Welcome to the Village!

You don’t have to be a practising Buddhist to come, but a strong interest is encouraged.

Phase I, 28 July - 3 August 2017: Being with Body and Land

On our magical land on Dartmoor you are invited to help build our Village. There are structures to put up, kitchens to build, lodges to raise, land to clear, wood to chop and water to connect. A community spontaneously arises. The emphasis will be on activity; connecting with the land, sharing as a group, supporting each other in practise, play and work. We focus on little and often practise and explore how to relax and open in the heart of activity. This focus can really help support our everyday lives. We will have daily Kula meetings, morning meditation, evening activities, and time to unfold into this land. (Although Village I is a work retreat, retreatants and team are encouraged to stay on site.)
