Workshops, retreats and day programmes offer a unique combination of nature based experiences combined with a self-reflective theme. They draw on the use of poetry to give focus, drawing and group sharing to help firm up the path ahead, by spending time in nature, with forest and river, a place to find a slower rhythm of being, as they refresh, revitalise and ground us. There are several options for accommodation for workshops and retreats longer than a day. We can offer individual bedrooms in the farm cottage, house, as well as a house bus. Otherwise there are several B&B options close by. Or you can lower the fee cost and camp in your own tent.
