BRLSI 16-18 Queen Square, Bath, Bath & North East Somerset, United Kingdom

A second edition appeared in 1640 but this reordered the poems, combined many of them together to make longer poems, added titles, and in certain cases altered their wording. And it was in this ‘reworked’ form that the vast majority of Shakespeare’s readers encountered his sonnets until Edmund Malone’s edition of 1780.

Systemic Constellations Workshop

BRLSI 16-18 Queen Square, Bath, Bath & North East Somerset, United Kingdom

Systemic Constellations or Family Constellations work, in part, is a practice of seeing things as they are, in a greater contextual story of intergenerational belonging. It opens our hearts and imaginations beyond how we have experienced the story of our life so far, from an individual perspective, and cultivates a collective and relationally orientated lens on intergenerational trauma, love, loss and longing.
