Stories From Bringing it Home

This is where you’ll find some of the personal stories of our students, how the journey is moving within them in their lives. The journals and images are from our current student Ashleigh Downey, an ecological artist.

At the bottom of each story you will find deepening video conversations between Sky and Marielke who is one of our current apprentices (after having completed the immersion last year), which we are currently recording. The South-East video is up with the South to follow soon on Dec 16th we hope!
