We also have a number of workshops and courses running through spring:
The solstices represent the two pivotal turning points of the year. This is easy to understand when we use the cycle of the breath as an example: the winter solstice can be likened to the end of the year’s exhale. After the winter solstice, the earth begins to inhale, continuing to do so until she reaches the summer solstice, after which time, the exhale begins again. All of our cycles: the seasons, the moon, a woman’s body, our life cycle, the tide, the breath, they all follow this same pattern of growth followed by retreat. Part of the problem with modern society and its rampant capitalism is that it does not follow this pattern. There is only room for growth in the model of capitalism, but without these times of rest and retreat, the system becomes cancerous and destructive and out of control.
This is why the solstices are so important and were celebrated as such by our ancestors. Although we will remain in the darkest months for some time after the solstice, this point marks the return of growth, of light, the turning of the year.

The following weekend, Swamp Circus are holding Cornwall Circus Camp at Chyan from Thursday 1st June to Sunday 4th June.
“Swamp Circus is offering a holiday with a difference, set in idyllic Cornish countryside near Falmouth. Have a go at high wire, swinging trapeze and aerial silks. Learn the arts of trick-cycling, acrobatics and juggling. Enjoy morning yoga sessions and an evening sauna by the river. Great for beginners as well as those who want to hone their skills. Be entertained in our big top, gorge yourself on local organic delicacies, then relax and unwind in our saunas and solar showers.”
