choices based on memory. This dance between form and freedom allows much to happen. Drawing on our innate wisdom, stories, sounds and movements, we play, release and reflect.
The expressive arts is an age old way of creating community. There is a glorious richness and satisfaction in feeling that what we are is enough. It's important to notice that, celebrate it and find ways to share it.
That's what I do - find ways for you to be seen and heard and for the group to create in the moment using forms and frameworks that I teach over the course.
It may be that technique will assist your next step, or developing your hearing, or discovering that your body is telling you a lot more than you realised, or that your voice has all this colour in it when you move first......
Everyone's experience is unique.
MAX 7 PARTICIPANTS PER COURSE.
