About:

Editor: Hazel Marshall

The Raincloud of Knowable Things is the third book in a series. All of them contain profound material presented by the authors as experiential workshops long before that term became familiar. What is important is that the material taps into something hard-wired and archetypal, containing timeless stuff. It continually communicates to new audiences and I believe it deserves a wider readership. Personally, I have found that the workshops do not date but survive the test of time: in being run steadily over the years since Ian’s death they have proved their continuing excellence, working well for participants, myself included. Thanks to Hazel Marshall’s sensitive editing they have now been published as nearly as possible in their original form, preserved for the future.
