Languages of Nature, Languages of Art

Reconnect with nature through this six-day movement-sound exploration workshop, guided by expert teacher Rebecca R Burrill.

our approach

We are committed to provide nurturing spaces for inner inquiry into the true nature of ourselves and the power we have to create. Understanding the multi-dimensional aspects of the whole and complete self, we equip ourselves and unlock the higher potential.  When the natural order of one’s inner world is understood it becomes effortless to open to greater purpose and develop our higher potential. We believe that by developing self-awareness, and personal truth we create the essential foundation for inner transformation and empowerment to occur naturally.  Through inner transformation we can feel confused, isolated, and helpless, but with our experience and support we offer the resources, environment and expertise to help you through your transition and growth.

Cluny Hill is located on the hill above Forres in the county of Moray in north-east Scotland.

Our closest town is Forres (0.7 miles miles/1.1km), which has good bus and rail links. The nearest airports are Inverness (24 miles/38km) and Aberdeen (71 miles/114km).

We recommend taking a taxi (about a 5-minute drive from Forres train station), as there’s no direct bus route.
