State Theta Galleries

March 2010

Dear [fname],

Welcome to our March newsletter.

As some of you will know, the Spring Term will be finishing this coming week (8th-12th March). This is slightly earlier than originally planned due to my trip to California to continue my studies with Anna Halprin.

Whilst in America I will be participating in a special workshop, facilitating the Planetary Dance which was devised by Anna Halprin and peacemakers around the world as a community ritual and prayer for peace.

Prior to my trip I will be facilitating the Planetary Dance in Edinburgh on 13th March as part of the Festival of Middle Eastern Spirituality and Peace.

As part of this festival we are currently running the exhibiton 'Renovation and Transformation' featuring photography, paintings and poetry influenced by the Halprin Life Art Process. More....

We would like to offer a big thank you to Pauline Jaffrey who has written a wonderful article on State Theta Galleries in the Spring 2010 edition of East Lothian Life (Issue 71)

Special Notice.

The writer and film-maker, Alan Ereira, who made the inspirational and educational film 'The Heart of the World' in 1991 has been asked by the Elder Brothers to return to the Sierra Nevada to make a follow up documentary on the Kogi people and their concerns for the health of our planet.
