The Art of Wanting
'to be running breathlessly toward, but not yet arrived is itself delightful, a suspended moment of living hope...'
with Emma Philbin Bowman and Simon Courtney
a comprehensive course on Teachable, with 8 live sessions on zoom
Saturday mornings, 9-11am, October 16-Dec 11 2021
The Art of Wanting offers a rare opportunity to engage with a theme that touches all of us deeply: how we may live in more authentic, healthy dialogue with our longings and desires.
Psychotherapist, Writer and Facilitator, Emma Philbin Bowman created this course in response to how easily we can neglect this crucial element in our lives. She and Simon are delighted to be offering a new live group on Saturday mornings from mid-October.
We have found wanting is a particularly valuable theme to explore in a safe, contained and intentional group. This deepens our sense of the range of each theme and expands our empathy with ourselves and others.
The course is carefully designed to support each participant's unique journey. Each week contains:
- a fresh module on teachable organised in brief, digestible kernels
- our live meeting where we work with the material in the full group and smaller breakout sessions
- thematic guided meditations for a slower, more embodied process
- 'Optional Deepening' section for a more comprehensive treatment of the theme

“The live sessions are what made the big difference… I loved the group element and the noticing of similar and different themes and the way they all seemed to add to the richness of the theme - the “we” element was very powerful.”
