Trish on the Cowshed

“I began the cowshed experience with trepidation and ended it with new friends, new skills and a deeper appreciation of the complexity and beauty of language. The days in the cowshed had a magical quality; you left each day feeling uplifted, touched in a way that is hard to define, but which left a lingering feeling of wellbeing. Mark ‘s teaching style in the shed is a subtle blend of his wisdom, his technical knowledge and his life experience, creating an environment where people feel safe to share their stories over time. It seemed to me everyyone came away from the shed feeling more confident about their skills and more confident in themselves.” (Trish Carroll, June 2008)
