Striking the Balance
Sunday 23rd – Saturday 29th July 2023
A summer week for all ages with workshops, talks, stories, music and crafts
After a long summer’s day, the sun falling over the horizon can feel like a very special moment, a perfect image for a perfect time. Whilst the length of day and night changes throughout the year, we discover a rhythm through the different months, revealing the harmony between the seasons.
Striking the balance in life is more than the weighing and measuring of life’s primary concerns or placing them on a giant set of scales. We might initially think of striking a work-and-life balance, somehow contrasting one’s work with ‘real life’. We might think of balancing our inner and outer wellbeing or personal time and social commitments.
But we use the phrase striking the balance sensing that balance in life is not necessarily easy as it means personal intervention, a conscious effort to bring divergent forces into a coherent balanced whole. Strengthening the fulcrum point which lives within us all to help guide us through life.
Together we will discover what it takes to “Strike the Balance” through lectures, conversations, many craft and musical activities. Adults and children will all contribute to creating a rich new tapestry of knowledge and friendship during our Lifeways week.
