Would you love to be more creative and innovative? Would you love to create what you really love? Would you love to stop struggling and start living magically? During Darren’s workshop you’ll discover that your imagination is your greatest gift. You will learn you how to use the power of your imagination to: • Free yourself from your limiting behaviours and addictions • Take the power out of your unconscious beliefs • Create what you really love effortlessly and magically • Discover your creative expression • Be more decisive and innovative Darren will lead you through a magical exercise that will enable you to immediately apply the power of your imagination into your life. You will have the ability to create the end results you love; and be able to bring them to life effortlessly and magically. About Darren Darren always dreamed of living an extraordinary life and assumed the secret lay somewhere within the realms of spirituality and success. He spent most of his teens and twenties studying economics, business, politics, and technology; and at the same time, he immersed himself into every personal and spiritual development program available. By his early thirties, he created a successful career as a change management consultant in the IT industry and experienced an incredible array of spiritual disciplines; however, the extraordinary life he constantly searched for kept eluding him. It wasn’t until he learnt how to master his imagination that he was able to create the life of his dreams. Since 2000 Darren’s singular passion has been the mastery of the principles of imagination. Over the course of twenty years, he has had the privilege of working with extraordinary people from all around the world. During that time, he has served each person to master their imagination and transform their life into a magnificent work of art. Darren lives in Devon with his wife, Joanna, and his son, Atlas, where he spends his time enjoying his family, running his workshops and trainings, learning and playing music, indulging in the culture and myths of Europe, and creating a vibrant and magical community. www.darreneden.com/ www.youtube.com/c/darreneden/ Details The social part of the evening starts at 7pm.

Summer Social - Punting

Cherwell Boathouse

The picture captures the fun (LOL). We meet at the Cherwell Boathouse at 6.30pm, and once we're complete we decide how many boats we need and who goes with whom, and off we go. If we make it to the Victoria Arms (of course we will - haha), the reward is a drink and a gathering by the river. We then punt back and finish at 9pm (ish). This is always a lot of fun. Children, partners, parents, all welcome to join us. The amount to pay for the boats will be somehow fairly divided by the people attending. Should the weather not permit a punt, we just go for a drink and have fun anyway :)
