WORKSHOPS, DRUMMING & RETREATS
MONTHLY DRUMMING GROUPS
Every Month on the Friday closest to the Full Moon there is a wonderful ongoing Women's full moon drumming group, infact there are these groups all over the world. We meet to share our thoughts and dreams, aspirations and struggles in a supportive and caring environment, much the same as women have done in different cultures for many thousands of years. We usually meet from 7:30 to 9:30pm in a yurt in Welwyn and the drumming part usually lasts for about two 20 minute sessions. In addition to drumming, the intention of which is to offer healing and prayer, we sometimes sing or chant. The group is not from any religious or cultural background, but we have had women attend from Sweden, France, Germany, Hungary, Africa, Denmark, USA and all parts of the UK. There are usually about 13 of us but there are over 100 women in the larger group who will attend other functions together from time to time all over the world. We welcome any local women who would like to join us. You do not need to have any experience or bring anything, and age is immaterial. The group has also been attended by women with disabilities, we will try to accommodate all.
There is a suggested donation of £8.
If you are interested in attending a session or a few, or would like some more information please email:

Please let us know if you are coming as places are very limited and will be offered on a first come first reserved basis. If you find close to the time you can not come let us know immediately as there is usually a waiting list.
We now run a 'New Moon Drumming Group' open to both men and women. Please reserve a place using the numbers above. We highly recommend this for couples as it very experiential for them to do together...
Moon Journeys was set up in 2008 to give women the chance to explore personal and transpersonal issues in a supportive environment and to take responsibility for their own self enquiry, learning and development. It was first set up by Gulli Hughes and myself, but Gulli has recently moved on to concentrate on Drum Making and craft workshops (information further down below). Mostly working in small groups, often with the resources of nature and our inspiring environment, we offer a wide programme of events and trips (some local and some not so local!) for people looking to explore their inner and outer landscapes. Previous trips have been to the Artic, Isle of Lewis, Dartmoor and there are many more planned for the next year or two! Check out 'Previous Events' to see some photos from the trips and here how it got on!
Here are some and their dates:
If you would like more information or like to book a place or two on any of the courses email or ring one of the below. We will get back to you as quickly as possible:

We hold various workshops throughout the year, run by external people, they involve anything from drum making to Shamani Heart Workshops. They are very popular and successful meetings and recommend them to anyone who would like to have a go. Bring along your friends and learn a thing or two! And leave with something you've made too!
Here are a list of upcoming dates and programmes we have planned:
