"How am I going to live today
in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to?"
Tony Robins

Karin Werner is running her last course of Healing Through Art this coming August.  She has been enriching the College course and the lives of many people for over 10 years and has now decided to embark on a new journey of artistic expression and healing.
Karin Werner

In her own words: “Art making is bigger than I can comprehend; it belongs to all humanity and gives a glimpse into the future: an uninterrupted flow of movement, discovery, more movement, learning, beautiful mistakes, surprise and wonder.  These states make life precious and our body-mind happy. The most suitable name for what I have been teaching and sharing for many years is Healing through Art.  Healing gives context to our immersion in the act of creating, it provides self-forgetfulness and self-knowledge, and so we learn to practice life's artistic skills.” 

We would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to this amazing woman, artist, and therapist.  May this new period of her life be filled with happiness and new opportunities, and may many still benefit from the gifts she offers.

On the Money - How to design successful Community Currencies
Local money gives us a proven tool to deal with the effects of financial crises, community breakdown, climate change and peak oil. It supports communities to use their own assets to solve local problems, meet local needs and achieve local goals: everything from community gardens to renewable energy and local economic regeneration. This five-day workshop introduces you to the essential design skills for creating resilient community currencies that last. Together we’ll discover the wealth at the heart of our communities and learn how to mobilise it to benefit everyone.
