“I danced under the sheltered canopy of Beech trees this afternoon, my eyes scanning the forest floor and finding fragile bird skulls and majestic pheasant feathers, chalk, flint, moss, wet mulchy leaves and dark brown earth. Woodsmoke wove into the weft of my clothes. I felt a beautiful expansive connection with my fellow dancers, with the surrounding ancient landscape and my trusty senses. Thank you" Wendy 2014

“I danced and danced in a clearing on the South Downs with a group of dancers, facilitated by two amazing people who took us through not only the wave of the dance but also through the conscious processes of cleansing and letting go..... I just wanted to share how powerful the dance was for me, truly amazing- thank you for holding the space” Participant 2014
"Very short and sweet email just to say you popped into my thoughts and I wanted to say hello and let you know that things all began to fall into place for me after we worked with you on Rites of Passage…I ended up getting work helping to manage a community art space and had lots of scope setting up my own community and education programmes. It was quite beautiful how I had begun to draw all of this before it happened through Rites of Passage. I have just taken on my biggest role yet at XXXXXX(hidden for privacy) setting up a young peoples programme. I really think there was something very important about the space you created for us all .... Thanks so much for your generosity and vision, its so needed in the world and it makes stuff happen!!" -Laura 2019
