The Phoenix Firewalk (located near the Community Garden)
The Phoenix Firewalk is run by husband and wife team Barry and Marina Collins. Barry is a certified Master Firewalk Instructor and Marina is a Firewalk Instructor. With a background spanning over a decade in personal development and having studied with some of the biggest names in the field, their unique approach ensures an indelible experience that will stay with you for a lifetime. The team will be providing a unique opportunity to empower people to take control of their own inner peace and happiness in a way that demonstrates the opportunities that many people miss because they are so fixated on what they perceive as their reality. For a select few there will be an opportunity to experience focus and ‘paying attention’ in a way few experience on a daily basis by walking on a bed of broken glass, as well as a few other surprises. Not to be missed!
Alison Smith - Landscaping Your Life walk (30 minutes)
If it’s time to turn a corner in an area of your life, if you’re tired of going round in circles or you simply can’t see the wood for the trees why not join Alison Smith for a gentle walk to transform the current situation. As we walk, we’ll be using nature as our coach as we allow nature’s landscapes to help us tap into our inner wisdom, and help release the blocks to moving forward.
(and all done without the need to share anything about the current situation with anyone.)
Changeworks – soap felting workshops (located in the courtyard)
Changeworks, Burntisland will be on hand to offer advice on reducing your use of energy and other resources and will also be offering free mini workshops to show you how to make felted soap, a plastic free alternative to soap dispensers, making your bar of soap last longer (and eliminating that ‘soap gunk’!). Felting your soap adds a protective, light and natural exfoliating layer that shrinks as you use it. Eventually all that’s left is a small ball of woolly fluff, so no mushy bar of melted goo or tiny unusable shards of soap left in the soap dish.We will provide all materials so you can take your very own felted bar home with you.
Gail McLeod – The Healing Tree (located in the Community Garden)
The Healing Tree offers Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki, taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing and working with you to identify your individual needs. Throughout life we encounter many different challenges which can result in us holding these experiences both physically and emotionally within our bodies, which can have a lasting effect on our wellbeing.
It’s essential to support the healing process that we evaluate where these blockages exist and support the release of these stresses on the body in a gentle and support way. Wendy will be offering taster sessions of 15 mins for £5 or 30 mins for £10 on the day.

Liz will be available at 'Your peace, our place' to discuss what each of these practices offer to the individual and you will be able to join in shamanic drumming sessions too, as she will have plenty of drums with her on the day – no experience is necessary, beginners are welcome!

Sarah Wedderburn-Ogilvy, women's full moon circle (located at The Earthship)
The circles of women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we're weak and sing with us when we are strong." - Sark
Together, we can help each other grow. Women’s Circles are a growing phenomenon throughout the Western World, replicating a structure that has been seen throughout human history, and across cultures. They are a safe space for women to join together, to be seen and heard for who they are, without judgement. Whether you are coming from a place of needing to heal, or to help heal and to grow in your own power, there is a space in Circle for you.
Join Sarah Wedderburn-Ogilvy at this Circle gathering especially for 'Your peace our place' attendees, just after the Full Sturgeon Moon – where we will be sharing our stories and celebrating the harvest period. We will participate in ritual, meditation and the sharing circle before closing with a healing chant. At the heart of Circle is the intention to create a community in which you feel supported and able to explore your true self.
