Space to Be
Space to Play

Garden Journey - a thoughtful exploration for young peopleAn important aim of Breathing Space is to give people Space. The world often seems to be spinning faster and our lives are filled with more things to do. More pressures. We think that it is important to take time, to mull over ideas in order to get our creative juices really flowing.

Our response to this is to include opportunities for creative reflection and thinking. Often what emerges from these times will be action (or even renewed understanding). But the outcome is not the aim. The aim is to allow ourselves time to reflect - so that our own creativity can emerge.

You can explore examples of how we do this using the links on the left.

"I would like to propose a large (think Stonehenge) mechanical clock, powered by seasonal temperature changes. It ticks once a year, bongs once a century, and the cuckoo comes out every millennium."
