Late Summer- Fall 2019 thru Spring 2020
Having just returned from another magical St Ives weekend immersed in Virginia Woolf, I am inspired anew by the rare luxury of being in a beautiful place with a group of wonderful minds encountering a work of literature intensely together.
I leave these weekends gasping: they are full on (even as we build in down-time)—the intense engagement with the book fills and expands the mind. There is the added stimulus of the place and the experience of the group: joining together, coming to know each other, pushing against each other, clarifying one’s own thoughts and perspectives as they rub up against others…each retreat feels larger than the actual time—and we are so fully awake.
Here are some participant reflections from this past weekend:
“Thank you Toby for this caring, well organised, managed tour de force VW weekend…”
“Toby you are incredible! it was a wonderful two days which felt like a week…. such a great bunch of women and so interesting. friendships made, insights gained…. lighthouse reached…. perfect…… hope you get some proper down time. thank you thank you!”
Below you will find some of the coming courses– both travelling and in London…always happy to hear feedback on the offerings and what is of interest. Most of the following should be posted and available for registration in the next week.
