I facilitate ‘Day Workshops’ in small groups of 6-8 people.
'The school’s holistic curriculum effectively promotes and supports student learning. The curriculum is underpinned by a Virtues Programme that recognises all people as spiritual beings with unique potential.'

"I had the pleasure of having a two night, three day retreat on the virtues programmed hosted by Judy Dixon. I was excited and eager to experience and gain knowledge on my spiritual journey and I learned in abundance! Set in the most beautiful surroundings, Judy who really knows about love and communication, is amazing. I would recommend this course to anyone who desires to go within themselves to find out who they are and learn how to create authentic relationships based on love not fear. If you are ready to learn there is a wonderful teacher, Judy, to guide you on your journey of life."

I speak to groups of all sizes.
“A wonderful opportunity to be immersed in the authentic conversations and experiences that truly feed the soul! What a joy to take time out to reflect, rebalance and reconnect. ”
“When we listen with less judgement, we always develop better relationships with each other. It’s not differences that divide us. It’s our judgement about each other that does. Curiosity and good listening bring us back together.”
