Let’s celebrate our uniqueness within our unity.
Staying at a spacious bunkhouse barn which has its own private field leading down to the River Ribble.
One of the 3 peaks, Pen-y-ghent, is nearby – plenty of time to ramble or hike. There is a huge adjoining barn which has been converted as a dance and party space. Let’s celebrate!
I’ve invited great guest facilitators to help make the magic happen:
- art workshop leaders Angela and Simon Dawson
- world music dj Milena Dragic
- chi gong with the lovely Fran Holden
- AND … oh my gosh oh my gosh!
- ….Captain of the Lost Waves! is coming to share his gifts. An incredible performer who touches heart and soul with skill, passion and humour. Just brilliant. In terms of celebrating the joy and wonder of being alive – he’s the man. Check him out on youtube here
The camping barn can sleep 54 but numbers are limited to 24 to ensure everyone has a quieter bedroom and so our commUNITY can grow. Camping also available.
Delicious food and drinks all provided from 4pm Thursday 13 May.
I’ve managed to book an extra night – Wed 12 May at the camping barn in 2021. This extra night and day is optional – the retreat will really kick off on the Thursday afternoon. You’re free to choose if you’d like to come earlier. Personally I believe it’s well worth giving ourselves time to land, ramble around and do just as we please. You’ll only have to contribute another £30 for this extra night/day of freedom in the Yorkshire Dales – we can all bring food to share. From 4pm Thursday my fab crew and I will be sorting activites and catering. And we will all be ready to welcome those coming a bit later with open hearts and arms.
A long retreat – be it from the Wed or Thurs night – makes all the difference – this isnt a retreat to work as a salve for life, a temporary relief. Its more like a sacred medicine for your life, helping you get in touch with real joy and freedom. Potentially lifechanging.
Lift sharing will be enabled. Taxis from from Settle train station, the local town, cost around £8.
£324 early bird price (by the end of Oct 2020) – deposit £60, rest of money payable within one month of your deposit BUT/AND/HOWEVER payment Additional Wed night is another £30 if staying in the barn, £12 if camping in the field. Lucky early gatherers to bring food to share until retreat proper starts at 4pm on Thursday.
