An online gathering in the Bone Cave

Saturday February 27, 2021

14.30 – 19.00 UK time

An online gathering to explore our unique gift and purpose

Ancient European traditions tell us that each of us came to this life with what the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe called a ‘holy longing’: an urgent calling, a personal gift, a unique image which we carry with us, like a necessary candle, to illuminate this world at this challenging time. In this gathering, we’ll explore the ways in which we might uncover and harness that holy longing inside.

how it works

Join my virtual fire circle from 14.30 to 19.00 UK time (9.30 am to 2 pm US Eastern time; 6.30 am to 11 am US Pacific time. Please search the web to discover UK time equivalents in other parts of the world; we can’t do this for you). 

Our gathering will take place via Zoom, in a format which enables us to enjoy each other’s faces, and to break out into discussion groups to deepen our connections with other participants. There will be a 40-minute break halfway through the event; during this time, if you’d like to, you can participate in an additional optional breakout discussion with other participants.

A recording will be available to all participants afterwards, so if you can’t make it live you’ll still be able to enter into the richness of the experience.

Our gathering will include story, poetry, teachings, participant discussion groups and creative prompts. You’ll also have access to a web page with useful resources.


The fee for attendance is £30. Please follow the link below to make your payment using any credit or debit card. (For those of you in other countries: currency exchange rates change by the hour, and so we’re not able to tell you what the cost of this course is in your currency.
