Aywa to Cairo

Hello Beautiful People!

Well, another stretch of time has elapsed since my last post. I have truly stepped into the time paradigm of Cairo and life is as busy as ever.

I thought Ramadan would be quiet but I have been running a new course at Diwan, a monologue and short play course privately and also a novel writing workshop as well as my own writing and social situations.

I am now in the process of preparing several new courses to run at Diwan, Darb 1718 and a residential course at Sobek Lodge, Fayoum. And continuing with private students working on their own novels, monologues, plays and other writing.

Arts Residency Cairo is still hosting Marte Kjoell, the dancer, and soon to welcome Susan Vanhinsbergh, a life coach from England. Later in the autumn we will be saying hello to several international artists and writers; details to be posted soon.

We have been truly happy to have spent some time these last weeks in the presence of Mamoun Eltlib and Mazin Mustafa; two Sudanese writers of prominence.

Aywa to Cairo, aywa to Life :-))

Venus and Mars are two major planets that affect our relationships and our 'will to act'.
Venus, the goddess of love, reveals much about the way we approach relationships, romance, and love. Learning about Venus can go a long way towards understanding relationships.

The placement of Mars in a natal chart reveals what motivates and energizes individuals, how they express their drive, what they want, and how they go about getting what they want.

The Course

We will explore the dynamic of these important planets in our lives and how we can empower ourselves through working with their energy.

The sessions will use discussion, guided pathworking (meditation) and various creative mediums and we will also look at several mythological archetypes from various cultures; goddesses such as Aphrodite, Athena and gods such as Aries that can aid us in our understanding.

Places are limited to 10 people and each person will receive a natal chart so that we can look at the individual placement of their Venus and Mars in order to work with it.
