Laurel’s latest retreats, May, June and October 2017

Do try to get on to a retreat with Laurel this year, if you can! I can highly recommend her approach from many years of enjoying her teaching – and also, having experienced several other teachers. She has a unique – strangely relaxing and playful –  teaching style. Gill Adams, website editor

Guest tutor, harpist Steph West, teaches Mo Ghile Mear to Laurel’s students in October 2016, in Acton, West London. It’s an old Irish song written by the poet Seán Clárach Mac Domhnaill (c. 1691-1757) as a lament for the exiled Bonnie Prince Charlie.mo-ghile-mear
