The Spider Glass - update
In August 2018 I took my one man show, The Spider Glass, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
I am deeply proud of the show, having taken me two years to create and I gave a lot of emotional energy - all of which I was happy to give again ... to another project. It's important to know when it's time to say goodbye.
The Spider Glass may spin its web again in some form, but not right now and likely not by me.
Thank you all who made the show possible, notably my friend and director Joshua Cooper, the Kickstarter donors and the many others I am privileged to call my friends.

Young Men Matter
Across the 2018/2019 academic year I had the privilege of being invited to run The Story of Masculinity workshops at Gloucestershire College.
Working closely with the staff and engaging with hundreds of students across all GC's three campuses, it confirmed to me how important it is for young men to have spaces where they can feel head, express their honest views and discover the shared pressures that come with being a modern day man.
I have been informed that many positive and enlightening discussions occurred in the days and weeks that followed the sessions. If you're institution is interested in learning more about these workshops, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Lofoten Yoga Festival
In one of the world's most mythic landscapes, the town of Svolvær in the UNESCO protected Lofoten Islands, I had the pleasure of being invited to teach at the inaugural Yoga Festival last weekend. The perfect landscape to share some stories!
Teaching three workshops (Intro to Meditation, Stories We Tell and Metta & Gratitude Meditation) I was astonished this was the first festival - it was so organised and the joy amongst the yoga, meditation and overall connection in the community of the weekend was something to be truly grateful for and an honour to witness.
Not having a great deal of yoga experience myself didn't matter - my partner delivering the 'Partner Yoga' session with me as her subject showed this! - it was nourishing to find my own way into the practice.
Organised by Maria and Andrea of Min Yoga Lofoten (My Yoga Lofoten), in 2015 they wanted to bring yoga to the region - a practice that was previously not considered. "We want to offer yoga to everyone and share some of yoga's therapeutic aspects."
And that they have - living proof that if you have a passion for something and want to help others participate and collaborate in something that nurtures community and self-care, it is possible.
