12.15 to 1.15  The Fool Expression Workshop with Christie Animas

How much of yourself are you actually able to access?
Do you long for more energy in your life?
Do you long for more inspiration?

The Fool Expression is calling us as human to access the Unicity in ourselves, and learn to play with the masks in us, some known, some not known yet.

The Fool is this part of us that has no fear, if she/he has fear, she/he will learn to play with it, to show up within all the different aspects of being a Human Being. One foot in the known, one foot in the unknown.

To be able to access our Inner Fool, to have the freedom of being fully alive at each moment and sharing that with an audience, we meet and learn to play with a range of masks: the mask of ourselves who holds us back; the ones who long to show up; the one who keeps us small; the one who wants to share the uniqueness and subtlety of our being; the mask who knows; the mask who doesn't know...

My vision is to bring people to connect deeper with themselves and with others, to gather the village together and play on stage for each other, whatever needs to be played. In this Introduction, I will invite the participants to deepen their relation with the body, learn some of the basics of the Fool's Way on stage, explore and learn to play with the different masks/ personalities in ourselves as we step on a stage, and explore the relation with an audience.

After the workshop, participants will feel nourished and inspired by their Inner Player. They will feel supported by their connection with the audience and will be ready to play more.

Welcome to a magic and surprising Fool-filling journey !

I have a background in art, music and therapeutic approach ( Brussels, Belgium). The last 7 years I have specialised in creative and embodied personal development practice to support people to connect with their essence, their power and their connection with Nature. Since 2010 I trained in Voice Dialogue in Dorset and am now staffing on the training. I trained for 5 years with Franki Anderson in the way of the fool and started teaching a year and half ago. My workshop are called “ Fool Expression”. I have created and gathered an expanding, vibrant community of players in the Devon area.

The first time I ever heard the gongs I was in awe of the incredibly powerful effect they had on me physically and emotionally, (in fact I came away and started to laugh from a deep internal authentic place within me and continued to laugh into the following day)! I just knew that the gongs were a path I was just about to take.


I have had an interested in sound and used various modalities of sound for the last 20 years on myself, also chanting mantras, and have during this time found vibration so powerful in its effects on both the mind and the body. I also noticed that with the vibrations and sound of the gongs especially, following a session that various aches and pains in my body improved and would disappear and this continues the more gonging that I do.

I have completed many different trainings over the last 20 years (including hypnotherapy, EFT, counselling, Shamanic trainings amongst other qualifications) and profound effect on the body and although they were all good in their own right, the gongs were so different and so powerful.

4.00 to 5.00 Shakti Dance with Christie Animas (Women Only)


Shakti represents the feminine life energy which moves through the universe giving birth to nature, power, movement, flow and change. Since many generations, this natural force has been pushed down, judged and feared.

This Shakti Dance is a free form of dance movement. This particular Shakti Dance (there are several different variations) comes from the work of Jewels Wingfield, based on the energy of the spiral and rooted in earth based connection (it is not Yoga). It is a practice to support women to (re)discover a deeper sense of their feminine principle that is rooted in earth based connection.

During the dance session I will be offering a warm, safe environment for women to connect deeper into their mystery and all that comes with it.

" Christie hold the space miraculously and with the feeling of such ease. She creates a safe and open space. Her presence is grounding and calm. Her speech is passionate, slow, and comes from a place of experience and knowing. "

Dancing to dynamic rhythms will journey you to the higher and lower worlds, connecting you to Mother Earth and your own Sanctuary. We dance the medicine of the Celtic wheel by feeling and expressing the elements of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. The music, the sound, the dance will awaken your spirit, bring mental clarity and emotional well-being.  Healing and food for your soul.
